A little of this and a little of that...

The past few days have been so hectic I am just now getting to the things that happened in my life LAST week. I think I need a "do over". Do you ever feel that way?
Saturday we went to The Enchanted Forest in Greenville for some treats and lots of fun. I don't know who had more fun me or the grandbabies.
Grandbaby #Two went as a cute little pink poodle.

Grandbaby # One went as Superman.

We said,"hold your baby sister." ... guess we should have been more specific.

It's not as dangerous as it looks. The camera just caught that second. He really is a good big brother and helps mom and dad take care of little "sisa!."
There were lots of story book characters in the Enchanted Forest.

Earlier in the week I felt like I was in an Enchanted Forest when I visited one of my favorite
antique malls...

I was so excited when I spotted this cute little pitcher.

It is a lamp.I had been looking for one for my kitchen. I wanted a silver teapot and may have to make my own lamp later but this one will do for now.... after all, you can never have too many lamps or pitchers, right???

Please ignore the electric cord. Cords are often a decorating challenge for me. Any ideas on how to hide them on a kitchen counter and island? I seriously could use some help with this.

moving on...

I also scored these little vintage Christmas ornaments.I plan to use them at the condo.

The faces are painted with such cute detailed expressions.

and finally
After about my 100th visit to a store I went home and got these to take back with me to the store.

No,Your computer has not bit the dust and you do not need your eyes checked.It is just what it looks like. My red (oxblood) Dansko and a red tie-back. I used them to match a color on a purchase I finally made today.
Any guesses???
 I'm suppose to get it tomorrow.
I'll be back with a picture when it arrives.
Glad you stopped by. Hope you have a great evening and y'all come on back!

I'm linking to these great parties. Go visit for lots of fun!


  1. Your grandkids are so darling in their costumes!

    I adore your vintage Santa ornaments, so fun!

    Happy Rednesday,

  2. Love the lamp! Maybe you could tack the cord just above the back splash so it's not so obvious. You could even put a piece of trim there on the whole backsplash if you really got into hiding it!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog! I am a new fam!

  3. Oh, I love the lamp! It is darling. You have a great blog. I will be back. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I appreciate it so much. Hope you will come back again.

  14. Hi,
    You have an adorable family! And I love that new lamp!

    Thanks so much for linking to 2nd Time Around!

  15. What a lovely family! Cute grands! I have a silver teapot lamp. It took many months to get it because I kept getting outbid on them on ebay. I finally got mine for around $15. I love it but I have never quite found the perfect shade for it.

  16. You are so lucky to have Super Man in the house!

  17. What cute grandbabies! I love that little pitcher, I've been having to stop myself lately from purchasing too many of them, LOL.

  18. Cute grand kids!!
    I LOVE that lamp!! It would look so good in my Kitchen!I do have a thing for lamps.....


  19. Those grandkids are adorable. Love your lamp but I adooore those Santas!!!

  20. I love your lamp!! What a sweet addition that would make in a kitchen! happy VTT!

  21. The pics of your grand kids are too cute! The teapot lamp was such a great find. Would a wash and wear cord cover work, or would it get too gunked up on the counter?

  22. Beautiful family and those Christmas ornaments are stunning!

  23. That is the perfect lamp for a kitchen. Cute!

  24. Those babies are just precious. I laughed out loud when I saw the photo of him "holding" the baby...so cute.
    I really like your lamp..I need one, too, for my kitchen. A small one that can be tucked in beneath my cabinets.
    Pretty ornaments, too.
    My guess is a new red chair..??

    Thanks for stopping by last night with your sweet words about my photos. I appreciate that.

  25. The kids look great in their costumes! Love the ornaments.

  26. What sweet faces and cute costumes! I love the vintage ornaments and lamp. I have seen some people who make a little fabric sleeve that slips over the cord. Don't know if that will fit with your decor. . .

    And thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate the comment.

  27. They always take you so litterally when they are that small, lol. I remember the day my oldest got the whole joking thing, what a wonderful day. Love your pics and ornaments!

  28. The grands are very cute! Love the lamp and it's hard to hide cords I agree. Thanks for linking up with Junkin Finds Friday (aka Garage sale).

  29. Your grandkids are adorable! I love your finds, too~ the lamp is great! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments!

  30. Looks like a fun time with your grandkids-they are so cute-best to enjoy them -what a fun age!

  31. Hi-thanks so much for visiting me. I love those little ornaments and the red shoes!

  32. Your kiddos are a dor able!! Love the lamp, I hate cords too! Sweet ornies
    Thank you so much for the well wishes and prayers for the hubs. He is home and doing better.

  33. Those Christmas ornaments are so beautiful. You were so lucky to find them.

    Best wishes,

  34. I love the pic of your grandson "hugging" his sister. So cute! (And the teapot lamp is adorable, too!)

  35. You have the cutest grandbabies! I just love that pink poodle outfit. The enchanted forest sounds like a lot of fun. And that teapot lamp is wonderful. As for the ornaments - pure jealousy. I've been looking for vintage ornaments all year and have found only two.

  36. What precious little trick or treaters. Love that lamp! what a find! laurie

  37. Your little superman and poodle are adorable. How precious your grandchildren are!!

  38. I really got a kick out of your grandchildren's Halloween costumes. What precious blessings they are!
    I love the pitcher (lamp) you purchased. I think small lamps add such warmth and coziness to a kitchen. I have the same problem with cords. I know some folks make a narrow "sleeve" of fabric to cover the cord. Very nice reading back thru your posts tonight.

  39. Annette,
    I LOVE the picture of your grandson holding his little "sisa!" Too cute! Your lamp and pitcher are adorable...looks like you had a good time thrifting!



Thanks for leaving a comment. I
read each and every one.
Have a blessed day!
