Today is a beautiful day except for the rain, which my garden is enjoying and now I don't have to go out in 90 something weather to do it. I hope everyone is doing well and having a fun summer. I have been busy cleaning and doing more organizing to keep my mind busy and my spirit up, because I have reached the bottom and there is no way but up. I've got several projects sorted out and as soon as my teeth are pulled and the pain gone, I think the craft fever will strike.

Wanted to share some of my great finds and some that I have collected over the years.

As you can see I love milk glass and have boxes stored in the attic, but most of it is for my daughter Chris from my mom years ago. The lamp was free and the vase came from my mom when she gave Chris some. The 2 little pieces were 59cents each and you can see the blue come through.

I also love beads and buttons, so I am always on the lookout for strange jars or containers. The big one is filled with 185 drops and little medallions and I have yet to decide what to do with them.

I love anything green whether it is old or not, but I have a few very old pieces and I love the pink ware now, but it's so hard to find here and when you do, well let's just say, gas comes first.

I have no idea what the little stand was for but found these vintage plates and they fit perfect, but still looking for something else to put on it. Now this lamp was a great bargain for $2.00 and the shade is heavy plastic that almost looks and smells like bakeware, but will have to research that. I also found a clear one, but not sure what I did with it. The creamer and sugar was bought at a gift shop in 1967 as a gift for my mom for Christmas and I'm glad she gave it back to me. The tray is missing and not sure what happened to it, but it was bought seperate from the set, so it may be in the attic.

My Joys Today
God has blessed me with another day.

I have a mortage to pay, so I have a house.

I have a phone, therefore I can speak with my
children when I am lonesome.

I have a computer, therefore, I have a circle of
cyber sisters who keep me in
their prayers and I too for them.

I still have some members of my family who love me
just as God made me.

I pray each day that you are thankful for the many blessings that we over look each day. It has been a rough 8 years for me, but God has helped me carry my crosses when they became too heavy and I cherish each one He has given me, because He knows my weaknesses and my strengths. May you all be blessed with whatever He brings into your life. I think it's a test of our faith and our humanity, compassion, and love. Big Hugs, Pat

I love milk glass too!! Have you seen my collections on my blog? I have many pieces that were my Mom's.
I am tickled whenever I find a piece somewhere for next to nothing because someone young is selling off their Mom or Grandma's stuff and thinks it is ugly!! I enjoyed looking at your collections very much :)
