the clouds are rollng in

was looking around for something to use for
white wednesday this week

and since they are in my way...i'm using these lovely white clouds that are surrounding me.


they are messing with the sunshine part of my staycation big time !


so i decided to take a hike early this morning.


ah...some queen annes lace just for kathleen



oh..just look at those fluffy white clouds rolling in



lots and lots of great trails here


hard to tell, but i kept running into deer hanging out on the paths....
too cool, but too fast for me..


clouds clouds go away
come again another day


it's very pretty here...
i'm just sayin'




not much chance of getting lost, they mark the paths pretty good, but.....

i had to try out my new compass ap just for fun !



just love my new toy !!!


how about this???
cant imagine it's not used...so this must all be one night's work

(click on the pic to see what i mean)

busy little spiders while we sleep !




best seat in the house

well...looks like the sun may decide to show it's face...so i'm outta here.........

dont forget to hop on over to the
faded charm blogspot

I couldnt come if I didnt bring work with me........

the leaves are already changing and starting to fall here

dont particularly like that.

I was looking for some sunshine this week

serenity.... solitude....sunshine...staycation

a person needs a place

to unfold their truths

and extract the humor*

i am spending this week in such a place

**

most some of you will think i have completely lost my mind now

while others will envy me

**

i am spending the week in a yurt **
(**a mongolian style tent-
not quite this cool but you get the idea)



at our local state park - keystone lake

**

alone

**

by myself

**

all....by myself

why i love a flea market

i always love a flea market..
big, small, near, far...

my truck brakes for just about
any flea market, anywhere, anytime

walking up to the site,
my heart starts to race,
the anticipation is such a rush !

what am i looking for???

a good read and a small fraction of the price


old furniture


anything that can be used for display in my booth

this great shelf unit folds flat and will fit in the bed of my truck

score !


things i can repurpose

these were part of a system for recording money owed
in an old store


they will be reused as a sort of bulliten board

**
numbers..cool, usefullness..double cool
antique...triple cool


i always find great old cotton flags for resale -
this one is immaculate !


old babies for resale


not sure what i will do with this cloche---
isnt that what it's called???

 all the blog girls rave about them !


here's an example of something i was not looking for,
but just love !!

old..very old little bowling pins....

they will look so cool on a window sill in the new abode !
10 wood and 10 colors


i always pick up silverware and silver goodies


adorable vintage typewriter
which i have already resold !



an old metal ruler which i will no doubt cut up for jewelry


another cute little typewriter for resale
my fav color.......


all this great stuff i got last weekend at the flea....

***

but...but...but...

this time i got the best bargain ever !!

***

i was not looking..but...


i came home with 7 boxes of vinyl plank wood look flooring
the good stuff...commercial grade


really looks like wood.but nicer on the feet

i plan to use it for the bathroom and bedroom
in the new house !

i came home. looked it up on the net.....

karndean - van gogh
cheapest price on sale $145.00 per box !

i paid..........wait for it.......

$30 for all 7 boxes !!!!
whooo hooo !!
whippeeee !!

7 boxes @ $145. = $1,015...
my price....$30....

hmmmm
maybe that's why i love a flea market !!
