Giveaway Only 1 day away

I had another snow day on Friday. I love staying home on snow days. I filled the cookie jar.
 I roof raked the porch and hooked the rest of the day.
 On Sat we headed for our daughter's to see that baby. Our dump has had a make over and now there is a little store with swap shop on the door. Stuff is still free so we stopped to take a look. This bottle is from a drug store no longer in business. It was filled with rose water and glycerin.
 And this is a pink luster creamer. it does have wear but it is not cracked or chipped and it is so sweet.
 And then I found this?? First I thought is was to hold Easter eggs. Nope holes to large. Then I thought maybe small plant pots, Then I started to clean it up and discovered that the design was drink grasses.
 Yep it is to carry our drinks to the porch. I think it is pretty cute. Ice tea anyone???
 I still have two sides of the border left to do but here is how the end result will look. If this is your first time seeing this rug it is 54'' square.
 and we did make it to see our grand baby. This is pure love. My husband is over the moon for her, well we all are. We both agree it is like looking at our daughter at that age again. Ashley and Ron you did good!!! She is growing like a little weed. She is 31/2 weeks old.

I am adding this vintage spring tulip tablecloth to my giveaway. I think it is 40'' square I am adding the napkins they do not match but go with it. Don't forget to leave a comment to enter, and look back at the last post to see what else is in the giveaway.The drawing is Thur the 27th. I am up to 106 followers amazing! To my new followers welcome!
I forgot to close with a quote last time and since everyone enjoyed the Phyllis Diller quote last time I will close with another of her gems...... Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight......ha now, now,no fighting.

I think the only thing more beautiful than your rug (love, love, LOVE it!) is that picture of hubby and the grandbaby. I love how she is staring at him. Now where is the picture with you and the grand?
Pug hugs :)

Kim @ Touch of Nostalgia said...

I love the photo of your hubbie and granddaughter. She is looking so intently with so much love at him (and visa versa). So sweet. :) I love your rug.I have never tried hooking but watching your progress on your rug makes me want to learn how. I want your dump. ;) I busted icicles from the roof this weekend. Some were so huge! As big around as my arm. A bit scarey when they are that huge coming down.

Have a wonderful 'warm' day. :)

Hi Cathy, Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love pie as well, but you made cookies this past Friday, another one of my favorites, LOL. Have a good week.

Dianne said...

Oh, Cathy! She's beautiful!!! I know you and your husband are beyond excited!

You have a great thrift shop...I think I'm going to check out the few in town here this week. You've inspired me. I'll let you know if I find anything interesting.

Those cookies in the vintage cookie jar are making me hungry...they look so good!

Wow I can't imagine having a place at the dump to find things. Unheard out here. Baby is so cute looking up at Grandpa.

Sunny simple life said...

Too funny. We sound like the same sort of people. We don't even go out to eat too often but certainly not when it is crowded. We are going out to breakfast kind of people. Leave the kids all home and go out for coffee and conversation.
