Window Whimsey ~


Hello my friends ~ I am adding a few little touches of spring to the Vintage home ~



Mr. Vintage and I picked up an old window the other day and I just had to do something with it ~



It has now become my spring inspiration board ~







I picked up these little vegetable markers at Michael's and now they are inspiring my spring mood ;-)

How are you bringing spring into your home?

I am linking up to Tweak it Tuesday ~ come and join the fun

Spring Inspiration ~


Happy Friday ~!

Today it is snowy and blowy and freezy and rainy.  



It is supposed to warm up, but the freezing rain is on the way ~  So, I decided to turn to a little Spring Inspiration ;-)

Mr. Vintage went with me to Michael's and he thought I should buy a little birdhouse.  I did and he bought one too ;-) ~ Mr. Vintage is so cute

This is my little spring birdhouse ~






Here is Mr. Vintage's birdhouse ~





We spent the afternoon last weekend painting our birdhouses and laughing and chatting ~ it was a very enjoyable day ~



He also picked this up for me, it smells heavenly ~



Just a little spring inspiration for you on this snowy blustery day ~



Please share your spring inspiration with me ~

I can't wait for spring to arrive ~ how about you?

A new bed for Chico ~



Happy Sunday everyone ~ It's sunny and bright here in Ontario today.  Although still chilly ~

I bought this cute little antique doll bed at a yard sale last summer and I have not found a place to put it.  Well, the other day, I put it under my desk in my little inspiration room ~



I think Chico has adopted the bed for his own ;-)



He always has to be  near me, even when I am catching up with my blogging friends ~



Mommy ~ are you done?  Can we play?



Can we play now? 

Yes Chico, we'll play now

See you soon ~!

(((Hugs)))

Sharing Saturday ~


Happy Saturday ~ !  I am so glad it is the weekend ~ and a long one for me.  Monday is Family Day in Canada and I took Tuesday off too ;-)

Last weekend Mr. Vintage and I went to a Shabby Chic sale ~
Sigh ~ such lovely treasures were there ~

I did come home with a few and I would like to share them with you ~



I picked up this cute little alarm clock for my desk so I always know what time it is ~



She fits right in ~ don't you think?



This little pillow had to come home with me ~



A little fairy for my desk and she is so cute ~



She has a bird on her foot ~ I think the little birdie is singing the fairy a song ~



This pretty lady had to come home with me ~ I think she is just lovely ~



Don't you?



A little mirror ~ I just propped her here for now ~



Love the detail ~

Remember I made myself a pen pot because I couldn't find one? ~ Well, 



Ofcourse, I found one now ;-)

and then Mr. Vintage spotted a true treasure again



This is going in our family room ~ Don't you just love it ~





Ofcourse, I have saved the best for last ~ Mr. Vintage spotted this for me ~



Yes, Yes, Yes an old door! ~ I have been wanting one for so long



Quite a few treasures.  Thank you for letting me share them with you ~

Please share some treasures with me ~ I can't wait to hear whether you have found any lately ~



Have a wonderful day 

((((Hugs))))

tweek ~


Hello my friends ~

I have been busy tweaking my little office ~



Here is my little mail holder that I picked up this weekend ~

I've been looking for a cute little pen pot, but alas I could not find one ~ so I made one




 A little tweak but I think it's cute ~ 


Of course, this is where I create and I am inspired ~


Love this and had to add this to my desk


A scale to weigh the situation ~ ;-)


Everyone needs string ~ and birdsong 


So here it is ~ I love my little space ~

What do you think?

I am going to try to  link up to Tweaking it Tuesday at Brenda's ~ first time doing it, so wish me luck ;-)

(((Hugs)))
