Explore and Find


This is the first night, I have felt rested enough to actually write my blog, other than updating on my dad.   He is still doing well and improving.  🙂

I will try to catch up a little with what’s been going on with me, otherwise.

My daughter and I am continuing to explore flea markets, we have not been to, in our area.

Here are some of our finds.

  • a pair of candle sticks 
  • a old blue, heart shaped bottle with cork
  • another pretty plate
  • 7 new thimbles for my collection
  • a bobbin spool

I fell for this 1950’s Singer Featherweight, but was 400 dollars short.  😦

It was a beauty, in mint condition, with original case and tools.

I think that was probably the first time, I truly felt regret at not being able to purchase my find.  🙂

Okay, enough about my flea market finds.

It has been in the 70’s and 80’s this week.  I have irises coming up, more lilies blooming and even my miniature rose bushes are looking pretty and green.

Hopefully they will not get hit by a cold snap, but a lot of times, around Easter we will have a cold spell.  I guess I’ll see in a few weeks.  🙂

I haven’t worked on much of my crafts this week.  
I hope to get back in the groove, this weekend and next week.
I guess that’s it for this evening.  
Here’s wishing you a fabulous Friday!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Hi Sonia –

    I'm glad your Dad is improving. 🙂

    I also have a thimble collection, but haven't added to it since my husband died. We liked to pop into antique malls and see if we could find something unique, but not too pricey.
