Christmas Houses and Fall Finds!

Good Afternoon Bloggers! I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend thus far! It seems they are never long enough. I see that blogger is doing something different in how you post your photos. Its actually loading them on the page vs just the typed message. Hmmmmmmm.

I thought would do a short post on the houses I altered. I used glittered scrap paper for the house with the pink roof. I also used glitter on all the flowers and leaves to give them a little sparkle. The snow flakes are Christmas ornaments, they had their own glitter.
Also the two fall decorations I found this weekend. The Welcome wall hanging was 50 cents. The basket was a dollar!

Project and Yard Sale Finds!

Good Afternoon Blogger friends!! I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend thus far! I am finally feeling that the medications are kicking in as I am not coughing as much ,nor is my pain as severe!
I thought I would share a project I finished today. I think it turned out well. I also wanted to share the few yard sale finds of the weekend. Hope you enjoy and I always enjoy your comments!!


I talked my hunka hunka burnin love, Mr.N into modeling my Christmas
Apron I embroidered. You may remember the apron itself from a previous post. Well being the person who I am, it just could not just stay plain. I had to embellish it.



Yard sale Finds!

I fell in love with this guy because of his colors and that he looks old. But he is not old. Do you not think this little donkey is the cutest little guy ever?

I paid three dollars for this glittered wood piece. I may have paid too much. But it has never been used, so I thought it was worth it.

This cute little snowman was fifty cents.

50 cent finds! Projects!

Good Evening my friends in blogland!!
Its a rainy Monday in South Carolina!! But I love the rain! I wanted to share the few yard sale finds of the weekend.
Also, I have been doing some projects. So this is just a short post.

I want to make a note about blogging today. Some of you were posting , or somewhere in blogland I read this statement. You think it is rude to make small comments on bloggers post like: Very Nice! or Nice! and then post nothing else.
I have to say I am guilty of this. But just so you know I try to get around each day to my reading list and visit every blog that has posted.
Because I am so drained at the end of the day, a Very Nice is all I can get out. But I want to post something to let you know I visit your blogs. Just saying.

50 Cents Finds!!

This is a beautiful plate. It has its certificate of Authenticity. But wouldn't you know it, I chipped it bringing it in from the car!

I have a thing for wedding figurines! I just love this one!

A White birdie soap dish!

Another Fridgie!


I made this basket out of an old Christmas container.It had snowflakes painted all over the tin. I painted it spice brown, added some ecru lace, a bow and a flower. Just because I could.......LOL

Inside the basket. The pearl necklace and earrings are both yard sale finds.

Upcycled Sweat Shirt or Maybe Not?
I know , I know these altered sweatshirt days have came and gone. What can I say I am a little behind the times. I am always looking for things to embroidery at yard sales. I found this sweat shirt for 50 cents and decided to upcycle it.
I sewed a Vintage doily in the center of the shirt and embroidered a rose on the center of the doily.geeeeeeeaz oh pete that is a long sentence.
I embroidered a rose on each shoulder.

Before: Do you remember this horse picture I found at the Yard sales. Well the white frame was not cutting it at this house. Sunday, my sweet hubby surprised me and painted it Oil rubbed Bronze.

After: I think it looks much better wearing Oil Rubbed Bronze. Our walls are eggshell so it will look much better on the wall painted this color

Good Evening bloggers! I hope every one's week started off to a good start.
This is just a brief post to share a project. I have been working on this snowman for several weeks now. I have many a burned finger to prove that I glued each one of the beads individually. It was a tedious task, but I think worth it in the end. I guess I have had snow on my mind since my snowflake disease made its ugly appearance. I thought I would turn it into a positive.

The UK on the hat, is for the University of Kentucky. I graduated from there with my Masters degree. It is located in Lexington, Kentucky. My daughter lives there now and is a avid UK basketball and football fan.
She just bought a new house,so this will be a housewarming gift for her. I am going to see her November 5. I am looking forward to going back home for a visit.

Let me know what you think about my snow guy! I did not get his head strait but I think it gives him character.
