Today we must remember the hero's that gave their lives for us, so that we can live in a free country. And today we must pray for the men and women that are putting their lives on the line for us to keep that freedom. Let's also pray for the families of our armed forces and for the families that have lost loved ones. And last let us all pray for our Country, the USA. I believe she needs more prayers now than she ever has, pray that we can get back to a country that puts God first in everything. Pray that God will touch our leaders and give them the courage to heal our country.
I pray that God will bless all of us and change the hearts of all who does not want the best for our Country.

Here are a few things I have found at garage sales or estate sales lately. Don't you just love this black and white silhouette. I have always loved to see pictures of ladies in swings, and this one is so romantic. And this black frame behind it is a vintage metal frame. These will probably be put in my etsy or on Tattered Elegance & Close Creations soon. This is some jewelery and door parts that I found. The necklace is made from shells, so pretty. And the door parts are very old and unique.

Don't you just love the little bird pins? The pink and the black ones are earrings.

When I look at these door parts, I see Lisa, wondering what kind of ideas would be going on in that creative mind of hers. I have more old door parts that I will be selling soon. And some wooden things that I will show in another post.

Hope you enjoyed, and wishing you a great Thursday!!

Wishing all of you the best of Mother's Days. I wanted to honor my mother, Oma by placing her picture with me on Mother's Day on my blog. She was such a pretty lady and good mother. I was her only child, and sometimes that got rough for me, she was so afraid something would happen to me. Hope all of you are sharing time with your mother or your children on this BLESSED day.
Hugs, Pat

Here are my pictures from the 15 Mile Antique Alley Flea Market. As everyone here knows it rained that weekend. Friday was pretty and I did very well. I started setting everything out early Friday morning and people came and started buying. I just knew it wasn't going to rain. I had been saying we were going to have a good rain free weekend, but I guess the Lord has something better in store for me. Anyway he gave me a great Friday and I got to go to some of the booths at Whipp Farms. I met Pam, from The Altered Muse and saw Debbie English. She sells things for little girls. Clothes and furniture. She had her best weekend. These girls had tents and the rain didn't hurt them. I also met a Leigh, she is a painter and tatter. I ordered some sun bonnet sue girls tatted in pink. She also sent a pink heart. She does needle tatting, and I had a needle kit that teaches you to tat and I am learning. So far I have done two rings. I have a set of two books and they said when I finished the second book I would be able to tat any pattern I wanted too. I hope that is right.

Right now, I am redoing my studio. I have painted all the furniture in there except for one shelf. I am sorting all my lace and fabrics. I have been through nine grocery bags full of laces the past couple of days. I want it all set up so I can start doing some crazy quilting. Later I will show some pictures.

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Pat
