Photos to Enjoy


A treat that I made last year...looks like a heart to me.



Valentine cutie






Tulips on my dining table.

I haven't been to Zumba for almost 2 weeks as they are relocating and fixing up the new studio. I miss it... A LOT! Hoping they open soon!

Just saying "HI"...

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!!

Pillows & Puppies


Baby sister made these pillows for me for Christmas and they match the quilt she gave me earlier. I had the saying  "always kiss me goodnight" painted over the bed. When I updated the bedroom, I painted over the saying. Now I have it back!






Do you see the peeking puppy?

GOOD NIGHT!

Valentine Fav's & Craft room update


All of these are from my collection...I look for dogs, blue birds and others that are too cute.



So "tweet" bluebird Valentines :)



More cute puppy Valentines.






My craft room is looking better! Not done, just looking better. Celestina Marie, at Southern Day Dream, shared with me how she raised her work table with Bed Risers! I used them under the table that is under the window. WOW a huge difference and more space under the table. Thank you, Celestina!! Friends helping friends :)

Slow today at the antique store..,.maybe the COLD weather is keeping shoppers home.

That's all for now.

"Cleaning-up in the Craft room"




I am embarrassed to show you my craft room...I have let it go into a huge MESS!!  It is not good to let things go like this....this is looking into the room seeing 2 walls. There is more that you don't see! OH MY!

I have been working in it this week. Cleaning, removing, sorting and making a donation or 2 to the thrift store! I craft standing up and hope to put new legs on my craft tables so that I will use them. I make things at the kitchen counter because the height works for me. That project will happen when the weather is warmer as hubby will be doing it for me. :)

Thanks for all the sweet comments about my Valentine mantle!

It has been BITTER cold and I had a flat tire on Monday...but didn't realize it until I stopped! Driving on a flat tire leads to a ruined tire. Hubby came and tired to put the spare tire on which would not come off.  So, off to the tire store to get 2 new tires. I am so thankful that I did not ruin the rim!

I am Loving Zumba! I'm learning the routines until she does a new one! I am in the back row :)  There are a couple of men that come to Zumba.

Keep warm!

Valentine Mantle



Here is my Valentine mantle.  I put it up last week. I went simple for this mantle. I'm trying to go thru my decorating items and keep only the ones that I really LOVE! (no pun intended!)

Not much going on right now...just wanted to pop in and say HI!

warmly,

Changes at the Booths


There was a dealer potluck at Antiques On Mainstreet today as well as working in your booth which we did. Moved treasures around, added new ones and took out a bookcase that was against the wall. A new look for the new year. Photos above and below are from Mainstreet.




I made this last night for our New Year's eve dinner. Twice baked potatoes and shrimp! YUM, YUM!
It was very good! I might make it twice a year. It's a treat!




The photo above and the 2 below are from our booth at Antiques Minnesota. We have a pretty big booth there!!! Time for Valentines!



Changing things up, adding new is always a good thing to do!!

We stayed home last night and didn't see the New Year in.  Yesterday the Christmas was packed up.

Next week is craft time with Tammy on Monday. Erica can't make it. Tuesday is work day at Mainstreet. I will also put up my Valentine mantle.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
warmly,
