and took us to the Vue. Doesn't it have a wonderful view? It is overlooking the Mississippi bridge and river.
bluffs surrounding the river
Bluffs here are covered in abundance with kudzu and it is so lush in the summer. I went close to it because at that time, we had a vine that mysteriously climbed our gazebo and I wanted to make sure it wasn't kudzu or it would take over everything. It wasn't!
That's all for sightseeing right now. Now on to the other memes. I hope you get to visit the sweet ladies hosting these parties cause they always have some awesome things to share.
I won a $100 gift certificate on a drawing in an antique shop. You know the kind where you drop your name or card in a fishbowl? My name was picked and the owner called me at home to notify me. So John and I went shopping last weekend. These are all what we bought. Of course, we spent mre than $100 cause it was too embarrassing to just redeem the exact amount.
John said we can't just buy a $100 worth cause it would be embarasing. Didn't I just say that earlier? So, I spotted this pair of Victorian style lamps. He liked them too so we bought them. They were a little over $100, more than the certificate. I guess it was worth giving away something by the owners to get more, lol.
Look at the pretty details. I am putting the lamps on each side of the fireplace mantel in the living room.
I also bought this set of napkin rings. They have pierced hearts on them and thought they would be perfect for Valentine's Day. They were cheap, I think $3 for the whole set.
The 2 vintage napkins were also $3. I wish they had more.
and this blue glass S & P shakers were $10. And that completes what we got from the antique shop.
I also bought these set of painted wine glasses. I thought they would be perfect for a spring and summer garden tablescaping. They were also $5 for the set.
