Wiskers is LOVING that the BED is upstairs...He is watching every move. Moral Support ! Or is it Meow-ral Support ? All this moving is taking lots LONGER than I thought...Love the new look. Now what do I do with the three other booths full ? ( The ones you can not even get in. ) Still working on the top level...Can not look at the mess I have created below. Five more booths to redo. Think I need more than meow-ral support !
All this MOVING is making Wiskers tired. A cat can only take so much change...We are redoing lots for Fall...Change is in the air...booths are blowing around like leaves in the wind. We are excited for the change ! Watch for more pictures as we progress... My Hero has more anti gravity projects in the works !
It's a MYSTERY... OLD PHOTO'S where everyone is dressed in their Sunday Best ! Who are these people? Pictures are windows for future generations into the past. Only the well to do had portraits and paintings done. What are we leaving behind for the next generation ? We have digital cameras and most of our pictures are stored on computers that out date themselves. I love old photos for art projects - instant relatives - Who are they ? What were they doing ? Where are they from ? They often weave their own stories... How about you - what are you doing to save images for future generations ? We have lots of these wonderful images in the shop...waiting for creative minds and hands.
Sunday my Hero and I went for an Antique Hunt down South... We found lots of Fun Shops to hunt for TREASURES in. The best part of our trip was the lovely picnic we had in a little park while waiting for the shops to open. We sat in the shade and enjoyed a lovely breeze... that was the coolest part of the day. None of the shops had air so we were dripping by the time we left...HEAT does not STOP a true ANTIQUARIAN ! My best find was this drying rack with original old white paint !
What a WONDERFUL FOURTH... Thousands turned out for Sparkle in the Park...AMAZING ! Great Job CITY OF LILBURN ! We roped off the Shop front and had Friends in to watch the Fireworks...best seats in the house. ( we are right across from the park ) We grilled hot dogs had potato salad , baked beans , watermelon , cupcakes etc. Perfect 4th fare.... With it being 98 out , it was wonderful to be able to go in the Shop to get cool. Calling Ellie...You Won one of my Make Do Pockets...My Blog Anniversary give away ! Let me know your address so I can get it in the mail... Congratulations !!!!
