Blackberry Junction!

 This last weekend the local Blackberry held their spring show. It was in a new location and everyone wondered how it would be. I think and have heard it was a great success. Normally it goes a week long, this time it was a two day show. I took the day off just to go as I was so excited this time around. They had a vintage trailer all done up and you could walk through it. It made me really want one now. Lets just add that to the list of wants. lol
 I came home with a few treasures. Two crowns one being a wire one and another little gold one, a clipboard,( I could so make them but just easier to buy one.), Rachel Ashwell twin duvet cover and sham, a celebrate card, milk glass vase, and a rose planter, and a little scale.
 We have had some really nice weather although the rain is coming. I decorated my table out front. Not much effort but I know we still have rain and maybe rain so don't want to go all out.
Found this vintage baby scale a couple weeks ago. It goes with the other dozen or so I have. I love scales of all shapes and sizes. So I thinned out and now adding, that is the way it goes right? I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. Blessings Pam

My Saving Grace!

My granddaughter Londyn, I always heard skip the children and have the grandchildren first. Well I would never do that lol, without them I would have none. However this girl is the light of my life. I have been going through some health issues, nothing to serious but enough to keep me bothered and a little down. I realized the other night as long as she is healthy happy and in no pain I can handle anything that comes my way. She had a toothache the other night. Actually I think she is cutting a back molar. Any who to see her in pain broke my heart. Mushy stuff I know but it reminded me if I could only take her pain and mine I would in a heart beat. This fab stool was in the truck at my parents to go to the scrap yard. I asked my brothers if I could have and I came home with it. I love it just the way it is. Thought down the road I would paint white and add a number. Loving yellow as of late. Have a wonderful week. Yesterday we had 70 degree weather. I love it! Blessings Pam
P.s. I am loving this blog: http://www.thoughtsfromalice.com/

Spring Cleaning and Organizing Like Crazy!

 The last couple weeks I have been doing some spring cleaning. Trying to rid myself of clutter and things that are just laying around. It feels so good. I have a spare room/ Londyn's room(granddaughters) that always seems to collect stuff. I tried to make it girly but still nice if someone came to sleep over. I covered her bookshelf of crayons, books etc. I kinda like it hidden. Although Londyn told me she didn't like it.
 My laundry room is small but I try to make it fun, since I have to be in there so much. lol.
 I collect scales and found this vintage baby scale at Goodwill one day for $4.99 I was in such a hurry I didn't take the gross sticker off the front. Next project. I researched it on pinterest and found out it is only valued at $15.00. That's okay. I love it.
I know I said I was getting rid of right? Who could pass this up for $6.00! I love this sun glass case. I collect flower frogs, and that little creamer I love it. The sun shines today and I am so very blessed for my day! Hope you have a wonderful day as well. Blessings Pam

Welcome April!

 Hoping for some sunshine soon. We had a little tease a couple weeks ago. I am ready for spring! I welcome April.

 I visited my brothers the other day and we wandered my parents property. Since their passing last year we call the place the homestead. They showed me changes they made to the place and things they set aside for me. These scoops made me happy. I love them. Knowing my dad used them brought me a smile for sure. Since the official engagement of my daughter last Friday, I have really wished they were here to share in the news.
 I met a really neat lady last week via Craigslist. She had such good prices and I came home with all pictured above for under $20.00 I love the white blanket, and couldn't resist the pillow.
 Adding a little blue in my home. The cake holder was also a find from her. I love old bottles. Most of them came from my mom!
Who am I? I am shabby, I have my faith, and I am grateful. All pictured above.  Hope you have a wonderful week. Blessings Pam

It's Official!

Friday March 28th our daughter Jordan got engaged to Anthony! We went to dinner and of course I knew what was going on (because moms know everything)! However with that being said you kinda wait your whole life for that moment and guess where I was? I had taken Londyn to the bathroom, when Anthony asked my husband for Jordan's hand in marriage. I came back and could tell I missed it! I just adore that ring! No date has been planned yet. You know now days things are so different. They have been together for sometime now. Have Londyn and Anthony has a son from a previous relationship. His name is Tison and he is 6. Londyn just turned 5 in January! She loves her brother so much. She looks out for him and when we go to the store or something always wants to remember her brother. I was giddy all evening and wanted to share the news right away. Have a great day! Blessings Pam

Do I inspire or tire!

 I wonder sometimes if I inspire or maybe you get tired of my blog. I was thinking why I started this thing. In the beginning it was for my scrap booking, which I no longer do. Than it was to journal the growth of my family, I need to do that more. I love to look back on my photo's of my granddaughter Londyn and her growth. My children how far they have come etc. The wrinkles I have now that I didn't 5 years ago. lol. My blog is so much fun for me. I really enjoy my decorating and what I have learned from all my blogging friends. Its the small things that bring me such joy.
 I have really come to enjoy instagram. I love to follow certain people and learn about their family and pets. This basket above is in my office. I am doing a little industrial theme in there. Does anyone have an idea what this red tool is? I have no idea just know that it is sharp.
 I have a pretty big bathroom with two sinks. I really enjoy the space I have in there. I have an old chippy yellow cabinet that displays lots of dishes, antique medicine kit, old bowl and pitcher that was my moms.
 I had to share this picture above of my sis Penny's bedroom. I love how shabby it is. Look at her overflow on the floor. The one thing with her is she gets rid of things pretty quickly. We enjoy passing back and forth.
Speaking of a big bathroom this was Londyn this morning while I was getting ready for work. She spent the night, she likes to sit in there and chat while I am getting ready. She really inspires me! Her beauty and grace and love for everyone is a true gift at such a young age. She called her mommy last night to say goodnight, her mommy said "my tummy hurts will you pray for mommy". No doubt she did. Well our spring break has had mostly rain this week. We surely need it. I need the sun though too! Have a wonderful evening. Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
