Welcome! My name is Heather Joy. My passion for being creative began earlier than I can remember. I love all things involved with home decor, vintage, fabric, and paper. Through blogging, I hope to inspire you to craft.
Last Friday morning, I found myself standing in the rain waiting in line for an estate sale to open. There were easily forty people crammed into this front yard, ready to get inside and slap sold tags on pieces. Chris does this all the time, but for me, I hadn't been in such a competitive estate sale environment. Once the door opened names were called from the "list" (that Chris had to stand in line for the day before for two hours) and we rushed in. Quickly running around looking for big pieces, but in the rush to find the "good" items there was no time to find anything. It was such a panicky feeling, not one that I will likely repeat again. Lucky for me, Chris loves this type of thing and relishes finding the good item. Chris found three great pieces and off we went to another sale.
At this next sale, I was able to shop at a leisurely pace and I found these two gems!
I find that I'm much more likely to find good items, while taking my time, rather than rushing through first in line.
