A Bull, Wisdom, and a side of beans, Happy Weekend!

 A girlfriend found these over in Seldovia......
There little faces are so sweet.
They are going to be super cheery to look at going into winter!
 I found this fabulous vintage vase yesterday at a yard sale...
perfect for Halloween coming up!
 At the same sale I spotted this foot stool made out of old bean cans
the man gave it to me, I think he was shocked that I wanted it!
I think its fabulous....
 as if this post had a theme......I loved this oil I found also
they had cut the canvas and framed it, but look at the initials....
I wish they were a little smaller.
 and for my bull, this beauty was in the backyard
I hope he hides out long enough through hunting season.....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
if you have time pop over to my friend Linda's
to check out her lovely giveaway!

Take care, Heidi

  3. What's that little whippersnapper puppy doing on your fabulous vintage sofa???Or should I say, rather large puppy - he's going to be BIG judging by those long legs! Lovely treasures as always, my Girl. Well done. Lots of cowboy boots around these parts at the moment....but only on TV....Dallas is back!!!Hope you're having a great weekend, Heidi. xxx

  4. 'been 9night}swimming over to yours, heid! peyouh, dog tired... ha ha ha...

    i've had to look up seldovia! i thought it sounded something like transylvania (yeah, well, it would for me), and i thought, is this place real? yep! i now know!

    old bean cans? so how come it looks so stunning? do tell me this, i'm swooning here.

    surrounded by bulls... ha, over here it's rather hitler and braun-you-know-who, but they keep quiet, so i am not complaining...

    cheers, i will. enjoy the weekend. a little grafting tomorrow, but i'm up for it, because september is here, and that is SO my month!...


  5. Hello Heidi!
    I like your owls and they're so in fashion at the moment! I also like the foot stool, what an original idea!
    A bull in the backyard?? I get intimidated just at the sight of stray dogs! :)

    Enjoy your weekend!
