Where am I? Where was I? Which blog was I visiting? You know how it is your visiting one blog and soon your at another blog and another and another and you don't know how you got there or where you started.!! But I'm happy to have ended up at Nice and Easy Antiques created by sisters Carla and Marcela and they sponsor Junkin Monday. So I've decided to join in the fun and show everyone what treasures I found over the weekend!

I just love vintage embroidered linens. Someone put alot of work into these beauties!

Found these dolies at a garage sale. Was told they are old and from Greece.

When I saw these dessert plates with tea cups it was love!
Can you just imagine having your friends over for a tea party! There are six in the set.

A old tablecloth.

Handmade beaded Christmas ornament.

Vintage milk glass and red coffee canister.

Blog Anniversary Giveaway 1 Year!

That's right! This week I had my 100 post and November 3rd is my one year blog anniversary! I decided to combine the two and have a giveaway. What better day to tell you about it than on PINK Saturday since I have some PINK in my giveaway.

When I started my blog I knew zero about blogging just read that blogging was a good way to get folks to my Ebay listing and website. Well blogging is so much more!! It's like having friends with you all the time day or night. It's still hard for me to share the things that go on in my life daily but I'd like to do that even if I think people won't be interested. Sometime we need to just do something and not worry about it.

I'm going to have two giveaways. This first one is for my followers. It amazes me that people like my blog enough to follow me - it warms my heart and puts a smile on my face! Thanks you followers every one of you! On November 3rd a name will be pulled from all my followers and they will get the three pot sitters in the photo below I'll even throw in the PINK bench!

The second giveaway is for everyone who leaves a comment on this post. On November 3rd I'll pick a name from all the comments.

Two Gooseberry Patch books.

Christmas 2008 10th Anniversary & Chistmas 2009 Book 11

Handmade pillow using vintage linens.

This is so sweet! A bowl with two little birds.

It could be a bird feeder, candy dish or maybe a soap dish.

This is my first needle felted bear Benny.

He needs a good home!

A beautiful handpainted rose plate.

So here are the rules:

  1. If you are a follower or become a follower on 11/3 your name will be in the drawing for the pot sitters and pink bench.

  2. Leave a comment on this post to win the 2nd giveaway. Drawing will be on 11/3.

  3. If you put my giveaway badge on your blog please leave a 2nd comment and tell me for another chance to win.

Hope you understand all this it's about 1:30 AM and I'm really tired. Email me with any questions.

Warm hugs,

Fountains Turn PINK In Pittsburgh

All the fountains in Pittsburgh are PINK in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This has been going on four years but I never knew about it!

The Pennsylvania Commission for Women turned the fountain at Point State Park pink to raise awareness about the incidence of Breast Cancer and the benefits of an early diagnosis.They hope the fountain will serve as a reminder for women to do monthly breast self-exams and schedule yearly mammograms. One out of every 7 women in Pennsylvania will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

This is the fountain at the court house.

Thanks Bev for hosting "PINK Saturday". Don't forget to visit How Sweet the Sound to find other PINK participants.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Rivers Casino FUN!

Today my husband and I went to the Rivers Casino for the first time. The Casino just opened here in Pittsburgh in August. We met up with his aunt and uncle and we all had a grand time! Once your inside the casino it's like your in a cocoon (and I'm sure that how they want you to feel) without a worry in the world! First we ate at the Grandview Buffet and it was very good. After lunch I took out my $20 bill and started to play the penny slots. That $20 lasted me 3 hours and I came home with four cents. Not bad for 3 hours of fun!

I didn't take my camera so had to search the internet for some photo of the casino. Next time I'll take my camera...there are lots of beautiful things to see.

Warm wishes,
