What a Day!

I am so glad to be home from work. I work at a large restaurant and today was a zoo. I sure hope tomorrow is a better day. I think I am going to go take a shower and do some rug hooking and try to relax tonight. I hope wherever you are and whatever you are doing there is something that will "make you smile" good night all!

My Favorite Collections

I thought I would link with and list some of my favorite collections. It is hard to narrow them down. One of my newest loves is these white pitchers. I have them all over my home. I thought about grouping them all together, but since I was cleaning up my home today I didn't want to make a mess. So I am just going to post a few.
I also have a thing for old ladders. I took a picture of a ladder and one of my other collections...Baskets....I counted and I have six ladders just in the living room alone.
Just realized that I should have cropped out the tv screen. It is very distracting. Anyway...
Here is one of the other ladders in our living room.

Old spools and the like are another collection. I never seem to have too many. lol

I am not sure exactly what these are spools, bobbins...I just know I like them.

Swans are one of my newer collections. I just think they are so pretty.

This one I found on monday at the thrift store. It is my largest swan, probably 12" long. I was so happy that I looked over the spot that it was in again, I missed it the first time thru. It was marked $1.00. Woo Who... Jackpot!
Well I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the things that make me smile. Hope you have a great night and that you take time to enjoy the things that make you smile. Lisa

God is So Good to me!

I know that there are countless ways that God is Good to me! I always try to acknowledge these events whenever possible. I realized Sunday afternoon that I had lost a diamond from my wedding ring. It was such an awful feeling because I had been out garage sale shopping and there was no way I would be able to find it....Right?...I just started looking around my house, no luck....The thought came to look in my bed. Maybe just Maybe.... Low and behold there it was. I was so thankful for the random thought that came to me..or was it random. Love it!!!

make it for monday

This is my first attempt to participate in this event. I hope that all will go well. Cross your fingers for me.

I thought I would show my cabinet in the kitchen that holds our dog food and all their treats.
We found it on the curb and brought it home. We were in my car and it would not fit in the trunk very well. My husband, who loves a challenge, put the back seats down flat, helped me rest the cabinet on the rim of the trunk, had me hold the cabinet while he climbed in the back seat, laying on his back he grabbed the cabinet and told me to get in and drive the 10 blocks or so to our home. Can you say the word "Hillbilly" I am sure we supplied our neighbors with a good laugh or two that day. But we were able to get home safely.
Next came paint. Now we have a place for all those wonderful treats for our little "kids".
