Hello all! Today was one of those great rainy days! I was excited to be back at the shoppe after a little break from it last weekend to restock and *roadtrip* We picked up some great furniture over the past week and if you follow along on Facebook you have probably seen some of the finished pieces already.
We created quite a few lamps and shades for the barn show and we have some more waiting in the wings. I love lighting! I love interesting lamps and I really love making shades as well.
This pretty buffet is the first thing that sold today... it will be in a nursery! I always love to know that my furniture pieces will be in a baby's room!
I have a thing for bachelor's chests and I always have to pick them up when I see them. I painted the hidden drawers the contrasting color on the insets and knobs. I love the spindle-y legs of this one too.
As always, it isn't all work at the shoppe. Today, the Mr picked up the guitar and then baby hughes picked up some clothespins and turned them into drumsticks for a little jam session. I think the lunch pail drums drowned out the acoustic... imagine that *wink* We also managed to fit in some games of *Go Fish* It is relatively new around here and quite entertaining to play... I love games!
Tomorrow, our neighbors, the Spring Hill Antique Mall, are hosting an autumn vintage market with handmade, vintage, food, and music from 9-6, so I am looking forward to sneaking over there at some point. If you are in the area, you should stop by... the Spring one had a great turnout even though it was f r e e z i n g for April.
I am still adding to the shoppe over the next week... we have finished some other handmade items and repurposed *stuff* that we just need to put the finishing touches on.
Have a lovely *Fall* weekend! Go crunch some leaves! We are enjoying it!
bye for now~
