So is it too early to think of Christmas?Well, I don’t think so!

Here are some photos from last year to get us in the mood.

Next Thursday we will be creating some Christmas magic in the shop.Can’t wait.

Next Friday we will stay open till 5:00p.m. (This will be new hours for our first Friday of the month.11:00a.m.-5:00p.m.)

We will continue to be open on  first Saturday of the month10:00a.m.- 3:00p.m.

I love decorating with Christmas vintage items.

I think I love it so much because it warms my heart thinking about all the wonderful Christmases I had as a child and the ones I cherish when my boys were young. Now I have two wonderful grandchildren to start over the traditions. More blessings to come.

A couple of my favorite things I like to use to decorate with our old sleds, skates,snow shovels and vintage ornaments. Tie some fresh greens on a sled or skates stand them on your porch or by the front door. Sling your skates over your sled. Do you have a chair on the porch? Lay your skates on your chair, tie a bow with greens or holly. Put a snowman next to it.

We will have skates decorated for you to hang and maybe a snow shovel decorated! Come in soon! They won’t last!

Fill glass bowls,jars and vases with vintage ornaments, add fake snow and greens. Instant festive decor!

Wednesday’s Recipe:

 

After your turkey dinners from Thanksgiving and Christmas, slice that turkey for delich sandwiches.

Multi grain bread, mayo, turkey, field green lettuce, salt and pepper on turkey, stonewall kitchen cranberry relish, and my favorite is a little stuffing on it. Now it is also good without the stuffing too.

This a Stuffed Tom Turkey.

Come in and get your cranberry relish. Lots of good recipes with the cranberry relish.

 

Pumpkin Time

I love Fall, the cool crisp air and pumpkins everywhere. The changing colors of the leaves scattered all over the ground.

We hope you come in and visit with us.

Our fire is looking cozy for Fall!
Our fire is looking cozy for Fall! We want to invite all of our customers to come out to visit SOSNM during this beautiful time of the year.

Our shop looks like a pretty fall day. We have changed our displays and added beautiful merchandise.

Great Sales , don’t miss them.

Pictures below are:

The outfit is featured in a store in Ocean View, DE, Interiors by Kim:Kim’s Korner. Stop by lots of accessories, collectables, and furnishings for all homes. Turnkey decorating is available.

The other photo shows Black Crow Candles. Super smelling and long burning candles. Stay tune for a very special addition to this line of candles.

Our last photo is my weathered pumpkin. Quick and easy DIY.

Take a plastic pumpkin, paint it whatever color you desire.

Let it dry, then take a light sandpaper and weather your pumpkin.

I liked sanding around the face and grooves of the pumpkin. Final step, antique it with a stain or diluted brown paint. Wipe off the access. Let it dry. This is a cute and easy project. Send pictures. So we can post.

Come in and check out the arrival of new pumpkin items from Stonewall Kitchen.

Fall isn’t the only one changing its color.

We definitely changed our colors in the shop last week!

Dee and I worked changing and arranging furniture, antiques, soaps, fall foliage, Sheila,gifts, food, and much more till we ourselves couldn’t move!

 It was worth it! Stop in to see all our new displays, along with many new treasures.

We now have an extensive line of antique and new jewelry. It’s fabulous!

Big news, Sheila moved!

Finally that woman got off the orange flowered couch!

There is a tiny problem, we can’t find her!

There is a flapper gal who isn’t saying a word!

Stay tuned, to unfold the mystery?

Could Sheila have a sister?

Change is Good???

Girls are hanging around waiting to see the sales!

Girls are hanging around waiting to see the sales! They heard changes are arriving at SOSNM!

Most people would say Change is good. I agree with this statement but I would like to add a small thought with this statement. It is sometimes difficult to accept change. I have a little equation that helps me cope.

Creamware with fall, autuminal colors

Creamware with fall, autuminal colors

Change + Hard Work+ Faith=Acceptance

Yes, change usually means you will need to work hard at your situation to accept the new situation.

 

 

Don’t give up! Change is part of life. Sometimes we aren’t happy about the direction of our lives when change hits our road we are traveling down.

 

We feel unsure of what lies ahead on our road.

 

My advice is we need to have faith that it will work out. Stay strong.

Try being positive, work hard toward accepting your change.

 

 

 

 

Speaking of change, Something Old&Something New Marketplace will be experiencing change over the net three days.

I’m arriving tomorrow with my sleeves rolled up and getting ready to change the displays. Dee and I have a lot of hard work ahead to make our shop look different. It needs a little freshing up. We hope you come in and find a treasure from our shop that you go home with. Let us know what you are looking for . Thanks for shopping with us.

I’m bringing in some antiques, vintage items, and lots of jewelry! Vintage , new costume and new gemstone jewelry in gold and sterling. Come in! See the sparkles!

Check us out on Facebook! Dee’s announcing some great flash sales  that will be happening on Friday and Saturday! Don’t forget we will be opened till 6:00 p.m. Friday, Saturday, we will be open 10:00a.m.-3:00p.m.

My idea for the recipe today is:

Use Tollhouse cookie recipe or a sugar cookie recipe

Add the Tollhouse pumpkin spice chips to the recipe.(new, I found them at Giant Foods)

You might want to combine chocolate chips and pumpkin spice chips

Add your favorite nuts

Add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Delich

Until next time, no matter when change hits your road, have faith, determination, and work hard to accept it. May you always have the courage to do this. Abundant blessings to all.

Falling into Back to School

Happy Wed. Everyone!

As a mom I had mixed feelings on the children

going back to school. I remember I felt more than

ready for my boys to go back to school, the routine

was good for all of us. But on the other side of the

coin, I knew here comes the disagreements on time

to get up and time to retire. And homework! And

practices, tutors, and music lessons!

Driving in our mini van all over image image image image imagetown. It’s part

of life with the

kiddies.

Now I’m a grandma, thinking a little differently.

It’s sad to see Summer coming to an end.

I don’t want the kids to go back to school so early. I want time to slow down.

It’s amazing what happens to us with a little wisdom and age.

Enjoy every minute of the hustle and bustle with falling back to school with your munchkins.

Today I’m sharing some Fall products that we have in our shop.

I love Fall! Stop in to see us, put a little Fall in your life. Check our estate sale page.
