Classy Cart

Sister Sandra whipped up this cart for me to take to the antique show this weedend. We see all kinds of fancy ones at every show we go to. She found the frame awhile ago and made the burlap and linen liner. Everything she thinks of to do with burlap is cute. Lucky me.

The Barn

I dropped in on this show last Saturday. It was set up so well. The displays were nice. The small space is well used. I missed the donuts because at 9:00 when it opened I saw the crowd and thought I would go a little later. Next time I'll join the crowd. The Barn is going to open for another weekend on Nov. 5 so if you missed this time you have another chance. Sister Shic has items there. Try to make it!

What do you collect? I have several items I look for and pick up whenever I am at an antique or junking show. I have metal cookie cutters, jello molds, tart tins, flower frogs, vintage postcards, buttons, crochet pot holders and these spools. I always think I have enough until I see one I don't have. It's like a treasure hunt at a big show. Round and round until you've seen it all. Gareld wonders how I can spend 9 hours looking at antiques and go back for a second day!
Easy peasy!

Craft Room

I have started to move into my craft room. I want it to be a relaxing, inviting room. I am trying to create storage that would be pleasing to look at. I painted this dresser and bookshelf and stacked them. I will post a picture when I get it loaded up. I am anxious to get crafting.

We heard about this show in Stanfield with only a couple weeks to prepare and we went for it anyway. These girls hosted a really nice weekend. We have our foot in the door of the "vintage junking" business. We hope to take this far and have our own show here some day.

Our first venture out to a show was a huge success. It was great!

Oh my goodness, these fountain pumps were the hit of the show on Saturday.

Isn't this lamp shabby chic cute! Sandra made it and so many people loved it but no one splurged and bought it at this sale. Didn't want it to go to cheap so it can be admired at another show.

Here's another crafty creation from Sandra.
