Friday Favorites

My favorites this week:

This Rosary and Rosary case that I picked up at a Church sale for twenty-five cents! As soon as I saw this rusted old case I had to give it a home.

This old cabinet we picked up at a warehouse in our area that sells both fine antiques and the not-so-fine antiques (which is what I love best!). We use it in our back porch room to store paper goods, plastic utensils, and sunscreen.

These are just a few of the seashells we've collected. These sit on a shelf under a glass-topped coffee table outside on our back deck.

My last favorite this week is something I love to eat in the summer. A bowl of blueberries and blackberries. For some odd reason I do not enjoy eating blueberries by themselves, and I do not enjoy eating blackberries by themselves, but when I mix them together I love them! And if I put whipped cream on top I love them even more!

Weekend Forecast:
Well, I'm pretty much on my own this weekend. Saturday morning Ray will be golfing with his brother Donald and our son Erik, and then he has to work all night Saturday night, so I don't think he'll be raring to go when he walks in the door Sunday morning.
I think I'll just do something boring like organize my spring/summer clothes and clean out my bedroom. And I think the weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend so I'm definitely going to try and spend some time outdoors too! I may try to tackle painting a few pieces of furniture if I feel ambitious, but I think I'll most likely opt to spend my free time relaxing on the back deck with a book and a glass of iced tea!
Anybody have any interesting plans this weekend? Tell me all about it!
Diana, you have your daughter's graduation, right? Enjoy!
Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. So, if I get rusted enough, you will take me home too? I'm still delighted that you treasure these things that others might consider garbage worthy...thank goodness God doesn't do that with us, but He, like you, treasures us with all our rust spots!!!
    I will have plenty of black raspberries as well as some blueberries this summer...wanna come over? I'll even whip up some cream!



    p.s. Pls tell Ray to give you an extra hug because you're just so darned cute!

  2. Yes Eileen, today is Katie's last day of eighth grade and I am a bit emotional today. My husband got home last night and has already been helping me. I have the whole week to myself next week and am very excited about it! I loved your favorites today Eileen, don't know that I will have time to blog much this weekend,but I should have lots to blog about Monday night when everybody is gone! Enjoy your alone time!!

  3. Love the old cabinet that you use for anythink other than what it's supposed to be used for. Sunscreen etc. Love it!

  4. Those berries look scrumptious!I used to pick wildberries by my old apartment and put them on my oatmeal each morning in the summer...nothing like getting fresh berries and for free!:o)
    God bless!

  5. Thanks for the comments, everyone!
    And, Marcy, wouldn't that be nice if we were neighbors and could pop over for a visit every now and then?!
    Post lots of pictures of your garden, I want to see your progress!

    Diana, all the best to your daughter! I know the wealth of emotions you are feeling right now.
    And enjoy your alone time too!
    I can't wait to hear about everything! Take pictures!

    I love visiting everybody's blogs!

  7. Hi Eileen, What lovely treasures you have found. I love blueberries. When I was little we would pick them on my uncles farm. Sooo delicious ♥
