It is so beautiful......love the way it looks so chippy, and sparkles.....the muted tones of the silver is just the best. When I see it in a store it just beacons, and I usually end up buying it all. Hence, these pictures..... Just wondered if anyone else sees it that same way. Passion number 2, Mercury Glass...... OOooooooooo, Lauri

Welcome to wonderful......Antiques in Old Town, Lilburn, Georgia is the most darling little shop in the cutest little town you ever saw. I have frequented this little store so many times. It is just to die for. A great old store with 7000 square feet of the best stuff. We saw Cheryl Alexander, a dealer here at Lakewood last week and she told us Rowann, the owner of the store had started a blog. Please check them out at Antiquesinoldtown.blogspot.com. And if you are ever in Lilburn you must go see all the darling displays and cool old stuff. So today Lulu and I just had to go see what we were missing. Of course, I wanted all this doll furniture and the doll. I was so excited, the picture is blurry, sorry. I may just have to go buy it all and work on my photography....... The wonderful thing about this store is all of Rowanns' creativity and decorating and everything is old.....Love it, one of my favorite shop in Georgia. Cheers, Lauri and Lulu

Today I stopped by Junebug's to pick up some shams Katie was monogramming for me. Oh My Gosh, aren't they "to die for?!!!!!" I love them. You know I'm all about that white on white thing........ I got these wonderful white linen shams in an antique store last year and just decided they would look better monogrammed. And they do!!!!! Thanks, Katie and Deanna.
If you are ever in the Alpharetta area you must stop by and see all the great gifty things they have that can be monogrammed. Or check out their website and order something, you won't be disappointed. www.junebugsdesign.net

We are fortunate to live in the Atlanta area for a number of reasons. Twice a year the Merchandise, Apparel Marts and Inforum become THE MARKET for buyers/exhibitors all over the country. We love to go because we're
a. masochists. We LOVE to troll through 3 18-story buildings looking at the Mother lode of consumerism.
b. masochists. We HAVE to get our creative juices flowing by trolling up/down escalators in 3 18-story buildings looking at displays.
c. masochists. We NEED to see why we are so lucky to be junkers and have one-of-a-kind objects.
d. masochists. We MUST sample every kind of morsel & tidbit in the FOOD temporaries. This usually takes place AFTER we've had lunch and invariably leads to unexplained time warps lasting up to 2 hours.
I ran into an old friend from college (UGA... GO DAWGS!). Katherine was helping her brother hawk his fabulous BBQ sauce. Anyone who is breathing in Atlanta knows Low Country Barbeque. Bennett Brown's business has grown from a tiny start-up to a full-blown catering enterprise, bricks-&-mortar 'Q places ( new restaurant in Johns Creek), and now BBQ Sauce at the retail level! Yum Yum. check it out. thanks for the fab tastes!!!!Once we were
BOY-OH-BOY did we hit the jackpot yesterday! The artist is Tom Finks of Primitive Twig. He & his wife, Marcia, are metal artists from New York City. These dolls are made of Baby doll heads(!), antique tins, found objects and vintage bits and pieces. Lauri is trying to secure a position as their 'head' vendor! We told him he'd be a HIT at Marburger!!! Blogistan...hold onto your spice cans! We present Spice Girls!
lulu's score The Artiste and lulu.Please check out their web site. They've been creating these wonderful dolls for 18 years! We're totally inspired and fired up about JUNKIN' and REPURPOSING, & BBQ Thanks Bill & Bennett! xo lulu

Today I got some neat old watch faces and findings in the mail that I got off ebay......so I felt the need to make some more necklaces. This is so addictive, I told Lulu she had created a monster......the possibilities are endless......There is just no end to what you can put on one. I guess I really got inspired when I actually sold some. I got a small rusty knob off a water spout and drawer pull that's coming up next.......Just call me the mad professor..........So take a look and let me know what you think. Cheers, Lauri

I truly feel this is what birthdays are all about friends, family and having fun......... and Gin of course. Cheers, Lauri
