Display Case #10!

Guess what?!  I've rented a very large book case for display/selling at my antique mall!  These are some of the cute price tags I made for it!

I've planned on having a booth for years but have finally had to let that plan go because of my back challenges.

I want my case to be cute and pretty but will also want to fit as much on it as possible. It will be a fun challenge for me!  I load everything on my shelves May 1rst.
Wish me luck!

Treasure Hunting Day!

Last Saturday, I  was (finally) bitten by the treasure hunting bug again.  (I go through phases.)
I drove 2 towns over to the WSU mom's weekend sale...  (A big adventure for me!)

I found lots of smalls and this recipe box was my fav.
 It's just like the one my mom had.
I've been waiting for years to find one locally.

This round canister from the 50s is so unique!  
After the moms sale, I hit lots of other shops there and here at home!  I was on a roll!

It was raining so I sat in my van at a park and had a little picnic.

These cups are now in my forest chic bedroom holding jewelry and junk.

Finally found some red Lustoware canisters.
The lettering has seen better days!

When I first saw this cherry fabric I thought it was a tablecloth but it turned out to be just enough fabric to drape over my large living room window!  (Only 5 bucks!)

Yup, I know it's not even- yet.  

It was a fun day of treasure hunting and now I'm broke so I better get back to crafting!  Ha-ha!
Thanks for coming by!

Candy Land!

Bobby found a vintage Candy Land game at the the thrifts!
Well- almost.
It's a reproduction but I don't care!
It's been well played so it seems vintage.
This is the board I remember from my childhood and I've wanted one for years.
The ice cream floats was always my favorite section.

I plan on hanging the board on my craft room wall and scanning and copying the game cards for crafting.

Hope you're all doing well!
Idaho didn't really have a winter.
It's like the whole west coast has a dome over it!
I'm sorry for those of you who are really feeling it.
Hang in there.  Spring always comes.

Valentine Yo Yo Trees!

Hello blog friendies!
I've been making Valentine yo yo trees on vintage blocks.
I think they are so cute.
If there's any that don't sell, I get to keep them!  

I haven't been doing any new decorating or much treasure hunting but I have been doing lots of writing, crafting and taking some nature walks.  I'm glad I have so many things that interest me!

Hope you're all well and happy!

It's Still Christmas At The Cottage!

If any of you are missing Christmas- it's over here!  It's Christmas at the cottage until February!  Why not?

If you're one of those people who can't wait to get it all put away and have the house back to normal, then good for you but if you feel sad taking it down and feel sad afterward then leave it up!   Time goes by so fast now.  I left all the Christmas decor up until the Super Bowl last year and it cheered January right up!  By the time I took it down, I was ready to move on and NO sadness!

In other news, I'm still making yo yo elves and starting to work on Valentine craft to sell.

Merry Christmas!
