Junkin' therapy.....

Images for you ~

Yeah, just when I get everything unpacked and crammed where
I can only HOPE that I remember....
I need a little junkin' therapy!

It's known to be for the soul and lift your spirit!!!
Sometimes when all of my little finds are piled up at the register,
I just stop and look at it ~
It really looks like I found it all at the dump!!!
But it's not trash to me, not one. little. bit.

Look at these little girl shoes, and just get a load of the toes!

A few pieces of old lace, a couple of old baby pics and a very old hinged tin ~

And you know I can't pass up another jar of creamy buttons, right?

This old grandaddy was given to me by a sweet friend....

Well, I found granny this weekend!!!
What am I going to do with them?
I don't know but I just thought they needed to be together.

An old receipt book filled with stubs and incredible handwriting.
Can you believe how old it is??? 1894

A plastic bag filled with loose beads and pearls.
They look wonderful in an old jar ~

The babies ~

More old German trim speckled beautifully from age.

I also found this wonderful box that needs to be altered, don't you think?

A couple of old drawers....
A three bucks each, they had to come home with me!

This small hanging box with four compartments is so neat ~
I think it needs to have speckled eggs and other elements of nature in
each little section!

That's about everything and all I have to say about that is:

Hello. My name is Dawn. I am a hoa....COLLECTOR of cool old junk!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday and last day of February dear friends ~
hugs and love,

Small signs ~

One of the wonderful things about living in this old house
are the plantings that surround it....
I can't imagine how long they've been here
because the house was built in 1925 ~
I love the old shrubbery that's out front too...
an old hydrangea bush, a few nandina shrubs ~
and these sweet daffodils that must be excited about spring
because they've already bloomed!!

So what have I been up to?
Since our Shop Fun Soap website is under re-construction
and we need to be selling the beautiful soap online....
I've created a blog store where everyone can buy
the gorgeous egg soap....
or shell soap
or lavender soap!!!

It's really a simple store ~
plus no matter what you order
the shipping cost is only 4.99 in the US!!!
If you'd like to take a look....

I hope you are doing so good and
that you have a wonderful Thursday precious friends ~
hugs and love,

Speckled eggs bring thoughts of Spring ~

I printed these beautiful antique images
onto old sheet music a long time ago...
you probably even remember seeing them in a few of my projects!

I thought I'd offer them to you again ~
don't the eggs remind you of Spring??

How do you save them?
Simply left click on the image...
then you can probably left click it again to bring
it up to it's full size.
Next, right click on the largest size and a tiny menu
will pop up. While holding down the button
slide down and select "Save Image As" or 
something that sounds similar.
Then you simply find a folder on your
computer to save it in!
Just remember the name of the folder so
you can find it again if you'd like to print it :)

We're still knee deep in wonderful orders for these speckled eggs!!
If you have a shop and would like wholesale pricing, simply email me....
or if you would like to order retail, please let me know too!

Emily Dickinson

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

 We're already have buds pop out on our shrubbery and
even have a few daffodils blooming!!!
It's coming soon :)

Wishing you a great Tuesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Simple things can bring back the best memories ~

We had a wonderful weekend!!!
The temps have been milder here in GA
and it just seems to make you want to get out from under
your cozy blanket and do stuff!

We were able to go junkin' for a little while Saturday
(the photo in my last post is one of my finds!)
and I bought a really neat fire pit.
We LOVED using it
Sunday afternoon and evening.

Isn't it amazing how something as simple as a campfire
can bring back great childhood memories?
We were BIG campers when I was a kid ~
my family and I loved camping!
Just the smell of the fire brought everything back.....

I found a few old photos that I love and want to share again ~

Beautiful French documents for you too:

I wanted to remind you that Artful Pages is now in SESSION!!!
If you'd like to join in the fun....just click the button below ~
Four amazing artists are sharing their wonderful techniques and projects.....

I also wanted to share a few sweet photos baby Clara with you too ~
My son Brent and his wife Emily both love fishing!!!!
Well, we had such a beautiful weekend here in Georgia
so Brent and Emily took little Clara out for her very first fishing trip!

Can you believe this little angel???
No. fear.whatsoever...
Touching the fish and everything!

And on the way home....she's all tuckered out!

I hope you have a wonderful Monday dear friends!
hugs and love,

I've been stung....

Apparently I've been attacked by a rogue commenter spreading maliciousness ~
I'm sorry if you've received a strange code while browsing my blog....
Now I've had to add moderation to comments ~

It's sad that folks who are so terribly unhappy have to spread
their unhappiness around.

Wishing you a peaceful and very happy Sunday precious friends!
hugs and love,
