Camera phones are not the best quality but again all I have right now.. I keep saying must get the camera fixed but never remember to get it in. I am going to hang it on the door so I remember to take it to the shop.. We had a great turn out for Noah's birthday with a get together afterwards at the house... Enjoying the peaceful weekend..

On the mend!

If you ask Londyn she has ammonia! So cute. She is getting better. She had pnemonia mostly in her right lung. She has been on antibiotics and an inhaler now for several days. She is back at daycare and getting back to herself. Thanks for the prayers and emails asking about her. She stayed with Gammy and we enjoyed some rest and relaxation.. It is a shame to have to be sick to get it... Blessings Pam

On the look out for these:

You know when I get it in my mind I want something I look look and look until I find it. I must say this is a challenge! I have posted pics on Craigslist several times.. Nothing! Been to a few sales and nothing. I want them for my kitchen! Any ideas on where to find anything close? I have looked at Coastal and Wilco Farms, but nothing like I want plus it would be great to be rusty and crusty! Enjoy your Saturday! Blessings Pam

Cabinet Love!

 Have I told you how much I need to get a camera or mine fixed. Camera phones just dont cut it. Anyways this cabinet was at the Not to Shabby! I walked in just to check my booth and fell in Love! One of the owners Mindy had it in hers. It has two glass doors which I love on the front.. I have my ironstone dishes, flower frogs, some linens and my blue mason jars in it. It is on wheels which makes it so nice.
 My beautiful Red roses from my daughter and granddaughter for Mother's Day! They smelled my living room up for a couple of days.
 I found some more old frames at the estate sale last week. It was a blast... Can't wait to go again.
This little thing I think I am going to see if this vendor across from me who is an electrician can turn into a light for me.. It is rusty, musty and old. Can you say Love! Hope your enjoying your day today! I am! Blessings to you! Pam

Happy Mothers Day!!!!

God's Masterpiece is Mother

God took the fragrance of a flower...
The majesty of a tree...
The gentleness of morning dew...
The calm of a quiet sea...
The beauty of the twilight hour...
The soul of a starry night...
The laughter of a rippling brook...
The grace of a bird in flight...
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply - Mother.

To my mama,
       I love you so very much... You are so dear to me! I am so very blessed by you each and every day. I cant express how much you mean to me. How much you have taught me... Simple things.. Your kindness, love and compassion has been something I admire so much. I pray for you daily and ask for God to give you strength, comfort and peace each and every moment of the day. I have enjoyed our nights together lately. I look forward to spending time with you tomorrow after work. Happy Mothers Day to my mama!!! I love you!!! Blessings Pam

Hoping for Success!

We prepared our booth for the Friday night wine walk. They were anitcipating at the least 1500 people through the booth. I can't wait to see how it turned out..
 Hard to see with the lamp on. My brother had a rusty twin size bed spring in his back yard. I asked what he was going to do with it? He said nothing so I took it to the booth where I displayed my little goodie bags filled with vintage stuff, buttons, postcards, etc! Looks cute dont ya think?

 Love this bike I took down also. I had two and kept one for my porch.. It is mossy and rusty... Love

Thanks Laura and Penny! So glad we made this happen without the two of you helping and filling the booth also I would of been lost.. I am a little over whelmed thinking of all the projects I have to do in the next few days. Lots of changes going on right now... But I will do the best I can to deal with them all. Blessings this early morning.. Pam
P.S. Remember several weeks ago I came across a kitchen aid mixer at Goodwill for 12.99 well Penny got one for 10.00 tonight at a preview of an awesome garage sale. Thanks Heidi.. It was the highlight of our day.. We are blessed to have Heidi and Beverly as dear friends..

Blessed by another!

Several days ago I entered a giveaway for this 6x6 canvas over at!
I was asked where my favorite place was and that paticular day this is what I said:

What a great giveaway! I have been blessed in many travels.. Hard to think of a favorite.. Right now things are so busy I am ashamed to say my favorite place at the moment is my bed..
Her blog is beautiful and if you get a chance to check it out head over to the link above. Thanks Sherri! Enjoy your day. Blessings Pam

I am a winner!

I was emailed today that I was second prize winner on Sharons site
I won a seasonal digital selection from her shop.. So excited. My name was shown as this:
So very cute! Thanks so very  much. Her site is very cute. Check out link above.. Have a good night.
So far I have spilled the ranch dressing all over the kitchen floor and my granddaughter threw up all over the carseat and the car.. And it was a huge chocolate milk. Very busy night.. Needless to say it was nice to open my email this evening. Blessings Pam

Projects for the booth!

 This little farm stool was plain wood and I painted it white along with this wood box and added chalk board to it. Little tin box in side also painted and added chalk board and a #1!
 Painted this sign and need to add hooks to the back and will take it down as well.
 Pair of pillow cases.. Love them. Along with this ladder that was wood. Painted and distressed white. They seem to be common but I love them anyways..
This is why I may not make any money at this as I brought this crate home for $5.00 from the vendor across from me.. I love them! Hope you have a great May day! Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
