I need your help ~

Hello my friends ~ I need a bit of advice ~

If you read my blog, you know that my daughter has bought a new home and has moved out ~ I am doing well with this transition ~ she is not ~

She moved in on Saturday, and she called me this morning, crying ~ she wants to come home ~ she doesn't feel comfortable ~

I have been there, helping her set up her new home ~ I think she is homesick ~

She can't sleep, feels sick to her stomach and misses her home ~ what can I do?

I just advised her to take a hot bath, have a cup of tea and try and bond with her new home ~

Do you have any suggestions?  I don't want her to come home for fear that I am enabling her to stay with us ~

I am so confused ~ Please, if you have gone through this transition, I would love any advice you can give me ~

It's just so hard so see your children hurting ~

Thank you my friends ~ I depend on your advice

My favourite place ~

Hello my friends ~ well, we have been VERY busy moving Britt into her new home.  She's not moved in yet, she is waiting for her furniture.  Ofcourse, my little princess had to have a king size bed and it will arrive this coming Saturday.  Let's hope the mattress is delivered too, they have been told there may be a delay in the mattress delivery ~

Today, Mr. Vintage and I took a much needed rest and we visited our favourite place


Would you like to come with us?  Here we go ~

They carry  a wide array of beautiful linens ~

Love this cabinet ~

This one is to die for ~ if I only had a place to put it ;-)

Love this stove ~ sigh ~ some day ~

And the architectural salvage ~ well, be still my heart ~

I just love visiting at Dusty Loft Antiques ~  Thank you Gene and Sherry for allowing me to photograph some of your treasures ~

Next time, I'll show you what Mr. Vintage and I picked up (there is a little hint in one of these pictures)  Can you guess?

I hope all of you are well ~

Have a wonderful week  ;-)

Have you been treasure hunting lately?

It's time ~

Hello once again my friends ~ I have truly missed you ~

We have been busy, going through Britt's house for a final approval.  Busy trying to buy appliances and you know, getting her settled, packing boxes ~

 I wish the best for her and her new future ~ so many possibilities ~

I am going to miss having that cup of tea in the morning and catching up on the days events ~

But ~

There will be times to have a cup and still catch up on days or weeks events ~

Time to visit for dinner ~

Time for a quick cuppa ~

I am going to miss her so ~

I LOVE you Britt ~ I am so happy that you have found happiness ~ that is all I ever wanted for you ~ fly my little one, fly ~

I will be here for you ~ FOREVER ~

It's o.k. Mommy, I'll keep you busy ~

When I'm not napping ~

Thank YOU my friends for letting me share this bittersweet time  ~  THANK YOU




A Moment ~

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below

We are the dead, short days ago
We lived, felt dawn,  saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you from failing hands we throw
the Torch; be yours to hold up high
If ye break faith with us, who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

John McCrae

Good morning my friends ~ I hope you all enjoy your Sunday, but please ~

take a moment of your time to remember all war heroes of past and present ~ U.S.A. and Canada and say a prayer for our troops.

Thank you

Sunday Sharing ~

Happy Sunday my friends ~

As you know, Mr. Vintage and I have put our house up for sale and there have been several couples through the house.  Wow, it's alot of work putting your house up.  Clean, clean, clean at a moment's notice.  But, it's all good ~ it's time to downsize and I am looking forward to it. 

Well, yesterday we had two showings and Mr. Vintage and I had to leave the residence.  So, Mr. Vintage asked me whether I would like to browse through our favourite thrifting stores ~ yes~! yes~! and YES~!

I spotted something out of the corner of my eye ~

Isn't this footed bowl just lovely? 

Love the pattern and the delicacy of the painting ~

I looked and yes, my friends, it's Limoges.  I picked her up for $4.00 ~ 

When I got to the check out, there were three little books that had no covers.  I asked the lady how much they were and she said "We're throwing them out, they have no covers".  She gave them to me.  Now I have them resting on the coffee table.  I will do something with them ~

I thought I would also share with you my violets.  They are blooming again ~ I so love afican violets and speaking of which ~

I also want to share with you my little wall flower Sophie ~  She is such a little princess ~

She loves to nap ~

What are you doing today?  Treasure hunting?  Thrifting? Napping? ~  please share with me ~
I'd love to hear
