GROW YOUR BLOG 2014

 I've joined the Grow Your Blog party with Vicki at 2 Bags Full. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and grow your blog! Thanks, Vicki, for sponsoring this par---taay once again!




So let me introduce myself. My name is Sandy and I'm a wife, mother of two grown and married "children", and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren! I mean BE-YU-TI-FUL!  I'm shamelessly bragging here!

Anyway, I blog about my hobby/business called Hob Nobbers. I work (' play at '  is a better description ) with two friends ( our picture is on the right sidebar ). We collect vintage and antique treasures, collectibles, and repurposed items and sell them at two occasional sales a year. On my blog I share the treasures I've found, my adventures in "picking",  decorating with "old stuff", and  give updates about our upcoming sales. Below are a few of our "fun finds".




 I also add tidbits about our lives living in a 49 room historical mansion where we live and work as Resident Directors. And this is just PART of the house! Yeah, we're still enjoying living here after 23 years!



I have also  offered  FREE online workshops. One workshop I gave was titled, "How To Live Your Dream Life Now". Currently the workshop I'm offering is about "Living Intentionally".  You can follow along at your own pace. It begins here. I'd love to have you join in and let me know if you do.

Oh, and I DO share some family fun, maybe a recipe or two, books I've read, and definitely ideas about organizing! So it's a bit of everything, I guess!

So hop on over to 2 Bags Full to connect with many more blogs! Go here to see!

  6. Hi Sandy,

    I'm visiting from the Grow Your Blog party. It is so nice to meet you. Your home is lovely. If only to live in a mansion! Actually, I grew up in a Victorian home and miss it so much. I plan to look around a bit more and then be on my way to visit the others. I do hope you will stop by for a visit and enter my giveaway. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs – Donna

  21. Reviewing being a newbie blogger I missed some minor details like making comments... But Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party entries are 600 bloggers. My reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio 24 hours left to go now I just review at much as I can. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
