Hi blogger friends…the snow is trying to melt, getting up the road to our house is really trying to say the least. It’s about 8” of slush and ice and you just gun it to get to our drive way or at least I do.LOL We are hoping that it melts little by little so that the river doesn’t flood…our last one was in “93” and they are saying if it does flood it will be worse than the last so I hope it hangs on even until Easter just so the people who get flooded won’t lose so much!
I’d also like to thank the ladies who have been clicking on the free, pink mamogram symbol on my sidebar. In January they gave me a count of how many clicks it had all year…nearly 3,000 so thanks so much…I also added the one for our furry friends so try to click on that too…it makes you feel good that you helped in some way:)
I’ve been to GW at least three times a week , what I do is drop Samantha off at preschool and go right to the GW and just take my time looking sooooooo I’ve started to pick up the Yorktown pattern in the Pfaltzgraff pattern, I’m always on the look out for Phaltzgraff dishes hoping and hoping when I walk in the door there will be some Folkart pattern dishes just waiting there for me, that hasn’t happened yet but a girl can dream:)
Isn’t Live Writer amazing? Look what I did with the pic above…I embossed it, neat huh?
While I was buying those I completely forgot about already having 3 pieces at home that were put away, the two on the right were my mom’s I remember buying these at a store called “Oranges” it was for her birthday back in the 70’s, wish I could remember how much they were back then! The butter crock was Stush’s mother’s so I don’t know to much about who bought it or when. Anyway it’s been fun hunting for it and that’s what it is all about right?:)
I also went to GW to find some bottles to put some labels on and found these two for .79 and .49 a piece.
Also stopped at the Country Store and bought this black, star pillow for my bed goes so well with the black in the quilt!
I also found this candle holder, it’s so neat with the candle snuffer hanging from the end…wasn’t that pricey either.
I’m looking for a four poster headboard and footboard to of course paint black.LOL I’m on Craigslist everyday…I found one lady selling 67 pieces of folkart dishes for $350.00…oh, how I wish I could have had that!!!
This is the top of the shelf cabinet I bought before Christmas and I’m having a hard time finding the right priim to put on top, I saw this candle mat and I think it goes well but finding what to put on it has me stumped, I tried a candle and it just doesn’t look right because I think I need a taller item to put there because above it I have the homespun rack and the spoonrack and to look at it you just need a tall item. I’ll find it one day.LOL
I also bought this much bigger twig wreath to go in my keeping room window instead of the berry wreath that seemed to small…love it!
Well, I work today and I’m going to stop here to go lift some weights then get ready for work:)
HELLO, to my new followers I so appreciate you visiting me and wanting to come back again…your always WELCOME HERE!
