I've had a fascination with vintage eye chart signs lately, and after seeing how much they were selling for, took the route of maybe a reproduction print, but even those were too steep for my pocket book. So I got to thinking.......why not make my own?

While visiting with my Mom in California a couple of months ago, we made cake pops for the first time. It was a very labor intensive project, and about halfway through the process, you begin questioning yourself as to why you started it in the first place. In our little kitchen at the house, it would prove difficult to have the counter space needed to take on such a project.

Yes, I'm a vendor, and am I allowed to say "I'm pooped"? What a whirlwind of four days of activities, starting with Thursday and packing up all our stuff and heading to Spokane, WA and ending Sunday afternoon with having to disassemble our booth and happily, only pack back up about half of what we brought.
I have to tell you, the biggest surprise and one of the best memories of this event was when I was approached by a young couple who asked which one of us, Cori or I had the blog. I assumed they were asking about Cori's blog, which has the same name as our business, and started to introduce them to Cori, when they said it was the truck driving blog. I couldn't have been happier meeting this couple and getting the chance to see face to face the wonderful people that read my blog. Although the husband had enjoyed the truck driving side of the blog, the wife was enjoying following my adventures in the junking world. Honestly, it made my day!
Or the older couple, who have a 35 year old son, who as a boy, would sing the Davy Crockett song over and over. When they saw the old vintage Davey Crockett suitcase we had for sell, did not hesitate to pick it up and buy it for their son to remind him always of that childhood memory.
