Here's hoping you all have a wonderful day of fun, family and patriotic pride!!

I made this cute flag for my front porch to hang under my patriotic banner.

It took all of about 30 minutes to make and I hot glued the whole thing together.  I used a tension rod to hold it and covered it in fabric also.  I put a layer of white lace where the two fabrics came together and then glued on all different sizes of white vintage buttons. 

My front porch is all covered, so it should stand up well against the weather.

I think everyone in the neighborhood will know that


Have a safe and happy 4th!

The Stages of the Hydrangeas

Don't you just love watching the hydrangeas go thru their various stages of blooming?

I certainly do.  Each new bud is in anticipation of a gorgeous full flower.

Thanks for all of the good comments on my post about my Etsy shop.  I appreciate all of the input.

I have decided that I am going to do the grouping of items for the shop.  These will be by colors and/or themes.

Sara @ My Woodland Garden said it would be like opening a treasure box.  So, since I share with you my Saturday Treasures, I'm going to call them Saturday Treasure Boxes.

I have also decided since so many of my loyal readers love the pieces I find, that I'm going to be showing them to you all first and give you first chance.  I plan on setting a designated day of the week to show you my collections before posting them to my shop.

I am going to do this container by container so I will be working on it while the contractor is working on my house which is scheduled to start July 11th.  I don't know how much time I will have for the next month to post but will do my best.  Just know if I'm not posting, I'm working and photographing my treasures to share with you all.

I will be doing before, during and after photos of the construction.  It's going to be hectic around here.  I guess my biggest worry is that John is not here and I am having to make all of the decisions by myself and secondly, how Bella is going to handle all of these people coming in and out of her house.

Hopefully she will adjust - and me too!

OK, So What Do You Think???

OK, so most of you readers know that I shop regularly at garage sales and estate sales and find alot of really good items.

I have reached a point where my house as well as my storage building is crammed full.  So, I must get rid of - rather pass some of my precious items on to another home!  LOL

So, here is my plan.  Please let me know what you think of it.  Good or bad!!

The price of shipping has just gone out of sight.  I lose money everytime I ship something - usually just a dollar or two but still a loss.

I am considering grouping a selection of like items as in the picture above for sale.

The items would be color related or theme related. There would be 3-4 items in each lot - some with color coordinated doilies and/or linens.  I could wrap them and ship three to four items for almost the same price as shipping one item.

Breakable items have to be wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed and then boxed in another box with additional padding.  So it is alot of work.

Would you consider buying in lots rather than individual items?

Am anxious to get your feedback.  I have lots of stuff!!

Let me know.

Laynee Turns Four

So hard to believe that Laynee turned four years old.

Every little girl needs a make up vanity and stool.

And a bag full of make up to go with it.

A doll...


clothes and of course new shoes....

and a new shiny pink bike.

Cake and ice cream complete the party.

Kaycee was in a party mood...

and ended up in the pool full of ice and pop!!

Laycee was a little more laid back and just enjoyed the party and the park.

And little Bentley slept thru it all.  Not much of a party goer yet!

A good time was had by all.  We had charcoaled hamburgers, hot dogs and all the trimmings and of course - cake and ice cream!
