I was partnered up with, Patti , her sweet blog is called, Pattin-Patti. Yes! She is another fun and super talented sweet lady! These swaps are so much fun for so any reasons. But getting to know another blogger a little better is always the best part! Patti, was also very understanding that it would take me a little longer for getting her gifts made, as I have been suffering so many frequent migraines. I think I will call her Patient-Pattin-Patti! Thank you Patti for understanding.

Vintage Doll and Pixie and Pyrex Friendship Cinderella bowls

Hello! What have you been up to lately? 
I been hanging out at thrift stores a lot this year, haha!

I found some great things including these sweet dolls. One is a Bendable Pixie that lays on your bed. I think her face is so pretty. Another favorite is this little blinking eye doll! She also has the sweetest face!

I discovered the red doll bed a while back! It even has a sweet little decal on it and it is red! I just had to add it to my collection of toys, which was small but is growing!
My sister blessed me with this beautiful set of vintage Pyrex Cinderella mixing bowls! Aren't they stunning? The pattern is called,  Friendship. It was such a generous and thoughtful gift. The color is vivid and they are near perfect!

I also have fun playing with the photo editors. I like this black and white version!

I been suffering from so many migraines this year and now they are up to 4-6 six days a week. So that is miserable along with Fibro, etc But I keep a positive attitude as much as I can. Tend to get behind on many things and that can bother me a lot, too.
But I always pray for tomorrow and that it will be better!
I pray you are doing good.

God bless you,

My Vintage Booth and Crafting


Hello! I am glad you decided to come for a visit! I know, I haven't been posting very often. My blog buddies keep reminding me. You know who you are! Haha!

Well just in case you wonder what I have been doing. I have spent a lot of time this year working on my Booth #B112 at the American Classics Market Place, in Colorado Springs. It is vintage sales and crafts. So I am hopefully going to be even busier between now and Christmas with making a lot of fun things for my booth. Wish me luck!
I tend to be the slowest person in the world when I craft or sew or crochet, etc. It is a wonder I ever finish anything! As a matter of fact, I have plenty of unfinished projects that I will be working on again right after the New Year! Do you do that? Stop before a project is finished?
I can not believe how fast this year is flying by. My brain is not accepting that summer is over, let alone that we are coming up on winter. Oh yes, the leaves have changed and most have dropped. It was a wonderful display! I am blessed to live in Colorado where we have such long Indian Summers. It might get cold, but warms right back up!
 
I get up early and take my son to the bus stop before the sun comes up. And it is getting colder and colder! But it sure is a pretty view!
Well, I guess I better get back to business. Hope you are all doing great!

Blessings,

Happy 5th Birthday to Retro Revival and I won!

Have you ever felt so happy because you won a giveaway! Well, multiply that times a whole bunch and that is how I feel!

A few weeks ago while roaming around on Facebook, I seen a post come up from one of my favorite bloggers, Cindy, at Retro Revival Biz.

Her blog just so happened to be celebrating its 5th birthday!  To celebrate, she was giving away an apron, sleep mask, shower cap, and insulated travel flat iron case with a chance to win on her Retro Revival Facebook Page!

Being excited for her, I knew that I should share her post and I never expected to win! Then on the announcement date of the winner, I was strolling through my feed and there to my eyes surprise was my name listed as her winner! "Yahoo!"



Opening this package up was so much fun! It all looked so pretty, I almost hated to open it! Almost! lol!


God bless you and your business, Retro Revival Biz!
May you have many more years of success and fun! Thank you so much!!
