Thanks for stopping by!!

I have found so much inspiration that I have started sharing my own addiction of tablescaping. Please feel free to join me as I enter my journey and share my passion for decorating with all my lovely little "treasures".

I decorate my home with vintage, thrift store, yard sale and hand me down items. I shop ebay with a vengance for dinnerware and glassware, the postal service must adore me!

I am very casual, but a bit fussy when it comes down to details. I have spent two thirds of my life in the south, but the southerners say my "nothern side" still comes out! I am guessing this is not such a good thing....and visa versa when I am around my northern relatives, "give me a break"!

Join me any way.......I hope we can be blogging buddies no matter where we all live :)

Lighten Up!

Things have been so "heavy" around here as of late.  Seems like everything is so dramatic and eventful that I just needed to kick back and do a little "chillen".

Anika had a dentist appointment yesterday. After I picked her up from school,we hit a thrift store!  We were early!  Who knew the line in front of the school was going to be short, the traffic was good and the thrift store was right on the way.

You know you have seen these frogs before~but have you ever seen a PINK one?

Here I am soaking his mouth out with soap, he has seen many a steel wool pads!
A new pink chic vase and a milk glass plate.  Yes I have a set of theses milk glass plates, paid a tidy sum for them.......this one was $1! S-C-O-R-E

This was my next found treasure,  A vintage Home Interior Ladle!  Don't you love my great pictures?   Nice and blurry huh?
Well I had every intention of painting this pink, would I ever find it in my house? 
So I picked up the green sparay paint and now I think she is a beauty, but now the whole wall needs a re-do.
I will have to get back to you on that one lol 

I hope you get to spend some good quality time doing what you enjoy today!!!~
