She Believed She Could So She Did!

 Well I have had a week of it! While not going into a whole long story I had some dental work done, something they felt I needed done but I wasn't bothered at the time. It has been very exhausting and taking a toll on me and my family. I feel like I am the most important piece to the puzzle and when its lost the whole family becomes lost. So two trips to the dentist, two prescriptions for pain pills, two for antibiotics, a whole bunch of crying and whining I am on the mend. I never missed work but for one day but would come home medicate and lay down. I wanted to be me, energized, creative, busy and just plain me, but everyday I just made it through. Today I pushed through and am managing. Praying for comfort and peace and praising God for healing my body.
 A beautiful gift at my door last night from my twin sis Penny who picks up the slack at work when I am down, feels my pain and loves me unconditionally. She is my rock and without mama here she really does comfort me. I sure miss my mom when I am sick or in pain.
I am slowly preparing for a big sale in June and keep pulling from my shed so many treasures. So much work but I pray it is all worth it. I really need to purge some beautiful things. I am so surprised at how much stuff I have accumulated through the years. Blessings Pam

A Weekend of Treasures!

Last Friday it started with a trip to Blackberry Junction a local three time a year shabby show! I am always so anxious to see the booths and how they are set up. So much work goes into each booth. I came home with a few treasures and kept it under $20.00. Lord knows I don't need anything. This large frame which is like 16x20 was $2.00 I couldn't believe it. Loved the basket with lid for $6.00
 Than I headed to an Allasta Party. It is kinda new and I don't know much about it just that I am excited about it. I met a new friend who hosted named Sicily! I came home with this beautiful dish, picnic basket not pictured and my bag came that I had previously ordered. I had the Shabby Hoot added in memory of my parents.

The following day we headed out of town and went to a mini mall sort of speak. They have a World Market and Michaels and needless to say I was so overjoyed. Came home with some treasures. Sunday I played and put them all away.
 Couldn't resist the  braided sea grass rug from World Market. The little heart greenery wreaths were a nice touch to my hutch. Added a little basket and some more greenery. The tea light lights will hang in my back yard this summer. Cant wait.

 Managed to hang some stuff in my bedroom. Oh those blinds though have to go!!!!

 I love my shabby things and am wondering about a place for those wings. I have two pair and love them both. One is painted white and one is stained dark wood like the trim in our home.
Today I went to work and a customer/picker brought me in this scale and all this silverware. A gift and I was overwhelmed again. Be still my Heart! Have a wonderful evening. Blessings Pam

Easter Blessings!

 Hope your having a nice Easter weekend. We started it with a large family dinner last evening. We got to meet the newest addition to our family. A little niece name Saylor. We have had many babies being born lately. So much fun.
 My Londyn aka Shugs, Shuggie Fae, I adore her. She always has a smile on her face. Such a happy girl. Being her gammy completes me!
 After a busy very stressful week, I spent the day alone doing what I enjoy piddling. I had so many things to catch up on and I managed to get most done.

 I won this mason jar on instagram and I turned it into a lamp. I have since been to Hobby Lobby and replaced the lampshade with something smaller.
Tomorrow we will see the grandkids for a short time as they have plans with their great grandparents. I just got done completed their Easter baskets and now time to relax. Blessings Pam
