Well, I've had a nice little break from blogging and now it's time to get back to it. I had a nice week with my mom. We went shopping, hiking, and just relaxed around the house. I finished the Twilight books and I'm totally obsessed.:-) I cannot wait for the next movie to come out in November.
Well, yesterday was a fun day.Unfortunately we didn't have beautiful weather like on Friday. Instead it was pretty chilly and rainy, but still a fun day. Kindra and Sarah drove from Lincoln and met me at Weathered and Worn in Papillion. We looked around, bought a few things and then headed to Plattsmouth to Wild Horse Antiques. I love that store! There are all kinds of treasures~ lot's for $10 :-) That was the price that kept popping up on everything! I bought a tool caddy there for $10. On the way back to my house we stopped at Goodwill. Not a whole lot there. We had lunch at my house~ chicken salad sandwiches, fruit salad, cheese and crackers, and brownies. After lunch we went to the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. We walked around looking there for quite awhile.The antique mall is right next to the exit back to Lincoln, so when we were done there Sarah and Kindra headed back to Lincoln. It was so great getting together with blog friends. I don't think there are nicer people out there than blog buddies! Kindra and Sarah are such sweet ladies! Kindra brought me the cutest flower stake for my garden. Thanks Kindra~ I love it! I will take a picture of it when all this rain quits. I also bought a little chair flower pot holder that I will post later this week. It's just to rainy to go out and take pictures.
Here are some pics of the tool caddy and some note cards I bought. The tool caddy was unfinished rough wood. I painted it black and sanded it up a bit. I filled it with red Geraniums. I'm starting to get into the Summer/Americana mood and I love red Geraniums in my house for the summer.
Here are the cute notecards I bought~

A couple weeks ago I saw a pineapple mold on Janene's blog, Primitive Lifestyle. I asked her if she was selling it and she said instead of selling it to me she would like to send it to me as a gift. She is so sweet! Thank you so much Janene! I really love this mold. I finally made a pantry cake with it today. First I just rubbed cinnamon all over it and then I decided to add some cloves. The cloves settled in all the creases, so now you can see the lines on the pineapple better. I think it turned out great!
