Happy Monday Morning

Just a little picture of my hydrangea plant.

This is the first day my girls are out for the summer. I officially have a Eighth Grader and Senior in High School.

I don't have to wake up at 5 o'clock anymore. I am not going to sleep in to late. I love the morning. First thing is my coffee with a little etsy and some Blogs!
I just bought a few things from littlepinkstudio.etsy.com. Pink and Blue goodies. I have never tried German Glitter. I hear "Once you try that, you can't go back"........

I so love these flowers. The pink ones are my favorite. They were in a big cigar box. I am sure they would retail for over 20 dollars. The red ones in the background are the same age and style as the pink ones.

Have been feeling under the weather these past couple of days. Right before I left for Atlanta I found these neat little chairs. This is the first pattern I have ever bought.

I got Tiffany a plate and bowl of old fiestaware in sunflower yellow .
A cute drinking glass with flowers and a cute little blue green candle holder. She has two dogs so i included an apron just for that it is water proof. One of my first ever tin finds matched perfect and she likes tins. She loves to scrapbook, so I was excited to find the book for just one dollar and threw that in along with flower stickers and material inside the basket.
