Playing & Purging

 I have been so busy working around the house cleaning, pitching, re-purposing, and of course "playing" in the little nooks and crannies.
My husband painted this for me, it wasn't quite the yellow I was looking for but shhhhhh I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I will re-paint it when he is not looking

Rearranged the top of my hoosier a little

We took a little drive a couple of weeks ago to a place called "Charlie Brown Farms" and my husband bought this cookie jar for me. I love it

This sweet salt & pepper truck made its way into my bag........

I love my little Campbell's Soup kids salt & pepper shakers. They were $3.00 at The Salvation Army.

A little stack of "apple books"

Yes yes, I love apples

I added this little berry pitcher to my coffee station

A cute little red doily makes it feel right at home.

A little vignette in my kitchen......oh look at that remote for the ceiling fan......oops I just point & click, I don't stage like a pro......I just live in my humble little house. LOL

The little strawberry pitcher was a Marshall's find and the little fruit dish was at the Goodwill. 
Enjoying my garden this year......hard to believe it is almost August and it will soon be put to bed for the winter. Enjoy the rest of the summer and enjoy your week.

A Change Of Taste

When I was a young(er) gal I didn't really follow a decorating pattern, I just went with what I liked and sort of decorated around it. Then I became attracted to "romantic style" or "shabby chic" and ran with it. I painted everything white, visions of soft roses and lace danced in my head and I just couldn't get enough "pink" in my world. I still adore it but find my taste kinda changing. Ok not in a dramatic way, I mean I am not giving it all up for "black lacquer" or anything like that, just trying to see my world with a little more color and diversity in it.

Here are some of my recent thrift shop finds

This pretty green compote grabbed my attention. It has a little chip in it but $1.99 can see past that

This little pot/planter spoke "Valentines Day" decor to me
I spied this little braided ceramic whatchamallit  and decided it would be perfect on my desk at work to hold my cellphone.
Love this little pic. I will undoubtedly paint the maybe

I found this little green pitcher at the Goodwill and picked it up for my daughters apartment. I have been scouring the Thrift Shops for some "home" decor for her little place. 
 The longer I looked at it the more I liked it.....I have the perfect spot for it here at our house. She doesn't read my blog so she won't know I kept it. Lol


 Still lovin my "Farmhouse" decor for the kitchen. Chicken basket, pot holder & red Pyrex all from the Thrift Shop........Tomatoes from my garden.

My sister-in-law found this Scentsy burner at the Salvation Army and bought it for me.

Love it!

A tisket, a tasket a pretty yellow basket. 

Wow I am enjoying decorating with colors I never dreamed I would use. Its fun to see how they can change the vibe in a room and compliment little spaces throughout our home.

Color me happy,

Patriotic Style

I love to display my "patriotic pretties"
My little July angel got things started
The glasses holding my little flags are Hazel Atlas I found at the Salvation Army last year.....I love em

Scattered my patriotism here and there

Apple Pie on the 4th of July

Or maybe Cherry Pie is your pleasure

I rescued this uh-dorable pie dish at the Goodwill over the weekend. Just sitting there brand new screaming "take me home". Paid the cashier $3.99 and made it mine all mine.


Happy 4th, be safe, have fun, eat lots and celebrate with those you love.
