Buckle Up

Happiness is . . . . .

Finding a bag of vintage buckles
while out thrifting today.

Fabric, metal, lucite, bakelite
and mother of pearl (my favorite).

They sing a song of joy to my heart.
Do you have a favorite?

Something to Crow About

Meet Sparkle.

She is a collector of bling and all things shiny and interesting.  She sits atop my antique cupboard.  Speaking of bling...Notice the new little chandelier?

I had been searching and searching for a petite chandy to hang right above my cupboard.

I think it adds the little "sparkle" that is needed here.  The crows seem to enjoy it too.

By the way, I am missing a dangly diamond earring.  Has anybody seen it?

Sparkle??? Do you know anything about this?
No?  I didn't think so.

Life has been busy here lately, but I won a couple of giveaways and want to share the lovelies I received with you.

This Jeanne d'Arc Living Amazing Retreats book is a feast for the eyes.  I won a giveaway from Tracie from My Petite Maison.  This beautiful book is full of gorgeous photography and recipes.  A book I will gain inspiration from and treasure.  Thank you Tracie for this gorgeous gift.

The beautiful china tea cup with roses was sent to me by my friend Deb of Garage Sale Gal.  Deb wanted to share this gift with me in honor of the memory of her sweet friend Mary Ella who also loved to collect tea cups. She even wrapped it in a beautiful vintage doily.  Thank you so much Deb.  I will enjoy drinking my tea from this pretty cup.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity ladies.

  If you would like to visit them, please click on their names to link up with their blog.  I hope you visit them and tell them Danielle sent you.

I'm busy getting out the fall decorations.  More photos to come.

Scrambled or Fried?

My chickens have left me a surprise this morning. In fact, two surprises.

Two beautiful brown eggs.
Finally, they have started laying.

So how do you like your eggs?
