Vintage For Sale

Vintage For SALE




Remember that old rockin' chair?

Well, I've gathered up more "Vintage" stuff
for a booth at the Farmer's Market
TOMORROW!

When I agreed to baby sit 3 days this week
I figured "NO Problem, I'll have it all ready by then!"

NOT!!!!!!

Today was down to the wire-
you're not even close to being ready-
what were you thinking- day!

I started at 6 a.m.
here it is 6:30 p.m.
and I have the van loaded and
just a few little details 
to finish up!

PHEWWWWW!!!!


Posters have been up around town
all week, so I'm hoping plenty of 
 people  shoppers will come tomorrow
and BUY...
and I'm not just 
twiddling my thumbs,
sittin' in that rocking chair by myself!!!


this is another of my finished furniture pieces....

night stands like this 
are so fun...
the possibilities are endless
and I hope I can find 
more to redo!


I've done some Uppercase Living projects too....
some were right out of the catalog (easy,peasy)
and others are my own creations
with old barn wood and paint!


Do you recognize water boy?
Sorry no time for a better picture now...
he got a bronzed finish and looks amazing
(if I do say so myself)
the girl is still in the shed waiting for her new look.




Here is a canvas I had a lot of fun with...
You probably recognize some of the photos 
from our blog!  I printed them and decoupaged them 
on canvas, painted a border and added a quote!
I'd like to do this more on a custom order basis.

Oh, and see the bright red framed chalkboard?
That used to be a mirror with an ugly brown frame...
red paint, and chalk board paint and 
now it might have to hang in my kitchen!


More fun vintage stuff we've enjoyed collecting....

I picked a bunch of cat tails and sprayed them for bouquets...



Fill up your shopping cart 
with awesome vintage items
from Sall's Country Life....


See you in the park 
tomorrow morning!


(wish me luck!)

Wow! Some neat stuff there. You've been holding out on me. And while I was hauling your mother around you're harboring secrets?

I wish I lived closer I would love to visit and ooh and aww over all of your vintage things. I bet you are tired. Watching my grand children I am wiped out.
Thanks for your comment. This has been a weird year for us too. This is August and this is the first time I have really picked anything. It has been to cold for a really good garden.
Thanks for visiting,
Kim,
