Old Clip Boards...

More projects completed for the shop!
I'm trying to stay motivated
& productive as I awake
from my winter hibernation! 
These old guys were fun & easy 
to do. I wanted some of the old board 
to show so I only took the paper to the
 edge of the clip and left about 3/8" 
around the edge of the board.  

I used a little distressing ink & stickers 
on some... and they are complete.
Use for a note pad for daily lists or
use with a photo of someone you love! 
This way you can change out photos 
easily & often! 

Ahhh... s-t-r-e-t-c-h... yawn...
"Is it Spring yet"?

"Soon old bear... soon!"

SPRING... has to get here sooner or later!
 I finally have gotten some motivation
to do some Spring projects! 

...old bottles embellished & ready 
for Spring flowers

...more bottles showin' a little love! try at painting on water color paper
I will mount it in a chippy old window frame.

I hope Spring will be comin' your way soon!
If it's already arrived, please send some 
warm sunshine to Nebraska!

Can't wait to snuggle up with a 
cup of tea and browse the magazine.
It is going to be fun knowing 
I've met some of these "junkin" folks!

Please "Bear" With Us!

We are still trying to figure out our 2010 plans for 

The Whistle Stop! 

Between frozen, broken pipes and 

our winter wonderland of 

snowy weather we are behind in getting the shop 

undressed from the Holidays! 

Most of our little kitchen had to be torn apart,

 re-plumbed, new drywall put up and then 

primed and  painted (painted several times)!

  I had planned on a little Valentine show and 

had ordered a few things but, Valentines day is

 Sunday and the shop is still not 

feelin’ the LOVE

It’s feelin’ the “MESS”

        We are still toying with the idea of being 

open every Saturday! ???? 

Just this time of year with our cold, Cold, COLD 

temperatures it’s been impossible to work 

in the garage on furniture and such. 

I have no excuses for not working in the 

craft room though...

 except maybe the “winter blues”!  

          We will let you all know soon of our 

plans for the little bit of a country store... 


 Bear says, “Winter is for Hibernating!” 

I knew I liked him for more 

than his good looks! He’s insightful too! 

  Thanks all for your patience!

Just Waiting Patiently!

I keep checking every store I go to... 
and it's not there yet!
I can't wait to sit with a cup of tea 
 and browse the new
Flea Market Magazine. 
I've met several of the "STARS" that are 
pictured or have articles in the magazine 
so it will be even more exciting to read!  
A good friend of mine, Cammie from
Daffadowndilly's provided many of the 
old & wonderful junk that is pictured and 
used in many of the projects in the publication! 
It's due out the 23rd but, I've heard rumors 
of it possibly hitting news stands early.
If  you're a "magazine aholic" like me...
keep your eyes open for
Flea Market Style!
It should be a good one!
