Summer Greetings!

Hello all!
   Hope this finds you all well and enjoying your summer.  I sure am.  We have had a great summer weather wise this year.  Yes it was hot in July, that's what we look forward to! This month has been a great month, busy and the weather is starting to feel like fall... yep!  I said it.. !!  I love fall, the time of change.  I have been very busy this summer with birthdays, celebrations, anniversaries.. we have had several milestones this year.  Our family added a new little one in March.  Our son turned 30, my wonderful hubby turned 60 and my motherinlaw turned 90!  So we had a year where all these celebrations were 30 years apart!  Four generations!  Our family is truly blessed.  All of our grandchildren and children are healthy!  That is something to be thankful and grateful to God for! 
    I have been busy creating still, had a big "junk sale", got rid of alot. Still consigning at Antiques Downtown in Elk River and also at Mama's Happy in Independence.   My sis came from Dallas and helped me organize for the "JUNK BONANZA"! (Sept. 13-15)   I had more in my basement than I thought!  Loads of great junk and creations for my booth.  I'll be in the Junk Bonanza  tent to your left pretty much right away.. just look for The Loft on 2nd sign.  I will have a metal gazebo also for a makeshift room!  I am so excited to have a booth of my own.  The Junk Bonanza is a great venue for one of a kind finds, fun and excitement.  Lots of vendors and the "bloody marys" are to die for!  I know I will have at least 1 a day!  I am totally looking forward to this event! Please come and visit me in the tent to the left when you first come in! 
   I have a new venture that I also am looking forward to.  I have become an advisor for Advocare products.  It is a health and wellness company that is located in Texas.    I love, love, love the products.  My sister  from Dallas introduced me to these products and I immediately fell in love with them.. I feel better than I have since my 30's..., no kidding!   Check out my website  just in case you're wondering.  Losing weight and feeling energized and fit is my way of life now.. we aren't getting older.. we are getting better!  God Bless and hope to see you soon!

Can't believe it's been since April that I have written a post.  Was just going to learn to post pictures and I have seen that blogger has changed everything!  Back to the drawing board, I will need expert advice on this one!  Just wanted to say Hi and let you all know I'm as busy as ever, creating and refurbishing fast and furious.  I still have a booth up in Elk River Downtown Antiques,(check them out on facebook),  we have moved our booth closer to the desk area, which is in the middle of the store.  The Antique store is not only antiques and collectables, it is a trash to treasure.. trove of unique finds, always changing!    I am also out at Mama's Happy in Independence, you will find her on facebook, she has a great store, in an old creamery bldg right on Cty. 6 and 92.. such a gorgeous drive to get there, so check it out!  I'm also gearing up for Junk Bonanza in September, if any of you have not been to Canterbury Park for this awesome show, please put it on your calendars for Sept. 13,14,and 15.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday, I will post more about this show this summer.  I have been busy with my family this year, quite a few things, had a new granddaughter this year, number 8 for me.  3 boys and 5 girls now.. they are awesome. 
    Our son had his 30th birthday, our oldest daughter will be 35 this month!  (wow! :>)  My wonderful hubby of 39 years, will be 60!  He is awesome and I will be hosting an open house for him in July!  We have had 3 granddaughters birthdays in May!  I'm getting back on the creative track I think!  Joined an awesome book club..enjoying family, friends, garden, the sun, life in general!  I'll keep in touch.. take care and God Bless.   Julie
