Creating A New Blog Look

Wow.  I have been working on my blog off and on all day; trying this and that.........I think I am finally happy with it.  I have learned more today about html's then I ever wanted to know!! 

I have been so afraid to change anything because I wasn't sure I would be able to fix it if I goofed it up, and I was sure I WOULD goof it up!  Today, I just decided to jump in with both feet and if I messed it up I would just start over.  Well, I DIDN'T goof it up!!

Thank you Jody from TheSmithHotel for turning me onto The Background Fairy.  It was much easier to change the appearance of my blog than I thought it would be........and it was free!  I love free! 

So, if you think you can't do it, don't listen to that pesty little voice...........you CAN do it.  Believe me, if I can do it anybody can.  Go for it and have fun!

The Hunt

People ask us all the time:  "Where do you get all of the stuff you make your jewelry out of?" 

This is one of the most enjoyable parts of our job!!  We love hunting for treasures!  We go to estate sales, yard sales, antique stores, and our favorite; "junk stores".  Our absolute favorite is a place on Hwy 273 between Redding and Anderson, Junk N Treasures.  What an experience!  It is cold in the winter, hot in the summer, dirty........and an absolute blast!  We have found so many really cool things there.  Of course cool to us might seem like trash to other people. 

We also love the antique stores on front Street in Anderson.  Unfortunately, they are dwindling in numbers.  We find a lot of "stuff" in goodie bags at Oregon Street Antique Mall.  These bags are so much fun because until you dump them out you don't know what all you have.  It's better than Christmas!

And, people just give us stuff!  So many people know what we do and they give us old keys and jewelry that they have laying around.  So, if anybody out there has any old stuff they want to get rid of we'll take it!
