Time to say Good-bye and Hello

After careful consideration I decided that it was time to move from WordPress to Blogger.  I needed the change and the room to grow.  I must bid you all adieu for I will not be blogging here any longer.  I say Hello because I look forward to seeing you all at my new home, http://lovelylissie.blogspot.com.  It is here that I will continue to grow and express myself.   Hope to see you all very soon!

Lissie Loves. . . . . .

Hey folks! I hope everyone is having a lovely, relaxing weekend! I thought I’d pop in and share a few things I’ve found this week while wandering around the web.

First up are these adorable deer found on SheWalksSoftly and made by Violetpie.

I discovered this darling book jewelry on Reading is Fashionable. Earrings, pins, necklaces, and hair accessories can all be found at BookEarrings.

Have you heard of the Vintagemobile. This old school bus travels around the Dallas area selling vintage clothing. I so want to visit this bus! I found the Vintagemobile on a recently discovered treasure of a blog, Gypsy Dust Vintage. You really should check it out!

Speaking of Gypsy Dust Vintage, it was there that I discovered the lovely illustrations of Inslee.

I am also excited to learn about the collaboration between milliner Albert Swanepoel and Target. Can’t wait for these to hit the shelves!

Ever wondered if you are a 21st Century Romantic?  Take this fun quiz on a bloomsbury life to find out.  While you are there check out the rest of her blog.  I think you’ll like it.

That’s all for now. I have more goodies I can’t wait to share, so see ya later.

Attic Treasures

Hello and welcome to a new, old feature here on Butterfly Dreams. I love sharing the treasures I find at flea markets and thrift stores. Coming up with a different name for each post of this nature is not so much fun. As a result I have decided to introduce a new/old feature called Attic Treasures where I will share photos of my latest treasures. Here you will find all sorts of vintage treasures and will have all the fun of exploring grandma’s attic or in my case grandpa’s garage. My grandpa loved yard sales and auctions. He bought all kinds of stuff and then had his own garage sales. His garage was always full of stuff. It was a grand adventure to dig in all the boxes and see what treasures I could find. I am still treasure hunting today. Most recently, I uncovered this pretty alarm clock.

I just love the colors and it’s perfect on my bedside table.

Over the summer I found several treasures while visiting my mom. One of those was this very pretty, glamourous lipstick holder/mirror. I carry it in my make up bag and feel so elegant and glamourous whenever I use it.

For awhile now I have been searching for a red beaded necklace. I was thrilled to find this one in my favorite booth. It’s perfect.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this maiden voyage of Attic Treasures! There will be more to come! Happy Hunting!!!!

Welcome Home Baby Girl

It has been quite a weekend. It kicked off on Thursday night when my sweet baby girl, Licorice, decided she needed a little adventure. She’s strictly an indoor cat. She decided to explore the outside world a little and sneaked out. Micah spent 2-3 hours outside in the dark searching for an all black kitty. No Luck. We finally locked up, brushed our teeth, and went on to bed. I woke up at 6 o’clock in the morning and found my husband in the bathroom. He got tackled and sidelined by a stomach bug. The doctor who was by the way really kind and reassuring sent us to the hospital for lab work and an ex-ray. It was just a precaution, but scary and unnerving all the same. We finally made it home completely worn out. We both crashed. Then, Micah heard a scratching sound at the door, he peaked out, and there she was! Licorice is home, safe and sound! I could not have been more happy or exited to see her again. Micah is feeling much better and the rest of the weekend has been much more peaceful. All of this just to say Welcome Home Baby Girl!

A little Halloween Goodness

We’ve been working on our Halloween decorations this week and I just couldn’t wait to share a few pictures!

Water, Life, and other Stuff

I think we can all agree that water is precious and it gives life. One can’t truly understand just how precious water is until it’s gone. Texas has endured a drought this summer that has led to wildfires across the state. The loss of homes, land, trees, and life has been unbelievable. In our own small part of the state we’ve seen smoke so thick it looked liked great clouds and have found ourselves longing for running water. Our well has begun to go dry due to a lack of rain. There is a bit of water there, but not enough for laundry, dishes, baths, and all the other things which require water. We’ve been doing our best to conserve for the last few weeks and will continue to do so. We are blessed with good friends who have offered us a place to bathe and wash clothes. We are now using paper plates, bowls, cups, and plastic silverware. So far we are doing fine, but this lack of water has sure thrown our routine out of whack. All kinds of little things have come up. Things I never gave a thought to before are now of the greatest importance. Still we are very blessed. God is indeed very good!

I’ve also been very very busy getting ready to teach bible class, planning Halloween decorations and a small party, doing a little shopping, tackling a crafty project or two, and getting ready for my littlest niece’s 3rd birthday party. I hope to have some pictures for you soon. In the meantime here are a few things I’ve found around web that made me swoon.

These pet beds from Pipsqueak & Petunia are just too cute. They have lovely collars too!

I just love this filigree bat necklace found on She Walks Softly. It’s perfect for Halloween!

I would love to visit this tea parlor found on 79 Ideas! Isn’t it pretty?

And finally, I love this little cottage found on Hello My Dear. It’s so pretty. I love the white walls and the pops of color.

A Little Home Decor DIY

While flipping through my copy of Romantic Country I came across this lovely fall centerpiece idea!

I was inspired and decided to get a little creative. I pulled out all kinds of fall goodies and a couple of pedestal cake stands and made this.
