GONE BATTY!












Can you believe I got lost in my own neighborhood this weekend? I was looking for an estate sale, all I found was deers! Just when you think you have traveled every road in your area, you find a new one. I went up and down this street until I was calling the deers by their first names! I am so a City Gal, I had to show you the deer pictures! (Like you have never seen a deer! Duh!) I felt like I was going Batty!

Never did find that sale, I did, however, find an estate sale when I was not looking. Don't you love it when that happens? The pictures are of some of the treasures I purchased. The rose plate has such beautiful colors. The pinks and the greens are creamy. I think that is my favorite combination of colors. I will probably use it again for Pink Saturday, I love it so much.

Are you liking the cool weather? I am loving the cooler weather, however, it makes me feel like the Tin Man. It feels like all my joints need to be oiled. That is how most of my winter months feel like. I need to get use to it, all over. One good thing, I don't need to water outside as much! I usually do that in the morning, which in the damp months, are my worst time. Just call me the Tin Man!

I had Noah today, look at his feet and mine. We are both flat footed! Thought that would give you a laugh! Hope all is well with you wonderful ladies! Blessings, Martha

Hello my tincan lady friend. Ha! I love to look at deer. We live in an area where we get to see some deer several times a year and everytime we stop and stare. Looks like you found some great deals at the estate sale. I am glad you found that as you could not find the one you were looking for!
Blessings Always!

Hi Ms. Tin Can (Wo)Man! Glad to hear that you are out and about and doing fine. Love all your great finds! The little tea set is adorable! No matter how many times you've seen deer, it is nice to see wildlife in their natural setting. Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday! :) Tammy

Hi again Martha. I haven't officially joined Blue Monday although I should. I didn't join Pink Saturday or White Wednesday either -- but I just keep blogging it all. Another blogging friend out there did send me the details for signing up -- I just haven't tried it yet. I'll see if I can send them to you. Hope you are having a great day! :) Tammy

Hi Martha! Well, at least you wound up with some beautiful dishes...and some nice shots of the deer :) I like driving my husband's company car to estate sales, because he has GPS and I am notorious for getting lost easily!

I love baby feet, even if they are flat footed! At least you were able to find a sale this weekend,even if you had to wade through the deer to find it! You found some beauties at the sale you did manage to find. It's been cooler here too, down in the 30's at night. I like the cooler days, heat in the 90's is too hot for me.
I'm just dreading the rains that will arrive any day and stay until june-ick! Have a pretty night!
