Family, Food, Fun and Fleas

Such a good weekend!

Family, food, fun, and fleas!

Good Will in Nasvhille is right down the road from my daughter's home.  It was 1/2 Price Saturday and I practically stole a mirror.  It is OLD and FAB!  The perfect FIND!  I plan to paint it WHITE, of course!  Will decide later if I want to sell!  You know I'm a nut about a mirror.  Photos to follow.

Three Yard Sales in the neighborhood.
While turning in, I spotted a garage sell and bought two chairs, $2 each, a heart shaped wire basket that I plan to paint white, a wooden letter sorter that will be perfect for any desk, and I spent less that $5!
Next stop, I didn't buy a thing!  She knew what she had and didn't mind holding on to it!
Next stop, Lebanon Road, more of a sidewalk sale!  I bought a tin sea gull, a lamp, a basket-$2.25!

All my finds were under $15 total!

The Fleas...

Giving my son's bedroom a facelift-going nautical!

An Old Country Living magazine-My Inspiration-white with blue and red accents.

With some clean up and rope, the lantern will be perfect!

I love the spool!  It will work nicely!

The Family, the Food, and the Fun...

We celebrated my son's birthday-the one on the right; he'll be 27 on May 11.  He was my Mother's Day gift in 1985.
The red velvet cake-divine!
The girls enjoyed catching up on the 2nd season of Downton Abbey while the boys watched the Food Channel. 

Our little man fell alseep in Grandy's arms.

A Perfect Weekend-What more can I say!
