OH WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY !
I started the day with a sunny walk to Tim Horton's for Breakfast with 2 special girls . My bagel & cream cheese was wonderful , the fruit yogurt was delish!! Spending time with my family could not more enjoyable .
Finishing a few projects , taking pictures and enjoying the sunshine .
Could not ask for a better day !!!
Taking a pics of my "oldie but goodies from the past " my junking expedition
My collection of milk glass , hobnob milk glass that I have been collecting for 3 months now . It started with a $ 12.00 Vase ( I know I paid too much now ) . I just can't leave them at the store . A few lamps with shades are missing ( 4 to be exact ) . I just found a yellow milk glass Hobnob yesterday - I couldn't believe it !!
OH NO , will my obsession go to other colours now ??
Happy Painting , Refinishing and repurposing !
Enjoy every minute of your day creating what is important to you !!
