Birdhouses & More

I am so excited to share some more goodies that I received while at my parents home.  As I had mentioned in a previous post…… my parents are getting ready for a garage sale so my Mom was nice enough to offer me some items and well I took her up on her offer (lol).  She offered me many birdhouses and well, I snatched them up rather quickly.  Here are a few pictures of the birdhouses.  I might give one of them a facelift, but I am not quite sure yet.  I’ll let you know.

My Mom also went out with one of her very good friends not too long ago and purchased this for me.  I have been wanting one for my flowerbed, but haven’t been able to find one.  My Mom found this at a flea market for $30.00.  I can’t wait til next summer to plant some flowers in it and place it in my flowerbed.  Don’t you think it will just look too cute and prim?


Mom also gave me these goodies.    I am telling you……. she is as good as any prim store (lol).  You gotta love these dried gourds and the watermelon with the crow.  Aren’t they great items.  I am so lucky!!

I love this basket that she gave me as well.  This will go on my front door, but if for some reason or another it doesn’t look right then we will look for another home, but I love the basket.  It is filled with some great items and I just love the birds nest with the eggs.


Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing some more of my goodies.  I also wanted to share some more exciting kitchen news with all of you.  I was planning on making my very own farm table, but my wonderful Mom surprised me on Thursday and told me that she was going to buy me a farm table at my favorite primitive shop “North Shore Primitives.”  So, if all goes ok today and there is no rain around then we will be heading to pick it up sometime today.  So, be sure to Stay Tuned for pictures of my beautiful black trestle table.  Trust me…….. you will love it!  Until Next Time……..

Lisa, your are sooo lucky to have a mom that first of all loves the same stuff you do and second of all that shares her wares with you! My mom and I used to trade things back and forth all the time. It was fun and I miss doing that since I no longer have her with me. Cherish those moments! I love the laundry tubs and can't wait to see your table! Jayne

Lisa, you just enjoy every single second that you are together with your Mom. I have the most wonderful memories of my Mom and I together and all of the things that we shared...but most of all - each other. I miss mine so much.

A table for your kitchen? How sweet is that? Your Mom is a blessing to you.

Have fun and I can't wait to see the table!

Girl, you are getting that kitchen all fixed nice. You truly are so blessed to have your Mom as your best friend. You make memories everyday and enjoy those days you get to spend together. My mom is wonderful too, and is my best friend but now has alzheimers and it has robbed us of so much. It is a cruel disease and I pray daily for a cure. I have my Mom physically, but I miss HER so much. I took care of her as long as I could meet her needs but then had to move her to a local Nursing Home, where I am very involved with her care on a daily basis.
Give your Mom a big hug and have a good week, my friend.
Hugs, Sherrie
