I began my Hob Nobber blog to show our customers what we have purchased for our upcoming occasional sales... as well as a fun hobby, of course. But if you are a blogger you know that blogging takes a lot of time...taking photos, getting the photos on the computer, writing the posts, reading and commenting on others' blogs etc. All GREAT FUN but it DOES take time.

But I have also been pursuing other interests in the blogging arena. As some of you know, I've held free "workshops" about living the life you desire on this blog.
|LIVING THE LIFE YOU'VE DREAMED ABOUT|
At one point a friend and I were blogging and offering similar workshops, though not online. This has been a continuing interest of mine and also of my friend, Sherrie. We keep finding such great ideas to help us live a fulfilling life that we just want to share them with others. So we've decided once again to blog about these ideas, then offer workshops to share this amazing information. Sooooo... our Blooming Boomers blog is now again up and running with helpful posts to encourage your life to "full bloom". Consequently I won't be offering this kind of workshop on this blog but rather on our BB blog. We'd love to have you come and see what we're up to. In the very near future we will be offering a Give-Away and lots more posts of interest to women ( though not ONLY for baby boomers ) so be sure and subscribe so you get all the good info right in your inbox!
I WILL continue to share my finds of vintage, industrial, and farmhouse wares for our upcoming Hob Nobber sales and interesting stories about the mansion we live in... but don't own. And also a few posts to give you ideas on how to repurpose some vintage items. So here are some ideas for repurposing vintage items that I have in my home right now.
|VINTAGE IRONSTONE GRAVY BOWL AS CANDY DISH|
Yes, my friends have laughed at me over this one. I was offering some candy and someone said, "That's just an old gravy bowl!" But I love it!
