Busy Days

It's been a hectic few weeks around here and I'm relieved to have a little break before my next show.  My desk is already lined up with bits and pieces of jewelry ideas and I still can't see the surface of the garage work bench.  I promised myself I'd get it all organized before bringing home more stuff, but you know how that goes.

First of all, I want to thank Linda from Charmed Victorian for this lovely Victorian style necklace.  I think she's so sweet holding her little bird's nest.  I was the winner of Linda's Spring Giveaway that also included the little silver angel coin and pretty note cards.

   So pretty!  Thank you Linda for your generosity. 

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday for the Lodi Antique Faire.  As promised, the wind died down over night and left us with a wonderful light breeze.  There were a few late afternoon wind gusts, but nothing strong enough to get stressed over. 

Say cheese.  My mother made me do it:-) 
Unfortunately, this was the only photo either of us had time to take.  The show didn't officially start until 8am, but the shoppers were out early, and by 7am I had already made dozens of sales.  Gotta love those early birds, but it sure does cut into my shopping time.  

Look what I spotted on one of my trips to the ladies room outhouse.....
It's in really bad shape which explains why it was still for sale so late in the day.  It's too dirty to come in the house, the carriage doesn't move, knobs are bent and cracked, and the keys jam, but I had to have it.  This is the second one I found in the last few days.

I didn't dare ask about the hair or what might have been living in it!

My next show is now less than three weeks away.  Yikes, only two more hunting weekends left and so many things to do.  It's all good!

    And your mother's idea is so cute :) I seldom see you in pictures here and I really appreciate it when you show some happy pictures.

  5. Wow--dozens of sales by 7 am?? I don't think I could have counted and made change that early!! That picture of you is so cute---you look way younger than your profile pic :-)

    Love that typewriter, especially how big the letters are on the keys. It's beautiful, hair (eekkghgh) and all.

  6. What beautiful wins Betsy. Love your new typewriter. I have one of these oldies too and it doesn't work but it is still really cool to display. Hope you are having a great week.


  7. Cute photo of you, love it!! Ah, drat, I missed out on the tyepwriter, LOL

    I am bummed I couldn't make it. I have been sick since Saturday. There was no way I could have driven to Lodi . . and I'm still sick . . . I hope I'm better by Sunday for under the freeway!!!!


  8. Love your "framed" picture! I think you should put it on your profile. Betsy is as Betsy does...8+)

  9. You look so cute! You've lost a lot of weight, haven't you? You look a lot thinner than your profile pic. I love your wonderful win and neat typewriter! Enjoy your week, my friend!

  10. Oh that's a beautiful win -- will have to check her out! Looks like it was a beautiful day for the show and that typewriter . . .yeah, it's a bit scary but I would have grabbed it too!

  11. Betsy,
    So happy you had a successful show.Not a surprise with all of your cool stuff.Great find love that old typewriter.

  12. I expect my house to look like yours sounds in a few days. My husband is out of town til Friday so I can leave my mess out, it drives him crazy!

    Wow, making sales at 7 at a show that opens a 8, I'd be a mess, I'm such a slow unpacker.

    And, can't believe you got all that stuff in the back of your truck! You ARE and excellent packer! I drive a Ford Expedition, would love to go bigger, no small sedan for me, no, I judge a vehicle by hauling capacity!
