Got the Itch and Finished Creations!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
It's a Beautiful sunny Sunday here in WI ~ But it is quite chilly out there!!!
But any who ~  I have the winter time itch ~ This is the time of year when I start to yearn to go to flea markets and can't wait for them to start up again.  So off to the Antique store I go.
My girlfriend Diane and I went for a ride in the country and the roads took us to a small town called Pardeeville where we found a cute Antique store  called Pardeeville Wisconsin Antiques Mall.
(Yep I forgot my camera)  This place was one of the nicest antique stores that I have been in ~ in a long time.  The booths were set up so nice, some looked like little store fronts complete with little porches and some booths made you feel like you were stepping inside little log cabins.  The store owners were so sweet and they wrapped all of our treasures with such care.

 Here's some of the treasures I found!
Some treenware bowls, bobbins, springs, buttons, & wooden spools.

cutter quilt heart, cookie cutter, vintage gloves, and some old bottles!

I'm always on the look out for old and unusual glass jars and bottles.
Here's a close up of the two I got.
dog shaped candy dispenser jar with the candy still in it!
a baby bottle for twins ~ how unique is that???

I've been busy working on some Valentine creations and such to fill my booth back up after the holidays.  Here's what I've been up to.

Basket of scrap hearts.

Some shelf sitter signs.

Now my booth is starting to fill back up.

So tell me ~  What have you been working on???
I still have a few more Valentine creations to make and then I need to start working on some Easter items.

Well that's about it for today ~ I just wanted to pop in and say Hi and let you know I'm still alive.
I'm suppose to be working on my taxes ~ YUK
So I better get to it ~ not one of my favorite things to do!

Until Next Time
Stay Warm My Friend!

Hello Everyone!!!

O.K. I have to correct myself  ~ I should change my title to a LOT of my Favorite Things!!!!
This post is LOADED with pictures!!!

I'm going to miss all of my Christmas decorations ~ sadly its time to put them away.

I Loved how my tree looked this year!!!

My hutch ~ that's where I have some of my paper mache' Santa's that I made.

We can't forget about Buster ~ he was patiently waiting to get his picture taken!!!

For Christmas I got a lot of wonderful things  ~ Here's a few of my Favorites!!!
A wonderfully prim doll from my nephew ~ Cody!

A Billy Jacob print from my son Michael and DL Anita!
I so LOVE the colors in this picture!

My husband Zeke gave me the 2011 crystal star from Swarovski to add to my collection.

My daughter Amanda gave me this adorable snow globe!
I LOVE snowmen and snow globes ~ such a perfect gift!

My girlfriend Mary gave me a new lotion bar ~ I was so hoping I would get one.
I Love these lotion bars ~ being a crafter and working on wood outside my hands get really dry and these are the best!!!! They are all natural and smell like chocolate ~ I got the lip balm too!
I'm addicted!!!

Thanks Everyone for all the wonderful gifts!!!

This year I got a chance to go the Garden of Lights at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens.
I Love Christmas lights ~ just wished there would of been some snow!
My Granddaughter Keyarra ~ she had to have the 3D glasses and popcorn for the show!!!
She is standing in the 60 foot caterpillar gleaming with 20,000 LED lights.
I can't even tell you how many times we walked through the caterpillar!

I don't like spiders ~ but this one is beautiful!

Some pretty flowers!!!

And the best for last!
The most Beautiful Christmas Tree!!!
This display was a 45 foot tree with 20,000 LED lights!!

I've also been working on some Valentine creations.
When I get them all finished ~ I will show you again!!!

Today it is really warm out, so I'm going to take advantage of it and go outside and sand some boards for some orders that I have to get done.
But before I go I have one more picture to show you ~ This one made me Laugh!!!
My husband was eating rib eye ~ do you think he has enough to share???
~ From left to right ~
Honey, Dolly, Chewey, Buster and Mitzie (see her little legs under Buster?)

Well I hope you enjoyed A Few A Lot of My Favorite Things!

Looking Forward

May this new year find you

We know we’re privileged to have you in it.
