~White Wednesday # 115~

Time.......where does it go?  It's hard for me to believe there's only one week left of summer vacation before I send my kids back to school.  I,  for one am going to miss the slow paced lazy days of Summer. 

You know summer will be coming to an end when you see the Queen Anne's Lace all along the country roads.  They are such a simple, yet intricate flower that remind me of the olden days when things were a bit slower.  I wonder if time flew by for them like it does for me?  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

My featured blog today is Whimsical Musings

Cindy has a wonderful blog and Etsy store where she sells all kinds of creations she makes and is currently featured in the newest edition of Romantic Homes magazine.  Please take a moment to stop by and check it out and also congratulate her on her accomplishments:-)

  I also want to send prayers and thoughts to all affected by the horrible storms on the East Coast this past weekend.  I hope everyone is safe:-)

~Cubby Love~

I had a great show this weekend with beautiful warm weather and lots of things going home with new owners.  This great metal cubby was one of them and actually this is the only area of my booth that I got any photos of before all the people came.  I want to thank everyone one who came out to buy from me.  Wishing you all a wonderful week.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday # 114~

Taking a break to share with you a little sneak peek of a few whites that will be at my booth this Saturday at the Camas Vintage Street Faire.  Am I the only one who can't resist statuary?  I love it in all shapes and sizes.

Mix it up with some natural elements like coral and antlers and you have the perfect vignette.

My daughter, Nichole has been busy making her necklaces and here is just a sampling of what will be for sale.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

Today I'm pleased to be featuring Sarah from Roost ReImagined who I met a little over a year ago.  She has a tremendous amount of energy and talent that she puts into all her shows that she does with her Mom.  They are both so sweet and have the best displays and vignettes along with many creations they've made.

I especially love this loveseat she made out of an old metal headboard piled high with comfy pillows. 

They will also be at the Camas sale this Saturday, so if you are in the neighborhood stop by both our booths and if you can't make it please take a minute to check out Sarah's blog.

~White Wednesday # 113~

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  I had a great junking weekend and found tons of stuff, but my favorite part of it was getting to meet up with the lovely Rene' of Miss Gracie's House.  She was in town and wanted to get together so we met at a local street fair going on and also was able to do some old fashioned pickin' at a barn sale.  We found all kinds of great rusty junk and had a great time visiting.  I wish she lived closer so we could do it more often:-)  I'll be sharing some of my purchases over the next week as I'm getting ready to do the Camas Vintage Street Sale on Sat.  August 27th.

I've been wanting to share these white impatients all lined up in pots on my windowbox.  This was something simple my husband made for me with just some metal brackets with a board lying across it and some thick rusty wire to help keep the pots in place. 

I love how I can enjoy these pots filled with flowers from both the inside and out.  I love the simplicity of these flowers and they do well here because they only get early morning sun.  Enjoy!  xoxo K. 

My feature today is Linda at Delight.  I've recently come across her inspiring blog and am so glad that I did.  You'd have to go over and check it out along with all the lovely things she creates. 

I'm also linking up with Cottage Flora @ Fishtail Cottage

~Pretty in Pink~

I wanted to share another beautiful bouquet my Mom gave me.  This time in all "pink" flowers.  Isn't it beautiful?  Look at her creativity.....taking a plain glass jar and adding some lace(an old cuff from a dress with buttons) and pink buttons at the bottom of the jar.  It gives it such a vintage feel.  

The pink roses and zinnias are some of my favorites.  My daughter Brenna wanted a photo with these beauties.  Pink is her favorite color and after her shower she was reading on the porch so I took them outside to sit next to my favorite birdcage.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday # 112~

I've been working on a few things to take up to my booth tomorrow this afternoon.  I found some great ironstone platters last week and a brown transferware gravy boat all at the Goodwill.  Sometimes it pays to stop in.  I've never seen brown transferware there before and it does have a couple cracks, but for the price, I don't mind.  

I'll be taking this great old white cupboard perfect for holding all your transferware or ironstone dishes along with an old tote that also looks good filled with platters.  Better get back to work:-)  Enjoy! xoxo K.

Today I'm featuring Abby from Abby's Paperie Garden.  Her blog is full of all kinds of eye candy of some great things she has made.  She was recently featured in Summer 2011 Somerset Life magazine.  That's very exciting news and I'm sure she'd love if you stop in for a visit.
