Arizona antique shopping.

I have another fun one for you guys. This one is a two part post since there are so many unique things to show you all. A couple weeks ago in the middle of July my family and I all went up to the cool woods and mountain areas here in Arizona to check out…

Shopping for antiques at an Arizona antique market.

We have a giant Antique market here in our city. It’s like visiting a museum. Thought I share some photos from a day of shopping there. You may remember this warehouse from a post I did back during the Spring when I went shopping for Easter décor. I went back a couple of times since…

A sweet summer time treat .

 Food has gone up so much lately. Starting to feel a lot like the 1970’s. Now I know why my parents were so scared back then. I was really little but I do remember having to move in with my Nana to save money.  Even though food prices are going up there are still ways…
