One year more blessed ~

I think I need two houses to decorate.
{I didn't say to clean, I said to decorate.lol.}

I love the creams and neutrals nowdays,
but my heart still skips a beat when I find
vintage pieces like this~

I found this at an antique mall when I was at my daughter's
home last weekend...$2.00.
{along with another one that I will share later}

I had picked up a few vintage prayer cards and also
a vintage silver dish and although I really liked them,
I didn't have that
*oh my goodness* feeling
that I get when I find something really special
until... I found these~

They were in the very last booth at the antique mall
and I had to root through old paper items to find
these gems, but it was so worth it!

It's the little things that send me
*over the moon*.

My birthday was yesterday...all day long.
that means I am one year older,
one year wiser, {not sure about this one...lol},
one year crazier,
and one year more blessed!!

Have a beautiful sunshiny Thursday~

Happy Birthday Sandi! I am glad you had a good time at the Antique Mall. This treasure would have sent me over the moon, too. What is it made out of? Do you have a special spot all picked out?

Have a wonderful day.

Happy birthday, Sandi! Hope it was a lovely day for you! I always think it should be a birthday week--so I think you should consider to spoil yourself today...and tomorrow....! Perhaps more antiques-shopping is required!

Whatever you do today, hope you enjoy every second of it!

Sandi, Happy Beautiful Birthday Week to you!! (Stretch it out, more pampering, buy yourself more little gifts).

I so adore also the little God with Us card (or maybe it is metal?) - just the most gorgeous roses...

Sandi I wish I'd have known. I would have been here earlier to have wished you a happy birthday!!!
I love your latest treasures. I love that you are happy over the little things. It is a blessed way to live our lives.
I painted all day and so I'm late getting around, but I'm here. I've got to paint all day tomorrow too.Rats!!!
hugs

Wouldn't it really be just fabulous - to have another house to decorate and call our very own. Maybe just a special place to chill and walk around and touch the lovely things. Since it is your birthday - I wish for that for you!
