I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

I have added lots of touches of white throughout my home this year since the chance for snow is always an uncertainty.  This way, I will at least have a white Christmas - even if it's indoors.

Finally Back

I am finally back after a crashed hard drive put me out of commission for over a week.

I traveled to Elkhorn for the last flea market of the year on Sunday. Unfortunately, it rained (and poured) on and off which meant that there were fewer dealers and some outside dealers who packed up early. I still managed to find a variety of fun treasures - mainly for our Etsy shop. I will be posting some of these items later in the week.

Junk Bonanza

I just returned home from Shakopee, MN and the Junk Bonanza. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to take photos as I was too busy shopping all of the wonderful booths. (Also, it was requested that we ask each vendor if it was acceptable to take photos - and they were all so busy, I did not want to interrupt.)

The booths were just amazing - packed from top to bottom. There was such a variety of vintage, industrial, salvage and repurposed wares.  We bought early bird tickets - well worth the cost for first "picking".  The show was certainly inspiring.  It was great seeing Jan from Gracie's Cottage and Kathy from Lilac Lane Boutique and Taylor and Lisa from Sommers Breeze Antiques. Their booths were fantastic.

I found lots of fun items - some to sell plus some keepers.  Here is a peek at some of the treasures we will be listing in our Etsy shop in the coming weeks:

We also stopped to meet the team representatives from Etsy.  It was great visiting with them and talking "shop".
