Thank you!

Everyone made such sweet comments on Saturday's post!
Thank you!
I am now trying to recover from one of the busiest Saturday's
ever at the shop, plus my pillow and my neck have declared war on each other!
I have woken up with a stiff neck almost every day for the past week! And, after Jimmy V week and then a busy week at the shop with our new addition....
I am beat!

But my house is a mess! So I might be another day or two

before I start posting good stuff again! And I do have some good stuff coming!

See you all soon!!

Pink Saturday!

This weeks Pink Saturday is extra special!
We are celebrating and raising money for a special lady Colette!
You can go the to read more about her uplifting story!
Many of you know that my mom is battling breast cancer and has been for the last 10 years. And so far so good! That is not the uplifting part! Since finding out she has cancer, mom has lost a job, married off a daughter, had a grandbaby, lost her father, moved three times, gone through my dad being laid off shortly before retirement, had another grandchild, had a daughter go through a divorce, had the same daughter get married and have another grandchild, and opened her own antiques shop, then almost died with a slipped disk in her back! AND unless you know would not know she is sick! She does not let the cancer get her, she kicks cancer's butt and is an inspiration to all who know her! So go click on the Katillac Shacks link above and help other people get through this with a little something special done just for them, so they too can kick cancer's butt!

Pink Saturday!

I am not at home to visit you all for Pink Saturday this weekend!
I am out volunteering for the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic for Cancer Research!With my Daddy, FOR my Mommy!
With my "V" Family!
I have been a part of this organization for 17 years now and would not have it any other way, unless it was because we have BEATEN cancer! I do this for my family, for your family and for anyone and everyone who is affected by this damn disease! If you have a chance, click on the link above and see what we are about, but also visit Miss Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for other Pink Saturday posts!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Good Morning all you Pink Bloggers!
I have had such a busy week I have not had ANY time to blog!
I am hoping I am not jinxing myself by telling you all,
but maybe your good wishes, prayers, thoughts and
dreams will help this good news come true.
It is just a local NC wedding magazine,
but the person who is doing the photo shoot with tons of stuff from our shop,
SuzAnna's Antiques, saw one of
my necklaces and commissioned one for the photo shoot....
SO....keep your fingers crossed!! It will be similar to this onebut different since I never get the same pieces twice! But if any of you come across a find like these it for me!!!!

Or if you come across some enamel pins...get them for me too!

I wanna try this! You have to go look at her work! AMAZING!

Have a great weekend!!
