and about 2 feet of green leaves all over the excursion and the ground. the last of the green!
we weren't planning on going so we left later... actually i was trying to plan on going by myself! ha! but it's hard to leave my family behind ;)
and this is what HANGRY looks like!
we got lucky and got to catch the tail end of georgia's last volleyball game! we miss you georgia!
and then 3 DOTTERS! what i was trying to sneak away too. it's always fun to see jen and her eclectic show ♥ #3dottersvintagemarket and how cute is this soda truck! follow them over at The Soda Truck, they just started their business. apple beer, yes! #thesodatruckut
the first busiest day of the whole year in our small town, heritage day. got the first sneak peek of the art squared paintings last night...loved this painting of this old country path, now i wish i would have bid on it!
because you know i love a good ol raggedy ann doll and vintage cowboy boots ♥
got up early this morning...only a few hours of sleep, finished pricing more items for my sale over at the old school, and then lunch prep at our church. my mom and dad, and chelsey came down late last night for this weekend, glad they are here!
the kids and my mom and chelsey got to ride in this cool classic car! never get in a stranger's car when they offer you a ride, unless it's a bel air, ha ha! (and you're with your aunt and grandma)
my favorite artist...randall lake! love that his place just down the street. they added these awesome shutters inside ♥
hhello lovely vintage quilts ♥
i love our small town...so many charming stone homes and buildings. we got a sneak peek of the third floor of the old school...they have done so much work, it looks so good!
and my favorite barn...some day, we will have one too! going to give up some garden space for it, levi put it in the plans last year, can't wait!
and the biggest miracle of all! we didn't get rain at all, even though it was forecasted, all the surrounding areas got poured on...while our little town was protected with good weather and sunshine until the evening.
yes...simply lovely, right? so perfectly aged, and i love the bright seafoam green paint...and scallops! we have so many charming old houses all around. i love old homes, definitely one of a kind, and i love to see their personal style reflect on the outside too.
today we went to a few yard sales around town, and then to ephraim to a swap meet that snow college was putting on. picked up a few vintage books, and old rusty metal box and ice cream for the kids!
small town saturday outings ♥ #thesimplelife #countrylife
guess what! gas is super cheap right now...hallelujah! we took off to utah county at 2pm, which is unheard of. sold some bronco parts, stopped at 3 Dotters Vintage Market just in time before they closed at 4. jenn's booth is always the first one i look at! grabbed a roxberry and caught the waffle love truck on a missed turn! #wafflelove #bestwafflesever
we were actually planning on eating at the store in provo, some how i over read their post on being right in lehi, so it was perfect! now i know that roxberry and waffle love is way too much at one time, pick one or the other...but still so good!
on a whim...i ran outside to sand and paint this table! this last week i've been trying to get my studio back in order...and part of my solution is needing this little table right next to my main work table, so that i can pile on my tools and such on this, and keep my table clear and functioning, yay! and since this wasn't planned...i had 90 minutes before the sun went down...good thing i barely made it. i had to stain outside in the dark with a hallogen light. levi said i couldn't stain in his garage. mainly because i'm messy, and he's a neat freak in his garage.
super excited and can't wait to organize my stuff on it!
i get so busy that i forget to share and post my projects. i tend to just move on to the next one to get things done! we got this done back in march. so glad it's up and functional. i love old doors. and i can now say that i have one (or two or three) in every room now!
we added funky knobs and some in polka dots (of course) to the old door, i love to mix and match different styles. i didn't paint this one, just left as is. i did sand the paint that was flaking off, and added some stain.
i sewed some ribbon to each towel so that they can hang from the knobs. make sure to measure first before cutting ribbon, so that it will fit over the knob. i actually did that!
saturday morning claudia and i drove to payson for fleaology! i've been wanting to go for a year now! every single time they had their market i didn't have money or couldn't go. groceries before antiques i guess ;)
well i wasn't gonna pass up another one...so we made it happen!
i love looking at antiques! and i always suffer from flea market A.D.D.
you know where there is so much stuff to look at, up down, all around...and you are instantly overwhelmed with creativity and ideas and you start hyperventilating and can't focus on any one thing!? right? v i n t a g e m a d n e s s ! that's me in every scrapbook, fabric and antique store!
i loved this vintage owl lamp! and this vintage apron, the coral and lime green...so cute!
this guy was so cool...making jewelry out of old silverware right on the spot!
this is the chair that i painted last summer...maybe in july/august? i can't remember now. right before we moved from idaho, i had to make one last stop at the d.i. and i found a few things. one was this chair for one dollar. i was originally going to put it in the girls room...that was before i painted it.
this is my aqua window. i'm going to put our address on it in vinyl and the star and hang it outside today...can't wait. i painted the window just before halloween. i actually ordered the vinyl then too, and the lady got the measurements wrong, so she had to redo it, but forgot i guess...she just dropped it off to me yesterday! any way, can't wait to have another project completed! the window and star have been sitting in my living room since then...glad it didn't get broken!
