Wow! Once in a blue moon I almost miss my monthly color of the month vignette! The last day of the month just scooted right in there! But I made it and here’s a cool blue collection of vintage housewares! Most are from my personal collection and a few are for sale. Fave pieces are the amazing McCoy vase from my grandma’s, the lovely McCoy bowl, the boomerang dish!, the little dixie plastic silverware, the leaf egg cup I just got yesterday, the aluminum salt and p’s with aqua lids, and the kitschy cool calorie counter glass by The Beauty Health Assoc.
This past weekend I packed it up and headed to Columbus, OH for the Country Living Magazine Fair. I LOVE that I can merchandise both my vintage houseware finds and my artgoodies product line! A match made in heaven! I saw some friends I hadn’t seen in awhile, met the editor of the magazine and a couple other Country Living folks. Plus I met a couple of fans which was fun! This one girl asked to have her picture taken with me which was a first, her enthusiasm was great, she was super nice, and it really made my day. Next stop on the show train for me- The Country Living Fair Atlanta! I hope my super duper awesome and ultra nice neighbors decide to do the show! Afterall, it wouldn’t be country living without great neighbors who you can borrow a cup o’ sugar from or say a hammer to pound your tent stakes in!
Gray days, windy cool weather….um..no thanks, I’d love some more beachy sunshine time! Although the sunshiney cooler days are super dreamy feeling and I’m starting to warm up to the idea. This wonderful little apple orchard on the way to the cottage makes me feel a lot better about the wonders of fall. If you happen to be in Cassopolis, MI stop by and say hello to the super nice folks who run this place and pick up some delicious apples!
