A least that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. A new antique mall named Reliques Marketplace has opened here in Vancouver, and long story short, I now have a booth space there. (Of course I still have my sweet... Continue reading

Thanks Kaye! The sign was featured in a post back on April 27, 2012 (I think!) but it was during a short time period where I left typepad and tried Blogger for hosting my blog, so the photos don't show any longer... :-( Anyway, it used to hang in the dining room when I lived in Camas. Now, it's PERFECT on the covered patio!!!
Thank you for asking, Kathy....Certainly you may use the image! Hope it makes you smile each time you see it!

Thank you so much Katherine and LindaSonia! I'm happy you like it! Tracey
Thanks girls! I forgot to share in my post that not only is the green scale and potting bench perfect, but did you all notice the patio itself? At some point in time, long ago, someone painted it green! Later, someone else painted it grey! Now, it is a weathered peeling perfect patio with greens and greys! Tracey
Thanks everyone!!! I am really enjoying my yards and I LOVE that you are all enjoying my posts!!!! Lori, it made my day to know you see me as "real" because sometimes I feel like I come off a little goofy, or dorky, but it's who I am! Tracey

I told you that my home is on a corner, and I shared this post about the original-covered-patio-only-usable-entertaining-space back patio area here. This patio is actually behind the house, and you get to it either by going through the kitchen... Continue reading

Thanks Nancy! Yes, my real estate "career" is going great! I am what is called an Associate Agent with Redfin, so I tour people through homes, sit at inspections and run open houses...things like that. I LOVE that I control my schedule, and I work with great people! Of course, I still do my etsy and vintage booth space too.

I've been MIA, I know, for the most part, for quite a little while, I know. I'm back! Today I am excited to share my latest big project with you...my backyard. It is still a bit of a work in... Continue reading
