Friday Finds

Boy has somebody been looking over my shoulder. Check out this couch I bought today at the church rummage sale. Rummage...I think not. It's fantastic. Even the fabric isn't half bad.
But I'm thinking maybe something more cream and chocolate!
We'll see....just couldn't pass it up.
A few little trinkets. Loved....loved...loved the old bible.

And what girl wouldn't want a miter saw for $15. Well, I've been wanting one for years and it just said pick me....pick me.
Works like a dream too!

Have a fun weekend everyone!

I Have Amazing Friends...

Wow have my friends been thinking of me lately.
I'm so blessed to have such good friends!
This book arrived a couple of weeks ago from Colleen. She knew I would love it.
And boy was she right. The recipes are amazing. The stories fabulous.
So far...fantastic. I've tried the cinnamon rolls and onion strings.
What a hit they've been!
Can't wait to try some more recipes.
Hubby thanks you too...he even read the book!

And this arrived today.

Natalie just knows me to well.

I guess being known

as the "dairymaid", as Stacy says, has its pluses.
Isn't it amazing.

The little people are so adorable.

Isn't it wonderful to have friends that just "GET YOU"

Thanks Girlies!!!

I love them!



A Look Inside

Thought I'd offer you a peak inside my art room.
The old hosier is my soldering, torching and grinding station.
All my glass and supplies are stored inside.
The fabric covered table is full of vintage linens and ribbons.
My sewing station. This one doesn't get used as much as it should.
I really miss sewing!!

Jewlery making work station.

The hummer of a wall unit. It's 7 feet long and almost 8 feet tall.
Let just say it holds a lot!
I should have taken pictures of the built in closet.
It's all organized now with tons of storage bins.
Just thought I'd share a little peak in to my little piece of heaven!

Diamond in the Rough

I'm so over the top excited. This is what the hubby brought me this morning.
Isn't it fabulous!
He was at a friend's farm this morning and it was heading to the burn pile but it was too heavy for him to move. Hubby said I'll move it for you and brought it home!
Can't wait to clean it up a little and admire!
Could this possibly be a new coffee table!!!

A Heavenly Day

What started as a Good Friday day of running errands for Easter weekend turned into an amazing stop at an estate sale brimming with treasures for me to take home.

Isn't that little beaded purse amazing. Made in Belgium (my mother-in-laws) home country. It's amazing.
Jewels and more jewels. Steph was with me and just had to have the Glenn Miller cassette tapes. Not that I don't love him either! And check out those little oil containers. I have a thing for those. Don't ask me why but I just love them.

These little treasures were in a bag of scraps the lady told me to take. There's 10 of them and they were all hand stitched. I can't imagine the hours this little lady took to stitch them!

Two lovely quilt tops...score $5 each. And look at that Grandma's cookie jar. It'll probably never be filled. It's so big it would probably take 12 dozen cookies to fill it! :)

And heaven. The lady couldn't believe anyone would want all this religious stuff. I told her I was Catholic but she was still surprised. Amazing chain on those rosaries!

Aren't these the cutest little Avon bottles. I'm thinking these crown bottles are awaiting a creation for Silver Bella. Don't you think so too??

Loving the pictures and the statue is the most beautiful color. And what could be more perfect than the 2 little lambs. Oh and Colleen...if you're reading this, a little piece of that heavenly blue velvet is on its way to you. I know some little dolly is just waiting for it!
One perfect Good Friday!
