Santa has left the building:)

Santa was carried out today by his new owner...we took an old santa suit complete with hat and beard and stuffed him full!!! I think he will be well taken care of:)

show & tell

I know this is my second post in one day, but I wanted to show how someone as uncrafty as me can follow directions:) Heather Bullard showed how to make these tissue paper flowers on her blog and I have a lot of old sewing patterns in the shoppe so I thought I would try it!! It was really easy and for my first one I thought it turned out pretty good!!! Now I can't stop making them:)

Christmas at the Shoppe!

These are long overdue, but just a few pics from my shoppe. We have sold a lot since our Christmas open house on November 3rd, but these will give an idea of our displays!

Oh has been so long since I have posted on my blog! Life keeps me so very busy and the holiday season at the shoppe doesn't allow me much time at my computer! We had our Christmas open house a couple of weeks ago and it was a big success! After 5 1/2 years in business and despite the economy we have had a really blessed year. I am so thankful that I can work everday at something that I love. The shoppe has been such a learning process for me and continues to challenge me each day in so many ways!! This Thanksgiving season I feel so blessed and I am thankful for so many things that enrich my life savior, my family, my friends, my customers,and my favorite bloggers:)

Wishing you a very blessed holiday season!!!

chicago antique market...

Another show down...3 more to go! I am so proud of myself because I actually took some photos of our booth and a few others. We had good sales despite the low traffic. It was a beautiful sunny day with a nice breeze. Our kids came with us for the very first time...long day for them but they did great and were a big help. Here a few pics of our booth...

Just a few photos of some of my favorite booths...

A great market to find all sorts of fun goodies!!!

hard to find good help these days...

but thankfully I have!! My 11 year old daughter is painting our shoppe's garage for her summer project. Of course we picked the hottest week so far of the summer, but she is doing a fabulous job and looking so cute doing it!!!

Just wanted to show a few of the things we are gathering for our show in Chicago. The show is July 26th & 27th. I still need to get everthing cleaned up and tagged so this is a short post. I need to start putting away a block of time to blog otherwise it doesn't get done. I'll get better at this!
