My favorites of the Vintage Dolls

Some of these dolls still have tags or the boxes are well marked. I want to sell them to start a web store. If interested or you know who they are, comment for me. Thanks I hope they are just what someones been searching for!

Vintage Dolls

Who are these girls and one guy? These belonged to my mom and it's time to pass them forward. Does anybody recognise them?

redshed sale this month Feb 27th!

A coworker turned me on to the Redshed in Grapevine,Tx. What a story, and what fun it is to hang out on the sales date. Women lined up early, coffee in hand, trying to sneak in! I always walk away with a treasure! It's a pleasure just to get the flyer in the pretty graphics. Check out their website at : The yard and garden are a delight to the senses! Their story is inspiring. I love their prices too! They have done some classes in the past, I hope those come back. Hope you locals have the day off!

Bandit was spotted in the middle of the night attacking my basket of yarn

It must be the breed. I just read Tara Frey's blog, funny I caught Bandit in my art studio the other night attacking my yarn. We are planning on getting a puppy just the color or hers and her name is going to be Sadie also ! Is Sadie short for something? I was always worried about the cats.

One more thing before I go to sleep..

I am reading "Blogging for Bliss" by Tara Frey and just love it! Today is my first day having a blog and just had to post one more thing!

My thoughts have turned to my mother. We want to be just like them as little girls. I practiced my penmanship till it looked just like hers,a seed was planted and I love fonts! Then we grew into something else-unrecognizable as a teen. But in the end I am just like her!

We both love Dumpster diving,junking,shopping,reading,creating,and most of all, Laughing together! One day on the phone she said she had to buy a new TV, hers wasn't turning on anymore. A few days latter I was out flying a trip [oh yeah, I've been a Flight Attendant for over thirty years] and she left me a message that she just needed batteries. I think I will put them in her stocking every year! She made my day!

What's exciting me now!

Well, learning to blog, reading books about blogging and surfing all my favorite art,antique,junk,and suppliers sites.

I read a t-shirt at the Junk Gypsies store that said "Well behaved women rarely make history." I want all their t-shirts. But this struck a cord in me! I searched and found it came from a book; "Well behaved women seldom make history."

This says it all for me, bad girls can go good, but those bad years where worth something!
So we can start a new life, a new adventure. We can forgive ourselves...reinvent...and move on!

My preacher once said "Build a bridge and get over it! "

It's with gratitude that I embrace my past and move forward down a new road!
