I'm Baaack!

Ok, I have been a bit busy these past couple weeks and sort of neglected my poor blog, but now I am back! My poor geraniums are busting out of their little pots and are wanting to get their 'toes' outside!
I need to have a couple of good warm weather days so I can go out and get some serious planting done...including getting my geraniums in the garden.

Ya put your right foot in, ya put your right foot out, ya put your right foot in and ya shake it all about!...
Remember those fun tunes? I know I sure do! It's good to be a kid, even for just a few minutes.

My dear friend, Lynn is moving her little shop, "Hidden Treasures" from the little Barber shop she currently occupies to a larger shop...My hubby & I have been helping Lynn & her hubby, John...trying to get the new shop ready to move into and up and running by April 3rd...
As is with all old early 1940's buildings in small communities (w/o building codes & standards) the walls were horrible, cracked, uneven and just plain I nailed up fabric on one of the walls & then glue gunned trim down to cover the seams.
It's always fun to decorate someone else's place! lol!
Remember these? if you were around in the 1950's & '60's you probably have a mom, aunt, grammy or sister who use to make these...I am not sure what was used to 'fill' them, styro-foam maybe? I just squished in plastic bags...This set includes one each, lettuce, a red bell pepper, tomato, onion, a very large pea? and pineapple....too cute!

Ok, here is the "Out to Junk Bunch", left to right, firemama~ Amanda, pastblessings~Brenda, dairyprincess~Heather, kpaints~Karen & me~katmom.
Our day started out by meeting up at Spencer's Antiques for some serious and silly antiquing...then we all piled into firemama's "mommymobile", hit Starbucks for a Java fix and on over to Brenda's soon to be new farm home...we walked around the property, and took this group photo. (click on the pic to 'imbiggen it' to see us better)
Afterwards we went over to Hillyard to hit some more antiques shops.
All in all it was a lovely day to get out and play and spend time with good friends.
Ok, I have discovered... the site...oh I can shop & bid on stuff from the Goodwill site while in the comfort of my home, mug of java in hand and a kitty snoozing in my lap, all the while still wearing my P.J.'s......
I won these these terrific 1950's & 60's antiquing magazines. I also won a vintage vase and the Hokey Pokey (above) album... The best part is, I can swing by & pick up my winnings when in town instead of paying for shipping (unless I win an item from out of the area) I am currently watching a quilt that I would like to win...just don't tell my hubby,,,it's bad enough I am an Ebay & Craigs List junkie! lol!
