OMG!!!!!!! Country Living Fair 2010

OH! MY! Gosh!!! It was a raining like crazy, thundering and lighting and we were getting ready to go junking.(That is what we usually do on Friday mornings.) We decided to check our email one more time before heading out the door and there it was. "We are pleased to notify you of your acceptance in the Country Living Fair." Yes that's right, we are going to Columbus and Atlanta in September and October. We are so excited!!! This is really a huge opportunity for us and we are thrilled. So, we have got alot of work ahead of us. Keep checking back and we will keep you posted of what we are doing for the show and for our Etsy account. We have some great vintage finds in our Etsy shop.

Vacation Won't Come Soon Enough!!!!

Like everyone else we are concerned about the oil spill in the Gulf. Our families have had a vacation booked for some time now in Destin, Fl., and now we are unsure if we will be able to go. We all love the beach, that includes the sand, the shells, sunsets and all of the activities that go along with it. More than anything we are concerned for the wildlife and local communities that have been affected by this tragedy. So for now we are dreaming about the beach, remembering all of our good times and hoping for the ones to come. Praying for everyone and everything involved.

Today we restyled our booth at the I-24 Antique Mall. Started out by painting our galvanized metal siding. Wow what a difference a little paint makes!!! It sure lightened it up. Then while we were adding some new finds to our booth, we decided to add some seashells for a beachy touch. We use shells year round in our homes to remind us of good times and beach vacations we have had with our familes. Who can help but to pickup a shell when you see one. (even if you already have a bag or two already full) They are all so different, truly a gift from God.

Well we hope everyone is having a good summer and if a beach vacation is in the future we hope it is a good one!
