2012 Vintage Sales

I made my annual visit to
to see what's popular and
in style in the world of
country chic.
Didn't see a lot of new ideas but
everything was gorgeous as usual
and the day was a beauty!

Summer afternoon

"Summer afternoon,
Summer afternoon,
To me those have always been
the two most beautiful words
in the English language"

Farmhouse Style

I've been doing some changes in
my home decor to bring in a
little more of the farmhouse style
that I love.
Some of it is from my favorite store
Rusty Glamour:)
And some I have thrifted and/or
upcycled myself.

Considering what I've managed to do
for so little cost,
it's a pretty good style to decorate in...

Camping 101

Our first camping trip of the summer
was kind of a trial run, at
the park just a few miles from home...
 Drew and I spent the nights and the others
joined us as they could for dinner
or night visiting by the fire.
 The funnest part of every event is when the
grand kids join us, cause
they see it all through those fresh
little people eyes and the
exploring takes on a whole new exciting feel!
 I even had a chance to read a book
that I haven't read since my childhood-
it was the most relaxing time I've had
in several months...
Good for the soul:)

Glamping chair

Here is my first item to add to
my "glamping" supplies.
(glamping is camping w/ glamour;)
I found this basic camping chair in the garage

and because this kind of green is not
a favorite of mine
I made a cover in a nice neutral.
I had amazing amounts of trouble with
the fit but it's okay for sitting by the
tent and reading.

You see trash, I see treasure

Some friends whose garage sale I
visited challenged me to post
what I was able to see in an
old lamp and a beat up table
that they missed!
So here you are C and K:)

And yet will I praise Him

"When He works on the left hand,
I cannot behold Him;
When He turns to the right hand,
 I cannot see Him.
But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me
I shall come forth as gold."
Job 23:9-10
