Maybe I should rename this post. . .

"The Things I Kept This Week" - I seem to be having some trouble keeping up with "Monday"!

So this week my share, as suggested, is also from the house we picked in Atlanta (story in last week's post).  Something to add to my rather large tobacco collection.  I'm assuming this was a device possibly used to measure tobacco??  I'm unsure- maybe you know?  Nonetheless, it had advertising and it provided storage so it had me at hello.


If you are not already, be sure to LIKE my new Facebook pages.  I have a personal page (Jenni Bowlin) where I am mostly posting my Instagram feed too and we have a page for our new house pop-up show in Mt. Juliet, TN - A Vintage Affair at Haven Farm.  We will be doing some ticket giveaways and otherwise on both Instagram and Facebook soon, so don't miss out on the fun!!

It's still Monday . . .

although barely.  This is my busiest time of year, but considering I missed last Monday, I am definitely overdue for another installment of the Things I Keep Monday!

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of purchasing some items from an estate in Atlanta, GA.  Our lovely new friend and her sister had spent many month's cleaning out their mother's home and were needing to move some items out.  It is always an honor to be asked to do this - I truly think it's a sacred thing, being brought into someones life that way.  It's amazing how you can slowly see unfolding in front of you years and years of history - learning interests, vocations, and tastes.  Their mother had been an artist and a "keeper" of the tiniest of things.  To say I was in heaven is an understatement.  And while we did purchase several items to sell, most items have found their way into my studio, including this little pile of jewels below.  In fact, I feel sure that the next several installments of this little Monday ritual will all be items that came from this house.  I am so very honored to have been invited in.

Happy Monday!

(I keep teasing big announcements, but they really are coming!  Check back this week for the details on our first home event in Mt. Juliet, TN next month).

Fall is literally at my window. . .

as I type this.  Leaves are hitting my bedroom window and the wind is howling!  Perfect weather for crafting.  Here's is what you have to look forward to tonight at midnight when the ghouls and goblins have gone to bed . . .

A new Papercrafting Kit full of Autumn's glory . . .

  
(and some great exclusives too like doily wood veneer, our classic JBS girl stamp, papers by Lisa and a perforated stencil). . .


The Artisian Kit has lots of little details and a great Hero Arts rubber stamp to use over and over. . .


This month's Antiquarian Kit  has lots of vintage labels with great fall themes and colors as well as my favorite vintage slide holder (perfect for adding a small photo between the glass) and some wonderful turkey German foil . . .


The Crafted Kit this month was designed by Betsy and it is fabulous!!  If you ever wanted to try your hand at chalk art but didn't know where to start, this kit is for you as it comes with a custom designed stencil.  I am so in love with this. . .


And finally, our Flea Market will be full to the brim with great vintage finds like this old Bingo game spinner (push the lever and the numbers turn) with a great woodgrain finish . . .


a very rare brown Kodak accordion camera. . .
 

a lovely pairing of a large antique photo of 4 men, one of whom is wearing the style glasses (antique) that are included with the photo. . .
 

my favorite vintage Pumpkin labels. . .
 

cute little vintage thread spools that include a pair of vintage scissors. . .
 

a very lovely framed photo of a young girl (we have a boy too)!. . .

some tiny antique embroidery cotton spools in "turkey red" with their original paper labels and a turkey graphic. . .

and lots more of course!  November is here!!!
