fun weekend finds

Like an addict, I couldn't stay away. 
This week is crunch week with preparations for the show, but if you're like me, no matter how much inventory you have, there's always room for more!

I came home with some stuff that I'm so excited about.
Just as I was about to leave with my purchases from thrifting, I spotted this adorable little wagon.  There was no way I could leave him behind.  Too cute- and it just says spring to me!

The slatted sides really lift out too.  Wouldn't this be cute with some potted flowers by the front door? (kinda why I shot it this way)
If I thought Bella would have let me, I would've attempted to get her standing in it with her paws on the handlebars, but I was sure that wasn't going to happen!

I also scored some amazing shabby chic sheet fabric again!  Now I have a pink option for pillows as well.  Loving this!!

Besides the floral pillows I'm working on for the show, I made up a faux French grain sack look. 

Very excited about this one!  Fleur de lis are my favorite....

I'm not sure why, but I am really taking an interest in these old wooden shoe forms.  This is the fourth one I've come across in the last few months, and I grab them every time.  They make for interesting bookends:

or just sculptural art:

Pretty fun huh?  The warmth of the wood is just beautiful.

This sizeable mid century jewelry box was a great find.  Red velvet lining, and it reminds me so much of the one my grandma had.  There is a ton of storage in this piece!

I was mostly on the hunt for a bigger piece for my space, and came home with this dresser.  The lines are great, and I am going to really have to get my rear in gear to get this done in time! Am I crazy for thinking I can get this done in a few days??  I guess we'll see.

Should be a busy and fun week.  If you didn't see the info on my Facebook fan page, and are thinking about going to the Spring Heritage Faire, you might want to purchase tickets soon- they are going quickly. Friday night's tickets can be purchased through Danner and Soli at Mission Mill.  Saturday's tea tickets can be purchased via Paypal at Roost Reimagined

 Friday night's presale wine and appetizer night looks incredible!  You can check out the menu and vintner here.

Have a great Monday!

  2. I remember my dad using some of those shoe forms. I used to walk them around with the little handles! LOL. I wonder if he still has them??
