I went to my very first auction Saturday with a friend of mine – Tanza. Wow….so much fun. I got some really good deals, but I also got caught up in the thrill of the sale and ended up with a few boxes of “treasures” that will be a future donation. Next time I will need to be more selective and try to keep my adrenaline in check. It WAS fun though!!
I’ve got an update on the booth I have at Green Expressions. My sister Annette saw my booth and wanted in on the fun. So…the space right next to mine became available and Annette and I took it. My sister and I are so alike in many ways. As we were setting up our space I noticed that I had many of the very same items she was putting out. Here are a few pictures of the updated space to share.
This has been so much fun to do – especially with my sister. I am blessed to able to spend this time with her. Come by and visit Green Expressions – it is full of wonderful vintage treasures. Have a wonderful day!!
Life this past week has been a flurry of activity. Friday I signed the contract to be a vendor at Green Expressions. This little gem is right next to A Place In Time – a flea market/antique mall located between Lone Elm and Sentimental Journey antique malls – on Dennis St. in Olathe. My friend Mary told me about it and when I went to check it out it was perfect. The people there are very nice and I immediately felt comfortable with them. Come to find out my husband Brad had worked with one of the guys there – Lloyd- for many years at Time Warner Cable. I spent Saturday setting up my space and I have even made some sales this past weekend. Now I have alot of junking to do to keep up with the booth.
Sunday and Monday I spent in Iowa with my daughter Kelsea. She is contemplating a move there to be with her husband. Her husband Josh and my son Tyler have recently relocated there with new jobs in the wind energy field, where they do maintenance on those huge wind turbines. I hate to see her go as she has made such wonderful progress this past year, but I do understand her desire to give her marriage another try.
Today I have been busy creating some really fun shabby things for my booth. I took a couple fabric hearts, two fabric and lace albums, a few pin cushions and a couple wooden altered houses. I also put together a wreath -inspired by pinterest!! Imagine that!
Here is one of the little wooden houses that I made. Brad cut a bunch of these little cuties out of 2 x 4’s in different shapes and sizes. More houses to come in the near future.
And here are a couple pictures of my booth at Green Expressions. It’s kinda exciting and fun to have this booth. You’da thunk I would be doing this??
Not me – for sure!! I still have so much more to do and so many things that I want to make. I just need more time in a day. And… I still have to get my website and Etsy up and running.
Speaking of my website….. I have begun to receive some things in the mail. So stay tuned for more info on the really cool items that I’m getting in.
