I'm Still Here and More to Come...

Wow...time sure does pass by fast!  It's been over a month since I posted and reflecting back over the last several weeks does nothing but make me tired.

Between taking care of three spaces all located no less than 25 miles from my house and each at different points of the compass, I find my days are usually on the road or frantically getting things ready to take to the next place.  Not to mention that we have two huge Markets to get ready for next month.  Whewwwww....what was I thinking??

To add to that, my poor sweet hubby was out of work for a couple of weeks with a serious pinched nerve and was not able to do anything.  I felt so sorry for him, but couldn't help feeling totally helpless without him on the other end helping me move the big stuff.  Luckily, he's getting treatment for it and has gone back to work...but he still has to be careful. 

And the weather.....let's not forgot that horrid weather we've had over the last month!!!  I can only do so much in the house and am thankful that the sun was shining this week and I was able to get some projects done - or at least started.

One of those is this adorable table that I picked up.  A 1940s or 50s table with a butterfly leaf and four really fun chairs. 


 Sweet.

And look at these cute chairs!


There are four of them....one didn't get the memo for the photo shoot.

My vision for this set is something that is fun, sea worn and beach cottage worthy. These chairs are perfect for a little dressing up....some kind of graphic on each of the backs and I already have the fabric picked out...an old feed sack.  Perfect in color and texture.  I plan to make the leaf pop with color...still thinking on that one....

The table already has two coats of paint, but it's on hold right now while I finish a few things for the booths.  I hope to get the entire set finished this week....and then it'll be heading to the
Vintage Home Market next month!

If you are close to Richmond, Virginia, this show is full of great vendors and fun!  One of my most favorites to do and I really love the promoters!  They go up and beyond to make this show spectacular.


Just a mere two weeks following, we'll be heading to the infamous Lucketts Spring Market.  They will be a frantic two weeks....

I promise to post sneak peeks throughout the month!  We have a trailer full of "project pieces" ready to get all purdy for the shows. :)

In between all of the business stuff, we get to enjoy watching both of our grandsons play baseball.  Ohhhhh, how I love this time of year!

 
'til next time!
