Spring is Here and a Few of my Favorite Things....

I was recently going through some of my old photos and thought I would share with you a few of my Favorite Things!

My chippy angel bust... she is not old, I purchased it at Hobby Lobby a few years ago, but I just love her!

A vintage "Toilette" water perfume bottle is for sure a keeper.

Vintage jewelry looks so sparkly...I am saving these beauties for one of my Christmas trees.

I just "Love" old ornaments...I bet you know where this will be going!

This little tin is so precious. It is kinda hard to find them in pink.

While visiting a local "Junkin" store Alley Cat Mercantile I found these old pictures someone had made. Very interesting....I bought the one with the mirror!
I should have taken a better picture so you could have seen all of them.

*The Roses are in Bloom*

Oh my gosh, my roses have gone CRAZY! They are getting so tall and are blooming everywhere. Their pink blush color is just beautiful! We have them planted on each
side of our front porch. I am so glad they add color to the place...which is a good thing. It is kinda drab out here, you see a lot of mesquite trees.
I remember my grandmother having a lot of rose bushes, when I was little girl. It gets pretty hot around here in the summer and those darn things will live through anything!

And yep, I am at it again! Never to late to start collecting trinkets for this upcoming Holiday season. I am already thinking.....Bottle brush trees?

Picking up a few things while Junkin'

We have a terrific store downtown here called Alley Cats Mercantile. They are a true vintage and junk store...You would just love it!
They have a little something for everyone. I purchased this old radio cabinet for $45. Someone had already given it a fresh coat of "old" paint and burlap.
Hey, you cant get much better than that! We'll keep it just the way it is.

Then...I think I have told everyone this before... Once a month, I drive 60 miles away to a town called Jacksboro for a visit to the nursing home. We always take a few bags of goodies...cookies, sodas and such. I was driving right through town and "Low and Behold" ....SLOW DOWN! STOP! There was a new store! Yea! I turned the bus around and made a beeline! It was called Vintage Vault. There were so many things to "Ooh and ahh" over. I was in a big hurry that day and snatched
up this box of mix matched old jewelry and was on my way. I know it looks like junk to some, but, to was a treasure! I cant wait to go back for another visit!
