Mrs. Curl's

There is a wonderful place in our town of Greenwood called Mrs. Curl's and it's finger-linkin' good. It's probably one of the best places to have ice cream and fun summer time atmosphere all at the same time. After graduation, a couple weeks ago, the whole fam headed over to enjoy some yummy treats and good hang out time.

Places like this just bring out the lovin'.

My cute parents - still in love and loving life. Don't they look like a couple of teen-agers flirting with each other? I just love it!

Did I Mention...

...that Yard Sales are the best places for really great photos? Check out this fabulous old pink car we saw while browsing the sales yesterday.

And we saw this great children's desk. Trust me, if we had kids, it would so be ours.

There was also an electric plane for sale that was pretty photo-worthy as well.

Around the House Saturdays - Yard Sale Edition

The Hubby and I have proclaimed this "the Year of the Yard Sale." It's unbelievable the amazing treasures we have purchased this summer. Each time we got yard salin' we take $20 with us - no more, no less. It's the perfect amount to search for deals and get some good ones. Well today was definitely a good one. Probably not as good as the one two weeks ago when the Hubby got his miter saw for that amazing steal, but nonetheless, this was a GOOD one. And it all revolves around this green chair.
Yes. This avocado beauty was just a-callin' my name...and for only $5 it had to be mine. BUT there was a dilemma. Where would we put it? That, my friends, was the challenging question. Where in our lovely abode could we put this amazing piece of decor? Storing it was not an option and with the ever-growing furniture in my studio, it wouldn't work in there. So with sad looks on our faces and heavy hearts, we decided there was no place for it. Fortunately we didn't make it very far from this family's yard because this chair had us in its trance. At the moment of defeat, my Hubby looked at me and said, "I'm putting the ball in your court. If they'll take $4 for it, it's ours. BUT I'll only store it in the garage for up to one week. If you can't find a place for it, we're finding it a new home." So with a happy and hopeful heart, I went up to the sellers and said, "Will ya take $4 for it?" And sure enough, they did!
Getting it into the car was quite an adventure. But we got it in, nonetheless. Above is the face of a Hubby who's thinking, "The things I do for my wife." Well, later this afternoon, the Hubby and my Lil' Bro headed off to the race track for some "guy time" and I got to work at finding a place for the chair. Oh did I ever. It took some moving around of things, but nothing that couldn't find a new home. So here ya have it:
It sits perfectly in the "dining room" area beside the buffet and it looks stunning! The Hubby is on his way home right now, so I can't wait to see his reaction.
So there ya have it, folks. A new piece of beautiful, functional furniture for less than $5. Now that's a deal!

Historic Downtown Franklin is one of our most "favoritest" places on the Southside of Indy. It's filled with charm, antiques, and of course, the best fabric store in the world, Clementine's. While the folks were here a couple weeks ago, we headed down there to partake in the beauty.

[I know I'm still updating you guys on events that happened 2 weeks ago, but I've been non-stop all over the place with very little time for blogging and what-not. I promise, I'm back at it now friends.]

Today (June 24) the Hubby and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. It was filled with good food, lots of hugs and kisses, and me coming home to this beautiful surprise...

I was so excited when I saw it that I actually cried. I've been wanting a vintage sewing machine for quite some time...and now I have it. The table has lots of perfect space for me to set up my machine on and I can pull out the vintage one to stare at any time I want. *Sigh* He spoils me rotten...and I love him!
