Ok, I know it's not Monday and my posts are a little out of order now!! My daughter has become the nail princess (thankfully because I don't do anything over the top anymore) which allows me to participate in mani Monday!

Today was their first day back to school SO that means that she did a back to school related mani....

Thrifty Tuesday

One of the secrets to successful shopping is ALWAYS being on the lookout....ALL the time, EVERYWHERE you go!! 

Always means even if you are going grocery shopping, there is the potential of something great there! Everywhere also ties in with always...I got this 3 pack of Hanes light weight low cut black socks at CVS for $1.75 - a STEAL! 

All the time means buying things off season....for example....these tights! The day I bought these it was 95 degrees....the thought of tights is Cray-cray BUT I snagged these fun babies for .75. They are grey with a black diamond pattern - perfect for the cooler months!

Where do you find your best deals?!?!

A day in the life.....

I want THIS car.....

Can you guess what this means?!?! Momma has new digs!!

A BLANK canvas for creating, decorating and being inspired!! Stay tuned for lots of new house updates!

Driving down the highway we saw this bus....I was laughing so hard!!

 It looks like a pig, right? Speaking of pigs, have any of you watched Honey Boo-Boo? She has a loud ANNOYING tea cup pig...

Kids head back to school this week....

Which meant lots of supplies....and labeling....

AS I was labeling the pencils, I thought it would be a neat pic

and then I took a pic of the markers....
What have you been up to this week?!?!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012


Seems like a funny topic, doesn't it?!?! Here I am blogging for the world to read, never in my wildest dreams imagining (AGAIN) I could feel like my privacy was being invaded....

YOU know WHO you are and I hope that you will be gracious and respect the fact that you and I have NOTHING to talk about...we aren't in the same boat....we did not have the same experience....

and the fact that you even contacted me makes me feel like my privacy has been invaded....the good news is I am not letting that stop me from being WHO I AM.....

New Header

Hey y'all.....I am looking to have the pics in my header re-done (I want to keep everything else, just change the pics). I am  looking for reasonable rates.....shoot me a message if that's your thang!!


The 3 French Hens Market is THE place to be...according to Romantic Home Magazine and Romantic Country Home magazine (you can read all about it by clicking on their link above). There annual night market was yesterday and I was part of the magic....before I show you my pics, here was the entrance to the "HEN HOUSE"

Wasn't their set up adorable?!?!? They did a great job!! There were chippy wooden fixtures, chandeliers, etc.....

HERE is my vignette.....I LOVE this space right across from the canal because I have a gorgeous backdrop.....

The chairs and table both SOLD!!! As well as many of the smaller items pictured....

Here is a close up of the fabric chandy that I got a lot of ooh and ahh's, but didn't sell - and I am great with that because it gorgeous and I wanted to keep it!!

Here was the other side of my booth space with more of the smaller items....I didn't have a canopy because it's a lil challenging to set up a canopy all alone, but it worked out ok...I moved with the sun!! The canopy does add a finishing touch to the display though...SO for all the canopy makers, make one that is one touch for one person to set up ;)

My girl and I in our boots! Her pink one's were the hit of the day!! 

Picturesque photos of the canal and awesome bridge....

If you saw me at the market - leave a comment and say hi!! 

I'd rather have a life of "oh well's" than a life of "what if's"

This market symbolized more than just success in displays, sales and meeting new see, I used to have a partner that helped me with these markets, and this person LOVED it as much as I do...shared a genuine passion for it and it was awesome....but as life changes, you drift your seperate ways and you are left with just memories....THIS was the first market I have done by myself in a LONG time, I wasn't sure I could do it, I knew my displays would b great BUT not everything I dreamed of....but guess what? I DID IT!! There is great success in knowing you can do something....and to me that is an "I DID IT" and if I had failed, it would've been a "oh well" instead of wondering "what if" my words of wisdom this morning are " YOU CAN DO IT"
