Today ended up being kind of a maintenance kind of day. My son needed to have some work done on his braces, so I pulled him out of school for a quick hour.  What makes our little treks into town special is always stopping at Tim Horton’s. I get a dark roast, one and one, […]

I hope you don’t mind lots of pictures of junk over the next little while… you know… as in new finds. It appears I’ll need to stock up again, for a very special, super cool event, hosted by The Olde Farmhouse… I think I’m gonna take in an auction or two… but most definitely the local flea […]

Public speaking on a new chapter

read
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 done at least 1 million garage sales. Maybe even 2. But when you cart your stuff off your property into a small temporary booth, it’s a whole different story!  Remember my other posts on all my stuff I was bringing HERE and HERE? I knew I was in trouble as soon as I started […]

How to survive an antique auction

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

“Where did you find that? “Where can I buy it? “Where’s your store? As many times that I’ve created a project, I get asked at least that many times if not more where one can find the stuff I use to create with. Or if I sell it. There’s never been an easy answer because so much […]
