A Little bit of This and A Little bit of That!!

     So, what's on the menu for life this week?---poison ivy!!  That's right, yours truly has a bad, bad case of poison ivy  and I'm really not very happy about it!  For those of you who've never had this life-altering rash, let me tell you, it's not much fun!!!!  You break out in large watery blisters every place on your body you had the misfortune to touch after having touched the evil poison ivy plant!  Then a bright red, large bumpy area covers anywhere and everywhere it wants.  And, let me tell you about the itching.  Multiple the worst itch you can remember every having by about a gazillon times and that's ALMOST as bad as the itch that poison ivy causes---and I'm not joking!!  Couldn't stand it anymore today so I went to the 'not-so-urgent' urgent care facility and after waiting more than 1 1/2 hours, I got a shot, super strength anti-itch creme and pills to take to kill this demon rash from hell!!  Can you tell I now have a vendetta again this deceitful flora!?!?
   Well, enough of that.  I've been working on my space at the antique mall and it's really starting to look good.  My sells have increased and I'm getting more exposure since I moved to a corner booth on a major aisle.  It's a lot of work but, of course, this is what I love to do!!  I feel very blessed to be able to be a 'resale diva' as well as my full-time job.  Some day I hope to be able to retire and go 'pickin' to my hearts content!!
     This spring will be very busy for us with my monthly Winnie show/shop, the antique mall booth and a new show called Lake Houston Trade Days located right here in Humble.  Hoping it will turn out to be a really good show--3-months in the spring and 3-months in the fall.  Take a little peek at their website when you  

  Enough for now, following are a few pics of my antique booth--let me know what you think and remember
"You are loved"........

It's a really great corner booth.

Lots of good stuff to buy!!

How much more can I cram in there?!

I've re-done this area since I took this picture

Sold most of these vintage bottles since this picture--yea for me!!!
You knew I couldn't post without adding a picture of my sweet grandson, Brayden!

Happy baby likes my booth!!!!

That's it for now--God Bless All and Any who read this.  Until next time,

How Time Flies!!

Wow, it's been soooo long since I last posted and so much has occurred in my life!  Firstly, I must apologize for not posting sooner, but I think you will understand once I 'fill in the blanks'.

The holidays started well, but my mom became sick again and ended up in the hospital.  Seems she had some internal bleeding in her stomach that had to be cauterized, but she is ok now. She has gone through so much in the last few years but she is a very strong person and I thank God for her everyday.  Please pray for my sweet mom "Goldie" that she finds rest and peace and no more illness.

The other major news is that my youngest daughter, who has been living with me again for the last few yrs, decided to move to Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  This is not an easy move in this day and time, especially with a 10 mos. old baby!  After much thought and prayer, Brittany agreed to leave the baby with my son and me until she is able to get established and settled in her 'new life' in Dallas.  Not easy for her to do since Brayden is the 'best baby ever'!  My son Jonathan and I welcome the opportunity to love on this little 'pooter-man' but it is quite a life-style change.  It's been a long time since I've had the responsibility of raising, even temporarily, a little one.  Brayden is a very good baby however and we are very much enjoying him.  We've taken him to the park numerous times and even garage selling with us--hey, we have our priority's straight!!  Not sure how long we will have him with us, but we are taking advantage of spoiling him as much as we can---sorry, Brittany!!

In other news, I just changed spaces at the antique mall were I sell and boy, am I glad I did!!  I was blessed to get a corner booth and I've been selling very well!!  It was hard work moving all my 'treasures' into the new space, but well worth it!!  Move news on that to come.

My shop in Winnie has been very sluggish the last 3-4 months, not a good sign.  However, this coming weekend is the next shop and we are praying people will be out and buying.  We really need a good show this month, especially since the last few were not.  I will follow-up on this after the show.  Please come out to visit if you can!!

Well, I hear my sweet Brayden waking up and must also get ready for my 'real' job, so much go for now.

God Bless all and any who read this,
