Sicky icky and trying to Return to Junking & Selling

Gosh, I have been away from my blog for such a long time.  Forgive me dear Friend's for disappearing - I had some old health issues that raised up the last few months so I had to take the time to recover.  I admit that this time as I get older it is harder to recover quickly.

I have been off line and upon getting into my email account I was so amazed to find emails from dear fellow bloggers asking what happened to me, where was I?  Please know that I am so grateful, so grateful....that tears want to start just thinking of your thoughtfulness!

I have been Blessed that Gary and Charlie have been selling my items at the Nashville Flea market and my store that Charlie and I have.  As an update I am able to keep my flea market love going with Gary's work but Charlie and I decided the store is too much for me now.  So we will be closing up the store.    I am very Grateful to have such wonderful guy freinds/pals!   Thank you with all my heart Gary and you Charlie. 

Hope to have my strength up soon to be getting back to work.   As Being so sick is sooooo boring!   Patience I am learning...hard lesson to rest for this old gal (huge grin)
Cheers, love, blessings to you all!

Antique BED BENCH Trash to Treasure

Found another old bed no one wanted (found at Nashville's Antiques monthly Flea Market)....except me of course.  Cost $20.  I snatched it up as I make benches out of em.
BEFORE with about 80 years of dirt and dust
One of those old solid wood beds that is just about unusable nowadays as it is what is known as a three quarters size bed. Bigger than a twin but smaller than a full size bed.

Left with its old original worn paint.  For the lover of farm primitive. 
The seat area is made of different old bed slats

Now to load it take to my store as today is my day to open.
Cheers!  cindykay as nostalgia*gal

GIVEAWAY a FABULOUS Daphne Nicole Purse!

A darlin Gal I met sometime ago Daphne Nicole makes the best purses out of vintage fabrics Velvets (my fav) old lace, ribbon fringe, gorgeous cowhides, leather, antique lace, etc.   She is having her first giveaway to celebrate Opening her web site Daphne Nicole on line Boutique
Business is super duper slow right now with what is going on after the Historic Floods in Nashville so I spent my time at my Brick Store "HILLS CHAPEL ANTIQUES" moving and changing huge to small pieces of furniture.  I am sure anyone with a store knows and does that kind of work. 
Change one thing and you end up moving so many other items.  Heavy items, so needless to say I am so sore today.  When oh when will I learn?  .....probably never (HUGE GRIN)

So off to making another antique bed bench.  All the time wishing I made small stuff.
Cheers, Blessings PLUS Happy Selling and Hunting to fellow dealers!

Antique Stores Grand Openings some Fun this Weekend

With so much tragedy (horrible flooding) going on in Nashville - I for one am so thankful for the Sun coming out and drying us out.

I am also looking forward to this weekend shopping.... a New antique store is about to have a Grand Openings in my area of Nolensville.  I could use some fun- after this past week of flooding rain. 

I am still working on Dog Tornado Training in a closet.

I have trained them to immediately come running after me with a certain call I give for a tornado about to touch down. 
Gives me some peace of mind during an emergency!  I would rather loose my stuff than my dogs.
Here is a pic....granted a terrible one... of all three of my rescued dogs in mom's (me) packed closet looking at me. 
From Shiloh

Shiloh is the pup of the bunch.  Starved by a farmer so I removed her.  I was going to try and find her a new home but fell in love with her.
Chelsea my mixed hound found me.  Someone had taken a base ball bat to her.  She recovered.  She has a sour look on her face in the picture waiting for her reward as I was making them wait.
Charlie the Maltese someone dumped, I kept him because he is such a joyful little guy.
Cheers from my family!

besides shopping....there are also great places to eat -the popular BBQ South Side Grill and a great bistro near by.  Village Antiques (Grand Opening, on Saturday the 8th), The Three French Hens, The Roost are also fantastic stores in Nolensville. 
So come on by and see me...I could use some hugs!
Cheers, cindykay as nostalgia*gal at Chapel Hills Antiques.

Nashville and Surrounding area Flooding We are all OK

Letting everyone know that we are OK.  Our home only had slight damage from this weekends storms.  13 inches of rain in two days, never saw anything like it. 
Elect power and INTERNET was lost after a scary lightning storm.  Only flooding I had was into my converted three car garage and my stand alone garage.
I was so Blessed that was the extent of the damage along with my drive way.  My neighborhood flooded two houses down!  Along with huge downed trees. 
Here is a link from UTube that shows the major highway I 24 and the flooding. 
this link shows the house floating down the freeway and crashing from cbs news I think.
This link shows the same area Rescue of a trucker.
Gary one of my partners had gone up to Green Hills and this is his route to get back.  I called him on his cell phone and told him why he was stuck in traffic.  He had no clue.  He managed to turn around after sitting 4 hours in that backed up traffic.

With so many tornado touch downs and warnings it dawned on my that my baby Shiloh (the black dog) is new and I had not trained her as of yet- to follow me into the only safe place which is my closet.  With cookies, my camera, plus my cell phone during one of the tornado take cover warnings we went in and practiced.  Here they are are looking at what??!!   I have them sit/stay for at least 15 mins.
From Shiloh
The brown one is Chelsea, have had her for 8 years now.  A rescue dog that was beaten terrible.  The small white one is Charlie the Maltese that was dumped and made it to my house and Shiloh the black dog that I removed.  Her story is on the side page if you want to read it.

The devastation up in different area's -heart breaking and there are still rescues (people trapped in their homes) going on as I type this.  So many deaths that it is upsetting to be typing this.  We are going up tomorrow to help out with the Red Cross. 

So to my Friends and family, I am posting from my Verizon cell phone and hope to have home internet back soon.
Lots of love and hugs,

Nashville Fairground Flea APRIL 2010

I woke up Monday to an email from a friend Saying " Hey ck (my nickname) someone has your Nashville Flea booth in their blog" So I check......It is none other than a popular blogger Sassytrash

Sure enough...there is mine and Charlie's booth in picture #6 and #7. HOW FUN is that?!! I loved all the extra pictures she took of other spaces as I just did not have time.
What can I say other than I was tickled to death that someone liked our booths enough to take pics!

Cheers, happy hunting and selling cindykay
