Scenes from a weekend

Is this not the cutest stamp you ever saw????? Run, don't walk, to Red Lead in St. Louis or visit their web site for such awesome cuteness! I can't wait to make stuff with this little gal and her friend below!
Red Lead never ceases to amaze me! Chris and Sharon are the coolest!
Here are the stamps I recently purchased from their website! They seem to be in tune with my inner child at all times!
Here is a dish I recently purchased for $3. I just think it is so cute and love storing art supplies in it.
Here are my two fur children, Buddy and Pal, stalking the falling leaves.
Yesterday we went to the Third Sunday Antique Market in Bloomington, IL again. Here is a sight I love to come across, a bunch of vintage photos. I just want to sit in a comfortable chair and go through them all!
There was lots of vintage Christmas about too.
Here are my Mom and one of my bestest buddies, Lorie, giving commentary on the "stuff." We had a great day together. Lorie packed us a cute sack lunch and we met Jane and her Mom to eat.
Saturday night my Mom came to sleep overnight because we had to leave at the crack of dawn on Sunday for the Antique Market. Mike made some delicious chicken pasta salad!!!!
Close-up of Mike's culinary masterpiece!!!

Now I am getting ready to leave Wednesday right after work to drive up to Wisconsin for class with one of my idols, Lynne Perrella, at Valley Ridge. Should be a total gas. I will take pictures and post when I get back, so see you in a week people!!!
