The Hardships of Motherhood!

Daughter #2 had forgotten a few things when she left Sunday to go back to college. So of course, being the great mother that I am, I took them to her today. It was such a hardship, but since the town is loaded with my kind of shopping, I trudged on over there! ;)  I was lucky today and found a few things that are just my style! 

These are the ones that I am keeping (maybe a few more!) but the majority of them will be for sale in my new venture!

My parents and I now have a booth in a new antique store that has opened in our area! We still are working out all the kinks and adjusting it and readjusting it. When we get it where we are happy I will take a few pics to show!

I was there today and a lady recognized me from my blog! What fun! She is a photographer and has two blogs. One is her beautiful photography and she just started a new vintage blog. Her photography work is amazing. If you have a chance hop, skip, and jump on over there for a visit @ Amy's Photo Blog and  also With a Vintage Twist! I think you will be glad that you did!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Wow, where did you find all these things! I love the red. We saw some of the Schilling spices today at Candlelight. It was fun to meet you today. And, yes, it's fine to mention me here. I don't know why you can't comment. I'll have to figure that out. Thanks!

Hi Sandie,
Oh my, I just love those old tins and seasonings! The graphics are amazing!! Good luck in your adventure. A quick question?? My hubby came home with a box of brown ceramic telephone insultors and the brown gadgets that goes up inside of them and attatches them to the pole. Do you know if these are of any value? I found some insulators but they are the blue ones or clear ones which I have but I have those displayed in different places with those little tea light battery candles in them. They look cute when the light is on sitting on my shelves. Hugs and thanks for taking the time to answer me in advance!

So wishing you were closer. There would be no need to open a shop you could just drop them off and I would just write you the check! Best of luck and thanks for the link...smiles...Renee

Thanks, Sandie. Those darn radio buttons. I think it's fixed now. And, I updated my post with your information. Good luck with your booth.
