Some Exciting News...

NO I am not pregnant!!!! NO I am not engaged!!!! NO I didn't win the lottery!!!! Wow I know big disappointments huh? LOL As my nephew would say...



For those of you who are my friend on Facebook already know. I am taking the plunge and opening a booth at the local flea market. Steve is on board (only because I will be selling my stuff and cleaning out my basement and garage.) LOL. No seriously even though he won't admit it he is excited too. It is a small space now, but if I do well I told the lady I may want a bigger booth down the road. Anyway, I stopped into the flea market Tuesday to talk to the lady who runs it. I had talked to her before and she said there was a waiting list to get in. So I only went to ask how long the list was so that I could get prepared. She said actually someone had moved out that morning and that there was a space available. It was meant to be!!! So I jumped on it. Steve and I rounded up a few things and took them in that day. I didn't want to leave it empty!!!! OK I was excited to get some of the furniture out of the basement to make room. So this was the first day... LOL not very organized... but I wanted to get stuff in there. (the crap in the upper right is NOT mine LOL)



Today, we worked on some walls to cover the crap in the next booth. OK we did it so I could hang stuff in my booth like primitive shelves, bowl racks, signs, blanket cranes and other goods Steve comes up with that we will be trying to sell. We also went to the Habitat for Humanity Restore today. First time ever and I am hooked!!!!! I bought a really awesome display cabinet for my tiny booth. Can you tell I'm excited!???!!!! I lay awake at night planning how I want my booth to look. OK OK back to today... Since it was raining AGAIN we decided to paint in Steve's parents garage at one of their rentals. OK you got where we were right? LOL. Anyway... we are taking shape. (I apologize for the pics today they are cell phone pictures) I will keep you up to date on our progress and pictures will be forth coming once I get some idea of an organized booth.



This is how our little neck of the woods is looking as of today. This is not a pond you are looking at. It is a field next to the garage where we were. And as I type we are suppose to get snow tonight and tomorrow and rain again Saturday!!!! UGH I am so tired of seeing water coming from the sky.



Today I also took the opportunity to take pictures of my living room since I rearranged on Tuesday. I am in the process of organizing them and hope to post them tomorrow sometime here on the blog. So stay tuned tomorrow. Since I am running on 2 1/2 hours of sleep since I worked yesterday I am going to get off and go to bed. One last thing I will be posting the second step on our quilt project on Sunday so if you are quilting along please check back. Alright I just reread what I typed and it is really scatter brained, SOOOOOOO seriously I am done. No more to read. Go to the next blog. No really I mean it. Bye. See ya. LOLOLOLOLOLOL I am slap happy tonight. Good night everyone.

At one time I had three booths in three towns. I had so much fun decorating them with my stuff. It always helped to rearrange once a month. I wish you much success. I found a free x stitching pattern thanks. Blessings! Lara
