garden girls

hey y’all!

hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. i celebrated by going to a movie (hangover, which was v. funny. oh, and bradley cooper wasn’t so painful to watch, either) in a cool, dark theater with my sweet, accommodating hubby. but for those of you who braved the extreme temperatures to see the fireworks, etc. … better you than me!

WHO can even junk in this heat?! not moi. i noticed there were only 14 yard sales (compared to 70-something on previous weekends) listed in the classifieds (okay, okay. i know i said i wasn’t gonna look, but i couldn’t help a little peek) for this weekend. doesn’t surprise me. even the most gung ho junker has to hang up her junking bonnet for a while when it gets this hot.

however, i did host a garden party a couple of days ago in honor of the july birthday FAGs , jannetta and bonnie. yes, it was hot as hell, but with the help of a patio table umbrella and a couple of oscillating fans, we managed to enjoy a relaxing and yummy brunch in my new garden area.

in an effort to duplicate a tea room atmosphere and menu, i served various flavored iced teas, chicken salad on a croissant, a baby spinach salad with fresh mushrooms, fresh-off-the-vine cherry tomatoes, black olives, and a banana nut muffin. for dessert, a yummmmmy fruit pizza.

my daughter tara volunteered her services as waitress (thanks again tara!) so that i could sit and relax with the girls. she wore one of my vintage aprons (actually she wore two because she couldn’t decide between them) and did an excellent job of pampering us.

it was a delicious brunch and a special time of making memories. i think the birthday girls had a good time and enjoyed their very own garden party brunch. happy birthday to my dear pals!

enjoy the pics. you can see that my garden is coming along. it’s a work in progress that will be years in the making. but i’m trying to enjoy the journey, despite the july texas heat.

love and hugs,
terry lee

hey y’all!

okay, so it’s taken me a while to get around to posting my recent treasure finds. but here we are.

it’s friday night and let me start with this: SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!!! (okay, you have to imagine me playing an air guitar and screaming, ala alice cooper).

i know, i know. i’m not school nursing right now and my son matt is home-schooled … BUT, my hubby is still serving time in the public schools, and he is VERY happy to see this particular year END. WOOHOO!! i know it was a tough year, babe … but you made it! congrats on the taks scores, in spite of all the challenges! you’re the BEST 4th grade teacher ever!

alright, alright. enough hubby praises. on with the show. instead of blathering on and on, i’ll let my pics do the talking (i just want you to know how painful that is for me. not talking.).

but before we get to the pics …

last weekend i went solo to a few sales in the ‘hood. some a bust, some a blast. this weekend started TODAY with a couple of yard sales in belton … one of which was sue’s friend cindy’s. got some cute things there (thanks for the sweet deals cindy!), pics are below.

and one final note. i recently redid an old cedar chest. well, not sure how old it is, probably about 25 years, which really isn’t that old as far as the vintage world is concerned. but old enough. it was dark, very dark. and the seat was upholstered in colors and a pattern that didn’t suit me.

it sat on my patio for a couple of months before i finally started the project (THIS is why i could never have a booth … i can’t produce fast enough). and then it took me several days to complete the re-make. but i must admit, it looks pretty good. am v. pleased with the results. pics below.

okay, now i’m truly done talking. for now. hope y’all find just what you’re looking for this weekend.

love and hugs,
terry lee

love this little sign ... a gift from jannetta ... so sweet!

love this little sign ... a gift from jannetta ... so sweet!

hey y’all!

rather quiet lately on the junking front. stayed home this past weekend to recover from trade days (see previous blog) and did nothing but rest and enjoy some time with my hubby. admittedly, i was sorely tempted to sneak out to a yard sale or two. i even checked craigslist and the local classifieds a couple of times (okay, maybe more like 6 or 8 times).

but alas and alack, i did NOT junk (a moment of silence).

we addicts (and you know who you are) have a difficult time saying no to a yard sale or estate sale or a good flea market. there’s always the possibility of missing that perfect treasure at a perfect price. a treasure AND a bargain?! v. damn difficult to pass up.

but i needed to rest last weekend. i needed to rest my body, my mind, my soul and of course, my wallet. and i’m glad i did. i rediscovered my patio and the gorgeous spring colors blooming all around me. i watched the birds eating from the new feeders i put out (funny how they fight each other for that birdseed … like it’s steak or something).

i even rediscovered some old junk (and not-so-old junk) that i’ve been meaning to repurpose, re-do, re-create into something lovely, charming and useful. with any luck. more on that in future blogs.

anyways, i took some pics for you … in an attempt to capture the colors and beauty of my potted flowers, newly blooming rose bushes (LOVE my roses!) and other plants around my patio and porch. i hope you enjoy them as much as i do … and that you’ll consider slowing down for just a while.

and smell. the. roses.

love and hugs,
terry lee

hey y’all!

hope this finds everyone all “loved up” after valentine’s day. don’t get me wrong, i believe in love and all, but something about v-day just seems so contrived, materialistic … it’s retail-craziness.

i was in wal-mart the other day (i know, it was against my better judgment … but i pre-medicated myself … thank god for valium and the like … haha!). anyway, i kept passing the dreaded “valentine aisle”. everytime i’d go by, i could feel my heart (the dreaded PVCs for you fellow medical-types) fluttering and my respiratory rate would increase (aka hyperventilation).

let’s be clear about this. it wasn’t because i was excited by the lovely walmart merchandise … it had something to do with the overwhelming commercialism of it all. and possibly all the other last minute shoppers crowding the aisle.

anyway, i managed ONE pass through the aisle. not that i was planning to buy much. i was (blatantly proud) MAKING valentines this year. but how the hell do you make chocolate?!

anyway, by the time i made it to the end of the aisle, i truly was hyperventilating and had broken out in a complete flop sweat. i was drenched. i think i had hives. so much for pre-medication. no amount of valium or ativan could touch my wal-mart-itis. none.

okay, i’ve digressed. here we go. i grabbed some bags of chocolate and made straight for the checkout. but before i did, a fellow disgruntled shopper made a comment to no one in particular. “this is all a bunch of sh*t.”

yikes! what a comment! but i couldn’t have agreed more. i was in a bit of a mood, so i replied, “i know. i agree. i just want to shove all this candy off the shelves and pull down that damn valentine sign.” (the one advertising LOVE/candy/valentine teddy bears and the like, hanging from the ceiling).

i think i scared her off.

but back to handmade valentines. that’s what i wanted to share with you. i did decide to make valentines this year. one for the love of my life, ben (dear, long-suffering, enduring husband o’ mine), one for my precious beautiful daughter tara, and then one for each of the beloved FAGs (if you don’t know who they are, then you haven’t been paying attention! see previous blogs).

i think they all turned out well. i’m not that crafty … i call myself a craft impersonator. but they all seemed to like them (or at least they had the good grace to pretend they did).

i’m also including some pics from a recent trip to burnet. was supposed to be a FAG trip, but only 2/3 of us were able to make it. but on we went. found some really terrific treasures. read captions for more info.

enjoy the show.

stay loved, stay well.

centerpiece

hey again,

so much for keeping my blog fresh. sigh … oh well.

have had such a difficult time shaking this illness. i feel semi-okay one day, the next like death. it’s been exactly FOUR weeks since i started this stuff. enough already, i say!

okay, anyhow, i did manage some junking on friday. matt (my son) and i went to the GW bargain barn in cove. lotsa fun and came home with a few treasures. pics below.

also including a couple of other pictures from around the house. i made a fantastico centerpiece using the infamous roadside white plates and some yummy turquoise-esque beads and feathers. i was pleased with its beauty and uniqueness. my son looked at it as if a space alien had just landed on the table. hmmph. that boy needs some culture.

enjoy the pics and pretend i said something clever here at the end. 🙂

love and hugs,
terry lee

hey y’all!

am finally starting to feel like a human bean again. was yucky sick for over 2 weeks … but y’all don’t wanna hear about that.

missed out on a fantastic FAG trip this weekend. they went to fredricksburg for the trade days (sans their head FAG, moi). just wasn’t feeling up to that much shopping. my spirit was willing … flesh was weak.

however, i did make it out to belton for the city-wide garage sale. kinda crowdy, but worth it! SCORE!! a VERY sweet vintage white wicker sofa and rocker, an old screen door, painted pink and backed with an old white lacy tablecloth (adorable!!), a yum-yum-yummy vintage pink chenille bedspread (all from the same vendor … a kind and gentle couple from evant who gave me a steal-of-a-deal on the lot) … and four little vintage aprons, two pink/pink with roses and two turquoise lovelies from some dude with a middle-eastern accent. whatsup with that?! oh well, only in america.

quick “hubby” story before the pics. a couple of weekends ago, ben and i were on our way home from a restaurant. as we looped around a busy intersection, i noticed a box in the street. it was partially torn open and had what appeared to be plates falling out of it. naturally, i thought we’d turn around and check it out. naturally, i was wrong … because ben was driving. and he stops for nothing. not even for alleged roadside treasures.

was a little miffed, but also a little too sick to argue my case. got home, went to bed, forgot about it.

the next morning, my sweet hubby went to the pharmacy to get my medication. when he came home, he was lugging a heavy, torn-apart box and sporting a “look what i got, mommy!” expression on his face. he plopped it down on my dining table (yikes!) and immediately, i knew what it was … and what he’d done.

how SWEET is that?!! good job, benjamin! i love you for that. for endangering your life (!!) in that busy intersection to get those silly plates because it’d make me happy … for all the times you go out of your way to make me happy. you’re the best.

btw, the plates were obviously headed to the hotel/restaurant at that intersection. they were just plain, white, service-industry 5″ plates … 25 of them that weren’t broken. but i can use them for crafts. and if i can’t, i betcha i know who can (hi sue!).

okay, on to da pics! lots of ’em this time. and in order to expedite this process, not all of them will have captions. so i hope you did your homework and read every word of my blog. haha.

love and hugs to all,
terry lee

hey guys!

by now all the little ghosts and goblins, witches and warlocks, power rangers and princesses have made their way back home after haunting the streets for treats.

i thought when my youngest turned 12 or 13, he’d lose interest in halloween. not. he’s 15 and still likes to dress up, even if he’s just handing out candy to the little guys.

so be it. life’s too short not to be happy … whether it’s dressing up for halloween, reading in bed with your husband or junking with your best friends.

below are pics of some “treats” for y’all … yummy treasures i wanted to share. lots from sue, some from other junking haunts.

love, hugs and HAPPINESS to all,
terry lee
