Ladies Day Apart with Lysa TerKeurst, Part I

Decorating Restrooms for a Women's Event (or Wedding)

Most of the time I blog in real time, but back in April I wasn't blogging much.  So today I'm sharing a post from a yearly event we host at my church, Calvary Bible Church in Derry, NH.  We call it "Ladies Day Apart" and it is an one-day event (you attend either Friday or Saturday) held over 2 days.  I think we had 1,600-1,700  women attend this year - a huge number for a Christian Women's event in New England.

Brimfield Fair - The Saga of the Perfect Crate

On Saturday, I spent the day at Brimfield Fair in Massachusetts. I went alone, and was probably one of the only loners there. I was on a budget, brought cash, and I was hoping to find a good deal on one of the few items I was in search of. One thing I soon realized, there are not too many bargains at Brimfield Fair. The prices seemed to be consistent with most of the antique shops in my area. I do a lot of browsing at antique shops, but do most of my shopping at yard  sales and such, and love to find something similar to an expensive antique store find for a few dollars.

White Chippy Rusty Stool

My search for a chair-side table is finally  over. If you know me at all, you know that I can look for the perfect piece forever. Once I have an idea in my mind, I won't settle for something else, and I can be very patient. I have gone well over a year in search of a hutch for a space in my kitchen. My biggest obstacle - price. I won't pay a lot for almost anything. So I search Craigslist, go to yard sales, Goodwill, and keep my eye out on the side of the road.
