What does ER stand for?? Well I guess it could stand for several things.

But the most common use, when we see the letters ER, we know they stand for Emergency Room

On Sunday afternoon, I was staying with my mother in law and we both took a tumble. Thankfully my mil is fine but I ended up taking a little ride in an ambulance, strapped down like a cocoon, and payed my first visit to the Emergency Room. After several hours and some xrays, it was determined that I have a compression fracture of t11.

So my friends, I will be out of commission for a little while. I am writing this under the influence of pain medication, but I don't think I will be able to sit at the computer for any length of time. Please remember me in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy and complete recovery. I love hearing from each of you but if I do not respond to your comments, you will know why.

Let me know what you are up to, as I am able to read my emails and comments on my iTouch.

Take care!

This is Vintage for sure!

This is NOT my Vintage thingie, but when my hubby and I were out last week, we saw this little beauty parked in a parking lot.

My hubby thinks it is probably from the 1930''s.

Vintage Rolls!!!

Can you imagine driving this to the local grocery store??

Please join me and visit the other great vintage thingies at Coloradolady's Vintage Thingie Thursday.

The next step - finding a mantle we liked.

Adding a hearth.

New tile and a paint job.

The completed fireplace.

Blue VTT

As we have been packing up for our move, I've come across several vintage things that I've always loved.

Case in point is this blue breakfast set that I found at an antique mall in Georgia.

I fell in love with this set the moment I laid eyes on it. It is made in England and has all the components for a lovely breakfast. Cereal bowl, covered dish, egg cup, cup and saucer, coffee pot and creamer & sugar.

What are we waiting for, let's eat :-)

Please join Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday. So many lovely vintage things to see and enjoy.

Words to Live By

How precious also are Thy thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with Thee.

VTT - Brownie fun

It is always fun to participate in Vintage Thingie Thursday. With our move, I have not had a lot of time to really show some of my fun finds. But today I thought I would share these cameras that my daughter has collected.

I know she has several more, but these were the only two that I had captured recently.

Please be sure to stop by Coloradolady's blog and visit the other fun Vintage Thingies.

Another fun trip

On another trip to my favorite store "Southern Hospitality" new fun vignettes were on display.

I think this was my favorite one.

It's so fun to shop at Southern Hospitality. Not only do they have accents for the home, they also have floral supplies and pretty reasonable furniture. Creativity abounds!
