just thinking...



I hope some of you are experiencing the beautiful crisp cool air we have been having in Minn. the last couple days...I love it! I feel rejuvenated when the weather shifts like this! can you tell I dislike hot humid weather? Addi and I have been swinging a lot lately out on the big wooden swing in the back yard. I have been thinking about what I am going to do after she isn't staying with me any longer...I miss my antique dealer days, I mostly miss doing the displays (picture of last Christmas above). I need to use my creative energy again, but probably not in this form. I really got tired of constantly trying to find merchandise at estates sales and the heavy competition of the other dealers at these sales...I am sure if you go to estate sales you see it happening...it gets ugly! I have seen behavior in the last few years that saddens me. It made me lose my mojo! I need to reinvent myself...

Ahhh yes, isn't it nice to turn off the air and use the screens? It's been an absolutely wonderful Thursday morning in western Mn. Much better than the 90's we had in June, yuk.
I missed Buffalo Days in July due to the festivities of the 4th. Some friends and I hope to partake in the August sale before it's back to school in September.

I did enjoy that cooler weather - I admit that fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, one of which is that crisp, cool, clean air. Also, that gorgeous display must be from the Buffalo Nickel. I love it!!! It makes me excited for my big antiquing trip I'll be doing there in September. I find that visiting other people's blogs inspires me to move things around a bit and create some new displays. It's easy to get bogged down in normal life and not engage in the creative endeavors. Good luck Gail. I love that display that you did - so very comforting and cozy.

It can be recharged very easily in a very short time at home. Casio camera batteries are the long-lasting and powerful batteries. * Finally, this industry is ripe with new investment opportunities. 1, save the battery when the battery is 40% -60%, and not to full power saving, low power and do not save.
