I have not been blogging lately, been feeling soooo tired. My doctor has changed my thyroid medicine so maybe I'll get to feeling better. Doing pretty good today, just hope it keeps up.

I went to a few yard sales today, didn't find much, but this one lady had these two light fixtures that were not all together, but I liked them anyway. I want to make towel hangers for my kitchen with them. And this pretty tarnished tea pot. All of them was only $3. I like these kind of bargins.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.

I hope you feel better soon.. I truly do know how you feel..I have had thyroid issues for a long time. Amazing how just very slight change in the meds makes the world of difference to our lives. Will keep my fingers crossed for you.

What super great bargains. I love the lights that you are going to make into kitchen hooks, how unique and pretty. The silver teapot is so pretty. All shined up you will have a fabulous treasure. Hugs, Marty

Oh Pat! Take care of yourself. My daughter has thyroid problems and left untreated and not in check, it can lead to a whole host of other problems. My thoughts are with you. Keep us posted. I love your finds! Take care.

I can see a bunch of daisies in that teapot. If you can just fix it up so the water inside won't rust it.


I hope you are feeling energetic again soon Pat. Nice finds and a bargain.

Happy decorating!

Good Finds!! Hope you are feeling better! I took my grandson to see the birds today. He LOVED them. There was a group of about 12 - 15 feeding on the ground & I let him out of the car to run up & see them & scatter them. He thought that was too much fun. Hope to post them Wednesday. I posted the first trailer today. Hugs.

Hi Pat,
Thanks for stopping by...
I still haven't cooled off!!
So ..Look what you got.... these pieces are wonderful and they will really make nice towel holders... how clever..
Do you clean your silver things in the hot water with foil and washing soda??
Hope your thyroid is behaving and you feel better. I have had a heck of a time since I finally got off the Prednisone.My arthritis flared up and it was horrible.... my hands and shoulders were almost frozen... The doc gave me some meds to-day and I can't believe it but after one dose I feel better already...It is a non steroid too which tickles me.
The prednisone being a steroid had so many bad side effects...and of course it took a year to wean off it...
Enough tales from the crypt!!!
I am off to make your cookie recipe... It looks fabulous. I hang with a bunch of quilters on Thursdays and someone always takes treats. I will take these cookies. I know they will love them. Thanks for sharing...
