Best Start to Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving from Booth 58

Eat an extra helping for us and then waddle on up to McKinney for Home for the Holidays this weekend. 
Home for the Holidays

This is the best way to start your Christmas season.  Entertainment for the whole family, food galore, and awesome Downtown McKinney shopping! 

Make sure to stop by Antique Company Mall and Booth 58.

The Little Things

Many of the finds we snag out  junkin' are never seen by our Booth 58 shoppers. 
Isn't it always the littlest things that bring you the biggest joy?
 Big Brother has become the family baker.  My plastic measuring spoons have given him some trouble since the measurements have worn off.  I found this vintage set this fall.... He thinks he's the Iron Chef now...
 little thing... big joy
Found this doorstop... perfect for my annoying pantry door...and for Sister who loves kitties.  No real felines here due to allergies... but these cuties make her smile.
little thing... big joy

In September, Dad took Little Mr. 58 "to look for treasures" while Mom and I were neck deep in some shopping.  They came back with smiles from ear to ear.  This Ziploc bag full of legos made that little guy's day.  And Granddaddy was the hero "treasure hunter"...

Thanksgiving Always

I love Thanksgiving... I love the everything that leads up to Thanksgiving...  November is bliss!

The retail world doesn't embrace Thanksgiving quite like I wish it did.  The ceramic turkeys, fall foliage, and "Give Thanks" are mostly gone from shelves now making room for Santa, poinsettias, and "Be Merry."

I want to make sure our day-in-and-day-out lives are decorated with Thanksgiving.  Not the kind of d├ęcor that you can pick up at Target... But the decorations that come from our mouths and are seen on our faces...

"Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."  Ephesians 5:20

No Tricks...Just Treats at Scare on the Square this Friday!

Make sure you come up to McKinney Downtown for Scare on the Square THIS FRIDAY! 

We always costume up and join tons of other McKinney folks for this safe and secure family event.  As a mama who isn't a big fan of scary Halloween, this is the perfect venue.

 Lots of candy and lots of people watching.
My Mermaid, Ninja, and Batman take a candy break to check out Booth 58

 It wouldn't be Halloween without Scare on the Square for our gang!

Mustard in the Window

Moved some things around recently.  Put this mustard colored buffet in the window.

 I'm a big fan of this little piece.  It adds the perfect pop of color to any small space.  We think it looks rather welcoming for fall.

Pinterest Fail

I poke around Pinterest some.  A great place to get some inspiration... or a great place to get some laughs.

I stumbled across a pin that showed bleached pinecones...

We decided to follow the directions on the link and bleach up some too.  They suggested soaking the pinecones for a few hours.

After 3 DAYS, the pinecones still weren't what Pinterest promised.  More gray than white.

Oh well.  Great lesson in "You can't believe everything you see on Pinterest."
