Good Morning Sunday and Happy Halloween to blogland!

 My favorite place to be with my magazines and books.
I'm having a new cushion made so that's why the sofa looks lumpy with pillows lined up. I get it tomorrow and can't wait. I'm having one long cushion instead of 3 and extra fat. I will show you.
 I bought this at an estate sale for $2.00 and love it on my front door.
 I have lots of magazines.
 This I bought at the same estate sale, a long window with  nice chippy paint! $5.00! The wreath was $1.91 at the Thrift Store.

 My front entrance Halloween decorations.
 My dinning room. I feel I know what to buy I just have trouble displaying it.

Happy Halloween!

OK I'm learning about Craigslist. I was so excited that I could post about my new booth so I went a little crazy and posted all over Craigslist.  Well I guess there are people out there that don't like that.  Why????
I think there is room for all of us. Are they jealous? Is my little booth that much competition?

This photo has nothing to do with Craigslist, I just liked it.

OK, something else. I switched over to the new posting way and I'm not sure I like it. I'm trying to be better about change because change is good. Well, it doesn't like the word Craigslist and won't let me keep it as is, I did try.

I have another question. How do you get people to come to your shop?  The Antique Market my booth is in is new to the area. A stand along building that is a destination shop.  They did move to this location after 15 years downtown, about 5 miles from the new location, so they so have a following. But we need to get new people in there. I think it's great with something for everyone.

Anyway now I can't post another picture, so I think I will stop.
Enjoy your Friday and don't forget to fall back!  Ya Ho! An extra hour this weekend and we finally are cooling of a little, 5 days of 91 degrees. It should only get up to about 83 today, a cold front is here!

I bought this at a garage sale for $10.00. It's not old and not an expensive piece, but it's what I wanted to put my TV on so it would be up higher.

Next time I think I will use semi gloss, this is flat white, it's OK but I don't think it will hold up very well.
I do like it.
What was I watching?!
This is an old ice chest made of metal, I love it.
Enjoy your Monday my blogging friends and thank you for stopping by, it really makes me happy.
You are loved!

Have you seen Winter Garden Florida?!

I have lived in Orlando since 1957 and never been to Winter Garden!
Why has no one taken me there or said anything?
This is Carmen, she has an adorable shop called Pre Loved Affordable.
She is a very talented lady, makes beautiful lacy lamp shades, paints furniture and much more!

Her prices are great. They live up to the name.

She made this table!

38 N Boyd St.
Winter Garden Fl

This place was great!

Meet Phyllis
She stays next to the register all day long.

They said she is not normal?
What does that mean for a chicken?

She is very sweet and will let you hold her and pet her.
She and a hard life the first year, they said she was beat up by the other chickens....bullied!
This feed shop has had her for 2 years now so she is living a great life. She has had 5 eggs!

She is adorable!

Cute bunnies

Sweet baby chicks!

I want one or two.

My hubby says no.

So sweet!

Beautiful town square.

Old fire station.

Good directions

Great shops

Lots of bikes

The bike trail starts here and goes though Orlando. I'm not sure how far but it's far.

Great good!

This was a Barbecue place.

Cute houses.

I don't like the signs though.

We had a great day!

And we only got to a few of the places we wanted to get to.

So we will be going back!
