What I am finding

First week in March has come and gone. February flew by. So much going on and no time to blog. I have been on a trip down south (Southern California) and a trip to the Oregon Coast and during and in between there is always shopping.

I made a big decision at the end of last year to take some time off from doing shows. After five years of doing the fabulous Farm Chicks in Spokane, WA, I decided it was time for a break. I love doing shows, getting to sell my goods and meet fabulous people, but as I’ve said before, it is a lot of work. That said, I have really been focusing my efforts on my booths and it has been paying off. My sales have been great and life is good.

If you’ve been following my Facebook page you have seen a bit of what I’ve been finding out there. Here are some things I have found just in the last couple weeks.

white vanity

This cutie just needed some sanding and new glass knobs and will be off to Stars this weekend.

2 little dressers

Two little dirty white dressers. Have already been cleaned up and I sold the one on the right to my Mom to use in her sewing room.

eugene finds

These goodies were found on one of my trips to Eugene to see my daughter at U of O.

vintage tablecloth

I found this lovely tablecloth at the flea market last weekend.

flea market bits

Found these goodies and the flea market too.

flea market jewelry

You know I always love finding blingy bits.

yard long landscape

Love this yard long landscape painting.

three aprons

Vintage aprons are always fun to find.

floral watercolor

I had to chase down the dealer of this pretty floral watercolor.

And finally, my favorite recent find (and a keeper for now) is this

antique rose painting

I thought it was a print, but my husband thinks it’s a painting. The back has a neat old Meier & Frank label on it so I don’t want to take it apart. I love it now matter what.

So, there you have it. Just some of the things I have been finding lately. There’s more, but some have escaped my camera and have gone directly to my booths.

At the beginning of this post I mentioned my decision to take a break from doing shows. Well, I have some exciting news. I have been asked, along with my good friend Mitzi, to do a space at the Monticello Spring Home and Garden show which starts in April and runs all through May! I am super excited to be collaborating with Mitzi. She always has great style and finds the best stuff. As we get closer, I’ll be giving updates and posting some sneak peeks. TTFN!
