A Few of my Favorite Things

I have not had much to blog about recently, so yesterday I was sitting in my rocking chair looking around the room and thinking about a few of my favorite things.  So I thought I would share them with you.

I love my African Violets when they bloom.

I love this little red bird (made of wood)

and this silly looking Red Duck (please ignore that bottle of Cognac)

This little antique foot stool makes me smile.

This old Bread Box with a metal 'bug' sitting on top, I also love that Bean Pot!

Those are just a few of my favorite things that I can see from my rocking chair.  What are your favorite things around your house.

9 Months Old

My littlest grandson is now 9 months old and his mother posted some pictures for me to pirate and put on my blog (thank you dear daughter). 

He has his own cupboard filled with pot lids (his favorite toys)

This is his newest face, it makes his parents laugh, he loves that!  

Taking a walk with Dad in the backyard.  Finally warm enough to wear summer clothes. 

He is getting so big and his parents report that he loves to walk, of course they are in for lots of exercise when he learns to walk without holding on to their hands.  I miss you little one, but will see you for your 1 year birthday in July.

The Way I Spend My Weekends

 I have been working my booth at the local Flea Market for almost six months.  It is fun to be out of the house and around people during those two days a week.  A few of my online peeps were wondering what the Flea Market looked like.  They wanted to know if it was dark and full of junk.  So I took a few pictures last week-end to show you where I spend my week-ends. 
This is my booth at the Flea Market.  The table in the front of the picture is all my information about the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure (I will be walking 60 miles over 3 days).  I have merchandise that I sell (pink ribbon magnets for the car, pink ribbon key chains, pink ribbon ink pens, etc.).  I also was given some Dinner for Two Gift Certificates that I use for Raffle Tickets (cost $1.00).  This week the gift certificate was from Texas Roadhouse.  Everyone wants to buy a ticket for the chance to win a free dinner and donate at the same time. 
This is Sandra's booth.  She is next to me on the left.  She is a very nice lady and I enjoy talking to her.

This is the booth that sells new socks.  He sells lots of socks, they are very cheap compared to stores.

This is the picture guy's booth.  He sells frames, picture and prints.  Lots of nice stuff.  

This is the Popcorn Machine, the smell always makes me hungry.  

There are 6 or 7 more booths, but I don't want to bore you with pictures of all of them.  We have a section where we put baby furniture, there is a military surplus booth, a booth that sells baseball caps, new bras (yeah, that was a surprise to me, who comes to the flea market to buy a bra?), and baby clothes.  It is a real mixture of what I call 'stuff'.  

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  See you next time.
