Bedroom Tweaked & Finds

 I've been finding more Christmas...the Christmas Tea treasures I'm keeping for the Christmas tea party at church...The teapot was only $2.00  WHAT a Deal!!! Perfect shape!

More Christmas. Sweet as can be stockings :)  I'm keeping the drinking glass, but you already knew that. LOL!!

This wall was too "naked"...and boring...

Better don't you think! The center iron piece I bought when I was with Linda & Faye. The other pieces I've been saving for just the right spot!

Worked my duty day...sold a Jiffy peanut butter jar...the rest of the week I'm getting ready for the Girlfriend 60th Birthday weekend. We will be going to a Class of '73 - 60th Birthday party that I'm helping with at a sports bar on Saturday evening. Sunday just us girlfriend's are going on a Breakfast cruise on a local lake. Friday evening is "Happy Hour" at my home. I haven't seen one of the girlfriends for 10 years!!! Throw in a little shopping, eating, and catching up!!! FUN ~ FUN ~ FUN!!!

Hasn't the month flown by...I sure think so! I hope you all have a great week!!!

p.s. Another dear friend has ovarian cancer and surgery is Friday, if anyone would hold her up in prayer, you know I would deeply appreciate it! X0 Thank you!!!

Recent Finds

This little guy was a recent find on the milkweed that we are "growing" in the yard! I'll have to start looking for the cocoon :)

This is a vintage church "offering" bowl. It has a long handle to reach across the pew to gather the offering! It goes well with my church board!

Haven't bought buttons for awhile. I' trying my "hand" at games...

and some chintz for my collection! They had a tea pot, but it was chipped. I adore the square plates!

I met up with a couple of bloggers, Linda and Faye on Friday and we went treasure hunting. None of us took any photos...too busy talking! It was a pretty humid day, but that didn't stop us!

Another busy week, just like everyone else! So thankful the humidity went down. It was a perfect summer day! We went to the flea market early morning.

I forgot what I need to do to change my photo on my blog...can anyone help me out?! Must be a "age" thing! LOL!!

Keep Enjoying the summer!!
Keep cool,

Last week I was able to meet, Oliva, from Oliva's Creative Quest blog and sidekick, Jack.  It was a fun few hours of chatting and crafting! Thanks Oliva and Jack!!!

Update on sister....she is still having chemo treatments. I thought she was done, but not for another few weeks. Surgery sometime Sept(?)...

It going to be very HOT & HUMID the next few days around goal is to stay COOL!

China cabinet redo & Races

I've been wanting to paint the inside of this cabinet for YEARS and finally did it...before above

 After with all the treasures back in place. I wasn't going to put the lace trim up, but it looked to bare without it. Fresh, clean and thinned out!

I was at Elko Speedway in New Market on the 4th with daughter & SIL...I LOVE racing :) 
 Since it was the 4th they had motorcycle as an extra feature...they would do complete flips in the air!
