Flea Market Weekend

Fun Flea Market Weekend

Well it was a busy weekend with make up games for all three kids and I did manage to get a flea market trip in too. This is a picture of one of two sconces I got, and I think I will keep for now, lol.. I love them and all their glam!

This is the biggest hanging basket I have ever seen, that I just had to have. It was $25.00 ad the thing is HUGE and BEUTIFUL! Loving this too.

Some wonderful barkcloth that will be on ebay later this afternoon, along with a few more pieces.

And the Best French Copper & Brass Phone a gal could want! And it works too. This beauty will also be on ebay later this evening.

Tomorrow I will be posting a new give away, so be sure to check back. Also, lots of goodies going on ebay later this evening, so I will be sure to post a link to that as well.. but my user name is: pink*daisys

Have a great Monday!

Big Brothers are the BEST!

I never had a big brother growing up, I am the oldest and I only had a very pesty little brother. He is not that bad now, but he use to be! So when my Carly was at her game last night and was told she was going in at catcher, which is her brother's position on his team, she was excited. She of coarse had a little trouble getting the equipment on..

"Mom do you think you could put the camera down, and help me?"

Not to worry, Thankfully "Big Brother" was in the stands and ran over to help, without being asked, and I was able to document this!

A few last words of advice

She knows what she is doing!

Like a pro.....

Big Brothers are the Best!

Busy, Busy, Busy

First off, Happy Mothers Day to all. Boy I have been super busy the past few weeks. It seems it all the things you volunteer for, just come at one time, or one right after another and you can hardly come up for air.

So what has been happening.. I turned 40 on April 27th, These are kids all dressed up to take mom to dinner.

We have a new Star in the family, Carly. She had her Third grade musical and it was very cute!

Here is the whole third grade singing. They had a great time and our music teacher is the best!

I have been sewing like crazy.. Had an art show.. Here are few things I had for the show.

I love this one, it is so pretty and romantic looking..

A fun colorful one too!

One of the stands my husband made me to hang my purses off. He did a great job!

I have a totally new respect for anyone who does art/craft shows..WOW is that a lot of work. Not only just making it all, which you need to start like a year ahead if your name is Mechelle, and you have a problem saying NO to volunteering!, lol..But just the set up, and all the things you need. I have never done a show before and had NO idea what I was doing. I have a few good friends who did help me, Corie I would of been lost without your support :) Thank you! You are the best!!!!!! But I had a great time, and I will so do it again. I have learned that Crafters are nice people! They want to share and help out and I made some wonderful new friends too. It was a great day.

Here a few purses I did.. I love SIS BOOM fabric and think it makes everything you sew, look so pretty! So I used a lot of this fabric and boy ole boy did I get a lot of compliments on the fabrics. Thanks Jennifer, your fabrics are the best!

A very good friend of mine, Emily, came to the show with her girls and they worked my booth so I could get out for a while. I love walking around at shows, but when you working one, you can't do this, unless you think to have someone help you.. Yes, that was added to my list of things to do and change. But look at this great thing I got for my garden.

All these items were made from glass bowls, cups, plates.. and I mean they are BEAUTIFUL and boy do they sparkle in the garden. I wanted it all.. but settled for the red one for my yard.. Very afordable at $12.00 I love them all.

Are these wonderful or what? I had a sweet girl come into my tent and tell me she heard someone was up the way with the same kind of fabrics she had on her buckets, but done in purses and arpons. Well that was me, lol.. Anyway when I wondered out for a while, I found her tent and WOW, beautiful tins all covered in the best fabrics.. How can this not make you smile? And pretty your things will be in these.

yes, I had to get a few.. Love them!

And one of my favorites, are these cute and adorable coffee scoops.. Are these great or what? They really are one of a kind and lucky me I got one for Mother's Day!

So this is what I have been doing.. We also just had a flower sale for our school all weekend, and I co-chair that with a few other moms and that also took up a lot of time.. but I am back to blog on a regular basis! I have some wonderful things to give away! So check back daily as I have things to list and things to make you smile! And hey, turning 40 was not as bad as I thought.. Have a great night!~ Mechelle
