Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Junk Party ....

When we went to Berea, Kentucky, this past week, on a gal-pal jaunt, we hit several antique/junque shops. I was so happy to find some items that would be fun to own, and take home. I spent less than ten dollars for all of these items.

This little basket was in perfect condition, and I know that it's old because of the rim. I've seen this type at plenty of auctions.

Daughter April collects cookie cutters, and lil' Emmy loves to work side by side in the kitchen with her mommy. Emmy loves cats and this old cat cutter with a little wooden knob will make it easier for her to make her cut-outs!


This jar is a gem. It has a non perfect shape, which endears itself to me. (Sorta like my shape!)

Of course the chocolate is legal...uhm, at least I think it is, and if it isn't...heck, we only live once, don't we?

A JUNK PARTY???? I'm going to have to check it out...thanks for sharing! Hmmm...and to tie a few posts together here with a comment...do they have swimsuits to fit your lil new (old) blue jar? If so...then I'll take one...exactly what I'd need for this lil (yeah right) butt! Might as well make it polka-dot...perhaps I can be famous as hilda!

Y'all come back now...
