A Wicked-ly good time

Yesterday, I went with my mom and daughter to see the musical Wicked. I tried years ago to get tickets and was not able and this time when they came back I vowed to get tickets no matter what!
I have read the Wicked trilogy, and cried like a baby after the first one because the story touched me so much. So of course, I ended the show by crying again! Are there any other Wicked fans out there? If you are not I urge you to read one of the books or see the musical, you will not be disappointed!

Antique show finds

Sunday was my day to go to the monthly Olde Stark Antique Fair, one of my favorite shows. I managed to find these amazing photos and jewelry pieces A bag of mica flakes and this sweet little church
and one of my best finds ever, a deck of 175 playing cards, all dirty and grungy just like I like them. I think I even let out a squeal when I first saw them!!

A rare occurence

I have 2 cats Riley (he is black) and Maggie (she is gray) that are always at odds with each other. Today there was a moment of peace while they both shared a spot on their favorite cushion. Riley even shared his favorite white mouse with Maggie. Did this peace last, alas it did not, but I enjoyed it for the few minutes it did!

My new friend

Sorry I have been away from blogland for a while, but I caught that nasty flu bug that is going around and it has knocked me for a loop! After a couple of weeks I am now starting to feel almost back to normal (or as close to normal as I will ever

While recuperating I won my very first giveaway ever! Tina at tinybear sent me this adorable little bear named Miss Libbit. I cannot believe my luck that I won this amazingly sweet little bear. She definitely brightened my day and I just want to thank Tina for letting her come and live with me. She is such a talented artist and I am so honored to have a piece of her work in my home. Thank you so very much Tina!! Just look at this sweet face.........
Well, I thought she looked a little lonely so I dressed her up with a little bow pin and set her in a little tart tin and put her next to my favorite dolly so that she will have a friend to talk to! I hear them chatting away all the time!!
