It is so hot outside, so come on in and have a glass of tea. It is the sweet tea with pineapple and is so refreshing. Lets just sit and enjoy the coolness in here, have a glass of tea and be grateful for central air.lol Anyway I am so happy you came Through My Back Door this evening. I'll tell you about the Worlds Longest Yard Sale yesterday. One word can describe it for me. HOT! It was so hot. My daughter, son in law and I went. You know my s-i-l had fallen off a barn and has cracked ribs and is still sore. What you don't know is I have Plantars Faciitis in my foot along with a painful heel spur. So Deb was a little skeptical about going with two not so healthy , quote, unquote, people. Well I'll have you know Michael and I did fine. I walked as well as any body. So there.lol But when I got home last night, wow. My foot hurt. We went out to dinner for my Grandson Curts birthday, and by the time it was over Michael could hardly move and I couldn't walk. Oh well, back to the yardsale. It was wonderful as always. So many goodies, it would be nice to have bottomless pockets. I only bought two things. I went with a certain amount of money and wasn't going over it. (I did take a check with me though. You gotta' cover your bases). I have been looking for about four years for just the right spice cupboard and found it yesterday. This is it.
It actually has old bittersweet paint on it, although it looks more mustard in the picture. The drawers are all sawtooth, and did you notice the pulls? I bet some little man had this in his workshop because of them. I love it. I paid a little more than I wanted to, but it was love at first sight.lol I also found this.
It too was love at first sight.Most of you know if I don't love it, I don't want it. I cannot wait to see this decorated for fall and Christmas. Michael collects certain tools and he found a bunch. Deb bought some pewter, a crock, and a mortar and pestle. They also bought the most gorgeous dry sink. We were in Michael's Flex so they just paid for it and will go back in the truck after it. I will post a picture next time. It is beautiful.
Shirlee over at Farmhouse Ponderings did a give away. She also did a runner up, which I won. The box came today and I was so excited.
It even had a card with the directions on how to open.
Isn't this beautiful? I love it. I have already found a place to put it.
On my dresser! You would think this was enough, but there is more. A few blogs ago I mentioned being addicted to Deb Peterson pinkeeps. Shirlee found her and got me this.
Can you believe it? Now here is something Shirlee doesn't know. I got so excited opening and placing I forgot to open my card! In the mean time I had e-mailed her to let her know it had arrived safely. I didn't mention or thank her for all she went through to get this, because I didn't know until later! Can you say excited? I was! Am!
Here is where I put it. I love it.
Don't you? Go read her blog if you can. Thank you so much Shirlee I will enjoy these so much for a long time to come.You have no idea how I appreciate all you did.
Well thanks you all for coming Through My Back Door today where life is good.
ps Happy Birthday Curt. I am so proud of you and love you bunches. (he is twenty four, in pharmacy school and engaged to be married next summer to the sweetest girl. More about that later)
