I've been drawn to the **SeaSide** Look THIS SUMMER...

With Elkhorn Flea clicking at my heels ~ This UpComing Sunday, June 30th - to be exact, - I'm back ON-THE-HUNT for some fresh "fill-in" show stock...  THIS SUMMER I'm finding myself being drawn to a "SeaSide" Look...
  I came across ~ and purchased this Over-The-Top-FaB ViNtaGe Drinking Glass Caddy, - still retaining it's Original "SailBoat Motif" Drinking Glasses as well ~ OMG!*!*!

 I've NEVER seen a carrier like this, 
let alone the original sailboat drinking glasses...
Sorry ~ it's a keeper FOR NOW!*!*!

Just FaB Sailboat-Water Motif!*!*!

CRaZy Weather - This Past Weekend, Northwind Perennial Farm's 17th Annual Garden Show...

This year's Dealers brought some FaB ViNtaGe Finds to the 
Northwind Perennial Farm Show - just outside of Lake Geneva Wisconsin!*!*!  The First 2-Hours of FRIDAY'S SHOW brought a steady buying crowd ~ YES!!!
After the major part of Friday's Storm passed, shoppers trickled in the rest of the day...

Myself, - along with a few others, arrived to find our POP-UP TENT Frames Damaged beyond repair...  Another round of torrential rains hit during the night - "pooling up" way too much water on the tent, causing it to cave...  Thank YOU Fellow Dealers for all your help getting me up and selling again!!!
  The rest of Saturday stayed DRY & the ShoPPers came...

Architectural Pillar Prop Base...
"Butterfly" Candle Snuffer...

First Item to Sell...
Over The Top FaB Garden Windmill!*!*!
I stabilized/preserved it's "chippy paint patina"
with a couple coats of a clear urethane sealer...
Note:  For an even more durable sealer - especially on wood pieces outdoors,
  "Spar Varnish" works extremely well...

I LoVed this Look!!!
Re-Purposed, 2 piece, cage like planter...

~*Garden Girl Planter *~
PeRfeCtLy Rusty in all the right places...

Re-Purposed "Funnel Planter"...
Architectural Column & Vent...
