 Do you ever wonder about the conversations your neighbors have about you?  I was pondering this as I cut these branches from my Bradford Pear tree in the rain this afternoon. {They are BUDDING!!!}  Mine probably didn't think it was strange at all.  Let's just say they have seen worse.  Like on a 30 degree day in November when I was putting dead branches in metal buckets. The lady next door came over and as she watched me said: "Now honey, you know they ain't gonna come back to life right?" Little did she know how pretty they looked at the Christmas Open House painted silver with little white lights. 

Yesterday when she came over she didn't even ask why I was growing grass in my picture window.  Hey,this girl just needs a little green in her life right now~you can have some too~these little guys will be at the shop this weekend.  Hope to see YOU this Friday and Saturday!Hurry up Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots and lots of new treasures this week...

What a great week I've had~perfect weather and super junkin finds make me one happy girlie! David, Olivia  and I shopped till we dropped last weekend and have filled the shop with some super new finds. Haven't you just been LOVING this weather?  Got lots done this week, I even started raking my leaves. Yes, I know that should have been done about 4 months ago. I even started some seedlings in my sunny picture window. Why am I gabbing, you ask?  Well, these pictures are taking forever to load.  I think I'll just have a couple of rasberry filled Krispy Kremes  a cup of coffee while I wait.  OK, finally, here we go...
 This sweet rolling buffet/server is made by White Furniture. Gotta love pretty AND functional pieces
 We've got a pair of these lovely mirrors...
 Another great piece~would make a great vanity, buffet, desk...the possibillities are endless~

 I had  fun with some burlap coffee sacks I found last weekend~

 Absolutely precious vintage dresses~and in GREAT condition
 It's almost garden season...
 Buy the chairs and the table and this entire beachy dining set is only $350~

This green chippy metal folding chair is probably my favorite find of the week~

 Beautiful, depression era dining set~now on sale for $375
 New merchandise arriving weekly at the Cottage...
