Hello again! :)

It's hard to know what to post about when it's been such a long time since the last one. Seems like it should be something pretty fantastic, doesn't it? lol Oh well, I guess this'll just have to do! I'm glad to be back :)  I hope you'll say hello if you stop by! 

I had a good weekend. On Friday, I finally decided to tackle a project that I have been putting off for a long time. I've had a storage unit for about 5 years and I decided it was high time that I did something with its contents, whatever they might be! One less bill is always a welcome change too :) I took a few pictures of the bigger pieces that I haven't moved out yet, and some little ones too.

My mom gave me that green table years ago. The long filigree looking things on the floor are from my grandparents home. They were removed from the porch before it was sold and I just had to have them! I love the oak leaf and acorn design. Hmmm . . .  I wonder if that's why I have a 'thing' for that motif :) That dresser on the left has a mirrored section in the middle that flips up. It was still duct taped down from moving so I couldn't peek inside yet.

Isn't this a cute wicker table? It's a thrift store find that I'll probably end up painting. Maybe. I have to stop thinking about it now or I'll never finish this post! Oooh . . .  but it might look really cute in aqua, yeah?  lol
Note the stack of boxes against the back wall ~ I think there about 35 of them. sheesh. That dresser on the left weighs a TON, has metal casters on the feet . . .

and this is the mirror that goes with it. I really love that piece!

A few bits and pieces from my old garden.

My vintage, hooked wool rugs. I bought the bigger one at an antique mall about 5 years ago. The smaller one on top I've had for at least 25 years. Both of them need a little tlc to repair the backing but I think they're really sweet, flaws and all!
I also had a vanload of goodies that I brought home to sort through. I've actually had fun doing this (so far) because I've forgotten so much of what's there . . . it's sort of like getting new old stuff! I hope my enthusiasm will endure ~ lol

The highlight of my weekend? I got to spend some time with my adorable mom :D She was in the area for a quilt show so we got to hang out for awhile and have dinner together. It was a real treat!

Eek! Ok . . . hitting the 'publish post' button now . . . lol . . . hope it looks alright . . . bye!
