Outdoor Spaces

Have you discovered Pinterest yet?  If not, you can thank me later ;)   Be prepared to spend time, I mean like the equivalent of when you first discovered facebook kinda time...... 

Every summer I vow to myself I am going to spend more time outside, enjoying our yard.  Nine times out of ten, the dishes in the sink, the laundry, or one or all of my children, are calling my name.  Gone are the days when I can truly relax.   Maybe, just maybe, this summer will be different. 

Happy Weekend!

Lucketts Finds

As promised- here are my finds from Lucketts.  It's probably a good thing I had limited space in the truck coming home because I would have ended up spending a whole heck of a lot more!

These were for my husband- he's been after some old seltzer bottles for a while now.   A set of six, with the crate, for an awesome deal.

I didn't have to walk far for this sweet piece by Cassie of Primitive and Proper.
It's part of an old vanity. The drawers would be perfect for holding papers; they're about 8 1/2 x 11 inches, probably slightly larger. I was on the fence trying to decide if I would keep it for myself or give it to the girls for their trinkets.  Well, as you can probably guess, it's now in the girls' room.  They played tea party with it for a while, and now it sits on their pretty!

Check out this spool of wired "pearls" from Findings at Summerhouse.
 I can't wait to create with these:

Remember this post?   Well, look what came home with me....
filled with ice, perfect for serving cold drinks at a backyard party:

I've been out picking this past week, so I'll be sharing some more finds with you soon!

Here are some shots from the Wild Rose tents at the Lucketts Antique Market:
(you should be able to click on each photo to enlarge it)
This was the left side of our tent.
Those chairs (a set of four) almost didn't make it to Lucketts.  I hated to part with such solid Ethan Allen chairs. I finished them while we were revamping our dining room, but I needed a third side chair, so I decided to go with a set of shield backs.   I'm glad I did because the woman who purchased these had driven all the way from Ohio and was thrilled to find these chairs. It made me feel a whole lot better about selling them!  

This hand painted French Market hutch by Wendy and Lindsey got ALOT of attention!
This was the right side of our tent, and to the right of this tent was Cassie of Primitive and Proper and Emily of Misadventures of a Furniture Fairy.  They are so sweet!  I'm not sure why I didn't take any photos with them! I'm sure it had something to do with my allergies kicking in late Saturday, and by Sunday I was a sneezing, sniffling mess! 

This reproduction Swedish clock deserves a whole 'nother post in itself.   It turned into a labor of love for my husband and me. Another piece I wasn't sure I wanted to part with, but I was glad to see it go to an adorable couple furnishing their first home.

We were diagonally across from the Chartreuse & Co. tent, which worked out well since a number of us from Wild Rose had items for sale there as well.

It was so much fun getting to hang out with all of the Wild Rose girls; it's not very often we are all in the same place at the same time!
I finally got to meet Jami of Freckled Laundry, but as I said, by Sunday I was a sniffling, sneezing mess, so I'm sure she wasn't too impressed!   Sarah, The Thriftress, stopped by our tent too! And of course we got to catch up with Marian, a.k.a. Miss Mustard Seed.

I'll try to post pictures of my Lucketts finds soon!  I'm hoping to get over to the shop tonight for wine & cheese Thursday....
