Enjoying some home time!

 I was so ready for this weekend. I have enjoyed some much needed time at home doing what I love and digging treasures out and rearranging. I dug out my grandmothers afghan. I love it in the fall.
 I have a thing for this old ladder it is broken and worn but I love it and always find a place for it.

 This is a fun inspiration board I have in my office. I love hanging little bits of treasures on it. Cards from blogging friends mostly. My beautiful mother makes me smile each time I see her.
I am sure thankful for the small pleasures. This weekend we have our granddaughter Londyn as we sent our daughter to the coast for her 24th birthday. Where does the time go? Hoping she has a wonderful time as we will enjoying the moments and time with Londyn. Blessings Pam

Trying to Balance!

 With my hours at work doubling the last few weeks I have come to realize I need to just find a happy balance. I miss the little things and have come to appreciate what once was. I know I will get it all done and will pull myself together. I just miss the fun I use to have playing house, doing my blog, and playing on my phone. Silly I know but the little things make me so happy. This little owl was in my trunk and missed Halloween all together. But I love him anyways and for now he will sit on my shelf and make me happy.
This purse was a gift from my sis and sat on the floor in a bag for over a week. Drove me crazy but everyday I came home too tired. Finally got some energy and got things done tonight. I feel good.

Did an overhaul on my bedroom and dusted and cleaned. This lamp finally came together after months of sitting around. I hung it in my bedroom. I love it. Like I said need to find the balance. Hope your having a good November. Time flies. I am blessed by my instagram friends, blogging friends, family. Well just plain blessed. Blessings Pam

Where has October gone?


 Wow I can't believe October is almost gone. We have had a great month. Pumpkin patch, Disney on Ice, weekend adventures, duck football parties. Last weekend was a downtown trick or treat. I was able to take my granddaughter and we had a lot of fun.


I won this Live Simply sign on instagram. I love it and am trying to live by it as of late. I have been selling some stuff in the house, clearing out a bit. Now we all know what that means right? Room for more!!! Just need to find the time to shop! Hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings Pam

Adding a little fall!

 I finally finished my wreath. I have been wanting to make one for sometime. I have been collecting things throughout the weeks. I love it and was kinda giddy about it. I am gifting it to my daughter. She doesn't always get my shabby decorating and very seldom takes things I offer her. She asked me to make her one and I am happy to give her this one.
I haven't had much time lately in the house. We have had such a nice fall so far with highs in the 80's. It is hard to be inside. I have started slowly and can hope I am done before fall is over. Tomorrow we are going to a cool pumpkin patch and I hope to get some fall pics done. Hope your enjoying your fall as much as I am. Blessings Pam

This melted my heart!

While visiting a local fall shabby sale my sis and I ran across this pigeon crate. We were in awe as it was my dads. He passed in 2013! I wonder who had it and the story behind it when they bought it from him. He raced pigeons for many many years. The memories I have as a child driving with him and releasing pigeons is one that I will never forget. His name was Harlo. This was his way of marking things or he would use green spray paint. We couldn't leave it there. It is now residing on my porch.
 Some other treasures from my parents place. Deer horns, you can never have to many these days. This old box had to come home with me. My mom had old records in it for many years.

 I realized the other day I have a thing for pillows. All shapes, sizes and even color. My bed takes about ten minutes just to get in at night lol.
You wont believe this but I had never been to World Market until a couple weeks ago. I have since been back twice now. I came home with these treasures. Oh my their prices are incredible. Hoping to get some fall decorating done this weekend. Time flies by. I cant believe it is October already. Have a wonderful day. The sun shines here! Blessings.  Pam

Fall is Near!

I have started a little decorating for fall. We have had some real nice weather and this weekend back up in the 90's!
 I received some nice gifts from my daughter from Hawaii. Also this nice owl mug from a friend. I was spoiled. I love the believe necklace also.

 Found this dear at Ross. I couldn't pass it up. Thinking of painting white but for now leaving it alone. Trying to figure out what to hang from the antlers.
Picked my granddaughter up for school yesterday. She was dancing and spinning in her front yard.  Doesn't get much better than this on a cool morning. Just wanted to give a quick hello and I appreciate your patience for my lack of blogging lately. Summer was good to me. Blessings Pam

Where did the time go?

 Monday Sept 8th my granddaughter Londyn started kindergarten. Where did the time go? She is 5 going on 12 I do believe. She is so smart, beautiful and just plain fun to be around. I am so blessed to be a part of her everyday life. I hope one day she looks back and tells stories of how cool her gammy was!
I get to pick her up most days from daycare and we always end the day with some sort of a treat, happy meal or sucker from the bank. It doesn't have to be big but it puts such a smile on her face and mine. I am truly blessed. Hope you have a wonderful evening. Londyn is spending the night on a school night so it is dinner and bath and downtime. Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
