New Beginnings & An Exciting Announcement

I have been dreaming for some time of starting something new.  I grew antsy when I turned 40 a couple years ago.  I had always thought that for some reason I would return to work once all the kids were in school.  In fact, when my second child was in preschool I began taking a refresher course in broadcasting and made a voice-over demo.  Shortly after, I discovered I was expecting our third child and wanting to give her the same experience I had given the other two, I set my plans of returning to work aside.  A couple years ago when my youngest started Kindergarten, I again felt the urge for a change.  I began to look for a new home (one with a little more property and character), but when I couldn’t find what I was looking for I started rearranging rooms in our home.  Some of these rooms hadn’t really been touched since we moved in and as I shuffled things around I had great deal of satisfaction in using what we already owned, repainting some things and making some slipcovers to eek out a few more years with the couches we had bought as newlyweds.  IMG_3580_2

As I researched how to complete some of these projects I stumbled upon a blog world I had never really knew existed.  I loved the inspiration and useful information I was receiving, I loved the beautiful photos and I loved the stories of other’s journeys.  As I scouted thrift stores, antique shops and flea markets for some pieces that fit my new design style, I discovered that I had a knack for finding hidden treasures.  The first time I stepped into a barn – turned into vendor spaces selling vintage decor –  a new dream started to take shape.  That was about two years ago now and this week I am happy to share with you that I signed on as a new vendor at Sweet Clover in Fredrick, Md.  I have a busy week ahead getting my space ready for next weekend’s sale.  You can find my new Antica Market shop upstairs at Sweet Clover, 4051 Stanford Ct., Fredrick, MD this week 9/18 – 9/20.  Hope you can stop by and join me in celebrating this new beginning!  You can also check out the other vendors and sale dates at Sweet Clover here –

  1. I wanted to create you a very little note in order to give many thanks as before with the breathtaking pointers you’ve shown in this case. It was quite strangely open-handed with people like you in giving openly what exactly a lot of people could have made available for an e book in making some bucks for themselves, precisely considering the fact that you might well have tried it in the event you desired. These creative ideas additionally served as a fantastic way to be sure that most people have the same fervor the same as my very own to learn good deal more in terms of this matter. I am certain there are millions of more pleasant situations in the future for those who discover your website.
