vintage peacock...

Is December going by way too fast for anyone else?
Am I the only one who has not started Christmas Shopping yet?
I am that person who makes lists, checks them twice and is usually just about ready to wrap it all up by now.

This year I have been extra busy as I took another space in a multi-dealer shop in Norwood, MA called
The Vintage Peacock.
Owned by Maureen and Peter, two vendors who I worked with at the Wrentham Country Store, this wonderful shop is the result of a revitalization of an old mill that is now full of life through a collection of shops like The Vintage Peacock selling antiques as well as vintage and repurposed items.
The Winsmith Mill Market is a great way to spend the day treasure hunting as there is also a small cafe, a shop that carries Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, home to the Norwood Art Association as well as the very popular monthly market, Vintage Thymes.

After the holidays I am looking forward to spending more time getting to know the other vendors and their shops and will be sharing their spaces here with you!

My space at The Vintage Peacock is a smaller space than I have ever had but I love the challenge of it!
Here is a little peek...

















The Vintage Peacock, located inside the Winsmith Mill Market, is open every Friday and Saturday from 10 - 4, and on Sunday from 12 - 4.
A trip to "the mill" should be on your road trip list for the new year!
You can follow them on Facebook here.

This past weekend we said goodbye to Jim's grandmother.
Nana was 96 and this beautiful lady was one of the most loving, caring, strong and funny women I have ever met.
A true inspiration.
Her stories that she shared from her home in New Foundland and the life she lived here, raising her family of 5 will forever be in our hearts.
Thank you Nana, your love and devotion to your family made us all feel very special.

My favorite photo of my children and their Great Nana, Christmas 2012.

Sandi,
Oh, dear friend, my prayers for comfort and peace are with your family in the passing of Jim's Grandmother, Nana.
You have an adorable "new"space at Vintage Peacock!
The space appears to be similar to those we saw in Missouri's marketplaces. Challenging indeed! The four drawer dresser in your booth space is stunning!!!
Now, go make those lists!!! I've checked mine twice, wrapped the gifts and will work on baking and Christmas On Crooked Creektt's Menu this week!!! (wink)
Fondly,
Pat

Sandi,
Love your new space. How fun and challenging for you to have the two spots now. It will keep you busy.

Love the picture of your two kids with Great Nana. How special to have that beautiful picture. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you say goodbye to your wonderful Nana. Hope all the memories of wonderful times will help with missing her so.

Sort for your loss, yet she is still in your hearts and with you always.
Your space looks wonderfully filled with creatively inspiring pieces.

A beautiful time to find peace in your heart and all that you create.

May Nana enjoy spending her first Christmas in heaven with her savior and all the angels. If she could only tell us how glorious it is.
It is always sad to not have our special grandmothers with us, I miss my Grandmother every day .

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Love that chalkboard globe in the shop
