48, married to my HS sweetheart for 24 years. We have one daughter who is 21 years old. I love spending time with my family and closest friends. I enjoy going to thrift stores and yard sales. I like to bake and cook and love collecting all kinds of cookbooks. The Hubby and I love Motocross and you'll find us watching the races at local tracks in PA on any given Sunday...

~♥ I'm Back ♥~

Hello blogging friends...I'm sorry it has been such a long time between blog posts...but, I'm back, for now and thought I'd share with all of you some of my recent thrifting purchases...there's nothing better than going on a treasure hunt...Enjoy!
A trinket dish...it's a little worn, but that is why I love it.
I am always on the lookout for things that say "Mother".  
I found this little cup to go with my Mother Plate.
A sweet little cherub...who can resist a cherub?  
A teeny tiny picture of a boy and his bunny.
A lovely scenery picture...
sure wish there wasn't a reflection.
This is hanging in my powder room and there isn't a lot of room to get a different
angle without a reflection.
Candle Holder - I actually bought two and have the other one hanging 
on the other side of the china cupboard.
And last, but not least, my favorite find...an Oak chair.  It was probably my best deal.  
I spent $4.14 on it...so happy I didn't pass it up, because I almost did!  My lovely friend,
Sue, talked me into it...so glad I listened to her.
That's it for now, friends...I'm hoping not to make so long in between visits!
Happy Sunday and Happy June 1st.

~♥Hello Blogging Friends♥~

I hope you all are doing well...I know that I have been MIA this past year, but I'm hoping that will all change with this upcoming new year.
If you haven't noticed, I am now on Instagram and if you are as well, please follow me at:
Just like many of you, I am trying to get ready for Christmas...for some reason this year it has been slow-going...the days are counting down so I'm trying my darndest to get moving.  I've been decorating the past couple of days.  I've changed some things up from what I've done in the past.  I'm hoping to get some pictures posted soon!  
This picture is from my annual Christmas Cookie Exchange 2012.  It's so much fun to get together with friends.  This is the 4th year for the 
exchange at my home.  
My daughter and I will be baking cookies this week for the upcoming exchange on 
Saturday, December 21st!

Thanks for stopping by blogging friends!

~♥ Treasure Hunting ♥~

There is nothing I enjoy more than looking for "new" treasures for my home.
I have been looking to find a desk for in my bedroom...I have a wonderful view from this window.
Last week, my Dear Friend, Sue, her Sweet Daughter, Julia, and I went to a place called
"Thrift King"...it's in Jeannette, Pennsylvania.
Click Here to See Their Website
What did I see there, but this beauty...
now granted they say, 
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." 
She has a few nicks and bruises, but don't we all?
I paid $24.42 for the desk and $24.42 for the chair (it came with an ottoman, too, 
but I have it in my bathroom).
I'm always on the lookout for something unique...and this is what I found...
The clock is made by J. Kaiser G.M.B.H
Villingen, Germany
It's pre-1930's
I wasn't sure if it would work, but I wound it up and it keeps great time.
The little bird moves back and forth...
I paid $2.12 for it.
Another item I have been looking for is a tea set.  I found this beauty as well:
She was a bit tarnished but as you can see, she shined up real pretty!
The name on it is Wm. Rogers 800.
I paid $14.41 for the Tea Pot, Sugar Bowl and Creamer.  
The tray was a previous purchase that I've had for quite a few years.

Thanks for stopping by!
