Fun Saturday with Blog Friends

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~

The tool caddy~

I decided to put my strawberries out~

Some summery flowers on my coffee table~
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!

I wanted to mention a few new blogs that you might want to check out. First is Kathy's blog Coop's Cottage , Carey's blog American Girl Primitives-N-Such,
and Amy's blog At Home With Amy
Stop over and welcome them to Blogland when you get the chance. Well,that's all I have for today. I hope you all have had a good weekend!

Kindra said...

Hi Janae!

I had such a lovely time with you and Sarah yesterday. Just wish the weather was a little bit nicer. Thank you for inviting us into your gorgeous home! It felt kind of surreal being there after drooling over your pictures for months on end on your blog. LOL And the lunch you made was so yummy! Can't wait to get together with you again! Hugs.

Lauren said...

Hi Janae! I glad you had a nice break...I'm ready for my blogging break to be over too. Just another week and a half and I'm free all summer!

What a fun time you must have had:) Blogging buddies are the best...I wish I lived closer to some of you all! I love what you picked up...I'm getting in a summery mood too. I got a cute Americana star thing this weekend at my favorite prim store here (which is CLOSING..Boo Hoo:( !!) and I can't wait to put it out.

Enjoy your evening:)

Everything looks so great Janae, I love the geraniums and the pineapple is really neat. I would love to make some of those this week. I bought some jello molds for pantry cakes to try. Thanks for the shout out about my blog. Next time you're here to visit we must go shopping together!


This Country Girl said...

I've missed you, Janae! Glad you're back! It sounds like you three had such a great time! How nice of you to have them in your home!

I love your tool box with geraniums! Besides decorating for Christmas, summer with all it's Americana is my favorite! Love your strawberries too!

Janene is the sweetest lady! That was so nice of her! I love that pineapple mold! Your pantry cake turned out great!

Have a great week!

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Sounds like you had a great time. I love how your pantry cake turned out. I would love to try some of those one of these days.

I too am a Twilight fan. I hated when I finished the series. They were so good. I read the host too and it was different but good too!

Take Care,

Lisa said...

OMGosh, I love that pantry cake!! I really love your strawberries and your spring flowers. Sounds like you had a WONDERFUL time.

Have a great week!!!


At Home With Amy said...

Janae I couldn't think of a more wonderful thing to do than spend the day out with my mother. I'm sure glad you girls had a good time.
I'm almost done with my Twilight Books but I just can't get the last couple chapters of book 4 read. Call me lazy I guess.
How cool that you got to meet some of your blogging friends. Maybe one day that will happen for me I hope.
I love the tool caddy you found. It looks beautiful with your Geraniums blooming in it. As a matter of fact all your spring decoations look wonderful. Don't you just love pulling all the colors out for warm weather!
On a final note, I want to thank you for listing my blog on yours. Blogging is really fun. I'm so glad I gave it a try.
Have a Blessed Week my Friend,
Hugs ~AMY~

You all had such a good time and maybe the next time it will be better weather:)

Love the tote that you did in black with the geraniums...I'll have to get mine out after all this painting is done:(

The lunch you prepared sounds great and I'm sure you all had a great time!

Hi Janae, welcome back. I sure missed you! Those note cards are so cute. I like your tool caddy. I almost bought one for myself Saturday. Kind of wish I had now! I bet your pineapple pantry cake smells amazing. I LOVE the smell of cloves. Glad you are back in blog town. God bless, Jamie

UPON A HILL said...

That is a nice tool box & like your new banner. Your pineapple pantry cake turned out great!

Holly Hills Primitives said...

Thanks for visiting my porch! Wish all of you blogging gals could come share a parade day with us. It is lots of fun. That old bike has been with me for a long time and I have so much fun with it, you should watch for one at a garage sale! I just spray painted the whole thing and I have one up north at our Little House too. They are really fun to decorate in the fall! Have a great day, Dawn

The Whites said...

Thanks for sharing your weekend with us! Sounds like you had a great time!

Red geraniums are my favorites! I love how they look in that caddy.

I am enjoying my goodies that you sent me so much!

Oh I am so jealous they got to see your house in person! What fun you must have had!! Welcome back - we missed you!

Kris said...

Shopping with friends is so much fun and it sounds like you guys had a great time!

Love the geraniums in the tool caddy and the strawberries look good enough to eat!


Sandy said...

How fun to get together with some blogging friends and of course go out do some shopping. Sounds like you ladies had some real fun.

I love your Spring/Summer displays, especially the flowers. Sure sign that Summer is on it's way.

Have a great day and week :)

I'm so envious of Kindra & Sarah ~ they got to see your beautiful home, LOL. Love your tote with the flowers & those pantry cakes are awesome. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit with your mom & had some time to relax & do some reading. I missed ya.
