Just been LAZY

Hi There

Well I don't have any excuse for not posting sooner, just lazy. I have been trying to get things cleaned out like excess vintage books. I have cleaned out cabinets like under the TV wall cabinet  and in my office and in the studio where I have old vintage books stashed. Now I have piles of books in every room .LOL  So I am down sizing thinking I might sell my house and go to a condo nothing in stone yet just thinking out loud.

I know there is no way I can move 20 years of collecting into a smaller house. My dream would be move down to Lake Ozarks on the water with a boat dock and a cruiser LOL  However would I have enough company to keep me busy?




I have been cleaning the silver for the Thanksgiving & Christmas turkey , long ways to go my pitchers are just black , however the silver butter dish isn't bad. This is my turkey cover and when I purchased it I thought it would cover a 20 lb turkey, however I could only get a 12 lb turkey under it . I just love vintage silver


Also while in the studio I seen my little vintage soft feather tree with my vintage glass ornaments on it so brought it into the kitchen already LOL I really think it's too soon but what the heck . I just wanted to reminisce about where I bought it and what estate sale I bought the entire box of old glass balls and the old garland . My friend and I call it  the Martha garland because once on her show she was flaunting all her beautiful vintage Christmas items and had some old garland like mine.






I have about 20 things to do today so must get started , look at the little rusty bell on the tree, the tree is 18 inches tall  including the little wooden base .
The sun is out today and I can work like a buss saw when the sun is out FYI  LOL, we sure had a dark rainy day Sunday so after church all I did was eat ice cream and tried to clean silver and couldn't get my new siver spary can to spray so had to take it back yesterday and get a new can  blah blah not interesting I know

I hope to come up with a more fun post soon . Hope you all eat lots of good things for the holiday

  1. Just sitting here with my coffee and reading blogs and had to laugh about you saying this post was "blah". It's sometimes fun just to hear about someone's "normal" day and see the photos. Your silver is beautiful!
    Have a happy day!

  2. I do not like moving either. Your butter dish is gorgeous. I polish exactly nothing for the holidays:}

  5. Now you know you are right in my strike zone with that gorgeous silver dome! I've been wanting one of those beauties. I call first dibs at the clear out!
    I've missed you.

  8. If you're lazy I guess I'm catatonic *winks* Seems like you're doing a lot in my world. Could you come over and polish my silver now? I HATE to do it. Lovin' that meat dome girlfriend! And your feather tree is adorable! I would probably leave it up all year. And YES I think you should wear your clips on you shoes! Why not add some bling to the ensemble? I think I'll wear mine too. *winks* Vanna

  9. Cleaning? Organizing? Oh my...I'm just the OPPOSITE!! I have so much stuff...I truly hope I don't have to ever clean it all!!
    You've done an amazing job and you deserve a boat on the water. Have a lovely cup of coffee/tea and enjoy the work you've done!!
    I hate cleaning silver (or anything else for that matter), and yours is lovely. So glad you joined me for Pearls and Lace Thursday!
    Blessings, Doni

  10. I just finished cleaning like a mad woman. .... why. I have books to sort. I have so many and that's one thing I just have to have . I told my husband , I thought when I retired I would have a maid...not become one. :):) Smiles, Susie

  11. I love your vintage fowl cover, I have one in silver too, only it's new, lol..Yeah, mine is for a 20 punder! You deserve the house you want, with the boat and all! I hate to clean, I rather cook and wash dishes...I don't like the cleaning situation, so I have a maid that comes 3 times a week. I was 60 in Oct., so that's it..my cleaning days are over! Enjoy your weekend.

  12. I'm with you. I was lazy or busy for a week. I feel guilty when I don't post. I wonder how some of these bloggers constantly put out posts... The silver is beautiful...Enjoy your Sunday.
