I was gone again!

Hello Everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend!
I have been gone again, I had to go back to my house to get
my clothes and stuff I left there when I went out to Oregon.
I didn't get back down there because after I broke down, we
came back up here after the van was fixed. I thought I would
take a few minutes to show you all the things I got recently at
sales and shops.

I got this Rowe Pottery Pie dish for $3 at a yard sale
yesterday, the date on the back says 1988 also that it
is handcrafted. I thought that was a good price!

We bought this dresser and stand for $50....
The dresser also has a mirror in the house, I
didn't really care for the mirror, but will see
how it looks after I get it painted. I thought
I would paint them all black and put a new
shade on the stand to put by hubby's side of
the bed so he can put some of his books in
in the bottom. The bedroom is decorated
kind of Victorian and I would like to change it
over to a more "Prim" look. I know I don't have
time now to paint the bedroom before it gets cold,
but I did find a quilt in a shop in Mineola, TX that
I like. I will buy that when I go back down and then
decide on a paint color for the room. I have too much
furniture in the room, so I thought I would take the
entertainment center out and put the TV on the

I had a picture of some stuff I bought at Goodwill
and some shops, but I was moving the picture down
and it is gone, so I will put it back on tomorrow.

I guess I better get back to work, I have lots to
do, besides that I want to catch up on the other blogs,
I sure miss it when I leave home. Yup, I am addicted!

Until next time~

  1. I missed you! I almost sent out an SOS....:D Really, I was a little worried. But, it makes sense not to tell anyone you aren't home.
    Great finds!
    Anyway, glad you are back and doing fine!!!

  2. Great seeing you back in blogland. I am happy to hear that you are ok. I really like the dresser. Are you planning on re-doing it?

    Have a great week,


  3. There you are!
    I love the items you found...and yes! That is a great price for Rowe Pottery!
    I can not wait to see your redos.
    Have a wonderful week!


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
