Hi my friends…
Went and did a little shopping at the Nashville flea market on Thursday with my son, who just happened to start college yesterday. (thankfully, it’s a local community college where he will attend the first two years and can still live at home)
I found a couple of old lockers for myself and a neat old beautiful green ammo box.
I also picked up a few things for my ETSY shop that I thought I would show you.
There were not a lot of vendors this month, but I still found some pretty neat things.
I will be adding these items to my Amys All Things Home Etsy Shop very soon. Stop by sometime and look around if you have a chance.
Thanks to all who have supported me in this new business venture. I pray that it will be exactly what God wants it to be. I sure have a lot to learn about being a “business lady”.

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!!!
I praise God today that He loved us enough to send His one and only Son to die for our sins.
I praise Him that He is faithful to forgive me when I mess up and that His love for me never ceases.
I am so thankful that He never sleeps and that I can talk to Him anytime I want or need to.
I am so thankful that He is walking this road of life with us.
I am so thankful that I am His child and that He is my Daddy.
What are you thankful for today? Tell Him…

Hello to all of my friends…old and new!
There were so many amazing highlights to our trip to Louisiana a couple of weeks ago.
The company, of course, was the best part.
The food was amazing.
The hospitality was grand.
And the shopping was fantastic!
Becky and her precious (yes, I said precious) husband took me to Canton, Texas, to a huge flea market. Let me tell you that this place was huge… and they kept telling me it was small for August. I will also tell you that it was HOT like no other hot I have ever felt!
The best part of our trip to Canton was that they also took me to the most beautiful shop that I believe I have ever been in. This place was amazing from the moment my foot stepped in the door.
The fragrances were amazing….the sights were beautiful…the people were friendly.
Inspiration was everywhere.
I tried to soak in every little detail because I knew I would not be back for at least a year. (LaurieAnna, I will be back though)
We asked permission to take a few photographs because I wanted to share the beauty with all of you who have never had the opportunity to go. The pictures I took will not do this place justice.
Take a look at just a little of what I saw…
This beautiful lavender greeted us at the door and I put my nose as close to it as I could without looking like a very strange out of town person.
Didn’t I tell you that it was gorgeous beyond measure?
I really want to just take my family and move in.
I also really want LaurieAnna and her talented husband to come to middle Tennessee and open up a shop.
What you need to do now is head over to LaurieAnna's Vintage Home blog and check out her beautiful new farmhouse and take a look around her online shoppe. Really, you have to go over there. And, if you are ever in Canton, Texas, you really must go to her shoppe and see what I saw.
It is truly an experience.
Oh yeah, let me show you one of the things that I brought back to Tennessee with me…
I am totally loving the look and the convenience of this bottle drying rack. Becky had one similar to this one and I loved it, so I had to bring one home with me.
The little chalkboard slate came from her shoppe also. Such fun!
Okay, head on over to LaurieAnna's when you have a few minutes to soak in some major beauty.
