Peonies, 2 years after planting they are becoming more established! Love them.....
Note: Where have I been? My life in pictures these last couple of weeks


Getting ready for the Folk show in May.....one rule I had was use supplies that were on hand. I even used a stamp from my CA shop days!

Stamens in a divided wood box

The vintage galvanized tin metal sheets--were recovered from my brother's "metal pile" last fall!
Green glassware; one of my favorites
Assorted vintage finds.......
Displaying things "mercantile style".........



Love the things Kathy finds......{findings @ summerhouse}


Stash made a presence.....

These chairs were stacked in a fun "teetering display"

Scene from the Folk magazine area.....

McMaster & Storm
Brushes and this & that..... McMaster & Storm

Judith of Bloomsbury Loft.....she is always so vivacious and a blast to talk shop with!
Bloomsbury Loft's assemblage of pillows.......

Love the office sign.....

This guy sold out of these chairs

Creative Displays.....

Fun displays at the Vintage Marketplace {Springfield Extravaganza}

This booth had 2 twin beds; matching already sold of course!

On a Monday we made our errand running more fun with a pit stop at Chipotle.....here I ran into Katie of Katie's Pencil Box! That was a fun surprise!
Relatives visiting from Kansas......my first cousin Sara! She is 16 years younger than me and her mom is 16 years older than me. We have a ball together--I keep thinking she should finish her Master's in Ohio.....hint!
The upstairs Butler's pantry at Coldwater Cafe in Tipp City. I couldn't resist snapping a photo as I loved this practical & pretty wee service kitchen!
We ate outside & pretended our vacation was a week long and not just a day long!

Tea please!
The food at Coldwater is fresh and homemade.......

Details I liked on this linen top.......{shopping Tipp City}

Awesome pine cabinet marked down to $285....

It has adjustable shelves and would be a great larder for your kitchen! {or storage for a bathroom!}

Old store crate.....loved it however, it was out of my budget.


Another lovely display from Kathy {findings @ summerhouse}

My husband and I have been stopping by Tipp City every Dec. for several years. We have a great time. We LOVE Coldwater!!! Actually I think that's the reason he's happy to go there. It's so nice seeing all the Ohio vendors. I remember WAY back when Stash was called Tea cups in Time and was located in a darling old house in Lakewood. I still miss that cute place. She had to move. Do you believe they torn down the tiny old house for a parking lot?!!!!
Best,
Kathy

How I wish I could have jumped on a plane with a friend to attend this event and to meet you in person, Kara. It looks like it was absolutely enchanting! xoxo
