Vintage Fall Market Weekend

This weekend (Sat, Sun, Mon) is our Vintage Fall Market Show at the shop.  I was there till late last night sprucing and feathering my space. Let me take you on a mini tour.

This is one of my spaces...wanted to center it around this shabby old rusty crib.  I have used this in the past for seating on my porch
Here's another view... I enjoyed pulling the fall colors into my space.
And...yet another
I adore that painted firkin below...it's HUGE!
Those little lucite holders I embellished finally found there way into the shop
Here is Mary Ellen's space (she is the shop owner) Her displays are to die for and are truly magazine worthy!

Look at those metal crosses in the bucket. I just HAD to buy me one of those. I 'll show you a close up pic in a later post.
Her displays will stop you in your tracks!
Lucky for me I have to work at the shop tomorrow...I'll be sure to bring my checkbook with me... :)
This is my friend Mary's space (aka Chanel's Shabby Rose)  I'm lovin' all those clock faces!
Here's another shot of her space. Mary does a fabulous job refinishing furniture!
Wanted to show you another shop girl's wares. This is Nancy D.  Aren't those farm style bowls fantastic?
Here's Karen K's space.  She does a beautiful job displaying her finds~
I'm sad to say that my camera quit working after taking these pics!  It kept saying "memory full" and I knew I only had about 12 pics on it.  So.... I wasn't able to take pics of the rest of the girls treasures. :(

When I got home that night, I found the memory stick wasn't pushed in all the way.  Once I fiddled with it, all was well. So tomorrow (Sunday) while working at the shop, I'll take more pics to share from the rest of the WCS  Shop Girls.

Oh...and a special thanks to Sandi's (aka A Cottage Muse)  hubby Jim for hanging my sign and helping with the placement of nails! So appreciated!

Hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!

Hi karen, first of all I want to thank you for your words of encouragement and for holding me up in your prayers. Reading your comment brought tears to my eyes and great joy to my heart. Thank you so much.

It is such a blessing working and creating amongst such talented ladies. Aren't we blessed to be able to this? When "feathering" my booth at CRA I muster up as much self control as possible to keep myself from shopping my paycheck away. lol

Your booth looks absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to see a close-up of the metal cross, I think I'm coveting it already.

I'm off to search the song you mentioned!

God bless you my friend,
