Vendor Goods... you're goin' to love them!

Karen Greenfield's Primitive Goods!
Pumpkins, felted wool, button designs & witches!
Promise the only spell she'll put on you is
that you'll love her stuff! 

  A Bit of Vintage by Sally Wells
A wonderful collection of necklaces made 
with vintage trinkets. It will be hard to choose
just one! She'll be bringing other vintage & 
primitive goods as well! 

One woman's junk... well we know it's always 
a treasure with Daffadowndilly's! Cammie Methany
has just returned from the Nebraska Junk Jaunt.
I'm sure some of these treasures will be heading
to Shopkeeper & Friends this Saturday! 

These pictures of Paula Conner's wares 
are from our June Shopkeeper & Friends market.
 I can't wait to see what she's bringing this time! 
You can always expect wonderful primitives from 

Poverty Hills will be here with
more PUMPKINS! ... and I'm 
sure a few treasures from the farm as well! 

These are just a few of the vendors that will be
joining us on Saturday! More introductions to come tomorrow!

Wedding Reception... vintage style!

I was lucky enough to have a son (that used to say
he's never going to have that old stuff!) and   
daughter-in-law that likes vintage!
They had a destination wedding and 
then we had a party!
The reception was very casual... which I loved.
I'm not a fancy dress kind of girl! 

Stenciled signs guided guests to the reception
site in the country.

On each side of the entrance hung two banners 
made from burlap & stenciled read
All we need is love
Love is all we need

An old turquoise wheelbarrow filled with greens and
a hanging ball jar welcomed guests at the door.
A friend from the Whistle Stop did our flowers 
for us. Thanks Linda! They were just perfect!

Their guest book was a hand drawn tree.
Every guest stamped a thumb print and signed their name. 

Got Wisdom?
Friends & family were encouraged to share advise.

The tags were then dropped in the vintage birdcage.
Little old drawers held the tags.
The birdcage came from Simply Bungalow
in Lincoln, NE. 

Two love birds topped the birch frosting cake.
I found them on ETSY after the kids got engaged.
The forks were stamped with Mr. & Mrs. 
from Jill Ruth & Co. 

This vintage three tier table was repurposed
for a dessert stand. We made 125 mini peach
and apple pies!

Old porch posts were repurposed by the "Mr." 
for a clothesline to hold a time line of pictures.
A friend of the bride wood burned tree 
branch rounds that read
happy together

The food table was up on stage. To keep anyone
from falling off we used an old chicken feeder 
filled with ferns, daisies, ribbons and hanging
ball jars with floating candles. 
The old flash cards read...
she said yes

Another old drawer held hand stamped bags
filled with cookies!

The galvanized bucket was stenciled with birds
to hold ice cream cups.

Was tubs held pop, water & spirits!

We had games out on the lawn for everyone to play.

One of my favorite little people. 

An antique chalkboard for the kids
to draw. 

Guests received blue & green rock 
candies as a favor.  The sign read
You "rock" for sharing in our day!
