Spring Displays at the Shop

Spring Displays at the Shop

Is it just me, or does spring feel really late in coming this year?  I can remember this time last year, sipping coffee on my back porch in the morning and almost feeling hot; this year we haven’t even unpacked the porch furniture from storage yet! ...

Spring Booth at Lyla’s

Hello Spring! Truly, this is my favorite time of the year! I know many of you may still be swimming in snow (those bad storms in the Northeast this week!), but spring is in full force down here in Texas. Unfortunately, I’ve been spending much of my time behind...
Fresh Farmhouse Style Finds

Fresh Farmhouse Style Finds

I just started watching the first season of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. I realize I am waaaay behind on this trend . . . But let me explain. We don’t have cable at our house, only internet streaming.  So if show isn’t available on Netflix or Amazon, then I...
Antique Pine Furniture

Antique Pine Furniture

I have developed a new love affair with antique pine furniture.  Those knotty, rustic pieces have been added to my decor favorites list, alongside old books and flow blue china. I’m not talking about the western-style, orangey-yellow pine furniture you see in...
Vintage Market Days Recap

Vintage Market Days Recap

Hi everyone!  I had to take a few days “off” after having my first set-up show this past weekend at the Dallas-McKinney Vintage Market Days.  I was working from dawn till dusk Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and my brain and body just needed a few days of...

To Market, To Market

Hello everybody!  Wondering where I’ve been? Well, at the end of last week my laptop died, and I just got it back from the repair shop today.  Yes, I know there are other working computers out there to use, but you’re looking at a creature of habit here!...
Restocking the Booth

Restocking the Booth

Sales have been a little slow lately in my Antique Company Mall booth space. They usually take a dip around November and start to slowly rise back up by mid-March.  This year though, my sales seem to be taking longer than normal to recover, and that has had me asking...
A Big Learning Curve

A Big Learning Curve

Life around here the past few weeks has been somewhat out of the ordinary.  With the addition of my new job as a Fusion Mineral Paint Merchant, stuff like crazy is coming in and out of my house–which means figuring out new ways to store it, keep track of it, and...

Hello! I told you all in my last post about my “heavenly trip” to the Canton First Monday Flea Market recently, so now it’s time to show you a little more of what I found there.     Just about all of the market treasures have made their way...

Holiday Weekend & Memorial Day Decorations

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Are you ready for the unofficial start of summer? I spent a little time yesterday afternoon getting my ACM booth ready by putting together few Memorial Day Decorations.  All of that red, white, and blue I’ve been hoarding in my...
Sweet Garden Vignette

Sweet Garden Vignette

I am certainly not an avid gardener, but when this time of year comes around I always am motivated to try my hand and planting some beautiful things in my yard.  Last year, I bought myself two hydrangeas as a Mother’s Day gift to myself.  I thought I had the...
Antique Alley Haul

Antique Alley Haul

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that my husband and I spent this past Friday and Saturday scouting out Antique Alley Texas.  It was part work trip, part anniversary trip (10 years!), and we really had a blast.  We stayed in a lovely bed and breakfast...
