and while mostly I was buying Indian turquoise and silver jewelry,
we did pick up a few rugs and pieces of pottery.

Sue said...

What I would give to have a scale like yours! That is one thing I always look for when I'm out shopping. Alas, no luck so far...
Love the Indian rugs. Growing up in NM, I saw them often. Cool pics you've come up with while playing, BJ.
hugs, Sue

Love, love LOVE all the wicker. And I like how you played with your photo program...it's so fun, isn't it? And quite addictive too. Oh and Ingrid. I was just listening to As Time Goes By yesterday as a matter of fact. Yes indeed...you need to BUY that movie. I watch it often.

LEGEND OF MARY'S BEAN is my Friday blog.

Have a great weekend.

Kathleen Grace said...

Wow! $2.00 for those awesoms scales!? What a deal. I always love all the pretty touches you have throughout your gorgeous home. The wicker adds such beautiful texture and interest and I don't think I have ever seen your Navajo items. Just another beautiful eclectic touch:>) Alwaays something fun to see here BJ!

Love how your olden wicker suitcase, reminds you of 'Casablanca.' It's whimsical and "so you" to do that. And another reason you are so much fun!

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Love your suitcase!

Congrats to the winner. I had a wicker picnic basket like that that I stored cassette tapes in when they were big. I have had such computer problems I have been missing a lot. My son fixed it this week, I hope. LOved all the pics.

Good Morning BJ! I love your photo's...you do such a nice job of them. Congrats to your winner! I used to sell those wicker suitcases in my store and I had one myself..you could store a lot of things in those and they always looked nice. You're missing the little bamboo piece that keeps your latch locked down...wouldn't take much to keep it locked. Your breakfast made me hungry...you always make your meals look so good. I need to start doing that but between letting all the chickens out and geese and feeding all the animals ...I get a little side tracked and don't think about it! Oh well..no more excuses. Have a WONDERFUL weekend....Maura :)

Lavender Cottage said...

You have a knack for picking up wonderful treasurers BJ. Enjoyed seeing them all and congrats to the winner of your giveaway.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh my goodness!!! Thank you so much!!! I am so excited. I can't wait to take a look around the CSN site. And I LOVE your basket.

Julie said...

Ohh - I love that basket BJ!! Great find!

We are going to the Caribbean on Celebrity.. for 7 days. Can't wait.. this is our first cruise. I have lots of questions though. I saw your Alaska pics - Beautiful!!

Marie said...

I love the way you shoot your accessories! Do you have a point and shoot digital camera or is it one of those cameras with lenses? Or maybe you're really a great photographer. Me...no talent in taking photos (sigh).

And I especially love the vintage scale...$2 dollars??? That's a steal!

LV said...

You have some very nice wicker pieces. I am sure the winner of your giveaway will be most pleased. It was a great one. I hit the wrong post and published pink Saturday and had to get it back in a hurry. Just another senior moment. It will be there Saturday as it is supposed to be.

Holly said...

I am so coming back when the kids are off at their playdates! That is a great suitcase! I have been snatching up vintage suitcases - I have 2 matching leather ones, but I would love a wicker one! I so much enjoyed seeing all of your fun things and am looking forward to more!

Nana's Fun Stuff said...

Good Morning BJ Sweetie...
OMG, you are sharing that desk again. Now I almost came over and claimed it the last time, but I will tell you, it is a good thing I am under lock down for another whole week, I might just be knocking at the door. BJ it is so beautiful. And your suitcase, how devine is that? I love it sitting next to the desk. Yes it does look like Casablanca.

My favorite hat is the one with the blud polka dotted band. It is precious and looks so Summery. (is that a word summery? well if not it is now.) I love the look sweetie.

Your scale for $2.00 was a steal at that. It looks in such great shape. Oh gosh don't you just love a great deal?

Stop by and say hi. I love it when you do sweetie. Have a beautiful Friday.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
