Save The Dates!

Hold onto you hats ladies and gents because Almost Gemini (along with our vintage and vintage inspired designs) are about to go on the ride of our lives! This fall and winter we will be all over the place oozing awesomeness and selling greatness. We have more tricks up our sleeves and in our hats then ever before.  Ok, so that might be a little dramatic and adjective happy but that's how I roll!

As we learned in an April blog, I'm a huge Arrested Development fan! I just can't talk magic without giggling and thinking of Gob Bluth! My favorite (part-time) Magician!



 
Gratuitous GOB picture!

 
I love him!

ANYWAYYYYYYYSSSS, I'm going to give you a run down of where to find us as of now (and from my what I remember off the top of my head)! 

September 28 from 9-4 we will back at Horton's of Tipton for their fall market! The French Flea Market was a BLAST. We are totally looking forward to this!


October 10-11 we are excited to be back at the Restyled Barn Sale. The sale is through the 12 but we can only make the preview night and the first day. Make sure to order you "preview night" tickets in advance! You have to pre-order to attend! Click here to order.

November 1&2 is the Indie Arts and Vingtage Marketplace. Once again this will be held at The Fountains of Carmel.

November 7 We are taking part in Special Olympics of Hamilton County Annual Holiday Bizarre.  I can't get the email to open. You're gonna have to wait a minute for show details! WE LOVE THIS SHOW!

November 22-23 Get pumped up for the Hobnob Holiday Market. This year it will be a the Danville Gardens (1307 Cleary Ave-Danville IL) Friday will be the "Making Merry Party" from 6-9pm. Saturday it will be 9-4 (FYI ITS CENTRAL TIME)..Pick early, pick often!

November 30 We are once again excited to be part of the Indie Arts and Vingtage Marketplace. This marketplace also will be held at The Fountains of Carmel. This Market isn't just full of AH-MAZE-ING art and vintage but AH-MAZE-ING vendors! Some of the coolest people I know I met through IAVM

I can honestly say I have NOOOOOOO clue what December looks like! I do know that Mama and The Dadster are leaving after Thanksgiving this year...PARTY AT THEIR HOUSE! WHOOT WHOOT!

I'm still having troubles wrapping my head around the fact that it's going to be labor day! I like fall, LOVE LOVE COLTS FOOTBALL and carving pumpkins. I also know that means winter is around the corner. Every year is the same...I bitch about Indiana for approx. three-four months before spring hits and I fall in love with her all over again!

Mama and The Dadster's 40th anniversary party went off AH-MAZE-ING-LEE! I'm going to have that blog done by this weekend. I'm still awaiting some picture approvals from Mama. Let's just say things got a little CRAY CRAY at the U house!

Don't for get you can always stop by Vintage Shoppes of Carmel @ 301 SOUTH Rangeline and check out our space! Tell Amy- Almost Gemini sent ya!

Summer Highlights-THUS FAR


These are some of AG summer highlights. I'm not wishing my summer away! Exact opposite, I want it to last forever! So, don't go packing away your whites just yet. I heard that it is O.K. to wear them year around. I'm not a fashion plate so you'll have to ask Joan Rivers or Kelly Osborne.



I still am perplexed on how these two got to be the "fashion police". It looks like Joan is carrying Mr. Snuffleupagus on her arm! 


I used a picture of Snuffy in a tuxedo hat. I like to think of Snuffy as a formal I'm formal, yet I'm here to teach the alphabet!. 

ANNNYYYYHOOOOO, the beginning of the summer was jammed packed with markets.

The last market was Horton's Of Tipton French Flea Market. I know I'm just getting around to these pics but I've been busy...doing...well we will get to that later.



No gonna lie...Sis and I aren't frenchy people but we tried to tie in some french flea market. I picked to add yellow. I've been loving this lamps and can't believe they haven't sold yet. Maybe there is a reason. I shall keep them.



We also brought the brass! I can't believe we didn't sell out! Green glass is always in our displays, its one of our go-to-faves!


The theme was "picnicking in Paris". We had some baskets on display. The Hoosier boy tomatoes is now what I use in my garden!


Gratuitous, tomato picture. Isn't summer without Coco's homegrown tomatoes! FYI: We have made 3 batches of sauce, a couple of fresh salsa, ate more BLTs then we can count and more tomato slices then should be humanly possible.

Back to the show!

Here is most of the display. It was well into the second day that I thought about taking these pics! Opps!

What? Ok you asked for it...more pictures of our "harvests".


Some summer squash, zucchini cucumbers and tomatoes. This is just a normal day at the U house!

Last buy not least....



Cabbage... We still have some leftover. I do like me some coleslaw but I LOVE me some fresh coleslaw! SOOOO GOOOOD!

We don't normal do fruit delivers but when I got a call from a very special man, I had to answer. The man who taught me to farm was at the Luthern Heart Hospital. All he had to do was express his disappointment with the tomatoes on his sandwich and I was there!


ANNNNYYYYTHING for my grandpa! I dropped him off a bag of "$10 tomatoes". (His words...I agree with him)


Up next, my bathroom make-over! I'm done with it, I just need to edit the photos!

I'm also still open for room makeover color suggestions. I have painted my walls, I just need to pick new bedding and accents.

It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.
