Two Thumbs Up Weekend!

On Saturday I took my mom out for her belated birthday. We opted for a popcorn bucket and the movie Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. We gave it two thumbs up! Did you read the book? I tried....twice.... but I couldn't get into it. I should have stuck with it. I loved the movie! A lot of her thoughts and feelings I could 100% relate too! I also thought Julia Roberts did an awesome job! There were a million good, deep, thinking kind of quotes but here are 2 short ones for you to ponder:
"You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slave to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions." "There's a crack (or cracks) in everyone...that's how the light of God gets in"
Saturday night I headed out to meet my girlies for dinner. Sadly, no pictures because my camera was dead. I'm sure LOMA will share later!

On Sunday I hit up the Nashville Flea Market. You know I've got a deep love for that place. I feel completely myself there and get lost in all the antiques. People think I'm crazy, but they have a lot of great items.

I know you read Pottery Barn and oooooooo and ahhhhhh over the perfectly designed rooms. Well, the Flea Market is a great place to get these items too. Like these popular industrial loft coffee tables! Beautiful stain glass

Sugar cube molds, as seen in Pottery Barn too they are just used as candle holders.

Antique jars...in Pottery Barn the green ones start at $99 and I got mine (exact replicas...just needed to be washed) for $2 bucks. I can't find the picture, sorry!

Picked up Sarah's birthday gift. She just blogged about these jars so I got her some. Sorry sister, but the large group picture of mason jars were all lucky 13's! ( For those of you who don't know your glass history, any with the number 13 on the bottom are rare.) They used to break them during war times because they were thought to be bad luck. Now, they are few and far between and range from $25.00 and up for one jar.

A few close ups. I hope you like these, sister!

Last, but not least, I love to see children on animal backpack harnesses to keep them in line. This particular family let the daughter hold the leash of the little brother!

And because I am a crafty mom....when the peanut butter runs out I give it to Zane. Don't adjust your eyes, he IS playing with an empty JIF jar. There is MAYBE a tablespoon left in the jar but he will play with it for 30 mindless minutes. We also like to play chase upstairs on the carpet and he will hide the jar. I heart him on this rainy day!

Another perk? The hubby is downstairs making dinner...steak, baked potato and salad. Yum!


  1. Ohhh..love it, love it, love it!!!!!!

    Thanks sister!! I know, I think those animal backpacks are so funny!! Please slap my face if you ever see little Sally with a monkey on her back :)

  2. I didnt know that about the glass jars! I am going to run and check mine really fast! lucky 13 huh? Now I will be on the hunt! You have some great finds.
    I have a puppy too... love the pb jar idea. I think I will steal it.
