Another Barn House find! See why it's hard not to spend money there? This will make dealing with laundry so much easier, don't you think!?! Made by this fabulous lady. Wait till I show you a sweet little vintage folding table from their Tickled Pink booth!
She has the most adorable accent, and you couldn't meet a kinder, helpful, more adorable person than her! I will definitely look forward to seeing her at more shows!!! This adorable striped chair came home with me. I only wish I'd grabbed up a few of her beautiful lace and linen pillows, too. Next time. . . My husband even raves about how comfortable it is. Always a plus!More loot. The two cottage pictures were from Sylvi as well. I'll have to post better pictures once I get them hung. There's a cellophane bag full of vintage millinery, a pretty crepe paper flower garland, some vintage silk ribbon and a fun party hat. The piano bench was from Aleta's booth. Her husband was so sweet and helped me load it into the car. What a gentleman! I loved their stuff and would've happily bought more had the pockets been deeper. If you take a peek at this post, you'll see why!
What a treat to finally see Deb and Bob and the magic they perform.
It's funny how I still missed seeing so many cool things until just now looking at the pictures I took. Love the rounded windows behind my candelier.
Anyhoo, what do you think of my find? I love, love, love it! Now to find the perfect spot for it! We do have a tiny cottage, ya know. High ceilings help, though. This spot on our porch works for now (neighbor's house in background).
I can't wait for fall to twine it with some bittersweet and maybe even put mini pumpkins where the candles go. Wouldn't that be cute?
More finds and show pics coming up. . . . .
While I'm at it, here's another one on Saturday, August 8th at Clayson Farm. Oh what fun! Don't you just love summertime?
Now look at this picture taken here in July. See the growth?
It just amazes me how fast everything grew up! I love the cottage flowers. Don't ask me what they're called - my husband is the landscaper, not me! Although he didn't put these in. 'Cause he tells me all the time how much he dislikes the lava rock! If we buy this little house, that's the first thing coming out! Oh, and we'd add a cute little picket fence and a few other things to cutesy it up even more! He just pruned the really tall bush so it doesn't hide the porch. Looks much better!
Are you still enjoying your gardens? We're missing our vegetable garden this year! However, this little yard is easy-peasy to keep maintained. And for a super busy landscaper, that's just wonderful!
Doesn't this little glass dish look pretty holding shells and a couple of pale blue glass floats I recently picked up at an antique store? When we were at the 28 mile long garage sale a guy wanted $50 each for little floats. It made the $6 I paid for these a HUGE bargain!
Oh yes, and barbecuing outside. I don't like heating up the house any more than necessary or standing over a hot stove. Yuck! I love, love, love barbecuing, and everything tastes better on the BBQ. Don't you think?
What are some of your favorite things to do in the summertime?
Does anyone know if that's considered lucite?
Only 1 1/2 days of school left - wow! What are your summer plans?
It's survived countless moves without being broken and was stored away for many years to be used when my daughter was old enough to take care of it. I'm so glad it made it! I love the idea of passing something like this down from generation to generation.
I also love the sweet little print on the wall above her bed. I found it on eBay a few years ago. It came without glass over it so I went to Michaels and bought some to protect the print. I definitely have a girly girl who loves her pink!
I was in Michael's looking around for ideas and saw they had rock candy on sticks. I just had to pick up some purple (grape) and green (watermelon) ones.
Flowers in our yard from last year. They were absolutely beautiful on the 4th!
Daisies the kids and their dad picked by the side of the road for our BBQ.
Is this red-shuttered bird house not the cutest?Memorial Day will be here faster than we know and then it'll be Flag Day and then the 4th of July. I'm ready this year. Ideas have been bombarding my mind for a 4th BBQ again this year. I better get busy if they're going to come to fruition!
