Antique chair, buggies & much more!

Wouldnt it be fun to take this beautiful antique lid oak and leather chair home to be rescued into a treasured heirloom? It's more dainty petite than normal for a mission oak chair, has a slight creek when rocked (I love that part!) and stuffed with the old horsehair. If I were to keep it (which I can't) I may be tempted to replace the torn part with an animal print which is the best
in home decor right now.
Okay, now pay attention here...this chair along with 2 big antique buggies, rusty bedsprings, wicker, retro chrome table, garden accessories and SO MUCH MORE will be available at Re-creations in Roy, Utah (about 5400S. and 1900 W on east side of road. I have rented space there to put overflow from our shop and our garage. We will be loading up this space on Tuesday April 1 (no joking) and I am making this comitment right now to do so as it is stormy freezing cold outside and I dont want to do it, this is why I am making this comittment out loud!
Vintage Furniture pieces in the shop are also marked down...
Our prices at Re-creations are below normal...YOU ALWAYS GET A GREAT DEAL there. You will want to check back often as vintage pieces come and go quickly. Also its a great place to consign your no longer needed furniture. Talk to Krista, she's fun to work with.

Here are 3 big baskets chuck FULL OV VINTAGE DISHES, plates, saucers, cups ,platters, bowls with other goodies tucked in for sale.
What is so great for you is that they are ONLY ONE DOLLAR EACH!!!
I would say that half are a little chippy and half aren't. Now some people love chippy plates and
some dont. I will be adding to these piles this month as I am doing some heavy duty cleaning in storage areas and pulling some off the floor. Only to make room for new shabby decor, yeah!
These bargains are set out in front of the shop among other marked down items and even new arrivals....drop in to check them out.
Vintage plates are so fun to stack, so who cares if they are chipped. They are also great to put your homemade goodies on and gift them. Are you a mosaic artist...these would work get out your hammer!
I'm SPRING there are marked down items in the shop too, if there is a piece of furniture you are interested in owning...LETS MAKE A DEAL... COME ON DOWN!

3 AMAZING WISHES for Sadie Huish

I found this blog this morning as it was on our news, it's about this most beautiful little girl in Utah that was diagnosed with a newly discovered inoperable brain cancer... her name is Sadie Huish, here is her blog: Be sure to get your kleenex out first.

She made 3 wishes and you can follow them on her blog with her family.

I really am at a loss for words at the daily problems seem so very small in comparison. Join me in praying and offering words of support to her beautiful family.

My mother was told a month ago that she has breast cancer...we are under the impression that it can easily be removed and its the best kind to have and even rated a zero as it is calcification in the duct. We are praying that when its removed they will not find anything worse. Appreciate prayers on her behalf also. Our family has not had to deal with the word Cancer so far so this is very new to us.
One thing I do know is that the Jon Hunstman Cancer Hospital is THE place to go when dealing with cancer. My mother hates dr.s & hospitals and LOVES the Hunstman center and her dr. there. This is a blessing in itself.

Sophie our sweet young "budding artist" brought these two beautiful pictures in she had made for the shop...she gave permission to have them placed on the front door. We are having 60 degrees here in Northern Utah for a few days, with snow on Thursday...we will take the sun anytime.
New items will be placed outside along with SALE items as I am cleaning out the back rooms the next two months & need space desperatly, check often for great deals.

Thank you Sophie and I hope you can bring in a Mothers Day picture come May 1st?

TOMATOES... growing in the Master Bath???

My husband thinks our Master bath is a greenhouse? Thought I better decorate this space for Easter since these cute sprouted tomatoes are thriving in their little egg carton just waiting for May to be planted until then I will deal with the dirt in the bathtub and just enjoy that spring is here now.
Yes, the bathroom accessories are PINK...the wooden piece going across the old claw foot bath tub is a very large Antique Cabbage slicer, it is painted chippy paint pink and it has been so fun to display with over the past 13 years ontop of the tub. There is no way I could ever use one of those new metal ones sold in famous stores. A shabby chic crystal chandaleir hangs above the tub...a bit romantic. I should paint the room chocolate brown...I can pretend until I make time to actually get to then I will have changed my mind anyway!

P.S. The tea stained wrinkly bunny is all homemade and was given to me as a gift from a VERY SPECIAL friend whom makes people she loves her "little dollies."...I had the special priviledge to assist in decorating a few rooms for her fabulous builder Husband Rays Parade of Home house which was a piece of art and a great experience to be a part of. Hope you dont mind me sharing my bunny Diane! It does make the little tomatoe plants so easy to enjoy now!
