Just got done making this vintage style postcard garland for my Beehive Cottage Etsy Shop

Vintage Sewing Cabinet Dolled Up!

Recently I bought this sweet sewing machine cabinet at one of my favorite antique shops. 
This little piece tucks perfectly in one of the corners of my dining room!
Love the color.
I switched out my red & white patterned plates to my May Flower plates from VernonWare. 
I love how the blue flower now pops with the cabinet! 
I love the little, subtle touches that takes a minute to change out to give a new look!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

The Vintage Marketplace!

My dream came true! I have been accepted to be a vendor at "The Vintage Marketplace"! 
WooHoo! I am one happy girl!
Mark your calendar!
On Friday my friend Bonnie and I went to "The Vintage Marketplace"  that is held quarterly in Rainbow/Fallbrook, CA. (just south of Temecula in San Diego County).
Beautiful booth after booth filled with unbelievable wares, nestled under old oak trees.
The first booth I went to is my dear friends sweet Sara & Abbey's "Sweet Magnolias Farm"! 
They are a Mother ~ Daughter team and such an inspiration to me! Hey girls! xox
This time they set their booth up as a CAMP site ... more like "Glamping to me!
The top of the tent had vintage suitcases!
Cuteness everywhere!
I LOVE everything I bought from them! 
Below are some random pictures of the day.
It was really crowded and I missed taking pics of LOTS of booths because I was shopping! LOL!
This vendor has her cute pink trailer with her!
Look at the darling paper flowers on the top of this booth!
So dreamy!
Christy's beautiful art!
I love this darling chandelier! 
I am going to use the mason jar idea in my kitchen.
And last but not least, Rita's darling new little chicks that were pampered and loved at market!
Come join us at the next event!
I will be there!
Wishing you a wonderful week my friends! xox
