Already Been Done & Happy September!
Don't you just hate it when someone else has your same idea you have used for years and *poof* there YOUR ideas are in a magazine. I have had that happen to me many times. I have been doing things for years, and then Martha declares it is a "good thing" and I knew it had been a good thing for years but SHE gets the credit. I have been leafing through a few new magazines (not hers) and there are some of "my" ideas! Guess even if I had shared my ideas long ago someone else still would have gotten the credit huh? Don't ya just hate that?
*Up above is one of my jars I did, my vintage altered spoons and one of my frames. The spoons and jar are in my Etsy store, the frame has sold.
The summer has flown by, where did it go? I love fall but I am not ready for it yet. I have had a lot of fun in the camper this summer (just parked out in the back, I don't take it camping) I have had to get a lot of repairs done on my building, I had a tenant move out in the middle of the night so there is that to deal with, the repairs to the apartment, cleaning etc. Lots of sales to go to, auctions, the store to run, blah blah blah, that has been my summer this year. I just survived our town's Summer's End Festival last weekend. That is a very busy day for my antique mall but I am SO glad to have it over. The fireworks were great like always. Nice to watch them from my home and not have to fight the traffic. I watched them in my jammies this year just like a little kid, lol.
It has been a little over a year since I started blogging so I am going to do a little give away for my 1 year blogversary:-) I have several things fun things in this little pile and maybe I will find a few more things to add before I mail it. I also added one of my little cherry camper tags to celebrate my sweet campers one year anniversary too!. I will pick a lucky name next Sunday, September 7th.
Saturday we went to Indianapolis to shop at Half Price books, I got a great retro housewife book, It is full of fun things. Also shopped at Trader Joe's, I love that store, then ate at Joe's Crab Shack. We ended the day at they Symphony on the Prairie, it is an outdoor concert and ended with a wonderful fireworks display. We really had a long fun day.
My sweet friend Linda over at Somewhere in Time gave me this wonderful award a long time ago and I am just now posting it. Thank you so much Linda!! I am always so honored when someone passes on an award to me. I need to pass this along as well but I will research to see where it needs to go.
Hopefully things will calm down around here and I can get back into the swing of blogging again. I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and I will pop over and visit everyone in the next day or two!
This is a set of neat old wallpaper hat boxes I purchased this summer and this darling little bird cage.
