For over a year now,
I have been aiming for a Booth, in our small town
'Silver Fox Antique Store'
Even tho the town is small,
this place has a sound reputation
so people come from the city, to shop!
3 weeks ago, a smaller space became available.
some bigger spaces had come and gone...
but finally, I was at a place were I thought
I could be ready in 3 weeks.
Yesterday, I set up my booth.
and YES I call it
'L'ame de la vie'
(The beautiful Soul of life)
because I love taking something old...
and making it new again...
and old pieces, have such a cozy wonderful feel...
the feel of a different Era..when life seemed...well
The Vintage wreath was so fun to create.
The lil Vintage deer, was not in perfect condition,
but he won me over!
I used Vintage lace, and a 1920's scarf is tied at the bottom.
also vintage balls and ornaments.
Pine cones and Vintage Christmas cards.
just looking at it...takes me back.
My big pieces are a Gun cabinet and a girls desk set!
and I made signs...I love love the big mantel sign
'True love was Born in a Stable'
The lil desk, was roll top, without a roll top
below is the before pic
As I work on a piece..thing's sometimes change,
and I embellish more then I originally thought I would.
I made a built in chalk board, and added a lil valance.
The chair is wonderful in that it was all rounded and curved wood.
I added a Vintage chenille seat.
I know my grand daughters fell in love with this set.
I wonder at the girl, who will one day use it.
The gun Cabinet needed some work...
Silly me forgot to take a before pic...
so this is a pic, in the process off :)
And here is is after
this Gun cabinet also has lighting in it :)
As I was moving thing's in, the owner and another lady, kept saying
'Peggy, are you sure that is going to fit'
YES, if there is will there is a way!
I fell in love with the Yellow standing Vintage lamp...I painted
the stand Yellow to match the shade.
I think it will make a wonderful
colorful, accent piece in the perfect spot!
Some of the smaller goodies in my Booth.
I had allot of fun...making this lamp
I wanted all colors...so thing's
could go with all decors...
A little Yellow vintage shelf, is tucked away behind the lamp
It is not a big space, But I think
we popped the color
into this area. Don't you agree?
and it's a Start!
How is your Christmas decorating, gift making and buying going?
can I be honest? really honest?
I have not bought or made one thing,
for my huge family...nothing, nada...
I best get on all that....very soon!
thanks for stopping by!
