Just a few of my lilacs.
Some are in full bloom,
 while others are about to burst open.
I lost my white one last year,
need to find a replacement.


Did a little Treasure Hunting Saturday.
While heading over to a Moving Sale that was to be grand,
 we stumbled upon an Estate Sale.
Everything had to be gone by Monday.
"Only Girl" (my daughter) and I did find a few Treasures.

These sweet guys caught my eye right from the start!
A herd of bunnies, 7 to be exact!
A small poster of "Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh.
This painting is #4, "the Comic's" and  #2, "Only Girl's" favorite
 painting so we always snag them when we find them.
While helping us carry the finds to the car,
the lady said this is your too...she was
carrying the Jade plant you see. 
Freebies are good!   

A large box of craft paints, a couple of enamelware pans,
a gorgeous watering can (which I will add to my collection),
will add the faux flowers to my treasure pile for a future project,
some ribbon, a new votive,
a set of old oval chalkware plaques
(which may find their way into my living room redo),
an old rhinestone brooch
and the pis de resistance....
a set of old white 6 1/2 ft shutters!
(which may also find their way into my living room makeover)

$20 for everything you see, pretty good I think.
....and that grand Moving Sale...'eh, not really worth mentioning.


I finally found sometime over the weekend to recover my kitchen benches.
When I first found this fabric I fell head over heels for it!

They went from this...

to this:

Love the way they turned out!
Now to keep everyone from spilling on them!

Now go on and skedaddle on over to see this weeks particpants.

  9. Your Lilac mosaic is absolutely beautiful. As for your thrift finds, I would say that you indeed hit the mother load. You had some great finds. Your fabric for your benches is so pretty. If they were in my house the first thing I would do before anyone, myself included even sat on them would be to spray them down good with scotch guard.

    Have a great week!
