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…

June updates and favorite posts

. Worry weighs a person down, an encouraging word cheers a person up.                                         Proverbs 12:25 Well, June flew by. Is this normal? I can’t believe how fast everything seems to be happening. It’s like everything is being fast forwarded. June was a really hot month, too hot. Each year it is getting hotter and staying…

Shopping adventures at an Arizona Farmer’s market.

We are slowly trying to get out more, but safely of course. As you know it won’t be long before we can’t go outside because of the heat. It’s so beautiful right now here in our state, except for the pollan that is. Allergies are acting up everywhere. This shopping adventure is a recent one….

DIY tiny nest baskets from nature’s art supplies.

“ Great art picks up where nature ends.”                       Marc Chagall   One of my favorite things to do when we are up north during the Spring is to collect little twigs, flowers , and leaves from the forest.

 Walking with the giants.

Lisa over at Boondock ramblings gave me this idea for a fun little post. She commented on one of my posts about how big the cacti were in one photo and that got me thinking that maybe there are others out there in the world that haven’t been exposed to cacti like someone who grew…

Shopping trip to an Arizona cactus gift shop.

  This month’s shopping adventure is at a tiny little gift shop at a cactus museum here in Arizona. There are actually two little shops in the museum across from each other. There are so many beautiful cacti to see here. This is the place to go if you are a cactus fanatic. The first…

Shopping trip to a real Arizona trading post.

Oh boy, do I have a fun one to share with you all this time. Out here in the old west we used to have trading posts in the middle of nowhere Arizona where natives, cowboys and pioneers would get most of their supplies. There was a lot of bartering that went on too. Sometimes…

  Arizona adventures-festival of lights

“ Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show.” For the past couple of years, my family and I take a road trip to the Besh ba Gowah archaeological site, about a mile away from Globe Arizona. This is an event I recommend to anyone visiting our state…
