Awards (Thank you!) and My Weekend Loot

Deb at "Deb's Country Kisses" sent me these awards! Thank you so much! They're my first!

I would like to do the same as she has, and pass them along to all of the wonderful women (and two young men) on my list of favorite blogs. Please accept them as recognition of having a blog that says "welcome" to me and brightens my day!

This weekend I visited a favorite antique shop and found some neat postcards. I have a postcard holder in my room, and I think they are such a nice vintage touch. I had a Christmas postcard in there since Christmas, so figured that I should get a few more and change them out. Most of these were birthday cards, and it's not anywhere near my birthday, but I loved the colors and the artwork on each of these cards. My favorite is on the bottom

The flowers were so pretty on this one! I love the pink and the green!

Who can resist a pretty pink rose and lace?

This was my first antique postcard.

I loved the roses on this one, but the photo really doesn't show the colors so well.

And this was my favorite! Such rich color! The best part of all about my lucky find...they gave me 50% off and I got them for a buck a piece! I think I'll be going back to find some more postcards! I'm sure I could think of more fun things to do with them.

First thank you for the awards, I will post them on the side with your name, the E I have but not the other one...are you suppose to post other peoples name as they give you the same award? Not sure of the award etiquette yet...

The Heirloom White is by Rust-Oleum, it has a picture of a antique dresser on the front of the can, very pretty! It is a soft cream color and has a matte finish too it!
Hope your week is going great,
Blessing and hugs!
Donna Lynn

Oh what beautiful cards! I love the last one, too -- so pretty. And what a bargain, too. I'd definitely be going back there. LOL
