Overheard at Target . . .

While my mom, Samantha and I were shopping at Target early this week, we overheard a small girl tell her mother, "He's sneezin' and sneezin', Mama. We hafta be careful or we'll catch his allergies!"

Thank you, little one, for a day's dose of healing chuckles and smiles.

Treasures aplenty!

I have been so blessed with thrift store finds lately and they are awaiting their final coat of spray paint before I post befores and afters . . . provided, that is, that I can finally manage to post photos! (Sometimes this blogging newbie gets completely boggled, or should I say "bloggled", LOL?) I am still in awe of the magic contained in a lowly can of spray paint.

My darling mother is also clearing clutter and I was thrilled to volunteer to move some of it to my house! Mom always offers me her no-longer-needed treasures and many find their way home with me, even though our styles are quite different. (If you know me, you would know that clutter is something that grows well in my "garden". It happily trails along, spreading just like ground cover in a planter box and breeding like "Tribbles" in that funny old Star Trek episode. This may well be the only thing I can grow, since houseplants are famous for perishing under the influence of my black thumb.) The funny thing is, I'm trying to clear my own clutter for an upcoming garage sale, and yet I can't resist bringing new treasures home. Hopefully, I'll have pictures to post soon.

Blessings on your own "treasure-filled" day!
