"Loveliest of lovely things are they
On earth that soonest pass away.
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower."
--William Cullen Bryant

I thought this little poem was beautiful... this is a gardenia and a little rose from my front  flower bed.

Recent Treasures

I haven't been doing a ton of treasure hunting lately.... The things in my booth have been selling quickly and I need to restock. I actually found these treasures several weeks ago.  I painted this white and put it in my booth.

I painted both of the trays and the scoop. They turned out very pretty. I filled the scoop with shells.

I found  a huge amount of beautiful shells at goodwill. I only bought half of them and I am sorry about that.

I love this magazine rack.... I painted it white and it is destined for Chantilly.

These Ice skates were at Good will and I think they will look good painted and maybe add a water slide Christmas time.

This is a keeper. I don't know where it is going but I love it!

This is already hanging at my parents cottage.... some finds you have to share with family :)

I found an ugly sign at goodwill and I painted over it and stenciled it. It is now in my booth. I have a lot more to show you all.
 I am in the middle of a very busy time in my family. My favorite Uncle is in ICU in a very bad condition. He is only 53 but he may not make it.... I would covet your prayers for him.... and the family.

A Day of Beauty

Over the weekend my husband and I went away BY OURSELVES!  We did a lot of driving in North Florida and acted like we were retired LOL. Along the way there was tons of wildflowers. I decided to stop and take some photos.

When I got out of the car along came a whole pack of mules running to me. They were so cute. I wish I had an apple or two...but I had nothing.

The wildflowers were stunning. These pics do not show all of the beautiful colors we saw.

As we left I felt bad. I think they were disappointed..... I know I have been MIA lately. We have been soooo busy. I am now working on some things for my booth. They called and said all of your stuff sold out again this week. It is a good problem to have. I am just overwhelmed with things to do at this it has become a juggling act. I will show some of my finds tomorrow. I hope you are all well.  I have missed visiting you all.
