vintage fall market weekend 2014...

Last weekend was our annual
Vintage Fall Market
at the

The shop looked amazing all decked out for Autumn!
I thought I would share some photos with you from opening day...








I am sad to see Summer go but seeing all these wonderful displays has made me want to decorate my house for Fall.
I actually did a bit today which I will show you next week when I share my living room makeover.

If you would like to see more from opening day of our Vintage Fall Market, please check out the shop's Facebook page here and my Facebook page here.

den makeover reveal...finally...

This beautiful old frame finally made me get my act together and take some photos of my recently made over den...


I just love the finish ~ white, grey, a hint of pale blue with some dark wax imperfectly applied...


It's been leaning here and there in the room waiting for me to decide if I wanted to keep it or bring it in the shop.
I'm so glad I kept it...




Of course it would work in one of my favorite spots in my home...


Don't they say that if you buy what you love, the pieces will work together?


I love the way all my vintage whites pop against my grey walls now...



There are still a few things left to do (like paint the front of the keyboard drawer on the desk) and I would like to find something to hang over the desk (like a really cool vintage sign)...


Oh and do something with all those computer wires!  Jim used the last of the salvage wood he found by the side of the road and made a "door" to lean in the corner to help with that.  I would like to put something on the floor in front of it (any suggestions?) and I am thinking about hanging my favorite vintage mirror that started my mirror collection on it...



I love that Jim repurposed the desk with salvage wood and I also love the old desk chair I found junkin' this summer down in Plymouth...



The other side of the room holds the biggest changes in the room.  I changed out the mantel mirror for an old beauty I had been coveting at the shop for a while...


I also changed out the love seat I had there with two chairs from Target as well as new pillows from Pier One...


I am still using my Mom's table that I shared with you in a sneak peek last month...




Here is the room looking in from the living room...




I am very happy with the way the room turned out!

I am in the home stretch of getting ready for the Wrentham Country Store's annual Vintage Fall Market Weekend so I promise to share the living room reveal after the show.
And, you know I'll do a post or two on the show itself!
For now, here is a little peek into the living room...


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

savoring summer...

Hi, hello, how are you?!

I'm still here ~ I've just been savoring summer!

I have also been being very thrifty as I finish my den and living room makeover.

I picked my own house and found this old table that was my Mom's to put in my den.  I like the contrast of the dark wood against the light grey walls and next to my new light chairs...


Sorry for the bad photo...no natural light today, just lots of rain!

I hope you enjoyed another sneak peek and I hope you are savoring summer too!!

Thank you for stopping by!

summer favorites at the shop and a sneak peek at my living room makeover...

Thought I would pop in and share some of my favorite treasures I've spied this summer at the Wrentham Country Store!

First was this sweet old camping stool that I wish I bought.  It would have been so cute with some pretty retro fabric to brighten up my glamper...

Yes, I am still having a wonderful time camping with family and friends by the lake ~ life is good!

I also loved this old dresser, it would have looked perfect in my den or living room against the grey walls!  It's gone now...


What I did get was this rusty old bucket from my own booth and the wonderful old ladder from Jeannie's booth...

...oh and here's a little peek at my recently painted grey living room...


I'm still trying to add the finishing touches, hoping flea market season will do the trick!
Speaking of flea markets, I did find this pretty piece of fabric that I might have made into a pillow for my love seat...


I love the pretty blues and greens, they compliment my dried hydrangeas.  It even has a hint of my love seat color so I thought it would help blend it into the room and add some interest.  What do you think...


Speaking of pretty blues, I am in love with this sweet dresser at the shop and want to squeeze it in somewhere in my house...


I probably shouldn't hesitate according to the sign at the shop...


Have you heard that the Wrentham Country Store is giving away a gift certificate each month during the summer?  If you live local please stop by the shop, browse around to see what's new...a few of the Shop Girls have moved their spaces and we also have a few new Shop Girls!  While you are there, fill out an entry form ~ you just may be lucky enough to win a $100 gift certificate to the shop!
