A Little Shopping and Time With Family

Oh boy! The lilacs are in bloom right now so I just couldn't resist picking a bunch for my home.

Kind of like bringing a little Spring indoors.

I was able to hit a few estate sales this week-end.

On Friday there was a real good estate sale but alas I had to work and couldn't make it until after 12:00.

I managed to pick up a few items but visualized all the wonderful things that were probably in that house.

Here are a few of the finds I found this week-end.

I love the graphics on this old box. Fortunately, I was able to take off the price tag, that was smack dab on the front, without tearing up the box.

I finished up a table also.

It started out brown but I replaced that with white paint and added vintage wallpaper under the glass.

Saturday afternoon we headed for Eugene to celebrate birthdays with family.

Here is my niece Sarah, she celebrated her 7th birthday!

And this "cutie-patootie" is my grandniece.

It was so fun seeing her.

These little ones grow up so fast.

Below is Maya and her Uncle Caden.

Maya's Aunt Sarah got a bicycle helmet for her birthday.

It was a hit!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I always appreciate hearing from you.

I love that little ottoman with the ruffle, and of course the mirror. It sounds like you had a great time with those darling little ones.
