Easter Bunny Display

I found this green display in my neighbor's trash.  You know me, I can't stand to let something good go to waste (especially when it's free) - so it came home with me.

I think it makes a great display for the bunnies and little Easter collectibles.

Yes, they are quite happy here I think.

Pyrex in Pink and Blue

Two of my favorite things to find while junking - vintage linens and pyrex.  

I did the happy dance when I saw these because they are two of my most favorite patterns and in Easter egg colors too.

I can't resist the pink melmac divided bowl either so in the cart it went.

I also found this orange cutie.  

Do you suppose food being served in cute dishes makes it taste any better?

Hello Spring

I love it when the daffodils spring up and say hello.  They are among the first of the spring flowers to say hello and I think they are so pretty.

I found these spelling boards and although they have been fun to play around with, they need a few more letters to be able to spell some words correctly but you get the idea.

Hope you have a "beautiful" day!

Is it spring yet in your neck of the woods?

In Beautiful Light

I have been taking an online mixed media painting course and I am loving it.  I have never done any painting before but have really been enjoying the process.  Serendipity for me today was spying an actual butterfly as I was stepping outside to snap this photo.  I was enjoying watching the butterfly float through the air so much that I totally missed the opportunity to take it's photograph.  Sometimes that happens.  I would rather savor the actual experience than capture it forever through the lens.

May beautiful light shine upon you my friends.

More Than Words

I love finding old games.  I adore the vintage colors and graphics and it's fun playing with them too.

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.  Wouldn't you agree?

Pixie Surprise

I love it when there are smiling faces waiting for me to discover at the thrift.

Especially when they are vintage pixie faces.  What shall I make with these cuties?

A "squealable" thrifty moment indeed.

Happy Valentines Day

Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day.

A surprise came in the mail today from my friend Holly.

It was wrapped so pretty I almost hated to open it.  Well... I said ALMOST... and this what was inside.

The BEST valentines are homemade. Don't you think? Thank you dear Holly.  It is beautiful.

I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating a little thing called
