Memories and Treasures

It's been a few weeks since I have posted and I would like to thank all of you that have offered your prayers and support during this tragic time. Your kind posts have been a great comfort to me and my family. The police have given the name of a "person of interest" but so far no arrests have been made. Please keep us in your prayers and pray that they will get the person that did this off of the streets.

I've tried to log in daily to check in on the blogs that I follow, it has been a quiet refuge for me these past weeks. Here are few pictures of some favorite finds from earlier this summer. I loved this old magazine, and it was just purrfect for me; imagine kittens and sewing all together on one cover.

This isn't a real good picture but this is a great red plaid bib apron, it fits right into my collection of old aprons.

I can never find enough baskets and this one is just perfect.

And now another birdbath story.

Some of you may remember my post about Miss Pattie's birdbath last winter. Well leave it to my dear brother. Just several weeks before he passed he came home and said "you know that other birdbath base that you have. The one that looks like the old tree; that you've been upset about for years because you could never find a top that would look good on it. Well I was helping the neighbor that moved into Miss Bailey's house do some yard work and found the top of her old birdbath covered in grass and weeds. She was going to throw it away but she was glad to give it to me and it's not the same as the one you had but I think it will work." Well he brought it home and yes it does work and it is just beautiful. There's another birdbath story too but that will have to wait till another time. What precious memories these birdbaths have for me now.

I found these two old pin keeps, I love these.

And on a hot sticky Saturday morning treasure hunting trip I found these two snowy paintings at a yard sale. I couldn't resist them. They were so cool and refreshing and they will be just perfect to display with my snowmen come winter.

Thank you all again and I hope to post more often now . I know life will not be the same again but life is good and I am fortunate to have so many warm, sweet memories.


  1. So glad to see you back on here. I know it's a hard time for you. That bird bath will always be a wonderful memory for you...what a wonderful story. Love those snow scenes. I could use a little snow right now during this unusually hot spell we're having. Take care...Annie

  2. Great finds!! I am sure that bird bath will always have such great memories for you. Such a sweet story.

    Still praying for you all.


  3. It was so nice to see that you did a post !
    Memories are comforting... Your brother will forever be in your heart.


  4. it's the small gestures in life that we so often take for granted, yet they usually leave us with the grandest wonerdful that your Sweet Brother loved you so much to think about you wanting that birdbath.

    Don't be surprised when it becomes a favorite spot for your little feathered-friends...your Brother will be sending each one down for you to cherish~

    Blessed be!
