Howdy! Before we get started, you might want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine here, as I tend to ramble a bit...First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the reason for this blog in the first place. You see, I have another blog called, "365 Days Of The Year." Four years ago, I started it as a challenge to post a photo a day on it for a year, and I did! When my year was up, I thought I could just drop it, but I found I missed it. So, instead of the pressure of taking a "picture worthy picture" every day, I just started to post random thoughts and stories of my family and friends, with an occasional picture. After each year, I would have the entire year made into a hard cover book, to some day give to our son Landon. I also have a handbag business that I do on the side from my full time childcare business. Occasionally, I would post on my blog, things about purses or shows/expos that I was doing and it just didn't feel right. It was business and my blog was for family, friends, and my place to go to vent or just tell my little stories. I would also post a bit about business on facebook and that didn't feel right either. Now, I have started to dip my toes in a little crafty stuff. Nothing major, but a little something here and there and I needed a place to put it along with my purses that felt right. That place is here. Here I will post things about purses, re-purposing, flea marketing, or maybe just take you along on a few road trips with me. Wherever it takes us, I hope the trip is as much fun for you as it is for me. Ready to ride?

I know. I know. The length of that purse site link is insane! But, when I created it, I couldn't think of anything short and cute that wasn't already taken, like... "The Swedish Cowgirl." Ha! By the way, I am 1/2 Swedish. On the other side it's a bit Heinz 57. English, Dutch, German, Irish, Chinese and Indian! My dad's side was the wild side! So, it is what it is. I am what I am.

Load em' up!

Last summer, I tried my hand at repurposing junk/fun stuff and selling it. Let me tell ya, that's hard work! What was a fun little hobby, became a very stressful, time consuming, labor of work. So, I decided to hang up my junkin' business apron and just go back to doing the fun repurposing/creating that I love, when I want and for who I want to. (Usually me. ha!) So what's the problem? The problem is, I now have a shed and a basement FULL of cool stuff that is just begging to be made into something awesome!The solution? SHADY HOLLOW FLEA MARKET! I love that market. It's located in Detroit Lakes, Mn on US Hwy 59. Providing the weather is good, I plan on being there May 25th and "maybe" May 26th. (Memorial Weekend) I am sure I won't sell everything in one weekend, so I plan on showing up there a few more weekends over the summer. I'll keep you posted on which ones. Here is a link to the market, should you like to check it out. I'll be the vendor with the mile long row of good stuff, reasonably priced! See ya there!
