Booth beauty, a MOUSE and a brownie!

Just to put your minds at ease,  the mouse did not eat the brownie, but we will get to that
 later. lol

A few weeks ago when we visited my daughter and her family,  I stopped at the Memories
antique mall by Fenton, Michigan again. I always love to visit there because there are a couple
booths that I just love and these first few photos are from one of them.

Can you believe that I walked out of there and didn't purchase one thing?? I KNOW!
 I had just purchased several items at the Peacock Park sale and I had to be good.

The lady who has this booth always has such wonderful items and displays so I had
to capture it in pictures once again.

Just look at all the amazing and lovely white treasures!

She sure has a knack for displaying her items beautifully!

Love this olive oil soap and the dish it sets in.

A neat way to display old linens. I love old hangers and I have several in my stash.
I need to get them out and do this. :) we are to the brownie part...I made these brownies a week or two ago and they
were sooooooo yummy!! I just mix up a regular brownie mix , put it in the pan and add
dollops of peanut butter and then bake it. We love them this way and if you like peanut
butter and chocolate I think you will too!

I have been busy , busy, busy trying to get things made for a craft show that I am going to be in
and although things are not moving along at warp speed I am getting some treasures finished.

I found these nests  with the eggs inside on clearance after Easter. They were brown and of course
 I sprayed them white and added some Martha Stewart Tinsel glitter. Love how they turned out!!

Now on to the story about the MOUSE.  Our two granddaughters Annika and Ainsley
 {little gal in these pics}were at our house last week and we were in the living room playing
with toys when we saw a mouse run around the room. Of course it startled me so
 I screeched...well kinda...ha ha!

Of course that got the girls all excited and Ainsley wanted to literally jump in my arms so I
rescued her and we tip-toed into the dining room and watched the mouse run into the kitchen
and then on into the bathroom.  Ainsleys eyes were wide and she kept saying, *BUG ,BUG*
and pointing. It was just too cute!

These pictures are her trying to tell her gpa all about it when he got in the house. It was so
precious!! She got her face so close to his and kept whispering about the mouse. I told him
to keep her talking while I ran and got the camera and thankfully it worked!!!!! She just
went on and on. I just love her facial expressions that I captured! The above photo almost
looks like she is kissing him, but she isn't...she is just whispering. :)

"oh , paw paw we saw a mouse"...
don't you just love her little hands on his face. :)

Then she had to point and show him where it ran off to. So glad I got these special
moments to keep!

Last , but not little vase of violas. I was outside this past week cleaning up
my gardens and found a few of these flowers still blooming so I had to pick them.

I sure hope I can keep in touch. I think my computer is on it's last breath, but I am
praying that it limps along for another year...think that will happen?? ha!!

Happy weekend everyone!!!!

What a great post! You managed to include antique treasures, an adorable little girl, brownies, and flowers. I think that about covers the bases!

And at that antique store, I think I would have bought every single white pitcher in that booth!

wishing you a treat-filled halloween!

I would have had to come home with those little ironstone pitchers. What better way to serve warm syrup on Saturday mornings? Love the photos of your granddaughter with paw paw! Since I can't shrink my girls back down to babies, I will eagerly await the year we will one day have grand children. Too precious!

Susan said... sweet Sandi! I just adore the photos of the sweet whisperings. You've captured a fabulous moment here, all thanks to a mouse!
