Good Saturday Morning...and I do mean early..its 1:13am here and I had my 2 hour nap on the couch..so decided to blog my day (yesterday)..I went to the christmas house for her annual July sale.(I have done this show for 2 years)..but not this year..too much happening in the last couple of months..but I do love Carolee's and Bob's sales..they have one in May, July and their regular season on black friday till the week before christmas..they scour the united states for wonderful things to sell..they also handcraft alot of their items too..I love their sense of whimsy..and I love!!! her gardens..NOTE: this is a picture heavy entry..so sit back and enjoy.;)
love this bench..;)
almost got one of those crocks down below for my rolling pins..but truly I just don't have room for one..
don't you just love these little sail boats made out of fabric and driftwood?
Rae Jean Managing the money table...she always comes over to help Carolee and Bob set up..and she puts some of her things up for sale..I purchased one of her items today.;) you will see further down..
that blue cabinet sold on the table..it was awesome..if only I had gotten there sooner..
oh I wanted this one..it was only 50 bucks..but again no room...
so here is what I got today..the table cloth came from RaeJean..it was only 2 bucks...and it has strawberries on it..go figure..the two little dolls were 4 and 5 dollars..the sailboat..yeah I had to have one for hubbys room..it was 8 dollars..the little whisk looking things were a $1.50..I am going to attach a stick and call them witch brooms for hopefully some witch dolls I will be making in the near future..gotta get back to sewing dolls again..
I love this simple little boat..and it looks great in hubbys room.;)
I also got this cute little scooter for 10 bucks and the peach basket for 8.00..I am going to stuff it with paper and then put moss on top and put my gourds in it for halloween/fall.;)
I also picked up another sunflower..only it has a shovel on the end of it and it has spoons and wooden measuring tapes on it..it was 15.00 and the 3 vintage brooms were 3.00 each..I see 3 scarecrows in my future..they will be put in the front yard..will have hubby attach a piece of wood for the arms..then scour his closets for clothes and put some funky glasses on them with other goodies.;)
so here is my rock wall that I have some of my garden art on..pretty boring anymore..but boring is nice right now..I moved all of it to the upper portion of the now ripped out and simplified front..I will put container plants here instead..probably next year..
these are the before photos..I did plant my hydranga..I love it here..
just some pictures of the garden in bloom...love the lambs ear and the purple in the right of the photo..have no idea what they are..they are all over.
okay the afters now..put the garden art all over the front..(click to enlarge to see these all better)
the little sunflower is by the hydranga now..along with some other goodies..
the little ladder and gas can..look to the left..you can see a bench..
one of my favorite little spots now..
the hopps are still growing..soon there will be hopps on these..I love how they look on the house..gives it a real cottage feel..
up our street..
right now the brooms are in the bucket in a wheelbarrow...got that wheelbarrow also at the christmas house...best 8 bucks I ever spent..I use this all the time..
put the little table cloth on the table and you see where the peach bucket is..
I put my little raggedy here for the time being..
little prim dollie on the vanity by the front door..
This is my new blogging buddy..this is tonight as I type this..she started out like this on my arm...(sorry for the wonderful shirt..sometimes I craft in my pjs..and this is what I end up with)..painted and stained..lol...does anyone else have the same look?
then she ended up like this...
and then like this..this one makes me giggle..
and last but not least..I got this cute little beach necklace today at the show..and here is a self portrait..well that is it for me..its 1:37am and I am off to bed to read for a bit..got my new country sampler that I am currently enjoying...it is raining here and will be all day..we took a walk the other night and got drenched..it felt so good though..haven't been out playing/walking in the rain since I was a kid...I finished all of the yard work on wednesday..now its time to bark..will hopefully do some of it on monday..
have a wonderful weekend...think I am going to sit inside and sew..got a few projects to get done and I am missing it..Hope I didn't bore you too much..take care and thanks for stopping by and saying hi!!!:>)
