Christmas is Coming!

You can tell by all the unusual things appearing in the shops and thrift stores.  For instance:


Hundreds of beads and dozens of large safety pins-what a time consuming this craft must have been!  Kinda cute and if you want it, look in our Etsy Shop!  I think it just needs a big gold star on top to finish it.  Have a great weekend!  ~S~

P.S.  It is our daughter’s 27th birthday!  Happy Birthday, Sweetie!  You are worth every minute of labor and that unexpected c-section-we love you!  Mom and Dad

I’m Excited!!

This is our new blog and if you have found it already – good for you!  I haven’t published the new location on our old typepad blog yet, but I will.

This is basically a test since this is my first real post that hasn’t been imported.  My son has been instrumental (as in he’s done 98% –  if not more-thanks son!) in getting this blog started-he plugs in all the goodies and then I play.  We needed something a little more user friendly and I think this may be it!  ~S~

A bit of a new look for us……

Retro Style!    One of our talented vendors found these vintage Drexel chairs and recovered the seats  in a fabulous animal print.  They look terrific paired with this corner end table freshly painted black.  (I always thought this style was an absolutely enormous unwieldy size but it’s not so bad between two chairs).


So what do you all think??  ~S~

New to our Etsy – Halloween Items

Just added two sets of sweet little Halloween items to our etsy – check them out below!


Halloween Elves

UPDATE:  The elves have found a new home-thank you!


Cupcake Toppers

It’s beginning to look like Halloween everywhere I look!  Yippee!  ~S~

Happy Fall!!

We really love Halloween in the shop so since I have Jury Duty tomorrow and won’t be back in until next week, I thought I’d share a couple of pictures with you.



First vintage Halloween candle I’ve found and I think it looks cute under this dome on a pedestal base.


Does anyone else love striped pumpkins as much as I do?


Gorgeous, huge floral arrangement and check out the container!!   


And this handsome fella is a vintage Beistle skeleton I couldn’t resist

See you all next week!!  ~S~
