Can I fit all that?

Today was a glorious day!
The weather was a bit cool, but the sun was shining all day!
A great day for loading the truck.
I've been a bit worried about how I was gonna fit all the inventory into a 10x14 booth.
So, Craig put down some tape measures to mark out the booth,
and I went to town cramming it all in there.
No place to go but up!
I did it!
Of course I will have extra things on the truck in case we sell something.
It saves so much time when you get to a show if you know where things are going.
I know it's hard to tell anything about what it's gonna look like since there are so walls to stop the eye!
But I think when I get out all the smalls and some fluff stuff it will be fine.

I love this drafting table!
But it was missing it's top, just so happened we had an old top on hand.
It was exact size needed for the base!
Looks like it's always been on there.
Throw in a couple of bar stools and there you have it!

I am so excited about the show!
You don't miss it!

Oh My!

I have been so stinkin busy getting ready for the show,
I don't hardly know which end is up!
We load tomorrow and I'll be glad when that is all over.
Weather supposed to be good tomorrow, 
hopefully I can get all the large items priced before Craig loads them.
I've been so busy I haven't even taken any photos lately!
Thought I would leave you with a few that I took when
I was playing around with my camera awhile back!

I love close up photos!

Look at the worn out place in the toe of the baby shoe!
So sweet!

This is a photo of a photo! Hahaha!

Rebecca and Donna's Visit

As most of you already know last week Rebecca and Donna came to visit me!
We had a great time and it was a pleasure playing hostess!

Look at these two, they are cute as a button. 
They are as lovely inside as they are out!

We had some very interesting conversations about life and the Lord.
After their visit I have done some soul searching and spent a few hours meditating! 

Several bloggers choose a word to start off the new year with,
and I decided I would do the same.

My word for 2012 is: GROW
I intend to grow many things this year!
My faith.
My happiness.
My relationship with my husband.
My health.
My friendships.
My family ties.
My business.
My time. (Yes, I want to find more of it for me!)
The seed that Rebecca left with me!

To sum it all up,
I intend to GROW a better me!

I don't exactly how all this will take place,
but I have a whole year to work on it.
And I feel strong enough to depend on the Lord to send me what I need,
when I need it!

I'm Loving Gloria Vanderbilt

Let me start by saying I can't believe it's been 8 days since I posted!
I have been so busy I just don't know what to do with myself!
Working, working and more working!
And doing a little entertaining with Rebecca and Donna!
I'll be posting about our visit in the next post!

Till then, meet Gloria Vanderbilt!

Yesterday I sat down for a couple of minutes before I went to work and turned on the TV.
I don't usually watch any kind of talk shows,
but when the TV came on, the show Anderson (Cooper) was on.
And he was talking to this lovely lady.
I realized it was Gloria Vanderbilt and it peaked my interest!
Then Anderson blew my mind when had called her mom!
Yes, Gloria Vanderbilt is Anderson Coopers mother!
Of course, I'm sure most of you already know this, but I'm a little slow!
Her story is inspiring and tragic at the same time!
She is a talented designer, writer (12 books) and a artist!

Anderson said when he was young they moved every 4 years.
But, during the four years she completely redecorated every 2 years!
Now she stays put but changes her apartment around every 3 months, even repainting!
I knew I liked this woman the moment I laid eyes on her!

Anderson went to her apartment with a video camera and shot some footage!
The moment he walked through the door what was the first thing he zoomed in on?
Wait for it....................!
I just about fell out of my chair!
But, after all she is an artist!
This is one of her art boxes!
Love it!
I know most of you think I'm strange because I love doll heads and doll parts.
But what can I say!
I'm not the only one!

The only advise she ever gave her son was:
Follow your bliss!
She really is a remarkable woman!
She has a web site if you are intrigued!

All photos came from Gloria's web site.

Don't forget, the show at
The Vintage Market Place
is swiftly approaching!
Check out their blog to see all the
exciting dealers that will be attending!
