Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday! Old stone church on the way to Grandma's house..I used to go to Sunday school her as a child. Getting ready for a walk in the park with the dogs. 40's today than another Arctic blast.. Indoor flea market went well.I had one table of Antiques then the rest was just a mix of stuff. Glad I took both because it drew in everyone. Had one crazy lady wait till I walked away to look at stuff try to get our address from my hubby. She told him I said she cold come go through the house and buy stuff. She even left her phone#. He said I can't believe you are letting people in your house.I of course never said it. I talked to her while she decided on a antique biscuit box which she talked me down on then had to borrow money to buy. Were she got the idea of coming in my house I have no clue. Other than that it was busy and I found a few small treasures. Have a great week friends!~Amy

Not much going on it's winter.. Always time for me to take a short rest. I did decide to do a small indoor flea market this weekend. I wasn't thinking a month ago about how cold it would be. It's supposed to be 20's and snow showers so I don't think many will venture out.If it were me I'd stay in my warm house...smile... I did manage to get a small load packed and ready to go/I'm mostly taking just general stuff to clean out and one table of antiques and primitives that I don't much care about and willing to give good deals...I am excited to see one vendor that will be there so I can buy, I guess it's good I can recoup some of what I spend. Made homemade granola for the first time. I'm watching my sugar and found a recipe that was all natural.I always thought it would be hard but it was easy peasy. It is sooo good. It's just oats, honey,peanut butter, pure vanilla extract, a dash of sea salt and I added some pecans.Now when I'm craving something to grab I don't have to feel quilty or worry what's in it....Hope everyone is enjoying some winters rest.I've been enjoying some crafting, reading and lots of warm cuppa's.

Wednesday 1/9/2019

Just stopping in to wish everyone a happy Wednesday! Still seems so weird it's 2019, I can remember as a child thinking 2020 would be some weird Space Age time. Although we have so much technology now, I guess we kind of just grow with it and it becomes common everyday to us. Although I do enjoy some aspects my heart still loves the simpler things. Taking Joy today in the little things.Warm Blessings!~Amy
P.S. Humble Heart swap is posted click here for details  to join in the fun!
