waiting for spring...

Since the completion of our Pinterest project in our kitchen
(you can read all about it here),
I needed to find a new spot for my farmhouse sign.
It did not take long to find the perfect place for it...


I had been shopping and treasure hunting for months for a sign to hang over our desk in the den.
Looks like I needed to shop my own house!



Being stuck in the house during so many snow days lately, I did some more "shopping" around my house and put together this new vignette on the other side of the den...


These pretty old trophy cups were in my studio...



According to the rule I need one more (you know, display things in odd numbers)...


Shopping my own house, or moving a few things from one room to another, makes me feel like the room has a new look and I did not spend any money!
(are you reading this Jim?)


I love the color of these dried hydrangeas, they are the perfect reminder that Spring will be here soon...

I know there are only 24 more days until Spring
(and 68 more days til my camping season begins), 
but right now it doesn't seem like all this snow will ever melt!


Are you enjoying an early Spring or are you buried under too much snow too?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

new year, new look...

The new year has brought many changes and a new look to the
Wrentham Country Store...


The front room is now home to 3 of our 9 new vendors...


We carry the Maison Blanche line of chalk paint (looking forward to trying it out)...


The new Shop Girls slowly joined us starting in January...




By the first of February, we had a full house again...




As I have said many times, these new vendors are joining a team of talented people who I am very lucky to work with.
The finds they bring in and pieces they repurpose has me at times sneaking things in to my nest before Jim gets home...




Mary Ellen left the Shop at the end of the year and we all wish her well.
She is going to be hosting pop up sales, the first coming at the end of April.  I'll share details as the date gets closer.
I'm very thankful she took a chance on me and welcomed me to the Shop back in 2009.
I'll miss our Saturday mornings together!

If you live local and haven't been to the Shop in a while and are going stir crazy with all the snow lately (with more to come over the next few days), stop by and see what's new!

We are hosting an Open House on
Thursday, February 19th from 6 to 9 pm!
Bring some friends and make it a night out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

winsmith mill market...

Tonight I thought that I would take you on a little tour through a few of the shops at the
Winsmith Mill Market in Norwood, MA.
My second space I moved into last December is located inside
this Mill at
The Vintage Peacock
which is where the tour begins...










Just outside The Vintage Peacock is a cute little cafe...
Le Petite Cafe getting ready to open for the day, has plenty of seating nearby to take a break from shopping or is a great place for your husband to wait while you shop.

As you wander through the Mill past the Cafe, there are so many quaint little shops along the way...



This shop is where you'll find my friend Karen of A Shabby Moment in Time...

Karen used to be at the Wrentham Country Store.  I haven't bumped into her yet at the Mill but am looking forward to it!

I spied this old beauty of a mirror...take a look at the wall it reflects, I love that too...

Strolling along, the artwork on the walls is done by the Mill's resident artist Sara Lamb...

The beautiful shop, Madden Blue, sells Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...

I love the clever way they display the colors...

Moving right along we hit one room with three great shops sharing the space...

G T Modern sells unique lighting fixtures repurposed from vintage pieces and he also makes custom pieces...




This room filled up fast with customers as I was talking to the owner of GT Modern and didn't want to take pictures with random people in them!

There are a few more shops I will share in another post soon!

The Shops at the Winsmith Mill Market are open every Friday and Saturday from 10 til 4 and Sundays noon til 4.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
