Someday I will master this blog, the text never shows up the way I set it up. Also I wish there was a way to preview it before I post it. As this (below) makes me look like a dummy...
Wishing for spring, thank goodness it is almost around the corner, when I looked out the window this morning
the first thing I saw was SNOW, which directed me to my album of SPRING THINGS. I painted these sweet
robins enjoying the early morning.

Everyone loves seaglass and shells,
this mirror showcases some of my favorites.

I cannot wait to start planting.

The yard before and after yard Sale

My buddy and I sell all kinds of antiques, collectibles, junque, etc, we use his yard or mine, this Yard sale was at his yard. I have to show pics of the yard before the yard sale and after, he is a neat-nik and would be upset to think people saw his yard only in a mess.

Antique furniture at the yard sale

We have several pieces of antique furniture, I don't think I got all of it, but here are a few, I just love the hugh yellow armoire/hutch, I want it but i already have one so this one is for sale. check out the pics.

Yard Sale Garden Section

We have so many things, I took several pictures, the garden and the archetectual sections are the best, although we have nice antique furniture also.

What a great yard sale, May 18 & 19

We were off to a great start early Sat morning, THEN...the rain came, very early, so we postponed until the next day Sunday AM. the best day for any yard sale is Sat. but around our neck of the woods, the weather is the boss. As with any yard sale it takes lots and lots of work to just get it started and outside, let alone pricing and tagging all. I wish all of you could have stopped by. We did well considering it was only a 1 day sale. Maybe we'll do another one soon, if only I could depend on the weather men, they seem to be guessing as I am. Check out the pictures.

Marketing pros ????? Yes or No?

I got this marketing quiz in an email from a friend. Try it, its fun and will relieve a little stress, it also serves to remind us how advertising logos,and slogans etc influence us and how well or not well they work. Have fun!

Here is a little bit of information I wish I had months ago, try it you'll really like it, just go to the site and check it out, you will not be sorry trust me, and I think lots of you will be pleasantly surprised.

Mosaics so Shabby but CHIC

I really love the look of beautiful vintage bone china, unfortunately so many older pieces have chips and cracks, alas, a wonderful way to enjoy them is to use them for mosaicking. I started out with the chipped ones, then to the faded, eventually I was buying sets just to break up because I needed more than I had. It is surly a habit forming craft, the more you break the more you buy to break and it goes on and on. The outcome is a piece of art that is vintage, and will become an heirloom. Here are a few of my mosaic pieces.

Romantic Dream Bed

This is the most romantic bedroom I have seen, it is just what I love. Maybe someday!!! Talk about a canapy, what a beautiful swag effect and so high. It reminds me of a loft in an old brownstone in Boston or New York City.
