feeling random...

You can always tell when Flea Market season is blog posts become less and less frequent...and my days revolve around a paint brush and a warehouse busting with furniture waiting for a makeover. Since I have not posted this week, I thought I would just do a little 'follow up' to a couple recent posts and let you know what has been going on here at Casa Farmgirl. 

Let's see..

Speaking of furniture...I have been painting a LOT lately, so in just a couple weeks I will be back at the Kane County Flea in St. Charles, IL with a whole lotta this...there will be my usual white with a little black, gray, aqua and a few other colors sprinkled in. 

I had such a huge email response to my post about my trip our to my Mom & Dad's for Easter. To answer everyone at once...the photos of the barns and the cows are mostly from farms along Hwy 20 between Stockton and Galena, IL. A couple are from a road I don't know the name of that branches off of Hwy 20 outside of Galena going towards Platteville, WI. If you drive that route, you should be able to get some of the very same pics, but wear tall boots! You have to walk through some very deep ditches and over a barbed-wire fence. The things I do to get shots for you girls! Haha!

I have yet to decide on a color roof for my exterior reno. I am seriously leaning towards the charcoal gray roof with a light gray paint color on the body of the house and charcoal shutters. But I am sure I will change my mind by tomorrow morning.

My new Willow Sofa from Crate & Barrel that I discussed here has had delivery pushed back to 'early or mid May'. Grrrr....could they be a little less specific? I get so annoyed when a product that is always promised as 'in-stock' suddenly takes a month to arrive. I guess I am just excited to get my sunroom pulled together. 

I know I still owe you a post on the flooring I chose for my sunroom. Right after we installed it, we had a week of cloudy days and by the time the sun decided to come out so I could get good pics, I was in the throws of furniture painting. 

{sigh}...I need a personal assistant. 

I am been out 'pickin' like crazy because I am super excited to be a vendor at the Nada Barn Sale this year! I am collaborating with a few of the most wonderful girls I have ever met! Susan from Maple & Magnolia, Julie, Anne and Nancy from Tattered Tiques (they have an incredible shop in Lake Barrington, IL where I sell my vintage wares) and Stacey from A Sort of Fairytale.

It is going to be AWESOME! Be sure to come out and say Hi!

(and for those of you that have emailed, I will not be selling painted furniture here, but my very favorite vintage finds...look for a little preview here and on my Facebook page prior to the sale in May)

This found me yesterday on Pinterest. Something I so need to remember these day...isn't the photograph amazing??? This is from the equally amazing Jeanne Griffin her and her incredible style. 

Well, that is as good as it gets for today, girls! I am off to the mighty warehouse to paint today. The countdown is on...the flea is 2 weeks from Saturday...YIKES!

Have a happy Wednesday!
