valentine doves

Hi Everyone! I wanted to pop in to wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day! I hope all of you have a day of Love today and everyday :) My DH took me out to a wonderful steak dinner last night to the Longhorn Steakhouse and Oh! Yummmmm!It was so gooooood!!! This morning I took him out for a scrumptious breakfast….another Yummmmm!

I am now having trouble with my internet server. I am waiting for a technician to come and install a new modem and check for any problems in our wiring. The signal is not reaching the modem. I am so tired of cp problems…one of the reasons that I wasn’t on for a while was that I got a virus on my cp and lost everything. I have since bought a laptop, which I like (I wasn’t sure if I would like it, being used to a desktop), now I can sit in the LR on my comfy chair and surf the web, and read all of my blogging friends post’s. Pause..Comcast is here!

Resume: Well two days of playing around and my modem was the problem…thank goodness that’s all is was and they replaced! Oh the woes of technology!!

I thought I would show you a couple more of my finds. This little cubby I had bought at a yard sale in the fall and just started using it. The person that made it used nails for the drawer pulls…cleaver and cute! My little bird was a TS find…another 99 cent item.


I bought the crock print from a friend of mine at her yard sale this past summer, and the Black Horse sign I bought recently at a surplus store that opened in our area….they have a lot of things I love there…prim and country.

I have one more thing that I want to show you….Mother Nature gave me a cake…


I supplied the cake stand and the reindeer topper, isn’t it beautiful?? (What is sitting under the table is a antique Christmas tree stand that I use for my summer umbrella) As beautiful as it is, I am so ready for Spring, but the forecast for tomorrow night here in Central Pa is for another 5 to 7 inches of snow….ugggggg..please hurry Spring!

Well time to close, if I don’t soon get this posted Valentines Day will be over! I hope all of you had a Happy One!

Until the next time!

A Few Treasures and A Easy Project

heart love

Hi to all of my blog friends! It has been a while since my last post….I hope I remember how to do this.

I hope all of you that are in this snow storm we are having, are all snuggled up in your warm nest! I am so tired of snow and so ready for Spring! As each decade passes in my life I really don’t like snow at all…”snow” translates to “work”, and lots of it. I remember how I loved all of those pretty white flakes falling from heaven and couldn’t wait to get all of my layers of clothing on so I could go play…now I moan and grown and struggle to get all of those layers on so I can go out and work! Oh to be a grown up!!! I must say though that I truly enjoy looking at the beautiful layers on the trees, as you see in the picture that I took from the first storm over the week end.

They are so pretty!

Now Cash on the other hand just has a blast “drift diving”, he loves being outside, he lays by the door waiting to get out to play.

Even when he is so “tuckered out” he lays by the door for his next chance for the great outdoors!

I love him…he’s my baby!

Cash Heart 1

I have a few finds that I bought at the TS and GW. I love this little chair, I don’t have to do anything to it..I have to find the right spot for it, but isn’t it cute?

black wax heart

Love this black wax heart….I think someone cleaned out their Valentine decor, there was a lot of it the day I went treasure hunting….

heart love

This Heart basket was only 99 cents, the Love sign I already had.

clock quail eggs

I really couldn’t believe this clock…another 99 cent find!

Daisy cow painting

I love my “Daisy” the cow painting, she is painted on old barn wood…I think the artist did a fantastic job, she hangs in my kitchen. This was my most expensive….$5.99, to me it was a great find!

Do any of you have the old zinc canning jar lids? Look what you can do with them. I seen these at a Craft Show, they looked pretty easy to do. I had bought a box of these lids at a auction some time ago, thinking that I would use them on my mason jars that are missing lids. I had plenty of lids left (being the collector that I am, I still buy these lids every time I see them), so I will make more to hang on my tree for Christmas this year.

mason jar lid

Take some wire and wrap around the lip and then make a handle to the size you want, twist and cut. I took some batting and grunged it with coffee, tied a small piece of cheesecloth on the handle, that I also grunged in coffee. I had a tea light battery candle and set inside . There, your done…easy project. I didn’t take any pictures during my making of my candle holder….sorry.

Well I’m going to close for now. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. I really appreciate your taking the time, please come back.

Until the next time!
