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…

A whole lot of salt and pepper sets.

  I wasn’t kidding when I posted that here in the Arizona desert there is nothing to do but shop during the summer. And now that most of our wooded areas up north are closed down because of the drought, there really is nothing to do but shop. I guess you could go to the movies,…

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…

Summer time second hand shopping-

When it heats up here in Phoenix we go shopping. Because we are a sunny state and tourist destination we have a ton of places to shop at. There is no shortage here in this state when it comes to the entertainment of shopping. My favorite kind of shopping is always second hand. I LOVE…

Dollar day do over-teacup planter

Came across this set while out junking with my aunt in Mesa Arizona. I love the shops out in Mesa. They have a lot of really nice vintage items in their shops out there. Not sure if this vintage or not but I thought it would be a nice little planter for some of my…

Dollar day do over…upcycled tray.

I picked this tray up on one of my thrift store dollar days. All this tray needed was a new color and some flowers, gotta have flowers. First I had to clean it, just in case there was grease or any kind of dirt that would interfere with the paint sticking. I used chalked paint…

A day in Prescott Arizona…part two.

  Our road trip was coming to an end so before it got too late and that warm sun left (remember we are from Phoenix) we headed to our favorite place for a take out lunch…to Lynx Lake. When my husband and I first started dating, he was 19 and I had just turned 18,…

DIY old drawers/new shelves

In our city, my family and I love large pick up days during our trash service. This may be gross to others, but it isn’t like we are rummaging through food, it is mostly building material from house remodels in older neighborhoods. Instead of it going to the dump, we recycle and reuse. It saves…
