It bloomin' hurts ~

Hello my friends ~  My flower garding is just popping ~

We have had some wonderful temperatures here in Ontario, although it has cooled off quite a bit today.  But I must remember it is March ~

I am so excited that spring is here ~

I would love to get cleaning the garden, but alas, I can't.  Saturday, as I was looking through our freezer in the kitchen, a heavy glass mug fell out of the freezer and landed on my toe ~ ouch ~ it bloomin' hurts.

It is also a nice shade of purple, like my hyacinth ;-)

I had to take the day off work today, because I can't even put a shoe on, let alone walk around ~

So, I guess I'll have a cup of coffee and catch up on everyone's blogs today.  Hopefully, I can get a shoe on tomorrow.

What are you doing today?

Let me know, I think I need some company

Has it arrived ~?

Happy Sunday my friends ~

Do you think Spring has arrived?

Everything is waking up from their slumber ~ the birds are singing and the trees are popping ~

The crocuses are blooming, the iris are peeking up out of the earth and the tulips are reaching for the sky ~

It has been over 70 degrees for the past week ~ so I decided Spring has arrived.  I have put the chairs back on the porch and Mr. Vintage and I have our special spot where we have coffee every morning ~

Right here ~

How glorious to be outside again ;-)

Sit down, relax and have a cup with me ~ tell me ~ do YOU think Spring has arrived ~

Can't wait to hear about your neighbourhood

She's Home ~

Good morning everyone ~ I think Spring has arrived.  We have had sunny days with 65 degrees F.   I so love spring

It is a time of renewal and hope.  A time where everything is waking up and fresh ~

Mr. Vintage surprised me today.   I came home and there she was in all her glory ~  I think you remember Ruby ~

This is a picture of her camping last year ~

Well, I was so darned excited, I swept her out, dusted and washed her down and made the bed... then...

YES, we slept in the camper last night ;-)

Are you in the Spring mood?  How are you enjoying the Springlike weather?

Can't wait to hear.



PS ~ some of you have asked where Marge got my wonderful boots.  Well, she was shopping in Ohio and can't remember the store ~ sorry friends, if she remembers I will let you know ;-)

New Rain Boots ~

Happy Saturday ~ today is such a lovely spring like day ~ it is making me smile ~

Tomorrow is supposed to be even more beautiful with the temps reaching 62 degrees F and lots and lots of sunshine ~

I am really in a spring mood.  My friend Marge brought me a wonderful spring surprise ~ I have been looking for rain boots, but couldn't find any that I liked....well,  look at these beauties ~

Aren't these just the sweetest boots you have ever seen?

That's not all ~

A second pair ~ Wow, I am one lucky lady.  Thank you so much Marge.  I will wear these constantly ;-)

Do you wear rain boots?

Now, I must go a find a puddle ~ Hey, Chessie, want to go for a walk?  Let's go!

Thrifting ~

Happy Satuday everyone ~  Well, I gave myself a treat today and went thrifting ~ how I miss it ~

I picked up a couple of treasures ~

I picked up this old clock face for $1.00 ~ It just had to come home with me ~

I had to have these tea cups for $2.00 ~ I just love the little roses on them ~ I will have to have a cup of tea tonight ;-)

I just had to bring these little nappies home too ~ Aren't they adorable?

AND best of all Mr. Vintage surprised me.  You see, I have been looking at these glass cannisters in the antique shop.  They were way too expensive.  They came from a candy store in Detroit, Michigan.  I just loved them ~ no I coveted them ~  well, 

Mr. Vintage knows the antique dealer and talked to him about them and the dealer gave them to Mr. Vintage for 1/3 of the price.  Thank you honey so much ~

The lids were in rough shape, so Mr. Vintage painted them pistachio and I love them ~ 

It was a wonderful thrifting day. 

Have you gone thrifting lately?  It's too cold here for yard sales, but I can hardly wait ~ Have you gone yard saling ~ please share with me

Can't wait to hear from you
