Wishing Everyone A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Hello to all my Bloggie Friends! I probably won't be posting again until after the New Year, so I wanted to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a Wonderful and Joyful Christmas and a Happy & Safe New Year ~ I'm taking a little bit of time off to spend with my family for the Holidays, but will be back after the New Year :)

So until next time sweet friends :) Warmest hugs to you all, Brenda

Some Goodwill & Thrift Store Treasures ~ 20% off EVERYTHING in my Etsy Shoppe

Hello everyone! I don't have a Tea post again this week...I've kinda shown you ladies all the cups that I have in my little collection :( But, I thought I would show you a couple of things that I found last week while out doing a little treasure hunting ~ these 3 items were purchased in our neighboring town's Goodwill store, and the consignment shop, The Corner Closet, in Newaygo Michigan. I had sooo wanted to go check them out yesterday (which happened to be my birthday), but it was waaaay to cold, and the roads were waaaaay to icy for me to venture out it! I have always hated having a December birthday, because, more often than not, there is usually some snow storm that hits around that time. My son was happy though, NO SCHOOL yesterday, lol :) Oh, and a little FYI for you ladies....I was born on FRIDAY the 13th! My mom said it was a good day cuz' I was born....my siblings have another opinion on that one, lol :) Also, my hubby was born on May 13th, also a friday, and on Mother's day too!

Until Christmas Eve, everything that is listed in my Etsy shoppe is now 20% off ~ perhaps you will find that gift for someone special, or who you haven't bought for yet :)

Below are photos of the 3 items that I wanted to show you all....

This birdcage isn't old, but I just love it, and found it at Goodwill....I want to paint it white, but right now it's still too cold outside to do any spray painting, and of course, I wouldn'd dream of doing it inside the home :0 ...

This is a very heavy candle holder...it was originally a medium brown in color, but I was able to paint this white...this was purchased at the consignment shop a couple of days prior to going to Goodwill...when the weather was much nicer and a bit warmer.....

this was purchased at the Goodwill store, and was already this nice creamy white, so no changes need to be made with it...I don't know yet what I might place inside of it; perhaps some pretty faux pink roses :)...

Well, that's about it for now....have you all got your Christmas shopping done? Me? NOPE! Hubby and I are planning to go out to dinner to celebrate my birthday this friday, then get the xmas shopping done afterwards...we have a family xmas party to go to this Saturday on hubbys side of the family.

Until next time bloggie friends!! :)

Hello again my bloggie friends :) Well, yesterday here in Michigan, winter decided to make it's presence, and we got our first official snowfall for the season...YUCK!!! I am NOT a big fan of snow...it can be here for Christmas eve, and for Christmas, but then it HAS to GO!! We live in Newaygo county, and they are terrible at maintaining the roads here....you know when you get to the Kent/Newaygo county line, as our side will be covered with snow on the roads, and Kent county's will be nice and clear!! NO FAIR!! Oh well, just have to put up with it until about March or so :(

Anyhoo, enough of that, now on to this post....I've got a couple of really sweet pillows now listed in my Ebay shoppe, and I am now having a special in my ETSY shoppe, where all my Christmas items are now 20% off, which are my stockings and my little pillow ornaments ~ Hope you'll get a chance to stop on over to check things out :) Now I am going back in my little sewing room, as I am currently working on a beautiful cottage pillow with pretty rose barkcloth, so keep any eye out for that one to be listed in my Ebay shoppe soon :)
