Well, here in Michigan we've been hit with another major Winter storm, arrgghhhh!! It arrived here yesterday around 1 p.m., and continued snowing until the middle of the night. I literally had to shove the back door enough to be able to squeeze thru to get outside so I could shovel our back sidewalk, as the snow came up way past my knees! Just when we had most of the snow gone from the last snow storm, another one had to replace it all (darn Mother Nature, lol!)
Last Friday I went and visited my local Antique mall in a neighboring town, and found a couple of things that just HAD to come back home with me :)
First up is this Gorgeous Morgan Jones Chenille bedspread, in the PERFECT shade of pink! The above photo shows it beautifully displayed on my Victorian Bed ~ the photo below shows you a close-up of the bedspread...
...here's the tag...
next is this lovely vintage embroidered lace doily..
and a pair of Embroidered Tea towels...these will go in our Main bathroom...I'm planning to make some changes in there, opting to remove the wallpaper (which doesn't like to stay up on the walls too well), and painting the walls and installing new floor tiles. This endeavor won't happen 'till later in the Spring.
So, are there any Nascar fans out there? If so, did you watch the Daytona 500 Sunday? You bet I did!! I am very sad that my driver, Jeff Gordon, didn't win his 4th Daytona 500, but I am so stoked that Trevor Bayne did ~ this kid just turned 20 years old on Saturday, and this race was ONLY his 2nd Cup race; FIRST time in the 500, and he WINS IT!! I was literally off my chair, yelling at the T.V., telling him "block those guys behind you!!" and "OH MY GOD, he's going to win this thing!!" My son Austin was like "Geez Mom, calm down", LOL :) Yes, I can really get totally into the race :) I really wish that Trevor Bayne was running a full Cup schedule, as it would be so fun to watch and see how he does, but he's committed himself to run full time in the Nationwide serious, but he will be doing about 17 Cup races. Can ya tell that I am sooo excited to have Nascar racing back!! LOL :)
Okay, that's about it for todays post ~ Wishing everyone a wonderful Week ahead! Until next time sweet friends :)
