We're Back!

Hey Folks! Bonnie (my mom) and I are back! It's been such a long time since we last touched this blog, but we are going to kick it off again.

So, since our last post, there have been several updates in our lives.  We had the chance to travel to two AMAZING antique swapmeet shows:

·      The Farm Chicks Show - Spokane, WA
We saw so many great booths at this show.  You would not believe the number of locker baskets I found! But, I did notice some great highlights from the show that are turning up everywhere – large maps, burlap everything, and large sign, light-up letters. 
·      Remnants of the Past Show – San Luis Obispo, CA
This show is one of the highlights for us each year.  This year, the venue changed to the eccentric Madonna Inn.  However, this allowed for more vendors, including some of our favorites – hand carved pumpkins, glitter everywhere, and junk made beautiful. 

(an update on these shows to come)

Also: Becca’s room was redecorated.  Enjoy some of these pictures.

Bonnie decided to go with neutral colors for the room, with a few pops of powder blue.

An old dresser with vintage books, my great-grandmother’s old typewriter, 
my old riding spurs, and an old suitcase. 

A vintage typeset drawer, found at a garage sale for $3, to display some of my favorite 
jewelry pieces – one of my favorite parts of the room. 

A window frame, with scrapbook paper and corks inserted into each pane, which 
serve as photo boards or dry-erase boards. 

And finally, the best part of the room – a paint-stenciled wall.  

Well, it has been a wonderful year! Many updates are to come.
