I'm Back

A big HELLO to everyone! I'm BACK!!!!

Vacation was great. We came back with a loaded cargo van, full of furniture and many smalls...unfortunately, we left our camera charger in our hotel room, and of course the camera all of our pictures in the camera I am unable to download. Bob is going to buy a new charger tomorrow, so for now I am going through blogger withdrawals...Bob says I am obsessed with blogging now anyway. He caught me reading my followers list one day last week...LOL

Well hopefully everyone went over to Judy's blog at The Spice Cupboard at the Cinnamon Creek and saw what my secret giveaway was that she won. If not, please visit her for pics.

Judy won a bowl filled with my strawberries. ( I forgot I had this pic still in my computer)
The bowl Judy received was much older, plus I also added some pink strawberries,
and something else, so check out her blog.

Tomorrow, I will post for my new long as Bob remembers to buy the battery charger.

So what did we get??? Well, since I cannot post pics, I will tell you a few things we were able to find for our store.

A huge stenciled tobacco rack, a firkin, betty lamp, full size carved Victorian bed, an 1800's butter churn, wood trencher with metal patches, and a wood washboard to name just a few.

We were so busy on our vacation, that we forgot about the world coming to an end on Saturday it was a good thing it did I would not be able to blog to you all anymore.

I was also so oblivious to the outside world, that I just found out about the folks in Joplin, MO. My thoughts and prayers truly go out to everyone who lost family and friends in that tragic tornado.  

We came back late Saturday night and we both worked the store starting at 6 in the morning to add all of our new goodies before we opened, and put in a 12 hour day. One of my blogging friends Terri dropped by from Chocolates for Breakfast, and we chatted for a bit. Terri, you have to let me know how AJ's is a restaurant along the river by us that has an outdoor patio.

Well, I don't want to bore everyone with no pictures, so I will close for now...but I am happy to being back to blogging!!!

Take care everyone


  1. Glad you had a great vacation. Sounds like you found lots of treasures. Can't wait to see pictures. Sorry about the camera charger. We did that with our cell phone charger one time. At least it can be replaced. Glad you are back to blogging and all is well with you. Have a great evening.

  2. Welcome back! Missed ya! Wow...can't wait to see got almost everything on my list...betty lamp, firkin, trencher, butter churn, tobacco rack...holy cats. I don't think I told you to get the bed, though, did I??? ;o) Sounds like a very fruitful trip. Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs, Robin

  3. Hey Janice! Great seeing you on Sunday. I love the way you have the front of the shop set up and can't wait to come see all your new treasures!

    I left you a note on your previous post about AJ's. Rob and I went there and had a great lunch, sat outside in the sun (all the umbrellas were taken), got a little sunburn, drank a couple of beers, had a fabulous hamburger and even posted a couple of pics to facebook. We'll definitely go back. Thanks!!!
