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
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
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
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
Do you ever feel that sometimes your blogging friends/instagram friends are your family? I do! I love the love that I get from them. These headbands came from Lisa from SWEETBUGOBOO! She has so much talent and I adore them.
Some of you know Jill from http://www.sewafineseam.com/ She amazes me with her talent as well. I ordered this pouffe from her and I adore it. She sent me this banner as we have sent things back and from to one another. Another friendship I have made along the way.
This summer has been slow at work which allows me lots of time to play house at home. I have really tried to spend less and shop my home. I love my things and enjoy moving things around daily.
I went to a couple of garage sales last weekend and came home with some treasures.
I also love to do DYI projects. I painted this stool that I salvaged from my dads shop. While its not perfect I love how it turned out. I also added this pillow to this box for my little yorkie Scobby to sleep in.
I hope you are enjoying your final days of summer. I am for sure. I will get to spend the next 11 days helping with my granddaughter Londyn while her mommy is away to Hawaii. I am going to focus as much time as I can making it fun for her. Have a wonderful evening. Blessings Pam
I love collections and probably have way more than I need. These old jars were stored in my moms antique room for many years. Some have lids some didn't. I added these cute chalk labels to them. I needed a change on my kitchen counters and like how it turned out.
I love the iron bottle opener from my sister Penny. She also gave me the white chippy wood piece and the mirror on the back display. She gets rid of I salvage it.
Hit some garage sales and came home with oil can and this little vintage mini mixer.
Also scored this mini postal scale,burlap bag and another old bag I have displayed on my hutch. All for under $5.00 SCORE!
It was a great day with lots of treasures. I am a sucker for pillows and have way to many. Another collection I suppose. Love glass knobs and the little shaving brush oh my!
We have the first Hobby Lobby in the state and I am smitten. I stenciled the crowns on burlap and gave as gifts. They have all their Christmas ornaments out and of course I had to have some. However I am not using as Christmas.
It is well with my soul is the first thing I see each day when I enter my bedroom. It is such a great reminder. Hope you enjoy your Sunday. Blessings Pam
