Backyard needs some decorating...

I haven't had too much extra time to do much of anything besides unpack, organize, hunt for lost items in boxes..oh, and the list for the totally lost.  My house is really cute, and can't wait to get started tweaking it to my style.  The people who owned it before me loved wallpaper, so in the meantime I will have to make due with the "blue" in the kitchen, breakfast room and living room. I especially love my house because it's just perfectly sized..not too big, nor too small to clean real quickly.

I have ventured to some of the local shops to see what I can do to decorate my backyard.  I have furnishings for the inside, but nada for outside. The backyard is really good sized and manicured just perfectly~but, there is no color right now.  All along the fence line there used to be beautiful gardens last Spring and I can't wait to get started next season.  Time to break out the decorating books!! Can anyone give some ideas? I don't think I will do anything until after the Holidays, but for me it takes a long time to decide what I want!!

Fall in Athens

Fall in Athens, Texas is a colorful site to see.  Hay bales, pumpkins, gourds and scarecrows abound around the town square.  People come from all over the state to take family pictures.  So come on down and tour the square and shop in our shops.  Don't forget to visit the scarecrow trail at the Arboretum.                        

Adorable Knits

My grandmother is a wonderful  blessing in my life!! She has been knitting forever..seems like it anyway.  She has made baby blankets, afghans, pot name it.  Last year she began working on hats and scarves for baby, tots, children and of course adults.  No we have so many items, we don't know what to do with them. They were a huge hit last year selling just as they were.

This season I have added my twist to the hats...our customers are going crazy (as well as folks that buy wholesale for their shops!). They aren't making it very far out the door, as soon as I design them and show them to someone, they are sold quickly!! Which is great!!! The ones featured are available and will be with me at this weekends Canton Trade Days~hope to see you there!!

Cute matchboxes

I have an obsession with scrapbook embellishments~take a peek at the matchbooks just added to my collection of goodies for sale. Matchbooks are a must have for anyone~and a great back up to the candle lighter that always need replacing...well in my house anyway. The house always smells wonderful for whatever the season is....

Canton September 2009 cont...

Here are a few more pics from our booth..we were just outside of the main Arbor was very slow. My dream is to be in a shop or in the buildings, but for now we have to buy our time outside. I am hitting the pavement to do some consignment shops or you can still shop at the Plano Antique Mall booth.
