I have been busy hitting some fun sales, as well as some of my favorite thrift haunts. I already have a garage full of big stuff, so I shouldn't be buying too many more big things, but I just couldn't say no to this beautiful shabby white trunk. It was perfect! All my new treasures will look so great in her. And I do have alot of new treasures to share. I have been looking for an old typewriter too. Sometimes I just wish I could find something, and there it is! Typewriters are another great display piece that I love. So many loves......and I can't keep it all. Some of this has already made its way to my space at Uncovered Ruby. What's in your trunk?

Well, I met up with that higher intelligent life of computers.... and that would be my hubby. He always seems to come to my rescue! We managed to get a few pictures on the blog, but there must be a faster way. As my mom said when I was a little girl taking piano lessons, practice, practice, practice! So, I will continue to practice this new blog aventure, and hopefully I can get better in the process. I guess this will definetly help me learn some new computer skills, which I am really lacking. I know that is why I have been putting off starting a blog for so long......afraid to try something new. For now, I'm just taking small baby steps.
The reason I started this blog is because I wanted to share "all my shabby passions". I grew up on a dairy farm here in Battle Ground. Who knew that the buckets I used to feed the baby calves with would someday be in my shabby decor? Maybe, that's why I love the "shabby look" so much, because it is all wonderful and familiar to me. I think I had the best childhood a girl could ever ask for....

Hi!, and welcome to my new blog! I have been blabbing for a year now, that I was gonna start a blog. Then the new year came, and it was a no brainer, what my new year's resolution should be! It's already February, and time to get the blog show on the road! As you can see (actually, you can't see nothing yet), I have'nt figured out the picture thing! So, stay tuned please! I am waiting for a higher computer intelligent life to help me with all the minor details.
