Mother’s Day Finds and Market Cart Liner Factory Part 2

When my husband asked me what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day, I told him I wanted to go to the coast for the day with my family. I could have stayed home and worked on the many projects I have started, but for me, it was more important to spend time with my loved ones.

The day at the coast actually turned out beautiful and sunny. We went out for a late breakfast, hit a few antique shops and thrift stores and walked on the beach for a bit.  We ended the day having an early dinner at the Rogue Public House in Astoria. 

Here are the goodies I found that day.


The lovely floral (anemones?) painting is probably one of my favorite finds of the day. I don’t know if I love the painting or the frame more.  I also got a cute made in England cotton half slip, linen and lace runner, stencils, belt buckle, old bottles, a cute peachy pink vase and a jar of buttons.


Another cool find was this box of misc. numbers and letters and collagey stuff. Not sure what I’m going to do with it, but the price was so good, I just couldn’t leave it there.

And finally, the best find of the day was this


A cool, old 1928 etched mirror in a lovely frame. I found this beauty at the Seaside Antique Mall (sorry for the poor picture~cloudy today) for a very good price and my dealer discount made it even better.  This one will be headed to my Stars booth and I have the perfect place to hang it.

Thought you might want to see how the Market Cart Liner Factory is going, so I snapped a picture of my cart army.


I actually have 10 liners cut out and am almost done with my fourth liner.  I had so much fun putting together the fabrics and I have to say they are turning out pretty cute. My goal is to finish sewing the liners in the next couple days so hopefully I will have some completed cart pictures to share soon. I’ll be back tomorrow with a White Wednesday post as I have some cute vintage whiteness to show you.

On a final note, I just want to do a shout out to my good friend Jeanne.  You know Jeanne, right? Here she is!


Isn’t she so cute? She’s not only cute, she’s super talented and just released her Spring/Summer line on her website Jeanne Oliver Designs. If you haven’t already, please check out her lovely items.  The dresses and ruffled bags are my favorites!

That’s all for now! Happy Tuesday!
