its that time again...





You always can tell when it is "flea market time" around here. You don't hear a peep from me because I am working like crazy getting things painted for the show.





I have a long list of pieces to paint for today, so just thought I would check in and say "Hi"...and leave you with a few pics I have saved in my "furniture inspiration file" on Pinterest.





If you are coming to the flea in St Charles, IL this weekend...the weather is going to be gorgeous! I will have my regular pieces...bookcases, dressers, vanity tables, and a matching pair of gorgeous french twin beds, too!




Oh, and for those of you that have asked...I'm bringing a couple of large cabinets with chicken wire doors and a HUGE armoire that is all girly and pretty!




I found this quote on the web this morning. I think someone is trying to tell me something.

*smile...*


I am off to get some work done girls!

Happy Monday!

  35. I try to get to the Kane County Flea Market every month and I always save your booth for last. I LOVE everything. Just...everything. Keep up the good work! And as soon as I have a place of my own (my husband & I rent a small apartment in Chicago), I will be buying one of your pieces. It's already been pre-approved by the hubby!
