While driving to work last week I was greeted by this new billboard. I love our charming historical town and want to see it stay alive. Don't forget to support small businesses...they matter.

Chicks of the Sea

A dress from Joyworks that this chick would wear to the sea...

A small side note--
Being a late night girl it was sad to see Jay Leno's last night tonight. I'll greatly miss watching him while I blog...

Lemonade Day

What beautiful weather we are having.
Every year when the days start to warm up I crave lemonade...

Flower Shoppe

In my travels I always love flower shops and flower markets.
I took this picture in Paris a few years ago. It's one of my favorites...

Today at Joyworks I made a little flower market display using a variety of glass and mercury vases.

At home I always make sure I have a nice supply of small vases in my cupboard. They come in handy when I need a little something to bring for a hostess gift or just to say thank you. I quickly add a pretty cutting from my garden and it's ready to simple and sweet!

Vintage Style

This morning as I was drinking coffee out of my cute green polka dot mug I thought it would be fun to share with you my Cath Kidston collection. Over the years my friend Cheri has been bringing me back goodies from her store in London.

Coffee mugs, decorating book, and tea towels

An adorable enamel teapot

A cute enamel pot which is great for flowers.

At Joyworks we carry her paper napkins from Ihr which just happen to match...

And finally a cute cutting board.

Playing Cards

Today I bought these large flash cards at the market.

I can't wait to get to the store and play with the rest of them...


Happy Memorial Day!

Anyone There

You are probably wondering why the blog has stayed the same for a few days now. Well, Jana left Sunday for Vegas for a family commitment and was going to take her computer with her, but apparently she is having to much fun! I just couldn't resist posting this.

So yes we are here. Come down and see us at the store.

Good Junk

For the last few weeks the girls at Joyworks have been busy cleaning out their cupboards, painting furniture, collecting goodies, and crafting. We will have a booth full of Good Junk for you at the Snohomish Antique and Art Faire this Saturday. It looks like it will be a beautiful and fun day!

Triple Word Score Idea

We are always looking for scrabble games for the letters.
Today I was going to throw away some of the game boards and thought maybe I could make something with them instead.
I simply glued some pretty paper to the board and instantly you have a cute backdrop. The possibilities are endless...

I Love Flowers

Today at Joyworks the girls treated me to another special day. Look at all my pretty flowers and I even received more to put in planters on my deck.

Kay surprised me with this vintage book on how to make crepe paper flowers.

I was so excited to start making flowers that tonight I made a carnation...
