Vintage Cosmetic Set

Vintage Cosmetic Set

  One of the things I love about shopping thrift and or vintage shops is the ideas I get from just looking around. I tend to think of things in a display mindset. What could I do with this? What do I already have that I could pair with this? More often then not I can come up with something. I gathered some of my cute vintage items and created The Vintage Cosmetic Set that includes nail polish, lipstick, bobby pins, tortoise shell plastic hair forks, costume daisy necklace, and a hand crocheted pink doily. I can imagine displaying
End of day treat!

Mom & Daughter Day

Just like her mom, Jessica has a love for DIY driven by a sense of frugal that puts even me to shame.  Her husband Kory, loves to see the fun things she brings home, puts her touch to, and glad she gets her projects done pronto, unlike her mom.  So naturally our most recent Mom & Daughter day involved the HWY 141 Garage Sale again this year! Like always we write our list, plan our trip and start the day with coffee.  This year we decided to start in Ogden and head West. Bopping around from town to town

So Far So Great

It’s amazing how quickly time flies when you’re having fun! We feel so at home in Ogden, like it was meant to be. The community has been very welcoming. We love the word-of-mouth advertising from Made to Gaze right here in Ogden and one of our favorite stores, Country Blessings in rural Jefferson. And that’s not to mention the individuals who continue to recommend us to their friends and family. We’re noticing some people returning for their 2nd and 3rd visits with their friends at their side. I love getting to know our repeat customers! We’re over the moon at how much

20 Days

We’re finally closing the book on Renovation!  Words just cannot describe all the thoughts, mental and physical feelings,  the highs and lows of emotions and checkbook balances.  “What a Ride”! Over the next 20 Days: We will have some amazing family events.  Sam & Jeff will welcome their new baby into this world, I get to celebrate my Birthday, Jess & Kory celebrate the purchase of their home with an Open House Party and Bill will welcome hugs from the kids on Father’s Day. Bill will finish some things around the building. I will continue to get the store all ship shape

June is Coming Fast

Hello everyone!  I realized today it’s been quite awhile since I posted. April turned out to be a busy month for us.  My brother got married and we attended three baby showers for our daughter and son in law. It’s so hard to believe our first grandchild is due in just 4 weeks. As far as the store goes we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  In the next week or two I will start moving in!  Ahhh! I’m so excited! So, as soon as I can get organized and spend some time

My Number One Glue

Today I wanted to tell you about my number one glue!  My husband, Bill. When this all started my good friend asked me if my husband was on board with my business adventure.  I acknowledged he was.  Lately, I have realized what that really means. Bill works a full time job, spends every evening working in the shop after working all day, rarely gets to enjoy a home cooked meal, endures far more aches and pains than I do, has to listen to me, a great dad to all our kids, makes sure all our bills are paid at home, takes care of so much

Quick Update

Progress seems a little slower these days.  We focused our attention on getting the apartment projects done.  New appliances were delivered last week, Austin installed new cabinet hardware, bathroom floor installed, and we are almost done painting.  Wow! Painting! A tough job!  The ceilings are high and there is trim everywhere.  I can honestly admit I was scared climbing up the ladder to 12′ ceilings. On a funny side, there are 26 steps up to the apartment and I might have worked off a few pounds in certain areas going up and down. My hips are telling me all
