Scout Market Recap.

Whew! What a crazy couple of weeks! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted… once again. I do have good reason though… first, I was super busy getting ready for the Scout Market, and then I was super busy recovering from it :)… and then, last weekend we went on our very first road trip as a family of three to Spokane, Washington for Farm Chicks! Far too much has happened for just one post, so let’s just talk about Scout!

The market was so much work, but such a success. I absolutely loved getting to meet some of you, as well as shopping at the other talented vendors booths. Rachel and Lily always do such an amazing job organizing and hosting these markets. I love that they provide for us, as small business owners, a platform to really do what we love to do. So, thank you! And thank you to all the other amazing vendors! There was such a unique mix of products and styles – something for everyone!

If you weren’t able to make it out, or if you just didn’t spend as much time shopping as you would have liked due to the large crowds, check out Cozy Home for some more vintage items from Twig Home. Also, I forgot to mention this little interview I did with Delish Magazine right here if you’re interested!

While I didn’t have much time to shop myself, I did manage to snag this adorable vintage chair from Colleen of Vintage Home. It is for Wren’s (future) room… as it won’t quite fit in her mini closet abode right now :). She’s looking a little worried here, but I think she will love it in time! Thanks Colleen!

All these lovely photos (except the last one) are by the talented Jayme Lang, who was kind enough to snap some of my booth for me. If you’d like to see more photos from the market, go here to see literally hundreds (!) of great photos taken by Sharalee Prang.

Red Brick Barn.

Whew! This week just flew by! I feel like I say that every Friday… but it’s true. Especially lately, as I have been a busy bee getting ready for the Scout Market coming up. Only a week away! Yikes! I hope you all can make it out. There are some great vendors (as usual). It’s going to be a great day of vintage and handmade shopping – not to mention supporting local businesses!

I thought I would leave you with an adorable red brick barn. And it’s available to rent! Too bad it’s all the way in Australia, otherwise I would be there in a heartbeat. I love the fresh, simple European feel to it.

Well, I hope you all have a great long weekend! I am not sure if the sun is going to hold out but it will be nice to get some relaxing in anyway. We have another couple of showings this weekend… I think we are getting close to selling this place! Cross your fingers for us! See you next week!

Pop of Colour.

Ever since seeing the above kitchen with the brightly painted pocket door, I have been a little obsessed with neutral or white interiors with a pop of colour. How fun and unexpected! I think it shows personality and that you don’t take decorating too seriously. After all, your home should make you happy, right?

I hope you are having a great week so far. I can’t believe it is almost the weekend again! I spent some time this week working on my booth for the Scout Market coming up (less than a month away!). I always feel a little better after I map out what my space will look like. I usually tape out the dimensions on the floor and then do a mock set up. It is a great way to visually see what I have and what things I still need to be on the look out for. It is also encouraging when a natural theme emerges. I am excited about how it is shaping up! Hope you have a great day!

Happy Friday!

I thought I would just pop in to say, Happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I am planning on some thrifting… to hopefully build up some stock for the upcoming Scout Market! Oh, have I not mentioned that Twig Home will be a vendor?? Hmm, must have slipped my mind… Just kidding. The reason I am only now posting about it is because I kept waffling in my decision – Rachel and Lily can attest to this! They have been very patient with me. The truth is I just wasn’t sure if I would be able to put my all into it with a new baby and all. But now that I finally decided to go for it, I am really excited! So, mark your calendars and I hope to see you all there!

Market Day.

I thought I would share just a few photos from my booth at the Fieldstone Vintage Market this past weekend. The talented Jayme Lang was kind enough to snap these and to allow me to share them with you. I am especially thankful since I forgot my camera at home – (big surprise!). I had so much fun crafting ornaments, wreaths and all sorts of things for the market; I even got my amazing sister-in-law (who lives in Kentucky!) to make and send me some beautiful wares! I am so grateful to her for helping me out, as I was beginning to think I had bitten off a bit more than I could chew.

While I thoroughly enjoyed this market, I can’t help but be a little glad it is over – my house is starting to look less like a crafting explosion and more like a home! I will also hopefully now have more time to focus on preparing for the little one who will be joining us very soon. And by preparing, I mean resting, making some meals ahead of time, resting, finishing the ‘nursery’, and more resting. All good things.

Well, that’s it for the beautiful photos of my booth… but I couldn’t help throwing in a few of my iPhone photos as well, so here they are. If you are upset because you couldn’t make it out to the market (or if you just didn’t get enough), I have restocked Cozy Home with many of the things you see in these pictures. If you’re looking for unique handmade or vintage ornaments, decor, or cards, please feel free to continue your Christmas shopping over there!
