A Few Treasures and an Update on the Gypsy house

Hello Everyone,
  OK, so I just have to know, does it seem like time is just flying right by at the speed of light for anyone else besides me? It's already been a couple of weeks since my last post and it feels like it was just a couple days ago! But anywhooo, I thought I would just check in with you all and have a little chat, care to join me? The weather here has been hot, humid and rainy for a couple of days now, so I decided I should clean the ashes out of the fireplace and put the lovely scented candles back for a little ambiance, what do you think?
 Turn The lovely lady fountain on for sound and

 There you have it, a little ambiance and romance for the soul! so now that the mood is set, I thought I would show you a few treasures I found last week. Some were purchased at Goodwill and some came from a estate sale where honest to goodness, there was so much stuff you couldn't even take it all in and the prices,surprisingly enough, were amazingly reasonable!! First off was this lovely pair of antique cherub candleholders that were $ 16.00 for the set, had to have those since I love cherubs, Yeah ;-)
 Next was this lovely real stone grape cluster for $2.00, not sure if the stones are amethyst crystals or purple Jade but I love them, so weighty and prettier in person.
 These glasses, a set of 6 for 49 cents each, so sweet don't you think?
 Ok not a good picture of this totally girly beautiful goodness of a bracelet that I paid one dollar for, it still has it's 19.99 price tag on it! Anyway, its dangly pearls and citrine colored rhinestones, ever so pretty!

Then there was this little bird bath for $5.00, hope to attract some birds to this living room window but there is not very many bushes on this side, so we will see if it works.
 And finally, here are some updates on Raven and Romney's house, it now has it's wood stove in the corner and it looks like Raven has a pot of stew on to cook as we speak, yumm. It seems Raven has been very busy and has hung a picture by the table, made some herbal remedy's for the hutch, filled the urns on top with dried herbs, upholstered the seat there behind Romney and unpacked her lovely candleabra that she inherited from her own sweet Mama.
 Raven has moved the bed in to the bedroom and hung the mosquito netting over it and covered it with her grandma's quilt. She has a lovely tapestry with a unicorn hanging over her dresser, there's still things to do, but she's settling in quite nicely.
 She's hung her lace curtains and gathered some herbs to dry in the upstairs window( upstairs because you can't close the door if they hang in the kitchen windows ) Ok, well that"s all for now folks, Will update you as Raven and I make progress with her home, Also being a gypsy and all, Raven is an excellent story teller, you'll have to come back to hear the story she's planning to tell Romney about a beautiful young blonde lass that wondered into the camp one day a few years ago.........Till next time, Love and Blessings to you all,


  1. Hi Teresa! What great estate sale finds, how fun! Cute narration to go along with Raven and I really like the little rugs you have used, and the still life framed picture and the kitchen windows, love those beads hanging down!
    Thanks so much for your recent visit and comment, I really appreciate it! Have a blessed Sunday,

  2. Nice ambiance for sure, especially with the sounds from the little fountain. I keep thinking about getting one.

    You found some lovely treasures this past week too.

    Plus, I am so happy you found a 'hugs-n-kisses' hibiscus. You will love it. All of those delicious colors on one bush is just amazing.

    Have a wonderful week ~ FlowerLady

    1. Thanks Lorraine, I have one flower open today, so pretty
