Hello Everyone ~ it's been awhile since I have blogged! Many of you know that I have been busy with my Mom who is visiting me from Canada. She arrived on March 18th and we were having such a good time that she extended her visit by two weeks. Now she only has until Saturday and we are feeling like her six week visit isn't long enough! It's a good thing we get along ~ it sure has been lovely to have been able to spend all of this wonderful time together.

You may have noticed that the web site has been a little bit slack lately! I guess that's what happens when you have company. We have been running around lot and have just been enjoying each other's company. Next week I will be back at it getting more listings on the web site. I have so many lovely things for you!

Last week I repainted our bedroom. The room was in an uproar for three days, but now it is back together and looking beautiful ~ in my opinion! I will take some pics next week and post them on the blog for you to see. We also bought a new gazebo for the summer and I will take some pics of that as well. It is a very heavy duty one that is bolted into the concrete on our patio ~ it gets quite windy here where we live! I decorated the inside of it today with floral garlands on the inside of the roof. It also has a chandelier! ~ I had an interesting one in the basement that was a little bit modern and I wasn't using it so Wade wired it up into the gazebo and it looks fabulous! It will be quite a treat this summer to have it!

I hope everyone is having a nice spring so far. Be sure to check in next week on the web site around the 1st of May when I will be listing lots of lovely new treasures for you!

One more thing ~ I am on a quest! Does anyone out there know where I can find a fabulous king sized bed skirt that has at least a 25" drop? My bed is huge and those skimpy skirts just don't cut it! I want it to puddle on the floor! Any suggestions would be really appreciated! I might have to break down and make one myself. (*_*) Email me or post a comment if you know of any that I might be interested in. Thank you ladies ~ so long for now!

Sweet New Cottage Treasures

Here are some of the newest treasures that have been added to our Cottage Treasures and Vintage Finds sections of our web site. We have some really lovely stuff on right now with more to come! Mom and I visited my favorite antique mall late last week and we found some very pretty treasures! Mom is busy ironing linens for me ~ thank you! (*_*) I hate that job! I have so much stuff to list right now, I just have to find time to do it all.

My Mom has extended her stay and is not going back to Canada now until the 28th of this month! Yeah! We felt that time was running out and we weren't doing all that we wanted to do (not that ironing was in her game plan!) so she decided to stay for two more weeks than planned. Works for me!

Saturday was my birthday and it was a great day ~ hot as blazes out! We took a drive up to Park City and braved the outlet mall. Big mistake! It was packed and we didn't stay long. Then it was over to Heber City for dinner at Chick's Diner, a little old diner that has apparently been around for 40+ years. The food is amazing. I love it! Then it was down Provo Canyon and then back home to Riverton. My Mom bought me a gorgeous Royal Doulton figurine for my birthday...the first one I've ever owned. So lovely! My hubby had ME order my birthday present ~ a yummy big pink crock pot from JC Penney. It will arrive this week. Can't wait! The first birthday too without my felt funny...a year of firsts I guess, BUT it was a great birthday! (*_*)
