perfect day to pin...

It is quite a blustery day outside my window.
As Hurricane Sandy makes her way up the East Coast, this Sandi decided it would be the perfect day to pin.
After I clean the house of course.
Or not. 

Here are a few of my favorites that I pinned a while ago that still make my heart skip a beat.

From my board "don't miss the details"...

My "vintage vignettes" board has quite a few pins from the
Curious Boys...

I'm smitten with them...

Then there is my ever growing "wish list" board...

I missed out on the firkin at the shop.  I wanted to paint it white just like this one.

Last but not least is my "vintage with a view" board.
These views are much better than the one outside my window!
Love this beauty from another Sandi...

This next pin is for my bff.
Happy Birthday Lisa!

Hoping everyone stays safe during the storm!
Off to pin some more I mean clean!

blissful whites wednesday...

It has been a busy few weeks here working on Jake's room makeover, painting furniture for the shop as well as taking
Jeanne Oliver's Creatively Made Home ecourse.
The course is wonderful!!
 I really have not had much time for anything else.
However, I did not want to miss the first
hosted by Becky from the beautiful blog, Timewashed!

On Friday I shared some photos of the shop including this display in Mary Ellen's space...

One of my blog friends spied the sweet pair of vintage shoes and wanted to purchase them and asked if I could ship them to her...

The answer, yes...anything for a blog friend.

Thank you Becky for carrying on this wonderful gathering that Kathleen started!

Thank you for visiting...have a great day!

wrentham country store...

This week flew by for me!
I did get quite a bit accomplished.
The makeover in Jake's room is coming along nicely.
Today I will finish up the painting then I can start the fun stuff.
I have been wanting to add some industrial pieces to my home and his room is the perfect place to start.
So the hunting begins and what better place to start than at the shop.
The Shop Girls have been bringing in such great pieces this fall and their booths look amazing.
Here is a little peek inside the Wrentham Country Store...

If this firkin is still at the shop when I work tomorrow, it is coming home with me...

I am also thinking about these old gas station numbers for Jake's room...

There is even a hidden Mickey at the shop...

Mary Ellen always has a wonderful display to welcome our customers...

To see more of what is new at the shop you can visit the Recent Finds page of our website!

I am joining Debra today for Vintage Inspiration Friday.

Thank you all for stopping by today, have a great weekend!

french inspired pieces...

Well, once camping season ends the DIY projects begin.
(Which seem to be keeping me from blogging!)
I could not find my leftover project list from last year so I moved forward and started a brand new one.
Jake's room.
I forgot to take before pictures, but I know I have some old ones, somewhere.
My color inspiration for the room is here.
I should have some before and during pictures to share next week.

In the mean time, I think I will share with you some of the french inspired pieces I just finished and brought into the shop this morning...

The shop is looking amazing and I took a lot of pictures when I worked on Saturday.
I will share them later this week.
In between cleaningandsandingandpaintingandpainting.
Oh and getting ready for the wonderful Creatively Made Home ecourse that starts next Monday!
I am so excited!!

Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes and thank you for stopping by ~ have a wonderful week!

We closed up our trailer last weekend for the season.
I took a break on Saturday and sat by the lake for a while.
I just sat there reflecting on the season and how it went by so quickly ...

It was a lot of work and for some reason this old girl is just exhausted this week.

I did a bit of cleaning around here today and got to thinking about how this past year has gone by so quick too.
Thought I would share some reflections through my newly cleaned old mirrors...

This old girl turned another year older yesterday...

I will be honest and say this was a tough one for me.
The one before a big one always is.
Seeing this last night though made my day a little better.
Thanks you!

Thanks for stopping by!

our fall show...

It was a wonderful weekend at the
Our Vintage Fall Market Weekend was a huge success!
I took a few pictures to share with you all.
The whole place was dressed up with corn stalks, mums and pumpkins...

I could not get there until Sunday afternoon, but there were still pumpkins to be picked out front!
Our porch was full of interesting finds...

Inside the shop, the displays were wonderful...

I want this table (if it is still there on Tuesday, it just might be mine)...

All my fellow Shop Girls did an Amazing job!
The owner, Mary Ellen, once again, out did herself with this show and I can't wait until the next one!
(You know we have something in the works!)
Take a peek at Mary Ellen's blog for some more pictures!

It was a busy weekend all around for me.
I thought I could get a bit of downtime today but the empty spaces in my booth need to be filled!

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
