Sunday, February 27, 2011 we go!

The unloading and styling begins....

Setting up the tent.  That's not easy on unlevel ground..we only broke one pole and had to use cinder blocks to level the thing.

Waiting patiently to be put in their place.
Aren't they cute?

I can see something coming together slowly here.

Me, Kathy and Jim.
Jim has a space in Art Angels and is a big help and a good friend to Renee the owner of Art Angels.

This is Peggy, Kathy and Jim.
Peggy is such a sweet lady. She has 2 spots in Art Angels and another one in Sanford. I can't even imagine keeping up with all that.
She also likes to buy our stuff and that makes us happy.
This is our professional florist Karen!  She is the one who does it all at the shop.
Doing a great job!
I'm sorry it's not a very good picture. You really do need to some and see Karen, she is beautiful!!!

Renee, me, Kathy and Jim.
Renee is the best!  She is so good to us, I didn't expect to gain a good friend with this deal.

Here we are, after Kathy did her magic.
I do help a little, sometimes I even put something is a good spot and Kathy likes it!
That makes me so proud!

TA DA!!!!!
Isn't it beautiful?!!!!
I think so..

And look who showed up!!!!!!
Debbie from Vintage Soul in St Cloud Florida...I'm so honored she came to see US!!!!

Debbie has the most amazing shop.  She redoes furniture in the most beautiful Shabby way.  I showed you her shop here.  Debbie is famous you know...she has done and is doing work the Fifi of Romantic Country magazine.
Check out what she did here....
Did you look?  Isn't it beautiful?!!!!

I really think Kathy out did herself.

We picked the perfect spot.
Look at the picket fence in the back!
It was all ready there and it was only a couple feet wide.

This was suppose to be mine. Kathy shabbied it up and it was beautiful. After it sold she told me she was going to give it to me if it didn't sell. I'm sad...

My chair sold!  And it sold to Debbie, so I was happy.
If it was good enough for Debbie I guess it was good!

I love these sheers. Kathy got them at Ikea.

You just wonder why things don't sell.
This was beautiful.
I guess the right person wasn't there.

Kathy and Rachel.
Rachel is Emily's best friend and they came to help us.  What sweet girls they are.

This is one of Debbie's new aprons she designed.
I had to have it.
It's beautiful!

And another blogger friend showed up!
This is Megan of Little Blue Prints.  She is a mother of 3 boys, she brought Liam with her and what a cutie pie.  Thanks Megan for coming, I hope you liked our shop(booths are for rent ya know..hint hint). Megan is an Interier Designer and is very talented. I met her at Lake Eola Festival last fall.  Check her blog out and see for yourself!

And here are the girls!
Emily and Rachel..
Why didn't I take a picture of Emily and I?!!!(hitting my forehead)..

Look at this!  This is my little brother John.  He brought the family with him and I forgot to take their picture too.
I think my niece and nephew had fun.
Renee did!
Thanks for coming guys!!!!

A little break from all those show pictures.
Isn't he grand!!!!
My Bailey boy.

Pretty Lola B!!!
She is a year old now but I still think she is a baby...just love her..

Me and Debbie at her shop. When I first met her.
This was a surprise finding.
I had never heard of Vintage Soul in St Cloud.
I think I live in a closet sometimes.
Take a look.....

Well, I think that's enough for now.

Vintage Army Litter covers?!!

I saw these at an estate sale. They kept saying they are litters....I always keep listening when I don't know what someone is talking about hoping I will catch on...well I didn't.

So I finally asked what a litter was.
It's the cot they use to carry hurt soldiers on....
They kept telling me they had the wooden poles to go with the canvas.

Well that's not what I saw in them.

They remind me of US mail bags.

Very heavy material.  I love the binding.

With the stamp on the end.

I'm trying to figure out how to do this.  I think I will wash them a couple time to soften them.  I got 4, 3 still in the package as you can see for $2.00 each, half price!
I will show you what I do with these.
Happy Thrifty Thursday to all of you!
Enjoy your day!
It's a beautiful day here in central Florida.
No humidity.....not bragging here....I know you all up north are pretty sick of the cold and snow.  Spring is just around the corner and it will be beautiful!!!!
I'm linking with Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville.
Thanks Leigh!

Our first Flea Market Show!!!!!

Our first Flea Market Fun this weekend!!!!!

I have been making pillows.  I do the opening in the back so you can wash them and they all have feather inserts. I'm selling them at the show this weekend.
We are having our first Flea Market show at Art Angels Market during the Pine
Castle Florida Pioneer Days this Saturday.(was that too much in one sentence?)

I have been making these flowers to add to the pillows.

This is MINE! We(Kathy and I) did go to Renningers and this is all I got. Not a good day....I got in trouble for leaving Bailey home with Emily, he was sick all night.  He ate a seed pod and it really made him sick. I worried about him all day so I really couldn't think about what I was doing.

Some of the things for the Flea Market this weekend.

What a mess!  I need to get more organized if I'm going to do this again.

And look at what I got!!!
I already looked at all the pictures now I have to go back and read every word.

This is the only picture I took at Renningers.

Some of the furniture, frames and candle holders I have been working on.

Emily and Rachel went to Starbucks the other evening and this was curbside!
She is her mothers daughter after all. They do come around! 

I will be trying my first reupholster job on this.

It's in great condition. But it does smell like smoke.

I have been putting these together to sell at the show this weekend.
I love them, I hope someone else does.

Here he is. He kept rubbing his nose in the dirt to make that yucky feeling go away.
He is all better now, after $314.00 at the vet of course!
