Country Living Fair Atlanta

This weekend is the big Country Living Fair in Atlanta. It is by far the best show I have ever gone too. I helped a dear friend in her booth last year and it was crazy busy. It was so much fun. I did not get to shop much though, which was probably a good thing. This year my family is coming to town to visit the fair so I will be shopping instead of working and I can not wait!! Here are some pictures of Revival 356's photo boards and crosses. These are truly a one of kind item. Each board, cross, etc. is made from salvaged vintage wood then layered with vintage fabric and lace and finally rusty wire, hinges, door knobs and crystals are added. Each board is truly a unique work of art. My friend Vikki is the creative genius behind each of these boards.
Aren't they gorgeous, if you go to the fair be sure to look for her it will be a beehive of activity as people fight for their favorite boards. Hope to see you at the fair!

Salvaged Suitcases into pet beds

I think this idea is adorable. Old suitcases have such personality and remind me of my childhood. Isn't this a great way to use those old (heavy) suitcases, and get everyday use out of them.
I am sure good looking old suitcases are now a hot commodity at flea markets and antique stores! Do you think I can find one big enough for my wild golden retriever?!

Salvaged armoire ideas

What a fabulous idea. So often people want to get rid of these older cabinets because everyone is putting their TVs on the wall. Here is a great idea to upcycle it into a huge doll house. Here is another beautiful one converted into a bar. I see these all of the time at thrift stores. They are pretty cheap to pick up. Go ahead and get one and upcycle it to something wonderful.

New bracelets

I am in the jewelry making mode right now. I have two shows in November and an open house. Here are some of the bracelets I have been making. These are a real popular look stacked up your arm.
Sorry the lighting is so bad with these I was having a bit of technical trouble that day.

No time to post really so.....

I am running crazy right now, but though I could at least post this PSA for pet adoption. Doesn't it just warm your heart?!

Chalk Labels here

I have started to sell these chalk labels in my booth and now my etsy store. I love them they are the handiest items ever. I have started to get rid of all of the plastic in my house and started to store everything in glass.
I love the look and my pantry and refrigerator is starting to look super organized. The labels are even big enough to write expiration dates or directions if I want. The best thing is the jars are what would have gone into the trash or recycling. These are also great to add to mason jars at a party to label your drink. Since the labels are repositionable they can be removed to wash the glass then put right back on or stored on wax paper. They can be put on to the kids mirrors to remind them to brush their teeth....wash their hands...flush.... you understand what I am where I am coming from right? I like to use a chalk marker instead of regular chalk to get that crisp color. It wipes clean easily when you are ready, but doesn't smear like chalk can sometimes do.
They come in different shapes, sizes and quantities. You can see more in my etsy shop!
