Rose Bowl Flea Market

For many years I have wanted to go to the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena.
So on this trip to California I made sure I was there on the second Sunday of the month. The day was very hot and there was so much to see. I knew going in that I couldn't buy very much because I had no way of getting it home...bummer. I did a quick sweep and here are some of my pictures.

Joyworks for a visit.
The Snohomish Historical Society had a Tea Party and Vintage Bridal Show today and this lovely lady was the hostess.
Don't you love her wonderful hat with that big pink bow...

Lets have it for the Squirrels !!!!!

So you ask, what do squirrels have to do with Joyworks? Well, it has been an ongoing joke with the girls involving me for quite sometime. I get alot of enjoyment out of feeding them at my home and have quite a few of them that visit. So the girls tease me and call me squirrel girl. Of course we do carry a few squirrels at Joyworks too!!!

I'm showing just a few of the many gifts I have received because of the joke and this is just a sampling!!! Thanks Joyworks !

"He Delivered"

Pat our friendly UPS man delivered boxes of new merchandise to us today and we couldn't wait to dig in and see what exciting things arrived.

We received a shipment of fun journals, recipe boxes, notepads and even 2009 calenders from Lang. This is just a sampling of them. Don't miss out as I'm sure they will go fast.

"We're Back"

Thank you to all our supporters of Joyworks and our Blog while we have been away. I am back from my weekend getaway and will now try to fill Jana's shoes while she is gone. I spent a fabulous weekend down in Central Oregon for our annual "Girls Getaway" with my mother-in-law, two sisters-in-law, Aunt, cousin and friend..... As you can see by the pictures I've shared with you it is beautiful. We were surrounded by snow covered mountains in Sisters, Oregon and had clear blue skies with temps in the 80's. It was amazing and we had so much fun.

Tomorrow I am back at work and am anxious to see what new arrivals we have so I can share them with you. Thanks again for your patience.
