  1. Hi Connie. Love all the vintage items! The cannisters are very French and adorable. It looks like you're well on your way! Good luck, Pam

    1. Hi Pam, thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for the lovely comments. have a lovely autumn day. Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  2. While I have been cleaning, you have been busy collecting beautiful item, little miss shop girl! I also kept reading about the new pillows and the French aprons. You almost have me wanting to sew again, but I am fighting the urge. I was wondering, I have collected bundles of old linens to sell and ordered Restoration to clean them, what do you use?

    1. I have know idea what Restoration is . . . I just throw them in the washer on hand wash cycle. Normal laundry soap, and downy :)
      If they don't hold up, then I guess I won't have them to sell. Truth is I have not had anything that hasn't come out in great condition. I think that a lot of the older fabrics are actually better quality than what we buy today.
      Have a lovely autumn day, your blogging sister, Connie :)

  3. Hello, I found you via Throughly Modern Me. I've enjoyed visiting you page today and love your treasures : )

  4. Dear Connie, it was so nice to have you visit me! I can see that you have been very busy with needle and thread as well!! It is that time of year for us to find indoor pursuits! Your pillows are lovely, and I think your booth will be a big hit with fellow to hear from you, thank you, N.xo

    1. Hello Nella, thanks so much for visiting and for your encouraging words.
      Have a wonderful week, Connie :)

  5. Hi Connie took your advice and looked around your blog, I love the jars I have a thing for jars! The canisters with the chickens on are also super cute! Followed your blog and will keep a look out for your new finds :) xx

  6. I do Hope your Dream of one day Opening a Market Booth becomes your Reality. Like you I had a Vision and Dream to do it for too many years... and FINALLY the time has come and within 8 short Months I enlarged the Vision from the original small Booth Space at a new Antique Mall, to now having a new Showroom and Loft Space, including an Art Gallery Wall... I'm LOVING it... and with your Inventory and Passion for Collecting and Creating I'm sure you will have Joy in the experience as well once you find the Timing to be right to begin the Adventure and Journey! I find the Land of Blog to be a particularly Creative and Encouraging Community of like minded Souls who are Kindred Spirits and 'get' and Support each other's Passions and Dreams.

  7. What a fine addition to the store!. Pretty handkerchiefs, beautiful china ... and a kaleidoscope?. Truth is I never seen through a kaleidoscope :). Certainly in my wish bucket.

  8. Can I join you? This is a dream of having a stall/shop and being in France (do you have to speak French though? lol)But we also have some amazing markets in the UK and if I have the stock I would love it. so I crochet & paint and make lots of things and it's also mounting up. maybe one day we can both be for-filling our dream :)Dxx
