The weather report was right on and I got some great pictures for you to see. Have you been hit by this snowstorm.

It is still falling and very heavy right now. Hope we don't lose power. These pictures were taken at 10:45 this morning and we have at least 4 more inches on the ground!
I love this first pic.

UPDATE 4:00 pm ....we have a foot on the ground right now and still snowing!!!!

Killing me not being able to bring out my Christmas decorations but I will wait one more week.

Stay Warm

Found another great old coffee bin !

My one and only treasure I purchased at the Breckenridge sale on saturday.

I spotted it when I first walked into the room and you know how that is with great pieces, they go quick so if you wait it will be gone. I couldn't believe how many pieces were sold the first 10 minutes of the show.
I picked up Sue, Brenda, and Cheryl in my van and it worked out great. It had a lot of room and it was loaded to the  max by the time we were done. LOL!!!!
We stopped at an antique store on the way to Black Sheep Farm and the girls found more treasures to load in the van. I almost had a few extra guests and wish I took a picture but had to act fast. I had the side door open and went to the back to open it and chickens were surrounding my van and 2 decided to hop right in. Holy crap that was not fun getting them out! Where did they come from? I don't know.... but scattered crumbs from a donut around and they fell for it and off we went.
I found this prim box in Black Sheep that will have so many uses.

Love the handmade hinges and the color too.

Black checked prim valances for my bathroom windows.
Cozied it right up.


Spents the last 2 days in my yard all day cleaning up all my flower beds since it was so warm here. Cut greens to decorate my porch but I will show you on another post for the holidays. I think after today the warm weather will be coming to and end with snow on Saturday. 1-3 inches ( hope not)

Stay warm!!!

It was a birdhouse weekend in Ohio!

Top 2 and the one below

And these other two

The van below is a 2011 Grand Caravan 
Norm went to a U of M auction at the fairgrounds a few weeks ago
and bought it. Now I don't have to climb into his huge pickup to haul treasures and let me tell you it was difficult. I had to use a ladder to get in it and hard climbing into the cab too.
Love my new van, using it to go to the Breckenridge Primitive show on Saturday.

My last 2 pumpkins for Fall with a beautiful sunset/

Lost our power this morning and back on now. Was getting pretty cold in here. Very strong blizzard winds today and I think continuing untill Saturday.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Vintage pics today

Love vintage Thanksgiving pictures because it reminds me so much of my childhood this time of year. Very special memories ! Which one is your favorite?


Wish these sweet lights were still in production!
So darn sweet.

I will be back this week after I take pictures of my treasures I found in Mansfield and Seville. Just let me say it was a birdhouse weekend. (5)
Bobbie did all the driving which for me is always a treat because I love sightseeing, especially at night with all the candlestick lights in windows. It is a big thing in Ohio. I do the same thing here at home. Norm had a customer comment how he loves driving by our house at night seeing the lights in  the darkness. Very sweet don't you think!

~Happy Monday~
