Jan Thompson of the Polka Dot Barn is hosting an amazing giveaway on her blog

My new digs

Starting next month, I will have a booth in a brick and mortar shop in Corpus Christi. I am so excited!! I am renting a 5 x 10 area with a couple of friends of mine. The place is on antique row and is located at 4325 S. Alameda.

We get to start setting up on Sunday, August 2. I am on a fast search for furniture. I have two weekends - well actually one because I am participating in Riviera Trade Days this weekend. It sure is going to be hot! I think we will have fun - I am doing a booth with Joan & Betty.

Repurposed Rubber Stamp Holder

I repurposed this old rubber stamp carousel to be an unusual flower vase. I used 5 bottles to give it nice balance, but it could have up to 10 bottles in it. The bottles used to be used as spice jars. Since I've been cooking for awhile, I no longer like to use the spice racks. I would rather keep the spices in their original containers. When I first got married, I thought that they would look great on display in my kitchen. Turns out, you have to dust them when they are on display.

Working at the desk

If it is necessary to have lunch at your desk, you might as well treat yourself. This lunchbox that I found at my favorite antique store in Sinton has lots of character. I love the little push button closure. I wonder how many lunches it has carried in its lifetime?
