Over the Weekend

Boy. Do I have a great seller for you to meet today. We are the perfect match. I love vintage. She sells it. Heaven! Everyone, meet Mona.

QUiD: Describe your most memorable weekend (recent or just a fun one you remember).

Mona: I have many memorable weekends. I think the ones I love to reflect on are when I go out treasure hunting. Yes, that is what I call it. I go to estate sales or auctions often. I just love the idea of never knowing
what I might find. What will grab my eye. I love to collect antiques and sell them too. I hate missing a sale, because then I am wondering “what did I miss”.  I think my shop reflects my most ardent passion.

Q: What is your favorite thing about the weekends?

M: My Favorite thing about the weekends are of course the sales and getting out to enjoy the
weather when possible. I love walking by the river. I love to sit and listen to the water gurgling and all the sounds of nature.

Q: What do you do creatively over the weekend?

M: I love to cook mostly during the weekends. I love to plan an nice big Sunday dinner complete with
a homemade pie or cake.

Q: What is your favorite thing to wear on weekends?

M: My favorite thing to wear on the weekends is my Jeans. I am always comfy in my jeans.

Q: What’s the best place you’ve ever visited on the weekend?

M: The best place I ever visited on the weekend would have to be with my grand children.

Over the Weekend

Whimsy is the word when it comes to the beautiful etsy shop, Designs by Vanessa. I came upon her by chance and am so pleased for you to get to know her and her delightful wares. Enjoy!

 

Q: Describe your most memorable weekend (recent or just a fun one you remember).

DBV: A weekend that sticks out in my mind is when my husband and I spent the day at a Kite Festival here in Austin. There were tons of kites that filled the sky and it was such an amazing sight to see. I took my camera with me and got some great shots. One of those shots actually ended up on the local news for a weather photo contest…my 5 minutes of fame!

Q: What is your favorite thing about the weekends?
 
 

 

DBV: When I’m not working, my favorite thing is just hanging out in my pj’s all morning while working on my crafts! I also love dragging my hubby to local bead stores to browse their selections (this is probably my husband’s least favorite thing about the weekend).

Q: What do you do creatively over the weekend?
 
 

 

 DBV: I work full time in the foster/adoption field so I do most of my creative work on the weekends. My two current obsessions are jewelry and paper goods but I do a little of everything.

Q: What is your favorite thing to wear on weekends?
 
 

 

DBV: I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl but I do enjoy getting dressed up for a special occasion.

Q: What do you like to eat on weekends? My husband and I love to try new local restaurants on weekends. Austin, TX has some awesome hole in the wall restaurants. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend Vivo and Polvo’s for tex-mex!

Q: What’s the best place you’ve ever visited on the weekend?
 
 

 

DBV: The great thing about living in Austin is that it is surrounded by lots of great weekend getaway locations. My husband and I try to visit San Antonio at least monthly to do something different and we always have so much fun strolling along the River Walk.
