Favorite Finds


Sometimes when browsing through thrift, consignment and
antique shops, I find just the perfect thing for me.  There may be
only one like this MacKenzie~Childs tea cup and saucer,  yet
somehow I know that it needs to come home with me.




Or some old vintage frames that have texture or scalloped
edges that just beg to be painted.





Or a yard of pink toile fabric that almost matches a two pink
toile plates found on another shopping trip.  All favorite finds that
have found a new home with me and I could not be happier.

Happily Joining ~


Isn't this a strange day Bentley?  It's lightly snowing but the
sun is shining brightly.  Looks quite lovely outside, but in fact
is very cold.  Better keep your outdoor trips to a minimum.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
