Recent Finds & Mantle for Now

 While we haven't gone to many estate sales, the picking have been poor and slim. Recent finds above for the shops...

 I LOVED watching the Benny & Cecil cartoons and have my own little collection. The Cecil doll has his own disguise kit to play with. The music box doesn't play music and the book is in tough shape, but I LOVE my collection!

 A couple of weeks ago we bought 2 stain glass windows. They are so pretty! One is at Antique Mn for sale if anyone wants one. The other one at home, if interested, you can email me...

The Valentine decor is put away...and these are on my mantle now. Very simple...with Easter around the corner, I thought this would work until I put up my Easter treasures. I do like my "girls". Do you like the cigar box that says, "dreams"...pretty cool!

This coming week is going to be FUN with Friends! Wednesday, lunch with Ginger, Thursday treasure shopping with 2 blogging friends, one I haven't met before, Friday lunch with church girls, along with favorite son in love's birthday!! Tuesday is a duty day. The week will fly by!!!

Lunch at the Cheesecake Factory yesterday was very good!  We brought home slices of cheese cake and had those for our "dinner"!! Thank you Marge for the gift certificate!!!

I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day!

Your mantle is fun! After today I will do a little something for St. Patrick's Day on the mantle. Looking forward to doing that tomorrow. Love the pretty embroidery!

Loving those suitcases and linens you found!

MiamiKel said...

Hi Deb, I just stumble on your beautiful blog from visiting Linda and wish I'd seen it earlier! So much to see! I love garage sailing and thrift storing to see what I can find to repurpose or recreate into something different - your creations are just wonderful, especially those stain glass windows and mantle! I also have a JRT named Buddy and he's the love of my life, after my kids :)
I'm a new follower and looking forward to your future posts!
Blessings ♥
