Newest Treasures!

Quack- quack! Look girls! I finally have a 'fill with hot water' vintage baby bowl! Does anyone know a better name? My antique store owner friend gave this to me for $7.00! Woo-hoo! Thank you so much Marilyn!

I also picked up this cute little tin for my kitchen. I had a hard time photographing *it*.
I just keep adding more and more poultry to the farm- don't I? And I don't even have to clean up after these!

We do plan on getting real laying hens this Spring but the cool and rainy weather has slowed down our motivation big time! Blaaaaaah!

Girls, I'm thrilled to say that I've lost 8 pounds since I began my weight loss journey!
I wasn't sure if I could lose anything until we got the pool up so I'm tickled! I've worked really hard but it's been so worth it! You can do it too- you just have to WANT to!

After my first 5 pounds, I rewarded my self with a new bathing suit top and for my second 5 pounds, I get to have my hair cut professionally! I generally cut my own hair until it's so messed up that I can't stand it anymore! Ha! It helps me to have little rewards dangling in front of me so for the 5 pounds after that- I'll get new jeans!! Can you tell I'm excited?

Hope everyone has a great day!

True Blue

Hello girls! Here's proof that the Pink and Red girl can do blue, too! My living room is in Blue for the boys. This is my $30.00 Goodwill find Shabby Chic book case which does double duty as a china hutch! I recently put all my blue dishes on it in the living room. I'm only showing you this one shelf but I'll show you the others when they are done. On this shelf we have antique Currier and Ives, vintage Alpine and modern Cath Kidston. Does it work?

*Dollar Tree Display Easels:

Every time I go to the Dollar Tree, I pick up some of these! They come in three sizes. I want to spray paint them White some day. I'm terrible about painting. I have 2 boxes full of "to paint" items!

Trouble Commenting?

When blogger sends you through the sign in hoops, uncheck the "keep me signed in " box and you'll stay signed in! Go figure! Poor blogger... So many tech problems lately. I'm glad I'm not in charge!


Have a great week end!

It's True!

It's true! You'll drink more water if you use a vintage cherries drinking glass! (My most recent find.)

Have a great day!

Let's Hop Inside My hutch

Have you ever wished you were very small?

Let's pretend that we are- and hop inside my old built in hutch! This hutch is in my dinning room by a big window! It's my favorite room of the house! (Cake made by Queenie from Queenie's Vintage Finds and Treasures!)

There are no country club rules to obey inside my hutch but everything displayed here must be either pretty or cute! (Cup cake made by Twyla from Two crazy Crafters!)

It doesn't matter if it's in style or if it obeys design rules. If I like it- in it goes!

It only has to make me feel happy when I sit at the table and look. (Forget Me Nots from Sandy O at Gammie's Little House.)

I've discovered that my hutch is a great place to display many of my vintage cards! (Some of them are from Tina @ Sweetina Vintage)

Teddy planter was a give away win from Sonya @ Dime Store Thrift) I mix and match styles to a shameless degree! (Star fish made by M from Tales From An OC Cottage!)

Everything in here was gifted, thrifted or crafted! (There are cards in here from Jackie @ once Upon A Fairyland.)

Here's my kitty. She's dieting with me. (I lost 4 pounds this week but she didn't lose any!)

There are also cards in here from Carol @ Old Glory Cottage and Elizabeth from Creative Breathing! I even hung some card fronts on the back wall since I'm not crazy about that beige color!

I will probably tweak these shelves daily. Feathering is what it's all about for me!

Are you tired yet? ☺

Thank you all for joining me in my hutch! It's a happy place to be!

I your comments and I hope you all have a happy day!

The Cutie Pie Poultry Pageant

I finally have some poultry on the farm! Mr. rooster thinks he's the cutest and I'm a bit inclined to agree.

But Mr. Duck is really cute, too!

Couldn't you just kiss those duck lips!

Here they are together bickering over who is the cutest! Men!

They now both reside on my happy shelves in my kitchen where they fit right in. I'll have to get a new picture to show you.

These sweeties came from my favoritest antique shop- Back Porch Treasures!

Happy Rednesday! Link up with us at Sue's over at It's A Very Cherry World!

Happy Saturday to all my Pink lovin' girls! Pink or Red is all I seem to post anymore but I really do have a house full of Blue! This is my newest antique shop find- a pretty little orphan girl. She needed me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

My Red Giveaway Goodies From Carol!

This kitty is so adorable that I just had to use her again!

I recently won a give away from Carol at Old Glory Cottage and it was full of Red goodness!

This is itty bitty!

Thank you so much, Carol for all this Red vintage fun!

If you've never checked out the other Rednesday posts, go by Sue's at It's A Very Cherry World to see!

Knock Knock!

Who's there? My crystal door knob which was upstairs on the spare room door... but now welcomes you into my craft room.

And then there's this more rustic gem which adorns my back door.

I took the stuffing out of the key hole so you could see through it. It sure lets in a lot of cold air in the Winter!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! This day starts my week end and I have a hot date with my man!
