Attention ALL Shoppers!

Tommorow I will be selling at The Groves Antique Market at Irvine Valley College! Pam, "The Sewing Queen" and I will be there together, please come by and see us! We'll be located in Lot 1, Row 5, Space 4 - just look for the shabby chic canopy's! This morning I went out to a couple of estate sales and a yard sale! I bought a cement bird bath that I'm keeping for my garden. But the others items I'm taking with me tomorrow; cute child's chair, little stool, shopping cart, a couple of metal baskets, an old coke crate and two cute cubie/shelves.

These are the vintage typewriter key necklaces that I made, they are also coming with me tomorrow. They sell for $12. each.

I'll also have some wonderful epherma including vintage French postcards! Please come see us - it should be a wonderful day for shopping!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! The weather here is gorgous - here is a glimpse of my front porch - the little violas in the bike basket make me so happy.


The Challenge

Check out Georgie's blog for the Love Challenge! I'm about a day behind but I love this...really gets you thinking and helps you to connect with your spouse or significant other. Today's post...Day 5-Love Is Not RudeHe who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be reckoned a curse to him. --Proverbs 27:14
Dare:Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only. I think I will do this tomorrow.


A Treasure in the Market

This sweet apron is for sale! Simply leave me a comment and I'll shoot you off a paypal invoice for $24.00 including free shipping anywhere in the USA! It's not vintage or hand-made but is simply adorable.

Estate Sale Finds

There were not many sales on Saturday morning but I did poke around at one estate sale. Not much that I found interesting but I did pick up these three pieces.

The pin with the green stone is a Trifari and the rhinestone bracelet is not market but all stones are intact and it's just very sweet. The floral piece was very unusual and I'm still researching it; it does not have a pin on the back so i think it must be a pendant that you string on a cord. My dear friend, Leanne from Dazzling Melange in TX who is the jewelry expert has been sent photos so we'll see what she thinks about it! Stay tuned for her response!

It's pouring rain here today in So. Cal - we need the rain but I'm looking forward to the sunshine again!


Happy Valentine's Day!

This is the flag I'm flying today! Isn't it sweet? I may leave it up a least until St. Patrick's day possibly. Hug your sweethearts today and have a lovely Valentine's Day!


And the WINNER is....

These gorgeous flowers were sent to me by a friend earlier this week and I enjoyed them every day in my office! The photo does not do them justice....oodles of roses and hydrangeas flowing out of a weathered wooden box. Have a wonderful evening! Erin


Peddlers Market

Saturday turned out to be a pretty good day considering the crazy weather we had; it rained, it stopped, it rained it stopped, etc! I set up a quick booth at the Peddlers Market and had a wonderful day selling and I met some wonderful ladies too. One woman came into my booth and I was such a dork "I know you" I said. It was Priscilla from Sweet Remembrance! She is so sweet and so is her hubby Don who took a few photos for us. I'm hoping that she and I will re-connect at one of the classes that Whimzy is hosting - we both want to learn how to sodder! She takes care of her adorable grandaughter and managers to blog and sell fabulous merch too! I love the green coat she has on her blog.
My booth was pretty empty by the time it was time to call it a day. I kept my purchases to a minimum only buying a couple of cute egg baskets. Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into my give away!
