A Chapter Is Over

I am one of millions who watched
Oprah
for 25 years !
What a beautiful lady
inside and out.
I remember this hair.
And these eyes!
And this excitement !
And the tears.
I was one of many who
laughed with her , cried with
her, was inspired and
enlightened by her
in so many ways.
Thank you for 25
years Oprah !

Blogerette Sorority Rush

Today is the big "Bloggerette Sorority Rush" !
Our task was to create something
using the Sorority photo. I created this
treasures box and it's
filled with trims , findings,
and what nots.

The second part of our task was to

share a little bit about ourselves.

So ....... My name is Sue. I love

my home,my garden, my hubby,

my pets. I have many dollhouses &

love dollhouse miniatures. I have a

love for old dolls, especially the

ones nobody else wants.

I love my own space where

I do collage art.

I love tag sales, estate sales,

flea markets & junque stores.

I love the thrill of the hunt.

I have my own little shop where

I sell a mixture of old and new.

I'm so happy that I started blogging

a few years back because I've

met so many nice ladies & my world

has been opened up and inspired

by all of you.

I'm happy to be a new member

of the Bloggerette Sorority !

My MAY Visit To Brimfield Flea Market

Here are some Brimfield photos for
all of you who are unable to
visit this 3 times a year
flea market.
I believe it's the biggest flea
market in the United States.
I happen to live about
10 minutes away so I
get to visit each and
every show if I want.
What a small world it is
even though there were
thousands who came from
all different parts of the
country and different countries
of the world !
I made my rounds by
myself for about 2 hours
before going to work &
opening my own shop
for the day.
Before I left I just had to
get a famous
Pilgrim Sandwich
to take with me.
( It's a must have now for me )

Anyways ..... While standing in line I

recognise a blogger friend that I've

met only once standing just 2 people

in front of me in line at the

Pilgrim Sandwich hut.

This is her awesome tent above .

( the one with the sign that says

guillotine rides )

Tricia and her husband spend many

months traveling around the

country to many different shows.

I just found it neat that I would find her

so easily in the crowd.

Visit Tricia at

I've never met these two
before, they look like it's
just not their thing .
I always love looking at this huge
display of garden statuary.
I think I need one of everything in my
" Tranquil Garden "
Love her ! Just an array of really neat finds. Cute Above is my sandwich spot ! I love this lady in the long skirt carrying her baskets. If she is looking at those pillows, I too thought they were pretty but very over priced. This dolly in the pram was cute.
Relaxing setting here, the
colors were very pretty.
Now it was way too cold
out for this topless
lady !
She was ignoring me.
And especially cold for
this bathing beauty!
Huh ????
This is me leaving.... lol .
