New Coffee cups

Hi Friends, I have been working feverishly on our Mother's Day sale. I was at an auction and  found this set of dishes that I thought I was going to put on the sale. When I got them home I loved them so much that I decided to put them in my kitchen. This is the cup with the little colored daisy and colored inside but take a look at our cups right next to it!
Is this crazy? This is the size a coffee cup used to be and look at what we use now...I am speechless.
And yesterday I was part of a unique art show....more on that late!

Preparing For the Spring Show!

  I have been working on the spring sale but also I will be attending a craft sale right before Easter. So I am working with a few bunnies and many Spring flowers.
And what would Spring be without birds?
I have been working 12 hour days because I know once it gets nice I will have much to do outside also.
There is much to do but it is fun getting ready to meet old friends again.
   Much to tell and rest needed!

Yellow is the thing

I was ready for a little sunshine so I decided  to bring a little inside with some paint. This is hazy dawn and it really is a nice soft color. My dd saw it and said that she wanted it for her house so it is in the shop for now but it will have a home with her after our May show.
I also gave two chairs a little gray paint and when it dried I gave it a white wash also but I guess I forgot to take a picture of that...I will share that again when they are recovered! Working on a few other pieces but not much progress yet..more soon.

Painting the Mantle, fireplace surround!

I spent the day with a paint brush again today. I wanted to change the looks of this mantle that we purchased so I decided on black and I am so in love with the finish.
My dh almost fainted that I would paint an oak fireplace but then he loved it when it was done.
I seriously thought about white but I am happy with the black for now and I can always change it later!
I distressed the edges and it really came to life. I have not decided on the inside just yet but I better decide soon since it is almost dry! Hope you like it!

A New Addition!

 While I have been showing you a few pieces of furniture that I have been working on there is another surprise that I have been waiting to share. I am excited to tell you that we are expanding Vyntage Barn for our May sale. We have been working very hard for the last few weeks trying to get the building ready and today I finished painting the space. Tomorrow we will put the molding up and then it will be complete. I have an army of people lined up for Sunday,  after a large lunch for all, we will be moving a ton of furniture. I am excited for the help and I am excited to finally be able to move everything into place.
   I have been picking up so many new items but they remain boxed since my room was not complete so after Sunday, our day of celebration and food and family, the work will begin.
   I will try to share the moments with you when we start on Sunday and of course I will show you the new area as I work on it! We have about 6 weeks and that sounds like a long time but I have a show in april and I have so much to do outside as well....oh so much to do! I will keep you posted but I just wanted to share!!

More finishes!

I have been painting the final pieces for the sale and I thought I would show you have cute the side tables turned out. I love the little decorative designs and the wavy edges too!
I distressed them and they were even better!
How fun is that? I also painted 6 chairs and a how did I forget to take pictures.
And then I have a little rabbit to inspire my next craft project!

Adding A Little Spring

I have working on a few crafts and I thought I would share. I purchased these little pots and tray for the next Vyntage Barn sale but until then I thought I would work on how I would display them. I saw this little craft on one of my boards at Pintrest and I thought then would be perfect for these little pots. I actually made 5 of them total. They were easy but a little time consuming.

Again, these are the little pots and I love the spring colors! Although the tray does not go with it, I love putting them together.
I changed out my mantle to a beachy theme. Even though we had blizzard conditions yesterday and 3 degrees currently, I am dreaming of warm weather.
  I then added the little craft flower balls and I am just in love with them. I sure hope my customers love them as much as I do!
