A busy weekend!

Pin It Now!

I was so busy this weekend that I didn't get a chance to take any photos for my blog so you'll have to settle with a photo I took of Beau about a week ago. I walked into the living room and found him sitting in the chair with his leg up on the arm just cracked me up so I quickly grabbed the camera! He really thinks he's a little man, I'm sure of it!

Saturday morning my phone rang at 7:00 am. I knew right away it must be my friend Nelson, he's the only one that ever calls me that early! He was on his way to the Santa Cruz Flea Market and wanted to see if I wanted to go with him. Of course I did! It didn't even matter that I just woke up 15 minutes earlier, hadn't showered or had any coffee! I threw on some clothes and we were on our way with only a brief stop at Starbucks because I don't function without my morning coffee!!! I'm so glad I went because I found something wonderful and that is why my weekend became so busy! It needed some work so I spent most of the day on Sunday working on it and painting it white. It's just about done and I hopefully will have photos tomorrow!!!

Oh how sweet. I'm betting dogs know much more that we think and who ever thinks they don't have personalities, well all I can say is they don't have a dog. Great lilacs - beautiful.

Hello Cindy and Beau. He looks so
cute with his leg on the sofa arm.
It is amazing how human-like our
pets seem at times.
Can't wait to see your new project!
Here in middle Tennessee we don't
have a lot of flea markets. We only have one at the Nashville
fairgrounds once a month. Also, it
is pretty hard to find a bargain
anymore because most of the vendors
know their merchandise better than
they did years ago.
Hope you have a great week!

Julie said...

Look at that sweet baby!

I was catching up on your blog and want to know where you get your will power??? If I had been in that shop with you, I would have wrecked my financial status! ha ha..

What a cute little doggie! I'm looking forward to seeing what you discovered at the flea market. I'm sure whatever it is you had turned it into a beauty.

Ahh Cindy he is adorable. And quite the little man. That picture is hilarious.
You sure stay busy. I wish I could get half as much done as you do. Looking forward to seeing your find.

He is the little king on his throne. He almost has that look of , Hey, you go fetch me something."
Can't wait to see your new find.

If he is just not the cutest, he grabbed my heart right from me!! Many Blessings, Janna

Chris said...

What a funny picture of your little guy. Mine is the same way, he sleeps under the covers of the bed with just his head poking out.

I can't wait to see what you bought and how you revamped it.

Pink Slippers said...

Handsome fella.

joyh82 said...

Beau is so cute and tiny! Can't wait to see what you have been working on..

Chanda said...

Love the pic of Beau. I have a horse named "Little Man". He has always been such a gentleman since he was a colt, the named seemed so fitting. I chuckled when I read this about Beau. He is a handsome little fella. Can't wait to see your surprise of what you bought and how you fixed it all up.
Love the Lilacs also. They are one of my all time fav's. Avon makes a bubble bath the smells just like them and Bath and Body works makes a room fragrance that is a dead ringer also.

Rosemary said...

I would have gone too!

Cottage Rose said...
