Load 'em up!

 It finally happened...we have us a "good junkin" trailer!
Why of course... I had to push him out the door and say "don't come back unless that trailer is on the back of the truck!" iT's just so hard without one, and I'm tired of HARD! OuR First show is the Fleattitude market april 26th in Pleasant Grove...it will be like a big Treasure hunt when you shop it. FBook friend them and www.fleattitude.com  iF YOU COME at 8:00 a.m. it's first pickin's but it's good buying all day till 4:00...there is such a variety. 

My husband is magic at loading this trailer...wow, he has put tons in it...now we can load the back of the truck with more! We'll probably have to put garden things outside Fleattitude on the grass.
Grab tag and bring it to us for payment.

Ocean blue's... and they are HAPPY!












This week I've been playing with my BLUE'S from sweet pickin's milk paint, aren't they pretty. I will try to open up the shopette  April 18th & 19th the weekend BEFORE fleattitude. I will leave many items unpacked so that you may have first pick's.

Ocean blues...I have a friend, Peggy, of many years who has been fbooking herself in Hawaii this week, she is a widow unfortunatly to early and bravely travels with family and friends. Who knows where Joni might be, she sometimes wanders off to visit the Ocean too with her daughter. 

Then there is Betty (buttons) Whitlock...she called from there today, I finally got homesick for Just a bed of roses shop. Betty came weekly and we just kept up on everything. Those of you who know her will know what I'm talking about.

I'll catch you up...her and Woody in their early 80's ventured off to live in San Diego on Christmas day! Betty said they are SO HAPPY! They were planning going to Coronado island for a day, ride a bicycle for two and visit my friend Nancys shop "the attic." They are living without alot of "stuff" and enjoying it (you know Betty LOVES STUFF), eating tangelos off their tree, and surrounded with beautiful flowers and succulents. They love church, she is taking organ lessons and wants to play for the singles ward. She takes painting lessons from someone she met at church too. She wants to get off her walking stick, thus...a personal trainer, which is hard and painful & Betty can do it! 

They eat out alot, enjoy visiting and playing games at her daughters, misses her Farmington friends. I should have talked to Woody...bet he still runs everyday, knowing him he will find the marathons and friends. They generously share their antique home with family members while they live away.

I reminded her we are Freezing here, are we not!

My parents, same age, this week my son and I go for a visit, I suggested we eat out this time (I usually take them healthy food)...my dad wanted a BIG hamburger and onion rings and my mother wanted to eat RIGHT THERE AT HER TABLE, same ole, same ole, she enjoys the pattern lifestyle.She lost...we get them OUT of the house! My dads health...he is getting weaker, but he keeps on going, but slowly. SLOW like I am on the treadmill, I joined lady fitness this week...my word for the year BALANCE was needing some exercising in it! Be careful the words we chose!

 It makes me really appreciate the Whitlocks new lifestyle choices and they are enjoying health.

as Betty said...THEY ARE HAPPY!

I'll speak from all of us "we are HAPPY FOR YOU TWO!"

When was the last time you were here?

 Lava Hot springs, Idaho...open all year except thanksgiving and Christmas day.  www.lavahotsprings.com

The pool furthest to the east is the hottest...112, yikes! The water runs under the sidewalks and dressing rooms making them toasty warm, no more freezing. The other temps a toasty 102 degrees.

Heaven & angels sings when your up to your chin in this pool! Rocks line the sides with tiny round rocks on the bottom, if you have sensitive feet wear sandals. 2.5 million gals of hot mineral spring water flows through here per day. They do not treat this water with chemicals. No smells. 



 Lava has been updated since we were last there...Looking to the furthest west is now a large mineral spring water pool the temperature of a perfect bathtub that doesn't cool down.

Makes you want to stay. relax. soak in the sunshine. forget your troubles and your aches and pains. Which I had plenty of those just coming off of the vintage whites market and nursing an annoying headcold.

   There should be a sign on the entrance...leave your problems at the door.(heard a few people venting some dumb problems...I called it "disturbing the peace"). There is plenty of room to just simply move away.  The mountains are ugly from winter, but soon will be dripping with greens. 

If it seems you could be the only ones there...I was told that bus loads could pull up, just warning you! Reservations would be necessary for the hotels/motels...not the springs.(I would not suggest tumbling waters motel across the road).


 Need to wring out your suit?


 You can take food in just nothing in glass.


 Home Hotel since 1912...has had a make-over, much needed!
www.homehotel.com for all information.  Right next door to the pools. If you have a favorite place there, would love to know about it. The double bathtubs have the mineral water flowing into them also...what a bonus! 


Carl said run in and see if the old rockers are still there from 30 years ago...sure enough! Just had to tell the receptionist my NEED ICE STORY. 30 years ago we ran down to the lobby and asked where the ice machine was...the little old man and lady were so cute and accommodating...she quietly walked to her refrigerator and brought out her ice cube tray and put them in a baggie! We could never forget that one!

We made a quick vow that we would not wait 10 more years to go back. We love our new semi-freedom!

p.s...if your worried about being "too fat, too white, too many vericose veins showing, too gray, too wrinkly, in  need of a new swimsuit...don't be, there is plenty of competition in these catagories. On the other hand...it's a bit romantic with newlyweds & youth & don't be offended when suits don't meet your personal standards...it's okay, it's okay (think I heard those words on the bachelor?).

Maddox in Perry is always delicious when traveling that direction.

Vintage Temptations coming soon

Loading up now...the equivelent of 5 truck fulls  (between 3 of us) will fill our whole space 10 x 30 with one of a kinds with ALL THINGS VINTAGE! Today we loaded our 2nd truck...we made enough things for a week long sale, sad to leave so much behind, but that means we will be selling AGAIN in the near future.

I am starting to whine for a small trailer to haul our things...wish me luck. If not I may be tempted to just end all this traveling around!  

If I can get photo's during set up I will and share here...it's a BIG day, so no promise.

few reminders...Most vendors like cash, its just faster and MOST are not set up with visa. You don't want to be caught short on cash, we always take more $$$ than we think we need because you never know what you can't live without. There are 2 atm's...just in case! 

We have sold tags, we will try to hold (MUST be paid for) what we can so you can continue to shop.  When I shop, I go through quickly scanning and buying what I mostly want and then I go back for what I missed. Others are less aggressive and take their time to shop. Just know that someone right behind you may want an item your thinking on, so don't think too long!

When you buy...IT'S FINAL, we will not take anything back.
.
It's a ONE day sale! Pricing is reasonable. Our prices will have TAX INCLUDED in the price. 

There will be plenty of merchandise for all day at the vintage whites, it runs till 5. Tea and classes are upstairs along with more vendors. (high tea needs reservations).

Parking fee is required at parking lot.

If you go early, then your closer to your vehicle for loading up multiple times and it never hurts to bring a partner to load while you continue to shop. You can always come back later to pick up your goods as long as its before 5.

We will NOT have manpower to help you out and we will be busy with customers...there is suppose to be a moving company to help with your larger purchases for loading.   

Coming with friends or alone...just plan on having a great time to be inspired by all things vintage and remember it's not flattery to any vendor to copy, please be respectful!

Awareness is a blessing

One of the most popular Dr.'s in Utah is the communication and relationship expert Dr. Matt Townsend @matttownsend.com

We signed up for this: my life changer
Everyday Matt sends you a video to watch/listen then you complete question assignments. That way it is custom fit to YOUR life.

Ours started this morning (so excited for this!)

Matt came on and talked about the principle of awareness. Then we could rate ourselves. Was asked has your life been enriched by others that live the principle of awareness? When and where has your life been blessed when you live the principle of awareness? Whats the most important thing you can do today to live the law of awareness?

and that's how each day will go...for only 5.99 a month you get an everyday life changer lesson.

My husband and I tried today to be more "in the moment" to be there, to respond, to savour, enjoy, take in, be a part of it and NOT in the FUTURE...oh to not be in the future is a tough one for me. My brain is trained to always be planning the next day/month/holiday/event.

We really enjoyed our gray rainy day...he enjoyed having lunch with his old work buddies, we even enjoyed the power going out a few hours (power nap) and listening to the rain.

Just wanted to share...you'll find everything A+ that's available on his .com site.

Enjoy awareness!

We can help if your suffering from "gardenitis" at the vintage whites market







Preparing for Vintage white market...weathered patina vintage projects (just a few). Bedsprings have been cut in half, now TWO people can enjoy owning them!

Clamps...oh my, my husband is an overachiever when I say something needs glued...out come the gigantic clamps for just the littlest piece to be fixed! Three wheel cart oozes with patina, all original colors.

Are you amazed at the trellis with real vines...I mean, how could we cut them out, it would be just wrong!

If you have vintage "garden-itis"...we can cure that when you shop our Pic-patina booth at Vintage whites March 8th. Promise there is SO MUCH MORE...just don't want to spoil it by showing too much.
