Happy Sunday Everyone!

I hope this post finds you all enjoying your family, friends, or just hanging out and relaxing today! It started out a warm 35 degrees here in Illinois this morning......and I am just waiting for it to reach the high of 65 they are promising.....:)

In the meantime I thought I would show you a few items I did pick up of my TS finds this week. This first one is a great candle scoop, that I want to redo and hang in my small bath. I am still working on that room.......trying to gather up all the prim things that I just have to have, before getting it painted. I am having such a difficult time deciding what color I want in there......but I do know that I want the accent to be navy blue, so I am leaning towards a really prim beige or taupe. Now to find that perfect shade. Anyway I will most likely redo this scoop in navy and add the prim fixins of a candle stick and possibly and old label bottle of some sort........I will post pics when I get it done.

I was thrilled when I found this recipe holder! My recipes are such a mess, as I have them scattered everywhere, stuck in this book, and that book, so this will force me to get them organized and all in one place. This is so has a space to the side to hold a cookbook or two......the lid opens up and there is a space to hold your recipe......and then we have the bottom drawer for storage. I can see the bottom drawer propped open and some prim candles poking out, with some drieds.

I have been looking for a new set of canisters for quite some time. I found these last week at a garage sale that I attended to benefit Relay for Life. Of course the little blue houses on the bottom have to go, but I do love the wood lids. These will be such a space saver on my counter!
Well that is about it for today......I am headed outside to get some yard work done, since the sun has finally come out to warm things up a little. See you all again soon!
