Can we SQUEEZE just one more thing?

moving car

Granted, I have a truck and it is filled with really lovely things. But this image made me laugh because Andrea and I are feeling a bit like this regarding the amount of beauty that we have packed up for the Metis Linens kickoff  occurring this Sunday, October 10, 2010 at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

I don’t think anyone can get any luckier than 10~10~10.

We will have price points to fit everyone’s budgets.

Skeleton keys~ spooktacularly bootiful!

Lovely letters.


Dried organic lavender from France.

For those who live far away, over at the Metis Linens blog, we are having a sale on darling zinc tags and garlands. They are perfect for stringing up outdoors as they won’t corrode or rust.


I am so excited for the chance to meet all of you that are coming to Rose Bowl. I’m off to pack.

Good luck and wish I could go there! This picture makes me laugh and reminded me of when my mother moved herself from Texas to Missouri. It looked like the Beverly Hillbillies!!

Sounds like fun!

The first image reminds me of a few junking trips J and I have done. We came back from southwest Missouri with a tiny rocking chair, strapped upright, to the trunk of our car. That was about 25 years ago and the little chair still sits in our hearth room. We sure had a lot of looks as we drove along I-44!
