Can you guess?

Can you guess?

Isn't it beautiful! My big splurge-Anthropology! It was on sale-but still a splurge.

We had both bathrooms done this year. Maybe the kitchen soon.

I wish I had taken before pictures.

I got this guy at a garage sale for $3.00. It's in French. I love the colors.

I like milk glass. The tray and the jar are both milk glass.

Went to see Daddy this week in Saluda NC. Took a few pictures of his little farm.
The house is new-the old one burned to the ground 18mths ago.

Have a fun filled Saturday.

Thrifty Thursday

When I saw this on the cart to be brought out I felt like everyone was looking at it. I had to wait about 30 min. for them to bring the thing out. Then I walked really fast towards it and I was sure there where a bunch of women behind me trying to get it before me. And then I took my treasure home. Yes-it's a longaberger. The large picnic. $1.91! With the liner and protector.
Happy Thursday!

A few treasures

Hello to all who visit me!

I'm sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I'm having trouble downloading pictures and I like to have pictures with my posts. I thought I would show you some things I collect. I love old jars and old sewing things.

I found both these pillows at the thrift store for $1.91 each! The one on the right is linen with pretty embroidery, it's a long pillow from potterbarn. The other has a lot of texture and it's lined with silk. They have feather inserts that they came with!

This is my favorite lamp shade. I found this at a garage sale a long time ago for $2.00.

These are things I have picked up a estate sales, garage sales and the thrift store.

I love this print. I found this at the thrift store for $3.93.

I hope you enjoy. I'm learning how to download. My daughter is working very hard with me.

Smiles to you and thanks for stopping by

Does she look like a cowgirl? Major the horse!

I hope Major doesn't go anywhere.

They don't like to touch them.

She's a little to close.

That's close enough.

Kiss me

Flathead Lake in Montana

A..... K.... E.... on the dock of our friends from Florida. An amazing view!

Isn't this nice!

Yes! That is a slide from their house that shoots you way out into the lake. What fun would that be.

A..... and uncle D.... on Flathead lake in Montana.
My husband is on his way home from Montana as we speak. It's been three weeks. It seems like forever.
Have a fun weekend!

Hiking in Glacier and Riding dirt bikes.

Hiking in Glacier. This is what I love about hiking. Us city people get to see these beautiful creatures. I know he is not that wild, but to us this is amazing.
Anyway-my husband is still in Montana. He better be back this weekend, I'm over it. When I called him yesterday I asked what are you doing. He said: I'm in the hospital getting an IV with antibiotics! He hurt his foot last week dirt bike riding-I told him to have it checked out- he did not. It's broken in about 15 places! He is 53yrs old. He is not going to die riding-he is just going to be crippled and I will have to take care of him when he is really old.
Anyway again-I'm off to a estate sale.
Have a fun day.

Pictures by E...

E..... wanted me to post some pictures she took outside. She is an editor on her high school yearbook. I'm so proud of her.

Where I sit around my home.

Front porch area.

Front yard. I have had this swing for about 20yrs. The seat did break last week. My mom bought this for me and she has been gone for 15yrs now-so it's hard to get rid of it.

This is my back porch. I got the sofa at the thrift store for $10.00. The cushions are covered with a Ralph Lauren twin sheet-from the thrift for $1.91. I make the pillow covers from scraps. The table and chair from a garage sale years ago. I forgot what I paid. But I'm sure it was cheap.

Sorry about the hose. Oh yah-there's Miley.

I have a thing for Adirondack chairs. And swings.
Come on over and sit awhile. We can have a beverage and chat. I would just love to have you.
Smiles to you.

Julie and Julia

So I went with my sister today and saw Julie and Julia. It was wonderful! It really does explain what blogging is all about.
