this and that around the shop...

So much fun has been happening around here! The shop is AMAZING, life is good and there are new adventures around every corner! Although I have not had too much time to blog, I have been thinking about all of you, trying to keep up on what is going on mostly through Facebook and Instagram.

They have taken the place of blogging these last few months since the shop has opened...I love how quickly I can post photos from around the shop, or keep in touch while I am out hunting for cool old stuff. 

 I feel like I don't have much going on these days other than what happens at the shop, and hate to bore you over and over with more of the same..but...it's what I've got going on lately, so here we go. My girl, Susan {from Maple & Magnolia} was kind enough to snap some photos between customers the last time we were open so I actually have something to show you! Things were already a little picked over, but you get the idea of what we've got goin' on!

Since we are only open only 2 weekends a month, we have this crazy need to change it up each time it is open...we tear it all down, bring in new things and style it completely different each time. Crazy - but SO MUCH FUN!

The displays are all about color these days...must be because we are so over this gray Midwest winter weather...so we are rollin' spring in, ready or not!

All these photos were from the last weekend we were open...but you should see this weekend's display!  Spring-like - but a little rustic {which is my FAV!}, mixed with new painted furniture pieces and finds from my latest picking adventure through Indiana!

{I will try to show some preview photos on Facebook tomorrow night!}

The shop is open this Thursday 10-6, Friday & Saturday 10-4. 

I hope this little cutie stops in again this week. This is sweet Miss Georgia Claire. She came marching in with her cape on...spotted my vintage tiara's and we KNEW it was the perfect photo op with one of our new chalkboard style prints...

I could not have planned this better if I TRIED!! 

Some things are just meant to be!

Isn't she just adorable??

Ok, I am off to bed. It has been a busy week!

Hope to see some of you Thursday at the shop!

  3. Please post often about the shop! Even if it's just a pic or two! We love seeing them! And these old eyes love the "big screen". (Love instagram too....and I do a lot of squinting!)

  4. Two other times I have thought I would stop by your shop while passing through Rockford. Both times my plans were changed for me and it didn't happen. I'm hoping the third time is the charm and I make it there tomorrow. I may be able to deliver another cape-clad toddler too. My little guy wears his most days and he will be along for the ride. Can't wait to see it in person!

  5. Everything looks beautiful!What a sweet photo of that little girl! Oh I miss those years when my daughter was small.She was just like that!

  16. That chalkboard sign is soooo stinkin' cute! Your shop overall is adorable! Nice work!

  17. Oh why can't I teleport myself:-( Your shop looks so amazing!

  18. After reading your post about Rockford and seeing your shop, I want to visit.

    I live in Ventura, CA, the poorer sister of Santa Barbara , CA. I love to walk State Street in Santa Barbara, eat in their great restaurants, enjoy their wonderful zoo, and so much more. But, I would not want to live there. The poorer sister is sweeter, friendlier and more affordable than SB. We live on the beach in Ventura, but the beach houses in SB are 3 million +.

    Enjoy your sweet hometown.

  19. i wish i could come!!! :)
    i also wish i could come to the kane county flea market!!
    your shop is AWESOME!
