Pink Bling!

I've been meaning to show you the way cool gift my oldest daughter, Brianna, gave me for Christmas! Yes, I know this is March and I don't mean to play "ghost of Christmas past" but I actually just started using it the other day. It's the grooviest cell phone cover! I hadn't used it yet because when we got our new phones in December, Jim purchased these rubber snap-on covers in hot pink, since I wasn't able to get a pink phone. Those covers, however, do not enclose the screen and I was always leery about putting my phone in my purse, for fear the screen would get damaged. Poor Jim had his in his jacket pocket the other day and accidentally hit it against his car - shattered screen! I decided I'd better switch cases before my phone suffered a similar fate.

Here it is - the new case!
This is the inside. Please excuse the flash but it was a very dark day and no matter what angle I tried, I couldn't avoid that glare! The inside is all soft, like velvet and has a plastic base to snap the phone into. And here's the really cool part:
The outside! It's a sparkly pink color with rhinestone embellishments on the corners and on the magnetic strap buckle. Pink and bling - my favorite combination! I'm so happy with the protection it gives my phone and with the snazzy look! She gave Jim a black one and hers has cats on it. They come in all kinds of designs and models to fit just about every smart phone. I must say, this was one of my favorite Christmas gifts!

Thank you for dropping by! I always appreciate your visit!

My Mind Said What?

7:05 am
 
Good morning all!  I just woke up so confused! I was like, "Is this Saturday? I think it's Saturday.  Oh, yard sales! No, wait, snow on the ground."
 
Then, glancing at his side of the bed, "Oh! Jim's here. Bathroom's available. Did he get a movie role?" This was an hour after I had originally been awakened with remnants of a weird dream running through my pea brain. The setting was gangster 1920's era.
 
The plot involved Jim, the cousin of some mob boss guy, who wanted to get into show biz. His cousin was threatening my boss mob boss guy that he'd squeal to the Feds about all his illegal drinking joints if my boss mob boss guy didn't get Jim lined up with at least two movie roles, some voice overs and a couple of commercials. Nevermind the fact that there's no television, so other than the movie roles he'd have to settle for radio work. After a volley of "yeah, yeah, ya see" and other gangster language, I get stuck dragging the lunk (sorry baby, it's a mobster word) around the studios to get him movie roles.
I then became more awake, shook my head with an audible  "what the?" and slept for another hour. Maybe I'd better go back to sleep and post this later. Or, maybe I shouldn't!
 
 
In my own defense, I must tell you that Jim has been watching some gangster television show on his Kindle, and while I can't see it, I hear all the dialogue while I watch the Olympics. With that combination, I'm surprised there were no high-flying combination luge/ski jump chases in Model-T's!
The dog has nothing to do with the dream. I just thought he was cool!
 
Hey, I can't explain them, I just dream them! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Thought Of The Day

Good morning! I love a morning like this! It's about an hour before sunrise and there's already sweet little birds outside, happily chirping away. You'd think it was a warm spring morning instead of the dead of winter and 20 degrees! That's what's so awesome; it places that peppy feeling in my heart, which can fool my head any day!
 
I hope you find something that gives you a warm, peppy, spring feeling today too!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Leena ♡

18th Annual Ground Hog Day Sale At Lucketts Store!

I finally made it! After living in this area since 1984 and missing 17 previous sales for one reason or another, today I attended the Lucketts Store Ground Hog Sale! If you've read other posts, you already know that Lucketts Store is my favorite vintage and junk haunt, yet ironically, I had never had the pleasure of attending this awesome special sale. Today, there were no disappointments!

Peek-a-boo! Ground Hog banners lined the side porch
 
My daughter and I headed out after the kids had gone to school and were simply giddy with the chance to get out of the house and to do some vintage and junk shopping! The weather was wonderful; in the 40's and mostly sunny! A far cry from the horribly frigid temperatures we've been suffering with. We explored all of the outdoor pavilions, found a few treasures, then headed into the main store for more shopping fun! My back wasn't too happy, so I "tried out" a lot of the chairs that were for sale when I needed a break. There were some really nice chairs there too, but since I've just purchased two new ones, I passed.
 
Lucketts Store has just about everything - including a kitchen sink or two! We took quite a few pictures with our phones, so I'll let them do most of the talking.

I love old car sections mounted on walls! 52 Chevy Deluxe doors
 
Old doors and windows are abundant!
 
Doe, a deer, I see three deer! Vintage garden pets!
 
    Cute vintage garden guy
 
        My daughter with one of the awesome sets of lockers. They came in all colors!

I call him Mr. Big Head

If this weren't so huge, it'd be in my kitchen now!
 
Squirrel Man Looking Very Dapper!
 
Fun collection of vintage clocks!
 
             I swear this water buffalo's eyes follow you everywhere! Check out the great selection of western boots next to him from Boots and Burlap!

Sir Frankie's Seafood and Friends! I want the cow!
 
The Lady of the Hour - The resident Ground Hog! You never know what she'll be wearing. Today, it was a Sale T-shirt, pink and white pearls and a rhinestone tiara! Isn't she Divine? 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading about our fun shopping day! If you're in the Leesburg/Lucketts, VA area this weekend, you might want to check out the sale! Saturday and Sunday, 10-5.
 
Coming next........what we bought!
 
Hugs, Leena
