Still May Day

me again im too much of a dum dum to figure out how to keep typing after I post a pic so I have to create another post . I wanted to show you the darling picture I found at the estate sale. I will post it at the end of the post (because of the pic)..
I just made parmesan chicken and pasta for dinner , with apple crisp and vanilla bean yogurt for dessert. yummy if I do say so myself..  You cant beat the internet for great recipies.. delish..
I decided not to put my stuff in the shop downtown, because I went there twice yesterday and no - one was around, and I went back today the day it was supposed to open, and there was nothing going on.. glad I decided not to.. hey I think I just figured out how to post and keep typing!!!! heres a close up of her sweet little face. isn't she precious? I love her.. shes looking at the bird on a tree branch. I don't know when or who painted her, but love her.. Guess that's all for today. would love it if you left me a comment so I can know if anyone is reading me! thanks cheryl

May Day

Im not sure how many of you have ever heard of May Day, but its a big deal here in Maine or I should say it used to be. On the first day of may you hang a maybasket filled with goodies on a loved ones door. very very sweet, well of course my mother still does this! She makes over one hundred every year. She folds tissue paper and fills with candy. she was out today delivering them. heres one of her may baskets isn't it cute? picture coming home and finding this hanging on your door. a very sweet tradition for sure.. Let me know how many of you have heard of may day.

Check It Out

My husband and I hit a fab estate sale the other day. Its always a thrill here in northern maine when the yard sale season starts.. You can see a few of the treasures by clicking on to the link at the beginning of the post. I loooovvvvee the little vintage lipstick caddy. Im not even sure that's what it is called, its darling it looks like a crown with a mirrored bottom and lipstick holders, still sure I want to say goodbye to it. And I put two troll dolls up for adoption to a good home.Love the homer laughlin gravy boat, the cute bird glasses  , and how about the JUST A SWALLOW shot glasses?? so freaking cute..
I have tomorrow off, not sure what I will do. I do know that I have to get all my goods organized (probably never happen). If the weather would warm up, I could get into the garage and categorize some stuff.. but still a bit chilly.
Lets see what else must I do heres a short list wonder if I can get it all done on my day off, list follows

loose 20 pounds
totally clean house
make some fabulous necklaces from old jewelry and keys
knit at least 20 pair of slipper socks
read a good book (just read a good one called Gap Creek) if I thought I had it rough I felt privaledged after reading that book
sort and price some stuff to take to the flea market (I have to drive 5 hours to NH)
bring some stuff to a local shop to sell
attend my Tuesday night bible study

I guess that's enough for tomorrow... hahaha ok so I eggzagerated a bit, but do hope to accomplish a bit! the Bible study for sure.. oh and I will try to get a nice walk in. I really need to start walking everyday to take of some poundage..

I will really try t commit to daily posts.
