July 4th Mantel 2017


Having fun decorating for the Fourth of July
and going to estate sales. I love the fenton milk glass
I found and the little hummel angel too.



She is so adorable. She is a full bee German hummel
according to the marking and I found her for $3





My grand daughter Lily registered at the library where I work for summer
reading. So much for the kiddos to do and great prizes. I think as a
district we have registered over 30 thousand readers and it isn't even
over yet!



Don't forget to register on my post here for my a book prize!

It's a beautiful summer on Sullivan's Island, and Marietta Muir has brought her three granddaughters together for a retreat for the first time in many years. Author and narrator Mary Alice Munroe delivers a charming, emotional, and funny performance that will appeal to female listeners of all ages. Munroe knows her characters like no one else could, and her portrayals of the summer girls are subtle, realistic, carefully crafted, and pitch-perfect.

Teddy Bear Room

 So as most of you know. I have an auction and estate sale issue...always
going to them. Ha Ha! Anyway when Lily and Stephanie moved out
with all their furniture we had to find some fast.
I had this old white iron bed from my Great Granny! Now four generations
have slept in it! At least.
I found most of the bears at estate sales or auctions.
And some cute nursery rhyme collectible plates.
In the corner is one of my curio cabinets full of Precious Moments!
I so need a new camera. I thought my new iphone would take better
photos.  Or maybe it is just the operator of the camera doesn't know
what she is doing.
