Where did June go??

I bought this white frame at an antique shop and still haven't decided what to do with it. I do have a few ideas though.


Found a perfect size vintage lace tablecloth for the dining room.

I have looked at samples of new counter tops for our kitchen for way over a month and still haven't made a decision. Never had trouble making decisions before now. The problem is that there are too many choices.

Yes I bought another cloche at the French Market.

Jack doesn't seem to have any trouble with frames or counter tops. However, I will be needing a new couch soon! What can I say, they really are family members.

Mall of America

Jeff and I , our son and his family, drove last week-end to the Twin Cities to visit the "Mall of America".  Now I live at the "Poor Farm". They had a big Nordstrom's there and I did some damage.


Inside the middle of the mall is an amusement park with big big rides.


There I am,on the top with my legs swinging in the air.....just kidding. No way in --- would I go on this ride.

But I did go on the roller coaster twice with my granddaughter. I went to the chiropractor twice this week. I feel a little better. He said about a dozen more visits before I can clean or do laundry. Tee Hee

We also went to the Twins/Ranger game. My grandson had his picture taken with Josh Hamilton. He was thrilled.

I asked my husband if he wanted to meet "Dora and Sponge Bob" or stay with the stroller?  His answer was all over his face. Have a great week everybody.

Whats Happening

Finally did the spring cleaning in the dining room and living room. Washed all the windows and bought new sheers.



Lots of rain lately (like the last three months) and flowers blooming in the yard.



My friend, Kathy, made me this awesome bracelet for my birthday. She also made this adorable tag. You can visit her at www.aspectacularmess.Plus she sells her stuff on etsy.

Saturday was the Kane County Flea Market. It's  the first Saturday and Sunday of every month. It was a very warm walk around the booths on Saturday. But it's better than rain. I found a home made Nantucket basket. I made one of these several years ago. The reed is so small and it kills your finger tips to fit them all tight. So buying one was much easier. Also found this white with blue trim pitcher.

 I"m still in my cross stitch faze. I am loving it! I've done several towels and a runner plus a pillow sham.




My daughter gave me this vintage vase for my birthday on Sunday. I turned 60.......yikes!  That was a very fast 60 years.  I received so many nice gifts from my family and friends. The tea cup and tea from Teavana is awesome. I have made several cups today.

 My friend knows I love birds. Isn't this the sweetest pair?? I also received gift cards,a rose plant, clothes, a Vera Bradley purse and wallet, a bird bath, clear glass mugs, sandals, and a Life Application Bible. It was all wonderful, I am truly blessed. Thank you everybody.
