Mirror Mirror on the Wall


Hi girls, just a quick post.  Took this shot of a wall in my home a few days ago.  Love the different mirrors together.  Can't remember if i posted a shot of this before or not.  Have a great Sunday.  We're off to the Air Show.  Bye for now.   Cindy

Fair Flop!

Hi all, well here it is half way through another week, doesn't time just fly.  i think the older you get, the faster it goes.  Nothing much exciting in my week, just been catching up on the household cleaning after spending the past couple of weeks painting and crafting, getting ready for the Fair we did last Sunday.  Things didn't go as according to plan for the organisers and the numbers were really down, so all us stallholders had a very quite and unprofitable day.  Although, it was another lesson learnt, and we did meet some lovely people, so not all was lost.  Thought i would show you a few shots i took after we set up.  I hope you're all having a great week.

Birdhouses!!!!! and THAT DENTIST VISIT... Grrrrh!

Hi all, well i'm here to talk about it, so it mustn't have been that bad!  I survived the visit to the dentist.  Mind you, he only had a look and didn't do anything so that was alright.  That comes later.  But, that word, SEDATION, was like music to my ears. Although, i have to have another visit in a couple of weeks, but thats only to talk too, so i'm sure i will get throught that one as well.  I won't tell you though how my husband had to speak to the dentist for me, because the tears wouldn't stop, nor the uncontrollable shaking and that i couldn't get my mouth open to speak.  But after a few minutes of the Dentist telling me that we were "only going to talk today", then i settled down. Bring on the SEDATION.  My favourite word.
I also wanted to show you some birdhouses my husband made for an upcoming market we are doing at a local Fair this weekend.  Some before and after shots.

It's a bit hard to see with these photo's but the rooftops are pale pink, pale green, and blue.
Also, i added a decal to this metal bucket. 

Have a great weekend all.

DREADED DENTIST - HELP!!!!!!

Hi ladies, the time has come....MY BIGGEST FEAR IN LIFE ...the Dentist is calling.   Please some-one save me!
My husband made the dreaded call today to the dentist.  I have to find the courage between now and Friday to walk through those doors.  I'm not sure how i'm going to do it yet,but i'm sure i will find a thousand different excuses not to go.  I have a phobia for the dentist.  I would rather have 4 more children than lay back in that chair. Am i the only chicken out there?  Just the thought of it brings me to tears. I've cried so many tears in the past few weeks just thinking about it, but another health issue has forced me to get it over and done with. Anyone have any good recipes for drinking through a straw?  I would appreciate them. Anyway, there you have it, i have finally written the words, hoping this will psych me up.  I've waffled on enough. I hope you all have a good week, i will be trying to check out as many beautiful blogs as i can to take my mind off it.  Have a good one.
Hugs Cindy

New Found Treasures

 Hi Ladies, just a short note to say hi to you all.  I haven't done a post in a while, time just gets away.  We were going to do markets this Sunday with all our Shabby items, but have now decided instead of having Treasure we are going to sell Trash.  Having a big clean out around the house, so it will be another busy week getting it all together.  At least i won't be painting furniture the night before the markets while my hubby is trying to pack the trailer.  Just old pre - loved things, clothes, books etc.  I will probably be amazed at what i find while i clean out cupboards and the garage.  Anyway, here are a few pieces i picked up in the past couple of weeks.
A Gorgeous Pin Cushion
A beautiful Condiment dish.

And these sweet little silver salt & pepper shakers.


Have a great week!
