my favorite shop display

Happy & Relaxing Sunday Friends!

I want to thank you all for your dear comments & congratulations on my 300th friend celebration & I have been secretly setting aside some of my 1st little treasures for my giveaway.

I have 2 little sweeties made by MOI, that can go in a book & save your place...

I have 1 of my very 1st handmade jewelry line pieces made from vintage buttons...

I have 1 darling vintage fabric adornment with the most beautiful vintage button in the can be seen in 1 of these pictures, can you find it?

That's all you get to know for now though...more sneak peeks to come!

Yesterday I brought my new beau with me to the shop. We played & played & giggled with joy & then played a some more.

I must say to you with a tiny bit of shame, I haven't told my hubby about him yet...but how do you explain to the man you married, that you have a new love?

It's not as if I hide him...he's sitting on the couch right here next to me on this lovely Sunday morning. Hubby's running in & out excitedly getting our vintage trailer ready for next weekends 'Vintage Trailer Rally',
but that's a whole other post!

So, I guess I would have to say...they just haven't been formally introduced yet.
Is that terrible of me?
But, I do LOVE my new beau sooooo!

Just look at the amazing photograph's he takes of my shop 'Lambs & Ivy' & my very favoritest display!

I truly adore every little thing in it & on it & next to it!

OK, hubby just came in & is washing some things at the sink for the trailer...should I tell him now??? I'm scared, let's go for it. Right now. Here I go, wish me luck!

Oh, that wasn't bad...I'm a little rattled so I can't remember exactly what was said.
I said something like "I have to tell you about something", he's washing dishes.
He said something like "what"?
I said "I bought something, but I really needed it".
He said "what"?
I, with camera in hand said "this new camera that I had to have cuz I'm trying to sell my jewelry on etsy & I needed a better zoom to get some really good pictures".
He said "How much"?
I said with a big smile on my face "I got it on sale at Target & it was only $199.00 & I didn't buy another else like a camera bag or anything, just the camera".
Forgetting until right now that I got a bigger memory card to hold more pictures that was $38.00.
Him, "Where'd you get the money"?
Me, "It was shop money, I had a really good last couple of weeks".
Him, "Just remember, shop money is still OUR money, we don't divide it, it's all OUR money"!
Me, "I bought it with OUR money"!
Him, "OK then, I'm glad you got something you love so much. Maybe we can get some good pictures at the trailer show".
Me, "Oh yeah, this camera is awesome, we can get some GREAT pictures at the trailer show"!
A hug & off he goes outside to continue on his vintage trailer mission.
Isn't life GRAND!!!! :)

Hehehe... I've had a new boyfriend for about 6 months. I've to get my hands all over him as I'm busy with the critters (potty training) and summer fun. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the rusty, chippy & aged pieces you have. BEAUTIFUL. You make me want to do my home in tea washed, aged 'things'. I just may. Hugs and love Susie!! Tazzy

My new friend is almost 1 year old now. I have never regretted getting this new pal......also a fuji
I got a bargain too 196.00 including taxes!
I love that I can take good closeups even without using the micro mode!
Your display is awesome, I love the shabby primitive mix. No wonder it is your favorite!
Take care Susie!

I love the old clock case ~ I have the whole clock on my downstairs mantle. It was my mother's and I have the memories of it chiming on the hour (even the wee ones of the morning)!

Linda Robinson said...

Love your pictures... I just got a new camera about 6mo ago and I LOOOOVE it.. You are going to be so happy with your purchase.. It took me awhile to talk my hubby into it buying it and I am so glad I did! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Linda

Charlene said...

Sometimes you just have to put it to them in language they understand!!!! So glad you got your new camera & can't wait to see all the wonderful photos to come! We saw Diane & Allen last weekend & had such a blast visiting. I am hoping to join you still for Round Top. No trailer (new or vintage) but, I'll just be thrilled to be with my friends if it works out. HUGS!

What a nice guy! My husband is a very nice guy, too, but a big fretter about money...he frets for all of us ;-) I probably would have driven anyone to debt right now...debt through craft supplies!

I can't see your other secrets, though, as hard as I look! Kind of like Where's Waldo for the arty set!


Lynn Stevens said...

Great pictures with your new Beau and I just had to follow you after reading your darling post!
