In the heat of things

Ending July, nearing August, Hot ,Hot, Hot..... It has been so scorching hot here in Arkansas. Flowers are not doing to good no matter what efforts are made. We have green grass still as we have been getting a few good showers off and on, but , the garden suffers most. I love to go out and thrift shop, but it seems people are to hot to bargain. I did manage to get some great pieces from an old piano... The front board that you set your music on when ready to play, this would make a great piece for painting on, if i only knew how to paint. i all so got the wonderful architectural pieces , which were the legs.. A few other pieces as well. we took tha piano apart in the bed of a truck, then we hoisted it up like a deer and butcherd it. I will post some of the pieces when i get a chance. But i do have two of the great pieces that i can show you.. I will add the pictures in my blog after the post, as it dont want to add photos here for some reason.

There was a rainbow at the end of the storm

We went out to the flea market to look for some baby chicks.. We looked around of course at other things as well. There realy was not much to look at.. Then we came up on a table of boxes with stuff in them.. I looked in and my heart leaped.. The man was selling boxes of lace, vintage, new, crocheted, ect... He had bought out a womans fabric and notions store.. I got so many great pieces, and jars of vintage buttons.. Mother of pearl, and some other types i am not sure about.. there is a pair of sissors with four finger holes.. I bought a large tin that had many different kinds and colors of ric rac... tiny tiny ric rac, and other sweet colors ... The man said he had two truck loads of fabric as well , that he had not been able to bring that day... I also bought some great vintage books on makeing hats, a vintage needle work book. and others i can't recall since they are not here with me at the time i am writeing this. Any way i was happy with the findings and despite the rain I did find my pot of gold..

July 1st Already

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL OF YOU !!! Just in case i get busy and can't say it on Friday.. We have been very busy around the house while sweety is on vacation. We have decided to get some chickens and rabbits, since food prices and gas are just going through the roof. We will put back things each week to store up for hard times surely to be ahead. We worked all day for the past three days puttin' up a chicken fence and and setting up the hens nest and feeders and such. NOw i dont know how much it is going to cost to buy some hens ready to lay eggs already, but baby chicks are about 1.50 and take about 4 to 5 months to lay eggs.. I want some closer to laying then 5 months.. So we will go to the flea market saturday huntin chickens.. lol... Please check out the photos below of my vintage heart shaped Jewelery box i found at goodwill and revamped.. It is Shabby wonderful..... Check out my website for a few new items in a few days as i get the chance to update some..
