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!!!

The Things I Keep . . . Monday??? And, Save The Date


Is it Tuesday - really?  We are in the middle of show season and I just can't seem to find enough hours in the day (and be at home long enough to get anything else done).  Better late than never I suppose. . 

Recognize these guys?  They are my wonderful hand-cut vintage silhouettes that I have created product after product with (including paper, rub-ons, stamps, and stencils) and I'm sure to not soon part with them.  They rest on the picture ledge in our upstairs family room, forever my muses.



Save the date - December 5th and 6th 
 
These are the dates for a special new event that we will be holding at our little farm.  This event will be replacing Vintagefest which we have done for 4 years now at the Holiday Inn in Mt. Juliet.  I am so very excited about this for so many reasons and have SO MUCH I want to share.  I will be nailing down some details this week and getting some graphics done and will have all of the details by the end of next week.  Stay tuned!

The Things I Keep Monday. . . and we have a winner!


First of all, Elaine Plemons - you have won the Country Living Fair Atlanta early bird passes!  You left your email so I will be shooting you a note soon about how to get those.  Congratulations!

And now on to this week's "keeper" . . . my 1960's Buddy L camper.  We buy and sell a lot of old trucks.  They are so useful in so many ways - as postcard holders, plant holders, or even Christmas Trees during the holidays.  The Buddy L brand is one of the best, and one of the most collectable.  I have actually never found a truck and camper attachment to sell like this.  Once I got a hold of this one it was put into my permanent collection, and not just for its color and style, but it belonged to Jared's uncle Joe.  And that's the best reason yet!


Happy Monday!  Previews for new Flea Market finds coming tomorrow.
