It’s Friday and I am actually on time and joining in the Instagram fun. It has been a long couple of weeks and I am tired. In a good way. I have just had a lot of projects that are not share worthy, at least yet.  But enough about that.  Here’s a little of what we’ve been up to lately.

 

bath time is always fun for this guy /thrifting luck / sick boy

custom owls/ daddy and chicken luke / Construction Luke – he calls himself Thomas when he puts on that hat

falling backwards on the sofa is too fun / posing? future model? lol / building with daddy

finished the base for my December daily album – I will finish it this year / Luke’s b-day gift came, he wanted to open it /silly boy

Luke got a new coat / riding the escalator with daddy / I finished one dining room chair makeover

Some things I am loving lately…….

 

This December Daily Album by Jessica at Witticisms is amazing! I have great ambition to make one for my myself and maybe make them at my November craft night!

 

I did a little update on Etsy this past weekend! It makes me so giddy to see all my colorful things in the shop.

 

Elizabeth of Dear Lizzy’s awesome Paislee Press Calendar.  I must make one soon, also can we say grandparents Christmas gifts!

I’m dreaming of these chairs to go with my new dining room table. Alas they are sold out and even if they weren’t they would more than likely be out of the budget. ;) So I will probably be painting some of my existing chairs white and thrifting some more. :)

This Wreath! I die. DIY on  Bloesem Kids. It’s made from paper! Can you believe that? I WILL be making one of these for Christmas.

 

What are you loving lately? Can you tell my mind is skipping ahead to Christmas? It’s my Favorite Holiday/time of year.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

It’s Friday, thank goodness. It’s been a long week with David out of town for over half of it. He leaves again on Sunday. Boo. But here’s what the past couple of weeks have looked like via Instagram.

My Mom and I participated in our first Flea Market this weekend! It was awesome. This is our booth. Vintage Trunk, my mom came up with the name. We had such a blast, preparing and setting up the booth. It is so much fun to be validated by selling vintage you find to someone else.  LOVE IT. I will hopefully be doing a little etsy sale of some vintage in my currently closed woollypetalsvintage. So stayed tuned. In the meantime take a walk around our booth.

The check out area. I sketched our logo I designed onto a chalkboard for a booth sign.

Some furniture and toys.

This was a fun display of linens and kitchen utensils.

The school and travel stuff. Every one of those globes sold. And some of the luggage too.

Christmas, not as popular as we expected but we’ve still got a bit of time before the Season starts.

Some trays, lampshades, art, and fun mid century lamp, and some embroidery I did.

Some embroidery pieces will be making there way into the shop.

Lots of dishes and randoms things.

Graters, sifters, and games. Oh My!

Thermos’ and bundt tins.

Some vintage fabric garlands.

And back to the sign and the checkout spot.

We participated in The Pec Thing in Pecatonica, IL. It is a good sized show and had record attendance this weekend. If you are ever in or around Rockford (closest big city) in September or May you must attend.

We have a lot to learn, but we had a blast and did super well. I can NOT wait for the spring show. Now I get to shop some more. ;)
