Kailyn Grace.....

 As some of you guys know, I  have not been posting as much this summer because we'v been busy getting ready for a new little arrival!  She arrived on Thursday and boy did she come in a hurry!  Kate went in at 5am and was told she wouldn't be having her for 10 to 12 hours.  Once they got everything ready to go, that little girl came out in 2 pushes!  I was supposed to get there around 10am or so but got a call at 9:40 saying I had 10min maybe to get there!  So, you know I missed it, got there 5min after!  Both are healthy and happy. She weighed in at 6lbs 5ozs and was 19".  She's such a itty  bitty little thing, her head is about the size of a baseball and she's long and skinny!  She's going to be a tall one if she grows into those feet  (both her parents are tall) and  of course I think she's adorable!  

Here's Kate the day before,  ( I sure didn't look like that  at 9 months)!

The happy Mom,  Dad and baby

Happy Momma  and Kailyn Grace

Can it get any better!

Till next time......

My Beachy Inspiration......

If summer brings to mind anything, it's the beach!  There are so many things that make me think of beach
the minute I see them.   Here are some of my favorites!
(All photos from Pinterest but have included sources when available)

Being from CA, I love this!

How romantic!


I could stay here forever!



How cute are these!


My grandma had this type of furniture in her patio room, I
found  a chair, couch, coffee table and end table at a yard
sale for $75.00!   SOLD!

I bought a necklace similar to this in Hilton Head
for Christmas last year  for $20.00!

I almost have enough oars to do this!

How cool is this nautical cake!


Come on in!


Isn't this beautiful!

love this pic!

The perfect place to spend the summer!

Till next time.....

Slim Pickens.....

I don't know how yard sales are going where you all live, but around here, they are pretty slow and mostly have clothes and toys.  Even so, I've managed to find some good stuff.  Here are a few photos of some of the things I've found.  I'll be showing you more later.

These are vintage Tell City, Hitchcock style chairs that I got for $50.00 which is a steal!  Even though the paint is worn, (which I love), they are in excellent shape.  There are 3 side chairs and 1 arm chair.
Since I'm trying not to become a hoarder, (I know my kids would debate that),
they are now in my booth waiting for at new home.

These Christmas things I got at a Church sale.
Since Kate is just starting out in her new home, she doesn't
have a lot of holiday decorations, I think these will be a
good start for her.

This Santa was $1.00

I love books, especially children's books and have a nice collection.
With the new baby coming, I can start a little collection for her, I think this will be a 
good one for her 1st Christmas, and, it was only .25cents

This Santa and candle holder was .50 cents,
how cute is this!

Till next time.....

This week I will be partying at:
