Peek in the Window at Visions of Paris

Neeeew, neeeew, neeew, not just yet! Window shopping is all that's allowed for now at the store front where several talented vendors will soon be gathering to hock their Frenchy wares.

Northland Vintage Market's Chapter Two event, Visions of Paris, will be held at the beautiful Zona Rosa in Kansas City September 10, 11 and 12. (Window display photos courtesy of Northland Vintage Market and The Pink Chandelier ~ Merci!) I'll share photos of a few of my own displays in a future post. If you live in the Kansas City area, I hope you'll make plans to attend this fabulous event.

Handbag Harvest

This adorable vintage purse came with one broken handle and one handle missing. Sad huh? Not really, because . . . with a little help from some pearls and crystal beads, it will soon get a makeover that will make it as good as new ~ maybe even better. I'm busy preparing for Visions of Paris, and will have photos of that to show you soon, but as soon as I can set aside a few spare minutes, I can't wait to give the veggie handbag its new handle and add it to my store. I'll share the "after" shots with you then. Hope you're enjoying a bountiful summer harvest.

Blooms & Views, #5 ~ Hello Baby Boos

Hello, you adorable Baby Boo pumpkins, how sweet of you to make your arrival. Signaling the nearness of autumn, this is the way my little white pumpkins looked a couple of weeks ago.

And this is how they look now.

They're in various stages, but at least 25 of them are ready to pluck off the vine and be pleasingly arranged into a white on white on silver autumn display. And it's only August! I think last year they weren't ready till the end of August, but they stayed gracefully in service as long as they were needed, through Thanksgiving.

Best Catch

Here are just a few of my "best catch finds" on the trip home from our recent fly-fishing excursion. All the items in this pic will be for sale at the next Northland Vintage Market in September (if I can stand to part with them all).

I am on the hunt! In keeping with the "Visions of Paris" theme for the upcoming NVM event, the rest of my month will be spent scavenging around for all things vintage French and French-inspired. Stay tuned...more to come about NVM in a future post. And I'll have news about an October event (oooo, love the fall!) at a different venue that will be a total blast. Can you believe fall is just around the corner?

Spread The Love

Sweet Tamerie at A Little of This That and The Other gave me this award. I almost decided that I couldn't decide who (not) to give it to and therefore wouldn't pass it on. But, I couldn't not "spread the love" could I? So here goes. A few friends who I suspect prefer not to participate in the award stuff were not included in my list, and please know that if you prefer not to, it won't hurt my feelings at all. I pass this award on to:

Suzy's Vintage Attic
A Thrify Mrs.
The Beautiful Life Blog
The Summer Kitchen Journal
Bonjour Madame

No rules were given with this award, so send it on however you like.©
