Shopping Date

My friend Judy and I like to
get together for shopping/lunch dates

This week we headed over to
the cute town of Cuero

We hit lots of shops
like Rendezvous and B's boutiques
Wagner's Hardware Store
and upstairs gift shop
Batz & More Antiques

but our favorite pick of the day was

Off Broadway
on Main Street
  Lot's to see in this fun shop

We both left with bags in each hand!!!!
This shop has great prices and a 
wonderful selection of vintage linens

Here's a look at some of my buys.....

I bought this sweet little pillow

and three vintage pillow cases
which I used to make the
next three pillows

and a plain little pillow
and a vintage hanky
I combined them into a cute pillow

I think they turned out pretty cute!!!

They'll be for sale in my booth next week!!!

Oh and I almost forgot this sweet little purchase
Little baby shoes and a darling dresser scarf
So Precious

......and last  
I found these great cotton curtain panels
for $6.00 each
they looked like something from Pottery Barn

I knew they would work great in my booth

I hung them with ribbons from the ceiling

 Aren't they a great addition to my booth!

Every Little Birdie says-
 Great shopping and lunch with a 
wonderful friend

Changing it up!!

I don't know about you 
but I'm constantly making 
little changes around the house

Nothing stays in one place too long

I get in one of those "moods"
and I move one little thing
and that leads to another,
and another, 

Well you get the picture

Here are some of my latest changes

 I love changing up my sideboard

also the little book shelf over
my kitchen desk

and then there was this project
I was working on for my booth

but it never made it that far
I decided the hallway wall
outside my guest bath
needed a little something!

 My hubby walked by the other day
and said "has that always been there?"

"Why know dear, it hasn't.  It was time 
for a little change"

Don't you just love to see
how long it takes a man
to notice change!

Every Little Birdie says
 I made one little change
while I was taking pictures for this post
Did you spot it?????

Fall Breeze

Here in South Texas
if you are in just the right spot
at just the right time
You just might feel
an ever so slight fall breeze
Or maybe it's my imagination
but never the less
I'm in the mood to start
working on some fall
projects for my booth

I'm also going to do something
with these cute labels
Every Little Birdie says-
Hoping wherever you are
there is a cool breeze
coming your way

Evening visitors

Love sitting out on the patio 
in the evening 

All God's Creatures

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Every Little Birdie says
 Thank you Lord for your 
wonderful creation

Remember the piece
I found while junking
at the coast?

Well it has found a re-purposed place in my home.....

Right at the front door 
next to my wardrobe

I love how it looks with the light
streaming through the front door

Every Little Birdie says
 I just love to re-purpose things
