About Me

My photo
Once a California Gal, now a full fledged Northwest Country Gal. I enjoy gardening,antiquing, spending time with my Husband AKA "Cookman". He is such a good cook. Thank goodness. I would much rather be out digging in the yard and planting roses. He is my Hero and best friend. Just being able to take walks with him is very special to me. I have been cancer free for 7.5 years. It wonderful to be able to spend time together. Go for walks, going to movies, or hanging out at Wiggett's Antique Marketplace, in Coeur d' Alene, ID. Our home away from home. We love the owner's, dealers, and customers. Retirement is a good thing.


Located in Wiggett's Antique Marketplace, in the charming little town of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. One block from the Resort and beautiful Lake Cour d' Alene. The shop has been voted BEST Antique Store in North Idaho the last 2 years.

I thank God for being able to live here. Everytime I drive down town to go to the shop. It is so beautiful. It reminds me of a small town you might see in a movie. In the summer, all the old fashion lamp post are decorated with huge hanging flower baskets. I love it!

Shopping for Girlfriends

Hi girlfriends,
I recently went junking and found the greatest picnic table with benches. It had just the right amount of old blue paint on it. As hard as I tried, it was not going to fit in any of my spaces at Wiggett's Antique Marketplace.
I could not let this one go by without calling my friend Rolane to tell her about the picnic table I found. Rolane hosts a fun show on her farm twice a year, in the summer and and fall. It's called "The Vintage Barn". I could just visualize the table with its old weather blue paint added with some of her other wonderful vintage garden seating, for Vendors and customers to sit and enjoy the Bluegrass music and snack on some homemade goodies made by the Amish Gals.
I'm so glad Rolane was able to buy the set. For more information about the show you can contact Rolane@BarnBarnBaby.com
Keep junking!

Mother's Day Weekend

Well I have had the best Mother's Day! My daughter, Debbie surprised me with a pop-by visit. As I was packing the car to take a load of merchandise to the shop, I heard a voice say, "What are you doing?" After screaming and crying from shock and surprise, I gave her a big hug and kiss.

We have had a great girly weekend. It is like good friends spending special time together. Started with a terrific lunch at a little Bistro in Coeur d'Alene.... soooo good. Then off to shopping and a drive around the lake, not forgetting to stop by Wiggett's Antique Marketplace to see the shop and say hello.

The very best gift I could of ever imagine, not only did she help me with kicking off my blog, she set up my website www.FoxgloveAntiques.vpweb.com Check it out!
