We Moved!

I can't believe it it is May!

"ALL That Jazz" has moved already!

We had a chance to go downstairs.
So we did!

We are really excited about the move!
We increased our space size, and filled it up quick.



We love our little rug we bought.






We have a little closet off of our space .


We spent three hours putting this wall together!
My Niece Sares and I found these cute little, old shutters!
A gentleman wanted to buy them, but we weren't ready to sell them yet.
I asked our shop owner what she thought we could get for them,
if and when we decided to let them go. She gave us an idea on a price.
We went to lunch a few minutes later.
The shop owners husband came into the cafe and told us he had good news
and he had bad news.
The good news was, we made a sale, and the bad news was, it was the shutters!
We thought he was giving us a bad time!
We went back to our space, and guess what? The shutters were gone.

SOLD.

I was distraught! Upset! I coveted them.
Our shop owner sold them to another vendor in the shop.
Unbelievable.
We were speechless, as we didn't have a tag on them, and hadn't decided
to sell them yet.
She called the gal, and she returned them to us, with first option
to buy them when we decided to give them up.
I really do LOVE them, and I would love to purchase them , myself.

Things are selling!

We can pay the rent next month!




Next weekend we are going to do some changes for Spring!
I think it will be really fun, and I can't wait to show you!

I am a big DREAMER!

My daily devotional today.

The stars exist that we might know how high our Dreams can soar!!!


Happy Mother's Day!

Random Thoughts

"All That Jazz" is moving!!!

A space has become available for us to move downstairs.


We are excited to be where all the traffic is.

We have had a first great month.

I mentioned I was overwhelmed.
My work schedule is different eveyweek.
I just try to go with the flow,
but sometimes it just gets the best of me.

Life always has it's ups and downs.

I've been having some issues with constant muscle aches
for awhile now.

Went in for a physical last week.
Just a few minor things.
Lacking Vitimin D and my cholesterol needs to be lowered.

Tested negative for Rheumatoid factor.

Most likely Fibromyalgia.

Started medication a week ago.

Hoping it will do the trick!!!
I will rise above the storm!
I feel very lucky, it could be worse.

Hoof beats in my heart!

How can this sweet boy be such a stinker at times.

Yesterday we started our "getting in shape program."

He didn't think he needed to be on the lunge line.

Cowboy thinks he forgot.

NO! NO! NO!

He did not forget.

He remembered real fast!

It was also time to worm him.

Now that was a challenge.

But we got through it.
Doc noticed he has "scratches" on two of his legs.
His turnout has been pretty wet and muddy.
It should be getting better now since the
weather is getting nicer.
I researched it tonight, and it is common to get it
on white leg markings.
Guess what?
It's on both of his legs with white socks.
So we cleaned and treated it.
This is the first time he has had it.
Rise above the storm and you will find Sunshine!
Mario Fernandez


I am blessed!

Have a great weekend!

Be Good To Yourself

I need to fill my soul with this much loved four legged beauty.
Be yourself truthfully
Accept yourself gracefully
Value yourself joyfully

I 'm having a hard time getting it together these days.
I am feeling overwhelmed.

Forgive yourself completely
Treat yourself generously
Balance yourself harmoniously

I am simplifying my life.
Bless yourself abundantly
Trust yourself completely
Love yourself wholeheartedly

Empower yourself prayerfully
Give yourself enthusiastically
Express yourself radiantly

I'm feeling a bit tarnished, weathered and rusty .
I have been under the weather for two weeks now.
Cowboy made me go to the doctor yesterday.
The diagnosis; bronchitis.
I am on antibiotic's.
Should start feeling better soon.

New Day

Life is just passing by way to fast for me these days.
I used to be a magazine addict.
I don't buy them much anymore, but the colors on
the front of this one caught my eye!

delight;
great pleasure, joy.
Your momma is missing you copper pony.
My hip hurt me a week ago, and I could barley walk for a day.
I am now just able to sleep on that side.
Don't know what I did.
Then I came down with a terrible bug.
Missed one day of work. Luckily I was off the next.
I am feeling better today.
I had been working really hard getting ready for
setting up "All That Jazz."
I think my body is trying to tell me something.
I am listening!

Today I found these pictures on the computer.
I thought they were kind of fun.












I will get myself back on track here soon.
I just have to take one day at a time.
Life is tugging at me to start chasing a few more dreams!!!
Have a great weekend!

Life's Happening

When one door closes, another opens;
but we often look so long and so regretfully
upon the closed door that we do not see the one
that has opened for us."
Alexander Graham Bell



Life is still non stop for me these last few weeks.
I have been working really hard and am
feeling the need to take a break.
But I also know to make something succeed, you need to have
dedication
time
imagination
knowledge
vision
passion
~dream and believe~
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!"
We are going into our space on the 20th.
I've been going through my scrapbook of inspiration.
Here's a few more things I've been working on.



" It's the simple things in life
that bring the greatest pleasure"
Joy's of my life
fluffy cats
Fragrant roses
Sunshine
Dusty's soft nuzzle
Rosie warming my bed
Morning coffee
Birds singing
Cowboy telling me to sleep in


My Loveleigh niece Sares
painted and glittered our name.

I painted an old picture frame that I bought last summer.
We are going to put some chicken wire in it.



Sares and I went scavenger hunting last week and found
some great treasures for our displays!!!
A lovely lady gave us a deal on these items.
bird cage
door with chalkboard
old brown table
chair
$25.00

We have a space 15 x 4 ft.
There are 3 built-in shelves on the 15 ft side.
We are going to turn the door lengthwise and use it
on the top shelf.


The chair is kind of worn, but a cutie.
I painted it.

I think it will be fun to do some displays in the birdcage.


Meet ?!?
Will tell you her name when I post our opening pictures!!!





We will have lost of fun dressing her!!!

Life In The Fast Lane



Life never seems to slow down for me these days!

I finally planted some pansies.
Only to get home and realize they were primroses!
I know the difference, but was in a hurry.
~ Let Heaven and nature sing~

My constant companion!
Lily Bug


A few weeks ago I mentioned that I,
A Cowgirls Grace, Pony Girl, and Loveleigh Treasures
decided we were going to start crafting.

The work has begun!!!
Here are a few of things I have made.

PILLOWS!
I want to thank June at
"Laughing With Angels"

for the rose inspiration!

You really must read her blog!
I didn't have the magazine she recommended,
so I got creative on my own.

love to add BLING!!!


Old lace doilies and chenille bedspreads.
You can't see it in this picture, but the background is
pink with silver threads running through it.



I've done a lot of soul searching and praying about this
adventure.
I believe God has his hand out and is guiding us.




~Take time to smell the roses~



lots of lace

We started hitting garage sales and the Goodwill last summer!
We have lots of goodies stashed away.

vintage bottles & music from old hymnal's

~Go confidently in the directions of your dreams~


filling my heart with songs of worship and praise!

button, button, who's got the button!



One of my favorite songs
by Brandon Heath
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far, beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see


We have decided to rent a little space in one of the
Antique stores.


glistening! sparkling!

Lots of glitter
stamps



~It's A Wonderful Life~


joy; to fill with ecstatic happiness,
pleasure, or satisfaction, to enjoy
great happiness, delight
