Okay, Enough of Ignoring This Blog

I have been so neglectful of this blog because I'm giving so much of my time and energy to my Scrapmom's Musings Blog. I was considering putting everything into one blog, but felt it would be too overwhelming. Oh well. I vow to keep this blog updated at least on a weekly basis with things such as recipes, crafts, and living my life in Maine. I hope you'll come back often and enjoy what I'll be offering. Thanks!

So, where to start? I think I'll share some of my yard sale finds.

This is a dresser that I picked up for $3.00!!  I need to repaint it, but I might keep it white.  I'd like to add some flowers or something to it.  Not sure yet. 
This is a wooden shelf and a metal "thinga-ma-jig" that I'll use somewhere in the house.  I always buy stuff when it strikes my fancy, bring it home and then wonder what I'm going to do with it!  I think the wooden unit will go in the kitchen.  I'm not sure if I'll keep it as is or paint it.  I collect all kinds of country goodies, so I'll use this to display them.
And the item below I bought for a $1.00 and plan on keeping this in my scrap room.  The items inside were also purchased at the yard sale.  I like it as is as my scrap room has a Rose theme. 

This will be used to display little odds n ends that appeal to me.  They might not be scrap-related--just things that make me smile.

And this is an old jewelry box that I thought would be perfect on my work table in my scraproom to hold small embellishments.  I definitely have to change the color! 

Thanks for looking and come back soon!
