Here are my two purchases I made at Sparks, Kansas. A big wooden spoon for $2.00 and a butter paddle for 50 cents. Even though I only came home with 2 things, I do like my little treasures.
Been doing some things outside today. Picked up a couple of Boston Ferns for my patio.
Planted some Morning Glory seeds. They were so pretty last year.
This little chair was in the basement of our church during the flood. It used to be pink. I cleaned it up and painted it black.
Hung a wreath and repainted my little sign. The letters on it were so faded you couldn’t read it anymore.
Got out my wind chimes although I really shouldn’t call them that. I bought them last year because I just loved the little pots and pans and I still do it’s just that I don’t love the clanging noise they make. Talk about a racket! I clearly wasn’t thinking on this one. They are certainly not the soothing sound of your regular chimes. So I hung them right up against the lattice so that they hopefully won’t clang around too much!
I saw a picture in a magazine and wanted to give it a try. I planted a Vinca vine in this basin and then put an old egg basket on top. It’s suppose to grow up and out the egg basket, although I should have bought 2 instead of just one, again, not thinking. I will have to pick another plant up so it will be fuller. We’ll see how it does, something different anyway.
I had some help this morning. Paley was giving me pointers on how to do things.
Last but not least, I wanted to share with you the pretty flower I got at church for Mother’s Day.
Until next time,

Yep, basically I got nothing. No exciting news, no great happenings, no recent projects, no flower planting going on…..just pretty much, nothing. Wait….hold on, I did move my Maggie quilt into the dining room from the living room. When it was in the living room you couldn’t see the bottom of it because it went behind the fireplace so I decided to move it for a change. Now you can see the whole quilt, but when I did that then I wanted to move the fireplace and when I did that I then had to move a cupboard. You know how it goes.
I did manage to go to Sparks, Kansas to a flea market. It was the first time I had ever been there. It was very cold, everyone had on coats trying to keep warm. I spent a whopping $2.50. I’ll show you my finds next time, got to keep you in suspense you know.
My sister in law kindly shared some mushrooms with us. Her husband found 10 1/2 pounds!
Can’t wait to taste them!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Last weekend my husband let me run in to a little antique store while he waited in the car so I zoomed through it real quick and found this little quilted piece. It reminded me of my grandma who said every room needed a pop of red. I was told it was made by a elderly retired preschool teacher’s mother. I always like it when you know a little history about an item.
I also found this little grater. Those were the two things that caught my eye that day. Of course I did see a few other things but the price tags told me no. :-(
We are finally starting to get some nicer weather. You just feel so much better when you can see and feel that sun! Have a great Monday!

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. Not much going on. Haven’t been on the computer as much lately either. Still waiting for the weather to improve. It even snowed a little today. Enough already!
My aunt moved awhile back and was doing some downsizing. Therefore, I got to bring home her and my mom’s high chair. I was tickled to get it.
Sure am ready and waitin for some sunshine! Maybe next week.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts on the Google Friend Connect dilemma. I am still unsure yet what I am going to do. Decisions decisions! Sounds like it is suppose to be really nice today. Get out there and enjoy your weekend and if it’s not nice in your area…..pick up a needle and thread! Either way have a great day!

As you have probably heard, Google Friend Connect will be closing in July 2013. I see where some of you have been switching over to another free followers gadget. Some have mentioned Linky Followers and some have mentioned bloglovin.com. I’m not sure how these two differ, although Linky followers appears to look similar to the Google Friend Connect. What direction if any, have you decided to go? Help or suggestions much appreciated! Thanks!!
