Bet this one threw you off didn’t it? It’s been so long since I’ve had anything worth showing for Thrifty Thursday. I’ve gotten a few doodads lately though… lets take a look!
As always my little cat-dog Tracy is right there to help me. :)
Found this wonderful canning Jar. $5.50. Love it!
Looking for some flags to put in it.
A cute wall box. $1.00. No Makeover needed. Prim perfect as is!
A lovely salt glazed pottery piece. It’s big. Probably 8” across. Pretty cool!
A nice 10” crackled plate.
A 12” pewter plate.
The pickins’ have been slim… but I think I found a few keepers. :)
Until next time…

I need to send a huge thank you out to Cindy at Cynthia Lee Designs!
Look what she made me!
Thank you so much Cynthia!!! I love this so much!!!
Wonder if she could put it on the back of my biker vest! LOL! I totally would!!!!
I had come across this hammered candy dish for her a while back and sent it to her. She collects hammered pieces and I just knew she had to have it! It’s different. I liked it a lot… and luckily she did too!
If you don’t know Cindy… you are missing out!
Head on over to her blog and say hello!
Until next time…

Hi my wonderful Friends!
Thank you all so much for the blogiversary wishes! I appreciated each and everyone and much as I appreciate you and the last 3 years!
While you were wishing me happiness… I was getting a full days dose of it! Saturday was Awesome!!! A day I won’t forget anytime soon!
Reasons I will never forget last Saturday!
1. You and your kind words about my silly little blog! Seriously. THANK YOU ALL!
2. Zumba. Had a great Saturday at Zumba! It was rocking and I burned some mad fat! Woohoo!
3. Personal Training! Woohoo! Loving it and getting stronger! I totally PLANKED for 30 seconds TWICE! 3 weeks ago I could not plank for 5-10 seconds without collapsing. Woohoo!
4. (But most certainly #1 here!) My newest nephew has joined us and I was blessed enough to be there!
Meet Anson Wayne Ballenger.
9 pounds 1.6 Ounces
Cutest little boy ever!!!! Adorable!
And big! He’s a chunk! Love me some baby fat!
Vicki, my best friend of 30 years, her husband Kenny brought their 3rd beautiful baby into this world and again they allowed me to be a part of his arrival. I have been a part of all of their births and I am so blessed that she loves me enough to want me to be there when her little angels are brought into this world.
Here’s the proud daddy, Kenny. Sorry no pics of proud mama. After baby was born he took straight to the nip and I wasn’t about to put a pic of that on here. lol! It doesn’t offend me in the least… but I’ll be darned if my bff wants her boob on here. HA!
Vicki had a very fast Labor. I barely made it there. I got the text after the gym and rushed home to shower thinking I had plenty of time. Nope. She had a 3 hour and 10 minute labor. I seriously walked into the room and 15 minutes later he was out! I am glad this labor was short. Her last 2 were not. She deserved a short one!
So yeah… Reason #4 is really reason #1 because nothing makes my day brighter than my bff and fam with a new happy healthy baby!
But since we are going in order…
Well ok! On my way! What a day!
All 5 ready to go!
Maiden voyage on my fixed Quad!
Chillin’ on the hill!
That’s all for me folks!
