I just wanted to stop in and share with you all two cute treasuries that I was recently included in.
Check em' out!


Now it's back to work on pillows, scarves and headbands.
Hope you're all having a nice day!

Into the Wild

shirt, shorts, bag & belt: thrifted
oxfords: charlotte russe
tights: target

I've been completely absent from the blogging world for the last week and a half! I've been busy, busy, busy.
Less than 2 weeks after getting hit by a car, Rickey managed to break his foot causing him to be out of work for over a month. All of that is causing us to move out of here and back home. All of this stuff really REALLY stinks! But hopefully it won't stink so much when we're saving so much money and able to go fun places and do fun things!

I just put our apartment up on Craigslist about 30 minutes ago and we've already got two people coming to look at it tomorrow! This is crazy!

Some good news--Maggie's Farm is going to have a booth at the River City Music Festival in Cape Girardeau! I'm so excited, but have SO much work to do! It is October 1st & 2nd, so it's right around the corner! I'm going to bring the whole shop plus at least double the amount I currently have and then a bunch of handmade items! I've been having so much fun thinking up ways to display everything!
With all of the preparation for the festival and the move (both only 2 weeks away. eeek!) I will probably continue to be mostly absent from the blogging world. But when I return expect pictures from the festival!!

Fun & Friends!

Just some silly pictures from a fun filled night.

OF COURSE I was able to take a bunch of pictures, but not one single outfit photo. How lame.
Well, with what you can see...
my dress was vintage from a shop in Columbia, MO
and shoes from Charlotte Russe.

I hope you're all having an equally fun and silly weekend!

Busy Bee

Thanks to my new found love of tomatoes, here is a yummy dinner I made for us the other night.
Fried tomato sandwiches.
With yellow and red tomatoes, cheese, spinach, bacon and jalapenos. So good!

Sorry for the lack of personal posts lately (well lack of posts in general, i guess). I have been such a busy bee, but not really in a good, productive way unfortunately. I have been working like crazy. And last week while riding his bike to work, Rickey got hit by a car! So, needless to say I lost my shop workday and day off to the hospital and taking care of him. He's doing fine though, so that's really good.

I've been coming up with ideas for the shop left and right, but haven't time to pursue many of them. That really stinks! I keep being afraid that I'll forget something I want to do, but luckily I've written everything down. Maybe if I share the things I need to work on it'll really get me going.

-make candles
-make pillows
-work on dresses
-work on shop freebies

There we go! I should probably get to work!

P.S. Some items I just added to the shop! It's been a while since I've added any new accessories. When thrifting I usually head right for the shoe section, then the dresses. By then I've probably already gathered more things than I should be spending money on and not even think to look in the jewelry cases. Last time I DID think to check it out and found some of these cuties that you can check out in the shop right now!

I have also added a few things to the SUMMER SALE. So be sure to check it out!!

We're supposed to get the new season of The Office in at work today, so I think I'll be heading up there to get that! Do you guys have any fun plans for the day??
