A few finds

Good morning! 
Here are a few finds I found at an estate sale I went to last weekend.
Not sure what I'm going to use the tool box for yet, it was only a dollar, I figured I could use it for something! Lol. I thought the little red metal case was so cute, I was already picturing that one spray painted a different color and doing like an altered box out of it. And putting many fun pieces on and inside of it.

The watches I was excited to get, I've been wanting some for jewelry making! 

This cabinet was $2.50.....how can you pass that up!?! so I decided to get it. I've been seeing online and pinterest them spray painted and all prettied up. I might try something like that or maybe just donate it to Luke (if he can maybe use it or even put it in the garage or something) 
If you'd like you can find me on Pinterest, HERE

I showed hubby these online and he said oh we can make those!
So he ordered some parts and ta da! 
 And now I have a sweet drinking glass! :) 

I'm going to make a candle batch of Cranberry Marmalade and Apples & Maple Bourbon for a friend at work. Are you up to anything fun today? I've been having fall and Halloween on my mind lately, and I'm wanting to start making some new things..... :) 
Happy Thursday!!

so sweet of her to send them to me!!! And they are so pretty too!

 Oh what sweet packaging!!! And very exciting to open too!
I just love all the pretty layers.

Oh and this hanger.....Soooooo lovely!! 
She included a cross stitch rose on the fabric of the strawberry!

I love the backside too!

Here's a little update on my Etsy Shop:: 
I added two lovely necklaces with divine colors for fall!
This one.....

And this one:: 
The Envelope necklace :)

I just love this necklace, so fun to wear and the envelope even opens too! :) 

I added a sweet green and tan afghan with a lovely pretty edging

 And I had to add a couple cute little pumpkins!! :) 

Wishing you a thrifty day!!!

3 Mares

Thank you all so much for your kind, loving, sweet, well wishes, thoughts and prayers. You all are so incredibly sweet!

I wanted to share some pictures of the mares that I took a couple days ago. 
I hope their faces will leave a smile on yours. 

They are up in the front pasture right now, they have a back one full of grass, but they can't be back there too long because they'll get a belly ache from eating too much green grass. So we let them go in the back pasture for a couple hours a day. 

*Pretty flower*

I had to take this one for my husband, 
he's always said (why such the long face horsey) Lol.

Thanks for having a look! Wishing you all a wonderful day & hopefully a crafty thirfty one!

A Celebration of Life

Hi there sweet friends, sorry I have been a little absent lately. Today my heart is heavy for a dear friend and her family, as she celebrates life today. She was in a bad car accident late last Wednesday and passed away on Friday. She was my age (24) and we've been friends since about age 7 or 8. We've had many memories together, through 4-h, showing at horse shows, having slumber parties, and her scaring me half to death driving the gator around up and down hills at her house. Today we are celebrating her, as she donated her organs saving the lives of at least eight people. 
May God help her family heal from this tragedy, they are in my continued prayers and constant thoughts.
You will be missed dearly Hanna, we all love you!
