Happy New Year

This past year 2013 has been a amazing journey for me. I so thankful for my friends at secondhandchicmarketplace.com to invite me into there store. I have met some very talented and amazing women I now call my friends!

My blogging has not been the best this past year as my job, booths and markets have kept me very busy. I apologized and that's all going to change in 2014! The reason why its changing is my last day of work was December 28! I am officially RETIRE!
That means I can now work my business "Vintage Goods" full time! I`m so excited and looking forward to a exciting new year. I see many new adventures coming in 2014 and I`m really excited to share them with you!

Thank you for your readership, I really do appreciated you.

May you and your family have a blessed New Year.

Vintage Market Days

If you lived anywhere near St. Louis, Mo. you know this past weekend was our first vintagemarketdays.com .
I went Friday at opening and the crowd was unbelievable and it was raining when the gates open!
I didn't take these pictures till after 4pm as you could hardly walk thru the barn when the gates first open.
The first booth as you enter the barn was the beautiful and talented "Rachel" of http://shadesofblueinteriors.blogspot.com/
Rachel was very sweet and her furniture was GORGEOUS! This bed was over the top beautiful!
Rachel uses ASCP and does beautiful work. It was nice to connect a face with a blog friend.

My Cow Painting

I love the cow paintings missmustardseed.com has in her home and shares on her blog. I have a friend that paints and show him the picture of Marian`s cow painting. I wasn`t sure if he was really interested as "Pete" paints lots of wild stuff. He`s more of a graphic artist. To my surprise a few days later he shows up with this cow painting for me.
I was totally shock when he show me this cow painting. Pete ask me if this was something I was looking for, AHHHHH yes Pete, I love it! I told Pete he could sell these and I would be happy to help him with his sales. Pete agreed and I will have some of Pete`s cow painting for sale soon. I guaranteed no two paintings will be alike. Pete show me a picture on his phone of a small brown calf he was working on and I`m amazed of the talent of this young man. We will have paintings available for our annual antique and vintage show in August at the "Festival of the Little Hills".
Let us all remember our veterans and troops this Memorial Day weekend. Spend time with the ones you love this holiday weekend.
"God Bless America"
