If you are like me, you have things you like to style or display..rotate, put into different rooms, swap things out..move around furniture, give yourself a new look..here are some displays I have seen or are mine..what do you do to freshen or change your look?
What a bargain...regularly $40.00...but wait..it was 1/2 price at the Sally Ann! How fast could I start the car and get it in!..She had a few miles on her, some bumps, a sticker or two..but I imagined her in "Polished Pearl." Jim did a light sand with his palm sander and 2 coats later she is in the hallway..still waiting to have a bit of sanding back done and a coat of wax! what do you think? A great storage unit isn't it?
When I arrived home yesterday from Vancouver, this lovely parcel of goodies was in the mail from Suzanne of Meridian Road HERE We have never met, but are great blogging buddies..what a little treasure trove she sent me..this is so sweet..my thanks Suzanne❤
When I come to Vancouver, I always stay with my dear friend Fro, for at least a few days...thrifting and looking thru our favorite shops near where she lives...she is the sweetest of friends, always making me feel so special with her personal touches thru out her home for my comfort! Here are a few of the things we looked at but stayed in the stores!
Fro's wonderful gift to me, the blue knitted fairy, Dagmarilo❤Thank you
I was so pleased when Suzanne put out a post asking some of us who read her blog to be a guest blogger...I have been an ardent fan of Suzanne's blog now for a couple of years..we almost met this year on our way back to BC from AZ...but an ugly dust storm made us change our plans as we got closer to Idaho..hopefully next spring...Check out her wonderful DIY blog HERE
Here in our beautiful Okanagan Valley we are known for our wineries and the orchards...acres and acres of apples, cherries, peaches, pears, apricots and plums..now it is time at the markets to enjoy all this bounty...I hope where ever you live you can have a taste of some wonderful fruit❤
I was so touched with all the wonderful and caring birthday wishes I received..thank you all from my happy heart.❤ Cindy drove in from Nelson...Jim drove me to Penticton so that Cindy and I could meet and have lunch at Poplar winery's Vanilla Pod Resturant..it did not disappoint..the food, the spectacular view and the amazing treasures that Cindy gifted me..a truly special day..I am so grateful to be a year older and to get to see many more sun rises and sunset!
Just look at this book..I can't wait to make some of these for Claire and for a few new babies in our family....oh what fun these will be to make and cuddle.❤ Today I am crocheting squares together for a pillow and crocheting the backing for the pillow..what a good day this is..crafting and listening to some Jesse Cook on my early birthday day gift from my sweetie.. A Bose Sound Dock..such great sound playing throughout our home...thank you, Jimmy❤
