So at the request of some of my readers, I am trying to blog more often. What do I love to see when I check my favs? Lots of pics! So sparing the witty text, here are some of my favorite little vignettes around my home. I hope you enjoy them...
The living room.
A fab old apothocary bottle found in Indiana.
Built in bookcase full (and I do mean full) of my favorite things.
The other half of the bookcase. I am such a "stuff" person...
Fab old frame with vintage sign letters spelling what else? JUNK
A tart tin with old typewriter keys.
Another fab frame filled with French papers from Corey Amaro and above a piece from Linda at Willow Nest Farm in Texas.
Old wisk brooms under a dome.
Mercury glass! Nothing more needs to be said...
Part of my nest collection in a wardian case.
Wardian case that houses some of my nests.
Another nest resting on a stack of ironstone platters. Behind is a fab mirror I got from TOT.
Old pitcher filled with tallow berries under a cloche.
Old glass battery jar filled with mercury glass ornaments.
The vignette inside a fab metal display case I bought from Donnie at Round Top. The pic is me...
The wonderful metal cabinet I got from TOT with the display case, a killer clock face and don't you love the birch sleeve from Pottery Barn?

Finally, I have a moment and some energy to blog! Two sales and one show in three weeks is just a bit much I have found out. All three went pretty well considering the economy, and it doesn't hurt that gas prices are falling lower daily. It finally reached $1.99 today near our house! Woohoo as they say at WAMU! So I just finished a show at Renningers on Sunday~~my first time back there in a couple of years as a dealer. I used to do that show every month but gave it up when I opened a larger shop. So it was awesome to get back out there and see familiar faces and meet some new ones as well. It is always a nice surprise to find out that so many people are reading my blog, especially people I am meeting for the first time. Thanks so much to all of you who stopped by the booth and said hello, and for your support of my business. Here are some pics of the booth. Please pardon the tarp background in some of them as they require the booth to stay covered until 10am on Friday when we can begin selling in the field.

Wow, sorry to be MIA for so long! I have been busy, busy! Two weeks ago I had a home sale~~huge thanks to all who attended, you guys are my peeps! Then I got a wild idea to have a garage sale yesterday. Big money? No. But alot of good junk found a new home and that is awesome! The leftovers got donated to The Salvation Army. And now you say? Well today I went to Renninger's Antique Market to secure a booth for the Extravaganza this coming weekend. I was soooo lucky to get a booth in the outdoor pavilion I used to be in! My booth is 520 so if you are planning to come out, I hope you will come find me. I promise to take pics of my booth! Until next time~~stay safe and keep junkin'!
