A thrifty re-do, and a few new treasures....

 I found this lovely graniteware bucket w/lid at my favorite thrift store
up the road......wait till you see the tea pot I found there too!

I love that all the flowers are in bloom right now I'll show
the garden next...
 Here is my yard sale owls I found a few weeks ago.....
They just needed a lift though.
 So I sprayed them this morning and I love the way they turned out....

 I found these paper lanterns at the same yard sale for a $1

 Love the colors....
 I also found this fun polkadot teapot.....
 I was so excited to win a giveaway over at
 The post cards were so beautiful....
 I loved the journals...
thank you again.
and here is a little update on our new addition
Mr. Jerry has won his big brother over, George loves him.....
he even shares his Mommy.
