A New Look

Pin It
I was contacted by someone that I admire very much to see if I would like some help with my blog.  I thought about it for about
1 second.
I am so excited!
So take a look around, she is in the process of making some changes, so some things are
"under construction".
So far , I love it!
What do you think?

Computer Issues

Pin It
The desktop computer that I use to write posts for this blog is having issues.  So it has been several days since I have been able to get on and read all of your great post and see your pretty pictures and to do a post of my own.  I have some older photos but the ones that I wanted to show you of our day at The Candlestick Antique Show are on my camera and I can't get them off until I get a new cord adapter for this little laptop.  So, hang on folks, those photos will be coming.
Instead, I will share some pretty photos of past shows.
Old tub/headboard/footboard combo with flowers.
Look at those legs!
Yellow shrubs in vintage galvanized tub.

Galvanized bucket full of flowers on patio table.

Flat of flowers ready to be planted on primitive potting workbench.

Sweet Allysum in cute clay pots.

Are you seeing a pattern here?  Yes!  Flowers or plants in vintage containers.
I'll share more another time. 

Our next show is July 3rd, in Alameda.  Hope to see you there! 

I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who have gone to the Antique Trove and or Scout Living recently to check out our spaces.  Your support means a lot.

Until next time...

Roses & Rust Show Pics

Pin It
I am just now getting around to sharing some pics of the Roses & Rust Show.  (Held in Anderson)  Even though they are a bit late, (the show was on June 5th), I still want you to see them.  It was such a beautiful setting!
Our view.  (before all the cars came)
The big barn.  Vendors were set up inside and all around.  About 70 I think.
Right inside the gate.  That's us with the six EZ-Ups. (including my parents)
The front of our space.
Workbench/island, twine, stool, hat box, french chair, chandelier, pillow, old post.
Dress form, farm table, wire baskets, industrial stool, mirror, books, primitive pine hutch with old ironstone.
Fellow vendors.
Bonnie from Lulafaye Home & Garden, the promoter of Roses & Rust.
Thank you Bonnie!
Stage coach rides!
And yes we had a pleasant rain most of the day.  This was a very common sight.  However it did not stop the 4000 plus people who came out to shop.
Next Roses & Rust - Oct 8th.

So big and pretty.
Dana-Powers Property
Smaller inside, but just as pretty.

June Alameda Cancelled

Pin It
The show scheduled for June 5th at Alameda has been cancelled due to this...

The promoters of the Alameda Antique Faire have decided that the weather on Saturday and Sunday will be too severe to hold the show.

Yes folks, it is the first week of June and this is what we have.

It is sorta pretty, but I will be glad to see some sunshine.

 we have been invited to sell at Roses & Rust.
Originally I had told them that I was busy with another show, but now we get to go!
So look for us there on Saturday, June 4th.

I will be doing another post about Roses & Rust.

The Antique Gardener in Sutter Creek

Pin It
Last week my husband and I took a little road trip out to Jackson and Sutter Creek.  I wanted to see a shop of someone that we see at
 The Sacramento Antique Faire every month.  
I was not disappointed.

Everywhere you look there are beautiful displays.

The shop used to be an old house.  The rooms are full of treasures.

French farm table.
Out back Aimee has a garden with plants for purchase.

Old wood sign.
You can take a free class to learn how to create a miniature garden like this.
The Antique Gardener will celebrate their 10th Anniversary on June 10th with tea in the garden and 10% off storewide.

The Antique Gardener
80 Main Street
Sutter Creek, Ca 95685
11:00 to 5:00 closed Tuesdays

I'm so glad we made the trip and it really wasn't as far as I thought it would be.
If you get the chance, go see Aimee and her cute shop.

(Aimee's son and his friend, cute little guys)

Thank you Aimee, I love my plant.
