I'm sooo excited! I have the new look for my Blog I wanted! I love it. I think it reflects my antiques just perfectly. Once my Pink buddie Gail http://cupcakesandcutestuff.blogspot.com/ helped me figure out one little thing Voila a new blog look. It is free from the http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/.Check them and Gail out. Gail makes really cute jewelry so start your Xmas shopping early(along with some vintage shopping from Retromantic of course) lol.
I spent yesterday getting lots of my vintage glasses loaded on my web site. I want to get the rest loaded today and take more pictures of them for some alternate views. I am on vacation and really want to use the week to work on my business. Now that summer is over and I will be inside it's time to take it more seriously. I'm really ready for it. I am also working on a window design that I am hoping to be able to do in an open store front on our main st downtown for Xmas. This should help people find me and my little shop at my house.
Stay warm and let me know what you think of my new look. I love to hear from you. kath

So bear with me. I am trying to update the look of my Blog with this great free service I found. However there is one step I can't figure out....How do I shrink my template to Minima???? Once I get it it will be cool. Now its just a little bazaar. If anyone knows how to do this let me know....

This weekend is the Fall Art Tour Weekend
http://www.fallarttour.com/html/home.php in this part of the state. It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend and the artist's work is always amazing so it is a great event and always a good way to start getting ideas for Christmas and support local artisans.
So in honor of this I want to do my first Special! All glasses will be 20% off this Saturday and Sunday. Check out some of the selection above and below. There is something that will fit any Vintage,Retro, or Shabby table setting. There are more I couldn't get on here. Must be at my limit for a blog post???. Any questions leave me a comment or of course come on in this weekend. I will be open 10-5 both days. kath

The weather is amazing here now. It is in the high 70's?! Unheard of around here by the middle of October. I made the best of it by shopping. I hit an estate sale on my lunch on Friday and then on Sunday we kept up a family tradition by going to Gays Mills for Apples. Gays Mills is in a beautiful area of Wisconsin with rolling hills all in their Fall glory and apple orchards everywhere.
We hit our favorite onehttp://www.sunriseapples.com/. They have everything you could ever want and more. The apple donuts are to die for and warm from the oven....
On the way through the city of Gays Mills we noticed a green house/floral shop advertising vintage and antiques. Sooo of course after our apple adventure we popped on in. SCORE! It was a space that was using the green houses for antique mall space after the growing season was over. So smart.
It was down and dirty but treasures everywhere. Here are a couple of pictures of both of the shopping trips. I am cleaning them up and adding them to my shop for the upcoming Fall Art Tour http://www.fallarttour.com/ this weekend.
Hope to see you there or as ever if you see anything here you would like to purchase just pop me a note and we help you out.
