Where Has the Time Gone?


It seems like it was just the first of June !!!  Is it really time for "back to school" shopping?  If so, that means my hubby's summer break is almost over!  Maybe there will be time for one more quick escape before he is up to his ears in alligators again.  ANYWAY ...



I want to thank everyone for their understanding comments about my sweet  Zoe.  I wonder when I will stop wondering what she's doing or listen for her tippy-tap claws in the hall.  I still catch myself thinking that I need to get home to take care of her.  I know that all of this just means that we really loved her and she will hold a special place in our hearts forever.  Again, thank you all.  It helped to read your comments.

So onward!  I know I haven't posted anything, much less pictures of projects.  Elf Patty and I have been working on Halloween whimsies for my Vintage Halloween Bootique on October 2nd.



 OH - MY - GOSH !!! 



My workroom and garage are about to burst at the seams with Halloween - and I'm not exaggerating.  I bought a fabulous chair and table this weekend to take to Molly Mo's Summer Antique Faire



I was so excited until I got home and realized I didn't have a anywhere to store them.  After a few hours of re-organizing the garage, they are in, safe and sound.   Before that, Diane and I did our own little version of "American Pickers" and went on a spree in a sweet gal's shed.  Now that was FUN!  Lots of wonderful, rusty-crusty stuff. 

SO, even though you haven't heard much from me this summer, I have been collecting treasures, making new things and keeping myself busy - like that's ever a problem!  Keep checking back and I will begin posting pictures of new merchandise to tempt and tease you. 



AND - hope to see you this Saturday, July 31st,  at the Barn House Vintage Home and Garden Flea Market in Battleground, WA.  Twenty-four of the finest antique/artist/designer vendors in the Pacific Northwest will join the barn boys to give you five fabulous hours of shopping heaven!  This is always a special event, so don't miss out on the fun and treasures!  I am going to help Diane (Molly Mo's) so stop by and visit.  See you soon!  M.  P.S.

I'm all about recycling, repurposing and reusing, 



but, isn't this going a little too far ?!!?

My Faithful Friend


Zoe
Feb 1997 - June 24, 2010

The first time I laid eyes on you,
I knew right from the start,
that you were meant for me alone;
you put pawprints on my heart.
