What a relief ~

Hello everyone ~ Mr. Vintage and I finally received the results of his tests ~ What a relief ~ Mr. Vintage does NOT have cancer ~ however, he will be scheduled for surgery soon to remove a part of his bowel that is riddled with diverticulitis.

He has been in pain for quite some time and it is time to move on and have this taken care of ~ Are we nervous and a little apprehensive ~ YES we are, but we will get through this~

Even though we all go through rough waters ~

We can always hope that there is smooth sailing ahead ~

The surgery is not scheduled as of yet, so Mr. Vintage and I have decided ~ yes, it is time again

to relax and go camping and enjoy each other's company ~

Enjoy the beauty of nature ~
Maybe meet a friend or two ~
Maybe find a treasure ~
or two ~ ;-)

So ~ we're planning on leaving in probably a few weeks... but you KNOW I will take you with us ~

In the meantime, it is time for the Harrow Fair this weekend and Mr. Vintage and I will take you and show you all around.  I PROMISE.

Thank you, EVERY ONE of you for your good thoughts, prayers and well wishes ~ you ARE the best

Have a wonderful week ~ See you at the Harrow Fair


No Mindy, sorry you can't go to the fair, sorry

Mommy, are you kidding me? I would behave ... oh well, I guess I'll stay at home with Scooter (sigh)..only if you promise to bring me home a hot dog.

Sunny Sunday ~

We are having such beautiful weather today.  The temp is around 75 degrees F and there is a wonderful breeze blowing.  I decided to wash the bedding ~

How could I resist?  There is just something that makes me smile when I see laundry blowing in the wind ;-)

I can hardly wait to lay down on line dried bedding ~ ahhhh, such a wonderful down home feeling.  It just makes me happy ~ and speaking of happy, Mr. Vintage and I went for a drive and ofcourse, stopped at a yard sale ~  We were so lucky to find this ~

Silverwood's was a Canadian milk distributor in Windsor, Ontario.  A City about 45 minutes away from Harrow.  They had other distributorships in other cities in Ontario.  This old milk crate is in wonderful condition and I couldn't resist ~

I hope all of you have a very relaxing Sunday ~ Are you relaxing today?

Can't wait to hear from you ~

Sunny Saturday ~

Good morning everyone ~ I apologize that I have been missing, but Mr. Vintage has been going through some tests and we have been at the hospital alot lately. Hopefully, the tests will come back good ~ Please say a prayer for him

Well, my Sunflower is shining it's bright face upon the back yard ~ that is definitely something to smile about ;-)

She stands very tall ~

I planted a few of these, but she is the lone survivor of the hot hot temps and the dry dry weather.  Well, I am lucky to have one ~

Fall is in the air ~ my garden is just about done ~  Some of you asked about my little "Hillbilly" shack in the back yard.  It's my little potting shed that Mr. Vintage made for me ~ we have decorated it up ~

Just perfect for a Hillbilly shack ~ don't you think?

Now, I must show you what I made out of an old window ~

Mr. Vintage hung it on my green house, but I may hang it in front of our big window in the family room ~ hmmm ~ decisions, decisions

What do you think?  Tell me, your opinion counts so much

Have a wonderful Saturday my friends ~

Music to my ears ~

Happy Saturday everyone ~

I have been busy fluffing my nest with my latest found treasures ~ fluffing my nest always makes me happy. 

Do you like to fluff your nest?

I was fluffing and thinking how much I enjoy writing letters and cards, as I was dusting my antique ink well

I love antique calling cards ~ I wish the practice of leaving them with friends would resume.  It would be such fun ;-)

In the middle of my fluffing, Mr. Vintage called me to come and see what he found ~
A vintage stereo and turntable ~ oh my~!
This side lights up and has glass shelving with a mirror on the bottom.

We are redoing our family room and I KNOW we will enjoy listening to this little beauty ...and... it works ~ ahhh, music to my ears ~  Mr. Vintage ~ you are incredible ;-)

What treasures do you love to fluff with?

Can't wait to hear from you

My greenhouse and some Treasures ~

Good morning everyone ~ I hope your weekend is going well.

I have had some e mails asking for some pictures of my green house ~ I love my green house ~ it makes me smile

Mr. Vintage built this green house for me a couple of years ago ~ Mr. Vintage is the best ;-)
And now a few treasures that I picked up this weekend

Isn't this little footed bowl the sweetest?

I just had to have this sea grass chair ~

My friend Karen gave me these.  Even though the yellow one does not have a mate and is cracked, some one has to love it ~ Don't you agree?

Well, today Mr. Vintage and I are going grocery shopping and maybe hit a few yard sales along the way ~ and then the best part ~ we're going to relax ~ ahhhhh

What are you doing today?

Can't wait to hear ~

A fantastic fish fry and treasures ~

Happy Wednesday everyone ~

Well the fish fry that Mr. Vintage and I attended was absolutely delish ~  Our friend has an absolutely goregous spot on the lake ~ Just look ~

Our camper wasn't quite set up yet, but I couldn't resist taking a picture ~
Ahhh ~ how relaxing ~ these folks were having a grand time...
What a beautiful beach ~
A lovely spot to sit and relax ~
How serene ~
Love, Love, Love the wagon wheels ~
We ate so much, I rolled to the camper ;-)
BUT ~ the best part of the night was little Lucy ~ she is sooooo adorable and fun... but at the end of the night (7:30 p.m.) she had enough of the party
Isn't she just the sweetest little girl you have ever laid eyes on?
On the way to our friends house ~ ofcourse, Mr. Vintage & I stopped at a yard sale (isn't that what we do?)
Here are some of my treasures ~

Next time I'll share with you my new ride that Mr. Vintage picked up for me

Did you have a good weekend?  What did you do?

Can't wait to hear from you ~
