Does anyone remember the woman on project runway who could not stop making rosettes?

I've become her.

I love them, although I have no clue what I will do with them.

I also love this shelf.

I have never been more excited to pick out perfume or a necklace in the morning.

Lastly, I love the decorations Dalanna put up in our house.

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!

Purchase at Fred Flare

I find this adorable.

(Although I think I would need a sticky-note ring).

Stompin' Gwapes.

This Saturday we went to Shade Mountain Vineyards for their Annual Harvest Festival. We got to stomp on some gwapes, drink wine, and listen to live music on a beautiful autumn day. The Cabernet Franc was our favorite...although there many other wonderful varieties. If you ever have the chance, you must go here!

Shupp's Grove

This weekend was excellent. I ate well, I relaxed, I played, I was productive, and all in all I wish it wasn't over! Some highlights:

I ran out of ranch, which I ALWAYS dip my pizza in. So when I had already cooked my french bread pizza and found that the ranch was out, Dalanna came to my rescue and made homemade ranch. Don't even ask me what it is made out of, but it sure was good.

On Sunday, we ventured to Shupp's Grove to check out Crafty by Nature. We found likeclochework's stand and ooohed and ahhhed over her beautiful hats.
And then we bought them. Broke our budget for the entire day, but it was worth it! It didn't stop us from exploring the rows and rows of antiques and knick-knacks.

I bought about 4 yds. of a beauuuutiful fabric that I plan to craft into something this week. Stay tuned. And Dalanna, thank you for cooking for me this weekend! Your food amazes me and inspires me and makes me sleep well at night.

A Mistake in Napping

Dear Readers,
Sorry for the lack of excitement in my blog lately, things have just been agoin' on!

From the Gretna Art Show with my uncle...

To waiting for a tornado to strike...("waiting" keyword. It didn't.)
To planning a Bridal Shower, getting a promotion(!!!), and even a lovely Sunday Brunch...

Everything has been great lately, and of course that is why today had to be bad.

I guess my clutch went out on my car...Nick was driving to come pick me up from work and the clutch went to the floor. I had to call AAA, which by the way is very handy to have, and now my car is at Moe's waiting until Monday to be looked at. My Dad said that dad kind of thing that you already have figured out but he's just reminding you how annoying life can be, and says, "Well it's lucky you got that promotion". Right, like I want that extra money I'm going to be making, dying to have for fun things, to go right into paying for yet another dissappointing fix on my car. Boo.

So Moe (this mechanic who I never met) was incredibly nice and took me and Nick back to the farmhouse since the towtruck driver apparently is not allowed. Then we laid in bed and fell asleep for hours (me and Nick - not me and Moe), waking up around 11:30 pm. One of the only times in my life where I have felt that taking a nap was a mistake.

Nick was up building a model airplane, I've found some wonderful new blogs to read, and now we're going to watch Delicatessen. I'm pretty sure we'll both be up until at least 5 am.

At least it's the weekend!

My Friend Darcy

After a lovely "goodbye Monica breakfast" this morning, I got busy taking pictures of some clothing items for my shop. The craft fair I intended on being at all day today was canceled because of the rain (it was outdoors), so I decided if I'm ever going to sell anything I first and foremost need pictures! So needless to say, my dress form and I have been spending a lot of time together this afternoon. I had noticed her chest was looking a little, let's say "rigid" in photos...which is not normal for most of my customers I'm assuming. So I named her Darcy and then stuck a bra right on her boobies. It's done wonders for our relationship.

She's looking good, no?

Well I have much to update about, but I'm going to update my shop then possibly Sunday Funday it'll hear more from me later. Look for these new tops in the shop!

Sorry for the delay...

I was doing so good there, updating often and such,but life got pretty rough for a few days though, so I apologize. Back to normal now, as normal as it gets!

Monica, a dear friend and owner of fancy antler vintage, is moving to New York in only a few days. We celebrated her birthday not too long ago and we had a surprise photo shoot to take pictures she can remember us by....
Look how tall our corn is!!

In other news, me and Nick got haircuts from the lovely Gabrielle
I signed up for a craft fair, and omg it's this Sunday. How come I have to go to a real job all week instead of sweating my arse off by a sewing machine? Why why why why why whyyyy?

Weekend Fun

Since starting my new job, by far the biggest perk is having off for entire weekends. After years and years of being a server, I almost forgot what weekends off were like. Dalanna and I went out to the Lancaster Brewing Company for free food Friday. Happy hours are a wonderful thing but by 10 o'clock I was on the couch watching Roman Holiday and falling asleep. Nonetheless, still a very fun Friday for me.
Since I fell asleep so early, I also woke up early. 5:45 to be exact. I wandered around the house for awhile and watched This American Life episodes on Netflix. Then it was time for Saturday morning yard sales! I am so addicted.
These boys tried to talk me into buying a bun bun (only $19!) but really I just acted like I might buy one because I really really wanted to hold one. So cute. I did end up buying a flowery stamp set, a vintage dress and cardigan, Kill Bill, a six book craft series, and two framed pieces of artwork. I'm not sure I really needed any of that, but hey that's how yard sales go. Then home to my friends and family I went!
Saw the cutest little boys in the entire world...and had some Hibachi!

My brother is finally home from Europe and he dropped by with some very neat little gifts. I can't wait until my other European travelers arrive home safe and sound to me.

Yayyyyyy I got a new camera! I can't stop taking pictures, I've already took over 200 shots. It's addicting... So here's a few of my favorites from the past 3 hours that I've had my new toy.

Pepper...or maybe Salt?
On the way to the grocery store.
Don't make fun of how he walks.
On the way home.
Backyard beauty.
Played some music.
Recorded some music.
Shot some guns.
Played some more music.
Then played with the cat.

I haven't gotten much else done to say the least.
