1st birthday yumminess

I will share some cuteness with everyone. The Sweet One just had a birthday and wanted to share some smiles. You can trust me to share that those attentive eyes are looking at that camera and figuring just how to get it out of Mommy's hands AND how to use it.
And since you stopped by for a chit chat, she'll share some of her mooshed cupcake with you!
Thanks for coming to the party and hope to see ya soon!

Lurking pays off

I was lurking around blogland today and came across the neatest blog. I don't do scrapbooking per se, but you wouldn't know it by looking at my supplies! I have a LOT and constantly accumulate more...anyway...I digress here to send you to Keepsakes by Melissa. She has a lot of inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. Enjoy.

P.S. - I forgot the most important part! There is an awesome giveaway also!

Good Finds

My dear Sister in Law came for a visit and we toured the area for some general antiquing. We both found some great deals at an antiques mall. I fell in love with the cruet set. The silver base is really nice and I am going to find some new liners or something to fit in them. The original bottles are chipped and the stoppers aren't original, but they are still useable in another life. It will eventually hold smalls on my worktable.
The black amethyst pieces were my horray, happy dance purchase. All of them were super good prices and I found them all in the same mall. That is a real shocker, because these pieces are getting harder for me to find . The silver ice bucket was a real score also and the original glass liner was still intact and in terrific condition. I actually may use it too. I love the little sugar bowl and I think I have a small juice pitcher that will match it. Now to find the creamer...another junkin trip around the corner perhaps!
As I was trying to escape without another handful of stuff, I spied this little vinegar and oil set. It tied my white milk glass collection and my black amethyst together quite well. We definitely closed down the place that afternoon and had a terrific time.

Way back last fall, I was soooo lucky and I won a contest at Junk Camp. This little beauty was my entry for re-purposed goodies. Ki Nausauer awarded me a gift certificate to spend at Junk Revolution. After much nail-biting and hem-hawing, I could no longer resist the messenger bag and the book, Decorating Junk Market Style.
I also picked up a typewriter key with my initial that I forgot to put in the quit looking at the photo with your magnifying glass!! I love it and intend to add a couple of other goodies to the necklace to keep it company. OH,oh,oh...and I also purchased one of the t-shirts. I almost forgot about that one only because I am sitting here wearing it as I type. DOH!! It is so soft and comfy. Loving it tons.
It just goes to never know when LUCK will cross your path. Ain't I the lucky dog. You must jump over to visit Ki at her blog and check things out.
