Just a reminder

Just a reminder that

drawing will be Saturday.
I will post the winner 
on Sunday.

Thanksgiving is almost here.
We'll be visiting friends
that day.  It will be nice
to share the holiday with

I am asking prayers for 
someone special. This would
mean the world to me if
you could include a
healing prayer.

I'll share with you next week
our Fall/Thanksgiving
home decor.

I spent some time looking
for blogs that I enjoyed
visiting.  There are so 
many that have closed 
their blogs.

Just a thought I 
would share...
Everyone is fighting a
battle you know nothing 
about.  Be kind.

Blog Give Away

I promised you a blog
give away.  If you have
followed my blog, you 
know that I usually
offer vintage items

gift tags!

But I really think you
will like the goodies

vintage but still is a 
wonderful display piece.
Just think of all the 
seasons you can decorate
this beauty.   I will be 
posting some suggestions
next week.

Second item is a magazine
Creating Vintage Charm.

It is full of wonderful
To enter my give away,

Thank you Deb!

Where did the summer go?

Where did the summer go?

Don and I have been busy getting 
things around the house ready 
for donations.

I went to Minnesota in June to visit
Deb ~ Garage Sale Gal.  When
I arrived, we went to meet 
Linda ~ Itsy Bits and Pieces
for lunch.  I really enjoyed 
meeting some wonderful 
blogging friends! 

I am hoping to start visiting your
blogs soon.  I have missed visiting
and seeing all of your art creations
and home decor inspirations.

I will be posting a blog
give away soon.

Until next time,

I hope my blog post finds you well!

I want to apologize for not posting
on my blog or visiting your blogs
the past few months.

In June I will be visiting Deb @ Garage
Sale Gal for a few days.  I will also
meet Linda @ Itsy Bits & Pieces. I am
excited about meeting these great
blogging friends!

Don and I went on a road trip to
New York for Andrew's college
graduation and a few days visit
in Virginia.  The drive to New
York was beautiful!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend with
family and friends!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Don and I got a lot done
this weekend around the
house.  Declutter...Organize!

We have been downsizing

I scanned some of my
vintage postcards and
a Valentine card for
you. Would love to
see your creations!

I have also been
working on changing
the color scheme in

kitchen areas.
I will share some
photos with you in

Busy Week!

It has been a busy week
here in the our home!
Too many doctor appointments
for me.  Third vet appointment
for Jake in 3 weeks.

Last Saturday, Don took me
to Franklin, TN to browse
and buy a few antiques.
Though I must say, some of
the shops cashier attendants
were rude to most of the
paying customers.  It really
didn't make for an enjoyable
time at those antique malls.

This is a tea cup set
that Don picked out for me.

These are some vintage
dresser mirrors I plan
on hanging in our
master bath.

These are some of the new
vintage cabinets cards I
purchased to add to my

The next two photos are of
two vintage quilts Don purchased
for my birthday.  They are in
amazing shape!

Deb @ Garage Sale Gal sent
me a birthday goodie box.
She really spoiled me!
This photo is of a
vintage Boston Terrier.

This photo shows Deb's
handmade BD card for me.
Her cards are always so
pretty.  Look at this
January Angel.  She is
She send me some other goodies,
but those photos were too
fuzzy to show in this post.

Thank you so much Deb for all
of my BD goodies and your friendship!

Well, here I am at 60 years old!

Hope your week was a great one!
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Have a wonderful weekend!
