Sweet Springtime

Aaaahhh.. I am becoming more blissfully aware each day that spring is upon us.

The birdsong in the air, the sun on my face, and the splash of the mud puddle when my little one bounces through the yard.  Warm, wonderful weather is upon us.


The potatoes that we planted at the end of winter have stretched their heads through the soil and into the cool, breezy wind.

Choose Joy

Yesterday, Karlee Girl had a dentist appointment.
We took the baby doll for good measure, but she was a trooper... she always is a tough cookie when it comes to doctors' offices.

We use a pediatric dentist, and they have their office saturated with kid friendly things.  There is an indoor playground, video games, etc.  They also had Barefoot Contessa on the big screen, so the wait really wasn't bad, but I couldn't help but listen to the different family dynamics in the room.

Grace in the Mundane

I've been praying about an opportunity to really share my heart... to really open up to my friends (you!)... 

I have noticed a common denominator in conversations with wives and moms.... Frustration.

Farm Girls Repurpose

Oh, y'all!  I just love it when things are re-used, instead of being tossed in a landfill!  
There is nothing cuter than an old, rusty farm find that has been repurposed....

This truck bed turned flower stand is such a cute, eye catching piece.  Even if you aren't in the farm stand business, this would be an adorable potting bench, backyard kitchen serving area, etc.  The possibilities are endless!

A Good Day!

I love to garage sale... mostly because it is something that my husband enjoys doing, too.... 

my little one doesn't really mind, either!

Today was a good garage sale day....
I found some great, gourmet coffee...

Some fun Susan Winget canisters (I have an idea for these... can't wait to share it!)

...and a FABULOUS set of Pyrex nesting bowls.... I love the turquoise color.  This is the "amish" print... one I really am drawn to.

We found several other things, like some fun vintage glasses, a compost barrel, some vintage jewelry that I'll be selling, and some yummy smelling homemade bath salts. 

I do love the pieces that we bought, and I really enjoy finding treasures that others may consider to be "junk", but mostly, I cherish the moments and giggles with the ones I love (like when my hubby didn't see the cattle guard leaving one sale, and we looked like The Dukes of Hazzard, flying through the air!).

It was a good day, indeed!

Sweet Vintage Love....

I love displaying a dress that I wore as a baby... My mama kept it all these years and gifted it to me when I had my little girl.

It sits on top of a shelf in her room.... on an iron dress form.


Coffee tastes better in a vintage cup...


And, old marbles... in a really old canning jar.... eye candy!

 What vintage pieces do you cherish in your home?
