Have a Happy Valentine's Day with Flowers and Sweet Treats

We are excited to announce that we will be doing a pop up show, in collaboration with Angea Howell and Sweet Bean Coffeehouse on Valentines Day (February 14, 2016). Angea and I will have roses and fresh flower arrangements that are ready for you to pick up outside of Sweet Bean. 

We will have my glamper, parked near the drive thru restaurant and you can quickly pick out a bouquet for your sweetheart and take it with you. Sweet Bean will be offering their Sweetheart FrappĂ©'s, an assortment of their different coffees and drinks, chocolate covered strawberries, cake pops, along with more sweet treats. 

Celebrate a Happy Valentines Day by shopping with local, small businesses and express your Love with Flowers and Sweet Treats!

Sweet Lil' Things

I love baby calves, more especially when they let you pet them and take selfies with you! This sweet lil' thing was born Monday. Our cows aren't pets, but this baby girl's mother is one of my favorites. Some cows will hide their baby in the brush and woods for a week before bringing them out with the herd. Not 35, she always likes to show off what she made! She came running up to the feed line, joyfully showing off her baby, just a few hours after it was born. While mom ate feed, I got to pet the baby and take a picture. 

I remember 35's first calf. I had been asking her for a while, "when are we gonna have a baby, 35?"  I had fed all the cows their feed and was checking / counting the herd. 35 ate her feed in a hurry and took off trotting across the field, looking back, to make sure I saw her. I followed her in the feed truck and she proudly showed me her new baby, as if to answer my question with "now!" Her babies always have the best eyelashes, cutest little ears with a few wispy white hairs, and speckles on their noses!  
She was likely born during the rain or just shortly thereafter. I wish I had a recent picture, to show just how low this pond was. Let's just say, it was very low and Jeff had been driving the tractor on this side of the pond dam, that is now under water. We haven't had significant rainfall since summer and it was beginning to really concern me. While it's not full by any means, I'm still very thankful for the nice rain this week. (It's raining as I type!) 

A couple of other little calves came to check out the new girl! So what should we name this sweet lil' girl?

New Tumbler Wraps!

Fun new tumbler wraps are now available online. Show your Yeti some L-O-V-E with a new rustic sleeve, just in time for Valentine's Day. Of course, they can be used anytime and will fit other 30 ounce cups (mine is not the name brand)! I can't pick a favorite one. 
I mean pink Mason jars, leopard print arrows, heart with wings, lace, and jute - whats not to LOVE about all that?!?
Junk is Love, with fun furry fringe! And with some strange turn of events, I'm starting to like leopard print (but only in small batches.) 
 Gone Junkin' and Vintage trucks and glampers - see why I can't pick a favorite? Turquoise and now Hot Pink fringe options, after someone inquired about pink fringe on these.

 Fun and Flirty Vintage Cowgirls and Lace
 Or just a little rustic and shabby.

Seven new styles, seven days of the week...hmmm, maybe my tumbler needs a different outfit for everyday of the week! So tell me - which one do you LOVE the most???

Find all these and more in my etsy shop
Additional wraps and styles available in our Uniques and Antiques booth in Mineola, Texas

Spring + Love at Uniques and Antiques

It's a new year and time for a little update to our Uniques and Antiques booth in Mineola, Texas.

Some Valentine love and springy items arrived today... Because we are anxiously awaiting spring and need some color in our lives!

So this wooden calendar reminds me of the old church bulletin boards were Sunday School attendance was recorded! ALL of the months and letters are there, in a little bag. I knew if they were all on the calendar and with my luck, I would go to get the calendar off the wall and all the numbers would fall on the floor, behind the desk in our booth. So calamity avoided, bundle together in a little drawstring bag. 
Valentine wreath with primitive style heart and pip berries, white hydrangeas and a single red rose. 
The Gone Junkin' tumbler wraps have been a hit, but now your Yeti wants to have a Valentine makeover! Show it some love, with a new sleeve! (Several in stock at the booth and lots more coming online as soon as I can get them photographed and listed.)
When I follow my heart, it leads me to you pillow with a shabby heart with wings. 
A little French Country Love... 
Angea aka Rooster Tails have a ton of fun working on items for our booth and our road trips to Mineola! We had a board meeting at The Jalapeno Tree and did a little junkin on our way home this afternoon and found more treasures to makeover for our booth! 

Pssst, don't forget to look behind the wall - there's furniture, signs, bags, and more goodies once you look around! 
A pastel spring twiggy wreath, with a birdhouse. 
Oh forsythia, you brighten the wall with your yellow blooms and we can't wait to see you blooming in yards! 

All of the above items are currently available at Uniques and Antiques - 124 S. Line St. Mineola, Texas. Angea and I thank you for shopping with us and supporting local, small handmade businesses!
