While my aunts been here... I've managed to do a bit of shopping. Well, really window shopping.

This little store we found in Battle Creek, Mi. You wouldn't believe the jems he had sitting around. They were over priced for what I'm used to paying or like to pay, but hey! he's in it for the bottom line. I'm in it to create and feed my addiction to re-purposing.

This dresser was priced above $600. *moving on*

Hutch $1500

Crosby radio sporting missing knobs, missing back, water damaged covered by the junk on top $150

None working Radio with missing backing $350

Broken lunch box with replaced handled $10 the painted one on the back $25

Look at the sea of vintage furniture. Gosh I sure hope this place doesn't catch on fire or flood because although he is over priced... some of his pieces are beautiful.

I'm Alive!!

OMW! I miss blogging...

It's been hella busy these last 2 months and for the first time I'm looking forward to the holidays when hopefully things will calm down *I lie to myself often* =D

My aunt is visiting from the Dominican Rep. and I gotta tell you, between my mom, the boys, kung fu, swimming, clarinet, horseback riding, house work, work, traveling and my aunt visiting, I feel tired by the end of the night and as though I have nothing to give.

My mom is so happy to be with her sister. My aunt needed my mom and my mom has needed her. In the last yr. and a half my aunt has lost her husband, daughter, mother and sister. It's been a taxing yr. for her. My mother lost her mother, sister, mother in law, niece and brother in law.

But none the less, they are cute together. Now I know why my brother and I have such a bond. It's a learned trait folks! They walk everyday; no exceptions. They cook, pray, cry, shop, clean, excersise, read and sit in silence together.

I've become more aware of "siblings bond". It's a blessing to be in the company of someone that knows you all your life that is delighted in your presence and loves you full heartly.

Please call, email, text or mail your sibling a few words telling them how much you've enjoyed knowing them and how much richer your life is for having them be a part of your life!

Blessings to all!

1 John 4:21 
And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.


Thank you for visiting!!

Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)
