Old and New

As most of you know we've had
our grandchildren for a couple of weeks.
We had a great time and
packed in  LOT'S of fun
but now they are home and 
my house is too quiet......... I decided I would take time to do a quick post 

Just thought I'd share a
few new (or not so new)
decorative things around my nest

My mom bought us this cute little birdie
to hold notes, cards, recipes......

Don't you love his tarnished look

He is a great addition to my "Birdie Collection"

I found this cute sign at
one of the little shops on the square
in Goliad, Texas

Below the word BLESSINGS it says-

grow old with me...the best is yet to be

Isn't it pretty

.....and last I will share a treasure I found
at Evelyn's Antiques in Schulenburg, Texas
(one of my side trips)

I found this brown vintage bottle
on a dusty shelf for 75 cents!!!!
(that's right 75 pennies!!!!)

OK, it didn't have the label on it and
there was a crack running up the front

But still - what a bargain!!!!!!

I found the vintage label on
"The Graphic's Fairy" website,
pasted it on with a little mod podge
and guess what?????
You can not longer see the crack......
Just a darling vintage bottle!!!!

Every Little Birdie says -

I love feathering my nest!!
