Vintage Market Finds and the Copper Stash

Hi Friends, I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. It was a "working" weekend for us, as we concentrated on getting the basement cleaned up and put together. We got tons of boxes emptied, the family room usable, and my husband's office pretty much up and running. The basement has been a convenient catch all since we still had both storage areas to finish organizing and lots of books and decor to decide on. So now it's a great place to go and relax, without feeling like you're in a storage unit. It's really good to finally have this done. Pics coming soon.

Out and About and some Vintage Finds

My Mom, Sis and I got together this last week and had lunch, then did a little shopping around town. We all don't get out together often, so this was lots of fun. Then add in some vintage goodies to wander through... even better.

New Shops at the Vintage Peddler

(I'm sorry, my blog keeps updating on it's own each time 
I join a new party and add it on my blog post...)

 I never know what to call someplace that's so totally unique...
separate spaces housed in an old manufacturing building;
shared by a group of extremely talented vendors.
A place full of vintage and curated pieces;
some new artisans and remarkable stylists,
all with a passion for antiques and vintage.

Welcome to the Vintage Peddler

Out and About... at Harrison House Market

We have so many great places to shop in our area, with tons of talented people making it all happen. Late last spring an older shopping center in Ozark, Missouri (just south of where I live in Springfield) that was a hub for great vintage goods was sold. In an instant, the vintage shops and flea market vendors that it housed had to start looking for new homes and venues. I was so excited to learn that my favorite, Harrison House Market, has found a great spot here in town.

Gotta Go Sale

This is a post, that I'm semi, sort of, embarrassed about, but I'm doing it anyway, hoping you don't mind looking at a few photos that are old ones from my space at Relics, (here in Springfield, Missouri) from last year. I wouldn't take pictures and post them on a bathroom wall, of what my booth space looks like right now. pretty much like a tornado went thru a junk store... yep that's pretty much it. 

These are old pics so it doesn't look anywhere
 near this good in there anymore.

I'm closing my space out by the last weekend of this month. On July 27 and 28. The reason I'm posting all this mayhem is that big architectural window in the has to go. It won't fit in the back of my husband's suv and I'm not paying someone to haul it home for me. I don't have anyplace to put it, but it's super cool piece. It's an actual window (no glass panes, though) that is probably about 7 to 7 and 1/2 foot tall, in good shape. It would be so great for an outdoor arbor, or for a gardener's many wonderful ways to use it, except I don't have a place for it. I'll probably kick myself later, but at this point in time getting my husband to try to build something wouldn't be practical.

I also have a couple of tables and small tabletop bookcases that I've used for display that now need to go too, and they're marked at a good sale price. It all has to go, so if you're local and want to see about any of it, it's at Relic's Antique Mall, on West Battlefield, just west of Kansas Expressway and the Grizzly Tools Showroom. I have $95 on the big window, a real steal. Now remember, it's big, and behind a bookcase, so it will require some manpower to untether it and haul it to a truck. First come first serve. My booth is the first row to the west of the restrooms and tearoom, it's in the middle of the store, on the west side of the aisle. 

Just about forgot that I have two or three old doors also, one is 17 or 18, the other ones are 25, (but not marked at this time) also behind furniture. I was hoping I could get those out for whoever wanted them on that tear down weekend.

Most of all of this is gone, 
except the wonderful white metal fence gate is still there, for $50 I think.
I still have some smalls for good prices, too.

OK, I'm done groveling.
 I just need to see this stuff gone
 so it's not home in my marriage won't stand it.

thanks guys,

Sweet Spring Bookends

I've had these oh-so-sweet little vintage chalk bookends for the last 5 years or so, and even though I've photographed them before, for some reason they've just never made it into a blog post.

 I was smitten with the little children's faces that reminded me of vintage Hummel characters. I imagine they are from the 40's by the look of their sticker on the bottom, and the fact that they are chalk and maybe plaster of Paris. (and that means so very easily chipped)

The little girl appears to be very shy, and she's holding a basket of baby chicks.

 While the little boy is snuggling  a load of bunnies.

Aren't they just adorable?

I have them downstairs in my shabby seating area.
(say that fast 3 times)

And I have to tell you, I've fallen in love with Pic MonkeyIt's everything (well almost everything) that we found in Picnik, and hopefully they will expand once they can. I was able to do the little banner with the text on it (the first photo) there and watermark my photo. Super easy! You'll find the ability to do the transparent banner  under the header of "overlays" then to "geometric shapes". Much easier to navigate than any other photo editing site. yay!!

Puttering in the Sun Room for the 100th White Wednesday

I guess you could say that's my know playing with little things, moving them around...adding...and then moving things around some more. I've been puttering in the sunroom again.

(my bluebird china cups will be linked to A Rosy Note)

It's one of my favorite places to be in the warmer months.
The kitties and I hang out there alot.

I like a white backdrop for all my quilts,
(that change for the season)
pillows, and vintage garden goodies.

(rooting some ivy in an old tea pot)

And here's the newest member of the lamb family.
Given to me by one of the sweetest, most talented, cutest
little redheads around....
The duct tape diva herself...

I like to keep things fun out here...
things that make me giggle

Even a chalkware chicken sitting on a nest.

Love these pillows that I found at my friend Laura's space.
(thanks girlfriend!!!)

One of my fave color combos is pink and green;
fresh and Springy.
I found this quilt a few weeks ago for just a few dollars.

I just can't pass up a darling pillow,
with graphics from the 30's.
Enlarge it to see that it was a Birthday Gift long ago.

I thought I'd better share my late Spring fun
before it was time to change out for Summer.

Be Sure you head on over to Faded Charm to see what's going on.
Kathleen has some celebratin' this week!

I'm linking to all these great parties this week:

Hope to see you Thursday afternoon for
