Prior Lives Party 6!!!

Yea! It is time to party again!!!

I really love visiting all of you guys' blogs. Y'all are all so creative!!!


I don't enter a lot of parties, 'cause I'm lazy, but when I saw Donna, of Funky Junk Interiors,  doing one on old chairs, I couldn't resist entering Moma's chairs, and I was so flattered to see she featured them on her side bar! If you haven't been to her blog, better do it. She is full of ideas and just comes across as such a sweet, generous lady, with all of her tips.

Speaking of parties, my daughter threw me  a big surprise party, today, for my 50th, coming up on Thursday, so I 've been busy and will have to find some Prior's, in my files. Sorry, if they might be repeats, for some of my old time bloggy buds. 





I like where I've seen people using these, in different ways, around their houses...


Cool display in a shop on our cousin trip.





Some chippy ladders, sister Beverly and I bought, at a great little town, called Leona's, for five dollars each.    

I want my ladder to look like this one...almost as cool as Moma's stairs.





I took this picture over in Murchison, at an antique mall. My brother had this horse, Thunderbolt? belonging to cowboy, Johnny West. That is his sidekick, Geronimo.
I played with them, along with my Barbies. I wish I had bought them for him.  Kids didn't have as many toys back then and these were really something.  I remember Moma decorating the table for his birthday, once, using them as centerpieces and napkin holders.  She was always making things special, in her special way.

Now, it's your turn! Link up something you are using in a new way, than its original or PRIOR use, or just an item that has an old story to tell of a prior life,   I don't care if it is an old or new post, just join in and please go look around, too. If you don't you are missing out seeing some great stuff!!!!

Happy Birthday on Thursday! Mines on Tuesday- #48.
I have several of these old ladders under the house. Had one last year, but my son tried to use it and broke it.
I'm looking around here for something to post-
