This & that

I visited my momma this week and was greeted with a bunch of beautiful morning glories that are climbing the lattice on her front porch.  I had to get a pic of them, even though the pup (Buddy) started jumping on me and nearly sent me tumbling down the yard.  That would not have been a pretty sight!

Here's Rocco at about a year and a half old.  Isn't he a gorgeous rottie?

I found these mushroom salt and pepper shakers at Goodwill the other day.  I certainly don't NEED more salt and pepper shakers, but they were so darn cute I couldn't resist.  I (GASP) paid full price for them too-which was 99 cents a piece!

This mug is from Goodwill too.  I loved it because it's handmade.  It looks like they pressed flowers into the clay.  I think this side is gorgeous-the other side, not so much.  It says Northwestern PI CPA Chapter.  I think I'll just use it for decoration only and just keep the pretty side facing outward.

And I don't think I've ever shown this bank.  Larry's uncle (he's passed away now) gave a bunch of these to family, long ago.  He had them made from old post office boxes.  There's a slot in the top for your change.  He wrote the combination to open it on a slip of paper and taped it on the bottom of the bank.  I've always loved this bank, I think it's so cool! 

My friend, Dawnie, (I say that alot on here) shared some of her yard sale finds with me!  (Lucky me, right?)

(By the way, Dawnie's beautiful home is filled with wonderful antiques, mostly from Goodwill and yardsales!)

Welp, that's all for now-have a good day!

You have a generous friend! And I must say that Rocco is a very handsome dog. He has a real air of dignity about him (but then you go and show him being a goofball sometimes and that kind of wrecks the image!).

I love misc. posts because there are so many cool things. Your Mom's flowers are beautiful and so is Rocco! Remi misses him!! Love your mushroom finds! I hadn't been to Goodwill for a few weeks and I found alot of nice stuff the other day, especially work clothes which I needed. The bank is awesome. What a wonderful idea!

Ok, ok! You always find great things at the Good Will. Why am I never this lucky? I always go in with a great attitude and leave sad because I never seem to find a great, little treasure. :(

I can just imagine all of the wonderful things you have stashed around your home Holly. How many salt and pepper shakers does that make now? I need your email, my blog misses you as i had to go private
