Long Night and an Etsy Treasury

After sitting in the Emergency Room most of the night 
with the hubbs,
 it was nice to come home and see this:

A Vintage Holiday Etsy Treasury
by Leah and Ashley from Merivintage.

They chose my Vintage Pearl and Rhinestone Choker
to include in their Treasury.


Now back to hubbs.
He was having chest pain,
he has a heart history,
so I took him to Emanuel Medical Center ER in Turlock.
They went thru the usual routine; labs, EKG, xrays, etc.
 and decided to keep him overnight.
On Saturday they will transfer him to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto
and do an angiogram to see exactly what's going on.

We've been down this road many times,
I'm sure he will be ok.
But any prayers would be appreciated.

Is it Spring?

I'm joining these following lovely ladies this week.
Be sure to visit their blogs, you won't be sorry!


Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie Time



Liz for Fresh Cut Friday over at Rose Vignettes
Liz is also having a wonderful Give Away of
a Fresh Evergreen Arrangement for the Holidays!

This weeks post is short...but sweet..
but even more confusing!

I went for a walk in the gardens looking for bloomers.
Look who I happened upon. 


Yep, my Narcissus are blooming!
Can't blame them, our weather has been so crazy.
Last week we had typical Fall weather for this area...
rainy and in the 50's.
This week we are breaking record highs by being in the high 80's!

So needless to say, I'm confused right along with the garden!

Figuring out what to wear for the day is a real challenge. LOL
But with these pretty white blooms,
how can you not smile?


Now for my Fresh Cut Friday Fall Bouquet

Yes, it does look more like a Spring Bouquet :/


Some of my Lilacs gave me a second bloom so I've placed them along with the Narcissus in my Mom's vintage vase.
I have loved this vase ever since I was little. ♥

Junkin Finds with Linda at A La Carte

Be sure to visit these wonderful Ladies, you won't be sorry!

I was able to make a quick stop at an Estate Sale.
It was quick because I had an hour left til it ended!
I was hoping to find things marked down.
But they started out pricey and stayed that way :(
Probably why after 2 days of sales,
there were still so many things left!

I did managed to find a couple fun things tho...
don't I always?  ;)

These cute little Snow Babies will find a use somewhere.


This person must have done woodworking/cabinetry/etc because there were 4 storage sheds in the back with tons of that kind of thing in them.
One was full of all different kinds of cabinet knobs and hardware.
It was overwhelming.

I didn't need anything like that
but did find a box with some odds and ends,
which included these fun things.

A couple of odd knobs, handles.
The triangle thing is a foot, top left. 
Sure wish I could have found more of them.
It looks old and just plain neat!


There was a coffee can in a corner of one of the sheds.
It seemed to have been over looked by everyone.
Now when we cleaned out the farm,
I remember finding SO MANY coffee cans
 with so many different things in them. I swear Mom and Dad must have saved every coffee an they ever opened!

Anyway, I opened this one and found it full of drawstring bags....


stuffed full by the way!!!


Some still have the paper tags attached to them.
I have all my Dad's that we found,
 but now I can do/make fun things with these
and save his ;)

Everything I picked up didn't have a price
so I held my breath as I approached check out.
$8.oo for all...
not too bad.
