Hello from sunny Florida! Although it's been "cold" (a relative term since it's cold for Florida but warm for Buffalo.) I'm loving the blue sky, of course.
I flew to Ft. Myers last Friday and taught at The Paper Nest there.
In addition to the great product they have in their store, Christine also draws and is now selling her own stamps that are darling. I'm holding a couple cards she made for me with the images on them. Hopefully you'll be seeing them in your local scrapbook store soon!
My parents came down to get me and head back up to Bradenton for the week. We were able to meet up with friends from Buffalo for church and lunch at Peaches on Sunday...
And then my dear friend Joey arrived and a little vacation time with it! It was cold - like in the 40's - on Monday, so it was the perfect day to hit the Bargain Barn. For anyone who is new to my blog and doesn't know what the Bargain Barn is, it is the place were things - "treasures" - go that haven't sold at a regular Goodwill store. Much of it is truly garbage but there are real treasures in there and that's the fun of it! I love digging and finding the good stuff!
How about that sock monkey purse or the lace collar or the sweet little friend dolls??? They actually all came home with me for a total of $1.25. I'll be ready when big lace collars ever come back into style again! :)
We have lots of fun and laughs as we dig around - and are very thankful that some things aren't in style anymore!
Gathered waist, patterned shorts anyone? or a pretty lace dress with 4" shoulder pads? or a nice church dress for mom? :)
We actually shopped for about 3 hours, left to get some lunch at a nearby Cuban restaurant, and then went back to see what new things they had brought out and went home with more treasures! It was a blast! (How do you like our matching stripes?)
We had some delicious happy hour appetizers at a waterfront restaurant on the sparkly water and got to see the beautiful sunset.
I'll take pictures of the other things I got at the BB and post them soon. Today we're off to the beach - it's going up into the 70's so we need to take advantage of that!
