Cest Tres Belle

This past weekend I ran into this estate sale that was in my area. Sometimes estate sales can be very depressing especially when you enter someones home and everything is in a disaray like this home. This woman had been an antique dealer and did not want to deal. She knew how much her stuff cost and wanted her rightfull money. This is one of the beauties that I found. She had others and now I regret not buying the bridesmaid with the blue dress as well. She had a bunch of great stuff all over the place, but it would have to stay behind since it was very highly priced.

I found this beautiful piece of sleeve last year at the flea. it was only a piece. Would of loved to see if it came from a dress or a shirt. Does not matter though it's still beautiful.

to celebrate the new blog name I made this little dress. I am ready to start wearing some skirts. I am not a dress wearer, but I love me some skirts and some cute shoes to go along with them.

hats and life stuff

well v-day is almost over and now it's time to start looking towards the next day off or holiday. i wanted to share with you the vintage millinery hats i was lucky enough to get this past weekend. They are truly cute.

the weather was actually nice today and I am ready for spring to come. the flea is calling my name. they are predicting snow this weekend. if it doesn't show up i will be on my way to my local flea. i have the itch bad. i might be addicted to the thrill of the hunt.

another thing that is pending is my move back to Chicago..... if GOD decides that this is the best for us we will be leaving MO soon to go back home. I am so used to living here now and I know I will miss it, but with my parents getting older I believe it's time to move back.

should we stay or should we go? such a hard decision. I will be happy if I stay, but I will also be happy to go home. home won't be in Chicago it will be in suburbia.... I am not a city girl anymore. I enjoy the suburbs. 11 years ago I would never had said that. things change I suppose.

will keep you udpated....... xoxoxoxoxo Just ME

I am so excited and wanted to share with you that I finally got the guts to make postcards of some of my pictures I have on my blog. I AM TRULY EXCITED.... They came out wonderful.

Linda Harre any advice on how to try and sell them?

JLO thanks for always believing in me!

Now do I have the guts to sell them and would they sell at $3.50??????

Any advice would be wonderfully accepted.

Thank you,

Auction Update

I attended a local auction Saturday. At first I debated if I should go, I have a bad habit of doing that. I get all excited and then at the last minute sometimes decide well maybe not. I am so happy I went. It was a great time. I didn't get to win that many things because there were some pretty hardcore bidders there. There were a couple of people that were bidding for the same things I wanted. I was outbid a couple of times. This is one of the old valentiens that I did win. There was this wonderful old scrapbook full of vintage valetine postcards... truly a treasure, but there were these two ladies that really wanted it... The scrapbook went for $50.00 and actually I only had $50.00 on me and there was lunch to buy and other great things to purchase so the ladies won it. They also won another hanful of postcards and then they also were bidding on another set, but they were outbid by a gentlemen that was interested in all things paper. I did get some milk glass and a few milinery hats that I will take pictures of soon. I won this great pink shabby round table and only got it for $2.50..... yes $2.50, but that is because there were no women out on the patio and the men did not seem to want a distressed pink table so I was the lucky winner...... all in all, fun was had and that's okay you can't win them all right?

There is always a next time!

Which one is my favorite... Not sure

Here are a few more pictures that I took over the weekend. I think I like them all so I did not know which one to choose. I'm thinking these would be great cards and post cards as well. If the ones that come back from Flickr come out good then these will become postcards to.....

Just Me,

just when I thought the weather was going to start getting warmer we got hit with snow. That's okay because I did not have to go into work yesterday and I got to play with my camera and spend extra time with my boys.

Have a great day!
