Garage Sale

My daughters and their good friends have been planning to have a garage sale for an entire YEAR.  They sorted through toy boxes, closets, and drawers and priced up a bunch of their toys to sell.

Preparing for the sale was a lot of work for us parents, but it motivated me to get rid a bunch of stuff, too.  So, we picked the same date as our citywide garage sales, made some signs, and set up shop.

 Look at how busy we were.... I think our dog, Brady, sleeping in the middle of the sale was a perfect comment to how it went.

Turns out, we did sell a few larger items & furniture, but couldn't give a TV away.  Well, actually, we DID give a TV away... to the neighbor kid.  Everything left over got loaded up and delivered to Goodwill and the kids were pleased with a little extra cash in their pockets.

And Brady was pretty tired from the excitement!

I love going to garage sale and was able to find a few treasures myself.  Stay tuned to see what I end up doing to these....
 A lightweight set of drawers with decals...

 And two solid wood nightstands.  Everyone has a place for these!
Thanks for visiting!

SummerFair 2011

 I had the pleasure of participating in Summerfair this past weekend located at Coney Island in Cincinnati.  I have never been a vendor at that show before so it was hard to know what to expect.

The crowd was pretty good, but it was so darn hot!

 I painted extra furniture pieces and sort of neglected my Christmas ornament inventory.  See my tiny tree display?  So, guess what I sold out of.....Christmas ornaments!  Darn, if only I had stayed up later, painting a few more spoons and keys! 


So, those of you who are interested, I still have the following pieces of furniture up for grabs!

I do not have another art show planned until October, so I am looking into options to display my work until then.  But that gives me a lot of time to come up with new projects and ideas!  You can find my smaller painted items in my esty shop,   Thanks for looking and keep stopping back!
