Here we are!  Right on the brink of the Chapel Market, which happens this Saturday, October 25, 2014.  It starts at 9:00 am and admission is $3.00.  (The address is 24 Ring Around Rd, Pike Road, Alabama 36064.)  I will be set up inside the chapel meeting hall, in the same space I was in last year.

I definitely have a soft spot for things made for children.  The small scale just melts me.  My mom and I spotted this little hutch in an antique store and jumped at it immediately.  It had been painted in a white latex over oil, so the latex was peeling off and it was a little dingy.  We sanded it down and gave it a fresh coat of MMSMP Eulalie's Sky with the Bonding Agent added and finished it  (read more …)

Can you handle another furniture makeover?  The Chapel Market is less than a week away and we're getting to the end of the furniture I have worked on for the event.  I picked this dental cabinet up last week while I was shopping for accessories and "smalls" for my booth.  I saw this and just couldn't pass it up.  All of the little drawers and glass knobs caught my attention and the low price  (read more …)

I keep a running list in the back of my mind of antiques I'd like to buy if ever the piece, price and timing are right.  Through the years, I've found some of those industrial cart, a dress form, an ironstone cake pedestal to name a few.  One thing on that list was an antique cash register.  I thought it would be so fun to use at sales and events.  And honestly, it would just look  (read more …)

It has been a marathon getting ready for The Chapel Market, which is just over a week away, but it's been so fun, too.  I am most focused and intentional when I'm working towards a specific goal.  And this time has been even more fun, because I've had a lot of great help and the amazing studio space to work in.  I've been relishing it!  I have been a little overzealous with filling the "green  (read more …)

Pine Cone Hill 20th Anniversary Bed & Giveaway

Miss Mustard Seed-2174

I mentioned earlier this week that a big giveaway was coming up...the biggest one I've ever had on my blog.  Well, this is it. I started working with Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert a few years ago when they sent a rug to borrow for my home office makeover.  It was being photographed for Flea Market Style magazine and they asked me to pick out a rug with some pop.  I fell in love with that  (read more …)

furniture feature friday | favorites & link party


 I've been working away on furniture myself this week, for the Chapel Market, so it's been nice to take a little break and get some inspiration from last week's links.  Here are a few of the standouts... Danielle from Finding Silver Pennies gives a fall tour of her home and there are so many beautiful pieces of furniture that I just had to share.  I especially love this wooden bench with the  (read more …)

Today in the studio, Kriste and I worked creating two very different Halloween/fall tables.  In the one I'm showing today, we went with a black/orange/spooky classic Halloween theme.  Neither of us are big on decorating for Halloween, but this was so much fun to put together and we both love how it turned out. We featured Flapper Black MMS GGG (Miss Mustard Seed's German Glass Glitter) on  (read more …)
