Problems with my Blog Page

Hi Friends!
I've been wanting to make a new post for quite some time,
but I've run into a snag.
What's a blog post without pictures?! I LOVE pictures!!
Ever since my Christmas post, I haven't been able to add
any photos to my posts. I keep trying...
and my sweet hubby (who can fix anything)
keeps trying to figure out what happened.. but so far
it still isn't working.

It's very frustrating because I have so many things I'd love to share
but it kills me to not add pictures!

I even have a fun trip lined up with reservations at
a great looking B&B, but how can I share it with you...
WITHOUT pictures?!?!

Hopefully, it will all be resolved soon!
Thank you to those who check back in with me every so often.

Merry Christmas to All!

I can't believe that tomorrow is Christmas!
It's practically here!!
 
Truly, where does the year go?
 
We are enjoying beautiful snow on the ground here in northern Illinois -
truly a White Christmas!
My family and I are cozy & warm at home -
busy putting up a few more decorations,
wrapping a couple more presents for family,
getting ready to fire up the oven and make a couple batches of Chex Mix,
playing a few board games on the dining room table,
and planning to start up a movie to watch together as a family.

 
What a joy
to be with family
celebrating
and remembering the
reason for the season!
 
 
 
 
 
From our house to yours,
a Merry & Blessed
 Christmas!

Where Has the Time Gone??

Hi Friends!!!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted here. What a whirlwind summer and fall!!
Yet we all feel that way - so I'm no different.

Besides doing shows, I now have some of my things in a sweet shop in Rockton, IL, called
The Rustic Rooster Antiques!!
 
It's exciting!! I'm just getting to know some of the other great gals who also have spaces in the shop.
I just took some new things up to the shop this week.
 
I've added several of these old gals. I love their stern looks! And the owl is a hoot!
 (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)


 
I love these wonderful TRICK or TREAT signs
made from corrugated metal roofing!
My SWEET hubby made them for me!
 
(remember - you can double click on any of the smaller photos to make them bigger)
 
Anyone out there love chalk ware?
How about this black cat!
I also have several pieces of Tea Leaf china with copper luster designs -
BEAUTIFUL for the autumn holidays!
And I added a great line of 100% soy candles with the CUTEST labels!
 
 
And what's fall without CARAMEL APPLES?!?!
(even if they are fake!)
 
I hope you are enjoying the
BLESSINGS & BEAUTY
 of AUTUMN!!
(Can you believe we got our first snow today- flying through the air against the backdrop of colored leaves! WOW!)

Getting Ready for the Vintage Market Show


Outside the weather is gray and gloomy
            but inside I am having fun getting ready for
                              the upcoming Vintage Market show.

If you live near Rockford, IL, I hope you'll join us. Fifteen vendors in a vintage home!
I'm sorting through so many treasures - deciding what goodies to share with the buyers at this sale.

                                I'll start with some WEDDING WHITES and SOFT PINKS.

            This Fenton fluted milk glass cake stand would be perfect for a wedding cake or cupcakes!

                                 I'll also be bringing lots of ironstone and mix-and-match dishes.
                                                  CREAMY WHITES and AGED SILVER!
                                                         
                                               
    
 
 
I know the sale is going to be wonderful! Such a wonderful group of gals with fabulous things!
I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
Be sure to go on Facebook and check out "The Vintage Market".
Click on PHOTOS and scroll way down to see the indoor pictures of last spring's show.
