The good news is that I found loads of time that I thought was missing!! Ha ha! Guess that means all that "extra"time I was, well, blogging!!
I miss seeing what you are all up to and doing WW and posting for Matildas' show! The sale is this week end and I have some great pictures, but won't be posting them for another couple of days until we can get the 'ol internet figured out! SOOOOOOOO Frustrating! Oh well. Life goes on. Hope you are all doing well and I'll be back blogging soon!

First of all I want to thank everyone who participated in my very first giveaway. I never dreamed I would have so many participants over the past three weeks…. and there were hundreds of you!!
I felt so impacted by you beautiful comments on my pillows…so, to me, my words of thanks seem a bit trifle. I have sometimes felt uncertain of this new adventure I am going on, but all of your wonderful comments have helped to easy some of that anxiety, so thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Now, it is my pleasure to announce the three winners. There was a winner a week for each of the three weeks. Each winner will receive one of my Tattered Elegance Pillows.

I drove to my daughter’s home in Arizona once again….this is the sunrise on Friday morning..Arizona sunrises and sunsets are by far the most magnificent! This time I was going for my grand daughter, Holly’s 9th birthday. It was to be a fast trip…Friday through Sunday…so shopping was to limited. My husband came down with a bad cold so I decided to drive by myself ….time alone to think and rejuvenate.
So this is what happened….
Yeow-Za, I did it again! Well, when you find so many great things and your shopping time is limited…you have to go for the gusto, right? I again had to rent a trailer, but that’s okay cause I think I picked up some fun things…
A sweet vanity
This is an awesome hutch made in France. The doors to the top are amazing. It needs some work, so I’ll be showing you the “after” pictures soon!
A fireplace mantel
A lingerie chest and enameled-topped table…I don’t usually buy the tables like this, but when it’s close to free, why not!
This is a chaise from a cruise ship..swwweet!
I love this old street sign…. Cross & Willow St. from Missouri!
Metal drawer file and industrial stool.. And a wonderful old watercolor.
Old iron gate
A pair of antlers, wonderful Lavender from my favorite hobby store..And an iron planter/basket
And my most favorite, favorite thing…this sweet cherub. When I purchased it, the gentleman thought it was concrete…well, sweet surprise…it’s lead ( I believe)… Can I just say… HEAVY!
A pair of European shutters
A chippy ol’ concrete planter
A pair of old andirons
Here’s an old saxophone that got run over by a steam roller!!…not sure what I’m going to do with it, but thought it was different and cool.
And here I am Sunday evening driving back (with a cold.. boo hoo) to California….A fast trip but had fun with the family and celebrated Holly’s 9th birthday on Saturday at Dave and Buster’s!
Hope you are all finding your treasures and staying warm these cold winter days.
