My Treasures~

Good Morning-
I don't have much time this morning so I will keep it short and sweet.  I went browsing yesterday to one of my favorite antique stores and could spend hours in there, and I do believe that I  So I want to share with you some of the great "finds" that I got.  I love old sconces and the basket with the yarn balls was just calling out my name.  I am looking forward to major redoing my decorating and moving furniture around and such, so I sure that I will find a great place for these. 
We have a cattle business that keeps growing and growing and I am so proud of my husband and all his hard work that puts towards our business.  Tomorrow is our annual Bull Sale here at our farm and it is a huge day for us.  I am so thankful for the weather that we are having, even though it is going to be cold, there is no snow coming.  That makes it so much easier for all the cattlemen to get around.  I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend, and please say extra prayers for our BIG day tomorrow.

Good morning ladies~
I was so happy to open this package that I got my from neice in Colorado today.
She makes some fun jewelry and I have several of these scrabble tile necklace
charms, so I asked her for some more and she sent these to me and I love each
one...trying to decide which one to wear when I go with a friend to lunch tomorrow.
Other than that, I recently had internet trouble and wow that is hard to not have that

Terrific Tuesday!

Well all I can say is it was another fun day at GW...sometimes do you ever think WOW this is my lucky day?  I believe that this happened to me today.  I found so many cool craft items that were calling out my name and I only spent $33.00 to get all of these.  The grapevine wreaths are in perfect condition, the floral stems are some of most unique ones I have seen and in such earthtone colors too, the old cheese grater was just sitting there looking alone and I can't wait to make it into some type of arrangement, and then there are the two grapevine baskets that are a set with berries strung throughout prim!  I had to share these items with you and I plan on getting busy in my craft room to see what creation I come up with....Till next time....

Good Afternoon~
I am looking outside my basement window and the wind is howling and the snow is blowing by. The kids were presently surprised to have a snow day today, after going back to school for 1 day. I have spent this past week organizing closets and cupboards, what a good feeling that is. Yesterday I ventured out to a couple of my favorite "woman" stores and got some awesome bargains. I will share with you some photos later. I best get back to my list of things to do today. Stay Warm!

Monday, January 4, 2010

Here I sit and am thinking of all the wonderful things my kids and I did over their Christmas break, and all I can say is that I will miss them terribly as they go back to school tomorrow. It has been an interesting holiday season....we have had snow and ice for some time now, and it made the traveling a little difficult, but through all of that we had lots of time together. Have a good night everyone.
