 Collecting quite a few mason jars, and insulators. First time I have seen purple ones. So pretty.
Old plates, silverware, bottles and insulators seem to be my thing right now! Well along with anything galvanized.. Oh I could have worse habits right? Hope your enjoying this beautiful weather. Tomorrow is Wed already! Blessings Pam

Love Me Some More Treasures!

 I sure love my porch but boy do I have alot of stuff! The column to the left I posted awhile back. It was in my dads shop! Galvanized container was on the truck to go to metals. I grabbed it up. Been getting hen and chicks from my moms place and my sisters. I am loving  lots of greenery this year!

 I love galvanized things... I would love a huge laundry room for these tubs that were dug out of the property. Need to clean them up.
 My brother keeps looking at me as he would just haul off. Although he told me yesterday that he has twenty years on me and if he was younger he would be bringing it home too! He just doesn't want to deal with it!
 These cherub handles were in my moms antique room they are heavy and way cool. Don't you think?
 It is great that their is 6 of us kids and we all have different taste. With the exception of my sister Teresa. Her and I always seem to like the same things

 I love this crystal bowl. It was in my moms room also. Most of these things have been there for many years. I have no idea how old they are. If any of you know about them please let me know. This dish above it either turning color or is a little lavender color to it.
 Okay maybe I should rethink some of the things I am bringing home but the pink flamingo is way cool. It has a light in the back. I took it off and ran this through the dishwasher. Who knows how long I will keep it. It was in the garage sale pile.
 Added another suitcase to the pile.
 I even snagged some musty old pillows. But I love the ticking on them.

 Better shot of the adding machine I got also. I love the front of it.
 More pretty dishes.
This picture struck a nerve with me! Don't know anything about it. Just that it was mom's. That is was old and no one showed interest in it.  The sun has shined all weekend. I love it. However with the sun comes the notion that I must accomplish three weeks work in two days. I am exhausted and headed for a bath and movie. Have had little time to post right now but we are hoping to be done with parents property in June so that we can have some summer. Tomorrow I will devote my entire attention after work to my granddaughter Londyn who deserves it... Blessings Pam

Can A Woman Ever Have To Much Stuff?

I think not! This was in my  rooms antique room. Its heavy and old. I love the stand that its on... Not sure where its going but its staying I know that... My husband keeps shaking his head at me. He doesnt say a whole lot as I think he realizes bringing things home from my parents gives me comfort right now. Makes me feel like I still have a piece of them. I mean I know I always will but just makes me feel better. Busy week already, starting another one. Enjoy the sunshine. Blessings Pam

A Giveaway Win!

Several weeks ago I entered a giveaway over at http://www.freckledlaundry.com/! I was on vacation when I was chosen.. Jami came to my blog saw I was on vacation and read the blog I posted about my dads passing. Noticed that mom had passed 7weeks earlier and said there was no way she would draw another winner. That comment made me cry. There are some wonderful people out there. Most giveaways give you 24 to 48 hours to respond or they move on. Not only was she awesome but the host of the giveaway was as well. Kelly from http://www.etsy.com/shop/letteredandlined also waited for my return. Thanks to you both. Kelly is about an hour away. What a small world. Her site has some awesome prints and I was able to pick 2 11x14 prints of my choice. Here is what I chose.
I have a small laundry room but try to keep it fun as I sure spend alot of time in there. Now I cant wait to look for some shabby frames for them.  If you have a moment to check these ladies out you will enjoy each of them. Hope your having a great weekend. Blessings Pam

 Londyn liked it so well she went again with my nephew Jonah!
It was alot of fun. Very hot. At the end we bought Londyn her very own wood camel.. Hope your having a great Wed! Blessings Pam
