A Halloween Swap

I must say it's been a very long
time since I joined in on a Swap!

But this time I was kinda convinced to play
by my daughter Breezy

and in all honesty since the two hostess's
are so dear

I wanted to Play!

"Ghouls & Ghosts & Glamour Girl Swap!"
Design, Create or Purchase
Sparkly Glamourous Halloween Jewelry

Right up my alley and I about fainted when
I got the name of my Partner..
 Kris Hurst I have always loved her style.
I promise to keep you in the loop when I get
my package I'll be sure to share some pics.

Well I'm off to finish putting my package together!

Sneaking In Holiday Crafting

Busy in The Studio in the evenings~

Finally the weather has cooled down a bit...
and I can actually enter my "Studio" without dying of the heat!

oh and if for any reason you are looking for my
PREVIOUS POST well I freakin deleted it by accident!

I think it's just a matter of not posting enough
that I've gotten rusty...
It can't have anything to do with the fact
that I had another Birthday...
No.... sharp has a tack!!
Thats me alrighty!!

Wow how time flies...
Some days I still feel like I'm in my 20's imagine that!
and then some mornings when I get out of bed
I kinda get a reality check!

I climbed up into the famous "ATTIC"
and dragged down a tub of Christmas crafting goodies

Oh yeah you heard me "Christmas"

So I'm actually able to complete a few of the 
Holiday Banners I had started..

The sweet PINK one below was an any
Occasion Banner and I've just
mailed that off to it's new home~

If you know me then your used to me sharing some of my 
latest Thrift Shop Treasures..
These 2 pairs of glasses are a recent find...

Clear glass so I can wear them anytime

You know what 
I think I'll hang onto them for a bit
kinda fun!

Have a Great Weekend
Happy Treasure Hunting!

Latest Saturdayfinds

The past couple of Weekends I have
been working at local Estate Sales..
My sister has a company that Runs these 
kinda sales we all love so dearly...

I arrive at 7:30 A.M. doors open at 8:00
it gives me just enough time to run around
quickly and grab a few goodies I want!

And that exactly how this Vintage Dolly made
it home with me.. when I purchased her she was
in the golden Yellow dress very cute indeed!
But I also picked up some Vintage doll clothes
and in there I found the Printed dress with the
sweet crochet trim collar...

I think she looks much happier in her new dress!

Now these 3 re-production Barbie dolls
have a story of there own..
I purchased these from a seller on Craigs list

"Sue" the seller listed them has vintage 1958...
well after agreeing to the rather high shipping cost
the package arrived...

Sure the dolls all3 have 1958 on the back of their heads
but no where is any other stamp and the plastic
is not anything close to my vintage Barbies...

and in removing some clothing
there in Black & white

Now the seller is a sweetie and I will get a refund
and I'm sure someone would love these girls so
they are going to be looking for a new home..

It's just not what I was looking for...
buyer beware....

Here is a photo of some of the Vintage Doll clothes
I picked up at the Estate Sale I was working..

And this Ceramic children's dish set
now just how stinkin cute!

Oh and once I got it home and started to wash
it I noticed something 
in the bottom of the mug...

Kinda creepy....
a tiny ceramic tree frog is attached 
to the bottom of the mug..
I've never seen anything like this before!

Well this week Friday and Saturday I'll be working
at another estate sale I wonder what 
kind of treasures will find their way
home with me....
Hope you find some Vintage Treasures too!

October Crafting In August!

Well in my last post I shared
all my goodies for October Crafting..

I did manage to get the old glue gun
back in action!

In between work and taking care of grand-peeps

The past couple of months these 
two grands daddy has been
out on tour so I try and help our daughter
out so she can have some adult time..

One of my latest Salvation Army finds...
Picked up this Picture last week to
hang in my Studio such a deal for $3.99

each others endeavors..

I want to introduce you to Holly some of
you already know her but to the ones that don't....

Summers winding Down

I'm slowly getting back to crafting
in my Studio..

I figured maybe a good place to start would be 
to create some Halloween Goodies
Sure is funny once I had to pack up everything and I mean
everything... it's been slow to get my creative juices flowing

Maybe it's been the heat?  We've sure had some hot days
and I'm really not a fan of the heat..
This time of year all the neighbors peach trees
start to bear ripe fruit..
and I've picked to my hearts content!

And then the fresh flowers everywhere
a little bit of this and a little bit of that...
have filled the vases in my home

I did manage to get outside real early one
morning and plant some new flowers in the front

and with much attention to watering
they are doing pretty well
in spite of this terrible heat wave!

And the best was a visit from my Mom!
we spent some really fun days and nights together
I had to share her with other siblings
but that just meant we would all get together

Fun was had by all...

Hope your Summer has been filled
with excitement
Never a dull moment at our place!
