Weekend Finds and Real Life......

Look at what I found this weekend all within about 5 miles of my house.

Actually I found the 4 little painted seasons at the Thrift Store.

This cute little scale.

I love these!  I collect paint by numbers, I have mostly horses and season landscapes.
I was thrilled to find this moose and elk!!
In the most beautiful blues and browns.

For me these are hard to find.  Old wicker chairs that are well made.  I can take these outside and wash them with the hose.
I will be changing the cushion.
Now I have 3.

See how well made it is?
This is old and sturdy.

I like wire plant stand.
This is 2 tier and $4.00!!

An old brief case.
Perfect worn leather in great condition.

I love the lock!

Now for real life.
I like this corner of the living room.
I need to take some photography lessons.

My step father bought this for me. He's not with us anymore so this is really special to me.  He was a wonderful man and I miss him so much.
Love you Bacca!!

I have been collecting old globes.  They are not easy to fine around here.

And here it is, real life at home.

Laundry to be folded and put away.
If you have any suggestions on decorating feel free!

Shoes all over.  I have a shoe basket by the door but they can't put them in it.

They are everywhere.

This is my corner where I keep my magazines and books.  I have an obsession with magazines...
Oh well.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
We have had beautiful fall weather this weekend.  I was outside all day long.
I love days like this.
Enjoy your week!
And I want to say how much I appreciate you being here. Your comments make my day brighter!

Hey Sue....great finds this weekend! Thanks for sharing your 'reality'! There's usually 4 or 5 pair of shoes in my living room on any given day. Beats looking for 'em I say!

There's always tomorrow to finish the housework!

Have a great week,

Sue! You found some great things this weekend. CG and I are trying to be like you, but we seem to be floundering and have limited success. Just kidding. No, really, we have limited success. I love to look at what you find and how you use the items. I always learn from you - and Chic! My idols.... Ann

You definitely had some great finds! I love the house and promise you mine often looks the same. I'm really good at hiding all the clutter in the laundry room, my master closet and in the linen closets. Just don't open any doors!
