Venturing Out

Yesterday it was a bit cloudy and cool, 
with some drizzling rain.

I ventured out to a few spots 
where I haven't been before.

Antiques and More in Lebanon 
was a nice surprise. 
I honestly thought it was going to be 
a high cotton place with high-end antiques.
Instead, it was my favorite kind of place to pick.

I found a few goodies. 


I've collected my share of birdhouses
and sold them all in my booth.

This one made me think of snow and Winter.
I'm gonna use it in my February vignette.
(Can you believe we are almost in February!)


Yes, once I collected old clocks.
Why, oh why did I get rid of everything!
Not again!


Oh, my goodness!
I fell in love with these spools of thread. 
They were $1 each. 

Ordinarily I would not pay this for a single spool of thread, 
but I've been on the prowl for these forever.
I'm going back and get the other 4 spools.


I will somehow incorporate these into my February display.

Say a little prayer for me today from 2:00-3:00 pm.
I'm seeing an ENT for this hoarseness that I've had for 8 months.

 The doctor will run a light down my nose to see what is going on. 
My sister said he would numb my throat and I may feel like I can't breathe.
She said sometimes it brings on a panic attack. 

WHAT???
I'm a panic attack waiting to happen at any time. 

I'm believing God that all will be well, 
that I WILL NOT PANIC, and 
he will find and treat what is going on. 

Thanks for your prayers.

  8. Nice pickin'. It's time to start doing that again. I miss shopping for antiques.
    I'm having the same hoarseness. It's been going on for a couple of years now. Please do share what the diagnosis is. I pray that it's "nothing".
    Luv ~:)

  11. You found some really cute things. Hope your ENT appt went okay- I am surprised they went through your nose though. They usually just go down your throat. Bet you did just fine! Trying to get a few blog visits in tonight while hubby is feeling good. xo Diana

  12. I like your finds!
    I'm late to pray, but I hope it went well. I had to see an ENT for the same thing a few years ago. They went down my nose too and it was no fun. I will be praying they found a cause that's easily treated.

  13. I love everything. Birdhouses are my weakness---we have so many trees! The clock seems very familiar. Hmmmm...

    I hope you feel well soon. I've been coughing for weeks. What can we do?
