The winter blahs

I don’t know if it is the goose egg on my head or just
the time of year, but I am in a funky mood. Can't get inspired, don’t want to do much, kinda lazy to boot
and a whole lot of nothing going on in this head.lol.

I am taking 1000 mg a day in antibiotics and the
"goose egg" hasn’t gone down in size at all {at least not
that I can tell}, but it is no longer sore so that is a
good thing. I do not feel bad at all that is why this is so
strange. I do not want to keep running to the doctor,
but I guess if I have to visit him again I will. Ugh.

I took a few photos around the house today to share with
you. I seriously thought about not participating in WW
this week, but I have never missed one so I thought
better of that idea. I sure wish I could visit many more of
your blogs. One of these days...it WILL happen!
The skies will open up and drop high speed down here
on Buckeye Road! :)

Last week when I went antiquing in Blissfield I found a
shoebox stuffed full and overflowing with vintage lace
pieces and it was only $3.00! I snatched that up quick.
I always can use lace for my projects and old lace adds
a special touch that new lace just can't do.

Yards and yards of some pieces. I washed it all up good
and ironed it too. I just have a good feeling after
freshening up old lace and making it smell pretty.

love old white buttons
Isn't this a beautiful face? It is on a tin that
I got some time ago at Hobby Lobby.

I know you have seen these candles before , but I wanted
to show you the cage that I purchased at Blissful Living
last week.
They even left the dried hydrangea in it for me. Love it!

Hoping you have a beautiful day and a wonderful
White Wednesday. Be sure and check out Faded Charm
for more links.

{You may all think I have totally lost my marbles, but I will
be doing a post soon on old putty knives. The patina on
the handles along with the paint splatters just spoke to me}

Don't forget to enter my giveaway here if you haven't
already.
Blessings~

Such beautiful treasures as always! I hope you lump goes away soon. I think it might be the time of year, I was feeling a bit blah yesterday and couldn't get motivated to do much. And I can't blame it on the weather cuz it was gorgeous here!!!

Hi Sandi, sure hope your head feels better soon... I am thinking of you!... all your whites are so pretty, love that lace!... and I don't think it is odd at all doing a post about old putty knives... when my daddy passed away, one of the first things I wanted was his old putty knife... he used it for everything and I love it!... xoxo Julie Marie

Sandi I am salivating over all your lacy, white, flowery pictures today. Seriously...$3??? Awesome find.

I have been worrying over your bump and your infection. I hope you are taking care of yourself. And yes, you MUST see the doctor again to make sure it is healing. How is that for mothering (bossing) you?
big hugs to you...

You have NEVER missed a WW! That is truly amazing. Does Kathleen know. I think that deserves special recognition.
I do hope you are not in too much pain and that the medication will work quickly.
Your WW post was a great inspiration for me to get busy and do something creative.
*Big Hugs* dear friend
