I can't think of too many things I'd rather be doing than hunting for treasures, those things that have had a previous life. I love looking in beautiful shops and flea markets and dark , dusty old antique shops. Some of my best finds have been at yard sales. I love taking some one's cast offs and redoing them so they fit my taste and style. I love that very few good pieces are finding their way to the landfills. My daughters and I used to redo pieces and then sell them at Memorial Day ' Spring Fest' , Fourth of July celebration and the Labor day flea market here in our valley. I'm opting out of doing it anymore because I'm tired. It was always such a push to get the furniture painted and things packed into the trailers. We never got to take part in the festivities. I'm sure I will see many pieces that will tempt me but I will just have to use restraint. I'm so blessed because all four of my daughters love to treasure hunt. It's a great time for all.
