Cindy and i went to a city wide sale on sat and had a blast so will show you a couple pictures.. i have found a couple places for a couple of the treasures but trying to get most of it to the shop...
daughter Angela worked at the quilt shop on Saturday so grandbabe and i went out to sister Janas for a few hours.. it was a perfect day at the lake. im not sure why angie works at the quilt shop cuz she always comes home with a project altho i am truely grateful she has taken up the interest of quilting/sewing! and very proud of her too!

the wood bowls were mine.. but going to shop. the rest i want to keep! but will be good.....

a Couple Buys..

Friday already again... its a bit cooler today, i hope it stays this way but.. i did hear that it is suppose to be the hottest day yet in some areas.
here are a couple buys! i ran to a sale yesterday and found these beautiful bowls.. 10.00. the biggest is 12 inches diameter and they are nice and heavy! how many bowls does one person need?... these will probably go to the shop, unless i hurry and find a perfect place here for them...

this is my new/old buy! it was the aunties of George the candy shoppe man.
she ran the shoppe when i was growing up and lived above the shop. she never married, had children or pets. so this set is in wonderful condition. i was so excited to get this... once Angie and i got it into the den wow... i didn't realize how "country" i had the den. sooo have been trying to tweak some... need to get the curtains down and eventually find some drapes..or not. i love the heavy drapes with these high ceilings. the den and breakfast nook are paneled and i have never painted but maybe should!.... anyway i love this old furniture in my old house!!

  Sadie girl likes it too!
  looking at this pic.. i need to move the dishes over a bit...
any advice on painting paneling or.... a color in-put please feel free!

enjoy your day!               jody
