Thankful for Memorial Day

Just a little pause to be thankful for those in the past who served in our military so that we can have the freedoms we have today.  Many thanks too for those who are serving still...and for the sacrifices they and their families make to defend the freedoms we still have.

Blue and White Jewelry Embellished Clock

I finished embellishing a clock with vintage jewelry bits--in white and many complimentary shades of blue.  It actually seems like it has a coastal look to it, but I'm sure it would look nice with many different decors.  I've listed it in my Etsy shop.  Hope you like it!

Pretty Dishes for a Song

I found these two dishes this past Friday at a thrift shop.  I've been looking around for a pretty serving dish (like for mashed potatoes) but haven't wanted to spend much.  Well, these two dishes were only around $3.50--for both of them--so they were definitely worth the money.  The shapes, gold accents, cut work, and floral patterns are beautiful.   Hope you like them too!

The Best are Hand Picked

We have been keeping our eyes out for violets--Wisconsin's state flower.  Usually they arrive earlier, but this year with a delayed spring they have only just arrived.  My son found the first ones--these four--and picked them for me.  Isn't that sweet?!  Aren't they lovely!
