Out and About for some Fall Fun

We're really fortunate to have so many wonderful antique shops, flea markets, boutiques, and tea rooms, here in Springfield, and the surrounding area. You can spend several days and you still couldn't see all that they offer. Delicious food, great antiques, fun vintage treasures to find...and most of all we have some fabulous local talent.

Moss Covered Hearts

When thoughts of Valentine's Day and thoughts of Spring collide, I decided a moss covered heart would be fun to create. My inspiration piece has always been this beautiful moss covered heart with Autumn florals and leaves by Robin Gilmore, owner of The Vintage Suitcase, here in Springfield. I've had this photo in my archives and on the blog for several years. I love her work, but wanted something Valentine-y with fresh Spring-y colors. I didn't want to "copy", just give my own interpretation.

Gray Sideboard...

Between crumby weather and us packing, I haven't gotten out and about much, but recently I ran by Robin's Vintage Suitcase, here in Springfield. I had my camera with me, so I took a few pics of the store that's starting to show some Spring colors. I just fell in love with this amazing antique gray sideboard. Robin mixes her own chalk-y type paint, so can't tell you the color, but it highlighted in white and if I wasn't downsizing it would have come home with me. Gosh, I couldn't stop looking at it, so I thought you might enjoy a little salivating yourselves.

Here are a few more pics from around the shop.

Here's my cheese sign.

isn't this tole chandy just perfectly "Spring"?

Here piggy, piggy...

OK, one more look...

Robin is hoping to get an online shop started soon,
I'll keep you posted.

See you tomorrow for The Marketplace

joining in for Grey Day Thursday at Petite Michelle Louise

Have a great Sunday,

Robin's Vintage Suitcase Fall Open House

Happy Weekend, Everyone!
We're in full Fall mode here in SW Missouri,
at least with the Fall Open Houses in the area.

And I wanted to share some of the fun from last week's 
Fall Open House  at Robin's Vintage Suitcase.
 Here are some highlights currently in the store.
 Love this wonderful hand advertisement sign in white.

And does this big window look familiar to any of you?
Yes, it was in my booth at Relics, and now it lives at Robin's.
fits perfectly within an 1/8 of an inch. LOL!!
I knew she would use it to it's full potential!

Sofa painted with Robin's homemade "Plaster of Paris Paint".

Lot's of whites and grays.
Robin is also selling Jeanne d'Arc Magazine and Books at the store.

This clock is amazing, made from vintage garden tools!

Nappies and swaddling cloths from the British Company
that Prince George went home in.

Aren't these masks adorable?
This is Robin and her assistant Janet.

...then they traded.

and this customer was having fun too.

always so many fun things to see.

we're headed for the cool down,
Yay Fall, here we come!
