Fall Afternoon.....

It was well deserved ~ the absolutely beautiful Fall day we had here today in NC.
The high was 71 degree and yes, as I type this I am wearing a SWEATSHIRT!!
YIPPEE!! I have been waiting like over 100 days to say that!
Mr. OTM had a great idea today. Since I am getting ready to participate in my first antique in quite awhile, he suggested that I practice my booth set up! He measured out my space for me in the side yard and lightly spray painted the outline so I could set up within the space.
All the stuff really inspired me so I decided to take some pics and let you get a sneak peek at some of the goodies that I am going to be taking to the show!
I got my hands on some REAL bittersweet this year and LOVED how it looked with everything
Picked up this old ice cream maker this morning! Don't you just love the color of the bucket?

Yep, I know what you're thinking~ it's exactly what I thought when I laid eyes on this door...


I actually fell under the charm of this old cadet cot and decided to plop down and lay there, right in the yard and look at the tree tops and think about all the other stuff I should be doing. The stack of old feather pillows was so comfy and the breeze could have literally drifted me off to sleep. I want to take my bed outside from now on and just pretend that there isn't anything out there that could ruin my fantasy~like mosquitos!

LOVE the old ticking fabric..

yet another door that is seriously too die for~not kidding~ I may not even sell it~ I am having separation anxiety over this one..

Okay...I need to figure out how I can have bittersweet grow here at my house 365 days a year...I never want to be without it...

YES...It's a flower cart! And yes I will show more pics and YES I am having trouble even thinking about selling it! This one is 911 serious! I can't bear the thought of letting it go. I have two weeks to think about it and then the show! Oh what to do???!! HELP! This is an antique emergency ~like my friend Joey would say ! I don't know what I am gonna do! I'll put like 1000.00 on it and see what happens! LOL!

This little cupboard is so simple yet it has this awesome handle! You gotta love it.
Well this ace photographer is pooped out and ready to hit the hay.
I really don't ever know what I am doing when I take pictures but I liked these today! It was all in the bittersweet...it made everything just POP as the pros would say!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Hi Beth
You are too funny! I'm glad you're having so much fun while working :) I have to get down there one day soon to see you and see what you've got in the shop. Do you know anyone who wants to buy or sell a house? Call me if you do.
Hugs, Rhondi

So many great things. And I love the bittersweet it just makes everything look perfect for Fall.

Put $500 on the door, put $500 on the cart then when they don't sell, bring um back home and say things like, "Oh isn't too bad those two items were the only ones that didn't sell!", and "Boy, I can not understand why no one bought those two really awesome things!" Then put them in your house and the guilt will just fade away...

I say that you just "accidently" forget to load the cart for the show...OOPS!
Bittersweet is the perfect fall accent and so much fun for instant color.
