A little house warming gift and weekend plans...

Erica from Golden Egg Vintage recently moved into a new home with her sister and I decided that she needed a little something to celebrate her new home. 

 This cigar box has been transformed into little house warming shadow box.


I also sent a box of crafting goodies and small treasures.

Do you have any special plans for the weekend?  As long as the weather forecast remains accurate, warmer temps are finally in our weekend forecast.  The timing couldn't be better.

 My sister, Mom and I are headed to Allegan on Sunday for the season opener of the Allegan Antique Market!

Over 400 vendors.  I can hardly wait!!  

Have a super crafty/thrifty weekend, my friends!

have fun at the flea market. Im headed out to do some shopping tonight with Bethany and torry pie.. still need new shoes! I think I'll buy a couple pairs.. and some sandals! well, thats if I find any I like.. I'm sort of picky. after that my weekend is an empty canvas! the weather is supposed to be nice, so I suppose I will be out a bit in the yard and in a bit working on these bears.
have a great weekend my friend!

What a fun idea. I was wanting to make something for a cousin may give my hand at one of these but it will be a chicken coop on the inside. I am sure it will not measure up to yours, you are just too good!!

Good luck at the antique market...always nice to get out and do some shopping! Sunny and in the 70s and no big plans. I will probably hit an estate sale or too (imagine that).
