A Few Finds!

My neighbor had a sale last Saturday I was so excited, not only did I get to help her stage it and advertise I got first pick. So fun for me and she wouldn't let me pay for any of it.
 I adored this white barrel. I have wanted one for awhile. I was so excited that it was white. I put an enamel pan in it for now. I am sure I will change it up before the week is up.
We went to the Portland Saturday market about an hour away. Oh my had so much fun. It was super hot that day. I spotted this hat and it was love at first site. Made out of all recyclable clothing. It has a flower that snaps and came with two other ones. I am giving this lady a plug as she had some really cute things. Her etsy is on vacation right now but you must check it out when she gets back to it.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HighDesertBoutique We wandered all the booths, had some good food and drinks, listened to music, wet our feet in the water park and walked all day. Hoping to get back there next month. Have a great night. Blessings Pam

Summertime Finds!

 Wow I cant believe how little time I have made for my blog. Summertime is flying by. I have only hit a couple of sales this summer. Hoping to go this weekend for a bit. Also hoping to do some much needed purging again. I have found a few things that I love.
 I love burlap as most people know and this pottery barn bag caught my eye at a antique store we stopped at on a day trip to Silverton. Now if I will just use all my bags.
 I really liked this $8.00 find pictured above. So many options for it.
My ever changing porch. I finally got Doug to hang the scale for me. I love where it is and with each season I can add something different. Have been enjoying lots of bbq's with family and swimming at my daughters. Hope your all having a great July! Blessings Pam

DYI Projects!

 Last weekend I was able to get some much needed projects done. This birdcage pictured above was green. I bought off a friend for $10.00. I painted it white and I must say I am happy  with how it turned out.
 I was able to get my spool stained and add an umbrella. Now on the look out for bar stools. I am having a hard time finding any. All the stores have already clearanced their summer stuff. Seems early.
The bottle pictured on the right was a vodka bottle with a really cool 4th of July sticker. I soaked it for days as I really liked the bottle. I kept thinking why am I wasting my time but I really wanted to keep it. I finally used WD-40 and it worked. By Sunday evening I sure felt accomplished and was ready for what the week sent me. Now I am ready for the next weekend. Have a wonderful 4th of July! Be safe! Blessings Pam

Home is where the Heart is!

 Today I embrace being home! It rains softly outside and I figure it will allow me to get some stuff done on the inside. Slow down, count my blessings and breathe.

 I got this cute little white shelf last weekend at a garage sale. I attached it to my toolbox now and hung some dishes and added some old bottles. It works for now.
My granddaughter loves to come over and see what I have moved around. She says" You know that gammy she is always moving things". It is so cute. Hope your all enjoying your day. Blessings Pam

Enjoying the Little Things in Life!

 Reflecting on the little things in life that mean the most as of late. I look at my grown children and my granddaughter and I am beyond grateful for them, my home, the car I drive, the family I have!
 Our little town in Oregon is the first in the state to have a Hobby Lobby. That is huge for us. I am so excited for this store. I went yesterday and pictured above I found a pillow cover, kitchen sign, and two yard stakes for a whole $11.00! This is going to be my pit stop I can tell.
 I found a place for all my treasures. Pillow cover was like $5.99 with 40% off. Crazy right?
 People ask how I decorate, shabby, primitive, antique, modern? Well I don't know how to answer that, I just throw what I like all together and it works for me. I found these primitive cutting boards on a local virtual site for $4.00 each. From what I am hearing I got a steal!
 I did a little transformation on this cabinet the other night. Pictured right is the new look. I took it off the wall as the wall was to congested. I like how it turned out.
This wreath has been a work in progress. I add from time to time. I stopped at my parents homestead the other day,( as most know they both passed in 2013) and grabbed some of my mothers dove feathers, I thought it would be a nice touch. I added a chalk label and paper scroll. I like how it turned out. I think I will call it done until the next time lol. Hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings Pam

Welcome 1st Day of Summer!

My granddaughter Londyn gets so excited about holidays or any events really. She has been counting down the days to the 1st day of summer. Last evening we caught grasshoppers all evening long. What a fun night. Have a wonderful day! Blessings Pam
