Show & Tell, & Hello!


Happy hump day friends!  Just a quick hello and some
"Show & Tell" today, as I am getting ready to get onboard....
for a long ride... to visit my family, and as a bonus, do a day trip with
my high school girlfriends.  Do you keep in touch with any old friends? 
It is really special!   So much to do before I leave, so let me get going on this post. 

I added some Thanksgiving décor to my buffet.
I just love this vintage fairy, festively covered with leaves.
The salt & peppers are another favorite, sold by Publix
grocery stores about 15 years ago...they're almost vintage!

The stuffed (ha ha) turkey I bought on an after Thanksgiving
clearance, along with a matching hanging banner. He's been around
for more than 10 years. 
 Honeycomb turkey was less than a buck
at an estate sale last year....irresistible! 
The turkey candleholders are sweet thrift store finds. 
 I found these sweet crafted clothespins while on our fall
vacation, at a booth in an antique mall.  Oh so
cute and cheap...25 cents.  Tell me what crafter is going to make
something that she sells for 25 cents?  I bought some of her
sweet Christmas items too. 
 I also wanted to share my latest thrifty art.  Another vintage
needle book that I framed and hung.  I think they are just
great, and you can't beat the graphics. 
Oh boy, please excuse the camera flash, I didn't realize it was so terrible.

Sharing my thrifted faux Joan Miro prints.  Spent $3 for each of them. 
Works for me since I can't afford a real one until we win the lottery. 
Positive thinking! 
 I've been working on my vintage pin board and gained
some space.  Space for more sweet pins that I covet  need  deserve...
Well okay, none of the above, but I do love & enjoy them, and
better still, I wear them. 
 Have a great week.  I'll be reading your entertaining posts
on my train trip....10 hours!  Yay for Amtrak WiFi!

That sweetie at the top of the post, is Josie, a 6 year old Bischon (I think)
that my sister recently rescued.  Cant wait to meet her. 
 I will be missing my Doyle... a whole lot!
See you next week!

    Love all your Thanksgiving stuff! I have the same needle book - it was my grammies.
    Bless your sisters heart for adopting little Josie! She looks very well bundled up and cozy, hoping she feels the love and settles in quickly.

    Yes, I still get together with my high school girl friends! I'm so happy to hear that you do too! Isn't it great? Mine will be coming to our house for our 20th annual Christmas get together! We've been doing it since we were 16 years old. Crazy! I hope your train ride was fun. I've never been on a train. Must be neat!
