It's Luckett's Time again...

I decided to do the Luckett's Spring market again this year and started setting up yesterday.
Well, Mother Nature cooperated long enough for us to set up, although they had to move my spot due to flooded and muddy fields. We had to carry everything across the main field to the booth so we wouldn't get stuck in the mud. Talk about sore muscles!

Anyway... I'm not complaining. the torrential rains are passing and tomorrow promises to be a great day.

I went a different way this year, with more furniture and my first forays into milk paint!
Come out and see us on May 17th & 18th, at the Old Luckett's Store grounds in Leesburg, Va.

My booth this year.....had to cover everything for now because of the weather!

 Here are just a few of my offerings...

Vintage rocking chair with bird stencils

Art Deco low console or child's desk

Gorgeous painted antique mirror

More mirrors- with applies medallions

  Hope to see you there!

Christmas Past....

This week I finally decided to go through all the Christmas Ornaments that my late husband and I collected and hung on out tree each year in order to pare down.
I decided to keep the beautiful glass ones (mostly animals) that he gave me each year we were together (of course) and pick of few others to give to charity.
In the mix were a few from both our childhoods that I thought some of my customers might enjoy, not that I've decided to let them go-

I will be listing more this week, including some classic glass shiny brights from my collection and recent finds.

Fresh Finds

This week I've been posting a lot of white items in the store..
maybe because it's been so hot and white has a natural calm, cooling effect.
 Maybe I should start buying blue for August!

Anyway-it's always a favorite in the vintage world, and never goes out of style!

My First Out door Show at Luckett's Spring Market

Wow, am I exhausted!

Doing an outdoor show is a lot of work, but this is such a great one, it's a happy exhaustion.

This was my first time getting into the Luckett's Spring Market in Leesburg, Va.,
sponsored by the talented folks at The Luckett's Store & Design House.

The weather forecast was not good, but somehow it held out with just one small rain shower.

I did well for my first time I think, and look forward to next year (assuming they invite me back)!

My booth!

Lots of great vendors with cool stuff....

Early Blooms...

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.

After the horrible events in Boston yesterday, and the all consuming news reports, I found solice in my garden on this sunny spring afternoon.

There's nothing like the buzzing of the busy bees and the soothing sound of trickling water to soothe your soul.
Take pleasure in the little things every day.....

A Little Taste of Ireland

Well, I hope you all had a lovely St.Patrick's Day whether you're Irish or not!
I happen to be about three quarters Irish. My grandfather came straight through Ellis
Island from the "land of saints and scholars".
But I digress..this post is supposed to be about bread - soda bread in particular.
I'm not prone to cooking Irish "type" food but this year, found a simple recipe that
turned out great!

Doesn't it look pretty? And it was really simple..which makes it even better.
I served it up with a little beef stew cooked in the Crock Pot, add a little Irish music..and you'r set!

Here's the recipe....

white soda bread

Let me know if you try it and how you like it!
