A Few Finds and Lots of Color

HA!! Finally trying to get back into blogging and my computer starts acting up today. Not sure if there is a problem with my computer or Google....all my other websites are working fine, but when I try to do anything with Google, it freezes up. I am having to use my son's computer to finish up this blog post. Since it was being so difficult, I decided to stop for a few minutes and snap some pictures of my finds and some items that I need to list on Etsy. As soon as I stepped started raining!! Maybe one of those days where I just need to go back to bed and start all over again!!

Have I ever mentioned I LOVE color. The pieces pictures above will be listed in my shop soon   

The flowerpots were purchased at a yard sale for $5....I will be keeping these at the front door!! Can't wait for the geraniums to burst into bloom!! 

Here are some finds...the the little French Bull dog belong to one of my grandmothers. I love the fact that instead of tossing him, she glued his two front legs back. Now I know where I got my gluing skills!!  

The tea cups belonged to my grandmother. I hope to participate in a little on-line tea party soon and have started looking for props. 

Venus and the oil painting were found at two local resale shops

And a beautiful ending to a little thunderstorm we had yesterday evening. But as I am typing this, it is getting VERY dark again outside...some storms are on the way!! Hope everyone stays safe.

I'm Back!

Well, it's been awhile!! I must say that I have missed blogging terribly. But things in my life had just become crazy and unfortunately, blogging got caught in the middle. Also, I was frustrated with having to log out of my current email account and use an older one, which is why I started another blog, State of Grace Goods. But Blogger just will not allow me to change the original long-in so I guess I will just have to live with it. Also, I want a new camera. I know my pictures are not stunning, or even slightly stunning. But I have decided that I will purchase a new camera soon and just try to work with the one that I have. Because, Life is too short to not do something you love just because you don't have to right tools. 
I have A LOT of catching up to do with all my blogging friends that I have missed, so I will be working on that this week. Between that, working on two furniture painting projects, some smaller projects, a mountain of laundry, kids out of school plus going out of town this weekend, it will be a busy week!! But I am excited about it!

I think it is going to take me a few post to get back into the swing of things, so please to patient with me. Things can only get better, right? 

Looking forward to reacquainting with old friends and making new ones!
