Thrifty Flea Finds and Looking Ahead!


The family has gone but not the memories of a fun filled weekend
 with the most gorgeous weather ever
 on this just past Memorial Day weekend. 


...cleaning up just a bit and getting ready
 to move on to the next adventure!


...which just happens to be...


...a girl's only weekend with Paula
 and hopefully other special girlfriends in Connecticut!


Looking forward to girl talk, shopping, eating
 and maybe even watching a favorite old movie...
...together!


Can't wait to see Paula's gorgeous gardens...
...things are really blooming now!


I will be sure to bring the camera
 to capture some pretty pics to share.


All these photos today are of a few of the things I have picked up
 at thrift stores, yard sales, church sales, etc.
 over the last few months.


Some things are just plain useful...





Some are old, some interesting...
Some are beautiful.

These items are all those that I actually got to photograph
 before I came up to the lake...

I have been so busy having fun with family that I haven't shared these with you before...and there's so much more.

Getting some things ready to sell.
(feel free to email if there is anything of interest).


Hope you all had a fun weekend...
...here we are already at Tuesday!

Wishing you a productive and joy filled week...
:)
