Shabby day with a friend!

 We had a fun day last Saturday. We drove about 45 mins to some local shabby sales. We scored some fun treasures, enjoyed each others company, caught up on the old neighborhood as I have just recently moved, ate a good lunch and hit the Goodwill on the way home.
 At the end of the day we displayed our treasures and took pictures. I really wanted to snag some of her treasures. Although I came home with a few of my own.
 I couldn't pass up this vintage rug, it caught my eye and I was in love!

 Kinda had a little shabby collection for my room.

 I collect vintage silverware and couldn't resist these napkin holders. I wish they would of had more.
This little black basket was a $2.99 score and I added a enamel tag to it. Simple but cute. Hope your enjoying spring. It is spring break here and it down poured all day yesterday. Blessings. Pam

Using Parents belongings!

 One thing I have been told is how everything I have has a story. Most of it has a story or came from my parents. This tool box I dug out of the attic when my parents were still alive. I brought it down rusty, crusty and chipping paint everywhere. I asked my mom if I could have it and she said what on the earth for. Well I saw the potential and am now using it for my jewelry.
 I have picked through the parents belongings a time or two and found these wheels. I love them.
 Even this little brown wood mantle staircase ball came from my parents shop. I love it.
 This large wood piece with the arrows came from dads shop and I haven't decided if I want to paint it or leave it?
 My sis Penny snagged this barrel of mamas and I loved it from the start. Now my sis doesn't keep anything to long and asked if I wanted to use it for awhile. Oh yes for sure.
 Some of the door knobs came from moms as well, and glass insulators also.
 This hood light came from the shop also. I love it.
 Lots of little collectables. Some from the parents some not.

I love this weather we are having . So far I have not killed my flower. So happy. Hope your having a wonderful day! Blessings Pam

Amazing weather we are having!

 We have had some wonderful like spring weather. Hi 50's and a few high 60's. I know we have months of rain but am taking it all in and enjoying it!
 Still unpacking and arranging things around here. I am loving the covered patio and can see some real entertaining going on this summer.

 Received some beautiful flowers for my birthday. Funny story I brought them home and couldn't find my vases I packed away. I have mason jars and jars of all sorts and sizes, had a duh moment when I realized I didn't need a vase..
 Had to share my beautiful cuff from my sis for my birthday. Faith, hope and strength really do carry me through each and everyday.

 Also some more pretties I received for my birthday. Chalkboard tray and soap dish. Loving how my downstairs bathroom is coming along. We have open skylights here and I have come to live on little sleep. Once the lights shine in I am awake. My new motto: early to rise early to bed.
 My mantle is the focus piece in the t.v. room. Its a work in progress. I just hung my galvanized light above it yesterday and its on a dimmer switch which lets off a soft glow.

 We have a t.v. room and a sitting room. This little sofa works good in the sitting room. Kinda where we can just sit and regroup before starting the day. I have several birds when I open the blinds in the morning and I like to sit and watch them here for awhile. I bought birdseed and a feeder yesterday and cant wait to put them out today.
I couldn't leave without sharing my Scooby with you. He is my sidekick. Constantly with me and I adore him with all my heart. He loves his new home too! Have a wonderful day. Blessings Pam
