Combined Blogs

Okay, I haven't even visited this blog for a year!  Well over a year.  I am now blogging at My Little Chou Chou and have combined my love for tea parties, my booth, craft fairs and everything else in to one blog.  It's easier that way.   I'm decluttering everything in my life including this.   So feel free to look around here but for new posts please visit me at the link above.   God Bless and thanks for visiting.

Craft Fair Busy-ness

Sorry I haven't posted in so long.  I've been busy, busy, busy.  Who isn't this time of year?  My daughter and I just did a craft fair.   I haven't done one in a couple of years so I was kind of out of the swing of things.  But I want to show you some pics of how it looked.  

We didn't do as well as we had hoped, but our desire to do this was not crushed by it.   I will take what didn't sell to my space at the market and then plan for next years craft fairs.   We didn't get in on the game early enough to book more than one this year.

When my DH and I were first married, 28 years ago, we didn't have much.  But we enjoyed what we had and one of those things was this old radio.  

 This was in the early 80's and everyone of our friends had the latest electronics and the music to go with it.   We had this vintage radio that we listened to Saturday Night Oldies on, every Saturday night.  We loved it.

Yes it still works.  It takes a couple of minutes to warm up, but it works.   It gets most of its use now during the Christmas season as I sit at the dining room table doing crafts, this old thing blares out the songs of the season.   I am constantly telling the grands "don't touch" as they love turning these old knobs, see the fingerprints!    

Ahhh, memories.   

And look at this beautiful black and white transferware teacup!  Man I fell in love with it right away.   I found this for .50 at a garage sale!  The brass stand was free at another garage sale and the silver folding tray was yet another garage sale find for a couple of bucks! - score!  

 I hope you enjoyed this and the other vintage thingies that are on display at

I am also joining for her Garage Sale'n Party on Friday! 

Thank you for stopping by!   I really do enjoy your comments.   If you like what you see here, please feel free to follow my blog.   We can do this blogging journey together!

I'm doing it!

I've rented space at American Classics ~ the largest antique mall in Colorado.  I am so excited!  The first week I sold a couple of things and already have a check.  It's a small space but I took what I could get.  I'll see how things go for the next few months and if need be I will get on the waiting list for a bigger space.  Come visit me, vendor C21, at American Classics in Colorado Springs.

Vanity Chair

I bought a simple round tablecloth at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago with no real plans for it.  You know how that goes.  I think I paid fifty cents for it.  Here is what I did with it:   

I draped it over my metal vanity chair and gathered it together in the back.  Then I pinned the white rose on.
You can see that I put a white toilet seat cover over the seat and voila - a cute vanity chair. You can see other Show and Tell items at

Kitchen Utensils

This is just a part of some old kitchen utensils that I have displayed in my
kitchen. I've picked them up at yard sales, estate sales, antique stores
and some were given to me. Kind of fun, especially the shadow box
with the old recipes and labels in it.  
Be sure to check out
or click on the bird on my side bar to see other fun vintage things.

I went to this Garage Sale

and look what I found!  I've been looking for a tea cart and I found this one for $10.00.  I like embroidered pillows and this one matches the blue in my room.  And I have a plan for the white tablecloth that does not involve a table.  I will show you later after I do it and take pictures.   The teapot is beeauuutiful!  I wish it had cups to go with it.   I spent less than $20.00 for all of it.
Keep on hunting - you never know what treasure you will find!
