come see me this weekend!

I have been a little 'absent' from blogging the last couple of weeks.

I had to make up for lost time when I was on vacation this month, so its been a week of 16 hour work days, waaaay too many dinners where I had a sandwich in one hand and a paint brush in the other.....and I have loved each and every minute of it!

The last cabient has been painted...the trucks are loaded...and once again, I have all my neighbors peeking out their windows, wondering if I am moving. You would think after all these years the would remember! Two huge trucks in the driveway the first weekend of every month could only mean one thing...

That I will be here all weekend...

Meeting a lot of fabulous people and selling lots and lots of things like this...

If you are at the show this weekend, stop by and say Hi!

And keep your fingers crossed for me the weather changes...right now they are calling for thunderstorms. Yikes! 

And I apologize...I know I promised a few of you a photo preview of my items for the show this weekend, but there just was not enough time in my day! If you are looking for a particular piece, drop me a line tonight and I can let you know if I have what you are looking for!

See you at the flea!

Oh, and be sure to check in on Monday...a fabulous giveaway is coming your way!


  1. Oh how I miss those Illinois flea markets. I have a vanity dresser just like the white one you showed. I painted it a robin egg blue. It's beautiful. Have a great weekend.

  2. It's all beautiful!! I wish I was closer so I could come but I'm in Tennessee. :-( I LOVED seeing that dining room set since I have the exact same one and have always wondered what it would look like painted. I love it!

  3. Oh I so want that buffet! Have a great time and hopefully the weather will hold off.

  4. OH.. drool.. Great work... love them, especially the white low buffet, beautiful.

  5. Absolutely beautiful! Wish I lived closer!

  6. Oh my!!! Your items are TDF!!! Have a great weekend selling and selling and selling!!
    Good luck!!

  7. Wow, you really go big! Wish I could attend, I may just get to one this summer as I am visiting my cousin there.

    The nacklace arrived-thank you. My daughter loves anything that isn't from a mall.

  8. Goodness Gracious! I wish I didn't live so far away! Have fun and wishing you sunshine!

  9. Hi Mary,
    I can't tell you how much I am so bummed not to be able to go this weekend.. pout.. huge pout. Cash is tight lately for us. I love going to Kane *so* much! Your pieces look wonderful.. I especially like that dresser (5th photo down). We are supposed to have rain off & on all weekend.. but I can't imagine Kane not getting business. I hope you make out good!! Sell out vibes & dust to ya! :)))
    P.S. I'll try to come visit you again in July.. I'm not missing Kane 2 months in a row!!

  10. Lovely blog and you have wonderful pieces- wish I could go.

  11. Oooh, the buffet in #3 is exactly what I have been looking for to put in our newly remodeled bathroom! Sigh...too bad I live in Montana!
    Have a fabulous time!

  12. I love the mirror and the color, looks like you have an amazing talent. The black piece is up my alley as well. I hope you have a knock out show and the weather holds.

  13. Love your furniture pieces. We have relatives in St. Charles so next time we go I am out to hunt through the market! Good luck this weekend

  14. It has been many years since I have been to Kane, or even GraysLake! You sure are tempting me.
    You need the trucks once a month?
    They must love when you call. And be really good friends with some strong, willing workers.

  15. amazingly gorgeous furniture.
    i want it all.
    and it makes me want to paint every single thing i have!

  16. how beautiful, beautiful everything you do is...sometime I will be there again to meet you and bring a lovely piece home...

  17. Wow! Wish I could have been there...pretty, pretty, pretty...I can't believe what you do with white paint! Love it all!

  18. Just fantastic items. Wish I could be there but I fear WA is a bit of a drive for me! I just know you will do very well! Fingers crossed on the weather!

  19. WOW! Those pieces are just beautiful! Sometimes... most of the time after starting blogging.. I wish I lived in the US.. sigh... we just dont have flea markets like that here in AUs.... Love to drool
