Sue's boy Bryce...

a vintage cash register drawer that I placed

on our coffee table filled with old family photos...


and last but not least my best score of the week!!!

Amy's friendship over the blog has been such a blessing to

me and when we finally met I was giddy with excitement!

It's SO nice seeing the store I use to know, the store I use to work at until I got cooties!! I love your displays, they always look great. I miss all the displays at Country Roads and hope to be well soon and back by Friday, I hope! And I really, really missed seeing Amy!! I had so looked forward to seeing her. Thanks for sharing what I haven't seen lately!

Take care, Sue

Hi Kate,
I sooooo wish I lived at least within driving distance. I love that headboard, I'm actually in the market for a new one and that would be perfect. Your displays are always fantastic, I just pour over the pictures trying to absorb the inspiration.

Joyfully,
Elizabeth Ann

JUST LOVE YOUR FINDS!! Love your style... I just found your blog...

It's Just Me said...

Howdy Kate,
How are ya my friend? I'm doing MUCH better. I'm home from the hospital (2days now). Surgery went ok. After a 5hour surgery, they say that they got everything (we will know for sure on the 15th). Anyhoo, enough of that, lol. Your post today is, as usual, beautiful. I love the lil' girl statue. She's precious. You also gave me a great idea. I think I'm gonna place a vintage wooden butter bowl filled with family pictures on my coffee table (when I'm up and moving around of course). I can def. go threw pictures while in bed : ). Anyway, thank you for your friendship and your words of encouragement while I went through this. It meant so much to me. I consider you a true friend.
Many hugs
~ Deanna
