Welcome

Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Sunny and cold here in Georgia

Mark was called to Germany this week for meetings so Clarice and I are home alone! Wahoo!!!  There's been a little too much time together lately especially when Mark's under tremendous stress so this time apart will be much  appreciated for all of us. I dropped him off at the airport yesterday and then had a little retail/thrifty therapy.  It was a good day but I'll let you be the judge.  I have a huge thing for pewter/silver baby cups so I added these 2 to my collection for 55cents each!  That's right boys and girls, I said 55 cents.  My collection started with my Mom's cup which is truly an ancient antique (ha,ha Momma just kidding) and then I acquired my youngest brother's and Mark's then I started picking them up at estate sales but these are the first ones I found at a thrift store. 

 
 
I also found this cute little flower frog for $1.00 so of course, it had to come home with me at that price.
 
I also scored these wonderful pewter weighted candlesticks
 
 
And lastly my favorite find was this double candle stick because I've never seen one like it before.  Anyone know anything about this one?
 
All this prim goodness was bought for less than $20 so what a terrific score!
 
I have been looking for a "coffee table" for years to put in the living room.  I have tried several different things thru the years but when I saw this little table at an estate sale a few weeks ago, I knew I'd found it!  This estate sale was the same one where I got the cross stitch stuff so I got a good deal on the table.......I got it for $15 and I think it's just perfect especially at that price.
 
And I'll finish up with a picture of my favorite find EVER!
 
It's cold here so Donna D and I are going to a movie this afternoon so I need to get my shower, straighten up the house and get ready to go.  Hope you guys have a wonderful Wednesday!
