Questions for the Experts!

I find some ‘neat’ things at the Thrift store!

I still love this and I’ve had guesses for it already...

DSCN3963

and think it may be for condiment bottles.

DSCN3965

And it looks cute on a shelf....

DSCN3971

in this corner of my ‘mud room’!

(the chicken candle holder is marked Japan!)

And don’t you LOVE these old cookbooks

DSCN3973

and the pie birds on the shelf above?

DSCN3972

But what do you think this is?

DSCN3967

It’s plated metal and the whole top snaps off.

DSCN3969

I love this pretty Portugal linen...

DSCN3977

and after I washed it, I noticed tiny snaps.

DSCN3979

What is it for?

I’m joining some parties this week!

I hope you will, too!

Click on the links below to join the FUN!

visit Vintage Thingy Thursday

and Time Travel Thursday

and Thrifty Thursday

and Thrifty Things Friday !

So I need some expert ‘vintage’ advice!

Do you ever buy something just because

it’s unusual or ‘cheap’... or beautiful?

And do you have any answers? Thanks! sun 

 

A Date with a Deer!

We were ready to leave the Manatee State Park

 and look who was waiting at our vehicle!

DSCN3857

I kept taking photos and moving closer...

DSCN3858

and closer!

 DSCN3859

And my hubby was the ‘deer whisperer’!

DSCN3846

He kept talking to this little yearling

so that I could take photos!

DSCN3852

This little guy finally said, ENOUGH!

DSCN3862

And then as we were leaving the park, we saw 2 more

cross the road in front of our car.

 DSCN3869

He did NOT like the hot pavement!

DSCN3861

Deer are small here in Florida!

Do you see them where you live?

“Way down upon the Swanee Ribber”

I didn’t know HOW hard that would be to spell

WRONG! heehee!

DSCN3687

But that’s where we were according to the song,

8_Old_Folks_at_Home

which is the state song of Florida!

DSCN3710

(I was surprised to read the words to the song

and will have to admit it will not be a favorite of mine!)

DSCN3709

But we DID go to Manatee Springs at the Suwannee River!

DSCN3673

We aren’t having Mosaic Monday this week

Best-7

but I still made a mosaic!

DSCN3822 

The fish were amazing to see....

DSCN3813

Have you ever seen the Suwannee River or a Manatee?

We didn’t spot one here but my husband and I saw one

on the Gulf Coast in the wild earlier this Spring!

It was EXCITING!

Hope you enjoy your Monday!  island

Do you love pretty scents?

I’m doing a week of ‘Pretty’!

DSCN3345

This is a beautiful tea cup candle that I received

from The Scented Cottage !

DSCN3346

She has a wonderful Cottage Shop filled with pretty things!

And they are all beautiful and smell amazing!

DSCN3343

I chose the hydrangea tea cup with a cinnamon fragrance!

DSCN3340

What a lovely box to open!

DSCN3341

Beauty of the Ocean

I brought more beauty into my living room!

DSCN3893

We bought this painting at an Art Show this weekend.

DSCN3654

(no I didn’t ride a horse! lol )

DSCN3890

Hubby had just put a small bookcase in this space...

DSCN3485

and now we’ve changed the painting above it.

DSCN3484

The hanger showed so we placed a seashell on top to hide it

DSCN3892

but that will be changed soon, too! lol

I don’t live right on the coast so I surround myself with art that reminds me of places I’ve been! This painting is by local Florida artist, Toby E. Gage.

Don’t you love his card?

DSCN3888

And visit Completely Coastal today to see some more of my

‘ocean decor’! I’m so excited to have one of my photos featured!

DSCN3229

I’m joining Kim for Wow Us Wednesday!

And Faded Charm for White Wednesday!

What kind of art do you love best?
