Honey.... Come quick

This afternoon I am sitting here enjoying some "ME" time and the phone rings!
{not a telemarketer this time} It's hubby...
"Hi babe I am down at Kim and Butchs' house"...... pause.... "you need to get down here right away"
Me... "whats wrong?"
Hubby.... "they are having a sale and you need to come quick"
So I jump on the dune buggy and hit the gas.....
Looky what I brought home with me......

A Claire Murray kitty throw {new with tag}
Sorry the picture is washed out.... I hung it on the line to get a quick picture and the sun is so bright! The colors are really vibrant and pretty!
Think I will throw this over the wicker love seat on the porch!
And put it in the guest cottage in the winter!
How much????? a whopping $3.
Ouuu I love this victorian ladies in the garden plate.....
perfect for our front room!

Are you ready for this?
This set of cherub sconces cost 50 cents!!!!
I am so freakin excited!
I am going to paint them to bring out the detail!
Not sure if I will hang them in our bedroom or the front room!
{What a steal... they are metal with glass globes}
Here is a close up so you can see how sweet they are!
Great deal huh!
One scoop or two????
I had to buy this cherry cute purse.....
{25 cents}
I think I will keep all the barbie shoes and lil accessories in it for the girls!
I also bought a few books, a statue, a silver bowl, suitcase, albums and some other goodies!

I am so glad hubby called me....
I trained him well!

Until next time,
Hugz and Blessings

Cute Stuff

I have some cute stuff to share with you!
My trusty assistant is here to help... well supervise maybe!
{she is my shadow.. mommas kitty girl}
Say Hi to the girls kitten! :-)

We have had our 4 year old grand daughter here with us for the past week!
We went to the river to play in the water, build sand castles, played in the pool, had many tea parties, dressed and undressed the barbies more times then I can remember, swang on the tire swing, went for rides on Poppys' tractor, took pictures, went for walks looking for deer, ate ice cream at the corner house ice cream parlor and so much more!
Now that she has gone back home, I can get my groove back!
Get some "ME" time again.

While downstate meeting our newest grand princess I popped into my favorite Salvation Army store
{boy are the prices getting out of hand there.. Has anyone else noticed that or is it just that one}
I did manage to find a few inexpensive goodies to turn into treasures!
Love those tall ice cream glasses oh and the scio hazel dish....
{those I am adding to my collection}

Take a look at these cuties!
Daughter and hubby are ice cream fanatics!
They loooooooooove ice cream!

{me I could take it or leave it}
When I saw these cute lil Ben & Jerrys I knew they'd flip!
Aren't they too cute?
There is a lil spoon in the top of the lid too!
I love cuppy cakes......
This way too cute placemat came all the way from Australia......
Made by Karen {my cup cake swap partner}
Thank you Karen this is awesome
{Karen hurry and start a blog, you are an awesome seamstress}

Can we say CUUUUUUUTE???
I am so excited to tell you about this new shop!
Jannets Country Cottage
Jannet crochets these cute cuppy cakes, fun strawberries and more!
Thank you so much Jannet....these are so sweet,
Ladies go visit Jannets shop...tell her that Dolly sent you!

Don't you love when there is a surprise package in your mailbox?
I received this vintage cherry towel in the mail from Barbara at 123 Lavender Lollipop Lane
Barbara saw it while shopping and thought of me!
How sweet is that!
Thank you with all my heart Barbara... you are such a sweety!
{the cute towel next to it was sent to me from Michelle at Yapping Cat}

Until next time,

When I was little, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be you.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual needs, Another your magazine fetish, Another your love for cherries, Another will be with you in your season of confusion, Another will be your clarifier, Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life, On whatever the occasion, On whatever the day, Or whenever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back, Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself .. Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in several.. One from 7th grade, One from high school, Several from the college years, a couple from old jobs, On some days your mother, On some days your neighbor, On others, your sisters, And on some days, your daughters.

So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Know that God has placed them in your life

To make a difference.

Thank you all for being here with me... sharing your lives, homes and families!
And thank you for making a difference in MY life!

Have a blessed day!
P.S. I know it's been forever since my last post!
Thank you for all the emails.... of concern and wondering where I am!
My life has been total chaos lately...
here it is in a nutshell...
We had storms and tornados...
Hubby had surgury, {all is well}
Our 4th grandbaby was born!
{we are going to meet Little Miss Madison Rae tomorrow}
Birthday parties, & graduations.
My 2 kitty girls had to get spayed
{ I wonder if it was as tramatic for them as it was for me}
We planned a big flea market for the 4th...
A LOT goes into getting that ready!
My mum called and said she was coming up to stay
{that means I clean the house from top to bottom, wash walls, windows, floors everything comes off the walls and out of every cabinet to be washed}
We spent 3 full days at the market...
Entertained mum.
Made 16 quarts of strawberry jam!
Oh theres lots more but you can see why I have not had time to even think about posting!
I do have alot to share with you....
* * Good stuff * *
Pictures of our new princess coming soon!
Please for give me if you are waiting on swap goodies....
I promise that is on the top of my list,
now that things look like they might be settling down a bit!
