I am so excited!!! Hubby and I are taking off tomorrow morning for a much needed weekend road trip. Our destination is The Third Market Sunday in Bloomington, IL on Sunday. We are leaving tomorrow morning and going to explore the towns on the way and maybe a few state parks and then grab a hotel for the night and wake up early Sunday morning to go shopping for some treasures at Third Market Sunday!!!

The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I hope to find some wonderful treasures! I am going to take my camera and hope to take some photos to share with all of you.

Another Uncle Sam Doll & Star Hanger listed

The weather was soooo gloomy, cool and rainy was a great day for creating so I finished up two more creations!! They are both Americana items and are now listed on Ebay.
The first item is an Uncle Sam with stars in a vintage metal mailbox and the second is an Americana wood star door hanger.
Here is a sneak peek at them.

I think tomorrow I am going to take a break and head to the zoo (my favorite place!) with my sister and my nephew and spend the day with them walking and enjoying the animals.

Hope you have a great day tomorrow!!!
