It's a Dilly of a Sign!

I found this sign at the last JUNKMARKET Style Event, Flea Market Under Glass. Because there is no pre-selling allowed (we have to save the best for the customers), I had to book it over to the Junk Devotions/Queens of Chic's booth shortly after the doors opened. Sorry, Richard. I guess I just move faster than you :-) The only problem with the sign it? It was too long for the wall it was intended for. Oops....but sometimes decorating accidents work out for the better!

Don't you love this sign!  It was "almost" perfect for my wall. The only problem?  It was a bit too long.

The wall it was intended for really needed some "oomph" to it.

My solution for it? Allow the sign to hang over one edge, and then add something fun to the end of it.

This "vintage" rope would be usefully in hanging the piece.

And this cool old wheel?  It'll be a fun addition!

It doesn't hang over too much, just enough!

A cute vintage green industrial table with a black and white scale complete the vignette. Though this wall was a work in the making, I like how it all came together!

Finally! Pictures of Flea Market Under Glass!

I'm always a day late and a dollar short, but here is finally some pictures of the Flea Market Under Glass event done in collaboration with JUNKMARKET Style and Otten Bros.  It was an amazing event, and we are so thrilled at the turnout.  Thank you to all who came out.  I was so fortunate to be able to meet some of my followers.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  You really don't know how tickled I was.  It was a great honor.  I love what I do and it's because of all of you.  You really do not even know how much I appreciate it.  Again, thank you! 

So without further ado, here are some F.M.U.G. pictures.  I wish I was able to take better pictures.  The good thing, I was too busy to do it!  Enjoy and stay tuned for more info on the fall event!

From Broom Holder to Flower Display!

What do you get when you combine a vintage broom holder, some chippy wood and some fun vintage bottles? A very cool piece of wall art!

In its former life it was not too appealing.....

But I could see it was a diamond in the rough.
The chippiness of the wood gave it the perfect patina.  

This small stash of vintage bottles will make great vases.

And I can use these claws to hold them.

"Esquire Lanol White" was for shoe polish. A pretty fancy shoe polish bottle if I do say so myself.

Now all I need is the flowers....

And there you have it. All finished! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

A Rusty Wall Pocket that's a Total Gas!

Well actually in it's former life I was told it was some type of gas can cover. But with it's perfect patina and pre-made holes, a wall pocket was a perfect reuse! And my chalkboard wall off the kitchen was in need of some additional accessories.....

Some of my supplies, the gas can cover, beads, wire, and a glass that will serve as a vase insert. My cat Jazzy was so curious as to what I was up to, she wouldn't get out of the picture. That Darn Cat! Wait....isn't that a movie? Ha!

With the wire and beads, I created a flower that will serve as an embellishment.  


Have you ever tried these Hercules Hooks? Love!! They'll be perfect to hold this rather heavy piece.

The pre-made holes on this piece will be perfect to hang it.

Just an old Ikea glass was used as a vase insert.

Love the colors of these flowers....a present from my hubby on this snowy winter day.

And there ya be. From gas can cover to wall pocket.

My chalkboard wall is starting to take shape with some added accessories.

This old metal whatchamacallit will work great for an additional message holder.  Ooops.....I guess that event is over.  On to the next one!

I had to share this fun vintage card I recently purchased. They had almost every town in MN. After a little digging (okay maybe a lot), I was able to find a neighboring town.
