Moving Back In

Just before Christmas I ripped up all the carpet upstairs and had hardwood flooring put down. I love it! However, my house has been a disaster for quite a while now and I am so ready to get things back to normal. I am really trying to take my time with decorating my Sewing Room/Etsy Shop/Studio/Office and not rush things. Sometimes I have to move things around until it looks just right to me. Anyway, here is peak at the floors.






I just love them. I did have to go back and paint the trim after they finished (I took the pictures before I painted the trim).

So today I have been working on unpacking some of my stuff and trying to get things back in order.






I haven't really posted much lately on my junking adventures (Dec and Jan are usually slow for me) but have no fear I am still junking. I have picked up a treasure or two over the past couple of weeks.






















My Etsy shop has been doing well, but I have not had a lot of time to list over the past couple of months. Most of this will go to Etsy but I am keeping the little chenille chick (he is adorable),

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Blogger Friends are the Best

Last year I sent a blogger friend some Christmas Card cuttings that I found at an Estate Sale. This year Deb at Garage Sale Gal sent me some very beautiful cards she made using some of the cuttings I sent her. I just love them. Thanks so much Deb!







On a different note, I just sent my brother on an errand. Hoping he is successful on the quest I have sent him on. If he is I can't wait to share!

Hope you are enjoying the Holiday weekend!

This Week's Junk

I hit two estate sales on Friday and then a few yard sales on Saturday morning. Really not a great haul this week but a few fun things. Mom, my sister and I spent most of the day Saturday packing up our junk from the booth we have in the Antique mall and moving furniture out. I have decided that Etsy is more my style. We removed some of the better stuff to list on Etsy and marked down what was left. I surely hope what is left sells because it is not a fun way to spend your day. Anyway, back to the junk I picked up this week.

I was happy to find some vintage holiday stuff and the little pink chenille chick holding the broken egg (she was hiding down in the Easter Decorations box) is my absolute favorite find this week!











I also got this really fun Mr. Peanut bracelet!



Vintage Photographs



And a lot of other odds and ends.










Just an update of my floors upstairs, they will finally be finished the first week of December. I am so happy! We have been living with a mess for a while now and I can't wait to get things back in order. I also can't wait to share the beautiful floors with everyone!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
