Helo there dearest, welcome to my blog. The best place for me to express what I love most. All my love of vintage things. I mostly love the Victorian era as well as things from the fifties.. I love to cook and bake and spend time with my family. I thought and believed I loved Autumn the most, but I've come to find each special thing about each season, to find the beauty in it... And through blogging I have found those things... I have surrounded myself with all the things that I love... Victorian depression glass, teapots and cups linens and lace... I also crochet vintage doilies as well... I hope that you enjoy each and every visit with me... *HAPPY SPRING LOVES....*

Hello ....

     Hello good morning everyone, it is cold this morning sweeppea's feet are cold and she keeps walking over my legs with them and o my....   She is so tiny o sweeppea you say who is she she is my mini chi...  She is six years old now...  
     This is my favorite window...  I try to keep little flowers there so when I walk by to the kitchen or to the bathroom I get a little good feeling...  I moved my tiny christmas tree there to..
     Yesterday I went in the garden and to my surprise the purple daisies had made some blooms...
     I have a lot of things here with greens as well ....
     Golden birds...
     I have been washing all the things on my hutch, so full of dishes and what nots, this is just from one shelve...



    Still got a few more tomato's ....
     The little rose I picked by mamas house..  This house I admired ever since I was a little girl...  It always seemed like a rich person's home when I was little..  One day maybe I can take photos of it..  The tiny pink smelling so wonderful roses hang over a wooden fence taller than me...  They smell so good.. .   I picked two and brought them home and they are in the kitchen window...
   I love my blue glass to me there is nothing like it when I awaken and the sun is shinning through them in the morning, or afternoon...

     My back door, with window placks ....  I have had them forever, the moon thermometer and the rose maybe 35 years...  The humming bird mama gave me about 25 years ago..  And the pink flowered one is hers I recently brought from her house...


     The windows get wet in the winter and I have to wipe them down over and over...
     I love this ole coffee grinder....
     The other kitchen window...

     My violet blooming again...  The others have not and I don't know why...
     This one is huge it is like three plants in one ... It is really healthy but no blooms... This I call the majic window all the plants get so big in this window...
     It looks like a jungle there...

     My hanging ducks... A wind chim...  But I think they would break in the wind...  There are ceramic...

   Windows with pretty things to see...  Have a lovely day all with love Janice...

Tuesday chatter with me...

     Well beautiful morning to you dearest...  I'm up early to wash the sofa cover and I couldn't sleep anymore..  I awoke around 6:30 am...  So I thought while my daughter and two grandson's are still sleeping I would wash the sofa cover..  She has laundry all day everyday, never ending with the boys... How was your thanksgiving, I hope it was wonderful..  Mine was just that..  Pretty peaceful at mama's house with my daughters and my one younger son his baby and five other grandchildren.. .  When we are there all together I think of mama and how we hadn't done anything in years she never really wanted to my papa did though he liked family together all the time..  He was the only one I aloud to take my two chikdren at the time..  I wasn't big on people taking my children.  This was in his sober years.  And my kids loved my dad to pieces... 
     Tea this morning is with my new yellow teapot and pink...  And a touch of aqua..  .  Gosh can you believe Christmas is around the corner..  I'm excited i had stopped celebrating Christmas because of the religion I was involved in...  But I have left the organization after learning some things..  And I'am very happy now and so content with the new church that Jesus has led me to...  Anyways I'm excited...  I been dreaming in my head of a gold Christmas....  I have a old old silver christmas tree it has a wooden base and you stick the branches in...  And recently I found gold little ornaments thrifting with my daughter in law...
     This teapot is plain jane, but it has some little features that I like...
     I like the shape of it and the ribbed handle and edgings...
     This is my rose baby , I got her years and years ago...  I think it was a dollar store..  This type of stuff was a thing for a while..  I have a bunch of bears as well and little girls.. .  
     Little baby sitting inside of a rose , so cute...
     And this is the tiniest christmas tree ever...  I found one day on my papa's truck..  (For those of you who don't know he had his own business cleaning out estates etc...). I've had it forever as well.. .  I don't think it is a half in high...

     Teacup set is from Homer Laughlin and I love this set..  I have several sets of this and a large bowl one day I hope to own other pieces...  One day ..
      My sweet yellow bird that I found months back thrifting...  I don't thrift much anymore one my car isn't working right still..  And I don't need much in fact I really don't need anything..  But once in a while to get out and about I will go...  I have so many things plus some of the things from mama...  And believe it or not I'm still going through things, mama had over bounds of stuff...  I still have half of a basement and a attic to go through..  So we are focussing on another city pick up mama's neighbor said I could use his 20 items...  Yay, so excited about that.  I wish everything else would fall into place, I'm still going in circles which I don't understand why..  But thats a long story...  


     Today I will be working some more on the living room the holiday cut it off for a few days..  So I have yet to finish...  But I did yesterday get some other things done in the kitchen taking things down from the wall and washing them clean the sink area really good bleaching it etc...  The drain board...  Lol I have had it forever in this blue color and it is a old wire rack with the coating..  I scrub it all the time and the drain part...  But it is falling apart and I'm so sad because what rubbermate has now is garbage.. .   I can't find nothing at all..  And then there are these little bitty things..  And there is no blue at all. Red black and white I think, but they are flimsy..  I wish they'ed come out with some nice aqua ones like these..  The wire with the coating I would be in heaven ...  It has been rainning but this morning the sun is out.. But it is crispy out...  To chilly for clean up on the garden..  I still need to clear out my tomato plants they finally went down..  .   What will you be doing today...  Whatever it is I hope your day is lovely..  
                        
     This is my oldest daughter Stephanie and me behind her...  We are at church on this past Sunday...  It was a amazing day with the Lord and my new family...  Stephanie I almost lost a little over a year ago to suicide and I'm so very grateful that the Lord seen fit for her to stay here in this world..  She has joined me on my journey with the lord and was delivered a couple weeks ago..  She said her life has completely changed...  This was a day indeed the paster had come to speak and he said you know someone not to long ago wanted to die with a bunch of pills we were standing up in front at the alter... Amongst other prophets...  And we were praying and singing and paster came down off the stage and was talking and praying over folks he came to me and briefly touch my head and right away went to my daughter put his hand on her forehead and started praying over her and she broke into tears and bishop came and other prophets behind to pray over her, And later she told me mama I don't what happened but when paster touched my forehead and starting praying my life  changed...  And she hasn't been the same, her panic has gone down, her attitude has changed she is full of positivity and life...  I can't even explain it all...  But even after the suicide atempt she wasn't right I had thought she would never be the same and she would try again..  Because I kept hearing all bad in her..  The Lord, and thank the Lord has changed her he has blessed her and me with this amazing gift...  I really can't explain what I feel..  But I do know this...  If you truly believe. Ask and seek him he will give you what you need...  I just had to share this with you all...  I'm so. Very happy for her... And my grandbabies because it affects them as well...  Keep your faith and trust and never let go for nothing or no one.. .  All things ARE possible with God and our Lord Jesus Christ... 
   πŸŒ²πŸŒ·πŸƒ❄️I wish you dearest, the most wonderful enchanting day today, with love Janice❄️πŸƒπŸŒ·πŸŒ²
 Ps....  I almost forgot I made a apple pie crisp...  So yummy..  I didn't want just plain apple pie or a plain apple crisp, so I made two kinds in one...
     A little messy looking I tried to clean it off but wasn't working hehehe....  But so good tell about it soon God bless❄️πŸƒπŸŒ·πŸŒ²

Happy Thanksgiving everyone...

     Just going to share a bunch of things with you this evening...  It is late here like 10:15pm..  So you will probably read this in the morning or maybe Friday because tomorrow is Thanksgiving..  So let me say Happy Thanksgiving to you all and your families and tell you I'm grateful for everyone of you my friends and readers followers ...  This is a random blanket that I started I haven't  a pattern at all just fooling around...  So we will see where it goes..   I'm still cleaning the living room but it is in between cleaning in the dinning room the hall way which is almost done wipe down all the photos on the walls wiped, all the baseboards.  Just need to clean the little table and lift the runner and sweep and mop then vacuum the runner.  The living rm is part done.  The big shelve took a lot of time to wipe down all the videos then each shelf.  
     Lots and lots of videos....   I switched some things around and put aqua colored things 
     I put my owl at the top...
     The little brass figurines I found on dads truck years ago, and I have loved them ever since...
    I love the elephant and the bird then there's two small birds...
     And a big leaf I suppose it was maybe a ash tray or for candy I don't really know...


     I love birds....
     I have a set of Bambi book ends I bought like ten years ago at a little antique shop here in San Francisco...  They are gone now..  At one point there were quite a few in a known area here but they all up and left except one...which I have't been in for years..
     This crystal candle holder is new I found it recently thrifting...  I liked it a lot plus it had the roses wrapped around which made it even prettier..  I had the little aqua candle just waiting to go inside... Its all clean now the large oak shelf...  
     All the pretty boxes are on the right crochet threads and yarns and embroidery things knitting needles pieces of materials...  The little ones are videos  there aren't any closets accept one and we use half for the towels and linens...  And then my daughter uses the other side she only has shelves in her rm. no hanging closet..  I moved the other larger magazine ones on to one side of the shelving bottom they fit fine.  I used to have them on the bench..  Anyways its all clean.. 
     I cleaned this area too removed it all cleaned it all down wiped the baseboards mopped wiped down the painting and the little shelf, climbing all over the place..  Cleaning the cobwebs...  

I recently got this tin from instagram from a sweet lady..  It looks much preetier in person...
              I cleaned all this as well...  
     This is a tiny on cup teapot but its not really big..  But so pretty...
     You all know I'm a big fan of roses anything roses...  

                  I love my angels...  I have several in the living room...


    
     I have more to share but this is already long enough...  I really just to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone ...  I hope you have a wonderful time with your families...
