Helllllooooooooooooo!

Hello my long lost blogging friends...Oh! It was me who was lost??!!
Well, I hope you are enjoying your summer! I have been away for several reasons but I am back and will have many fun things to show you soon because I am getting ready for the Vintage Market Place at the Oaks.....

My poor mom was sick...so sick... She had a blood infection and it was very scary but she has bounced back tremendously, miraculously even....she is almost 81 and her health has been not great so she surprised everyone...even the doctors! (saying a little prayer of gratitude here...)


My best friend since diaper-hood came out from Texas with her hubby and daughter and we tromped around locally....the pictures below are from the grounds at the Wayfarer's Chapel in Palos Verdes, Ca...It is beautiful there....



We also went to the tidepools and collected shells and the Marine Mammal preserve and the Korean Friendship Bell.... fun...

I love having a friend that when you haven't seen her in months or years, there is no awkwardness...just happiness to be together again! We even snuck out onto our porches to chat whenever possible...I miss her already!


I have been hitting estate sales, garage sales and flea markets to find wonderful goodies for the Vintage marketplace. I am so excited to be a vendor there.....

Anyway...I am off to bed but I will be back very soon to start showing you my finds and some of my recent creations...


Goodnight! zzzzz..............karen.....................
