Giveaway win & "new wheels"!!


I recently won a giveaway that Linda from A Swap For All Seasons had featuring a "spring theme"...Thank you, Linda! I've already made a card from a couple of the items above! It came in an green egg! What fun!

 A recent find was the "new little red wheels" above! It's a darling little bike that I bought at an estate sale. I just need to find a basket and it will go in the front garden...too cute...



Another recent find were these vintage iron patio furniture. There is also a bench that needs to have it's leg screwed back on! I just love the old iron pieces and hope they are comfortable :)

Update on sister:  she was in the hospital for 3 days, not the 4-6 as originally thought! Yup...more answers to prayers. She is at home and will have a health nurse visiting her! THANK You and PRAISE the LORD!

I've also "tweaked" the bedroom. Found a mirror and shelf. I'm also getting the house ready for a birthday party on Saturday...I'll show you what I did in the sun room to make it look "pretty"...(sad face from hubby!)

Okay, I'll post again soon...
warmly,
deb

Ohhhh, such a cute bike! I have an old red one in my yard, but it is not even as cute as this one! So happy you are finding cute things. And, HURRAH for your dear sister - that she is on the mend and feeling better. Thank you for inviting us to pray with you.

Aren't you having fun finding lovely treasures! Love that bike and your lawn furniture. I can't wait to see more of your home projects too. Continued prayers for your sister's healing and recovery.

So glad your sister is doing so well! That is an answered prayer, Deb.
Love that bike- I just love a bike in the garden. Believe it or not-Walmart had some cute bike baskets last year..they looked like real wicker but were that poly stuff-couldn't tell til you got up close to them though...perfect for outside.
Can't wait to see what you did with the bedroom. xo Diana

Hi Deb, great news on your sister. Yes answer to prayers.
Love the swap you received in the big egg. I love the bike you found too and the garden furniture is a treasure. I have been looking here but so far they have been very expensive. I'll keep looking.
Looking forward to seeing the tweak in your bedroom and sun room.
Hugs, CM

Tammy's Vintage Finds said...

Hi Deb! Glad to hear the news about your sister. I love all of your finds, especially the cast iron patio furniture. I've always wanted a set like that, but they are too expensive here, when you can find them. The bike will look great in the yard. I know you have a thing for red vintage bicycles!

Annette said...

Wow, you had a good week. The iron furniture reminds me of our home in Alabama with white iron furniture on the porch.
So happy about your sis!!!

Susie said...

Deb, I love your sweet finds. The chairs and table are great. I love the little bike, lots. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie
p.s Hope your sister is doing well.

I'm so glad to hear that your sister is doing so well after her surgery. God does answer prayers.
Your bike is a dream and will look cute in the garden. I love that look, too. Flowers spilling out of the basket.....swoon!
Linda does the best gift packages..I miss being in the swaps. I'll get back to it when I can.
Have a good rest of the week. Hope the sun is shining where you are.
