Here are some of the items in the 40 grab bag:
Sparkly bird ornament, little bird nest, damask tote bag, old keys, Vera Wang perfume, galvanized tin... so much more! The more I read on the more excited I was about the prize!

{Fun in the Sun}

Hi Ya!!!

Taking a little break for the usual "junk" to post some of our vacation pictures from Virginia Beach!

 Who doesn't love the Beach? The sand, the sun, the water and of course all the beachy decor ?

Of course I am still looking for some drift wood, no luck this trip either! oh well! I guess I will just have to go back to the beach soon. Real soon.

This is Cheyenne's first big trip anywhere and 10+ hours in the car and she was AMAZING! I am so blessed to have a happy girl! She loved the sand so much she tried eating it the first time. Yuck! That wasn't so good! After that she learned to play with it! She even covered mommy's feet in the sand! She is such a water baby so of course she loved the ocean water too!

Thanks again and Enjoy a little of the beach life.....ahhhhh!

It was chilly that day!

{Fall is in the Air}

Finally! Whew! After taking a "blogging break" for the past two weeks, I can now say I am almost finished with decorating our great room!

Lots of pictures and very little writing! I would say this is blogging heaven. Of course, I would love to be a professional photog, but I am not.  :)

Enjoy and Happy September!
