My Shop Update

I can't believe I've
already been open at
Trinkets & Treasures
for 3 months now !
Time sure flys when
you have so much
to do.

These are my beautiful flowers

that now greet you outside

of my shop door.

Everyone loves the colors.

Keeping up with the seasons I've
started putting out more garden
and beachy items.
I've been loving every minute
of creating my displays.
I have gotten so many
compliments on my shop
and already have repeat buyers.
Now when people come to
my shop for the first time they
stand in the entryway and say
"What a cute shop!"
That always makes me
feel great.
As you can see my shop is becoming
full to the brim with an assortment
of old and new.
Little surprises in every corner.
Some of my artwork thrown in too.
A little something for everyone!
I love my shop!

Remembering "Froggie"

Sadly I found out today that
my beloved " Froggie"
has passed away.
I know to some of you that he was only
a frog , but to me he was a wonderful
little friend who came to live with us
in my little " Tranquil Garden" &
then became part of my little family
in my special little world.
I used to go outside in the morning
each day and check on my pond &
fish but Froggie is the first one I
would look for. I looked
forward to each time I saw him
and seeing what he was up to.
He lived with us for 3 or 4 summers.
He was part of my garden family. He enjoyed his haven that we created for him. He was never afraid of me, he would just sit there staring at me and not moving while I talked to him. I do believe he liked my visits & was actually listening to me.
I'm glad I had something to contribute to make his life happier as he did mine. I will miss my dear little creature.

Brimfield Antique Show

I had a nice time today on
my day off despite the chilly &
drizzly weather.
I only live 5 minutes away
so I went to the Brimfield
Antique Show,
The 1st of 3 shows this year.
I didn't take any pictures there but
I did take pictures of the
little goodies I picked up today.
I love the 3 rusty hanging
baskets,they will go in my
shop along with these 2
black crows.
A little frog ring in silver &
marcasite. A trinket for
myself.
Some neat old unique
pieces of hardware will also
go into my shop.
And some cool type print blocks
were a little gift for hubby.
I had a delicious turkey salad
sandwich & bottle of rootbeer
for lunch at The Apple Barn
restaurant in Brimfield.
I also couldn't resist taking
these yummy cranberry
orange muffins home for the
morning.
Such a nice relaxing day !

I think I heard a " Who ".
Love my new ladder.
My Saturday find of
the week for $3.00!
Very Prim looking too.
Some neat old rusty finds.
Can you believe this sweet
little concrete cherub was
in a free pile on the side of
the road?
She's perfect!
