Good morning, all my two followers! lol.

The sun is shining, the pooch is dozing and my kitty is sitting in an open window sill smelling the fresh air. It never ceases to amaze me how weather truly affects my mood. I am more upbeat and optimistic when the sun is out and the birds are singing. Ahhh, spring. I had told my hubby that I felt guilty for being excited about spring as my dad won't be here to see a new one. You know what he said? He said, "Are you kidding? He's in Heaven! He's laughing at us for being excited for spring when he's experiencing so much more!" I thought that was so sweet and so true. He's a good soul my hubby, I think I'll keep him ;) So now I am guilt free and excited for spring!

I realized yesterday that my posts and my blog title don't really jive. I like the idea of writing about anything, day to day adventures, and posting photos of things I love. But the blog itself is about frugal living and well, to be honest, I haven't really shared with you anything "frugal". I do though have tons of treasures packed away in Minnesota. I promise to share with you my Goodwill finds when I get them here to PA.

But for now, how about some pics of the treasures hubby bought me at Cracker Barrel?

These little guys are salt and pepper shakers. I fell in love instantly and was thrilled they were priced at .99 cents/each!

They now reside very comfortably on my pig dressed as a cow spoon holder atop the stove.

My other great find is a tiny jewel box. It has a little bird atop an ornate circular box. It also came in blue, but I prefered the off white. It was all of $3.99! Cinnamon just so happened to come sniffing by just as I snapped the picture. I think it's so cute!

Here's another shot without Cinnamon's help ;)

This little guy is perfect to store hubby's wedding ring and necklace. He works with his hands and can't wear any jewelry. Before, he'd leave his wedding ring on the hand soaps pump handle! It almost fell down the drain a couple of times. And I don't know about your hubby, but my hubby's favorite words are "Babe, where'd you put my....." I put it right here babe, in this cute little jewel box.....

I loove Cracker Barrel. The food, the ambience and the treasures. One day I want to get me one of them their rocking chairs out front. Well, maybe two, one for hubby. I hope your day is filled with little treasures.

  1. Cute stuff and I adore Cracker Barrel. Ooooh-I want some Chicken-n-Dumplins right now! :) Hubby likes the chicken fried steak. I think it's so awesome you can go there and get a good cheap meal and shop too!

  2. Very cute S & P shakers! Looking forward to seeing your other finds.

  3. I forgot that I had a post preset for yesterday- I didn't like it so I took it down quickly ;) I am weird like that. I bet that's why you are having trouble.

    Sending sunshine your way...xoxo Kim

  4. A few people have told me about those S&P shakers. Those are so cute! I may have to go get some of those. :)

    I'm glad you found my blog. Thanks for your sweet email.

    I'm not sure how you would add me as a favorite. Maybe on my profile page? I don't have one of those followers things on my page. Thanks!!
