Whistle Stop/Olive Branch

Went to a new place that I had never been to before, The Whistle Stop. It was a really cute shop.

 I got myself this sweet simple whiteware vase.

I thought this little yo yo tag was just precious.

 Be sure to check this shop out here!

 Now a while back, friends Scott, Joan, Paul and myself went to check out a sale in Council Bluffs at The Olive Branch. They were having a backroom sale. I got this neat glass jar. Somebody said I could take the label off but I didn’t want to, that’s part of what I liked about it. Good for storing crafty things in!

I also found this neat hanging candle holder. I have been wanting one and it was marked way down. Haven’t got candles for it yet and not sure where the right spot for it is but I’ll let you know once I get it worked out!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Hi Mandy, That little shop looks so neat. Love the vase, yo yo tag and necklace. And I have just started collecting whisk brooms. Love the red handle on that one. Can't wait to see where your candle holder ends up. Have a Happy Saturday. It's rather warm here so I am staying in and crafting.

  3. Mindy! You should have let me know you were going there, I would have went and met up with you, then we could have met in person. Laurie is such a nice person...did you get to meet her?
