My "Almost Birthday" Stuff

Hi all, I hope you all had a great Easter!  We just hung out around the house and grilled some elusive steaks!!  Yummoo.  Well, its getting close to my birthday, so I asked for my birthday money a little early so I could visit my favorite junk store.Mr. Bills,..If you want it, he's got it.  I also had a visit with TJ Maxx....Here is what I got from there.......I have never paid 30.00 for a pillow before.......but, well here it is!
I also have been wanting a bus roll or some type of subway art.  I found this at the Maxx too.  It works for me!!

I found this vintage chocolate banner already framed at Mr. Bills and hung it in my kitchen.
Loving those colors and chocolate...of course!!
Also got some great old vintage rulers and put them in my jar..

Look at this really old print I found!  Loving the colors and landscape.  The smaller one is my Granny when she was very young.
A overall shot of the cabinet and the junk therein.

This old heater use to have those brick like thingies across the back.  It was in my Grandmothers house for years..I dug it out of a junk pile at my Dad's. I added my mercury glass I found at Goodwill. 
I found a few other goodies and finally some Lavender!  I'll show that after I plant it!!
Take care Ladies!!  Be back soon!!
