This 'n That ~ ~ ~

After many weeks, Mo is finally done with all her meds.  With that being said, she is now on the ready to adopt list.  She may find her forever home in a week or it could be many months.  I think once someone gets a look at her beautiful face, her forever home will come sooner rather than later.  Her ears have finally cleared up, but she will probably always have ear issues due to years of untreated ear infections.  This is her serious look . . .

. . . and here she is smiling at the world!

I picked up a few goodies at the antique show in Milan on Sunday.  I haven't bought any treen pieces in a long time, but came home with these two barrel-shaped containers.  I also found a smaller version of the funnel I purchased in PA.

I like to use old figural Christmas bulbs as ornaments on the tree.  They have gotten so expensive, so when I found this cat playing a mandolin (?) reasonably priced, I had to add him to my collection.

I got all three of these tintypes for only $2.00.  On the back of one was a sticker that said "Aunt Pet. and Uncle Jim Young".  I have my doubts about the veracity of that because it was on what appears to be a modern Avery label.  I'm not sure what I will do with them, but instant ancestors can be fun!

{{I did find a few other treasures but can't show them because they are gifts.}}

I am happy to announce that Fritz has reached Petaluma, CA in the RV-12.  Thank you so much for all his birthday wishes.  He told me I had some really wonderful people reading my blog :)  (And I agree 100%!)
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Hi Lauren,
Mo certainly must be happy and feeling better! Just look at that smile! She is certainly going to bring a lot of joy to her future parents!
Glad Fritz made it to CA. He must be having the time of his life!
You always find the neatest stuff while antiquing! I wish you could just come over and shop in my basement! There's a few things down there I think you would like! LOL!

Love that charming face and smile. Glad that the med treatments are finished and Mo is feeling better. It goes to prove what a great pug mom you are.

Congratulations to Fritz for reaching his destination safely.

What interesting wooden containers. I love them and the vintage cat tree ornament.

Have a great week. JB

So glad Mo is back on the "play" list....What a FACE!! I see "cover girl" in HER future!! And love your treasures....I can see we couldn't go junking together because we'd be squabbling over the same items!! I, too, used to collect the little figural bulbs (just to display in bowls, etc.) but they just got crazy nutty in price...And treen...heck - you can't even find a repro at a decent price in these parts...but it still calls to me! I, too, just picked up a few instant relatives...can't resist them!! Have a great day!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Sorry for the deleted comment....must have had my fingers on the wrong keys or something!!)

Love your finds, especially the tintypes. Mo is so cute I just might have to consider fostering a pug if I can find one!! Haven't had any luck finding a greyhound to foster. I think Mo will get adopted quick!!1
