While at Horton's , I saw this cute little farm desk. It was in the farm section of the store....or it looks like a farm section. Pictures of animals, the" farm sweet farm "signs.:) I really like this paint finish , on the desk/chair.
In Tinkerhouse section. I do not know what to call this... it has a glass front, a display case ? cloche? It may have been a candle holder, the top looks vented. I am going to call it charming.
In the front window was this Sweet Tea sign and one for fresh cut flowers. Embroidery hoops with lace.
I liked the nest with the ferns here. The ferns are faux.
This moss covered frog statue would look great in a sunroom, or on a covered porch .
A rack of heavy duty tote bags. Very well made Extra pockets and a wide carrying strap..
I liked this one. It would be great for an ipad and books. Really rugged . I think a young college girl would love this. Hmmm or maybe a teacher.
Had to take our vehicles in for oil changes. Then I had to take my Jeep back for a complete replacement of the tail light socket and memory board. Always something.
This past few days has been nice. Today we are to have rain and I am hoping it isn't much. I want to wish all of you a great Memorial weekend. I always think of this as the unofficial start of summer. Enjoy .XO
That frog sure is cute! Have a wonderful weekend my friend. Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Hi Diane, Hope your holiday weekend is wonderful Enjoy it. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
That desk is simply precious!!! Looks like some of the children and grand children desks, my husband made, over the years. (But his, have a secret compartment in them... .-) )ReplyDelete
And of course, he would strip the desk/chair down, and refinish it. :-) That's just how a woodworker thinks.
Oh the embroidery hoops with lace. How lovely.
Have a safe and lovely weekend!
Tessa, That woodworking thing, I sure know about. Ted works with wood. That is one reason I could not paint the oak shelves he had made for the bathroom. Too nice to paint. That farm desk was cute, the chair had a little wear. I love that your husband made secret compartments in his desks. :) Blessings for a fun filled weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
You certainly saw some nice treasures and probably gathered a few ideas! I also enjoy car racing and it is on my bucket list to go to a NASCAR race!ReplyDelete
Deb, I loved the Nascar races when I attended...but I do not think of them now..different place and time. I think the Indy race is boring but dangerous, that's just me. I hope you get to see a race one day. Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Lots of pretties to look at for sure. Those totes are amazing! I no longer have small children and need a "mom" bag, but I just can't seem to downsize. Maybe someday. Have a great Memorial Day weekend :)ReplyDelete
Karen, My mother always carried a big purse till her last few years. You could fine anything in her bag, plastic eating utensils, slipper socks, last months light bill receipt. LOL. I know mom's bags too. Blessings to you and yours for a fun weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Those tote bags look great. So often I carry my laptop with me, and it looks like it would fit into one of them nicely.ReplyDelete
hi Jo(e), I did think a laptop could fit into the bigger bag. I loved the sturdiness of it. It was about 70 dollars. Blessings to you and yours for a great holiday weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'll take the farm desk and chair please. Lots of neat things to look at but where would I put them?ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, Oh sweetie, I know what you mean about a place for anything. I still love to look at things. This is what I do now, I make what I have over or give it away , if I want something new or different. Blessings to you and Bob for a peaceful weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
charming indeed..Very cute..looks like it could have been a clock..Thanks for taking us to Hortons..always fun..Happy weekend..ReplyDelete
Missy, I do more window shopping than actual buying most times. :) But it is fun to look too. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi, Susie! I still think I need to come to Horton's! Such lovely things you find there! It wouldn't be good for my budget.:-) - xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, Horton's is some local artist/craftmen...so higher than hobby-lobby, but not as high as big city shopping. I do not spend lots on anything but flowers. I feel that is my way of helping to keep a family store open in my hometown. :) You know I just knew you were probably the only teacher invited to that wedding. I am so proud of you for being in the young lady's life. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I have never or heard anyone who has taken their car in for JUST an oil change but what the garage found something else that Needed Done also!!ReplyDelete
It's a gimmick to get your money i'm convinced. Just had to get on my soap box about oil changes haha
Love your window shopping pictures
Linda, I have always asked for the old parts removed...but since my husband was with me, I felt I was being treated fairly. My Jeep is 13 years old. This shop has actually saved me money before...so I trust them... I know a mechanic that is honest is worth his weight in gold. I have been taken before at another shop...I do not go there any more. I surely know what you are saying...I think tricking happens more with young ladies too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, how I miss shopping...looking...I have been doing just the opposite - getting rid of (mostly) too small clothing. It is finally getting nicer here.....70's this week.ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, It's been in the low 80's for a few days...right out of chilly into humidity. If I got rid of more stuff here, I would surely have some closet space. LOL.Hope you and your husband has a wonderful holiday weekend. Love, xoxo, SusieDelete
Wonderful weather here. I wish I had someplace outdoors to go to. You can only sit on the front or back porch so many times. Nobodies home here but me. Arlene is working until 6. If you folks ever get up this way I would happily take you to dinner at Raso's. Fabulous Italian food and we're not talking spaghetti and meatballs here, though I love spaghetti and meatballs. Sorry I started to blog on your comment section.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy, I will sit out front on the porch and write leters...as there's nothing or no one to see out here. I pray lots of the time. When it's quiet it's easier to talk to God. I bet you get stir crazy at times..I do too. Well yes, if ever I come back to Boston and I going to be blogging about it. LOL.It would be grand to meet you and Arlene. I know you being Italian you know the difference between spaghetti /meatballs and real Italian food. LOL Blessings to you and yours for a fun filled holiday weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful treasures Susie. I hope you have a nice Memorial Day Weekend. Hugs, xoReplyDelete
Hi Susie, Hope you are doing well. We are having summertime weather now. It may rain some today and the next two...race time...doesn't it stand to reason? Wishing you and yours a happy loving memorial day. Don't you wish we could all go back in time ...have all our family together again. It's just me today...had to go to a funeral of our neighbor girl from when we were barefoot kids. So hard at times. Blessings, xoxo,love you, SusieDelete
I always LOVE your visits to Hortons, Susie. It is so much fun to see what they have there that is new and different.ReplyDelete
Too bad about your Jeep-but it is always something with cars, isn't it? xo Diana
Diana, I do more window shopping than actual buying.LOL. I just make over things I already have. House and cars...big pain on the pocketbook at times. :) I wish you and your family a great time this weekend Diana. I think you all need it. Please hug John for all of us that can't be there. Love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I really love that frog. Hey Weekend to you.ReplyDelete
Hi Debbyu, I hopeyou and your family have a wonderful weekend also. Ted and I are not planning anything. All the children have many things going on this weekend. I miss the old days when our entire family would be together at mom and dad's house. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi Susie!! What a fun place to visit. Love the moss covered frog.ReplyDelete
Hi Judy, I know you would love Horton's...but I think you are more into the treasure hunting....now that's what I would love to do with you.LOL. I have enjoyed seeing the make over of your new home. How's your daughter doing in your old house? Blessings for a great weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, I love that little desk and would have been real tempted to buy it. The charming little thing is cute and I love little bird nests. It stormed pretty good here today and then cleared off just in time for our grandson's little gradution. So thankful. Happy weekend.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, I love bird nests too , also little ceramic birds. So glad the rains cleared in time for the grandson's graduation. There's many of them going on this weekend. Hope your weekend is a great one. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love shopping through your camera's lens, Susie! Enjoy a beautiful weekend! Blessings, Cindy xoReplyDelete
Cindy, Shopping with pictures is way cheaper, isn't it? LOL. I hope you are going to have a fun weekend. Or at least a relaxing one. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Loved seeing all the pretty things you see! Those totes look amazing!ReplyDelete
You know what? I have some boards all ready to stencil so I think I will make a Sweet Tea sign for ME!!
Linda, I did like the sweet tea sign too. I would have bought one of those heavy totes if I were younger...now I carry as little as possible with me . LOL.Funny how we change thru our lives. Sure hope you are feeling more like yourself . I know LD and the family will take care of you. Blessings to all. xoxo,love you, SusieDelete
What a fun place to visit and shop!!! That would be s fun day!!ReplyDelete
Gert, These kinds of stores are so fun on rainy days to me. I always loved going to the big antique store in the next town. Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Are the pieces you've shared from Hortons antiques or new? Just wondering. How I want to visit Hortons!
The weather here is crazy, I still have flowers to plant and although I have them out there in the rain, they don't so well in those little containers:(
Happy Holiday Weekend to you!
Blondie, At Horton's they do rent out space for venders. So something are old and just made over to look better. Some do themes and some just bring everything. LOL. I know what you are saying about the weather...I am just about ready to go to hobby-lobby and buy all faux flowers...the waiting game has made me nuts. :):) I hope you and your family have a really enjoyable weekend. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I really like that little desk and chair. I'm a sucker for red accents. -JennReplyDelete
I like to see red accents too. Jenn, I hope your weekend is a fun one. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, that little farm desk is so cute. It almost looks like a school desk, doesn't it? Yes, I would call that cloche charming also. So many things you can do with it......holiday stuff would especially look pretty in there.ReplyDelete
Have a peaceful weekend, Susie.
Sheri, I too thought that little windowed box would look cute with seasonal things displayed. I will just relax this weekend. Blessings to you and yours, Love, xoxo, SusieDelete
I would love to have that sweet tea sign and I would love to have the farm desk and the frog statue. I wish I had a nice covered porch. My husband has mentioned building a screened porch- how I hopeReplyDelete
Hi Carol, So glad you stopped by. I would dearly love a screened in porch...all the joy of a front porch without the pesty bugs. Wishing you a great Sunday . Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
