Summer, Summer, Summer

July 22, 2014

Hi Everyone! Summer is half way through and it has been great so far.  We have family visiting from Sri Lanka & London which has kept us all busy but having a great time ...... the only hard part has been staying up late chatting away - waking up each morning at 5:30 has been reeaaalllyyyy rough :)

Oh well, life is still good - this past weekend we were at the lake with lots of family, the weather was sort of over cast most of the day on Saturday with patches of rain here & there - so my cousins and I decided to do some flea market shopping ....... had lots of fun driving around the country side of Pennsylvania.  We all ended up picking up a few goodies - my little prize was a vintage stool that swirls, if I have to guess, it's close to about 80/90 years old.  The detail in the legs with the little rolling ball on the end of each leg encased with some wrought iron is absolutely beautiful. 


                                    

So the plan is to clean it up, fix the seat and upholster it ....... will have to dig out some of my scraps of material to see what I have - just absolutely love it ...... even Mr. Craft loves it!

Also picked up a few other odds & ends including two blue mason jars.  The possibilities with these little beauties are endless!  No matter what, I can never seem to come home without a few jars.  The holiday container will go nicely with my table deco at our annual holiday party & the little pin cushion rocker with the thread holders on the arms ....... perfect accessory by my sewing machine


                                    

.All in all a great weekend!  The sun sure did come up on Sunday and we took in an early morning boat ride enjoying the quiet and the beautiful day God blessed us with.  Later on the kids got in some tubing, and before you knew it ........ yep, it was time to come back.

Hope you enjoy the pictures of the lake and until next time .....................
