Last Weekend I was in California

Went for a quick trip to Pleasanton, California to see my Aunt, Uncle and Mom.  They asked me what I would like to do... now that is a crazy question to ask me.  OF COURSE I want to check out the local antique store!!!  What a great find.  We had so much fun in the store.  I will share more of my trip later.
See the popcorn wagon at the front door... 
there was fresh popcorn for the taking... YUMMY!
Now is this a scary chandelier!
I have always loved carousel horses.
This advertisement on the wall caught my eye.
These are kind of SPOOKY!

FAIRY TAG

A while back I was blog skipping and saw this fairy.  I love Fairies!!! I emailed Jennie, The Artistic Stamper, she was so kind to share a picture of a vintage box of "Fairy Dye"  Please check out her AWESOME blog HERE!Link

Sears Catalog

A friend of mine needed an old catalog to make a card... so I am posting this picture for her... and anyone else that could use it

Sneak PEAK

Here are a couple of sneak peak pictures of the altered tin I mailed out today.  "A Swap for All Seasons"... I had fun gathering all the little goodies to fit in my small tin.  some things were too big or I had too much and had a terrible time deciding what would go and what would stay.  In the end I was really happy with all the treasures.  SO HAPPY I had a hard time mailing it off.  I would have loved to get my little tin myself.

Now I have to wait patiently for the mailman to deliver my tin from my partner.  I can't wait to see what treasures it will hold.  I hope it arrives tomorrow.  




I spy a flower, key, gold and silver, lace, something round, something blue and something pink!



Sent off to European Papers



I sent it off for their auction.  I had a great time making it.
 
Artists use a three-dimensional torso as their canvas to create a mixed media work of art. Pieces are displayed in the gallery with a silent auction running to mid-November to benefit breast cancer awareness and research. Deadline for entries is September 16, with the show opening in October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) and displayed into January. To find out how to enter go to European Paper Company!

Where Have I Been this Summer?

A lot of my summer has been spent at the race track... I take a ton of photos of my husband racing his car.  I love my SLR and enjoy being able to share his sport even if it is from the sidelines!  Even though graphics changed on the car during the season.  The car has remained reliably fast!!!  Last weekend he ran the quarter mile in under 9.4 seconds!!!!!
