Don't think I've shown you some of my favorite finds...the pictures are awful, but you can see the silver through the tarnish...hey wait...I like the tarnish best...most of the time.

Found this chair roadside as we were taking our boy to catch the shuttle for Basic Training...he did not want me to stop, but what's a junkin' girl to do?!! Turns out it is a match to a straight chair I already have in my den...meant to be, I tell ya, meant to be!!

 Found these at Goodwill a few years back. They have been hanging near my laundry room door ever since I brought them home. I finally looked on the back and realized they were individual typeset letters held together by tape...go figure!

My favorite find is this iron Peace Sign! I found it at a local antique mall and it said, "Here's your sign artteachergirl!" It made me buy it...made me...really!

I hope all of you are still out there, it's been so long since I've posted anything. This summer has been a rough one...my boy moved way out to Colorado to be in the Air Force Band and though I am bursting at the seams with pride, I miss him terribly!! Also, I discovered a few weeks ago I have breast cancer. I'm going to be a little busy over the next few weeks and I hope you will be busy keeping me in your prayers. With God's help I can do this, after all, He has me in the palm of His hand in a very tight grip. So, don't go away, I'll be around, but sure need your positive thoughts and prayers. I'll be seeing you soon...
