Brrrrrrr! Jack Frost Has Moved In


It is SO cold here! -15 and my windows in the antique mall are totally frozen up. I look like I live in an igloo. I know blow a fan on it, well all I get is a teeny little porthole to peek out of. Today I put a sign up that I was open by phone call only. I stayed in the apartment and stayed warm and hopefully not catch a cold! You can't even see my







Valentine display from the road anymore, lol. Only one more day of this deep freeze and that is a good thing! Owning an old building isn't all it is cracked up to be:-)






My friend Linda gave me this award~~Thank you my dear friend!

Sweet Nothings~Dolly~Nora Lee







I thought I would share some photos of my 7 ft cabinet mostly full of my vintage little girl's toys. I love all these and most are all before my time I still love them all. I worked on an estate a few years back and bought loads of antiques out of the house. I told the people if they decided to sell this cabinet I would like to buy it~I offered $50 for it and they said it was too much and sold to me for $25! They were super nice people. It was already painted the cool aqua green too! It is in the entrance to my apartment. I get to look at all that fun stuff everyday:-) I tried to get pics of each side of the shelves but I missed a couple. I decided to post these photos today because they are so colorful in this blah winter with no color!
**I gave up trying to get these photos in any order.

Don't forget about my Friday Flea Market~~~New items have been posted!

What a wonderful cabinet and filled with so many treasures. I would love to open it up and play with everything. I see things I had....the Ginny doll was my love (mine was destroyed but someday will get another) and I see Storybook dolls....all these pretties must give you so much pleasure.

It looks very cold! That is funny that you have the little port hole to look out of! Good for you for staying warm and safe in your apt. Too bad you couldn't make a heart-shaped "porthole" for the Valentine display! LOL!

That same cold front blew through here last weekend. One night we got down to 9 degrees... that's way too cold for a Southern Girl.

Love your display cabinet :-)

Hope you have warmed up a bit.
