Today I went to a local antique store, Apple Barrel Antiques, to inquire about renting a space. After talking to the young man I decided to walk around and look. Maybe I would find something with cherries on it.
I found all these little teddy bears looking for a new home.
All sorts of pottery, glassware, pictures, dishes, old canning jars, just a little bit of everything.
Looking toward the front of the store from upstairs
Looking toward the back of the store from upstairs. There were old beds, quilts, dressers, cradles, some shabby chic and some very old things. And then as I turned the corner to go back downstairs there HE stood in all his glory in that white outfit we all remember him in and looked like he was singing. I wanted to take him home but where would I put him. I will just have to see.
You see ladies Elvis is still around after all these years, he's been living upstairs in the antique store on Hwy 78 in Oxford, Al.
I live in Alabama with my husband, 2 cats,3 dogs and a tank full of fish. We've been married 11 wonderful years. We have 3 grown children between us and 5 grandchildren. We live a simple life. We love going camping when we have the time. I love crafting, making cards using rubber stamps and the Cricut Expression, scrapbooking, yard sales and collecting things. I worked for a local newspaper until the end of October,2009 when I lost my job. I had been there for almost 41 years. So now what do you do, you either start over somewhere else or just retire and I choose to try the retired route. I'm sure it will be fun not having to go to work everyday with all the stress. This will be my first summer at home in a long time but I'm sure I can find plenty to do. We are both christians and attend a wonderful church.We put God first and everything else just falls into place. We are truly blessed.
