New Vingettes at #1

Of course we can never leave things the same for very long so when Easter was over it was time to create some new settings in the shop #1.

Nests and birds are the decorating craze, but we knew that. The decorating magazines have just reinforced the idea.
This garden dress form is just the coolest thing. We put little magnetic birds all over it. The background are these great urns we got from one of our favorite vendors....

We just got in this great garden bench that is nestled on the porch. A garden gnome is sitting under a birdbath.

Love this clouche with a bird under it. It is so Anthrogology. Which by the way is a great inspiration to me.

These little birds are a fav of ours!!!!!

More from our company in Michigan. Garden sticks with sayings....

This is a great piece. It is a herb drying rack for the wall. I put these little metal picture holders on it. It has a top and bottom shelf to decorated too...

Ah more birds!!!!!!
Happy decorating everyone.

Flea Market Day!

Last Sunday got up at the crack of dawn to hit the semi annual flea market in central Phoenix. Phoenix is not quite known for having lots of great flea markets so when one comes around us die hards have to go........

Pauline with a gal named Mac. She specializing in all Frenchy finds. As a matter of fact our great 1920's cloth manequin in the front window at #2 is from her.
Absolutely loved these bright blue wicker chairs. They are now at Cottage Garden #2 on the front porch for all to take a rest before they move on to do more shopping. Not only funky and cute but very comfy.........

There was all kinds of stuff everywhere you turned....

See those two great white urns. Yep they are at #2 right next to the blue wicker chairs. I potted red geraniums in them. Our porch looks so cool.....

There were lots and lots of people that attended. All of us flea market junkies...

Just love to dig thru all the itsy bitsy stuff that were in boxes here and there. Never know when you will find that one great treasure find.
We had such a ball and we are preparing ourselves for a bigger adventure. The Alameda Flea Market in northern California. Just wait and see what treasures we find there. Can't Wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easter Egg Hunt

Today was the Easter Egg Hunt in Catlin Court in front of all our shops. What fun all the little children had. The city hid about 20,000 eggs. Not one was left in the front yards after all the kids filled their baskets. I do think it was a big success!!!!!!

The line of kids getting ready for the hunt.......

All the volunteers came equipped with bunny ears...... They were all great sports.

Eggs everywhere!

The kids could even get the pictures taken with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny.

A wonderful and blessed Easter to everyone...........
