Back in the Saddle Again!

Ok Guys! I had lunch with a gal pal today and then went thrifting with another friend. WOW! I can say that today is the first day that I really stopped and enjoyed NOT working the ole 9-5er!!!! I kept having to "retrain" my brain.....I mean.....I always spent my lunch hour looking in these places and having to hurry! I had to tell myself a hundred times today...."you have time....stop, take your time and enjoy"!!

Thought you might enjoy seeing a few of my finds!!


I found these little ribbon belts for .75 cents! I'm thinking the blue one and the solid red one will make dandy purse straps!! and the "D" rings are great for purse making!!! and Oh boy, Oh boy I loveeee those little bamboo rings! Watch for those to show up on a bag real soon!

Aren't these just the sweetest little vintage hot pan holders?

And look at these super huge wooden purse handles!! These may be on the first purse I make!! Only one problem....I MAY not be able to give this one up!!!!



I fell in loveee with this small decor shelf!! I think I will remove the metal detail and put a vintage fabric over it instead...what do you think??? I'm kinda diggin the blue paint and will probably leave it be.


Here's a pic of all of my thrift store find this week! Do you see those fabulous brown and orange placemats???? I'm thinkin' apron!!! and check out the red/yellow/navy combo placemats with red and yellow napkins! I love those! Did anyone notice the wood bread box?? and YES another chandy!! YAY!!


I can just hear Gene Autry singing the words now..."Back in the Saddle Again....out where a friend is a friend......"

I had a blast and am feeling more like myself than ever!!! I have enjoyed taking care of my family a lot more!! Yay for MOMs!!!
