On the road again...

Opening for business...soon...

Well...we're hitting the road to the great state of Kentucky - Burlington, to be exact. It's our first flea market of the season, and we're ready to set it up and sell it!!! We've got some great stuff and wanted to share a few pieces with y'all (getting into the spirit of the trip south - and actually back to my roots - my Mom was born in Kentucky...)!

Terri and I are heading out Friday (trailer in tow - and packed to the roof...), and picking up our two best junking buddies in Columbus - Ellen and Ericka. We're planning on hitting a few of our favorite spots in the Columbus area, and maybe some new found favorites along the way - we'll definitely take the scenic route...! Set up is on Saturday - so that's when we put our traveling buddies to work (oops, they don't know yet!!). It's going to be great girl fun, and hopefully a money maker for us too!! (so we can buy more...I know you guys understand how that goes...!)

Busy, busy, busy...
We've been fixing, painting, sewing, glueing, and pricing our fingers off the last few weeks - and now we're all packed up and ready to go. Praying for nice weather and lots of new customers! If anyone is in the area, we're at the Boone County Fairgrounds this Sunday, April 19th. The link: You'll see our sign "Nostalgia's Cottage" and of course all our wonderful painted furniture and great vintage and junk home decor! A little bit of rust, and lots of white!!! Also - lots of great handcrafted stuff too - pincushions, button bouquets, collages, flea bags, etc... (all using vintage/antique materials).

Here's your "sneak preview":

Some great old boxes, a farm table, and a fabulous sideboard...
An old needlepoint - with lots of meaning...
A fabulous waterfall vanity (here's the you'll see the before - a definite improvement)...
See what I mean??? It was screaming for a makeover! Terri and I did this collage together - hard to part with this one - we had too much fun doing this one - and made a huge mess in her loft too...Garden tools, anyone???
A shelf I made from an old drawer front...lots of possibilities for seasonal decoration.
Some great old feeders - great junk, don't ya think?
A "smoke-free" smoking stand - will look darling on a porch with a plant on top!
This box is super sweet - and we didn't even have to paint it! Next stop...Springfield Extravaganza...

We just keep going, and going, and going, and going... This isn't a new picture, but it's us...singing "on the road again"...
