My Giveaway Is Only A Few Days Away And My Booth Has Been Restocked

I went home to Spooner, WI last week, it was so relaxing and just plain awesome!!!! I got to spent the whole week with my oldest daughter Kara which I always enjoy with all my heart. But now I am back in Rapids, my youngest daughter Alyssa came for a weekend visit from college. We hit the hot spots here in Rapids (Goodwill, Thrift Stores) this morning and spent the rest of the day relaxing and baking cookies. Alyssa is such a joy...she keeps me young that's for sure....never a dull moment!!!!!

While I was home in Spooner, I re-stocked my booth at the "Red Door Antique Mall" with some more goodies. I have been selling a few things which is pretty good seeing it's winter and everything has slowed down quit a bit. But we expect to pick up sometime around March or April and I will be ready for business But until then, I will keep creating and thinking of new ways to make my booth warm and exciting.

Here I am in the heat of the battle. I had to make a mess before I could start seeing progress, it seems like it is always that way.

I was surprised that I found a spot for everything. When I started re-stocking I thought I would NEVER get it all in. I seriously was ready to put my hair out!!!!!

I found a few more pieces to my vintage casserole set. I LOVE vintage kitchen stuff!!! It is my second favorite collectible. My first of course being anything PRIMITIVE!!!!!

I also found some more mushroom cookie jars from the 70's, a cool covered butter dish and some more pieces to add to the pfaltzgraff dishes set.

Here is my booth finally took me all day!!!!!

I had to start sticking things under the bench...didn't have a choice. Oh well, at least it's there for the pickins.

My buttery cabinet is FULL!!!!

Here are a few of my handmade bunnies, I think they look cute sitting in the drawer.

A view from the isle....I was pretty happy with the out come but of course I could have tweaked and tweaked....I finally had to say enough already!!!!


I have really enjoyed reading all your comments and stories about what you like doing when you and your girlfriends get together. Thank you for sharing them with me, I loved each and everyone of them. I really believe God gave us girlfriends because sometimes men just do not understand girl stuff, I guess we all know there is total truth to that statement:)

A huge thank you to my daughter Alyssa for updating my blog header pictures for me...what would I ever do without you Liddy!!!!!! That was actually one of my Christmas presents from Alyssa this year. Three blog header updates with NO WHINNING....and she was true to her word...NOT ONE WHINE did I hear!!!! I still have 2 more coming WHINE free :) LOVE IT!!!!!

Another Christmas gift she had waiting for me was that she signed me up for a 5K race in LaCrosse Wisconsin on May 1st. I did not know whether to laugh or cry when I opened that baby up (shown above, you can click on the pic for a closer look), I have NEVER done a 5k I've said before, she keeps me young. And believe me, I am ever mindful that I have to start training for this or I will NEVER make it!!! I will keep you all updated on my training progress :)

Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog, I enjoy all your company so much!!!

God Bless.....Rhonda

I love hitting antique malls in the winter, that is a fun way to spend the day when it is cold outside. You have a lot of wonderful things in your booth and it is displayed so nicely.
