Well the rug is fixed! Not bad you can see it but it is better than
a hole.

We woke up to this! A little early but very pretty.

Last night we went to an auction. as you can see we did ok!

I believe the santa is 50's , the basket I am not sure if it is shaker
or not it has wood handles on the top. Great shape for 5.00 it was full
of oldish embroidery things that are going to the thrift store.

This old rug no one wanted I got for 5.00 I love it but
really do I need another rug????

I went to tractor supply with husband and found these little lights
6 for 4:99 plus and extra battery for each one. I wanted to
country them up a bit. the cup has melted wax.

I tried painting it on not great.

So I threw the rest of them in the cup and then in the bag of spices
better. Next time I will use glue instead of wax but it worked.
I like them better than just white.
I hope your weekend was a fun one. Have a great week!

The snowy tree and yard looks priceless and so beautiful. The snowshoes will come in handy.
I think that I'm getting weary of cold weather as I age. I always feel cold.

Nice finds. I really love those vintage Christmas ornaments. They will look so pretty on your tree.

I hope that you have a great week.

When you find something you love, is it really ever a matter of 'need'??

Julia said...

I just had to come back and say what a great job you did on repairing the rug. I can't even tell that it was damaged.

It dawned on me after I had posted a comment last evening but got side tracked and forgot. My brain is getting tired...

OH wow Snow and in November. Blows this Texas gals wee little mind. lol
It is lovely though looking at it through your window and long distance. haha
You are so busy and I love what you did with your lights and saving the rug.
So happy to hear David is better. I wish I had known sooner it makes me feel bad to think I did not know about David being in the hospital for so long. I always have you guys in my prayers.
On your comment about snakes not being poisonous in your area just gave me one more reason for wanting to live there. haha
Love ya
