I'm Back... Finds & My Visit...

Finally I have some time
to sit down and share with ya'll!

I have been keeping up
(to a point)
with your blog posts,
creations and emails..

But, I still feel I'm behind somehow!

I visited my booth yesterday
to put more things inside
and totally forgot my camara!

I am going back tomorrow,
and promise to bring my camara.
In fact, my camara is already
in my purse, so I don't forget!

I also did a little thrifting
and antiquing yesterday.

Here are a few of my finds:

Sweet little step ladder...

Laundry bag and
HUGE basket...

This is a mirror, but,
I got a jumpstart on it
this morning and already
took the mirror out
before I took the picture...

I scored all of these
blue Ball jars for FREE!
(My sweet gramma gave
them to me...
Thanks Gramma!!)

I found this Raspberry Soda
bottle top advertisment.

2 metal vintage picture frames
an antique mirror and brush..

Close up of the brush..

I also wanted to share
this picture of my Gramma...

I visited with my Gramma
when I took a trip to
Michigan a week ago.

She's in a home, and hooked up
to oxygen 24/7 now.
(insert sad face here.)

She always enjoyed the beach,
and I can remember her
taking me to the beach
when I was a kid quite often..

Soo, being that she is on oxygen
and in a wheel chair,
Mr. Ruffles & I decided that
if she can't get to the beach
we'd take the beach to her!!

We took a kiddie pool
and filled it with beach sand,
a bucket & shovel, pinwheels
and a beach ball.
We even found a citronella candle
that looked like a mug of frosty beer!!

She thought it was real at first
and pulled up her nose... hehehe!

I also saw my 3 year old grandson
on the other side of the state.
I had a blast with him
swimming, shopping and sidewalk chalking..

That's my son and my grandson..
Love those kids!!!

I had a great time in my
homestate of Michigan..

But, it's soooo good to be home!
