Queen Anne's Lace........weed or beauty? I guess it's in the eye of the beholder, but I happen to think they are very beautiful . If you drive along the country roads in the spring you will see thousands of these beauties swaying in the wind. When hosting a party, I always seen to run out of $ when it comes to the flowers, but I would rather have Queen Anne's Lace than Roses. I have tried many times to move these into my yard, with no success. I have since given up transplanting them and I just enjoy them on the side of the road, and in buckets and vases. They seem to make a statement even though they are so simple. My mother always gathered them and let us choose the different color food coloring. And in the morning, we would have red centered Queen Anne's Lace.

Could you resist this Sweet Treat Table?

It was only 5 feet from my table.

Chocolate, Sweet, Sour, what a combo.


Sweet Treats

I love these colors.

And they tasted good too.

I over did this weekend.

I filled my little cup up several times at this table.

But I could not resist.

I love to re purpose items. I love to use it -till it is used up. My and your grandparents did it, used it till it couldn't be used anymore. I love to find old vintage items that are used and used until the wood is smooth and repaired over and over again. I don't know why this appeals to me but it does. So to find a kindred spirit or blog that re purpose's items, is right up my alley.
We all have or will have a entertainment center like this one. Seems the new flat screens are to be hung on the wall. I am still hanging on to my old TV and Cabinet until it won't work, I am just a cheep scape. Why buy a new TV, just cause they are NEW! I don't get it! See Cheep! So what to do with this piece of furniture we paid way to much for. Since I have boys, grandsons, I won't be doing this but I would love all your suggestions. I have noticed a lot of entertainment center at the thrift stores too. So come on yall re purpose your items, lets use them up.

I really love this idea and my daughter would have loved this to play with as a child.
Looks like fun, doesn't it!

Feeling alittle under the weather this week.

Drinking lemon and honey for a sore throat.

On day 5, and it aint getting better.

Went to the drug store and ask for her option, and it is not helping.

So tomorrow I will try and get an appointment with the doctor. I would stick it out but I am going to go play this weekend. Play with sticky folding paper stuff. I will be in Georgia with a bunch of the Alabama gang. Even though I am not up to my old self, I am still going to enjoy it!!!!

Blast from the Past!
(enlarge it and see if you can pick me out)
Could of, would of should of, it what I tell my hubby when we start to daydream out loud about our past.
That is just it, It is in the past.
Move on, live in the day!
But oh, how fat I thought I was back then.....
High school is beginning to be a blur for me. I have selective memory anyway. I remember what I want to remember.
Don't we all.
This was the good times, the days when the most you worried about was if you got a phone call from a boy. Now I hate to hear the house phone ring, cause it is a salesman. If you want me, call my cell phone, text me or send a e-mail.
Oh, how live has changed.
This picture was from 1978.
A long time ago.
I am in black, standing alone, between group one and two.
A fun post.

It has been so hot the last few weeks that it is impossible to work in the yard. We do what we have to and hope we don't pass out. Seems we have a wedding reception coming up in only a month, in my back yard. My baby brother is getting married September 11. I so need to be in my yard trying to pull the weeds that has prospered since the 4th of July party. I have been working on the paper part of the wedding, in the cool inside. But now we are getting down to the nitty gritty. It is time to suck it up and get into that yard. So if anyone, I mean anyone needs a work out, come on over. I would appreciate the help. Seems we are the last minute type. Hoping and hoping for that genie in the jar to appear and look deep into my head and see what I have in store for the decorating, and poof it is done. I will be rubbing all the jars and bottles I find. I am praying for a cool weekend, sometime between now and 9-11. Have a good weekend my friends.

Another Worlds Longest Yard Sale in the books. Finished, completed, done!
And this morning as I sit here in my comfy chair, I miss it. I wish it was still going on. But alas, I will have to wait till next year for more.It was Hot the first day, until after lunch. Then there was alittle rain and it cooled off. But alittle rain didn't stop any of us. And the temp didn't hit 100 again. Low 90's was good. I could handle that. Drank lots of water and wore my yard sale hat.
This is a house in Ky, hard to tell, if it is a yard sale here or not. Ha Ha
It looks like there was and they just walked off and left it all. We saw many house like this one.

This is my freebie. On the last day there is sometimes a box full of freebies. I love it....

Now for a few peeks of my treasures.
I fell for the purse, I don't know why.

Paper goods. This was a must stop for me. I had kicked myself all year for not getting more last year. So when I found this man, he had almost run out of advertising items, but I got a few.

As I posted before, I have been buying Christmas items. Love em!
And there is alot more. There is a kitchen cabinet and a bookshelf. Oh, and a sofa table. I didn't get out any of the glass yet. So you will just have to come by and check it all out. We had a ball. Can't wait till next year.

Day 2 Worlds Longest Yard Sale

This is my find of the day. Green Oatmeal glasses. The lady said she was closing out a booth at a Antique mall and I got them for a steal. I can remember grandmother having these. And she got them out of a box of oatmeal. Memories is what it is all about. Some customers buy because of granny having them. Some come in and just look at the stuff granny had. Either way, come on in. I got other items but you will have to check back next week to see them.

My find for day 1!

And it is mine, all mine, just mine.

And no, it is not old, but looks like it. It is Avon. But I fell in love.

I have this thing about pins.

Got a few other things.

Some Christmas, old pictures, few buttons, gold bowls, kerosene glass jug, ice pack, and a few other goodies.

Yesterday we played Bingo
It was charity Bingo at the Elks Lodge.
In it's day I am sure that the lodge was beautiful.
But it has seen it's better days.
Bingo was hosted in
the "cloud room".

I knew I was playing with the big dogs when the lady I sitting next to had this bag with all her bottles of ink. It is a very fast paced game, with very serious people playing. So I was totally lost the first few games. In the corner, six pack, black out, diamond, big and little. All these ways to play. But I think I got it now. We didn't win. But it was fun. And I bet we will go again.
