I’m Not Sure It’s Treasure, But I KNOW It’s Not Trash

I’m Not Sure It’s Treasure, But I KNOW It’s Not Trash {12}

Yesterday I posted to Facebook about rescuing two boxes of “stuff” on it’s way to the Dumpster at my kids’ school.  I did not say what was in the boxes.  Guesses ranged from books to chalk.  And one person (who, clearly, has been paying attention) guessed, vintage Red Cross stuff.  If you have been playing along(…)

Congratulations are in order for Debra from Bungalow, she has won the MissMustard Seed T-shirt and clay tag! And more congratulations go to Judi!  She will be getting one of my original chalk tags. Judi, if you leave me a comment before tomorrow – you may choose which of these three pieces you would like.  The(…)

Holy Guacamole!

Holy Guacamole! {15}

Because, really, what else would I call a post about guacamole?  And really?  This guacamole knocked my socks off.  We had some with our  dinner the other night and everyone (even those of us who WILL NOT eat tomatoes?) LOVED it.  This recipe was inspired by the guacamole that Mr. Social Media and I had(…)

Lucketts Wrap Up (part two) {10}

Okay, folks.  Tomorrow we move on back to regularly scheduled programming.  My trip to the Lucketts Spring Market was all that I thought it could be and so much more.  I’ve written about all I have to say on what I did and saw while I was there.  Here are a whole lot more photos(…)

Lucketts Wrap Up (Part One) {15}

Have I told you before that I love old stuff?  Yes?       Oh. Can I tell you about it some more? I promised that I would show you all of the things that I bought for myself on my trip to the Annual Spring Market at The Old Lucketts Store and I will.(…)

Pure Prepared Mustard (Seed) {42}

So many of you have come over from Miss Mustard Seed in the last few days.  Literally hundreds of you have made the choice to click through from Marian’s site to mine and I’m so glad to “meet” all of you.  Going on this trip and meeting Marian is not the kind of thing I(…)

The View From Over Here

The View From Over Here {27}

Yesterday, my birthday, I spent nearly the entire day in the car.  Driving.  Alone.  I think you all know, at this point what my destination was.  Quite a bit of planning went into making this trip happen.  It’s not very often that this mom of two hits the road and leaves her family to fend(…)

It’s My Birthday, I’m Bringing You a Present From Lucketts!

It’s My Birthday, I’m Bringing You a Present From Lucketts! {12}

So yesterday I drove from New York to Virginia.  It was a long drive.  I wish that I could say that it was a pretty drive. . . but it really wasn’t.  Before I leave I’m going to check and see if there is a scenic route to take on my return.  It seemed like(…)

Countdown to Lucketts!

Countdown to Lucketts! {16}

This week is full of the usual things – taking the kids to and from school, making dinners, supervising piano practice and taking emergency trips to the orthodontist.  This week is also full of some more unusual things.  FIL is having knee surgery as I type  (good luck Papa!), getting new tires put on my car,(…)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .) {6}

So.  I’m getting ready.  For what?  Well, I have already mentioned my road trip to visit the Old Lucketts Store (I’m torn here – on their website there is no apostrophe. . .).  Next weekend (May 19&20) is their annual Spring Market.  It’s a huge extravaganza of antiques and “stuff” from over 170 vendors and(…)

Pinspired and Produced #8 {22}

I’ve said before that I’m really loving the symbol for the Red Cross right now.  The other night I did a google image search for Vintage Red Cross and this is one of the things I found.  I even posted about my little vintage First Aid travel kit from Johnson & Johnson – that also has(…)

 “And I want that.  I want to be shared and featured and even invited to guest blog.” So, there it is.  The line from my second ever blog post stating what I want.  Earlier this week I was so excited to tell you that I had been asked to do a guest post on another blogger’s site(…)

Well, it’s official.  I’m making a road trip!  I just got off the phone with the reservations desk for a hotel in Leesburg, Virginia where I plan to visit The Old Lucketts Store for their annual Spring Market!  I’m so excited.  This is a two day event showcasing some of my favorite antiques dealers and some(…)
