Holy Cow – where have I been?

It sure had been a busy year for me. I had stuff in four (4), yes 4 local antique malls. If that doesn’t keep you busy besides working in one 4 days a week I don’t know what does.

Anyway – long story short – I moved out of all of the malls and opened my own Antique Mall on February 1st, in Old Town Lafayette, CO.

What happened to The Speckled Goose when I opened Lafayette Antiques & Home Décor? Good question – The Speckled Goose is still where I sell my antiques & collectibles. The Speckled Goose is a dealer inside Lafayette Antiques. I just have all of my treasures inside one store!

You can find our treasures located inside:

Happy January

Hope your year has started off good. We are busy at the ranch, but then when are we not? It is Stock Show time. Boys went to PBR last night, and had a great time.

John is wrestling so that is keeping him busy, and he is having a great time.

What have I been up to? Well I have some exciting news – I am opening a new antique mall in a couple of weeks. I am super excited, but I have a lot of work in the next few weeks. I will be moving out of Homestead Antiques & Rocky Mountain Antiques.

Our new store website address is – http://lafayette-antiques.com

Have a great evening.

Life is like a Mirror

 Have you ever noticed how someone’s else’s attitude can affect your attitude? It is true. When you smile it is contagious, and brightens everyone’s day that you come in contact with.

You just never know what the next person is going through and your smile may be the one thing that they needed most.


Have an awesome day!

Judging Defines You

Yes, we have all done this a time or two. It is human nature, but we do not have to succumb to it.



Have an awesome day!

Weathered Chicken Crate

This is such an awesome idea. I have an old chicken crate and haven’t been able to figure out how to use it in the house. I love this against the brick wall. The colors are awesome!~

Do you have an old chicken crate that you have created into something unique? I would love to see what you created!

Old Weathered Wood Chicken Cage...stuffed with old quilts.

Have a awesome creative day!

Life’s Adventures

 I don’t think that I can add much to this quote. Although life is one adventure after another, and I wouldn’t change it for a minute.

Happy Holidays

I hope you all had a great Christmas with friends and family. We stayed home with just the 3 of us. Nice and quiet. The boys did go ride their horses for a while, while mom napped. :0

I saw  a lot of customers buy furniture for themselves for Christmas this year? How about you? Did any of you purchase new furniture or appliances?

Check out ChoiceHomeWarranty.org for insurance on your new appliances. Or check out their YouTube – https://youtube.com/user/HomeChoiceWarrenty

We didn’t purchase furniture or appliances for Christmas this year, but I did let a customer talk me into purchasing a cabinet at the store. I had been looking at for a while, but you know the old problem, where am I going to put it? And why do I really need it? Well she mentioned that it would be adorable with antique quilts displayed in it as it has glass doors. She was right, and yes I put it on layaway.

It will be coming home with me after the first of the month. I am excited, and can hardly wait to share a picture of my new cabinet with my antique quilts. AWESOME!

Have a great day!

Never too Old to Dream


 We are never too old to set goals or dream. As we get older they may change direction, but we all need to dream to stay young!



Have a great day!
