The Red Cactus Funk and Junk Craft Market was this weekend! For the first show, it was fairly busy! Can't wait for the word to get out, then the September 16 show will be amazing! Plus, the owners are trying to get local farmers to come and sell home grown goodies! There were food trucks, a moon jump, and face painting this time! There were only about ten vendors, so there is more room for more, but there was a great mix of talents and wares! From LuLaRoe and Scentsy to wooden signs and hand sewn baby quilts. Then, there was me, who had a little of everything!
Even though I sold a bunch, I still have things to sell. The first two wreaths are $40 each. They are the larger grapevine wreaths. Then, the next three are $25 and they are the smaller wreaths.
Let me know if any of my local friends want a wreath! Sorry, they are too hard to ship.
Have a great day! You can make a difference!
The Market at Red Cactus Funk and Junk (9450 South Padre Island Drive) is this weekend! Yahoo! I have been painting, sewing, and making all-season wreaths! Plus, I am selling off some unique items. I am so excited about this show! It is from 4 - 9 on Saturday night, August 19. There are going to be lots of vendors, food trucks, and things for kids to do! So, bring your family and have a great time!! See you there!
Okay, I admit it! I am an old soul in my heart! I love the patina of old woods, rusted things, and antiques, but I like them mixed in with more color and modernized just a little.
I had an old house once that I loved! It was my favorite house. It had a few quirks, but I loved that too! You could see daylight through the wood floors, but they were beautiful! The house was built to last through two hurricanes!
Anyway, I have always loved doilies! Even as a child, I was given my grandmother's doilies. Now, I don't like them under lamps like they used to be used...unless you live in an old house like I did, but I like to find new uses for them.
I am not trying to pat myself on the back, but I love the way these pillows turned out! I wanted to keep the red one, but I couldn't find the right place for it in my new home. So, off to the craft show it goes...a small tear rolls down my face (just kidding).
Enjoy your day, and find your passion!
I love to journal. I try to write every morning, and it becomes almost a prayer! As I write my thoughts, ideas come to me that I didn't realize I was worried about or thankful for, so generally I stop for a moment and think about those things.
I created some journals a few years ago, and have used them all! So, I made some more for the upcoming show.
I forgot to tell you about a new show opening in Corpus Christi on August 19 from 4 - 9. They will have lots of vendors, food trucks, and things for the kids to do!!! It is called the Market at Red Cactus Funk and Junk at Oso Bridge Plaza 9450 SPID. I am so excited! Anyone that knows me well knows I get goosebumps when exciting things are about to happen, and I got major goosebumps when I heard about this show! So, please put it in your calendar, and come see us!!!
Have a wonderful day!
When I saw this waterfall on Kauai, I was taken back by how unique it was. It was in a canyon, and we almost missed it!
As I thought about it later, I realized I had never seen anything like it. The water was still clear as it bubbled over it. My mind wandered, and I thought about how all our lives are like that. There are days that are as smooth as the cascading water, then there are days that come crashing down, but our uniqueness is how we handle it. Like the waterfall, there will be storms that cause the water (our problems) to come gushing down. But during normal times, the water runs smoothly.
Notice there are twists and turns in the stream, just like our lives! Just remember God cares about the storms of our lives, and at every turn, He is there!
I can't take credit for this crazy coffee table because I stole the idea from my friend, Amy. In fact, I think she found it on a curb somewhere, and when she moved, she helped me load it in my car to take it to my house for my coffee table.
So, when I got it home, I actually had it outside under the pergola at first, but realized it would be better than my current coffee table, and it fit the room better.
So, I painted it white, and brought it in. I used a galvanized bucket to sit it on. This is fine since we have no little ones living here, but I do have to be careful when visitors come. I know I should build legs for it, but I like the uniqueness of the large bucket!
Okay, so the bucket was old and had paint splashed on it, but I like things that have a story to tell. A new bucket would have had to be distressed for my style.
Kind of like me, a little distressed around the edges, but boy do I have a story to tell! Life is full of ups and downs, but remember those dings and dents make up who you are! Let your character come out, and bless those around you!
