All Fenced In...

I knew the moment I saw it I had to have it.  Why?  I have no idea I just LOVE it.

I love the scallop edge.

Mixed with a little burlap.

Add a couple vintage clothespins.

and hang it from the ceiling!  

and when I was done with that...

I took this landscape basket and hung it from the ceiling too!

What do think?  Too Much?

Pop Bottle Flower Frog

When all else fails get creative!

While setting the shop up I kept tripping over a galvanized boiler that I had stashed a load of pop bottles in when I had no better place to store them.  So when I was faced with the dilemma of figuring our how to display the amazing pussy willow branches I had just gotten into the shop, I literally tripped over my solution. 

My boiler full of vintage pop bottles. 

Fresh Cut Pussy Willow Branches

Stick the branches in the bottles.

Stack the bottles into the container.  These are quite heavy so they work great!

And ta-da!  

Now go out and find some branches and bottles and do some arranging!

Wonderfully Exhausted...

This last week has been crazy.  Tons of time spent pulling the shop together in anticipation of the Open House.  And the day was here before I knew it!  It was amazing my brain is mush so I'll let the pictures do the talking...

I love this industrial nail many possibilities!

Fun round bottom mailbox and flower frogs.

Amazing soaps and lotions from Ellie's Handmade Soap in a wonderful rustic cupboard.

It was wonderful, full house, lovely customers and I'm EXHAUSTED!
Time to put my feet up and relax. 

Happy Spring!

Step Stool Makeover

A while back I found a wonderful step stool makeover at Mamie Jane's and I just couldn't get it off my mind.  I had to give it a try.  

So I found this sweet little black step stool.

And figured it'd be fun to "dress"it up a bit...

I dug through my pile of feedsacks and decided this would be a perfect "outfit".

I added a little foam padding and a little muslin lining.

And then decked it out with a little Vigor and Vitality...

I love how it turned out.  And even more fun...

Here's what's left of the feedsack.  These cute chickens are bound to find their way into another project.

What do you think I should do with it?

Ready for Spring...

I had a quick trip to Nashville, Tennessee to visit family and it was such a tease!  The weather was beautiful and the promise of Spring was in the air.

So you can imagine my joy (insert sarcasm here) when I arrived home to find that we had a dumping of snow!  

I am on the countdown for Spring only 3 more weeks...bring it on!
