4th Of July

 
I had a few days off this past week so I got out my 4th of July bin and started a little decorating.
 
Simple dining room table
 
 

My little old schoolhouse desk


Some artificial flowers in an old crock on my kitchen hearth






My aprons that hang here all year long
 
 


Hang a little red, white & blue here
 
 







 These things make me happy






My side board looking patriotic
 




I got all these things at the thrift shop over the years...........
 


Let freedom ring




  We are staying home for the 4th. Barbeque with friends at our house cuz we can see the fireworks at the Fairgrounds from our backyard......so cool!
 




Well, hope your summer has been happy so far.....mine has!

Thrift Store Finds

 
 
 
I hit the shabby chic jackpot over the weekend 



$1.99 Rachel Aswell....oh yes!!!
The long floral box is drawer liner, unopened and brand new.




Pretty green floral box for my papercrafting supplies and 2 gorgeous sugar bowls.....
I mean who gives that kind of stuff away?






I love this little guest towel holder, I think I will spray paint it a pretty light pink and use it on my vanity to hold my eye shadow pallets


I paid $8.00 for this beauty, I thought it was worth it



Well that is all, I need to get back to laundry and supper for my family


Thank you for visiting and I appreciate your comments

Stuff that makes me smile

June is a beautiful month, our Anniversary is June 25th.
 
 I love to display my birthstone angels.
 
 
 
 
  This little gal is my "gardening angel" I adore her little purple bonnet.
 
 



One of the shelves in my hutch that I display my favorite pretties. (looks like I need to fix that paper I have in the background)




A little shabby chic vignette 





Stuff I have found along the way




Rescued this little tea towel from the Goodwill


Will share my Thrift Shop finds tomorrow.
 
God bless,

The (many) Blessings Of Motherhood

 
 
I am blessed to be the mother of 2, a boy and a girl who make my days sweet,  put a smile in my heart and a joy in my soul that is indescribable.
 
They lavished me with gifts today
 
 
 
 
 
      Heart warming cards





 My daughter gave me the Le Creuset carafe for my orange juice, My son gave me a Charming Charlie's gift card.......they both know me so well
 

These 2 are the reason I smile

 
 



   A daughter is a gift from God



 I am blessed to be her friend and Mother
 

 Oh the cards
 

 My son has a sentimental side too
 

 
 My husband always selects such meaningful cards

 My thoughtful and talented sweetheart surprised me with this for Mother's Day! I had mentioned to him that I wanted a Potting Shed and he built this on the side of my "she-shed". I was speechless, he even went to Walmart and bought me some gardening gloves, flower pots and those adorable wire baskets. He knocked it out of the park with this project and best of all.......it was a surprise!
 
 
 
 Everyday is Mother's Day when you are blessed with a loving family....take time to tell them everyday how much they mean to you.
