A NEW DAY! NEW MERCIES!
















Who says you can not make life long friends on blogs? I received many emails from dear friends about my day, yesterday. Your words were so kind, I am truly grateful. What began as a blog to myself, has grown friendships. Thank you.

Isn't my new blog beautiful? Debbi at Pretty Blogs by CGT Designs did it for me. She is so sweet and kind. She listens, even when I do not have a clue what I am talking about. If you ever want a new look, Debbi is your gal. She has helped me with things that others may think are easy, never a complain, just sweet. I wanted a fall look and she did it perfect!

I told you a few days ago that I was going to show you a few items I picked up this weekend. Here they are. They were all dirt cheap, just how I like them. That candlewick punch bowl with platter was only $12. It would have been just a sin to pass it up! I also added a button for this new magazine, Flea Market Style. They have a blog with a lot of good information for "yard sale aficionados". Take a peek, it is new and should be very good.
