kane county flea this weekend!

It is going to be an BEAUTIFUL fall weekend here in Illinois! A little nip in the air...I can't wait for the flea - are you coming out to shop? I missed last month...the first time in 6 years...but my Dad was so ill, I just had to be with him. I had a friend run the booth for me, but I missed seeing and talking to everyone!

For those of you that have shopped my space I want you I will be there, but the selection will be small this month. So much went on last month, and I have been out of town basically the whole month helping my mom adjust to her new life, I just didn't have time to get as much done as usual. 

I will have a few chalkboards...

And a cabinet that would be PERFECT for under a flat screen...or as a buffet...or a changing table...

A couple of pieces with some cute details...

And a china cabinet that is so much better in person...pale gray beadboard & chippy white chicken wire...

Of course I will have a ton of frames...

all shapes, sizes and colors!

Hope to see you there!

Oh, and just for fun if you hop over to Susan's blog today, Maple & Magnolia, you can see a piece of my painted furniture in action. I love it when I see how they fit in at their new homes! 

Happy Thursday girls, I am off to load a truck!

Hope to see you this weekend!


  1. yeah! see you then!!

    btw Mary....I am looking for a tall dresser, but not painted.....let me know if you have something

  2. i may be able to make it!

    smiles to you.


  3. i wish I was in Illinois!! Those dressers are beautiful, especially that first one!!

  4. Can you text me the dimensions on the cabinet/buffet(pic under the chalkboards) 630-220-8749? I might take that instead of the other cabinet we have been discussing. I could have my dad or brother pick it up from the flea on Sat. Let me know!! Thanks!!! Rachel Lawrence
