Looky!!! I found these very pretty blue rose plates. They were in the garage! Weird! Some have nicks and some "stain" around the edges. However, there are enough for 2! I've already been using the square ones. I've decided that I'm going to USE the vintage plates. Duh...they do no good sitting in the china cabinet! The linens are from the same sale.
Grandgirl has fast pitch tourney all weekend. With the rain on one day, they just shorten the time to play. I went yesterday and haven't heard how she did today.
It's going to be a quick week. Having a family reunion up in the Brainerd area on Saturday. I'll have to check out the local antique shops. The reunion is my dad's side. My dad passed away 17 years ago. There were 11 siblings. I have only 1 uncle left on this side and 1 auntie on my mom's side.
OKAY, the person receiving the little package of treasures IS: ....MELISSA at Melissa's Antiques. Please email me your information at firstname.lastname@example.org THANK YOU!
Since I'm "cleaning" the house for the wedding...another giveaway will be coming up! I'm thinking it may be something "PINK" or maybe "BLUE"...LOL!!!
Have a wonderful 4th Of July!!!

I'm not a huge red, white and blue girl..however I looked around the house and the gifts from Debbie, I came up with this mantle vignette. It works...
These sweet rain boot where heading to the trash and I saved them. A friend of mine was going to throw them out because they had mouse poop in them and were dirty! Not anymore! LOL!
SO, it is my blogs 6th Birthday as I like to call it! You are all very "berry" special blogging friends. As a little "Thank You" I put together this little gift for one of you. Blogging has opened up so many things for me. "WHO KNEW"!! I appreciate your prayers, support, friendship, decorating ideas, gifts and so much more!
I have included a vintage strawberry hankie, old cottage cheese container, "faux" strawberries, strawberry tea towel, cards and little strawberry Avon with box. Just leave a comment that says: "YES" to have your name in the drawing which will be on Friday! Sorry, I'll only be mailing in the US....
Warmly and with appreciation,

Hubby went Saturday for me as I was getting ready for the bridal shower and came home with them!
Debbie Kay. We send each other little gifts during the year. Some of these on are my 4th mantle that I will show you next time. THANK YOU, Debbie!
Erica sent me these darling little Christmas stickers. Aren't they just too sweet! THANK YOU, Erica!
Thank you for the sweet comments about daughter's bridal shower! Everything is going well and the BIG DAY will be here soon!
Hot & Humid this week...not complaining...just saying...LOL!!! Sweet Pea and Jackson Brown found a nest of baby bunnies last night...1 of the 4 survived. The dogs don't intend to"kill" them, they "play" with them...It's sad and it's nature.
I have my duty day at Auntie M's on Saturday 10:30-4:00 :)
Have a Sunny Day!

We had a nice storm before the shower started and the power went OUT!!! I was busy getting candles out....and then the power came back on! Thankful!!! So, I forgot to take some before photos of the few decorations I put up...sometimes things don't go as planned!
We did go to a couple of estate sales this weekend..so I'll "show N tell" soon! Just smalls :)

This is the 3rd or 4th vehicle that we have bought at an estate sale! It's a little " fancy" for me :) We got a SUPER DEAL on it...it's a tad tough inside as "teenage" boys had been driving it! I drive it like an "grandma", for now! LOL!! I was hoping to WAIT until next year for a different vehicle, but it was a SUPER DEAL....
I've been doing some touch up painting, outside yard work, and more "cleaning up". Tomorrow I am getting a mannie/peddie with my daughter! A little girl time :)
Grand girl's last day of 5th grade is tomorrow!!! Awww...so we will go to the Dairy Queen for our "traditional" last day of school treat! She is changing so much. I'm feeling a little sad that "grandma" isn't so important anymore :(
Just wanted to do a quick post before the shower. See you after the shower!

Mr Gnome lives in this planter just outside the breezeway. He has lived there for a couple of years and seems very happy :)
Another view. We price our re-sell items here and the table had been loaded with "stuff" FAR TOO LONG!
I've also started working out! It's been a long time since I've worked out! DISCIPLINE...
Tomorrow is haircut and we are then visiting Mark, who has the cancer. Saturday is my Mom's birthday, taking her and my Auntie out for dinner. Grandgirl has fast pitch tourneys that we'll watch if they don't get rained out. A fun and fast weekend!
Thank you for your prayers for Mark. I know that God hears and answers :)
