I have had fun creating two projects this week for my art group at Collected Treasures. This month we are working on Halloween. Of course my house is a wreck and I stayed up way past my bedtime everynight, but I love it when everything comes togeather. I can't wait to see what my art buddies have come up with.

Then and Now

I really admire the women that went into nursing and had to wear this uniform. Can you imagine? I'm lucky I get to go to work and wear scrubs. As Martha would say Its a good thing!

I know with our busy lives we can't always get by our favorite stores as much as we would like to. I will start previewing some of my fabulous finds on my blog. These items will be in my booth on Wednesday. I am very busy working on hand crafted holiday items. I hope to have some new postings on those soon. Please stay in touch.

Pillow Talk

Here are a few of my pillows displayed in my booth. I want each pillow to be unique. They range in size from body pillows to small back pillows. My favorite ones are with vintage fabrics and buttons. I encourage you to design some. It's a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon, and your only limited by your imagination. Have fun!

Blog.....What's a Blog?

Well here I am ready or not. This is my first blog so please be gentle. My days are filled with being on the job at 6:30 followed by a variety of challenges: cold environment, needy customers, and sometimes difficult bosses. If you haven't guessed yet I'm an OR nurse. I also have a small business called Then and Now located in Collected Treasures in Arlington Tx. I sell antiques, vintage, and collectibles.

Please stay tuned, there is more to come.

PS Check out my great sign. If your interested in one blog Lisa at
