This was the sky yesterday when I was on my way to the book signing of Maelynns new Doddle Book. I believe GOD was guiding our way. The light was so bright that, I had to slow down and fumble for my camera. Inside I found friends and alot of fellowship. In this picture Maelynn is showing off Jeanette's published layout. Way to go girlfriend!!!!! It was so good to see all my scrappin buddies. I believe there is a few books left at Scrap Mania, ask when you go in. Congratulations to both Maelynn and Jeanette. So Maelynn, when is the next book coming out?

I watched a Show on Discover tonight about a Green Wedding. And I am more Eco friendly than I thought I was. But to tell you the truth it is because I was raised in the country and have the use it up up-bringing. We eat alot of what we grow, including beef. Well,I buy it. We eat vegetable in season. Put somethings in the freezer or can for the winter. We recycle alot. But this is because I am cheep. The wedding dress in this show was made of hemp and organic friendly material, but they touched on the fact that there is shops in NY that specializes in used gowns. You use a previously worn gown and donated it back. Is this not what Goodwill and Thrift stores are in the South. I would not go as far to say I am going organic. I like my burnt red hot dogs and a good beer every once in awhile. So I think if all this natural stuff is good for us then, fine and good. Let's all eat farm fresh vegetable and fruit. Support our farmers. They need it. I heard it quite a few times, at the strawberry patch, farmers make more $ selling their land to developers than farming. Our grandparents did it, but could we? Can you tell it is getting late and I am babbling. Think about it, Green or not.

This is a shell I found while at the beach. Some would have throwed it back, I on the other hand thought picture frame. Thinking outside the box, once again. Waited for the perfect picture and added tacky glue and instant frame. So I challenge you to find a " outside the box" frame this summer.

We have been to auctions the last two weekend and I have no camera to show all the goodies. Camera is only 3 months old and is at the shop, more on this subject later.
But I will try and tell you about all my treasures.
I seem to buy in trends, like some days are bottle days or wooden boxes. Two Saturdays ago it was a paper day. Old pictures, old letters from the 1800's, news paper articles, maps, and ledger paper. A old playpen that I see as a set of corner shelves. I will take before and after pictures of this one. It was a good day. This Saturday, was a good day too. I got old vintage Valentines, a box of trim for altered projects and a old handmade wagon toy. I got 3 bookshelves for $5.00 each and a old primitive green potting table. I always go crazy over paper items and old black and whites. I even sometimes sell them in the store.
It has been really busy around here this summer and it looks like this next months is no different. Stay Tuned.
