Best Birthday Ever!

Gettin older has felt good this year! (I don't even mind those wrinkles around my eyes!) I've had the best Birthday ever! Was a great day to be alive! Had a good day at work, then a pizza party with my family (lots of presents for me)! My girls are the best, wouldn't trade them for anything! Thanks girls, mommy loves you!

P.S. Thanks to everyone who sent me a Birthday wish today!

Gracious Gift!

I had mentioned to Lauri of Chippy's that I needed some pillows for my settee in the bedroom! Well, low and behold if she didn't just whip me up some! She is a great seamstress and can make window treatments, slipcovers, pillows and anything the heart desires! She brought several pillows for me to choose from, boy it was a hard choice!

If you are interested in purchasing some of these great pillows go check out her blog, she would be happy to sell you some! She even sells the pillows covers so you can use your own pillows. She doesn't have any pillows up on her blog, but if you leave her a message or e-mail her she can take care of you!

Tailgate Show in Nashville

Well, I must say the show this weekend was a huge disappointment! Not sure what was in play, was it the freezing cold weather, the bad economy or maybe we just didn't have anything any body wanted!! BUT we were not the only ones feeling the the squeeze this weekend! I feel very lucky we sold what we did! And I want to thank everyone who came out and supported us!

My booth was very different, people won't buy white at this show and we don't even bother to take it! But I so love white and don't even enjoy decorating a booth without it! From now on I will have white some where in my booth!

The next 3 pictures are Judy Hills booth!
She always has the best displays!
I had a wonderful time visiting with her!

This is Peg of French Vanilla!
She had some great stuff as well!

Pretty Snow

We got about an inch of snow last night. I know it's not that much compared to what North East is going to get. But it is a pretty snow!


Weight update: I stayed the same this week, Craig lost 1 lb.

Not much progress!

OK! Here's the scope, I haven't had much time to play with my bedroom yet! I did get a chance to redo my mantel in the bedroom. I'm loving the lighter look and not so much stuff! What do you think?


I've put a piece on top of the headboard,
but I'm not sure if I like it.
I think it needs to be something bigger!
And I've added my freaky baby doll art,
I got from Texas Trash!
She has the sweetest face!
That's a pair of baby doll shoes on top of her head!
I changed the center plate out, the one it came with had blue paint and you know me and color!

Cold Hard Steel

Yesterday was spent unloading and reloading the box truck! Now this is a job I usually don't mind, but is was so cold you couldn't stand to put your hands on any of this metal without gloves!

The Tailgate Show in Nashville requires us to carry a different load than normal! White does not sell there so I don't even bother taking it! And, industrial is the only other thing I like to deal in!

Thought I would give you a sneak peek at what we had been up to! Not sure how this booth is going to turn out, but I will do my best!

Industrial lingerie chest?
That's what it looks like to me!
Cool piece without paint!

This huge cabinet looks better in real life!
Great storage piece!

Some more of Craig's fabulous tables!

These little round tables started out life as trash cans.
The wire mesh is copper!
This is one of my favorites!
This started out life as a bicycle rack!
We turned it up side down and put a top on it!
Perfect coffee table now!
Little table has a cute zinc top,
looks white, but it's not!
Love these chairs as well!
They had waffled up inserts for the chair bottoms
and we replaced them with metal disks!
They had tons of paint on them, gone now!

For all those who ask for prices, I am going to my booth today and I will get back to you with answers to your questions! Thanks!
