"Vintage Barn" and Lampshades...
Yesterday was the best day ever!!
A good friend of mine and I left our kids with our husbands, and drove 2.5 hours to Rathdrum, ID to go to the Vintage Barn Antique show. It was such a blast!! They had over 50 vendors, live country music, and tasty food. But most importantly, the most lovely antiques and hand made items! I learned a few lessons while I was there though:
- Just because it's September, doesn't mean you should wear black pants and a sweater. It was so hot, and everyone else wore cute skirts and cowboy boots. Oops :o)
- Don't forget your sunglasses! And most of all.....
- Don't forget your camera!!
But I bought an old sign that says "antiques" that I'm very excited about, and a little white bird for a bird mobile I'm working on.
Anyway, I've been working on my living room a little, and I thought I would share a few photos of what I've got going so far...
I made this wreath to hang on my mirror in the corner of the living room. It reminds me of something I saw in a Pottery Barn catalog once.This is the pillow (the brown one) that I made after the mushroom pillow of death. I really like it, it looks like tweed, but it feels like flannel.
And I was experimenting with bird cut-outs on this lampshade (it's a really fun thing to do)!
I still might use cut-outs on a lampshade in another room. You can't really see the cut-outs when the lamp is off, so I thought it would be cute to surprise my husband with an "I love you" cut-out when he turns on the lamp on our night stand!
Well I'm off to rest and relax with my family! Happy Sunday to you all!
