Thanks to everyone that came out and shopped Elkhorn this past weekend. It was so good to see all of our regulars and meet blog readers Michelle, (Vintage Remix), and Marilyn for the first time. Thanks for introducing yourselves!!
After spending most of last week at camp with a couple of my grand-girls, (more on that another time), I was left with three hours to pack for the show. Yikes. Once there, I didn't get any photos of the show, opting to do some quick shopping instead!
A big stack of old gray sap buckets was a fun find. At just 8 1/2" tall, they'd be perfect for centerpieces. (I've made some available in my etsy store - here). Some will be embellished with stencils and be available elsewhere soon. I found a few other things that are headed for Waterloo tomorrow, but my favorite find of all is staying right here. I can't wait to get it all wiped down and ready for prime time!
This little old hand-made 'hoosier' is just five feet tall and has found a perfect home in my kitchen. The top lifts up and has a divider for flour & sugar. There are holes where the sifters used to be. I'm planning to cover the holes and store small vases inside. (Pardon the wonky photos - the corner windows in my kitchen make it nearly impossible to get good pics at any time of the day!)
The turquoise paint is the third layer. Blue and a reddish-brown came before.
The storage underneath will come in handy for paper products and table linens.
You all know how I feel about the color, and the honest wear is an added bonus.
So do tell, what did you find this weekend?
