Flowers, shiny jackets and a kitty

You just won't believe this..
I was in my Goodwill store minding my own business
and SHAZAM!! 
A dear friend at church had a 50th wedding
anniversary recently and I missed the open house. 
I wanted to make her a name frame but I've been
too busy to make it happen. 
I found this pitcher at Goodwill for like $3
with her last name on it.
Does that happen?
Girlies...I was afraid she had tossed
it out and she was gonna be
shocked that I drug it back to her. :)
I was so excited and she was too that
I forgot to get a pic of her receiving it.
 It left my cottage and went right to her front entry
console in her cottage.
Did you spot the 3 glittery egg picks?

I did get a pic or 2 of some shiny jackets recently..
My guy has the red shoe laces.  Hubby in tan hat too.
Clear Lake Boys Basketball Championship jackets!
You better believe the boys wore them to school .
Victory is SWEET.
They won the tournament too and
Jake made all-stars.

And a shot of a naughty, brazen kitty..
Yes...that would be Jack Beagle's bed.
Someone's been sleeping in my bed and they are still there!! lol

xox, DeniseMarie

  3. Perfect vase, and the eggs are neat popping up. How nice the boys won and their new jackets are great, that'll get the girls looking!
    What a naughty kitty.

  4. Okay, now that was meant to be! But I did chuckle when you mused if maybe she was the one who donated it??? That would have been too funny!

  5. How cool is that! What a great pitcher and it looks so lovely with the flowers. Wonderful find!

    Kitty looks very comfy on that bed! It doesn't look like he's too scared of what might happen to him when the dog finds out!

  31. Hi Denise Marie,
    That is so funny, I was just thinking the same thing about the pitcher. Glad it turned out to be the perfect gift! Those shiny coats -the boys sure look proud of themselves, and they should be. Your son is a cutie!
    That cat, well mine do the same thing. They think they rule the world. Miss Maggie tries her best to boss them around with her barking and chasing, but they always win in the end!
    Thanks for linking up, hope you'll be back, and that some of your blogging friends might want to join us next time!

Be blessed! You make my life more full of JOY!
