She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

I'll Be Back

All most everyday I think about doing a blog, there is so much I want to blog about.


Like some of the auctions I've been to, the people I meet, whats going on in my booth space, some cool furniture I have bought and painted,


the big snow we just had, my work and the deadline on the sales magazine I work for,


why one of my Christmas trees is still up...., oh I painted my kitchen cupboards....and so much more...were do I start.


from the beginning right, at this point I don't know where the beginning is...


So I'll start here to let you know - I'll be back!!
Just as soon as I meet the sales deadline on the magazine.

Front page, Valley Antiques & The Ravens

Bears bare Ravens allegiance
Fans looking forward to playoff game with Steelers
~
Two bears were spotted Friday on Baltimore Street in Funkstown rummaging for scraps of burger — Ben Roethlisberger that is.
.
The stuffed bears, dressed in Baltimore Ravens outfits, are how Valley Antiques and Uniques is showng its support for the Ravens when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers today in the second round of the NFL playoffs.
.
Valley Antiques and Uniques Manager Patty Owens said the bears are a way to have some fun celebrating the bitter rivalry."People drive by and have stopped and taken pictures of them," Owens said. "It's all in good fun. It's just to make people smile.
.
"The male bear is dressed in a Ravens hat and shirt, while the female bear is holding pompoms and wearing a sash that reads: "Do Not Enter. Ravens Fans Only.
"Valley Antiques and Uniques was one of the few businesses in Washington County that displayed its team spirit. Most of the storefronts were business as usual.
.
.
Vally Antiques Bears made the front page of the local paper!!
.
Love how Patty and Donna at Valley Antiques dress the Bears
they don't miss an opportunity to change the Bears outfits.
So glad they like the Ravens,
can't imagine if they would of put the
Bears in Stealers outfits,
I think I might have to move my booth out until after football season...
.
Way to show your purple spirit Valley Antiques!!
Go Ravens!!

Oh yea I also SOLD the table and chair set,

What A Glorious Mess

The Anticipation...
Christmas Morning

There is something about the mess that is left after all the gifts are open, for some reason I don't want it picked it up right a way.
I like the sound of the Christmas paper under foot as the kids walk through it.
To just sit back and look at it all, months of work spread out all over the floor.
What a glorious mess!
