A little step stool…….


I found this little step stool while out junking the other day.

It was just too darn cute to pass up!


It has a cute little patch on one of the legs

and multiple layers of paint.


Gracie was insistent that she be in the photos today!

My poor girl has allergies really bad…..


I also found this concrete piece……..

I swear it weighs like 40 lbs. it is so heavy for such a small piece!

The Panda Cam…..


Occasionally I check out the San Diego Panda Cam.

There is just something about these cuties that is so relaxing to watch.

You can’t help but smile when you see them!

It’s like the scene in Anne of Avonlea where she is picking apples in the orchard before she meets Gilbert.

Pitch pot candle……


Untitled 3

I picked up this cute little pitch pot a couple of months ago while out junking. I just adore the shape of the little pitch pots and have several in my collection now.

Untitled 1

This one still had the wire hanger attached when I found it. At first I couldn’t find a spot to hang it so I placed it on the French baker’s rack in the kitchen with a bird nest in it. Finally the other day I decided to take the wire hanger off and add a candle…….I have no idea why I didn’t think of that sooner?!?!?!

Untitled 4

It was the perfect size for the little table in the living room next to the wing chair. I didn’t notice the name  J Meyer on the bottom of the pot when I first bought it. I wonder, is that the maker of the pot or the person the pot was made for?

Have a great week my friends!

Happy first day of Autumn!


Vermont in the Fall!



Descending leaves fall to the ground,
Twirling, twisting, round and round,
Autumn season is almost here,
The smell of freshness is oh so near.
The crisp, cool breeze,
Shakes the leaves from the trees,
Autumn takes away the green,
Golden-bronze and brown is all that can be seen.

Love is not needing a snooze button on your alarm clock
because when it goes off the first time in the morning
the thoughts of your loved one
make it impossible to fall back asleep.
