In My Element

June 6, 2017








On Saturday, I had the opportunity to take my grandmother (who is now 91 years old!) out to lunch and to one of my favorite thrift stores that I hadn’t been to since before my daughter was born. It’s far from where I live and having my daughter has limited some of my adventures in thrifting.


I grew up going to thrift stores with my grandmother and her sister. I would go out with them for the day and we would have lunch, go to thrift stores, shopping, etc… My great aunt made her living by selling collectibles and antiques at flea markets and in her own stores. My grandmother loved helping her find items for business. So, I guess you can say I learned how to thrift from the two of them. My grandmother no longer helps her sister thrift, now that she is gone, but she still loves going to go thrift stores and buying random junk and killing time.


Going out on Saturday really reminded me what I have missed about running my business. I felt like my “old self” and in my element. I guess it proves that, just because you’re a mother, doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself. It just takes a little more effort to get there!

Third Times the Charm

August 29, 2016









It took me THREE times to get this photo shoot done. I had the intention on three different occasions and one thing after another happened that caused me NOT to be able to finish it. This is what happens when you have a baby and recently moved and can’t find things! So, the third time was the charm! I was able to do my make up, set up my camera, take this shoot, and take photos of new Shop items. All while the baby napped. Quite a productive day!


It felt really good to be back in the swing of things. I look forward (slowly, but surely) of getting things going again!
