Well, as much as it was my plan to do a blog post when I was away, my laptop just wasn't going to cooperate. Things started out fine, but it did an update and after that, .. nothing but problems. very frustrating. Anyway, I'm home now. It was so great to get to spend time with Sandy and her family and to get to see Cindy. The show in Puyallup was amazing, and I have lots and lots of shows to share. Way more than I thought I had taken! I really want to share them with you, since there was so many awesome booths, so I will break it up into a couple of posts. I'll share the first batch today.
First I wanted to show you a card I did using the "Creating with Retro Christmas CD". I cut the window area out and added a piece of clear transparency, then added the sentiment to the inside of the card, so it could be see thru the window.
I love this image. I just added a piece of vintage lace to the inside of the window opening to look like a valance over the window.
This was one of the coolest "Junk" shows I've ever been to for sure. So many fun things, great booths, and good prices. The only bad thing was, I was flying home...so it was SO hard to see so many cool things I wanted and not be able to take them with
me :( I actually ending up mailing home a couple of things..but oh... trust me, had I lived closer... My car would have probably been full.

You would not believe how many of these printers letters Sandy sold.
This coffee table was $18 ( I die)
I did bring this little sweetie home with me in my suitcase tho.
Needless to say, her booth was cleared out pretty fast.
My friend Deb collects vintage globes. I couldn't stand it when I saw that awesome LIGHTED globe you can see in the photo below, and it was only $20. I mailed it back to Nebraska for her. I was surprised .. shipping was only $11 It looks so amazing lit!!
This was my view from the Plane.
I loved getting to see everyone, but always feels good to get home and see the fam and the pups. Now I'm digging through the mountain of laundry as a unpack. Old Mother Hubbards Cupboards are bare, so tomorrow will have to be grocery day for sure.
My pups were happy to see me, and are sticking pretty darn close to my side.
Sending love and huge thanks to my Canada friends who are more like family to me.
I always miss them when I leave because I know it will be a while before I see them again.
I hope you have all had a great week! I'll be back with more photos to share in my next post.
Thanks friends for stopping by!
