A little bit of this, a little bit of that


He's our final collection of googly-eyed critters. Now to find new homes for them...


This is the state of part of our basement. We found termites and carpenter ants in the rough-hewn boards that were attached to the cement walls. Down they came and out went the old carpet too. Now we (read dh) are left to clean it all up, use some sort of dry-lock paint and go from there. The plan is to use it as a playroom but I'm considering making it my studio. Hmmmm.


I got to go to garage sales and to lunch with my mom last Friday. She and my dad are heading back to Florida soon and this was, unbelievably, our first outing of the year. above are my best finds -- two olive green table runners, a Julia Child French cookbook, orange enamel picnic plates with wicker holders and a hand chopper.

Love this and that, thrify fun, crafty goodness and all the potential of a new space! I also love your offer to send me maple leaves; it's the thought that counts, and I am very thankful. I was thinking: Gee, if only she could send us spare snow in January! That would be something!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I loved coming to read yours. The pic, I assume is of Lake George brings back memories. I worked one summer in Lake George.. I think the place was called Word of Life. I remember sneaking off with other teens to Lake George one morning for a nice swim 'with the boys'. lol Fun times. Love the things you found in your garage saling. Are the orange plates 'melamine/melmac'? I'm jealous! I always love a good find! Love your blog, I'm adding it to my list if that is okay...
