The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me

While creating a treasury ( a space with 16 places to show Etsy goods ) I came across a lovely little tune that reminded me of lovers, rainbows and me. It is the words to the famous RAINBOW CONNECTION by

Kermit the Frog

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbow's are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Where To Shop

I have been buying vintage since I was 20 years old, so anywhere I go I try to find a thrift shop or vintage shop. I just love it. I remember working and volunteering in the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Thibodaux. Oh what fun it was to find a rooster cookie jar, a comforter, earrings or old telephone. Since that time I shop at another Habitat for Humanity Restore in Mandeville, Louisiana. What a find it was. The warehouse is full of furniture and clothes, household items and antiques. I will often break for an estate sale as I drive through a country town. There is nothing more fun than the thrill of the find!
