Last weekend I had was able to attend a fabulous barn sale!!!
it was unlike any other barn sale i had been to.
Thats because it was Anne Maries barn sale from NaDa Farm.
It was beautiful. The merchandise the pastries the atmosphere .
Here is my cute sister again.
She is as cute and sweet as she looks in this picture.
I found these cloches while I was there . They were the perfect size I needed.
It is a magical place!
Then we headed over to another sale.
In a cute little apartment full of vintage finds.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. My surgery went fine and my recovery is going well.
I am now just waiting on test results. This is way harder than the recovery part!!
Normally after a surgery like mine they would find out test results in a day, but mine is complicated so they had to send it off to another lab for further testing.
So this is a time in life where I can choose to trust God or be fearful. And let me tell you how thankful I am to know that God is truly in control, no matter what this turns out to be . Am I scared yes, but I know he will carry me though whatever the out come is.
I read something Amy Carmichael wrote, she wrote" You can refuse the spirit of fear, which never comes to us from God. Instead open your heart wide to the spirit of " power and love and calm and well balanced mind and discipline and self control" (2 Timothy1:7 amplified)Because fear is so infectious , let us, for the sake of others and ourselves refuse it. For "if God is for us , who can be against us?" Romans 8:31"
Now on to lighter things. I found this fabric a couple years ago and fell in love with it.
I made this tablecloth for my round coffee table out of it.
I also covered the back of this shadow box out of it.
But my favorite project made out of this cheerful material was this banner .
I put some cute little birds on a couple of them.
I also wanted to let you know that my sister from I love pretty little things is doing Friday pretties. So if you have any pretties you are wanting to show off go over to her blog and let her know and she will put a link to your blog on Friday.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.

I love this place!!!!
It's a quint little nursery in our town.
So on a sunny afternoon while my mom was here we decided to venture out to this enchanting place.
My mom enjoyed sitting i the sun listening to classical music play around her.
I am also so inspired by the creativity of this place.
It makes me want to go home and place old doors all around my yard:)
I just bought an old wooden ladder at the flea market. I love how they used it in the garden.
Blumen Gardens is located where an old factory used to be. They turned it into a shop area. They also have a reception area that you can rent out that is beautiful. Weddings there are magical out in the garden with twinkle lights everywhere.
So if you are ever in the Chicago land area and you want to visit Blumen gardens they are located at 403 Edwards st in Sycamore IL.
I will be taking a little break from blogging. I am having surgery tomorrow. I hope not to be down to long, but i figure one thing that i can do during recovery is sit on my computer and blog.
