Blog Anniversary Week!!!

Blue Creek Home will celebrate it’s 2nd anniversary on Thursday. I will be having an Anniversary giveaway –more on that tomorrow.  I am excited about it!

I hope everyone had a marvelous Memorial Day.  G-Man bought a new smoker and he smoked everything in sight!!!  The turkey breast, chicken halves, and the Conecuh sausage were unbelievably tasty and tender. Of course, we all ate too much and swore we would never do it again.  We know how that goes!

As usual,  I am starting  off my blog week by sharing some thrifting finds that I have acquired in the last few weeks. 


A Vintage Junk Vignette 
I decided to have a formal photo shoot.

Everything is happily grouped together for the first shot.


This lovely Nippon sugar bowl was in a boxful  of stuff I got at an auction.


Sister #4, who is my personal junker!!, found this for a song.


The image is printed on satiny fabric.

I think I will leave her ‘as is’.


Sister #4 also found this silver plate salt and pepper set for me at an estate sale

They had a $20.00 price tag, but she got them

on the last day of the sale for $3.00!!!!
