New creations :)

A week or so ago my cousin Stephanie came to visit me. I had asked her if she'd run to this amazing bead store before she came, its really close to where she lives, to pick a few things up for me. I haven't gotten a chance to go there in a couple months. This is store is sooo awesome they have any and every kind of bead you could think of!! It's where I get majority of all my stuff for beading from. :)

Anyways so I had her pick a few strands out that she liked and bring them up with her!
I love the bunch she brought me!! So pretty and perfect for a nice summery start!
Over the weekend before one of three of our cookouts I was able to sit outside in the warm HOT sunshine and bead some! So this is what I cam up with, I'm just loving these new colors!

A necklace....in which I will say
"custom orders are welcome!!!" You can visit my Facebook
 page for more info and to message me HERE :)

a lovely summer bracelet

Hope you enjoyed looking at these beauties, I just love real stones, they're just so pretty to me, I've always liked them since my childhood.  I use to collect all kinds of polished rocks and even some that weren't polished. My mom and dad got me a rock tumbler when I was younger, we had a lot of fun playing with it and making old dirty rocks turn into these beautiful gems! We did purple amethyst, fools gold, and so many more.

Happy Thursday,inspiring you to
 make some new creations today!!! :) :)

Vintage reds

Maybe some kitchen linens??
I thought this vintage linen would be perfect to make some
 cute little kitchen curtains out of! I just use about napkin size
on half of my window above my sink. That way the top can still
 let light in if they're closed.

I couldn't pass this sweet little hanky up, so
I had to purchase it :) ((Smiles))

Happy Thursday!! Loving this weather we are having! Sunny and
 pretty warm! That's my kind of weather!! Hope you enjoy your day!!!

Bountiful Seed Company//Barn Sale Treasures

Hello there, I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends. It was a pretty nice one here. My mom and I went to a big barn sale, found some really neat treasures! This place was unbelievable, I would take it in a heart beat! It use to be an old horse farm, possible racing but i'm not sure, they had soooo many old barns and the different vendors were in all these cute little rooms, and we got looking around and they used to be the old horse stalls! SOOO COOL! Another area use to be an old wash rack, it still had all the piping to connect the hoses. Beautiful grounds! They had a huge gorgeous house, a guest house, and another cute little house where the grounds keepers probably stayed. Several big barns, they still have a few horses, and so many antiques sitting around!!! AHH I was in heaven! For the stalls they had the tie stalls with all the original wood and wood floors, then they also had the box stalls with the huge sliding doors I would love some of those in my house!!!

Moving along to the treasures!! I found this old seed tin that I fell in love with!
It was only $4.00! I just had to have it! lol.

Thought it was so cute! Here it is sitting on my little table when you walk in the door. I thought maybe we could put our keys in it! :) 

OOOOh my goodness I absolutely LOVE this,
I was so excited when we found it! It was full of brooches (which I love those too!) and mom was like see if they'll sell this along with some brooches and they did! SO excited for this find! It looks perfect next to our couch!!

Then I found this very neat chair, and a box and a hammer (got those two things for the hubby!) 

Here's one more shot of my chair!

I also got a very sweet vintage braided rug,((which I'm soo excited about!!)) a small purple quilt and a couple tin trays, haven't took any pictures of those yet, but I'll try to post those as well. And if your wondering mom found her fair share of goodies too! LOL.
Take care, Have a lovely Monday!! :)

The three mares, Emily, Little Miss, and Casey

 Little Miss, she so cute. She will lay down, roll, then sit up on her butt and lay down and roll some more. This happens just about every time!!

A new {little} stack ....sew cute!

I recieved these little squares, in the mail a week or so ago, They are so cute
and full of color! I can't wait to do something with them!
I bought them off etsy from Whimsie Dots.

Now I'm trying to decide what I want to do with them ;)
I have a few ideas~ They're just so cute and sweet!!!
I was thinking maybe a couple placemats, mug rugs, or block a few together and make some cute little napkins, or curtains out of them. For curtains I'll have to block a few other things in too...hmmm the possibilities are endless! Any suggestions or sweet ideas for me?

Hope you take care and have a lovely day!!
~warm sunny wishes~
