C'mon Spring...

This little birdhouse wall hanging wa created using wood from an old Virginia barn.

The stories they could tell

There is something about old serving utensils that intrigues me. How many suppers did they serve, whose worn, wrinkled hands wrapped around the handles? If only they could talk…

Some of Beth’s amazing offerings for this show…such a talented stylist!

I was busy setting up yesterday for Renninger’s Fall in the Field Show in Mount Dora this weekend when Toni, the show’s coordinator said that she had someone I needed to meet. I walked down to the end of the pavilion and met one of the nicest dealers I have encountered in a long time, Beth , from Olde Tyme Marketplace in North Carolina. What a sweetheart! Her booth is loaded with chippy white, crusty rusty, galvanized, wire, old bottles and VERY cool burlap and fabric creations.

As we were chatting we realized we were both going to be at The City Farmhouse Pop-Up Barn Show next week! Wait…what? A cool new friend and someone to vent talk to about the upcoming show of my lifetime!!  Imagine the luck! I have been nerving out, worrying, and having anxiety attacks over this show…so nice to share with another dealer and a super friendly, nice dealer to boot!

Don’t miss the Olde Tyme Marketplace booth at the show, under the big tent, Booth #10 and visit me, When Pigs Fly in the outside tents, #43!

cityfarmhouseNeedless to say, I am a happy gal and looking forward to a great Fall in the Field show this weekend and spending time with a really nice person and new friend.

Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House in Brooksville, Florida

Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House in Brooksville, Florida

What a great day! This morning I headed out and travelled some of the most beautiful backroads through “old style” Florida landscapes. Peaceful, quiet and thought provoking. I came up with lots of ideas and solved many problems on my lone journey to Brooksville! I was headed to Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House…I was thrilled when I pulled in the long drive and arrived here…

image (23)-001Inside this adorable cabin there were amazing primitive antiques, lots of handmade Fall decor and fresh bittersweet by the bunch! Beautiful displays welcomed you from the front screen door and out to the sleeping porch. Eye candy everywhere! I was happy to see so many of my prim friends and dealers and had such a good time hunting and picking for just the right treasures.

Fun was had by all and I would highly recommend marking your calendars not to miss any of the special events at Bittersweet Antiques. Irma and Pat are talented, friendly and do a wonderful job. I can’t wait until Christmas Open House!

Here’s a peek…hope to see YOU there next time around!
