No Bluebirds nesting & FInds

"My" bluebirds are NOT nesting in the house I have for them. I guess they found a "better" nesting box across the street at the golf course...oh well...

Just a few finds from last week.

As the hankie says "FRIDAY IS FOR FUN"  Happy weekend.

Going to some sales tomorrow and I hope there will be some to go to on Saturday!

Living Room Re-arranging & New TV stand

We totally use our Living room!!! The TV is in this room. I Hubby huge recliner is in this room, It is very hard to "decorate" and move furniture around into a cozy sitting area. I also have my laptop in this room. It sits on a metal TV tray.

This corner is were the TV is. I've been looking for a real TV stand and found one last week at an estate sale.

Much better. I am going to put different knobs on it.

I haven't decided what I want on the mantle. I just laid the faux peonies on top for now.

There is hubby's huge recliner.

Thank you so much for all the kind Birthday greetings and wishes.

Happy treasure hunting this weekend.

Tea Cup Swap

I was in Stephanie's Tea Cup Swap and received this beautiful Tea Cup from LINDA, Lady Linda Teacup blog. Such pretty colored pansy's in colors that I love.

oops...Linda also included a pretty kitchen towel, which makes me happy, pretty notebook and paper.

Of course there is tea and just enough chocolate! THANK YOU SO MUCH, Linda for the teacup and treasures. It is so much fun to make new blogging buddies.

I sent a teacup to Kitty which you can see here.

Thank you to Stephanie for making this swap happen. She is one of the sweetest gals in blogland.

"My" Bluebirds are BACK

For some reason,  Mr. Bluebird thought there was another male bluebird on the bow window. He kept flying into the window. I  put up some paper doilies on the outside of the window and that seems to have solved the problem. He thought he was seeing another bird, not himself, in the reflection from the window.  Hoping for bluebirds babies. 

The weather is Perfect! Back soon.

April Angels & Last Weeks Finds

I have a sweet little collection of April Angels. Most of them from blogging friends as birthday gifts. I am hoping the weather will warm up for my up coming birthday...anyone remember the day???  There is a prize for the first right date!

Bought this sweet side table for $10.00.  Hubby took off the sides as one was broken and I don't want to put much work into the side table before I sell it.

I love old frames with unusual shapes and these 2 are so sweet!

This one has lots of detail on it! The glass is curved! I hope someone will adopt this sweet family at the shop!

Grandgirl has volleyball tonight so I'll be heading out to watch her play.

May your weekend be Blessed!

Daffodil Win and Easter Table

I just LOVE this pretty, sunny, Daffodil pillow cover that I WON from the giveaway that Kathy's Cottage recently had. The flowers were made by her niece and the rest Kathy made! I admire gals who sew!!!  If you don't know Kathy, stop over and make a new friend!

I think it looks perfect on this chair! THANK YOU SO MUCH, KATHY! I will think of you everyday! It was a blessing to win this!

Oops, fuzzy picture of the Lemon poppy seeding bundt cake that I made for our dessert on Easter! YUM! I love lemon cake and bars! However, lemon pie, not so much.

Here is my simple Easter table setting. It is a small dining area, or I should say COZY dining area and 8 of us filled it up. I mixed & matched my pretty pink plates.

The sun is out! I LOVE SUNSHINE! It lifts one spirit.  Heading out to an estate sale today!

May your weekend be Blessed! I love April!!! No "fooling"!
