Christmas 2013

Hello and a Very Merry Christmas to everyone...
I have been so busy with boutiques, then my invalid husband which leaves me with not much time for blogging. So decided to come on today and put up just a few decorations.
This first little Santa I bought last year at GW.

Large white Santa has been with us a few years.

A sled holds some cards.

Entrance hall table.

Pink Angel on the mantel.

I really like this little "Christmas Gift" girl.

A couple of Santos Angels.

This is "Winter Angel"

May you all have peace and many blessings this Holy Christmas Season.
Still having problems with my blog, as you can see my side bar is down at the bottom.

My Ladies

My side bar is still down at the bottom. Have tried everything and cannot fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Holidays To Everyone,
Busy, busy season for all of us, friends and family are a calling, ovens in our kitchens are filled with baked goodies and they smell delicious.

These are some of my ladies that I will be taking to my boutiques. I always enjoy dressing up pretty ladies, these I bought at the Rose Bowl here in CA. Had many more but have sold them.
This first one is one of my favorites, probably cause it hangs on the wall.

The color turquoise has always been a gorgeous color so of course had to dress one in this color.

Vintage shoe carries a small lady.

Lady in creme was so much fun to dress. She goes with any decor.

One of my dress forms, wish I had taken the before picture.

May all of you be blessed this Holiday Season

Random Pictures

Something is wrong with my blog and all my side bar is at the bottom. Has anyone had this problem and what can be done???

Hello to all my dear blogging friends,
Hope all of you have been enjoying life and the season, plus we are all looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Here are a few pictures, some things I have made, well I will explain each one.

This first one is a an old doll head I had and didn't know what to do with her. I went looking in a thrift store for something to put her in and found these two little angels, with mirror and an opening for a votive, thought it was the perfect place for her and this is the end result. I am happy with it.

Here is my collection of dress forms, some I have dressed others just embellished them.
Different view of my dress forms.
My friend Lexa, she sells at Rainbow, CA, gave me this doll head and I sat her in this shoe. To me it's like she is driving it, so left her in it. Placed a large crown on her and embellished.
Next is another old doll head that I had and she fit perfectly on top of this little teapot. An old ring is her crown, then embellished her.
Some tell us that we must earn spiritual blessings, but Jesus says, "Just ask."

Pumpkins Everywhere

Hello to all,
Went to Trader Joe this week and had to take pictures of their beautiful orange pumpkins and flowers. It was such a delight to see the many pumpkins they had and everyone buying them, they just looked so festive.

Had to bring some flowers home, difficult to choose.

My favorite is pumpkin pie but pumpkin spread is right behind it and let's not forget pumpkin bread.

Aren't they just gorgeous?

This is a wonderful time for children with the many parties, the costumes and of course all the candy. Please have mom check all the candy before you start eating them, ok?

We Lived in a Haunted House

Happy Halloween to Everyone,
Just before Rick and I were married we bought our first home. Little did we know that it would be "haunted" yes "haunted"...
Our neighbor, whose name was Mrs. Dee, told me that people didn't last in the house because they heard strange noises. I really didn't pay too much attention to that, we were newly weds and getting our first home all put together, decorating and well you know how that is.

However, soon their after we heard the noises. It was a two story home and when we were down stairs we could hear foot steps upstairs. Rick worked nights and I was soooooo scared at night and did not sleep good at all. Rick and I talked about it and we decided to list the house for sale. Well a couple of years went by the house did not sell and we were expecting our first baby. After the baby came I just could not walk to the kitchen at night to get his bottle, it's as if my legs were made of noodles and could not walk.

Would you believe it took four years for it to sell and sold on the very last day of the last listing. Every night at 9:00 someone would come up the walk way and on to the front porch but never knocked. I had also talked about this with my parents. One night my dad said he would stand at the door and open it just when they came on to the porch, so he did. Like clock work at 9:00 the steps came up the walk way and on to the porch, he had his hand on the door knob and opened it immediately, well of course no one was there. Who was haunting our home? What had happened in this lovely home years ago? Many questions with no answers, what do you think?

Also just about every night I had horrible dreams. Someone was always trying to break into the house and our phone would not work, I would wake up even more scared than when I had gone to bed. What did this mean?
Thank God the house finally sold we bought the home where we still live and love our home, which is NOT "Haunted" Will try and post more often, just too busy...

Rainbow Buys + Random Pictures

Hello everyone,
Well here we are the first day of Fall. The weather here has changed, we have cooler mornings and nights, some sunshine during the day.
I decided to share with you a couple of pictures of what my daughter, Julie and I bought at Rainbow then some other random shots that I hope you enjoy.
This is her guest bedroom and she bought everything you see here.

Still her guest bedroom and she bought everything again except the dresser, of course. Trying to get things ready since she is having guest coming in a couple of weeks.

I bought this gorgeous half apron from a lady named Lori. She was so sweet, just look at all the work she put into this.

Of course these are all vintage doilies. It looks so pretty hanging in my pink kitchen.

One of my granddaughters visited us from New York. She has long gorgeous hair but this day had it up cause it was a warm day. Taken in my patio.

Driving down the street saw this trash can that these folks put out on the sidewalk for everyone to enjoy the sunflower that grew in it.

I took these from my car, could not resist. Notice the traffic jam, I saw others also taking a picture.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy this amazing season of Fall with all it's stunning hues of orange, browns and greens.

Rainbow, CA

Well Hello to all, Finally I am able to post, did have a bit of trouble but I made it.
I wanted to tell everyone that my daughter Julie and I went to Rainbow. CA this past weekend. They have the most wonderful Vintage Market Place four times a year. We try not to miss any, it is so much fun. When we get hungry we go to her car to eat, we always take our own lunch. Then we go back to finish up or to pick up somethings or do more shopping. We just cannot get enough of this amazing place. It is presented by Rita Reade and Christie Repasy, who also have a booth.
Here are a few pictures that I was able to take, could not take more cause I was too busy looking and buying.
They have a theme every time and this time it was Farm Girl. Here is the entrance.

Many of the ladies dress up their umbrellas.

Folks shopping.

Loved this dress form all dressed in lace doilies.

Orange booth.

Nice place.

A place to stop and play checkers for awhile.

Great booth, well they all are.

So many lovely things to see, admire and purchase. It's difficult to leave a booth.

It was a very warm day and many of the booths had large containers of fresh lemonade for anyone to enjoy and cool off.

"Go your way...for this day is holy to our Lord;
and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength"
