What's going on?

When I uploaded pictures of Sarah's wedding, all I could see on the post was a bunch of words. When I published post the pictures came up but when I try to go back and edit, same thing, only words. Not sure what the problem is!

Any way, hope you enjoy pictures of Sarah's wedding! She looked so pretty and happy!

I wanted to show you how big Willie is compared to his mommy! Oh, wait maybe she is just little!

They got married Nov. 13, YES, that was Friday the 13th! Sarah is my little freak! She has wanted to get married on Friday the 13th for as long as I can remember!

Update: Boy, do I ever feel stupid! Thank you so much Isabel of Maison Douce! She explained to me I had the compose tab on instead of the Edit Html! I'm not sure how this got changed, but I learned a lesson today!! Thanks again Isabel!

What about this?

Why is it when your decorating for yourself everything is so much harder? First of all, as dealers we go through tons of furniture every year. Then when there is something you want to do for yourself it feels like you don't have anything that you really want to use! So far this is what I have, but I'm sure this will change several times as I get things that I like better. I tried using all white, but the furniture disappeared into the porch.

This bench in the left hand corner is so cool, but it is very uncomfortable, so I know for sure it has to go! I have another bench I am going to try in it's place.

These iron pieces behind the large table I have kept for myself for about 5 years, but I'm not sure if I really like them! It nearly killed me to put them up cause we had to drill holes in that new aluminum trim! Keep in mind everything will look better in the summer when I can have some flowers on the porch!
These chairs are out of my dining room, I bought some for the porch, but I didn't like them either! I think I might be to picky!

The porch faces the South and we get a lot of wind, so I have to choose things that are heavy won't blow away!

New Roof and Porch

Let me start by saying I have been waiting 15 years to have a covered porch on my house! This summer we had to have a new roof put on our house and it was the perfect opportunity to build the porch. I am so excited to finally have it finished! Now I have an outdoor room to decorate! Actually I have been working on decorating the porch for the last couple of days, and I can't wait to show you the results! Stay tuned!

We took all the railing off so when you set down there is nothing obstructing the view! One rail left to take down!

Here's Spencer checking things out!

More Dealers from Tailgate

There were some great dealers set up in Wilson Hall with us at the Tailgate show! Most of these dealers I know from the old Lakewood show in Atlanta. They have some amazing talent! Hope you enjoy their booths!

Home Again!

I have all kinds of things to report! We had a great show, got to see old friends, meet some new friends and sell bunches of junk! Oh, I mean treasures!

We got to see several old friends that we used to set up with at the old Lakewood, even got to see Cindy of The Plum Tree, she bought a great store counter from me for her shop! Thanks Cindy! Seen a couple of blogger friends as well and of course they supported our cause also.

Taylor Swift was in our booth, but I didn't even know who she was! Sorry Taylor!

Sadly we found out the Nashville Fairgrounds is closing down June 2010, it will be torn down to the ground. The Tailgate show will be held there again in Feb. 2010, but will have to find a new venue after that! I am very bummed that I won't be able to go the Nashville Flea Market after June! It concerns me when I hear about shows closing down, makes me worry about where we will be selling our wares!

I wasn't to sure what to take to this show since it is mostly country (primitive) stuff, so we took a few white things and a lot of industrial. We sold most of the industrial and a few white pieces.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of these two cute dogs, their mom and dad were parking the trailer and they were keeping watch!
