Weekend Stuff

Good Monday morning to you all! We had a very busy and productive weekend here at the Johnson house. The mysterious sun decided to make an appearance so lots of outdoor activities were on the agenda.

On Saturday, I helped my main squeeze work in the yard a bit. We are currently in the process of trying to clean up the jungle that is our backyard.  Here is the result after hauling a huge pile of bark chips to cover the mud that was there.

IMAG0252 Very park like now. So nice that I sat back there and ate my delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich lunch. And in case you’re wondering, that fountain is crooked. Just one of the many projects we still need to work on.

After working in the yard a bit, I started to tackle some sanding/painting projects. I even got help from one of my favorite little guys in the whole world.

I could do a whole post on this awesome boy.

Can you see some of the stuff behind me. Consider that a Farm Chicks sneak peek.

Here’s what I was working on Sunday.IMAG0373

I also managed to make a trip to the flea market and picked up lots of goodies.

Cute little brown cabinet with 8 drawers, two really cute vintage purses, jar of buttons, glasses case and pocket watch.

Little plastic boxes, tiny perfume bottles, necklaces, a buckle, rhinestone bracelet, a pretty brooch, hair combs, garter and handcuffs. I couldn’t pass them up. They are pretty cool.

Oops, sorry, this picture is kinda blurry. Still using my phone camera as my regular camera is still missing in action. Here you can see I got quite a few bits and pieces including three vintage watches, some bling, another buckle and some little metal spoons. I am very hungry for more vintage bling because I put a huge dent in my stash when I made these last week.

Just a few of my newest blingy belt buckles.

Now you can see why I need more bling. I used a lot on these cuties.

So, there you have it. My busy, but productive weekend. I’ll have more peeks to share in the next few weeks. Lots of projects almost done and many more to start, but I’m feeling good. Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

I think I now know where all the cute furniture in the PNW is currently residing. :-) And that buckle with the giant rhinestone starburst is *awesome*!
