My 75th Post!

Criminy, do I know how to run my mouth or what??
My first post was August 17th of this year,
and today I'm putting up my
75th POST!
Y'all sick of me yet? (don't answer that!)

I don't have some epic , profound post all saved up for the occasion,
just a bit of this-n-that, but most importantly,
a great big old Texas-sized THANK YOU
to all the wonderful new friends I've made through this blog.

And just so's ya know, we use the word "followers"
a lot here is blogland, but to each and every person who deigns me worthy of following,
I think of you more as a friend not yet met.

And in some cases, (TroySweet TEffie...leaving someone out, I just know it!)
I've already gotten to meet you and give you a hug!
Looking forward to doing the same with
many more of you, as bloggy friends make the transition
into the flesh-and-blood, hug-your-neck variety.
I had to chuckle a bit when I went back today and looked at my very first post...

Fiona and Twig is Born

Greetings All!
 Welcome to the misadventures of a budding shop
 owner. My fully formed blog space will be awhile in
 coming, but just a little info....

Fiona and Twig were two pretty special calico cats in my life.
This blog as well as my shop are dedicated to them,
although you'd be hard pressed to find any cutesy cat knick knacks among my wares.
Dont get me wrong, I adore my felines,
but my tastes run more to vintage, industrial, retro, architectural salvage,
French ephemera, etc.
I am a Respiratory Therapist by trade,
a frustrated, wannabe writer/vintage shop owner/erstwhile superhero by night.

Welcome to my humble corner of the web.

I didn't have a single comment on that first post, but did that deter me?
Heck no! I pretty much write for the sheer joy of writing,
it feeds my soul in ways nothing else can. 
I figured at some point someone besides friends and family
might stumble upon me, and until that time
I'd just keep churning out what I love to do best.

And I'll close with a little taste of what's to come later this week...
Y'all remember this super cute rusty iron,
green corner shelf I picked up last month?

It sold pretty fast, and I just recently discovered it in its new home!


I met a fellow dealer yesterday who has an absolutely incredible shop 
just down the street from my antique mall...
turns out one of his compadres grabbed this from my booth 
to use for display purposes in his shop. Coolness!
He and his partner have the most amazing little treasure chest of a store. 
I was sure to snap lots of pics yesterday, 
so look for a post this week on my new-found friends.

My beautiful blogging buddy Jane at
was sweet enough to bestow an undeserved award on me. 
Shoot, if Jane wants to find fabulous, all she has to do is look in the mirror!

Another beauty queen blogger! First Kate, now Jane.
Proof positive that blogging is the best beauty treatment going!
I'm an award free blog these days, but thank you SO much, Jane!
You really should go pay her a visit, she's the mastermind behind
Frugalicious Friday, lots of fantastic, frugal fun!

Until then, have a great day, and I love you all!

If you'll remember my friend I emailed you and told you I tried to leave you a comment but you had the comments turned off! I would have left you a comment for sure. I'm a follower, a fan, and I too consider you a friend. So glad you joined the group and I know you've lots more to share. Keep talking, we're listening...

Kate said...

Hi Anne
Well I am sending my hug to you my friend. So glad you are here adding a splash of joy and sunshine in my day.

Time flies, doesn't it? I love blogging and have met so many new friends. I can't imagine what my day was like before sharing what I did the day before with all of you! It is a great way to say what we have to say whether anyone listens or not, hehe. I have some followers aka friends who comment daily (mostly family) and some new friends who are not family. Comments are appreciated but I am like you, I am writing whether anyone is listening or not. Have a blessed day and happy to know you!
