Farewell.

I think I am already in vacation mode because I totally forgot to do a blog post for today! I am busy doing last minute errands and laundry. I can’t wait until I am napping by the pool tomorrow! I might pop in here from time to time – but no promises 🙂

If not, I will see you again on October 10th with news of opening up the Twig Home studio again soon!

Fieldstone Vintage Market [Recap]

Wow, what a weekend! I am still in awe of the great weather, the successful turnout, and all of the quality vintage and handmade items at the Fieldstone Vintage Market on Saturday. It was also super fun meeting so many wonderful new people! I have to say a huge thanks to Rachel and Lily of Birch + Bird, and the lovely ladies from the Ecodairy who worked so hard to pull this off! It’s so wonderful to be given the place and opportunity to share what you love to do with others. I also need to send a massive thank you to my wonderful husband Dustin (who worked the entire day with me), and my mom and dad who helped unload and pack up – as well as a couple of friends who did some major heavy lifting for us.

And for those of you who couldn’t make it out, here are a few photos I managed to take before the crowds descended. I am just sorry I wasn’t able to take pictures of any of the other booths. To see more photos, go here!

As much fun as the market was, I am definitely in need of a holiday. And lucky me, I am leaving on Thursday evening for 9 glorious  days basking in the sun in Phoenix! I couldn’t be more excited. The trip was planned as a sort of last hurrah before we have a little one to take care of and I plan on sleeping in as much as possible. But before I take off, I have a busy week ahead of me restocking Tracycakes and Cozy Home! So whether you missed out this weekend, or if you just didn’t get enough, be sure to stop by later this week and have a look at some more vintage treasures!

Crazy Days.

I have a tonne of things to do today – and the next 11 days until the Fieldstone Vintage Market! I feel a bit like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off! I am finding my slower pregnancy pace increasingly annoying… Oh well, shortly after the market, my husband and I (along with my parents) are going on a much needed holiday to Phoenix, Arizona! It couldn’t come soon enough! I thought I’d leave you with a picture of this little guy I just finished – I think he turned out quite well! If you’re interested, you know where to find him!

Twig Home at Tracycakes Update.

Yesterday I brought some new great stuff to Tracycakes in Abbotsford. You should go check it out… All prices include tax and can be purchased via debit, credit or cash. Here’s what it looked like before.

Have a Seat…

Speaking of chairs… Have I got a few for you! I have always loved the look of a table full of mismatched vintage chairs… I also like the idea of using a single chair for something other than sitting – yes, you heard me – maybe as a bedside table, or in the bathroom as towel storage… the possibilities really are endless! So next time you fall in love with a single vintage chair, don’t write it off because it doesn’t have a ‘set’, it will only add interest to your home.

Twig Home just so happens to have a few vintage chairs waiting for homes. Have a look… and if you’re interested in any of these, please let me know!

I’ve got four of these beauties. They are all very solid, and have the prettiest turquoise blue striped seats. $45 ea. or 4 for $160.

A perfectly weathered little beach chair. $35.

These babies are just dying to go around a cute vintage table. $29 each.

Two beautiful, solid, antique press back chairs. $45 each or two for $80. The antique brass chandelier is also for sale, $325.

Vintage industrial metal stool, $45.

Child size chairs! Vintage school chair, $25. Wooden rocker, $30. I also have lots of vintage wool plaid blankets for keeping cozy this fall, most $25 each.

More children’s chairs… White crackly chair, $29. Brown chair with burlap seat, $35.
