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?

heart chair

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.

Stay warm and free-bundleup clipart cause Baby it’s cold outside!!

Until the next time!

  5. Wanda, You hit the jackpot at GW. I love everything you got. The little carriage clock is unbelievable for 99cents. My GW is not a great one, but I do have a TS 1/2hour away that is awesome, but only go once in a while. ~Ann
