read

The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market has now come and gone. And whadda weekend! Here’s how it all went down… literally.  I borrowed my neighbour’s trailer once again, (thanks Rudy and Corinne!!) and with a truck stuffed to the rafters (most likely overweight), friend Erika and I head out the day before to set up.

Expo talk

When people ask what I do for a living, I still stumble over the question. Because the story keeps taking new turns. It’s particularly funny when I go through customs. I have to rehearse so I don’t stutter. (Never stutter through customs.) “What do you do for a living?” Don’t stutter… don’t stutter… But the […]

I don’t really understand why so many wait until the new year to clean and organize. It’s silly, really. There are just so many other fun things to do instead.

read

So, on the weekend, I went to an antique auction! It’s been YEARS since I sat in the sidelines, white knuckling my number as my favourite page came up in the roster. I’m not sure if I adore the process or not, but I hung in there, because some things just needed to come home […]

Learn it, buy it, make it! and an update

read
