I was so inspired at the Clayburn Village Old Schoolhouse Market over the weekend.
It was packed with so many vintage loving people....JUST LIKE ME!!!!
For all of you living in the Lower Mainland you'll be happy to hear that another vintage market in coming soon........be sure to visit the Ivory Vintage Market on June 25th.   Oh, and I almost forgot...some of us Festive Nest girls will be set up outside of Romancing the Home for Ocean Park Days on June 18 &19.  
These were some silver wine goblets I planted up with Hens & Chicks for our Festive Nest Spring Sale (thank you Heather for all your precious grandmother's treasures!)
Happy day!
Happiness calls out responsive gladness in others. There is enough sadness in the world without yours ... never doubt the excellence and permanence of what is yet to be. Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness.— Helen Keller

There is a fabulous vintage market on this weekend in the historic Clayburn Village Schoolhouse.
Located near Abbotsford, BC the Clayburn Village is a hidden gem!


 A visit to Abbotsford would never be complete without a stop at one of my favorite stores,
Roses and Rutabagas Home
This is really one of the most deliciously exquisite stores you'll ever visit full of inspiring and beautiful treasures!!!!

Happy shopping my friends!

Was lucky enough to find another one of these brass cherub lamps at the thrift store....
A couple coats of spray paint, addition of a vintage plate, and doorknob and it is transformed into a pretty liitle stand for holding some treasures.

Happy sunny day my friends!

Just working on packaging a few things up this morning and
couldn't resist taking a few shots of these beautifully detailed teapot spouts.

                                    "Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts
                                          of solitude and the pleasures of company."

                                            Happy day my blogging friends!

Happy Mother's Day!
Now that... my kids are older, I understand how much work and love it takes to raise and to keep a family together.  The example of your strength, devotion, and patience is now rippling through the generations.  Thank you!  ~Forest Houtenschil

I found this old typewriter in a thrift store and bought it with plans to harvest the number and letter keys for different projects......but then......
I was outside doing some planting and just happened to have a piece of  left over moss that fit it perfectly so I couldn't resist adding some soil and a little plant.
I love using junk pieces in the garden......
Happy day!

My friend Carrie, from The Passionate Home in Langley, loves old stuff as much as I do.
  She gave me a bag of vintage treasures to dig through in order to create a necklace for her....here is the first of two that I have made for her (please no peeking Carrie!!).
 The old optical lens looks wonderful paired with this rather gothic looking silver piece.

I am so excited to tell you that Carrie is in the process of moving her store to a BIGGER location!!!  
Be sure to visit The Passionate Home in downtown Langley (reopening this Wednesday!)...you will find wonderful goods for your home, both new and vintage.
