Saturday News

Busy week! Mother was moved to a rehab facility but will most likely be coming home Tuesday. I know she'll be glad to get home.
I've been sort of gun shy to post this news because of the last time, but the papers have been signed and I am now a proud owner of this beautiful car!

It's a 2013 Nissan Murano. Never thought I would ever own a car made in Japan, but I love it! It's got so many features that it's like learning how to use a 'smart phone'!
Went to a few yard sales yesterday and today. More hands for my collection $1 each....
 Candle holders ...holder broke on lady.... $1 each. Actually I got the lady for free because the seller accidentally broke her hand when she was wrapping newspaper around her. Gorilla Glue works wonders!
 Parakeets $1...........
 Avon bottle for Pam's collection $1.....should have been 50 cents since he's missing an eye!
 Another Scrabble game $1.....just want the tiles.....
 Box of silk greenery $1........
 This is why I wanted it...............
A cute camper birdhouse $1.....
Got news the other day that my new grandbaby is to be born via C-section next Thursday! Mom Holly has been put on bed-rest. So excited! Hope it's a girl!

Wild and crazy weekend!

Well, not that crazy but definitely a fun weekend. I went with Pam and her husband and son to their mountain cabin in Crumpler, NC. This weekend was the annual antique fair in West Jefferson. What fun!

We even got to see "The Blues Brothers"!

The crowd loved them!

Several antique stores also....
I love how they use pallets for walls and shelves!
Look at these "crows"!

Great idea for using handkerchiefs....
Loved these....
Weather was great! Temperature around 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon...
Beautiful views from the porch....

Ed, Pam's husband, was bush-hogging....
Pam's beautiful flowers....



We went for a little drive and stopped at the barn across from Ed's home place. His sister still lives there. This barn and part of the land belongs to Ed.





Wouldn't you just love to ramble through this?
 Ed's dad used to store tobacco in this barn and you can see some still hanging from the rafters.
Across from this barn is another they call "the grainery"...
 This gazebo is in Ed's parent's yard.....
....along with this old glider....
The view from Ed's parent's yard.....
Here's my goodies I bought this weekend....
How do you like my "goat"?
 Got this for Justin....
 I was able to get $6 knocked off of these beauties....
 Primitive rabbit....
 This church is a music box! The roof lifts off .....


 Three trinket boxes....
 ...and an orphan salt/pepper lady....
 Ceramic parakeet....
Had a great time but glad to be back home!
