First finds of 2016


Pretty sunset last night. The days are getting longer...yippee!!




The pickin's were slim when hubby and I went out to a couple of estate sales.  That is okay as I am STILL trying to reduce the inventory that is sitting in the family room.



I was very happy to find more Valentines  :)  at a very low price .

Yesterday it was 41 and wonderful. Looking forward to spring. Easter is in March this year. I like it better when it is in April  :) We might have a winter snow tomorrow and Wednesday. The good with the bad.

I was so surprised to see how many followers went away because of the changes. Why can't "THEY" just leave us bloggers alone?  Anyway...Happy February!!

warmly,
deb

Hi Deb! It actually got to 68 here on Saturday. Crazy weather! I will take it though.
Some girls were even running around in shorts. Love your vintage valentines.

Oh I love your Valentines. Such a pretty sunset on the snow photo. Sorry you lost so many followers, what a mess "they" made. I'm thankful to have Bloglovin' for followers.

Such sweet valentines. We have been mild all winter here, I guess you never know. Hope you don't get a huge snow.

love the valentines! I must have missed something. what did blogger change now? I did notice that I lost a lot of followers.. I thought it was because I was a bad inconsistent bloggy friend! lol!
I didnt notice any changes though.
have a great night Deb!

I am so happy for a little more daylight. But I am not happy about followers going away. I'm still not getting your comments to my email, so I'm not sure what that is about. Enjoy your new finds.

Lots of fun valentines! We've had a nice warm spell! Looks like we're going to get that snow tomorrow, though. I've been irritated about the followers loss, too...and if they didn't follow some other way, they won't see our posts.

There hasn't been a decent estate sale near me for years! At least you found a few things, and the Valentines are a fun find! It felt like spring here this weekend, but the temps are dropping again, so I guess it's back to winter.

Mimi said...

Hi there Deb. Yes the whole 'followers disappearing' is beyond the pale isn't it. Rude of Google for sure! What sweet Valentines trinkets you found. They're lovely. Mimi xxx

Hi Deb, You found some sweet treasures. Love the vintage Valentines. I agree google friend connect is making crazy changes. They think this helps our followings but how can it when those dropped can't find us??!! Enjoy your warmer days. We've been in the 70's and worked in the garden last weekend. I know we will have more cold days however. Not counting Feb. out yet!! Blessings for a great week! xo

Theresa said...

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful sunset:) I haven't been to any sales lately! I need to clear some clutter before bringing any new things in! Have a blessed day dear Deb, HUGS!

The Valentines are so cute! I wish I could find more vintage one's for sure. Stay warm.

I am with blogger and I am not aware of any changes. What did you mean? You have a lovely sunset!

Susie said...

Deb, I love the sunset photo so much. That is one of my all time favorite things, sunset pictures. I also love those valentines. They look like the old fashion kind.
Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie

Lovin' those cute valentines! I want it to be Springtime here! I'm cold! It was 23 this morning! That's cold for this desert gal! It was nice in the desert, though. It's fun to see what you have found. So many goodies!

Love those old fashioned Valentines! Beautiful sunset photo. It's been great weather here for the last few days, however, this evening turned very cold and very windy. Oh well, hopefully Spring is not too far off.

Thank goodness the days are getting longer! I just got a strange comment on my blog so I am finally visiting a few bloggers I know to try to see what's up. You just mentioned something about losing some followers due to changes, I lost quite a few suddenly too but I thought it was due to me posting so little, sure wish they would just leave things alone!!! Anyway, your Valentines look so pretty and make me want to get some pretty things out for it. It's not that far away! Sending you an early Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Oliva Ohlson said...

Hi Deb! The sunset is gorgeous!!! So glad your days are getting longer. It has been pretty nippy down here...brrr; but as of tomorrow are days are going to get warmer!
I really love those vintage Valentine cards.
Thank you for letting us know why we lost some followers...I still don't understand why of the changes.

Stay warm and keep up with your Zumba classes. I've been thinking about trying it out!
Hugs

My Blog is acting crazy I can't post right now not sure whats going on I hope to solve the problem soon!

Boopnut said...

Now I am wondering if people are having trouble posting on my blog or if there just has been a lack of interest? I never find any vintage anything! So cute. Would love to see your shop and/or go to estate sales!
