Thrift Finds and Some Changes


Happened upon a new thrift store the other day and found these beautiful white pieces for 25 cents each.  Then….


I found this sweet picket fence piece in an antique shop. It caught my eye just as soon as I stepped in the door,  $15.  Then…

moved the old cupboard into the kitchen for a change, then…

Came across this sign one day and loved what it said.  I have since seen it pictured in a magazine, don’t know which one,  I was just thumbing through  magazines at the check out line a while back and thought, hey there’s my sign!



Have a great day!

Pinterest Inspired


Took a basket…


added some greenery to it…


and stuck in some button flowers.


Of course then I was sticking button flowers everywhere!

In fact, I might have went a little overboard!

Fun Project


This year’s library summer reading program is “Fizz, Boom, Read!”

We will be doing different science experiments.  The first day we made “GAK”, which was made with Elmer’s Glue, water and Borax.   I later came across this recipe where you use equal parts of Elmer’s Glue (which I bought the glitter glue) and Sta-Flo liquid starch.  It was fun and super easy to make. I know I’m not a little kid anymore but it’s fun to sit around and squish it!  Think of it as a stress reliever!  Elmer’s glitter glue comes in different colors, so you have your pick.  I like to just stare at the glitter glue in the bottle, so pretty,  I know, I’m weird that way!


Here’s a picture of the kids with the “GAK” they made…


and here’s a picture of the yummy dessert the librarian made for us!


Now go forth and have some squishy fun!!

New Flower Bed


Rusty built a new flower bed for me. I didn’t know what kind of flowers or how I was going to fix it up.   I decided to do purple and yellow, purple petunias and yellow marigolds.  I also transplanted some daylilies.  I started looking around at some things I already had and came up with this.  I will have to take some more pictures when the flowers  get to blooming more.


You can click on the next two images to enlarge.

Have a great day!

Hello! It’s Me Again~

I see that it was Easter that I last posted anything.  Shame on me!  I guess you could say I have just been blog lazy.  I shall try and get out of my rut and do a better job of posting.  Been doing some things outside.

Found this cute little washboard for $5.  Couldn’t resist!
Got these neat solar lights at Home Depot.  I just love them!
Looks like a jar of fire flies! 
Until next time, which hopefully won’t be as long!
