We had another new bird on the sunflower seed feeder today!
He's a Black-headed Grosbeak! Not a great picture, as I had to sneak up on him! He's got a seed in his mouth! Cute! Prior to seeing him, there was another bird on the feeder that I didn't recognize, but it flew away before I could get a photo. Come to find out, it was probably his mate because it was a female!
This is a photo from the internet, but that's her!! Sweet!
We also have a couple of sweet tiny Yellow Warblers hanging around, but they are too quick for me!! Here's what they look like...
Happy Pink Saturday to you all!! Please visit our hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for this weeks Pinkies!!!
Saw this lovely little purse on eBay, and I'm considering bidding on it :-)
This a new little dresser scarf. The trim is the perfect shade of pink!!
How sweet is this little sewing kit? Look at the tiny little pink scissors! I love it! It stays in my travel bag..like we do much traveling LOL! But. if we do, I'm prepared!
and last, but not least, I'll leave you with my sentiment for today. "Best Wishes" for a very PINK weekend!! I'm off to the thrift stores in a bit to see what goodies I can find for Monday's "Today's Thrifty Treasures"!
I know that yesterday was Mother's Day, but I just came across these old photos that I thought I would share.
My mom's HS graduation photo..
Patricia Ann Riley. Would have been around 1948, I believe. Love the rooster scatter pins on her sweater!
My grandmother..... Edith Irene (Holmes) Riley. Taken in the 40's sometime, I'm sure. She passed away several years ago. We called her Nannie. She was a statuesque lady of 5' 8"in her younger years, but oteoperosis did it's damage and prior to her death she was about 5" or so. Yes, I take my calcium :-)
This is my favorite...
Mom, Nannie and Grandma Holmes (May Elizabeth), my great-grandmother, at the beach around 1945. Beautiful women all, and I'm proud of where I come from.

I found a lamp to go with the shade I found last week. Here's the lam turned on...
Here it is turned off.
This green shade was on the new lamp, and it fits perfectly on the milk glass lamp I found last week but forgot to post.
My best find was this awesome wicker chair. It's in great shabby condition and the perfect shade of old aqua!!
Is't this farmer cow adorable??
Here's his face.
I love this little tea bag holder.
Found these new shoes. They are just like the ones I found in this post!
Another sweet tiny birdhouse...
And an awesome Martex 100% cotton sheet in a lovely shabby rose print. This will make a lovely house dress don't ya think??
I adore these sweet little plates..
I also found this neat iron deco thingie, painted a heavenly pink. It is missing two leaves, where the x's are, but we have them and just need to fasten them back on. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet!
Well, those are my treasures for this week! See ya next week!
I'm a mother to one awesome young woman, ,grandma to four sweet girls and one ornery boy, AND I'm now a GREAT gramma! I live to garden, love to sew and craft. I enjoy nothing better than to kick back with a good book!
