About Us

My photo
Southern, California, United States
My sister and I are "Annie Louise". We live in sunny Southern California. Ever since we were kids our mom would take us to estate sale and garage sales. So I guess it is only natural that we still both love to go to garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores--- nothing more exciting than the thrill of the hunt and the find!! Our style is a cross between rustic, shabby chic and beachy. We are both new to blogging, but have decided to start our own blog. We hope you find this blog interesting and come back to visit often. Thanks for visiting, Jackie and Jeanette

A Few Garden Pictures Before the Rain Hit

Hi everyone -- Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Here in Southern California, it has been raining--pretty hard at times.  I thought I would go out and take some pictures of my (probably) last roses for the year before the rain hit and smashed them.

I just had to cut them and bring them into the house.

I have decided that I am going to buy a couple more roses this year, not sure where I will put the plants, but I love fresh cut flowers in the house.   I just adore this little girl relaxing in my garden under the shade of a lush jasmine bush and a mango tree. 

And there is just something about a stack of worn bricks that I love--ooooooh the possibilities!

Wishing you all the best!

Madison (Jackie's daughter)

Madison (Jackie's daughter) (and my helper with this blog) is a real earthy girl, you know jeans, t-shirts, flip-flops and a little make-up.  Well here she is all dressed up for a friends wedding.   She had a great time, danced the night away. 

Jackie's son Halloween outfit

Hi everyone,
  Ok here are some pictures we took with our new camera.  The pictures are of Wyatt (Jackie's 18 year old son) and his James Bond 007 outfit for halloween.  The cigarettes are actually bubble gum cigarettes--good boy Wyatt :)

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of Bond, James Bond--I mean Evans, Wyatt Evans :)

Hey I think I did it - if you see this on our blog--I DID IT (with the help of Madison) I posted pictures from our new camera--yipee!!!

The Orange FleaMarket

Hi everybody,
  Boy is it hard to get around to post anything--my hats off to all of you who do it much more frequently than I do :)  Anywho, Annie Louise had a fun and successful day at the Old Towne Orange Flea Market.  Thanks for all the kind comments.  My sister, Jackie, had to work, however other family members stepped up and really helped out.  Thanks to John, Wyatt, Madison and Solange--I could not have survived without you all.  Jackie (as far as we know) and I will be doing the Orange flea market again at their special show on Saturday, November 27 and then the Jamestown Village Flea Market in Tustin, CA on Sunday, November 28th.  Having said that and glancing at my calendar---I better get crackin' on all my "projects".  Hope you all have a great week.  (Someday I will get some pictures on my new camera-and attempt to post them-I promise------but don't hold your breath  lol :)
Take Care,

Orange, California Flea Market

Well--finally, my sister and I signed up to do the flea market in old towne orange, this saturday.  We have been trying for several months to get our schedule correct so that we could do this flea market, and it finally worked out.  However, my sister has gotten a last minute call to work on Saturday, so now I will be doing it alone :(  In case you haven't discovered my sister and I are practically tied at the hip, always have been probably always will be.  So if any of you are out and about Saturday, Nov. 13th from around 8:00-4:00 stop on by the flea market--I would love the company :) 

Oh, also I have a new camera, but computer inept that  I am, I don't know how to download the photos yet.---Madison (my neice) is extremely busy with College and homework, her dog, her two cats, working, and having a little time to hang out with her friends......... so I feel terrible asking for her help, maybe one day I will attempt it by myself ---pray that I don't blow up my computer and/or camera or that I can find where the downloaded pictures even go on my computer--such trials :)
Have a great week!!
