BLAST FROM THE P*A*S*T
One of My FaVoRiTe
ChiPPy-SHaBBy Spring Booth Displays

What Ever Happened to Show Hosts ~ Jason & Ann Marie????
Heard they moved out West in the Mountains????? 
Ann Marie had sooooo much going for her!!!
Book... Magazine Articles... Shows on the Farm...
?????????????


 EACH YEAR, 
before My New Selling  Season begins,
 I like to re-visit past Show Booth Displays...
THIS WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE DISPLAYS!*!*!
I love Shows that allow setting up a day prior!!!
Lots more time to "tweak" this and that...

Snagged these Over-The-Top Fab Corbels!!!

Flowering *BULBS* While~We~Wait!*!*!


J*A*N*U*A*R*Y
~*A TIME OF STILLNESS *~ 
Here in the Midwest
All the HoLiDay Decorations are down...

With SO MUCH Bling & Clutter from Christmas,
 - IT REALLY FEELS GOOD  -
to have things looking a little bare!!!


Opting for Something 
S*I*M*P*L*~*and*~  F*R*E*S*H
While-We-Wait...
SHaBBy White Terrarium filled with L*I*V*E,
 Soon to be Flowering Bulbs!!!
JUST WHAT I NEEDED for a little Winter Perk-Me-Up!*!*!



~** Alive & Green **~
Refreshing Contrast against the Brown Landscape Outside -
which is now covered in SNOW this morning...



 Although this Wood/Glass Terrarium  isn't very old,
it has acquired a ~*Naturally Time-Worn
 ChiPPy Paint Loss PaTiNa*
~ Making for a One-Of-A Kind Find!*!*!
Sooooo Much MORE INTERESTING
Sooooo Much MORE CHARACTER
Than Something Brand New!*!*!
