Busy day for me!!!

 In just a couple of hours I will be on a plane heading to California to speak at "Launch Your Creativity". This will be an amazing event with talented women and some great speakers that I am really looking forward to hearing. (Cross your fingers and say a little prayer for me please. :)

Even thought I am leaving today, I could not resist grabbing my gal pal Sandie and heading over to this month's Sweet Salvage sale. I missed it last month, and I did not want to miss it again!
This month was fabulous as always!!!
They are even starting to bring in some wonderful large pieces like this chaise lounge.
Industrial was definitely a recurring theme this month! This cabinet was much more fabulous in person.
Like always, they had a very nice supply of vintage suitcases.

I almost brought home this turquoise bucket. I think it would be awesome in a laundry room to hold dry detergent or cleaning supplies.

This dining table and chairs was TDF!!! Ahhh... If only I had a second home!

They have lots of great finds outside too.

This beauty came home with me! I have never seen one this shape. I LOVE it!!!

They even have some lovely jewelry for those us who like a little rustic mixed in with our bling!

I really like this ottoman. 

Great finds are everywhere.

Who could resist picking through all these great little treasures???

Cindy.... this photo is for you my friend!!!

Here we are glowing with the pleasure of another fun morning shopping at Sweet Salvage!!!

In case you don't make it out there this weekend, I have a little secret to share with you.... Because the shop has been so successful, they are having to get a bigger building to hold everyone!! AND... this new building has air conditioning!!! Yeah!!! (If you live here, you know how important THAT is!!)
The building is just a block away and there is more parking in the new location too.
Make sure you visit the Sweet Salvage blog before next month to get the address for their new home.

Well, I'm off to the airport now! Have an awesome weekend my friends!

I love the scale. I saw a green one like it recently, but it was $75. So I didn't bring it home. I'm still pining over it though!
