Darn! It's really cold!!

Hey everyone! Long time no see! Looks like I'm being bad again about not posting. I just don't have that much to Now other people would not agree with that statement...ha!!

We had a good sized snowfall last weekend. Here are some cool pictures that I took the next day.



I visited the Estate Dispersal Store yesterday and got a few things. I'm loving this typewriter:

This vintage sewing basket, filled with sewing needs, the little aluminum advertising clipboard and a pair of scissor's that have a really lovely design on them. Oh, and also the hat pincushion.

I joined a garage sale site on facebook recently for around my area. I have been selling quite a bit of stuff on it, but have also been doing some buying. I have met some really nice people right here in my area. This one lady that I have become fond of recently did something so awesome for me. A seller had a daybed listed and she also had a really primitive cabinet listed for $50.00. This friend bought the daybed and I had really wanted the cabinet, this seller lives 45 minutes from me and even further for my friend, so anyway, my friend finds someone with a truck to go and get the daybed and they were nice enough to pick this cabinet up for me!! There are really some awesome people out there, as I have also found many of you in blogland also! The cabinet does need lots of work but I just love it. I think I want to leave the top part just like it is and redo the bottom part but I can't decide how to do it. If you all have any ideas please let me know!!

Speaking of facebook garage sale sites, I started a page of my own called "Fremont Nebraska Area Rustic, Primitive, Shabby Chic and Antique Sale Barn". Alot of people in my area are starting to get into these types of decorating. But, there aren't many sellers of all these things in this area. So I'm sending out an invite to you all to join and to sell your items on my page. This also includes handmade items. Of course buyer pays shipping. If any of you would like to join, please just let me know. It's open to everyone, not just sellers but buyers also. So easy to upload photo's and it's all free!! All details are worked out between the buyer and seller. I would love to see you all there!

Ok, that's it for today. I have nothing else to ramble on Have a great week everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hi Brenda,
Love that cabinet.

We are suppose to get a winter storm tonight.
I'm hoping it doesn't come though.
I'm ready for spring not snow!

Love all your snow pics. It's cold here today too with lots of blowing and drifting. We had a little mini blizzard last night. Good to hear from you again Brenda. Neat cabinet too.



We're cold in Florida too, in the 20's the last two nights. Can't wait to see your finished cabinet. Have a great week.

It's been cold here since yesterday when the wind started...we've had a very mild winter so far with just a dusting or two and not many frigid days. I'll have to check out your page.

And you always have something to say...luv ya!

Beautiful snow pictures! We are finally getting some tonight, we are excited!

No wonder you've been missing... you've been too busy buying and selling, lol! Sounds like fun. It would be neat to find something like that here in my area. That's a cute cabinet. I would do like you said... leave the top and finish out the rest.

Good to hear from you. Have a wonderful week~

Hi Brenda~
your snow pics are lovely, to bad it didn't come before Christmas! Guess any moisture is welcome though.
The FB page sounds like a great idea and your finds are great too.
Stay warm and take care.

That is a neat cabinet. How thoughtful and nice for someone to haul it for you. The world is filled with great people:) No snow here. I have to borrow other people's pictures if I want to look at it, so thanks for sharing. Sometimes, I feel that I don't have much important to say on my blog either. But, for some reason people still keep coming back to visit:) Thanks for sharing. -Steph-
