May 11, Vintage Angels

Smiling Sally's Blue Mondays  Meme

I bought these little angels from an estate sale this weekend
for $3.00. I thought they were cute enough to leave out
I got the milk glass ice bucket or cookie jar from a
flea market for  8.00.
My husband and I went to an estate sale today where they were selling
everything in the house because they were tearing down the old beautiful
brick home and putting up three new homes. What a waste! 
We bought three flats of precious moments.  Also my husband
accidentally bid on a flat of depression glass and won it!  Oh well we
did get a set of beautiful crystal bowls that kind of match the new
lamps we bought at another sale.  We really just need to stay home
more often. Ha ha!

May 4th Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.

Joining in on the fun at Smiling Sally's Blue Monday Meme

Mom and Dad celebrated 62 years of marriage on May 2nd.
As some of you know my Dad was sent home in January under
hospice care from the hospital. He has had congestive heart failure
for over 10 years and many other medical problems but
just keeps going. He is definitely my hero and a very strong man.
He takes what ever life has in store for him in good stride.
My Mom has been a pillar of strength for him too.
She is always there to take care of her hubby.
This is his favorite red, white and blue jacket.
The poor guy is always cold. He was in the Coast Guard
for about three years and loves to talk about where he traveled
and also collects model trains. My Mom loves to read and watch Wheel of
Fortune.  She also loves chatting on the phone with her girl friends!
I love them both very much!

Happy Monday!

Smiling Sally's ~ Blue Monday Meme

This is a photo of our pond from last summer.
We are getting it ready again for the spring.
In doing so we always go shopping at a little pond and garden shop in
St Louis, called Chalily.  We found some cute stuff there and I really
want to start a fairy garden like the one pictured below.
We did buy a koi spitter statue and a few other little things.
Any of you all have a fairy garden? I thought it would be fun to 
do with Miss Lily.

This is Fairy Garden that they had set up at Chalily.
Very cute!

Blues Blue Monday

I thought this was a cool photo of St Louis getting 
ready to celebrate the St Louis Blue Hockey Team.
I love how the Arch is showing in the background.
Hope you had a great weekend, mine went way too fast.

Enjoying this wonderful weather!
