Hi, blogging friends...I hope everyone is having a good day, a little chilly here but sunny and that's okay by me:) This post also has alot of pictures so grab some coffee, tea or some Diet Dr. Pepper...Janene:)
Yesterday I got to meet Donna from Elm Hollow Primitives...I was at the hairdressers and she stopped in and we went on from there, she took me to the neatest place that was so near my hairdresser's and I didn't even know about it:0!!! Of course we had prims for each other and I'll let Donna show what I gave her when she starts to blog again, right now she is taking a break but still stop over to see all the great things that she has done.
Look what she found for me, an enamel soapholder, she had seen on my one post where I had said I really wanted one and just look at the design in it, so sweet, I hate to put a grungey soap in it to cover it up so I'll leave it as is for now. Thanks
Donna I just love it:)
Also look at what else she surprised me with...a small flyscreen!!! It looks old because it is and it's made from an old handheld drainer, remember those? They have two hooks that would hook over the pan while you strained food into it, just take the handle and the hooks off and you have an old flyscreen. I bought wood knobs today at Lowes so I'll see if it will be the right size for it. Love it! The jar candle with the wire handle I bought at Treasures in Thyme and it's called " Aunt Kook's Apple Cider" smells soooooo good! I also bought the wrought iron hook thinking that maybe I could hang the candle somewhere???:)
That's not all...also included was a blue, quilted heart and some blue thread spools, I still have to find homes for these, I really had alot of fun in the short time we were together so much so that I forgot to get a pic of us so maybe next time:)
This is where Donna took me, isn't it the neatest place, I swear she has everything in this store, before I forget here is the address and phone #:
Treasures in Thyme 707 Regis Avenue, Pleasant Hills PA 15236
412-655-0107 such a nice lady too and I can't remember if her name was Lynne or Linda. I wanted to get a picture of her too and forgot so maybe next time because I will be going back at least once a month because that's when I get my hair done:) Here are pics of the place:
Donna said for summer it's all decorated outside and for Christmas too!
I could have bought one of everything ladies but you all know how that is:)
I had such a good relaxing time and I hope me and Donna can get together again soon! I sure enjoyed her company and being able to meet a blogging friend!
Today I took Samantha to preschool then shot on over to the GW and I'm glad I did! New stuff out and this was on a shelf just waiting for me to pick her up and take her home, it's a big wooden bowl 12" across and 37" around. It's not old old but it sure had alot of dust settled in it like it had been stored for awhile and it's also worn on the sides...no markings either but for $1.99 I'm happy! I think I'm going to put some walnut stain on it and see how that looks if it doesn't look good then I'll paint it:)
I was so excited about getting the bowl that I almost missed this shelf, it's already painted a creme shade so I'm just going to stain it and distress it. Oh, I paid a $1.99 for it too.
I put some prim stuff in it so you would be able to see how big it is, I don't know what I'll do with it but I'll think of something:)
Tammy from The Olde Hollow Crow is having this wonderful Easter giveaway, boy, I could just rip into those Reese cups:) Love the sweet sampler and cheese box with the grunged up eggs that Tammy made just for one of us, so stop by Tammy's to sign up for this great giveaway:0
