Change is Good/A New Name

After thinking a long time, I decided to change my business name to Pretty Old Things. Still love me some roses, but the new name goes with both of the Cottage and Vintage Neutrals styles I have in my two booths at Monticello Antiques and Stars Antiques.

Working on setting up a new blog. Seems I have forgotten quite a lot since setting up this one several years ago. In the meantime, you can follow along on my Facebook page. I’ll be posting pictures of projects, new vintage finds and provide updates on any shows/special events I may be involved with.

Hoping to get my long planned for Etsy store up and running in October or November too. So, that will be something new! I hope you will come along with me on my new adventures.

Added note: I will be leaving this blog open, but won’t be posting here any more.

Fall Premier Show/Enjoying Summer


I will be in the window for the Month of September during the Fall Premier Show. Each year this fabulous show is eagerly awaited for by local shoppers. I have been hunting and hoarding all summer some lovely things to bring to the window. I am excited to put it all together. It’s hard to believe that September is almost here!

Here is just a sneak peek at a little of what I’ll be bringing.

I had so much fun putting together these blingy frames.

On another note, we took our vintage trailer camping last weekend to the beach. I’m happy to report that we had an amazing time and I am ready to go again. We are slowly doing minor repairs and I am waiting for the fabric I special ordered for the curtains. I can’t wait to get it and to get busy sewing. I’m in no hurry to do much more at this time. Plenty of time for that later. My husband already has a fishing trip and hunting trip lined up so the trailer will be getting lots of use this summer/fall.
