Whew What A Weekend.....

This was David this morning if you look on the lower left that is Sadie snoozing also.
What a fun and busy weekend we had..

I have a cork board in the kitchen, it catches all the things I would like to do among other things.
I had this from last year. Well that was my mystery trip it was white home market weekend.
They open once a month and have different vendors come in. It ranged from vintage to repurposed to new items it was busy and people were buying like crazy. I saw a lot of good ideas and some really cool things but I settled on this

I am not a big jewelery buyer. But this just spoke to me some how.It is sterling silver it has hallmarks. Fits me perfectly but I have no idea what the stone is. Sometimes it looks black, this is with a flash. and the price was very right less than 30.00 So my guess is it is a synthetic stone.

Next stop this little shopping village that had a pretty big antique store.

Where I found some pieces to go with my pottery I am collecting. The best part they were having a sale. I got all of these for 32.00 such a good deal. I looked on ebay and with out the salt and pepper it was  137.00

The most fun thing I found was a old hand made hook. It had rust on it and was 1.00.
The girl checking me out asked me twice if I wanted it. UMM yeah they just don't understand hooker gold.

We went to the big city of Manchester to see all the St Paddy excitement and oooh boy was there a lot.
There is a bar there called Murphy's they opened up at 5:30 am and had a line down the street. by 6:15am they had already gone through their first barrel of guiness. We were in town by 3pm and there was still a line down the street. The whole city was a sea of green with the craziest hats I have ever seen very fun. We went to our local watering hole after we got home, I had cabbage and cornbeef and to top it off some baileys very good.
Today it was 80 that is not a typo. 80's in central NH in March is unheard of, bring it on!
I spend the day cleaning the porch. Right now I have my feet up blogging on the porch and it is pure heaven.
We have come so far since last spring I would say to hell and back. My blessing are many.
 Thank you for your payers and kindness along the way it gave us both strength through the trip.
There was no need to do any housework at all.
After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.

Your new ring is really pretty. I don't know much about stones so I have no idea what it is but it is well worth the money you spent on it.
Must of been your lucky weekend because you found some bargains.
