Map It

I just love the look of maps and globes in home decor! There are so many wonderfully crafty ideas in blogland and on Pinterest right now (apparently you can decoupage a map onto just about anything). Get your Mod Podge ready, girls!

Happy New Year!

After an extended break from blogland I have returned! 

Did you miss me? I certainly missed you.

Things were busy busy busy around here throughout the holidays. My wonderful Goddaughter, Maya, spent the week between Christmas and New Year's with us. She's a mini version of her mother, my VBFF :), so we hang out, chat and shop like champs. It was a great week!

I have spent the New Year thus far cleaning and de-cluttering my house. I am talking WOW at the clutter! It amazes me how much random stuff I have accumulated. I am always thrifting and junkin' which doesn't help...and yes, it is an addiction, albeit a justified (and really fun!) addiction...I must add new stock to my little antique shop, no? Problem is things must first come home before (maybe) going to my little shop. I come across some really cool stuff ya know (like the two killer rattan end tables that look fabulous in my living room that I paid $5.99 and $7.99 for each...seriously!),

 I thought I would leave you with some pictures of things I love (and love to look for while out on my buying adventures). These are the kind of items you will find in my shop (and in my garage, dining room and office waiting to get to my shop :)  All pictures are courtesy of pinterest (my other addiction). Enjoy!
