Well, today a friend of mine asked me to do the Allegan Antique Market this Sunday. I agreed and in four hours had all my things priced, furniture loaded, and was off to load it into her trailer! SO come see us THIS SUNDAY! booth #137! To check out her blog click here. So, there is a 15ft trailer and 3 carloads full of vintage stuff happening in our booth! Furniture, linens, housewares, that dare I say you probably won’t be able to live without, and great prices I might add!
I just can’t stop running into the most amazing vintage things! From little items I sell in my vintage shop, click here, to furniture pieces that I’ve slowly added to my home. Check out these recent acquisitions! Amazing little medical cabinets, with metal drawers-wood sides-and formica tops, plus these 2 little puzzle houses from the 50s. I’ve never seen these before and am going to have to do my research on them. I just added this to the corner of my dining room and I couldn’t love it more!
It’s finally here! The first official summer weekend was fantastic! Farmers market, a few good yard sales with vintage, yard work, dinner in the garden with friends, saw the Sign Painters documentary which was so awesome, and FYI the book is out too. I caught up a bit with one of the directors, Faythe Levine, which I know from my artgoodies gig. Her shop Paper Boat Boutique in Milwaukee, which has since closed, was the first place outside of Grand Rapids that I started working with almost 7 years ago. It was a pivotal moment in artgoodies history and I still can’t thank her enough. Then a fun wedding shower today, and I actually laid in the sun and read part of a book-amazing! Of course, I still worked both yesterday and today, because let’s face it, that’s how I roll. So no travel on the books again this summer which is strange and different yet again. However, this summer I have no magazine photo shoot to prep for and I’ve settled into the rhythm of working with a few larger companies, SO hopefully I can find a relaxing balance this summer…maybe?
Wow, the garden is growing and looking great! Here are a few pics for ya!
color of the month RED June 2013
I’ve been waiting to post this! I actually worked ahead last month since I had so many great red pieces. So, I’ve been enjoying this vignette in my dining room, and selling off some of the pieces for a couple weeks already. This has to be one of my favorite color of the months!
