I was asked by one of my blog buddies, Laura from Finding Home, to join a "10 minute" challenge each month along with some other awesome bloggers.  I tend to take on projects that are more involved..refinishing, painting, upholstering, etc., so I like the idea of pinning myself down each month to do something simple and quick. The theme for this month is "10 minute craft". As soon as I saw  (read more …)

Lucketts was a whole new ballgame this year.  Not only was it extended to three days, with a VIP day on Friday, but the hours were longer.  As I was preparing, I knew I needed to fill my booth like I never had before, so it wouldn't look pathetic on Saturday after the Friday shoppers hit it.  So, my preparations were more focused and intense than they had ever been. It all started back in March  (read more …)

Let me start off by saying that I have never been a gardener.  I would look with envy at beautiful yards, edged, green, blossoming, arranged in wild perfection.  I never "got" gardening.  It was too unpredictable and high maintenance and required too much patience for me. When you drove up to our house, it was pretty evident that we were "inside people" and I always felt like I needed to preface  (read more …)

We took the opportunity when we were at Lucketts to film a Design Ramblings "on location". It was a little distracting, but it was really fun.  We had people waving and making comments from behind the camera and the band started playing...  I think we got some good information in there, though! I think the biggest thing Kriste and I tried to communicate amid the distracting environment, was  (read more …)

Hello, all!  If you've been following along, you know I've been up to my neck in all things Lucketts.  I'm finally started to dig myself out and it's right onto the next thing.  I usually don't have so many things stacked up in a row, but it's just a busy time.  Once I make it through June 11, I have a pretty open calendar and will schedule a few rest days.  Until then, it's onward!  Since I  (read more …)

I shared a few of my Lucketts finds yesterday and thought I would share the other two today. So, it's Sunday afternoon at the market and things are a little slow.  I had spent most of the day rearranging furniture as things sold and as sprinkles came and went.  The rest of the time, I was hanging out in a folding chair or behind the counter.  I finally wanted to take a stroll around with some  (read more …)

Lucketts Finds 2015

Between the heat and humidity, bruises and goose-eggs from moving furniture, early mornings, and take-out and fair food, my body was crying out for rest, healthy food and a bit of pampering.  I'm finally starting to feel a bit more like myself this afternoon.  I slept in, spent the morning unapologetically binge-watching Masterpiece Classics, ate mixed veggies and baked chicken for dinner and even  (read more …)

Today would've been my day to finally crash, but we had to attend a training about nutrition and pump insulin therapy for my son with type 1 diabetes.  We have been on a waiting list for this for months, so I didn't want to reschedule.  I knew I would be toast and I was, but it was worth pushing through for one more day. Tomorrow I'm going to sleep in, watch TV and have a much-needed lazy day.  I  (read more …)
