Piggy's Story

Cottage Dreaming & Flea Market Wishing comes from the heart and soul of a rescued one eyed Chi Chi named Piggy. All she wanted in life after her life changing injuries was a little cottage to rest in and to shop at flea markets. The dog angels got involved and we found each other. This little Piggy loves to go to the flea market!

Hello Autumn

Hi friends and readers....it has been a while since I have posted.  Summer 2016 has come and gone.  Now we are in Autumn and it is beautiful.  I have been super busy of course.   Below are some pictures...enjoy.

I found the original 1970's era eagle with flag decal that my dad used when he first painted this milk can a long time ago.  

Since I have been getting fit and dieting in 2016 I needed all new smaller clothes.  I found some goodies at the goodwill.

lots of fall casual dresses and such

more from thrifts...exercise jacket, long sleeve tee and cute jeans

how cute is this thrifted jacket?

I was going to shell out around$40 bucks for a Target leather like jacket...but came to my senses and found one at goodwill and a red and green puffy sleeveless jacket as well.

I am taking a real estate class...lots of studying for me.

my doggy will not let me study...he wants to be cuddled at all times :)  of course I will cuddle ya!

Little flowers and rainbows!

Hi there friends and readers :)  Hope that you are well.  I went thrifting when I was out of town this weekend and found some super cute little fake flowers in little pots.  No water necessary!  I quickly put them on my porch to make it look more springy.  Now I just hope the wind doesn't blow them away. :)  I also went shoe shopping and fell madly in love with these rainbow FILA sneakers...be still my rainbow heart!

the goings on.....

Hi friends and readers.... I took some tile today to dust my Pyrex cupboard.  Have visitors Sunday night for dinner so it had to look presentable...ha.  My old fridge went to the big ole fridge in the sky the other day.  I got a new one Friday night. :)  It matches my kitchen a bit better.  Piggy loves her milk especially cold. Later gaters!

in recovery mode.....

Hi all.....hope that you are well.  I have been absent from blogging for a whole month.  So not like me.  In early January I suffered a pinched nerve in mt neck and back and torn muscles in my right arm and shoulder.  Thankfully my chiro has me on the pathway to health.  I only can type with my left hand as the right hand is still having issues with movement and numbness.  But thankfully the horrible muscle spasms are gone.  On good days I get out of the house and go thrifting.  It is difficult to drive but on good days I have to get out and enjoy life.

Here are some pictures of my goodies...enjoy.

white milk glass punch bowl with a dozen cups

got three of these little plates

a silver tea set with tray....still polishing but it will look great
