...but first, Tea!


Hi there, Friends! Have you had a relaxing weekend? The last few weeks have been quite busy so I chose a quiet weekend at home.  Puttered in the garden, caught up on a little reading and binge-watched Netflix ... but first, tea!

Friday's Find #160


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I spent part of the rainy weekend splashing through the puddles to a few sales. First, I went to the sale of several sisters who evidently were quilters. Silly me, wondered if anyone else would be out in the rain or if the sale may have even been cancelled altogether. Ha! There was barely standing room in the packed garage. They were selling tons of fat quarters and crafting supplies and everything was $1. I'd picked out several things and was actually standing in line when I saw bags of Indian corn in this old crock. The corn was priced but the crock didn't appear to be for sale, but of course, I had to ask. Good thing I did-- I got the crock and all of the corn inside for $3! Happy dance!

Creamy Chilled Avocado Soup: The 15 Minute Fix


Happy Wednesday Friends! I think most of us are longing for fall, especially when it comes to weather, right? Recently, frequent rain has cooled the Texas heat slightly but realistically we are probably looking at a good month or more of summer temperatures. Once it cools down, I love to make soup but since we're not there yet, today's 15 Minute Fix will help beat the heat. It's a delicious creamy chilled avocado soup that's healthy, won't heat up the kitchen and ready in 15 minutes!

Spa on Wheels Repurposed Yard Sale Cart


Hi there, Friends! Today I'm sharing the fun makeover of a recent yard sale find that I styled with even more thrifted finds, which of course, is the way I like to do it. I've paired vintage accents with glitzy gold to create a glamorous spa that pampers with the option of rolling it to any room your heart desires!

Friday's Find #159


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! One of the best things about summer is the abundance of yard sales and I hit several great ones where I scored this week's fabulous finds. Anytime I see an ornate Italian frame like this one, I grab it. I decorate with them throughout my home, so it's a keeper!

Farmhouse Fabulous Vintage Basket Upcycle


Happy Wednesday, Friends!  Over the weekend I picked up a vintage basket at one of my favorite thrift stores.  I really love deep baskets for pretty storage especially those with lids, which are harder to come by. All it needed was a little love...

Fairy Tale Express Repurposed Miniature Garden


Hi there, Friends!  When I discovered this vintage cake topper at a yard sale a few months ago, I wasn't sure just how I might use it. I only knew that I was inexplicably drawn to it and I've learned from experience that those are the pieces I regret leaving behind and so it came home with me.

Friday's Find #157


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Most of this week's fabulous finds were scored at a new place that I'll be adding to my list of weekly haunts.  Actually, it's more of a makeover of a store I used to shop regularly. I had stopped going because the inventory rarely changed, but Reruns is now Finds on a Hanger and Clearance Warehouse and they had all kinds of goodies and great displays arranged according to seasons. At their grand opening, I saw my friend Audrey and knowing my affection for Lefton collectibles, she pointed out these adorable bunnies.  I already have a matching white pair, so these are Available.

Herbed Whole Wheat Pizza Crust


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Today I'm sharing another one of my family's favorite recipes. When my kids were growing up, I made pizza featuring this crust every week--usually for family movie night.  When Favorite Son requested it for his last birthday, it occurred to me that I've never shared it with you before, so here it is...
