Thought I would make up this arrangement with the berry picks I bought and twigs Saturday at the rummage sale, also if you click on the picture to make it large you will see the rustic birds I bought and placed them in the arrangement. I also bought a pie safe and lots of beautiful florals that I have arranged on my mantel. I will show them soon. Have a great Day!!!!

I got the bug to do some thrifting, found this antique iron stone tea set for $2.95 during lunch. Also I saw a chair leave the thrift store today that was to die for, as I watched it go into another persons car, I was already dreaming of where I was going to put it, darn if I had just been a few minutes earlier.

In the mood to change my fire place mantel, found this strawberry carrier antiquing for $15.00. I decided to go shopping at one of my favorite shops and she had these moss covered balls marked down and had ordered new greenery which looks so real, you would have to touch it to see if it was real or not. I love to change things out often and rearrange things,who knows what will be up there next week. Have a great Sunday.

I wanted to wish all of you a Happy 4th and thought you might like to see some pictures around the house. Remember the table, it's now on my porch, found this old milking bucket out antiquing and thought i would fill it with black-eyed susan. After i did this i realized it matched the table. Have a blessed day!!

I found a place for my white table, in my kitchen but my husband not to keen on the idea. I told him we will leave it for a while to see if we like it. He likes everything clean and sparing, me the more the merrier. Also the cabinet and the arrangement is over my toilet in the bathroom. The shaving cabinet is a 1800's piece i found at an auction awhile back the arrangement i did myself. Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!!!

I have really gotten into more gardening this year and landscaping. I'm getting ready to take a spot on the side of my house were there are big trees and nothing grows under it and plant a perennial garden with large rocks and a rusty patina bird bath, i have also found a fountain that i want for a place between my house and garage. These are some of the flowers that will be planted.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, it has been so beautiful here. Thought i would share a project I did on this old farm table. The farm table had been orange and then they tried to paint it a brown color. I decided I wanted it to be cream, so I sanded and painted it with a cream satin paint and then distressed the heck out of it. I love the results. Now i don't know if i want to put it on my back porch, let my daughter have it as a desk or use it in my kitchen.

Love these pictures, I would like to have another pond someday. I had one at our old house, I did everything, I even dug all the dirt myself, gathered rocks of the side of the road to planting all the flowers. When we sold the house the one thing they talked about was my pond. It wasn't a large pond but very manageable.
