Just Getting Started!

I have collected so many fun vintage and antique finds 
over the last few months.  

Here are a few shots of some of the "vintiques" 
I have already put in the booth.

Original Oil Painting by Ann Varner of Nashville, TN  1974

Wonderful Old Sears Lunch Box with 
Sta-Right Thermos and original cork.

Singer Sewing Machine...great for a book case or nook....1970's Williamsburg style wall clock, two 1940's year books from the University of Georgia, a vintage print of Stone Mountain; a wonderful framed Petite Point framed and matted; an old wicker, faded red stool and of course....Betty with the bow!

A great collection of antique and vintage dinner and decorative plates, including Montreux by Haviland Limoges; Homer Laughlin Royal Maroon and Lady Stratford, 
Spode and more!

An old cedar chest with copper hinges from the early 1900's made by Casewell Runyon; three vintage hand crafted bird houses; an antique fern stand with a great gray patina and a wonderful old heavy, gold leaf framed mirror!

Some vintage and modern day decorator fabrics; vintage rattan bar stool, old bamboo plant stand, cast iron candle sconce, a very old bird cage remnant; burlap, jute and hessian vintage and antique grain sack pillows.

Estate sale, vintage needle point pillow and 
Martha Washington style chair!


Here are a few of some of the American grain sack pillows:




This one sold on day three.....Yay!





This is a vintage, German laundry bag, hand embroidered with the owner's little red initials label.




Indian artwork on grain sacks is rare and collectible!


I am just getting started...
and have some fun ideas for merchandise and new pillows!
Several packages of antique French ticking are waiting in the wings.....so many things to make!  :)

Don't forget, the Wild Flower Festival is this weekend 
in Dahlonega...stop by and visit my booth 
if you find your way here!

Live Authentically,
Martha

It's really coming along! The pillows are wonderful and so unique (well, for me!).
I also particularly love the one which was sold very quickly. It reminds me on the 'Marshal plan' just after the war, when the Americans send food to Germany!

And I do like the little bird houses, very sweet.

Hope that everything will go well for you!
Spear to you soon again,
many greetings,karin

And - by the way, thank you so much for your comments on my blog. Martha. I know that you are very busy, so, I do appreciate that you find time to read blogs!
