Swap Pics and a Sneak Peek
Next is a sneak peek at my yo-yo project. It is finally finished and I sent Donna (DONNA'S-In The Attic) the pictures of the finished project. When she has posted them I will post them here too. I like the colors...I didn't stitch the yo-yo's together, I attached them to the project. I kind of like the "shabbier" look of it. Now I can get started on those Christmas gifts!

I guess that's all for now...happy treasure hunting and hugs!

Garden Fresh Picks!
My yo-yo project should be done this afternoon and then I will email the pictures to Donna at
DONNA'S-In The Attic, who is hosting the yo-yo challenge. After she posts the pictures, I will post them on my blog. I hope you will like it. I have a few more projects coming down the pipeline soon! More yo-yo's and some cards!
I should be treasure hunting again soon. I have been so busy here. I would like to go to the flea market but I'm not sure we will make it this weekend.
Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
Happy treasure hunting and hugs!

A WINNER and a pumpkin update!!!
Jill at Jill's Junk to Jewels!!!! Congratulations Jill!!!!
I will send you a message about getting your address.
Turning orange now!!!
Now onto the pumpkin update...look how big it's getting! I think pumpkin number 1 is done growing now because it's already turning orange! I was really surprised to see the orange peeking through! Some of the leaves have powdery mildew...so today I will spray them with the fungicide that's safe for vegetables. (DD's boyfriend brought some home for me from the garden center he works at.) There are several pumpkins out there now...I just hope they don't ALL turn orange too early...I know we didn't plant them too early. Hmm...a learning experience for sure.A little bit of a yo-yo update...my project will be done this week!!! So there will be a photo soon...I think I like my project, hope you do too! I bought some more fabric to make more
yo-yo's for Christmas gifts...I have a couple of ideas floating around. They are addictive to make but oh "sew" easy!!
Well that's all for now! I hope you all are having a blessed and wonderful weekend! Thanks ever so much for stopping by!!! Happy treasure hunting and hugs!!!

2 treasures and a giveway picture
Here are pictures of some treasures...I got them at a thrift store called Rescued Treasures. They are having a sale until the end of August 50% off everything in the store. Their furniture is a bit pricey but their dishes and other "treasures" not so bad. They even had things like vases and individual plates and cups at 75% off. I ended up getting 2 identical milk glass footed bowls, 7 six inch bread plates by Franciscan (pattern Maytime), 4 snack plates with cups , a small milk glass vase and a milk glass candy dish... all for $12. I didn't think that was bad at all!
This chicken planter came from the Salvation Army last week. I fell in love with it!
And this is the GIVEAWAY picture!!! One of the bread plates I picked up, one of the milk glass footed bowls and a little bird house that I picked up at a yard sale. This is my first giveaway, hope you like it!
Well, I guess that laundry is calling my name. Hope you all have a great day! Happy treasure hunting and hugs!!!

~Where have you traveled? Canada, Oklahoma, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Washington D.C., North Carolin, Kentucky and Tennessee...I almost forgot... Florida and the Caribbean!
~Where would you like to live? I like my house here in Michigan but will eventually be moving to Illinois full-time.
~What is your decorating style? A bit of everything...I mix the old with the new. I will post a few pics soon.
~How many times have you been married? One time, almost 24 years.
~Favorite color: shades of pink, green, brown and white~
~What is your proudest accomplishment? 2 kids...one soon to be a meteorologist and one soon to be an elementary/middle school teacher
~What would we be absolutely shocked to learn about you? Hmmm...I guess that will go along with my second tag today...I really don't listen to music. I like it but when I'm alone in the car...I like to be quiet and have time to think.
Now I will tag these ladies (if you've been tagged before and don't want to do this again...no problem!)....
Kim at BellaDella and Joy at Books and Life!
Ok have a fun and great day! Hugs!

Look who I found
Pumpkin flowers...they're so big and bright and the bees love them!
A pumpkin anatomy lesson...this flower bud is a male...no pumpkin bulge under it.
This one is the female...can you see the little bulge below the bud? (Right where the vines divide)
An update on our first pumpkins progress. Saturday, July 12.
No new treasures to share. We had a busy weekend! Saturday we went to the Detroit Tigers game...we have season's tickets right by Magglio Ordonez on the right field side. Magglio is on the DL, a couple of weeks ago we watched him walk off the field with an injury. I missed seeing him there but he will be back after the All Star break. Sunday we worked around the yard and did errands...not so fun stuff. I think today I will check out a thrift store.
Have a great day! Hugs and happy treasure hunting!

Before and Now
Ugh! Ok the pics are in the post below because Blogger won't put the pictures where I want them! Sorry about that!!! Hope you enjoy the pics on the next post!
Happy treasure hunting and Hugs!
The Garden Pics
Still Saturday, July 5 (before hubby cut that long grass!)
Our first pumpkin! It's a lot bigger since this pic was taken on Saturday!
This treasure box I found at the Marshall's in Illinois. It was on clearance for only $7. I love it, it will hold a lot of treasures! The skeleton key I picked up at the Armada Flea Market for $1.50. (I added the green ribbon.) I love these keys...my great-grandma had one to open her door up until she died in 1981. They remind me of her.
I fell in love with this Avon talc tin at the Armada Flea Market. I love the flowers and the pink lid. It has just the right amount of shabby-ness to it. (only 75 cents)
I have been collecting these bud vases for a very long time. I haven't seen one in a while but picked this one up at the Armada Flea Market for a dollar. I don't know if it's and old one or a reproduction or what they call them but I love them.
One final pic of my skeleton key. It's so cute!
Tomorrow I will have pictures of our vegetable garden. Our plants are growing like crazy, especially the pumpkins. Have a wonderful day all! Happy treasure hunting and hugs!
