Happy Birthday Keeping house & everything else!

It's been a year since I first started "Keeping house & everything else" and can't imagine life without it. I have met so many other wonderful bloggers along the way, some of which are dear friends now. I'd say this is a reason to celebrate with a giveaway.

I'm outta town for a few days and will be somewhat incognito but I look forward to catching up when I get back.

My lovelies are gone ......

Ahhhh, it's so nice to sit back now that I am all rested up from the Fieldstone Vintage Market and look at everybody's beautiful photographs of the market. Rachel & Lily from Birch & Bird did a spectacular job on putting this market on and I am just so honored to have been part of a group of such inspirational ladies. I read about these people all the time, it was really cool to see what they do up and close. As for me, I really didn't know what people were going to think of my corbels as I dragged in my stuff on Friday afternoon for setup. But with a huge exhale, I am elated to say that my little lovelies have all found wonderful homes. Guess what? I'm out of corbels and have an itch to go look for more. I am addicted. This is a good thing .....yes?

I was able to leave my perch for only a few minutes to take some "quick" picks and buy a pillow over at Raggy Girl Vintage.
