This and That

Like the title says....this post is a little bit about this and that....so, here we go....

New items are in the shop....some of which were hard to let go of....and there's a little sale on the horizon....starting on Dec. 3rd....I'll post about that tomorrow.

And I started thinking...I don't believe I've ever showed you our sweet pups....so I'd like to introduce you to Oliver (above). He's our terrier mix and he's the old man on the farm...look at those eyes....love this guy....

and this is Sophie our white german sherpard.

Look at that face...sweet as apple pie....at least to us....you see....she's overly protective. Poor mailman had to get out his pepper spray one time...hence the new white picket fenced in yard.

We've now finished playing with dirt...and are now onto playing with rocks. We're installing (well I don't mean us literally) a granite wall on our property...love how this is coming along.


And last week was my 38th birthday....and my husbands 42nd birthday.


For his birthday I gave him a Blu-Ray player he had been wanting...and for mine....he gave me a beautiful red rose. Now, it may seem to some of you...all he got you was a red rose...well, that's all I needed...you see...he spoils me all year.

Example....

Yesterday, he was online looking through Ebay, and found something that I have been wanting for at least 8 years...I even had a photogragh of one of them on your fridge for years....


A 1949 Ford truck....


And guess what...


We're going to go pick it up today (it's only 30 miles from us)....


I'm truly the luckiest girl....


He makes me feel like it's my birhtday everyday....

16 Years of Pure Happiness

Today Mr. Plains and I celebrate 16 years of marriage...aka pure happiness. He is my best friend, flea market buddy, and the love of my life.

The photo above was taken at the Colosseum in Rome....a totally spur of the moment trip that was the most fun...can't wait to do it again!

I love you babe...and can't wait to grow old with you.

And here are some of the Bella goods I brought home this year...

A beautiful tin crown and oil lamp bottle from the wonderful Carol at Raised in Cotton, a great fabric measuring tape from French General {I attached it to the front of my worktable} and a gorgeous ruffle tote from the cute as a button Jeanne from A Bushel and a Peck.


Below is Carol's space...I always love seeing her displays...


and that's it....because of course....wouldn't you know....
