May 12, 2012


Oh my gosh.....what a gorgeous week we are finally having here on the West Coast!!!!
And to top that off I just had 2!!!! full days in a row (well almost) to work on projects....that is a real rarity!!!
Can't ever thank my family enough for being so patient and understanding with me as my "projects" always seem to take over every square inch of living space---the garage, to the kitchen, to the dining room, to the family room, to my art room, to the basement, to my husband's office, to the backyard, to the bedroom...you get the idea!!!!!
 I am so blessed to have three wonderful sons and an amazing husband who are always there to help me.....from lifting heavy furniture, picking stuff up off the road for me, going thrifting with me, trying on jewelry and aprons for me, and on and on!!!
You know your kids "get you" when they finally get their drivers license and come home with "junk" in the back of their car saying "I saw this on the side of the road and knew you would like it"!!!
I love them all "beyond words"....
Happy Mother's Day to all my blogging friends!

PS....I see these pictures are labelled with my old business name "junkdreams"....how many names  have I used?  Let's see....there was junkstyle, then junkdreams, then vintagedreams, then rust & ruffles, and now it's just rust.....my businessman husband says it really isn't good for marketing to keep changing your business name....oh well....I'm so not a "businesswoman" anyways..much too flaky for that!!!

Aren't we lucky. When the West Coast is sunny it is an amazing thing. We come out of our homes in droves and soak it all in.
Too funny about the kids. My boys are 28 and 25 and the eldest just brought an old cradle/planter over and put it at the side of the house. I don't know where he got it from since I haven't seen him since he put it there. He told his brother not to tell me, just to wait until I found it there!! What a great surprise. I love it.

ha ha Janis...I was just wondering that as well. About the names and lost track. I'm not as gutsy as you with the name changing, but 16 years of one name is a little too long to change it at this rate.
You are soooo blessed to have a supportive family that encourages and is there for you in allowing you to do what you love so freely. What a beautiful addition your creations are to each person that has one in their home. I still love my one I purchased at AA/JMS years ago as well as thank you gift you created for me. They are both treasured and are together displayed on my dreaming of PARIS wall in our hallway. :)
