Sunday, June 28, 2009


I was left this after my neighbor's estate had been divided. It was made by her father to house her brand new encyclopedias. It was cool and old but lacquered ORANGE and made out of cheap pine plywood. It needed a coat of paint! My mother was shocked! I think it is darling!!

Circle the Wagons!

Last night I went to a country hoe down! At my ward (church). It was decorated real perdy!! The cows were nice!
and even let us play games w/ em!

Even the bathroom dressed up for the evening!


I saw this quote while thrifting. I loved it (not enough to buy) enough to photograph!!

Beautiful Junk!!

I requested (Did you know your library will buy most books you request? Mine does!!) this book from my library and it came in yesterday. It has already and most like will provide HOURS of viewing pleasure!! I HIGHLY suggest it!!

"What a dish!!"

I went to a yard sale today knowing FULL WELL I needed NO MORE JUNK!! Twenty five cents later...I came home w/ ALL these!!

Two ramekins (tea cups w/ out handles)! I love the color!

Two Fire King bowels! Perfect for my oatmeal and Wheat Chex in the morning!!

I got this gravy boat for my sister because I thought it matched a china set she doesn't. Still "What a dish!!"

Just a bed of Roses!!

I ran down to RC Willey today to "reselect" a new mattress!! Friends let's all PRAY it is a keeper!! I hopped over to savers for a little 'look see' before I had to come hop and jet to work. While at Savers look what I found for the million dollar "new" bed!! A flat & fitted sheet, and 2 pillow cases in my dear friend Rachel Ashwell's cute rose print!! SO CUTE!! Twelve bucks for everything! Retail at Target? $49.99!

New Stuff added to Nearly New and Co.

Fun new stuff has been added to my sister site Nearly New and CO. Go check it out and buy something for heavens sake!!!

Note to self:

When asking you hair dresser if she remembers "last time" so that she can do "exactly the same thing" it's not going to happen!!

Piles of Life!

My 96 year old friend is no longer able to live alone and so she has had to move into an assisted living center. She has been a constant in my life from childhood. Her family came last week to go through her 96 years of belongings and part w/ the un-needed and to treasure the rest!! We had an estate sale for the un-needed. How said to see a life as only piles and belongings! Good thing memories can never be piled and sold!!

Here are a few sweet tangible memories I received:

An old chest this woman's father made to store her favorite memories!

A beautiful mirror:
A beautiful (to me) broach. The kids in primary Sunday were fascinated!!

This fab Pottery Barn bed...I forget how much....but it was a good deal!!

This beautiful king head board?? MMMm...75 bucks!!

This beauty w/ glass knobs!! 75 BUCKS!!

Don't get me wrong they had some junk...but they had some good stuff too. To bad I wasn't in the market!! Maybe you are?

Vintage Junk!!

Aweeee So much better w/ a fresh coat of paint!

Look at this darling painting I got from a friend!! It needs a new frame color but it is so darling!!!

And this darling vintage "motel chair" I saw at the thrift store!! SO CUTE!!


Today I had my first facial. I feel like a new woman. It's was Callie's b-day so to celebrate we went and had every cream on the planet rubbed on our faces. It was FAB!! They didn't do any extraction which I was totally looking forward to...but I'll live!!
