Tradin' Post Fun!

Happy Wednesday!  I am playing the catch-up game this week and am way behind on everything - including blogging! I will get around to visiting each of you soon, promise!

Took a little trip a couple weeks back to one of my favorite little spots - The Trading Post.  I have always wanted to show you this fun store and highlight a few of my favorite booths.  I felt that I had to grab these pictures really quick - on the fly - because I'm not sure if I was supposed to be taking them. They didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but I was I was trying to do it all "incognito" like so as not to draw too much attention my way. Meanwhile, my daughter is growing increasingly impatient with me and trying to lay her head down on the cart handle, and my 4 yr old keeps asking me (and loudly I might add) "mommy why are you taking pictures of all of this stuff in the store"?  I'm sure it was quite the scene! 

This booth always has some cute stuff in it - I love how it is displayed.  Want to take the silver globe home with me!

Thought these were neat little wooden bowls - really cute stacked together.

Another fun display.  Isn't that a fun game board? And what a sweet vintage apron.

 Again - this dealer has things displayed really well.  I love the little green child's desk and the blue dresser.

I wanted to tell you about a great give-away my sweet friend Leslie is having. She is one of those crafty gals that makes some of the cutest things I have seen, so if you haven't stopped by Glitter and Bliss to enter, do it quick - it ends today!  This cute booth belongs to Leslie and her twin sister.  I happened to stop in one day while they were there adding items and arranging several things - it is chock full of magnets, frames, and home and seasonal decor.  I hope she doesn't mind me posting a picture of it - it's darling!

Leslie's cute magnets!

Wow, I can't believe that the Trading Post is in Jenks! I think I've shopped there before, but just forgot the name. Is is in an old grocery store? I live very close south of the Creek Turnpike!

Thanks so much for stopping by our booth. You are so sweet!!! I can't believe that you highlighted the same booths I adore in the "Trading Post". "The Mud Pie" is my favorite.

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
