I made these little shadow boxes for my Mother-in-law for Christmas! Each little shadow box has a picture and name of one of her grandkids (two of them are my rug rats). I have so much fun making these and hope to make more of them soon to list on etsy very soon.
You can just sit these little boxes on a shelf or hang them anywhere! ;)

Most small towns don't offer much in the way of art or entertainment! In a small town just down the road from me in Eads, Colorado you will find quaint little shops as well as a wonderful art gallery. It is called Artists Of The Plains and has wonderful works of art by local artists! If you ever have a chance to get to southeast Colorado, you should stop in and have a peek at this wonderful place!
I don't know why, but lately I have been into taking photos of creepy dolls! Here are some that I've recently snapped. I am thinking of having them printed up and selling them in my etsy shop - http://www.lanisvintage.etsy.com
What do you think?

I live in a very small town, so if I want to go shopping I have to drive to surrounding little towns! One place that I love to visit is in Eads, Colorado. The name of the quaint little shop is called Thursdays-On-Maine. It was started by a good friend of mine Cindy Perry, and it is a shop that offers retail/resale items! People for the Eads community and surrounding communities rent booths and offer a wide varity of gifts, home decor, vintage items, jewerly, bath products, food...you name it you can find it at this cool little shop! If you ever find yourself in southeastern Colorado you shouldn't miss stopping at this fun little shop, located on Maine Street in the wonderful little town of Eads!
Oh yeah...I have a little booth as well! ;)

Kit Carson, Colorado 80825
You'll quickly develop an affection for this mix of vintage goods, hand crafts, home decor and jewelry. Pay me (Lani Robertson) an off-the-road visit. For more information please call (719) 688-3262 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As you're traveling Highway 287 through eastern Colorado, you will see an endless expanse of prairie and sky...and occasionally a town so small you can drive through it in the time it takes to blink once, maybe twice.
But is is here where that old adage becomes true - if you blink you'll miss it. If you close your eyes and mind to the idea that something very special could be lurking among the buildings on Main Street, nestled in residential areas or found in barns on the edge of town, then you really will be missing out!
We invite you to venture off the beaten path and explore some of the specialty shops in the area. You may find yourself having so much fun you'll decide to spend the night in a bed and breakfast or guesthouse!
Regardless of your final vacation destination, we want to help you enjoy every mile of your trip! So put your foot on the brake...your vacation begins here!
