Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween To Everyone

Trick or Treat, and Happy Halloween to everyone in Blogland and who visits!

Thanks for stopping into Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams. Where does the time go, and why does it go so fast sometimes too. The weather has changed, gotten cooler out, had rain, and of course unfortunately thrift shopping has slowed for me too. Time of year to get ready for holidays, and festivities. Putting the house back in order since we are not moving quite yet. Also, spending a little bit of time working with things I have at the house to repurpose, and upcycle too.

To see some of the items I have been doing you can visit my shop at Etsy for those items, and I also have been listing things at Ecrater too. Repurposed, upcycled, and some vintage collectibles too.

Hope that this finds everyone doing well, and ready for Halloween. Thinking of those on the east coast, and wishing them all well too. Hopefully things are ok for them over there who were all effected with hurricane Sandy.

Thanks for sharing your time with Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams everyone. Take care, and see you again soon.

Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Flea Markets, and Junking

Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Flea Markets, and Junking too! No matter what season we are into there is always some digging to be done, right?

Hello, and Welcome Back to Thrift Store Junkies everyone. Glad to have you stopping by to visit. You know, I sometimes dread fall. I so enjoy summers, and warmer weather so that I can do more thrifting, and junking. I enjoy having the warmer weather to create in, and being able to paint a lil more too. Sometimes when fall comes I get a lil bit dreary with it. I know I should feel good about it as many do, and many have those creative juices flowing again too. But, I just cannot feel alive with it as I can spring, and summer time. Oh, well, such is life, right?

So, what has everyone been up to? My schedules have been way off for quite some time now. Dealing with our car hubby got me last year, the service techs, the service manager, and now with GM. Finally someone believes me there is something wrong, and I have some mechanics who are having issues finding the problem they are hearing too. 

Hubby is back home, and has changed our plans of moving. I was looking forward to heading south, but he is in love with the house again from remodeling that has been done. So, when the hubs is home my schedule is way off again too. 

Things shall soon calm that I can work on my listings again, putting some things together, and then finding a way that I can still paint some small projects for during the winter months too. The house will calm, and I can then work on my long over due scrapbooking as well too. Table is set up in the spare room for this, scrapbook papers are there in reach, containers with embellishments need to be better organized, but that is also coming together as well. 

So, what have you been up to lately yourselves? Any Thrifting, or Junking? Would love to hear from you, and have you share a little bit with all of us too. Please know that you can.

Hey, thanks again for sharing your time with Thrift Store Junkies. Always glad to have you drop in, and make sure you say Hi so that I can come visit with you too. Take care, and see you again soon! Toodles..........
