Ready, Set, Go-Spring ?????

20110725_221546000_iOSF866DA48-E281-44F7-83D9-BF89AF0339E9imageGood afternoon. I hope all of you faired well after all that crazy weather. I was scheduled to come up from the eastern shore but I needed to reschedule. But never fear, I’m back on schedule. I’m geared up to transform our Jessup, MD store into a Fresh Spring Haven! Please excuse our fairy dust while rearranging, its a good thing!

Idea for the day!

I had a customer come into the Bishopville, MD store on Saturday. We started to talk about finger vases. The finger vase dates back to 1785. There are many reproductions today that make them affordable for your home. We have some reproductions and antique finger vases in our shops.

The customer shared an idea from one of her friends, her friend uses a finger vase in her kitchen. Her friend puts parsley in her vase, with a little water, stays fresh. Use other herbs too. How pretty and practical. Snip your herbs when you need to cook with them. Put a vase in a bathroom with lavender in it!

Recipe for Day:

Stonewallkitchen.com Bacon, Brie, cranberry relish toast

Sounds good. Just remember I recommend this relish on turkey sandwich with mayo, lettuce, and tomato(and brie)

Craft for the Week

Quick seasonal banner

Supplies:

6 vintage style postcards(these can be repos)

seasonal ribbon

hole punch

These banners can be hung from mantles, doorways, windows, mirrors, endless places!

I like seasonal images. Hole punch card in left hand corner of postcards, thread your pretty ribbon through each postcard.

Wiggle each postcard to where you want to place them.

Cute as a button! Easy project!

Now if you want to add any glitter or embellishments, go for it! Themes are endless!

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.
