What to do...

Since I am taking a hiatus from the antique business, my husband would like me to sell off the remaining objects of junk in our little one stall garage...but what to do with it??? actually use it as a garage? (it has never been one)or set up my old wicker couch and chair and use it as extra sitting area in the summers? or insulate it and use it as a studio year round...I have been thinking about making a room in my basement into a craft room, which would be nice but it gets a little chilly down there in the winter months. Any suggestions?

Before and After

These are my before and after pictures of my booth at a antique show that I did called A gathering of friends. It was so much fun creating this booth! Spring is my favorite time to set up for a show...This sale is held in a ski chalet. So it is quite a challenge!

a view from my monitor...

I glanced up from my monitor this morning and saw this out my window...Good way to start off a Thursday. A minute later, it was gone...Thursday's are the best...especially when Gray's Anatomy is not a repeat! Have a great day....

Skis for sale?

I hope everyone is having a laid back Sunday like I am...just sitting at my computer with my feet up reading blogs (of course in my sweats). I was taking a picture of myself and my husband walks in and says what are you doing? I told him I was taking a picture for my blog...he says skis for sale? oh so funny. I know my feet are giganormus (size 91/2) but there is no need for that! anyhow, it is so nice to have a day to do nothing...they don't come along that often.

Saturday morning bloggin

OOps. I was planning on taking a picture of my pretty vase filled with Cadberry eggs, can you tell they are my favorite! I got up this morning to take a picture and they were almost gone! I think my husband likes them too. But as usual he will blame it on the cat. I had to post a picture of the cutest little jacket that my little niece and I found for her at Old Navy and it was on clearance.. No eating this jar of eggs, they are fake.

well, here is my first attempt at making this bag. I used remenants of vintage fabric that I had in my stash...It is from tiny happy! she posted the pattern on her blog...(thank you). In the middle of making this tote my machine (the one I have had since I was sixteen) broke down. So, I broke down and bought a new one...glad I did!
