Beckoning Unnoticed

I have spent most of the morning putting away the treasures that I found yesterday. Finding just the right spot, some (the picture frames) will have to wait as I have plans them. I love the treasure hunt so much, finding the perfect piece to complete a space. But I think I love finding the right place for it in my home just as much. It may take me a couple of times to find exactly where it belongs and will live for awhile in my home, but I always know when I have found it as I feel the smile come across my face and my heart says perfect!! Well, while I was enjoying the moment, my son Tyler came in to tell me he removed a post from the middle of our yard (previous family put it there, we never could figure out why) and could I come out and see his handiwork. He was pretty proud as over 3 feet of it was packed pretty good in the dirt. When I stepped outside I couldn't believe what greeted me.........Just look at that beautiful blue sky!!! And the temperature is perfect!!! 77 degrees.
I thought to myself, look at this beautiful day and I have been inside completely unaware of the gorgeousness (new word LOL) puttering around when I could be out here enjoying it. I didn't know what to do see, when I lived in Cali I would have already been working in my yard, had my potted plants on the patio, maybe some new annuals coloring my landscape. But here in Idaho, I'm still adjusting to the weather. So my yard is, to say the least, a little on the shabby side (not the good Shabby LOL). Ty started up the mower and I went to work on weeding the flower beds. I love a beautiful yard and this one will be a challenge as it has been neglected for awhile. Just getting it mowed and trimmed, and the beds weeded will be an improvement! I hope to have a new camera soon, so I can share some pictures of all I have been doing around our home. I have a lot to show :) Hope you are having beautiful weather and enjoying your weekend.
Until Later


  1. Beautiful sky and the 77 degrees is a perfect temp. If you took the picture of the sky, it will work on the yard and home also, so start clicking away. :-) I just use a Kodak Easy Share and hope to get something better some day, but not now. A little on the cool side here today, but at least it was not raining and the sun was shining all day.

  2. Hi Toni,
    Looks like you found a few treasure's at the longest yard sale. I have read about a few of them and sounds GREAT!! I would have to take out a loan I'm thinking if I went to one!!!
    Nice finds.
    It was a wonderful, sunny and nice day here. I did plant some flowers and do a little weeding plus go back to an estate sale for 1/2 off on the stuff!

  3. I just love those days when it's like that outside, the blue looks almost unreal...


  4. Thanks for stopping by and seeing my treasures... I was looking around this morning and thought most of my favorite things are the decorative items I have found at garage sales.

    Time to me to go out and plant some morning glory seeds. . . will be visiting more in the future...

  5. Thanks for stopping by and signing on as a "reader". Hope I don't get to boring. :-) I thought I had already joined yours but found that I had not, so took care of that real fast. I enjoy visiting yur blog. Have a great week.

  6. Such a pretty view! So glad you stopped by to see me. I love your blog!

  7. Hi Toni, I know just what you mean about your treasures. I don't know what I like more - finding a special place for them or finding them for a special place. :)

    Thanks for dropping by my place.

  8. Toni,
    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'll bet your yard will be in tip top shape in no time! We've finally finished ours, and are now enjoying the fruit of our labors. Flowers are blooming, and it's finally warming up enough to eat out on the patio.
    Cheers, Susan

  9. Wow, I love the jars and family blocks that you found Sat! What beautiful items and a great deal!

  10. Hi Toni, how gorgeous is that blue sky, I'm looking forward to seeing all you've been doing in your garden. Oh and I love all your finds from the thrift stores. You know, I thought I may just try and paint some roses one of these days, you got to start somewhere and like they say practice make perfect..I can only try, how about you??Will you give painting a try as well?? Anyway lovely Have a Super weekend :)
