Shopping in Petosky

Dang! went to my 'dashboard ' and found this posting and had 'forgot' to add to my blog! So a month or 2 old.. but is alittle bit of fun stuff , while I was away..The Deer is 'MudPie' melamine coaster [ got the plates too]..

The Cabbage bowl was my Birthday present from my it.. and added the 2 tall bunnies to my 'faux chocolate' bunny collection..Bought them at a sweet shop in Petosky..
My Thomas Paul melamine plates.. A funky theme on transferware.. maybe fun for a fall table setting.. the owls are my favorite..
A tray full of bunnies..

My sister on a windy day of shopping in Petosky..My first time there and really liked the shops and layout of the town.we had a nice time and look forward to going back...
This was a cool shop all done in creams, rust peeling paints and all the stuff we like to ooh! about.. and they had a table top done in Turnips in glasses..really was kinda pretty..

well, my favorite place was our first stop The Quiet Moose.. rustic chic, lodge look interiors and lovely gardens in the Back of the store..

Had to take a picture of my sister and her daughter in the pretty setting...

Inside the store a cottage look,love the painted dresser and bird lamps..
Shell buttons on furnishings and candle sticks..
Hmm ..not quite our cabin but got some nice ideas..

Like the birch bark valance..we could do that.. this is where I got the Deer plates..
My niece Bre by the cabin bed..
Stuffed racoons in a canoe..what more can be said..

Yeah, that's me ..not the best picture,l ook kinda grumpy but wasn't.. just tired.. and that desk need some accessorizing!..think I need a coffee ..

Bought these cool digi papers [used in my new August blog banner] at Rhonna always has the coolest designs..

Wow! I was only suppose to be gone a couple of weeks ...and well ended up being almost 2 months!! [gone longer than had planned, but all worked out] First I want to apologize to all for the long delays, as no access to a computer [which I did miss!] ..had a great time with my sister and her family... then spent time with my daughter and the sweetest and most busy of grandkids..Played alot with Legos and Bionicles!! Kept me busy and even lost 8lbs.!

Will post pictures tomorrow of a few fun shops we visited...but for now here is some pieces that will be on for 'Sale' Sunday Aug. 10th.. So the coming weeks my brain is focusd on "HALLOWEEN" for my 'only' upcoming show in Oct. "GHOULTIDE GATHERING" and will add new items in Sept. to the website...
