The next day we headed home and was glad to have had a little break away from the remodelling. Last week though, I had a moment to visit one of our local antique malls. I was on a search for a brooch pin for one of my daughters. Never found it, but found one of those neat corner cabinets that one of my friends, Rebecca from A Gathering Place has just recently redone and I think one of her friends has a pink one too. I love the architectural designing of it and wish I had a corner to put it in. This one had a drawer in the middle (which is different than I'd seen) and was already painted white. I really liked it and it was for sale $350.00 (ouch!) ..Soooo...if anyone is looking for one there is one here in Paso Robles, CA.
Our weather here has just been beautiful! The last few days have been in the upper 70's-80's. I really want to go outside and plant something. April is around the corner and this is birthday/Easter/anniversary time for our family...something about every 5 days during the month. Looking forward to that special family time. With hugs and hope you find that great find you are looking forward....many blessings to you and your families....will post some more soon and put some pictures up!!

I had been looking for a lovely oblong vintage dresser mirror that wasn't overly big. I was very pleased to find this one as they are hard to come by. It was the day though for dresser mirrors, as I saw a few people looking for them. Mine is so pretty with beautiful relief style roses made of gold metal on each end. It will be perfect on dresser with my vintage compact collection (I think I have 4 or 5). The other pieces were priced so reasonable that I couldn't pass them up and in excellent condition. The little guilloche pin with rhinestones around it was displayed by the vendor on this old photograph and thus came with the pin.
The front of the museum at McClellan Air Force Base....
The other airplanes on display with another shot of the airplane in the back right corner Ron flew on....
Hope you enjoyed the weekend with my daughter and I....will write more soon. I feel really blessed in my life and thank God every night before I go to bed.

My hope is to write more and share some pictures of things in my life and things that make me happy. Some of them are buried right now in the storage bins until the carpet gets done and the room set back up. Won't be long.....
