What I've been up to this weekend...

I love inviting you all into my sunroom;
My 80's "seen better days" sunroom.

It's my fun spot in the house,
where quilts and nic nacs and color schemes change each season.

But guess who I found out here this weekend?

(me on left, Debbie on right)

Deb and her other half, the infamous Cat Daddy,
decided to make a weekend trip up through Oklahoma,
then into Missouri in search of junk gold.
They came by the house,
then we headed out for an Italian dinner.
I haven't laughed and hugged this much for a long time!

If you don't know Debbie,
then please go visit her at Talking Trash.
They are seasoned veterans of Warrenton,
and dealers at Winnie and Tulula's in Athens, Texas.
Talent extraordinaire!!
(and kindred spirits)

The reason I didn't get to spend more time with the dynamic duo
was due to something that had been in the works for awhile.

I've had a great booth space at Spring Creek Antiques and Tea room,
in Ozark Missouri for the last three years.
But it's not an easy place to navigate
 with furniture and tubs of merchandise.

And as some of you know,
I have a little issue with my heart;
a hereditary thingy, which has been kicking up lately.
The result of which has meant letting go of that space.

So Saturday me, hubbs, and daughter #2 Alyson,
headed down to pack it up and move it out.

But as we were about to unload it all in the garage,
I just couldn't make myself let all the "stuff" come back inside.
A quick decision and we were on the road again to Relics
where I have two other spaces.

There just happened to be an available space
 on the same aisle as my other two spots,
so I grabbed it up and we hurriedly put together this new booth;
a little more girly and white.

With 30 minutes left until closing we started unpacking tubs of smalls.
Aly is great at display so she threw it all together in record time.

See the window on the dollhouse here on the upper right?
that's how I felt by 6:00 that evening.
A little "wonky"!

But, thank you Lord, it's not in the garage!!!!

love you all,
off to buy white geraniums...

Vintage Inspiration Friday: #33 New Spaces at Relics Antique Mall

It seems like only yesterday that I found a space at Relics,
oh yeah, it WAS only 6 weeks ago that I moved in.
But hey, things can change in 6 weeks...
things like the opening of tons of new booth spaces
that will be surrounding a soon-to-be-open tea room. what did I do?
well, I grabbed two smaller spaces right next to each other
on a well trafficked aisle.

More space in this new area equals less "stuff" in the garage
plus a happier husband,
and a lot more people going by.

I hated to ask my guys to make another move so soon,
but they saw the great opportunity too,
so we had on "happy faces" all around.

Do you ever get the feeling "something" just isn't quite right?
Well, that's how it felt in my first space...
I guess my location just wasn't quite right

and this new location just feels right

Every time I'm there, a new dealer has come in,
so there's lot's of inspiration,
and everyone is excited to have the tea room opening this summer.

If you're anywhere in the area be sure you come by the mall.
It's huge and has the best selection of antiques and quality vintage in town.

Now for some great entries from last week's VIF:
(seriously, you guys have the BEST stuff!!!)

Many of you have asked about a VIF party button...
Well, I finally got it together.
(I do think I've pulled out lots of my hair in the process...yikes!)

I'll work on a "featured on VIF" button for next week.
thanks for being so patient.

And thanks so much for joining in for the party.
I adore each and every one of you and love seeing what you're up to!

I'm In!!!

Well, I made it, but not without lot's of help. My hubbs and son-in-law, Chris;
my two trusty sidekicks, did the hard work.
I still have more things to bring in, but at least I'm there.

This is the first time I've moved into a space
 that I didn't bring enough stuff to fill it up.

So I still need to put a few more tubs together of smalls,
and bring in a few more prints.

The huge architectural window piece has been in my garage for a year or two.
I thought it made a good statement sitting there in the middle.

that was sooooo much fun,
and I have the scar to prove it!

I had the wicker settee in my Dining Room,
but it's time to let it go.
I traded it out for a church pew that I recently painted white.

Here's lookin' at ya!

If you live in the area, Relics is a lot of fun.
Located on West Battlefield and Kansas Expressway.
10-6 M-F,
12-6 Sunday.

The new Tea Room is scheduled for late Spring.
(can't wait!)

Hope you all had a good weekend,
I've been a bum today.

love ya,

Vintage Inspiration Friday #25: Where to find it

                                                            ... Inspiration, that is.

Nothing like a day at an Antique Show (Antique Festival of the Ozarks' first show) for some great shopping or to give you some fun ideas for displays! I'm always ready for a trip to a great store, Open House, or show, to get those creative juices flowing. And I guess they were, because I left the show Saturday and went directly to find another booth space! Who knew...?? I like to "shake things up" every once in a while, and I was definitely in the mood to do some shakin'! Not to mention just trying to clean out the garage. My house has become another storage unit, and it's time to take it back from "Hoarders".

These next few photos are from

Brian was here, but Meloney was in Houston at the Urban Market.

These are a few of Brian's great zinc top tables.

I forgot to ask what this was, but it was really cool.

And here's Sheila's space.
 She has the most wonderful old Victorian house in Billings, Missouri,
 that she and some very talented people host
once monthly sales.

(I'm seriously in love with this cabinet)

She's hiding here.
so cute, sweet, and talented!

And for some more inspiration from last week's party...

I've said this a bunch of times,
 but Theresa Cano has been my main inspiration since day 1 of blogging.
She's generous, kind, beautiful, creative and talented!
She was my first blog crush, and she added me to her blog roll.
Her slideshows are where I head with my first cup of coffee.
LOVE, love, love her!!
Thank You, Sweet T!

Vintage Valentines

New sofa love

(I'm a quilt lover and Brenda has some amazing ones)

Hope you'll join in for
 Vintage Inspiration Friday
anything vintage or vintage inspired!

Hopefully, I'll have photos of my new space next time.
I'm moving in this weekend!
