Estate Sale Haul~ Fill a Box

My daughter and I went to an Estate Sale last weekend. When we walked in, they said to fill a box and we will name a price. Although Estate Sales can be sad to go into homes of loved ones lost, this one they had moved everything into a church building. She seemed like a whimsical person, she had a stage to give puppet shows, how fun that must have been. So today’s video is about what I filled my box with, I always look for journaling, decorating, and happy mail items and found a few.

Thanks for watching and stay sparkly, Rebecca

Show-N-Tell: Autumn Rainbow Retreat Projects and FUN

I wanted to have a little Show-N-Tell of the Crafty Projects at the Autumn Rainbow Retreat. It was such a fun and relaxing weekend. It was like slumber party! We crafted the day and night away, went shopping at Dollar Tree, Walmart, and a couple of downtown shops. We went to Anderson Office Supplies/ Stationery shop and Metcalf Sisters antique shop. So fun!!
