White, Chippy, Worn & Loved

and it's White Wednesday.  This is how I would have described my booth at Zapp Hall with a touch of Fall and Robin's Egg Blue as well.  I can't seem to depart from adding touches of blue to my booth.  I love the contrast of this color against the white.  I have to first say that Rachel Ashwell also must have loved this color because she bought two really sweet pieces, a cute blue bench and a medicine cabinet that had touches of pink peeking through the blue.  I always seem so star struck whenever she has come into my space and the sweet comment she wrote in my book during her book signing just added to the excitement.  I'll do a whole other post on her book signing.

What you first saw when you came into my booth was the white table in the first photo of the slide show:

Ironstone, thread, and silver all piled together with raffia ~ does it get in any better than this when these are all my favorite elements.

A mile high of suitcases was also in my booth.  Ready for you use as an end table or wherever your imagination takes you to use them.  During this show, I saw where someone had taken lots of suitcases and attached them together, painted them all white, and that was her checkout counter.  So cleaver.

Silver, White, and Robins Egg Blue.  Can you see the colors I am going to be using for Christmas.  I'll have all these colors at the next show, Accumulations, that we are headed to at the end of the month.  More on that in another post.

I always love ribbons.  I think they add interest to wherever you use them.  Click on the slide show for more photo's of my space.

The things on this galvanized table kept selling and I was constantly redoing.  I just loved what one vendor said.  She said "there's the girl that sells things and just clicks her heals and it's magically redone again".  That was so sweet.

I also borrowed a few pics from Karla's Facebook page.  You can see more of her great photo's here

Thanks to all the customers that came out and to all the awesome new friends that I made and to everyone that stopped by.  I have so many posts to do, the blog party, the people I met, places we went, so stay tuned.  I hope you don't get bored on all the posts I'll do.  There are some really talented people in this biz.  Happy White Wednesday.  Be sure and visit Kathleen's blog for all the particpants.

On another note, I would like to please ask that you say a prayer for my mother-in-law.  She's currently in the hospital and just this week have found out she has cancer.  Our family is in a tough situation as she's always been such a strong individual and now they aren't giving her much time to live.  This is so sudden as she's only been not feeling well a few weeks.  I know my husband would really appreciate your prayers as would I.


  1. Your mother in law will be in my prayers. My husband just found out a friend of his about the same age just found out he has cancer. I wish they would find a cure, it seems like more and more people are getting it.
