Fun Friday Finds

 Aww...nothing like a "digger's sale" on a Friday morning! Mainly new-ish items, but fun to dig...




The basement had many room filled with totes/boxes to dig in!!! Maybe we'll go tomorrow when it's 1/2 off. Price were good today on most things


I don't know why I picked up the soaps.  You just never know what "calls" to you when you are "shopping".

Tomorrow another sale that looks like "pretty" things to buy.

I hope you have a FUN  weekend!

Little Decorating Changes


 I've changed up the corner's in the living room...bought this awesome pink window/door on Thursday while shopping with Linda and Robin, fellow bloggers. The window/door will probably have a new location at some point. For now, it's here! It has the old wavy glass!



 I don't have a "foyer" in my home.  Bought this little table a couple weeks ago. Traded it out for a blue table that didn't have a drawer. These are real bird nests that I have found on the ground and put in the freezer for a year to be sure that any mites that were on them have been killed. I sure don't need any mites in the house or on the dogs or myself! The old bottles on the bottom shelf are from my son. He sometimes finds cool old stuff when he is remolding homes! Can't remember here I found the heart rock.


My good old suite case corner with my old church sign makes my smile! The old clocks are set at the time my kids were born. Copied that idea a few years ago!

We didn't go to any estate sales this morning. Nothing "looked" that good! LOL!!  Yesterday I bought paint for the living room, hallway and bedroom. Not sure when I'll start painting. I had to buy it as it was on sale!

I'm thinking Spring...just wish the weather was! This is the last week of February...

HAPPY WEEKEND!

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!

~ Valentine's Day Wishes ~







                              HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY


May your day be SWEET and filled with LOVE. 

This is a Bible verse that I'm trying to live by:

Matthew 22: 37        "You shall love the Lord your God with All Your Heart, and with all Your Soul and with All Your Mind".

There is no greater Love than from the Heavenly Father...

Crafting & Valentine Mail

 A couple of weeks ago, Erica & Tammy came over and we crafted. Erica had us try something new, and it was so much fun. The "new" crafting was on canvas and altering/adding things. Tammy made the "Beloved" one, Erica made the "There's always more" and I made the "House", which I have re-altered! LOL Didn't like the cupcake on the main house...anyway..it was a good time. Cards, a tag, a valentine box, garland, were also made!


  A package of Valentine love was sent from Debbie to me this week. We send each other little somethings, every now and then!  She sent an " ME" book, vintage valentines, bits and bobs and mug from Mn...she lives in CA.. THANK YOU, Debbie! Who doesn't love gifts from friends!




Last week or so the grocery store had the best tasting strawberries!! YUM!

Plans for next week, duty day at Mainstreet, baby sister's 55th birthday, Bible study, and of course, Valentine's Day. We have a gift card for the "Cheesecake Factory" that we will use on Friday the 13th!! Too crowded on the 14th, plus that is our "treasure shopping day"! LOL!!

Thank you for your blogging friendships!!! I hope you all have a great week filled with many blessings!
warmly,

Valentine Swap & Sister Update


 


 Viv had a Valentine Swap and my partner was Pam from Virginia Retro. We enjoy collecting linens and have dogs...and have swap before. I just love getting a package filled with treasures. We were to make a Valentine card and "ornie" and the photo above is what Pam made for me. Very sweet and she also sent vintage Valentines.

 She also sent all the above!!! Many bits and bobs to use for crafts, lace, seam binding, buttons, altered clothes pin...and more. Also a little candy treat, which I haven't even opened! THANK YOU, Pam! It was great to swap with you!! She also sent the puppies a treat, which They Have eaten!!



This is my baby sister who finished her chemo and radiation this week! Now, her body gets to rest before her surgery in March! She and her hubby are taking a vacation in Feb. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your PRAYERS!!  I truly believe that her side affects where limited by prayer!

Okay, so I have been a "good girl" with my not eating treats, candy, chocolate, sweets, donuts, desserts, etc...for the entire month of January and 4 lbs have left my body!! LOL!!! Slow and steady! I hope it will be another 4 lbs in Feb! (oops, I did have a little of the pudding that Tammy made when she was over to craft and I will post about that next)

Tomorrow is February... we are going to a friends home to watch a little of the game. I am not a football fan, just love the commercials. Won't stay for the entire game, as I love to watch Downton Abbey!!! We all have our priorities! LOL!!!

deb

First Finds of the New Year


 We went to an estate sale yesterday and they had MANY tea cups & saucers...however...not at the price I wanted to pay...so we went today when they were 1/2 off and I picked up a Few!!! The suitcase is from a sale that we went to today...


A few more goodies from today...


I've been finding pyrex bowls lately... not bad finds for the first of the year!

It was 40+ today, so we took the puppies for a little walk. When we got home, bath time for them. They walked in a few puddles :)  It may get into the 40's on Wednesday. So wonderful for the middle of winter!

Off to price the treasures for the booth. I must stay on top of pricing them right away..otherwise they end up in a box, packed away... :)
