I have junk in my trunk! Yes these are goodies that are still in my trunk after like three days. I am waiting for the weekend when I can be home and find a place for them.. This galvanized piece is going to hang on the wall for my mail. I love old brushes and have started a collection.
I am spending a good portion of my time on instagram now. I really enjoy it and participated in a vintage planter swap. Pictured above is what I sent my gal Heather. She has a site https://www.etsy.com/shop/UpcycleChick! It is hard picking things for someone you don't really know that well. However she was super excited about her planters. I am receiving mine in the mail soon. I cant wait.
Last night it down poured rain and my sister Penny drove me to Salem about 1/2 hour away for this 9 cubby wall shelf. I have been seeing them on instagram alot and just had to have one. Waiting for the weekend to find a spot for it as well.
I was so excited to win this scarf and key fob hosting by http://littlecottageonthepond.blogspot.com/! I love it! I wore the ruffled scarf yesterday and received so many comments. I love giveaways and sure spend alot of time entering. I pray my overloaded desk top doesn't crash soon! Hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings Pam
Yesterday was a tease for Spring. Dry, calm, and the sunshined a little. I was reminded how good it is for the soul.
My friend Heidi stopped by with cut fresh flowers. She brought this lampshade for me. I love it! We had a great visit and all though we may not see each other as often as I would like we can sure gab up a storm. Thanks for being such a dear friend.
I have made some great friends in the blogging, facebook, instagram world. They may be far but always manage to take time to send a greeting to cheer me up, keep me inspired, and make me feel ever so loved. My friend Susan from http://mustlovejunk.blogspot.com/ sent me this charm for my birthday. I love it. She has a wonderful blog that I have come to really enjoy.. I look forward to each and every post. Thanks for thinking of me Susan. I have been spending time on instagram as of late. So my pictures are coming from there. Not the best quality SORRY! Hope you have a wonderful day. I am blessed by each and everyone of you. Blessings Pam
Lately I have come to really appreciate the small things. I have always said give me heat, a roof over my head, and my coffee and I am the happiest girl in the world. I dont require much. Life is short, God is good and faithful and I am so blessed each day.
Flowers are also something that I have come to love. I always said don't spend your money on something that is going to die, but look at these beauties. I do have a hard time keeping flowers for very long but these are staying nice in my bedroom. Thanks to my daughter Jordan for them.
With my birthday junkin money from my son I found this old letter box for my office and this lace wrap that I added to a dress form in my bedroom. Someday I hope to have a real old one with wire cage. But for now this is what I have.
My dress form named Diana after the woman I got her from is always a catch all. Yesterday I changed her outfit and put this Shabby Apple brown Vintage Dress on her that I hope to wear someday. I won it from a giveaway a coupld years ago. For now it is the small things that bring me such joy. My blog is something that also makes me happy. I appreciate it when you stop by and visit and comment. Hope you have a great rest of the week. Blessings Pam
This week has been a busy week to say the least. I was so very blessed by my birthday wishes, greetings, cards, calls, gifts. Being a twin has always brought extra special to our days. I was spoiled again. So amazing the kindness out there. Working with my twin as well as being one is like craziness. We have customers that share our day that remember and bring gifts. Amazing! My granddaughter was so excited and her and her daycare came in with brownies, flowers, bath and body, dutch bro coffee card. So sweet, my son gave me a thrifting jar with cash, and a kohls gift card, (so thoughtful)! Going antiquing today! My daughter had flowers delivered to work, dutch bro card from my brother, pedicure and goodies from my niece Kim, did I say spoiled.
My sister Penny gave me this rooster air freshener from Bath and Body. I love it! So cute.
Gift to self. While shopping for my sis I came across this linen necklace holder from Ross. At $3.99 who could pass it up.
My office is a catch all room. Tried doing a little industrial with alot of my dads belongings, but it now is just all thrown together and seems to be the room that things get dropped off in.
Old clipboard was my dads, along with a old notebook, and chalk line tool. A room in the making.
Spent sometime in the week with my great niece Pippa Jo! She received all A's and what better way to celebrate than dinner and a good girls chat. I love spending time with her.
My sister and her husband flew out to Las Vegas on Thur and our spending time in New Orleans. They are having a great time. My husband's birthday was Friday two days after mine. He jokes that since marrying twins he doesn't have birthdays anymore. His gets lost in the shuffle. This has been 28 birthdays celebrated. Its crazy how time flies. The sun shines here and I am off to enjoy it. Have a great day! Blessings Pam
Happy Birthday Penny! Without you I am nothing. It is the most amazing thing being twins. I am so blessed to be your sister, your friend. Hope you have a wonderful day. I will miss you while your away.. Safe travels and prayers coming your way for it! Love you!
Tomorrow is my birthday along with Penny's! It happens to be the 2nd one without my mom. It has really begin to bother me. I don't know why. I just feel so lonely without her. I miss her phone calls and voice, kisses and hugs. She was such a kind and giving person. I am doing my best to make her proud! She was around my age now when she gave birth to us. I thought when I was a child she was so old when she had us. Now that I am the same age I think differently. However I would not want to have a child at my age either. Anyways thanks for listening to me rant. I feel better. Hope you have a wonderful day! Blessings Pam
These last few days I have felt so Grateful! Not just because of my wins as of late, but because of so many things. I have such wonderful family and friends that love me and continue to show me each day in their own little ways. God continues to listen to me and bless me!
This girl above continues to teach me so much. Compassion and love are two that come to mind. She makes me smile and melts my heart. Being her Gammy really is the highlight of each day!
I entered a giveaway through http://www.thefunky-monkey.com/! I love their site. They are always sponsoring giveaways. I have very seldom entered because their is always thousands that do. On this day I did and after 2290 entries I was chosen. So there you go! Asked how I win I joke and say I have no life and my kids are raised, I spend hours a day on the computer. This week it paid off! Jewelry was sponsored by http://www.pickupsticks.net/!
