I am pretty darn thankful that I can consider my thrifting hobby/addiction as a separate thing from everyday shopping. Since I sell a lot of the items I find treasure hunting, I can always use the money from sales to buy a few treasures for me. It’s great to have a hobby that for the most part pays for itself. I certainly can’t say that about beekeeping. My partner in crime and I are still on a bit of a break from that. I’m not saying we are done with it. We are just on a break! I was thrilled last weekend when I discovered a new thrift store. I was doubly thrilled when I learned that proceeds go towards the local animal shelter. WIN WIN!! The good and the bad are they are only open on Saturdays. Good, because I can’t go every day. Bad because I can’t go every day.  My first trip there was a great success. I found the cutest Christmas decorations! Just thinking about it makes me want to go to a thrift store right now. ERG! If you want to see my latest treasures click here to see them on my blog Pollen Patch.

Rita Farmer knows exactly how hard it is to break into the movie business. Acting was the big dream that brought her out to L.A. in the first place. And while she never made the red carpet, that big dream did turn into a modest profession that kept her and her son afloat. So from time to time she’ll lend her talents as a favor.

Kenner and Lance de Sauvenard, heirs to a timber fortune, don’t really need a favor to make their art film, but since Lance is dating Rita’s sister, Gina, there’s no way for Rita to worm her way out of a read-through. Gina is all for the project–or at least her new boyfriend–and she goes with Lance to scout locations on his family’s land holdings in the Northwest. When they don’t return as planned and flood waters start to rise, Rita can’t help dashing into the wilds to bring her sister home, and when foul play becomes more and more likely, her sometime lover, George Rowe, is right on her heels.

Smart, spirited, and way too devoted to her sister for her own safety, Rita Farmer shines in Elizabeth Sims’s ON LOCATION, the third in this stellar series.
