Playing Catch Up

As I mentioned in my last post, we spent Friday morning in Silverton at the Old Stuff Sale fabulously organized by Joy. Here are a few pics. from that fun day.

Joy's booth.














Martha's booth.













Brandie's booth.













Sue's booth














Phyllis and Niki



Diane from Molly Mo's booth

And now, a few pictures of what I bought.

Rose hat box, lamp, old mirror and sewing drawer.

Adorable pair of 1920's rose paintings with velvet frames.

Assorted rhinestone bling.

I spent the remainder of the weekend, painting, sewing, making tags. Wish I had another week to get stuff ready for Expo.

Today I am taking the kids to the airport to see my neice who has a layover on her way back home to Texas. She was visiting her parents in Boise. I haven't seen her in years so it will be good to visit with her. Then a stop at Monticello to pick up a few things for Expo. Hope you all have a wonderful week! I will be taking another blogging break until after the sale. Wish me luck!

Whoooooooa, my sweet little chick!! What a wonderful place to be able to visit! I found some great finds in Calif. this week and all in my daughter's shed. I've posted some but will be posting more tomorrow. Gotta go look at some more stores today in Oceanside.

Smoochies,
Connie

It would have been fun to run over to Silverton to join you. Couldn't add it to the day. It wouldn't have been very nice to disappear while my family was here! Thanks for sharing. Maybe next year. ~Adrienne~

Hi Lisa,

I have been reading your blog for a while but can't remember if I have posted before or not. I love reading about your thrifting adventures! My brother lives in Silverton - I will have to
ask him if he was at this sale (I know they like antiques). I enjoy your blog and will be back.

Smiles, JoAnne

Hey Lisa! Thanks for the pix of Joy's event! It looks like you have really been enjoying the summer. I just hope we can go camping soon...it just seems like there is always soooo much to do. I think next year we are going to pledge to n-o-t fill the summer up while planning shows when it's still winter!! Hope to see you at Expo...
