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.

hokey-pokey

hey again,

i shall spare you all the gory details of my lengthy illness. not because i don’t wanna talk about it … what southern gal doesn’t? but because i have SOOO much else to write about and pics to show.

last weekend (see?? it’s taken me THIS long to get the pics uploaded and blog about them … due to my aforementioned lengthy illness) we went FAGGING in stephenville. woohoo!!!! it was a blast, as usual. and oh. my. gosh. did we find some treasures! there were several garage/yard sales, a flea market and, after a couple of failed attempts with jannetta’s new (and might i add, annoying) GPS gadget, we finally found the antique store we were hunting.

not much shaking there, although i did get one little beauty from the place (a sweet vintage lady figurine bust).

where we hit paydirt was at the garage sales and flea market. i found LOTS of vintage items, simply too numerous to mention. pics are below. linens, bowls, plates, cups, shutters (pink and greenish!), a PINK lady sunbeam shaver (w/plug cord and box!), old bottles and a rusty, crusty huge jar filled with matchbooks (?), a VERY old, rusted, crusted-over trash can, a PINK chenille spread (will have to be a cutter, very stained and well, stinky), a way cool book from 1945 titled, “alimony”, a pinkish/copper set of westbend salt and pepper shakers, a vintage pair of ladies’ eyeglasses and buttons and bling and an adorable blue birdie and, and, and … well, i got carried away. wasn’t gonna mention everything.

in case i forgot something, you’ll see it in the pics. the best part of this junking day (aside from being with my beloved FAGs) was that the place i scored the MOST treasures was the exact place i spent the LEAST. grand total of $6.50. toooooooo wonderful!!

grab some sonic ice to chomp (or your favorite snack), sit back and enjoy the show!

lotsa love and hugs … and thanks to all of you who keep praying for this tired old body o’ mine,

terry lee

my-first-cmas

happy new year y’all!

i don’t know how y’all do it … blogging during the holidays. i had to completely give mine up. mind you, i kept READING others’, but that’s a helluva lot different than writing your own. and posting the pics, etc. i love doing it, but it’s mighty time-consuming. so my vintage estate-sale hat is OFF to youse guys. 🙂

for some strange, gawd-awful reason, the christmas song, “we need a little christmas” keeps buzzing through my brain. and i didn’t even watch “mame” this season. nor do i recall ever hearing it on the radio during the holidays.

it might have something to do with the song’s sentiment, more than actually WANTING christmas to last longer. or come back soon. i mean, there’s NO ONE in texas who’s happier to see the holidays go bye-bye than moi.

ANYways, so many things i want to write about. so many pics i want to post! where do i begin?! bigger question: where do i END?!

firstly, i recently found a box of OLD black and white original prints that were from my parents’ house. thank the Lord my mama and daddy loved their camera and USED it. oh.my.gawd. what a wonderful gift they have passed down to us.

pics of me as a baby, my sister and me as little girls, lots of christmases past (talk about true vintage pics and 1960s aluminum cmas trees with pink ball ornaments … lord how i wish i had those treasures now!). i will post a few of the pics now and more in blogs to come.

speaking of the old pics, i made a scrapbook for my sister’s christmas present. she LOVED it. i made a slideshow of it for my own sake … but here’s the link to it, should you find yourself wanting a looksee.
Sister Scrapbook

secondly, hubby and i went to abilene this past weekend for our grandbaby’s first birthday. it was SO much fun spending time with him. he’s getting big fast. pics of him forthcoming as well.

thirdly, on the way home, we stopped in brownwood at one of my favorite antique haunts. it took some conniving on my part since hubby doesn’t like to stop while traveling … but stop we did.

found some super-dilly-icious, yummy retro/vintage treasures there including a little turquoise-cushioned stool thingy from the 50’s or 60s, a gorgeous crusty, rusty white plant holder piece with wheels, beee-autiful little plates/saucers/cups with roses, of course, an old PINK plastic canister set, a pink set of salt/pepper shakers, a great vintage pink AVON bottle … and a few other odds and ends (sorry, my adjectives are constipated this afternoon … the pics will serve as much better descriptions).

the more i think about it, the more i’m thinking that this business of junking/antiquing/finding that perfect vintage treasure is a little like christmas to me. it’s that FEELING of happiness (dare i say euphoria?!) i get when i step into a musty, dusty, crusty antique store and it’s like christmas morning, as a child, all over again.

yes! we DO need a little christmas, right this very minute!

we need a little christmas,
right this very minute …
for I’ve grown a little leaner (not!)
grown a little colder
grown a little sadder,
grown a little older
and I need a little angel
sitting on my shoulder
we need a little christmas now!

for we need a little music,
need a little laughter,
need a little singing
ringing through the rafter
and we need a little snappy,
happy ever after
we need a little christmas now!

lotsa love and hugs to y’all,
terry lee

Hey y’all!

What a crazy week! Has anyone else felt the effects of the full moon? When you work with and around children, you can always tell when it’s a full moon … without looking at the night sky or the calendar.

Thank God the weekend is here. Can’t wait for Sue’s sale and the Crafter’s sidewalk sale!! Woohoo!!!!

Meantime, I wanted to share my most recent project with you guys. A couple of months ago, I bought this darling retro piece, a rocking loveseat at the Sal-Army. I loved the structure and design of this unusual piece … but it needed some TLC. Also, the cushions were this gawd-awful puke-green color but I knew I could ditch them or cover them (I did both).

Last weekend, the planets and stars aligned (I had the strength, time, motivation and creative juices all at one time) and I finally got to work on it. With absolutely no forethought (as Sue says, “I don’t think, I just DO!”), I began with a paint brush and a bucket of “antique white” paint.

Finished up with Goodwill bargain barn-acquired curtains to cover the green seat cushions, valances for the skirt and pink fringe from Sue’s booth. Tossed the back cushions (yuckie yuck) and used two old bed pillows covered in yard sale-found (10 cents!!) pink pillowcases. Tied a couple of bows on each side and lay a lovely throw pillow from Sue as the final touch.

The total make-over, including the actual loveseat itself, was under $20. Put it on my front porch next to a sweet little glass-top, rusty table from Sue’s booth and then hung some adorable little garden chandies over it.

Am very pleased (and surprised!) with the results. Now … on to the pictures!

Love and hugs to all!

Hey Y’all!

If you’re reading this, more than likely you’re familiar with my “VintageSue Fanaticism”. She’s one of the most creative, vibrant souls that I’ve ever met. She can take a piece of garbage (I’m talkin’ trash picked right from the curb) and turn it into something so amazing, so wonderful (yes, so yummy!) that you would be proud to display it in your home.

I call it her “magic”. I don’t know how she does it … but it continues to amaze me and thrill me each time I enter her booth of lovelies. It’s like a spell that washes over me. She calls it “craziness”, but whatever you call it, it is something very special.

Talent and creativity aside, what makes this lady even more special is her sweet, generous spirit. She has a “Pay it Forward” philosophy and I’m willing to bet that it has served her well.

Here then, are pictures of just some of the goodies that Sue has blessed me with … both given to me and some I bought from her. In my opinion, they are ALL gifts. So here’s to you, Sue!

Love and hugs to all!

The weekend is over already?!

Well, at least I was strong enough to get out of the house and actually DO SOME JUNKING/SHOPPING/ANTIQUING!! Woohoo!!!

And I’m driving again (don’t tell my doc, who I THINK told me to wait 6 weeks!) which made it a helluva lot easier to do the whole shopping thing. I appreciate my sweet hubby, who in his defense, did chauffeur me around to the Goodwill, Crafter’s and Sal-Army whenever I felt up to it.

My dear friend Bonnie and I schlepped over to Lampasas … she had found a great little thrift store she wanted to share with me. Of course we couldn’t leave Cove without stopping by Sue’s booth at Crafter’s first. By the end of the day, I was exhausted, but happy with the treasures that I brought home.

I’ll let my pics do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!

Hi again!

Not much happening in my world today. Just had a nice chat with my hubby and now he’s off to watch sports or some other gawd-awful thing on television.

Won’t write much because I have lots of pics I want to post today. As they say, pictures are worth a thousand words … and even more when you add captions! 🙂

As promised, here are some pics of my treasure finds at Sue’s booth on Friday (sorry to make you work so hard, Sue!) … also some other random pics! Enjoy!
