Catching up

We went to the Farmer's Market this weekend and while it's still a little early, we managed to find a few goodies. Honestly, even if we hadn't bought anything we had a great time just wandering around. They had everything from fruits, vegetables, and plants to boiled peanuts and live chickens. (I'm not sure if the chickens were for laying or frying, but I'm going to go with eggs!)
This is one of the things we bought at the antique/junque shops on Friday. I've wanted a small bench for a while now to put on my small front porch, for sitting, yes, but also for setting packages while I unlock the front door. On the way home we stopped and bought a can of black spray paint as I'm not real fond of the green!

We also bought two chairs for the back deck. I don't have pictures of them as Murph took them straight to the garage and has already started working on them.
Kathy of Kat Collects is my partner in the Vintage Easter Basket swap. I've been spending a lot of time on her blog and have fallen in love with all of her bunnies. Not surprising that I had to have a few of my own!
I LOVE this little egg! It's so very sweet!
These little bunnies are salt and pepper shakers and just too cute!

I bought a couple of other things for swap packages and Easter baskets that I'll share later. I'll share the other chairs, too, as soon as they are finished.

Gracie is at the vet today, being spayed and microchipped. We took her bright and early this morning. She was not nervous at all, as a matter of fact she was so happy to see the other dogs and ready to play! The house is so quiet without her, I'll be glad when she is home. Brutus must agree with me as he's looked high and low for his buddy all day. Stella is just enjoying the quiet!

ETA: Gracie is home now - she was happy to see us, but happier to see the front door! She slept all the way home. I carried her in and put her in her kennel where she's been sleeping for the last hour and a half. Other than sleepy, she's fine. Brutus is happy to have her home, he can finally relax!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

Awww I hope puppy has a speedy recovery! I always feel so bad leaving them for their surgery.

Your bunnies are very sweet! I will have to pop in to your partner's blog!

The bench is great! I cannot wait until the flea markets open here!

Have a wonderful day! Enjoy those fresh fruits and vegetables!

Awwww, Gracie! (( )) Maybe she'll be less inclined to run away now that she's been gone from home twice and neither time was particularly fun!

Love your bench; it'll look great painted black.

Awwww I am glad Gracie is safely home. I am loving your bunnies, they have such a special charm : ) I can't wait for all the produce stands and fresh markets to open up. I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Great little bunny and egg -- I saw a similar egg at Williams Sonoma and was sooo tempted to get a bunch to fill a basket, but then figured I'd be "good" and save my money :)
I just love your new bench. Perfect addition for your lovely porch.
