{Good Times With Family}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family surely enjoyed our day with extended family. We always have MORE than you could imagine to eat and such a great time together.  Granddaughter Mallory turned 14 on Nov. 23rd so we celebrated her a few days before Thanksgiving with cake and ice cream. She had a great birthday. She went to see The Christmas Carol at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre and loved it.   We snapped a few pictures on Thanksgiving day and as always, I am so proud of my family.  I did take a little time for "tea time" and whipped up a pineapple, mango, and cinnamon spice loaded tea. YUM! We loaded up Thanksgiving afternoon and went with the guys to our hunting grounds and done a little hunting, eating out and shopping. My oldest daughter didn't go as my grandson had a football game. Which, she doesn't hunt either but hates being left out so.... She cloned herself in our picture. LOL! Aren't these shoes the cutest? I found these at TJ Maxx

Weekend Trip with a BIG YARD SALE!

We spent this past weekend just goofing on and doing what we wanted to do...every now and then one needs to do just that right? Especially when the trip involved a yard sale at a local fairground in Jesup, Ga. with lots of goodies....

 When I first saw this yard sale advertised it was the first of April so I decided that the yard sale in Jesup, Ga would be on my list of things to do.
We headed out pretty early and stopped at this little country restaurant for breakfast. I have to throw some dibs in there for them....GREAT FOOD AT A GREAT PRICE. If you are ever traveling through Nahunta, Ga be sure to stop.
 Good breakfast and several cups of coffee and here we go....

 Of course the first thing I spied was this cutie. Needless to say it wasn't for sale as it was used to display necklaces. However the young lady told me that she had more people wanting to buy her shabby chick candelabra that she had painted and attached pillar candles too than her necklaces! 
 (I see one of these little DIY cuties in the makings for me)

And as with any yard sale one man's junk is another man's treasure...or should I say woman!

 And I think the clothes sold right off this feller...Hee-hee!

 I think I spent more time looking at how things was displayed....isn't this the cutest? All clear dishes was used to display some necklaces.

 We shopped at the Big Yard Sale for a few hours and then I spotted another little stop to make.

I did find me some goodies on my trip. (of course you didn't think that I wouldn't now did you?) 
 First purchase was these blue and white dishes. I have blue and white dishes that belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so these will go nicely with my collection.

 I already have my sugar, creamer and sweetener set up and ready. 
(don't ya just love the little creamer?) 
 Another blue and white piece.

Aren't these adorable?
This was so pretty to me.
 The detail etched on the glass was really pretty.
 Awe...yes! This sweetie came home with me too. I've already had a cup of coffee in it and a hot cup of tea!

A few pieces of jewelry came home with me as well.Several of these pieces will be used to make something mind is churning and that can be dangerous!
This cute little beach sign will be used when I do my Beach Tablescape this summer. Right now I am just letting it be a reminder that our family beach trip for a week will be coming up in August! YAY!
Found these two cute little boxes. I've already got for ideas for both. I see some chalk paint going on soon....

Yep...loved my loot.

We had a full weekend no doubt with shopping, eating out and just enjoying some time away.  We visited St. Simon's Island, Little St. Simon Island and went to beach at Jekyll Island.
 It doesn't look like it in this picture but from a distance this bridge looked like a sail boat.
 Beautiful scenery.

Another great place to eat especially if you are wanting fresh sea food is Captain's Joe's.

Not sure what I was more impressed with...the food or the price! Not often you come across a seafood platter for two which ours consisted of salmon, flounder, calamari, oysters, shrimp, hush puppies and baked potato. Included in the price was a soup and salad bar that was all you could eat and tea plentiful for $42! AND we had so much left over that we carried it home to make another meal! The service was excellent and that is major plus in my book!

I hope that you have enjoyed my little weekend getaway with me. It was so much fun.

Joining Jann today for her "Share your cup Thursday". Be sure to pop over to see Jann.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy


  1. What fun!! Love all your treasures and I know you enjoyed time with Mr. Marty. Yes, we all need some time away.

    1. It was lots of fun Deb. I am already looking at another getaway! LOL!

  2. Cindy,
    You had a wonderful time didn't you!! I would so enjoy an outing like this and oh the food, haven't had a really good fried oyster or shrimp dinner in a very long time. I had an Aunt who lived in Moorehead City in North Carolina, it was years ago and I remember enjoying some of the best hush puppies ever along the Atlantic coast! You certainly found a treasure trove of beauties!
    Warm Hugs,

    1. We did have a great time and the seafood was the best I've had in a long time. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. HI, Cindy, and thanks for stopping by my page today...I see we both share a love for blue well as the Lord! The weekend looked fun and just what we do need every now and then! Enjoy your purchases.

    1. YES indeed on the Lord and I do love me some blue and white!

  4. I knew you'd come back with some dishes. So glad you got some blue and white to match your other keepsake items. You are making me hungry with the seafood!

  6. Sure looks like y'all had a lot of fun and some good food too! Love all the treasures you brought home, quite a haul !!

  7. Hi Cindy, Looks like such a fun day treasure hunting and you certainly found some great pretties. Love the little creamer too and the blue and white is darling. Can't wait to see what you create with the wood pieces. Love restaurants like these too.
    Have a nice weekend.
    Blessings, CM

  8. Cindy, thanks for stopping by my blog. I loved this post and the goodies you bought! I feel almost like I went on the trip with you!


  9. Hi Cindy! Oh, if I lived close by, I would have popped in the backseat and gone with y'all! What a fun sale and you really found some great things too. Oh, the blue and white dishes - Currier and Ives - I have a slew and I mean a slew of these dishes. They make me happy! I know you're having fun with your finds. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. I love those dishes too Sheila. Thanks for stopping by to see me!

  10. That looks like so much fun and you did score a lot of great loot! Love all the blue and white pieces you found and those rustic wood boxes!

  11. What a fun way to spend the weekend! You and I have something in common...a love for blue and white. :) Loved all your purchases...especially like the bowl and the tea cup in the blue and white. :)

    I will be looking forward to seeing what you do with the two wooden boxes! I have an idea, but I'll wait to see if I am right. :)

    Your stop at Captain Joe's reminds me of a place that our son took us when he lived in NC between Lake Norman and Charlotte. I've NEVER had hush puppies that good since! :)

    Have a great weekend, my sweet friend.

  12. My kind of junkin' fun! Looks like you had a wonderful day full of good food and some great treasure hunting.

  13. You really did have a great day and find a lot of treasures. Every gal needs a day like that once in a while.

  14. Lots of great buys Cindy and I can't wait to see you work your special brand of genius on those little boxes :)

    1. Now Josie to have the time to work on my boxes! LOL!

  15. Great finds! I'm still thinking about those hush puppies! Haven't had one since I was little, when we lived in Florida!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by. We sure enjoyed the seafood for sure!

  16. Cindy, what wonderful finds, you are the master of treasure finding! What a fun time out and about treasure hunting and stopping to eat and a seafood place, perfect in my mind!

  17. Cindy, what a fun weekend you had. Love all of the treasures you brought home! The blue and white dishes are especially gorgeous. Both restaurants sound like great places. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  18. What fun! You found some real treasures. I have a good friend who lives in Brunswick - I could have visited her and started the yard sale there, then worked my way down to where you were! She used to live on St. Simons Island and I spent a week there with her with a visit to Jekyll Island. Your photos brought back happy memories. Sometime I hope my sweetheart and I can visit your part of the world. We will let you know when that is planned - maybe there will be a big yard sale again!

So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago. It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right? So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me. So now to see if it would fit and it did. I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!  Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white. Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look. The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top... And this.... Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top.... Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor. Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard

{A Few of my Favorite Things}

  I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend.  The weekends just seem to go by too quickly don't they? I wanted to share a few of my favorite things today that sits on my corner hutch in my kitchen. Most of all my blue and white dishes belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so they hold special memories for me to say the least. I have a few that I have picked up here or there or that was gifted to me. Since I enjoy displaying my favorite blue and white dishes, most often I add seasonal or holiday decor to them and I also enjoy the little pops of color added to the blue and white.  Since the bottom of my corner shelf has a cabinet I was able to store a few of my dishes there. But, I have more lovely blue and white dishes stored in my She-Shed. I guess I need to have a blue and white party one day.     Though I have lots of dishes I do have some favorite's, how about you? Do you have favorite dishes?   Recently it was "National Daughter's Day" . So I ju

We had a girls day out this past Friday and I enjoyed our outing so much. Cracker Barrel was first on the list and then shopping. Nothing like a girls day with your girls. Sure does refresh the soul doesn't it? I have had this little sign for a few years now and found it at Tractor Supply . I just love it but let me tell y'all can find all kinds of goodies at Tractor Supply. I went in recently to look for some seeds and well, let's just say I came out with more than I went in for!  Now for Pinterest Favs and these Yummy Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies are first on the list!   This recipe is tried and true.  YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE !
