I found a cute green wood tray with handles which I already put some vintage wallpaper on the bottom. A set of 4 candlewick like glass coasters that have roses on the bottom, a large glass jar, enamel pot, cool vintage mirror with a guilloche rose on it, silver and gold beaded garland, four tea strainers which I think will make cute ornaments on the Christmas tree. I might fill them with dried lavender and glitter them. Not sure yet. Roll of pink and white checked wallpaper, a cute little handmade barn and a pottery lamp base with flowers and a bird.
Thursday night I headed out to Joy's Holiday Sale and Open House. I took a ton of pictures so now is a good time to go get that cup of coffee or go to the bathroom, as this will take awhile. I have said in the past, I am not a very good photographer and my pictures don't do Joy's home justice. I got lots taken in the house, but I completely forgot to take any in the shop. Here they are in no special order.
On Saturday morning Isabel and I met Martha and Diane at Cindy's sale. It was so cute and of course, I forgot to take pictures. I was good and only bought a few little items. After that we all went to breakfast in our little town. Here is a picture of the four of us. I think Martha has a better one but look at the snow falling behind us. It was so lovely, but it didn't last. I had to hurry home to get ready for my daughter's first basketball game of the season. She did great and her team actually won! She was great on defense and even scored a basket. This is only her second year of playing and I'm so glad she is. She really seems to enjoy it and I think could be an excellent player. She really only plays for fun. After the game we hustled on over to the store to pick up her cake and other stuff for her 14th birthday party.
As I mentioned on a recent post, her birthday was last weekend, but since we were out of town, we postponed her "friend" birthday until this weekend. We ended up going to the mall to do a "scavenger hunt." They had to do things like take a picture of a person eating a hamburger, go to a store that sells girl stuff and buy $5.00 worth of items, etc. There were word scrambles and puzzles to figure out. They had a lot of fun doing it and it only took about an hour. After that we came home had cake and ice cream and they had a little hang out time before their parents picked them up at 10pm. One of the cool things was the items they bought on the scavenger hunt got divided up and were their prizes. But the best part was they all went home. I kind of put my foot down on sleepover birthday parties this year. I just don't want to do them anymore.
Well, that's it for now. I told you this was going to be a long one. I hope you enjoyed all the fab pictures of Joy's lovely home.
