Mega Pop Up Shop!

Once again I’ll be bringing my artgoodies and vintagegoodies shops to life in a Pop Up Style Boutique here in Grand Rapids, MI! Lots of great pieces, including vintage and studio clearance. This pic is from a few years ago, but you get it, loads n loads of organized delightful goods! Vintage housewares galore, small furniture, artgoodies products, vintage textiles, and whatever else I find between now and then! A sale not to be missed!

Front Garden Time!

We love gardening together and we’ve been working on going grass free, basically we have just one patch in the back left. This year in the front we tore out the grass between the road and sidewalk and got a couple car loads of free bricks from a place that was the original dairy in our neighborhood, so cool! We dug out and made square sections in that area and then planted creeping thyme in between. And if you recall, we dug out almost all the grass in front last year and split and planted even more perennials including some white hydrangeas. The front has just taken off and everything is so happy and healthy! We’re going to rip out the bottom strip of grass and finish with more rocks and plants to help hold the slope in. We’re loving all the color and bird, bee, butterfly friendly plants! Plus I got a super cute love seat for the outside front porch and used a small hamper for a mini table which turns the space into another small outdoor room. Great for rainy day coffee outside!

Color of the Month July 2018!

July! With the heat at the beginning of this month I guess the warm coral color for this month’s post is more than appropriate! I’m not a huge fan of super hot, however, these temps make for the perfect cottage days floating in the lake!

Fave vintage: fun plastic play kitchen, coral speckled melmac including hard to find salt n p’s! And a really unusual McDonald’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers Boy Scout milk glass mug by Anchor Hocking, haven’t found any info about that yet. Plus a peach stripe border napkin as an anchor.

Fave vintage: speckled coral melmac, it’s the Gaiety line by Brookpark, designed by Joan Luntz. I tend to keep the aqua for myself but love the coral too. I had a gorgeous floral arrangement for the center that styles better, BUT I’ve never ever had a melmac bonbon tray so there it is! Back to vintage faves: peach border napkins, fiesta tablecloth, and a coral shell artgoodies towel (also available in navy) because it’s July and it’s lake/beach season!
