Tomato Overload

In July, I sincerely thought that this year's garden would be unsurpassed...then came August and the drought and my Purple Cherokees, Stripey's and German Greens all but dried up.
So... I've loaded the shop with some delicious tomato reds:

Fall Clean Up

It's been over a week since the fabulous Junk Bonanza.  Martha and team rocked the show, so we were told.  For a detailed story head on over to opendoorstudio.

My fall clean up includes getting those orphans that didn't sell back in the shop.
here's a few:

I'm off to Tractor Supply for some yard clean up products, and a lawn tractor mount sprayer.
This summer's drought and several years of lawn neglect have left a lot of damage.
I have relied on the good graces of my neighbor John last fall, but I am going to invest 250.00 in my own sprayer to get the job done.  

Or I could get goats.

Get Ready, Get Set, Get Junk!

In one week, the three day Junk Bonanza at Canterbury Downs will commence!
My vintage team mates from the VintageEtsySocietyStreetTeam are arriving early next week for a day of strategy and set up before the fun/havoc begins on Thursday... early bird times are available.

This is a juried show, and I am thrilled that our team and my shop was chosen to represent the vintage face of Etsy for this event.  Our booth will be stocked with colorful, mid century modern finds.  

We'll replenish each night so that the space will evolve.  I have no worries that we will run out of stock.  I've seen previews and the list is astounding!

I have dozens of original catalog pages from the 1929 Sear&Roebuck catalog for sale...great deco fashion and home decor
