Girl Friends

Hi I  took  some more  pictures of my yard sale items I keep getting out. Also (which I can't get signed into Beverly's party Pink Saturday  ???? which I was going to show off my pink shoes ,anyway.

I had forgot I had these pink tennis shoes named Girl Friends by ICON shoes.I use to covet these shoes I thought they made the most unusual shoes and I love anything out of the ordinary.


Setting on their ICON box and I couldn't get a good picture of the label with their name on it Oh well. They are a ladies 9M. Also would you believe the original price still on box $295.00 ? I know i'm crazy sometimes LOL If I see something unique and I want it , well i try to get it when it's on sale.

Here is a few more items I have out to let go off. I sold my CAKE tin and little red moon & stars lamp , thanks to some emails from bloggers.

Pink depression glass pattern Cabbage Rose butter dish and a blue Moon &Stars butter dish, a stripped Fenton vase and below a shabby chic painted divided wood table tray was used for silverware

Another lamp I am going to let go of, I love lamps and have entirely to many I will show more as we go along on this show and tell yard sale event.

Come & Get It

Hi Ya All

I am cleaning out for another yard sale and thinking what do I drag out next? I have a lot of odds and ends dishes and a couple of complete sets of dishes I am sure I won't get my price so will just  leave them in the dish cabinets LOL I also have a lot of cotton lace tablecloths and linens to move along.
Funny how I ran for 30 years getting all of this stuff in my nest and now i'm ready to move it out of the nest to bring in different items.


I am going to put my old black CAKE Tin on my etsy shop . It is 12 inches across and stands 7 inches. I used it once to carry it full of cookies to something going on , more than likely a cookie exchange 

As all of you I have been working in my flower beds trying to get it looking like spring in my yard, however my yard man doesn't know my plants from grass. He has one more chance and if anything is cut down again he is done and I am looking for a new yard man LOL you wouldn't believe what all he cut down last year.
Just venting LOL

Happy Easter

I wanted to do a quick post since it is Easter and what would Easter be without a Bunny?


This is a Bunny one of my sisters made me out of our Mother's last chenille bathrobe. Our Mother died rather sudden and us 4 kids were crushed so my sister that sews a lot took Mom's bathrobe and made us all a Bunny to remember Mom by, not that we will ever forget her but I do like my bathrobe chenille Bunny .
May God's Love touch you today and always

Finished Rhinestone Bottle

Well my booze bottle ( LOL)  is all decorated up and ready for it's first showing.I may add a little something extra however not sure just yet. This is her tiara crown that I made out of 3 rhinestone earrings and that is a belt buckle around her neck for an added piece of rhinestones which I love love love, and always have since I was a little girl when I first discovered rhinestones in my Grandma Baker's jewelry box, it was a wooden candy box not a fancy Hollywood jewelry box and I  have it now with some of her jewelry in it


Here she is setting real pretty on a cluttered work table in the studio 

I think I still need to add a choker or rhinestone necklace around her neck instead of the rhinestone belt buckle.what do you think I should do? or just leave well enough alone ? 

Then I think I'm almost finished with my rhinestone frog cuff bracelet. It was attached to a key chain when I purchased it at Michael's.
I had purchased the strand of green ribbon also to use ? just not sure yet 

Thanks for checking out my two latest projects , the before pictures are on my previous post.

Shiny Things

I have a hundred things to get done this week before Easter and I am not in the mood to get it all done, just plain tired and a little lazy LOL or plain lazy and little tired LOL
Anyway as I play today and think I need to scrub the tub and mop the kitchen before Saturday I just thought I need to play with my rhinestones a little.Company coming, my sisters
I have a large fancy bottle I want to decorate and started getting some drawers of bobbles out to pick and choose which ones i'll use.


I always show pictures before I start a project and lots times never show the finished project believe me I do finish them eventually 

I couldn't decide if I want to use the green pieces of jewelry or the old blue rhinestone, I think I'll go with the blue since it's my favorite color in the whole wide world

I stared a bracelet also today ,it's a frog with green rhinestones I seen it at Michael's yesterday and used my 40 % coupon to purchase it and a few other items . I already had a large silver cuff bracelet I have been wanting to add something to for a long time .

Ok I have to get back to finishing some laundry . I feel like I have 8 irons in the fire do you ever get over loaded? I keep thinking when I fully retire I can play every day but then I may not have as much play money LOL

 I am helping with my high school reunion for Mt Vernon Illinois Township High School and we are looking for Lola Shick, last time I talked with her she was living I think in Nebraska so if any of you know a Lola Shick from Mt Vernon Illinois let me know , thanks , I don't know her married name now

Birds on Nest

I have a couple birds on a nest dishes my Mom had. She always loved these and had several I just happen to have two of hers.
The first one is a little white bird on a nest made by Avon . Mom bought this when they first came out . Maybe 1980 ?  Do you remember? what year for sure


Then Mom had this one that one of my sisters gave her for Mother's Day one year with a matching Fenton candy dish . She really liked this one 

WE both loved the old Fenton glass. I bought both of us several pieces of Fenton Glass Vases and especially candy dishes. I have Mom's Fenton white hobnail candy dish she got for a wedding present in 1957.


This is a reproduction jadite piece. I bought it for her because she just liked it and I had a lot of the old jadite kitchen bowls etc at the time. I put salt in it and had it on my stove.


So that is the birds all in a row this morning for you all. I didn't dig very far back in the cabinets however there is more of these someplace in this house tucked away.
The sun is out today and I'm glad to be home to enjoy it . As I write this I am watching  A cardinal outside of my office window look at himself in a mirror I have in my flower bed. He loves to peck at that mirror, I guess thinking it's a  handsome guy?
