Daily Deal and talks of a retreat

WOAH. How is it Thursday already!? This week is flying by!  Work is crazy busy. That's helping.

Sorry I don't have anything new to show you today. Last night Tara and I went to see some people about using their house for the crafting retreat we are planning for this Fall. They live right up the street and have the most amazing house. It could seriously be a bed and breakfast, so picturesque and perfectly comfortable.  They were intrigued by our idea and said they would think about it.  I wanted to give you a bit of info too since I haven't really mentioned it here on the blog before now.

Tara and I are thinking of having a Friday - Sunday retreat this fall, where one fee would cover the cost of your lodging, all meals, 5-6 crafty projects (some jewelry too) that incorporate Vintage things like buttons, keys, hankies, a trip to a local antique mall, and we would provide transportation to and from the airport or train station for people coming from afar.

We have a few project ideas in mind already. We'd make some locally favorite fare such as Chicken Riggies,  We'd have a fun trip to the antique mall which has about 80 vendors in one building.
The best part would be hanging out with about 8 other crafty women who enjoy what we enjoy- vintage. crafts. jewelry. antiquing. eating good food.   The house where we are hoping to stay is close to our own homes, and has tons of space. Theoretically we would all sleep there, eat there, craft there. It's a gorgeous home with a picturesque backyard filled with gardens, a koi pond, small birds and wildlife, beautiful flowers, a sweet patio.... Even though this area doesn't have a whole lot to offer in the way of entertainment, I think it's a nice place to come and relax for the weekend.

There are lots of details that we'll still need to work out. But we're thinking this would happen either late September or early October.

Tomorrow bright and early, I am heading out for Milwaukee.  Here's Thursday's daily sale for you- enjoy!
