Back from our Honeymoon!

I'm glad to be back!! I have taken a long break from blogging because I have been busy getting married! Brian and I were married at the beginning of May. It was a beautiful wedding and all the planning and saving were worth it!

Now I am excited about getting back to blogging and working on a multitude of exiting home improvement projects! I'm also excited about learning to use my new camera which I bought for the wedding. It's a Canon Rebel Xsi-SLR! My friend, Amy, took pictures of us during the wedding--which helped us a lot. I get the camera back this week. So for now I will show you some pictures of our Honeymoon in Historic Guthrie, OK which I took with my old camera.

This is the Stone Lion Inn in Guthrie, Ok. This Inn hosts Murder Mystery Dinners. It is a magnificent house, however, it looked like their was some renovations going on. We were not able to tour the inside on this visit, but we plan to come back.

These are some of the beautiful historic homes in Guthrie. Unfortunately,I didn't get the best pictures. These are only a couple of houses. We had a great time and loved the peaceful little town.

My "Shabby Chic" Booth in a Vintage Mall

Hi, everyone! I have been busy this month working on items for my booth in a vintage mall! These are some pictures I took in a rush recently--sorry about the quality... I really would like to buy a better camera...Maybe I'll sell enough stuff to do that this year...one can dream.

My booth is in the Vintage Market Place here in Midwest City, OK. I am booth # 111 and I am selling home decorating items with a Romantic Cottage, Shabby Chic touch. I have added a lot of hand painted items.

The Vintage Market Place is a really cool kind of business. They have just opened this really cute Tea Shop in the back. It's a really nice place to go and spend a Saturday visiting. I have tried to update my Etsy shop as well www.TheThriftyRomantic.etsy.com. I have always had an entrepreneurial drive in me. But mostly right now I'm trying to help with our up coming wedding. Anyway, I am only including items in my shops that I would like to have in my home. If I end up not selling a lot of this stuff it will end up in my bedroom, guest bedroom or craft room. Thanks for visiting!
