New Light at the Cabin

Hubby says it looks like a garage lamp....but he put it up for me anyways!  I bought one of those old looking light bulbs.  It is fantastic in person.  I love the valance also.  I found it at Anna's Linens.  The top picture shows the little pulley that holds the cord.  LOVE!

I have a new light ordered for the little dining area, but it is on back order.  So, that could be a while!

I am back!

I have been at our cabin.  Celebrated my birthday!  It is amazing that it was a year ago that I had my 60th party out on our you remember?

First of all, I am sorry that my posts are far between, but I do not have internet at the cabin.  That is good and bad....but I can go to the community hall and get it there, but we have been so busy, I just didn't!

Mesa has a new store, and I thought I would take some pictures.  It is a salvage store only open 3 days a month....but that is good because some of us need that time to recuperate. It is the Brick House.  It took me a bit to find, but well worth it.

Sorry if some of the pictures are blurry....but I was hyperventilating!

This is the ladies restroom....the skirt around the sink is burlap.

Oh, Lord, keep my little money in my purse.....

This was pricey, but so unusual.....I would LOVE that in the bathroom at the cabin.

After I paid....they gave me a heart cookie from a nearby bakery.

They will be open again on the 12th of March, I will be there!

Ok, I also went to a couple of garage sales and found...

Two of these chairs for $15.00 each for our AZ room at the cabin.

Oh, and you all know about simplifying.....It is going so well (snicker) that I bought this mirror.  Now you KNOW I needed it. (yeah, right??)  But I have never seen a dresser mirror on a stand.  I plan on painting the stand.  It was $5.00. 

Ok, I should quit.  I have more.  See you in a couple of days!!  Have a good week!!

Happy Valentine's Day My Fellow Bloggers!

Okay, I admit it.  I am all over Valentine's day.  I love all the so called HYPE and my honey can give me chocolates, balloons, cards, and flowers all he wants!!

I had a couple of friends over for lunch....

Here is a few shots of my table.....

Oh my goodness, these items are so old now, but I do not need to add anymore.

It was a fun luncheon....I made a salad that Pioneer Woman gave on her show.

Well, I will be quiet for a few days.....But I will visit when I can......

Happy HEART day!  I pray that each of you have a loved one you can share it with!!

Love me as I am.....

You know, sometimes life just gets busy.  I got some good news from my oncologist.  My cancer counts have gone down on this new trial, and I am feeling well.  And enjoying life.

I told you that we bought a new park model up in Payson.  We have gone every weekend to do some updating.  It is turning out quite nice.

Oh I am so thankful!  We enjoy this so much!

This is the bedroom window.  I am crazy in love with the valance and shutters.

This is the AZ room.  I am not done yet, but I can tell you this is going to be a favorite room of mine!

This is our new stove.  The original stove was still there and my husband did not feel comfortable with it.  It needs a new refrig too, but one thing at a time!

I usually don't show myself without hair, but honestly, my own hair, white as it can be is growing in and I don't want to wear a wig anymore.  The picture is to show my beautiful orange necklace and earrings my dear friend sent me for my birthday coming up.  She knows I love these kind of hoops and the color orange.  Then I went to the store and found....

I was tickled.

So, sorry if you don't care for the semi hair look, but like I me as I am.  This is the real life!!

I Heart!

I have always loved Valentine's Day!  It is followed by my birthday, and many birthday celebrations were incorporated with Valentine's decor.

I made a little gift for 2 of my friends.  It is a little journal from the Dollar Tree with a candy bar.  I just wrapped the bar with red and white papers.  Then I made a fan bow and glued on some snips of lace.  The tags were premade from Michaels.  I hope they enjoy them.
