~ Sydney, Yard Sale Finds and One Busy Weekend~

Hello blogging friends,
I hope everyone had a great weekend...reading some blogs this morning I find out that it sure is true:)
Mine started Thursday evening with packing the car with my flea market stuff...I did pretty good considering it rained and stormed Saturday. We had a good time anyway just sitting and talking and selling:)
Friday morning I took time out to go to Sydney's spring concert, I didn't want to miss it. Here she is flipping her hair back, she has been doing this lately they grow up to fast anymore:) She has a good time at school in fact she loves it and is a good student, no problems with her!
Singing her little heart out:) I hope you don't mind the pics of the girls they love it when I put them on my blog:)

Later on that evening Michael and Corrie came home and we had dinner at The Green Cove outside on the deck...you can see the boats in the background we had a very nice time with great food...they left for Maryland yesterday.

This is Corrie, she is a speech pathologist...

I didn't get to go to all the yard sales along rt. 40, just not enough time what with selling my own stuff:) I did find this birdhouse which I did pay to much for but all of my other ones are getting weather worn and I liked the creme and barn red on it.

I'm doing my entryway different than I had it, used to have a bench in there and a long mirror with hooks but I want more room now so I need to find a ladder back chair like Janeen found and also Lisa, I have a chair that I can use until I find one but it has a rounded back so you can't hang anything from it. I found this patriotic mirror to use in there and I was going to paint it and distress it but now I don't know...I think I'll wait until everything is done and see how it looks. It's supposed to hang like this but I think I'll hang it straight

I swear this corner is the only place I can decorate anymore.LOL

I also found this crow with a homespun tied aroung his neck for $3.00, I thought he was so cute:) I may use him outside I'm not sure though.

Also found this crock for .50 it's not old but I thought it looked it:)

Sunday we all went to breakfast at Eat-N-Park then on to K-Mart where I found some flowers to plant and these flowers below for half off from Mother's Day.

They brighten up this messy house:)
I've been working on my porch swap so that's about all I've been doing as far as crafting goes, also reading all of your great blogs too:)
Well, the towels are done in the dryer so have to go fold and put them away, I hope all are having a great Monday!
