Okay enough whining about that and blaming y'all cuz I have NO discipline! Oh, it's true; I do not have a bit.
So now I am playing catch up!!! These are things from various treasure missions; I like the Lapeer Farmer's Market; not only do I get good cheap fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables; they have treasures! They are open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from May to October. I also go to thrift shops like Goodwill and Salvation Army; I feel good about that because my little amount of money does go to help others. ( I also donate things that I don't need/want anymore to help out too!)
I also began doing a little garage saling; by accident; I got two grungy quilts to use in crafting for all of nine dollars. And some never used beautiful pillows for $5...
You know these bunnies are waiting to get all primmed up; but they were $3 for both!
These were free( I love the green bowl? dish?)
This was found at the Goodwill store for $2; there was one like it at the Farmer's Market for $8; I think I did good!!!!

Also from the farmer's market;
That is a goofy sticker in the bowl; arrgh! It looks bad; but is NO LONGER THERE!
This is a feed sack from the local Co-op; also from the Farmer's Market:
These bears I got on two separate trips to the farmer's market; both were $1 each!!!
The Primmy Things I make and sell:
One of the super primmy snowballs; smells so good; cinnamon,coffee,vanilla;
My soon to be house sign inspired by another blogger's sign! I have to look to remember whose it was:
Not so primmy; more shabby chic; I made this a couple of years ago.
Small Shaker Box I primmed :
One of the lids for the jars:
Sorry the last two are a bit blurry; but you get the idea. Now I am mostly up to date on my treasure finds ; Last weekend we went to the farmer's market in Lapeer on Saturday; then we headed to Port Huron so I could go to Mary Maxim's Craft Store; you can order from them online; they are in the U.S. and also have a store in Canada (Sarnia,Ontario I think) The link is http://www.marymaxim.com/ for the U.S. one; link for Canada is http://www.marymaxim.ca/ . They have some great items for crafting,knitting,sewing,quilting,beading, and they have email alerts and coupons for sales too. We did not take the bikes that day because I did want to buy a few items and it is impossible to do any good shopping on the bikes, at least 'til I get saddlebags!!!LOL!
Here are some photos from that trip:
The Blue Water Bridge from the U.S. (Michigan) into Sarnia, Ontario,Canada
The Huron Lightship; used to warn ships with its light:
My two favorite flags; Canada and the US; this is in Ontario.
Then on Sunday; we went to take Niles,Murphy,Zoey,Bitsy to McDonald's, where their sister is beginning her manager training. And these mugs love McDonald's! This is what a bully trip looks like ( in Sparkle):
Niles is telling his Dad;" we needz more sausage biscuits!"
Niles and Zoey; "Dis openz, how u do dat?" ( I had never opened the back hatch window, so this was a big revelation to them!
The Murph; " U didn't tell me it openz! Whatz up wit dat?"
Bitsy and Zoey; " Me stick my head out first, NO!! ME FIRST!"
Murphy says; ( in LOL speak; see I has a HotDog link) this my hooman sister, her names is Christmas Eve; we calls her Chrissie; we is a bi-species family,canine-hooman; but we don'ts care; we luves her like she is canine! And she gives us good noms; and makes her co-workers gives us good noms too, like Milk-Bones!
After we took them back home; we decided to take a short ride around the Thumb of Michigan; I think we totaled about 190 miles all together.
Here's some more for you to look at:
The fountain in Port Austin where we had lunch; Port Austin is on the shore of Lake Huron;
Our bikes; no, mine does not have a name; but I love it just the same !
My FAVORITE helmet; I love pink and black!!!
Harbor Beach; also on the shores of Lake Huron;
So I am almost caught up; but I want to post a pic of the rainbow outside my sewing room window yesterday, but I have to download it; so I will have to do that next time. I have never put this many photos on at one time; AND it has taken me all the day to do it!LOL!!!!
Well that's all for now!!! I bet you are saying finally!!! LOL
