Gearing up for a.....

Treasures is gearing up for a HUGE sale but before I announce the date I want to see if anyone out there with handmade items wanted to participate? 

Jewelry, pillows, etc. you don't need to be local! 

Contact me and we can work out the details.

I'm also looking to purchase wholesale- let me know if you are interested!!


P.S. photo found here

A little peek...

Here's a small peek at what I've been up to lately...

First up was the trout release program at Lil' Red's school. They raised them from eggs till it was time to release them. More on that to come.

Then there was our first crack at homemade doughnuts. 
Ummm it might be our last crack at it as well.

There was a little painting for both Lil' Red and I.

Along with a little gardening. Very excited for our Dwarf Lemon tree but I see we already have little critters!!

Also shopping for pillows and paint for this area as well as trying to talk myself into painting the 3 sets of French doors and 3 fixed windows. 
So far, I'm not doing a very good job at it. 

If you're wondering why there is no mention of the Lil' Man, well that's because he's almost 13 and unless I pin him down, I'm finding it very hard to keep him around!!!

What have you been up to??

Sidewalk Sunday

There was a HUGE local yard sale event happening in our town this weekend. There were over a 100 homes participating and in the best downtown neighborhoods, dripping with charm.

  So it wasn't a big deal that I didn't find anything to buy. I still got the chance to get up close and personal with homes I normally admire from my driver side window at a speed of 35 (okay maybe more).

 Think I remembered to bring my camera and share them with you?

Of course not! 

That will have to be another trip, perhaps the Vintage home tour that will be taking place in May!!!?!

I was a little disappointed at what was offered. It was either clothes or furniture with ridiculous price tags.

That's why, when we made a wrong turn and noticed a woman standing next to THE perfect chairs for Lil' Man's room, we didn't even stop.

 That is, until she waived at us to come back.

Curious, we turned around and pulled up just as she was pinning the "FREE" sign on them.

Now, they need to be recovered of course, and in case you're counting, that makes 5 chairs and I haven't a sewing bone in my body.

This SHOULD be interesting!
