These sunny days ~

Finally a sunny day in probably the rainiest state :( ? Oh, Where can I get some sunshine? I can't stop thinking of sipping pink lemonade out in the garden and enjoying a sunset and a fresh bouquet of flowers from the garden made of lilllies, foxglove and hydrangeas and peonies.....Reading my favorite magazine.. Stirring my lemonade with one of these pretty spoons, and watching the kids play.




There were sweet old-fashioned flowers, romance and a rose of promise, just some of the words I found below from my old Anne of Green Gables book, I love looking for text and then pasting it to vintage ledger paper then lots of glitter of course, then I cut them out as I need them for things~

Gathering my finds for a show I do with my friend Jenny, she has a sweet barn that we set up our flea market a couple times a year , full of vintage finds and white furniture . I stamp all my tags with Cavallini's number stamp set that I just love because the numbers are vintage cash register style.We are looking at the last weekend in May or the first weekend in June , i need to get out and find more treasures to sell, Jenny does really well because she has so many things , she's been collecting for a long time and even had a shop and now she just does the flea with me a two others. Will post in case your in the area and will also post pictures of all the best goodies. A few things on my every growing to do list! And I made even pretty backed with a copy of a new vintage wallpaper I bought.
1. Gather and price my things for the flea market at the barn
2.Fix my esty shop by adding new things
3.Finish up upcomming articles
4.Write, proofread then write some more
5. Make more portabellopixie pants for my girls
These are really only a few but I'm working on it !!

Hope to see you again soon~

I totally agree with the two ladies in front of me; your images are gorgeous! Well how are you doing these days? I have been thinking a lot of you. Hope all is well!
I love the Cavalini stamps too! I have an old school set too with number they are bigger, about 3" and I use them on birthday cards and when one of the kids had their birthday. Don't forget to take photos when you have your booth in the barn. Have a great Sunday!
