The Vintage Cottage Shop



I have been working for Julie at "The VINTAGE COTTAGE" this week and a couple days earlier in the month to get her shop ready for the September Show that starts, TOMORROW, Thursday the 19th-Saturday 21st!  I did the "Shabby Room", the silver vignette and most of the last photo! I work on Friday, 10-4!!! This shop as well as 5 others are in Carver, MN. Each shop is unique! There are a couple of "junk" shops in the mix Something for everyone! I hope you can visit me on Friday!

Tomorrow is hubby's birthday and I'm also going to the October Afternoon warehouse sale. I'm meeting up with Tammy (Tammy's In Love)! It's a great sale of their papers, embellishments, and more at great prices!

THANK YOU for your sweet comments about the arbor that my handsome son made! He said that he is going to have his friend use a  paint sprayer and paint it for me! That is extra nice!

Glad the garage sale is over! Now to get it cleared out so the cars can park in it!

I went to a "dealers home" last night and bought a couple of goodies! I'll show you soon! I wish I could have taken photo's of her home! It was AMAZING!!! A nice mix and match of antiques( real ones), shabby and junk! She has the touch!!!

Warmly,
deb

Hey there Miss Deb!
You're so good at doing displays. The shop looks great.
I'm glad to hear that you're meeting up with Tammy. I was so tempted to go. But I rarely use scrap paper, and I just know that I'd want to buy it all up just because it looks so pretty!
Have a blast at the sale!
Erica :)

Wow Deb! Your displays are gorgeous! So enticing. I hope the sale goes well.

What a sweet son to make you an arbor and then get it painted for you. Talented, and handsome as well!

Sounds like you have been a busy gal. Looking forward to seeing what you bought from the dealer.
