Trust in the LORD with all your HEART. Lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all thy ways and he will direct your path.

Thought I would post a couple of vintage/antique goodies I found on the #127 longest yard sale...

                 A great chicken nesting box~~~~A 21 Hotelier!

This antique wood door came out of an 1850's brick schoolhouse.  I'm sure the door was added later (with sign).  It has original knobs (both sides)and side hardware.  The glass was in the door when brought out to sell....the wind blew the door over and well......the glass broke.  BUT because of that, I got a great deal!

Sweet finds~~~Be Blessed.......Roxie

A few months back, the oldest cottage on my street was up for sale.  Full of character and charm but needed some work.  At one point, Hubby and I considered buying it but decided it wasn't the right time.  Especially, when you are still working on the one you live in.
The cottage sold to a wonderful couple who downsized (just like us).  Upon learning the couple would be replacing all the "old" windows, I was offered the chance to get them.  Well, I couldn't pass that up.....
I now have over 50 nice old windows...some with character, some plain.  So what does one do with all these windows??
Well, Hubby decided to tell me, he was going to build me a Garden House/Greenhouse/She Shed!  Wow, did he ever speak too soon.....So here are some examples I have been scouring PINTEREST and the internet for...






                                    famous Tinkerhouse-pinterest


They are so nice in their own special design.  Each one has something I like. This project will not be until next year but I am looking forward to it.  We have a few other more important things to do like put a new roof on the garage.
The Garden House will be approx. 8 x 8  or 10 x 10.  depends on the windows etc.
I have found a neat 100 yr. old door for it too!

Which one is your favorite?

                                                     Belle of the Barn

Having a little fun this year with Belle!

                                I love this Antique Brooch on Belles hat!  I purchased the brooch 2 years ago from the Antique Mall.  I also love wearing it on my denim jackets....

I'm still "tweeking" her........maybe add a little silver to her dress!  I've been trying out different cowboy boots too!   Enjoy your Holidays~~~Merry Christmas!
Prayers and Blessings~~~Roxie

I am!!  The smell of fresh, crisp air......pumpkins and pick-ups.  Lots of apples and apple cider with sunflowers smiling upwards to the sun.
Flowering kale, cabbage and mums all around our porches.....tractors, hay and corn shocks adorning the countryside.......yep, it's my favorite time of year!  Life is Good~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

Just a quick post to show an update on the outside..........

                              We put some very simple landscaping in this Spring.....

            the oil/stain is ALMOST finished!  (we have the "yellow" part to finish too)
Then......some "light" landscaping in the Fall on the side of the cottage and in the front of the side deck.  Plus, if time allows, there will be a Pergola going over the side deck you see in this picture.....can't wait!
This deck comes off the family room that was added years ago.

          The moral of the story~~~"A mans work is never done"!   LOVE my Ken~~~

You can't build Rome in a this case, a Cottage!   Blessings~~~Roxie

                         Yep, It's been a while............
 If you are wondering......I have been keeping myself pretty busy these last few months.  Things I LOVE to do.......and things I don't care to do.

One of those "things" I love is visiting the Farmers Markets in our area......
Isn't this just the SWEETEST thing selling flowers off this pick-up bed turned FLOWER STAND?

As I stated earlier in the year...I won't be blogging as much as I use to. BUT, I still enjoy visiting your blogs, seeing all the creativity one shares or just a GOOD, ENCOURAGING post that makes one smile!

You of the "things" I don't care to do is seeing a "C" Doctor.....but it is necessary.  Even though everything is going GREAT,  I have been back on treatment since March....yuk.
The Doc wants to try to shrink that ugly tumor a little more.............Hey, it's been almost 6 yrs!  Isn't GOD good!
                  In the will find me visiting Farmers Markets, Flea Markets and some Junking.  And of course, thanking the Lord for everything he has done for me in my life!
                     Please keep me in your prayers~~~~Love you all!
