Angel's Attic Autumn Open House!

Come join us Saturday, September 25th from 9am-4pm for the last Angel's Attic show of the season!  As usual, we will be packing out every inch of the attic and overflow onto the beautiful grounds of my mom's house!  There are some incredible furniture pieces to be had at this sale that have been lovingly restored by my talented step-dad, Jon along with one-of-a-kind art pieces, french decor, harvest goods, and newly designed jewelry pieces.  In addition, we'll have some great end-of-year prices! Come browse the displays with a hot beverage and tasty treat that will be provided and enjoy one of the last few vintage sales of the season! 
(Look for these signs!  Directions below...)

Dresser Anyone?

My goodness, I have too many dressers.  I think I'm magnetically attracted to them at sales.  I always make a beeline straight to an old dresser...maybe it's because they're so versatile.  Besides the fact that every member in the family needs a dresser for clothing, they are also great for using in an entryway (with a cute mirror above it, of course) to store hats, gloves, dog leashes, etc.  Put two small matching dressers under a door and you now have a workspace with storage.  The possibilities are endless which brings me to my point...I have FIVE, 5, cinco dressers in all shapes and sizes that are coming with me to The Funky Junk Show this weekend.  I will have some other great pieces of furniture as well, but I'm telling you, if you're on the lookout for a new dresser, Funky Junk in Sandpoint is the place to be.  Where else would you rather spend your weekend?  Sandpoint has fabulous shopping, restaurants, a gorgeous lake, and an awesome antique show happening all at once this weekend.  Here are a few sneak peeks of some of the items that I'll be bringing:

(ok, not exactly a dresser, but a pale blue buffet/sideboard)

(I'm positive that I'll have your initial in stock of bubble necklaces - plus many other images!)

(stylish coasters)

Enough peeking, you'll have to see the rest at the show!

Funky Junk Sandpoint!

No I didn't fall off of the face of the earth...although there were days, many of them, this past summer that sounded nice.  A while back, my husband took a new job in Sandpoint, ID and our home has been on the market during arguably one of the worst housing markets in years.  Not.fun.at.all.  Between losing skin on my hands from so many Clorox wipes, constantly nagging at my kids to clean up their toys, picking up in the wake of destructo-child (my one-year-old), and having "surprise" house showings where realtors and their clients are suddenly in the entryway of your house...right after getting out of the shower.  Yes, a transposed phone number entered into the MLS listing is never good.  Somebody was getting messages about my house being shown, just not me...  But the bright side is we finally sold the house, completed the home inspection, and finally expect to be settled in Sandpoint sometime in October.  Thank goodness my poor husband doesn't have to keep driving the 3 hours a day for much longer.  The icing on the cake is that a family with THREE girls, just like us, will be moving into the house just like I had secretly wished.  And I'd almost opened up that can of beige paint, closed my eyes, and did away with the girly bedrooms...Sabrina Soto from "Get It Sold" was getting to me.

Even with our house on the market, I was trying to squeeze as much junkin' and painting in as possible.  I know one couple that came to see our house in July got to see my furniture projects in action.  Half way through painting the top of a dining table...phone rings...realtors says "we'll be right over"...husband and I madly pile furniture into the corner of our backyard.  And I'll never forget the couple that came during one of the "surprise" showings that peeked into the garage and saw the naked vintage mannequin that I'd just picked up laying right in front of the door.  I hadn't had a chance to take it to storage yet.  Needless to say, the shut that door quickly and left! Doesn't everyone have one of those laying around?  I couldn't quite give up the junkin' habit, I just had to squirrel it away elsewhere (No, I'm not a hoarder).

But on with the show...The Funky Junk Show that is!  I'm so excited to be part of this weekend up in Sandpoint.  I knew it would be a bit challenging with potentially moving, but I wouldn't miss it for the world.  The gals that put on the show, Hollie and Jennifer, are incredibly awesome women.  There isn't enough I can say about them.  Hard-working, talented, and moms to boot, they put on such a great show with a friendly atmosphere.  Here are the details:
September 4th & 5th

Saturday & Sunday; Labor Day Weekend

Oden Hall Grange (134 Sunnyside Rd.)

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

$2 admission (good both days!); 12 and under free

To get to Funky Junk: Wait until Labor Day Weekend, then go through Sandpoint on Hwy. 95; be in the right lane at the junction & continue on Hwy. 200; about 7 miles NE of downtown, take the Sunnyside Rd. exit and you're there! Follow the Funky Junk signs to the junk retreat of the season!

And an added bonus - I've had the privilege to make the official Funky Junk Bubble Necklaces for the show!  Look for them next to the Funky Junk t-shirts and the first two shoppers in line get a free necklace!

Hope to see you there!!

Summer Fun!

I can't believe my baby (Summer) is 1!  It's been a whirlwind year with full of changes, challenges, but filled with plenty of smiles from our miracle baby!  Even though the 4th of July weekend was rainy, we made the best of it with our little family party...

Thank you!

An huge "Thank you!" is overdue to all the wonderful (and patient) Farm Chicks shoppers who braved the crowds and came out this last weekend.  This wonderful show would not be possible without you and it what makes all of this special.  I only wish I would have had more time to chat with everyone.  I hope you all found a treasure or two to take home and enjoy!


Fellow Farm Chicks Vendors

One of my favorite things about The Farm Chicks Show is seeing the awesome amount of creativity that exists.  It is inspiring and makes me feel so wonderful to be a part of!  Although, I seriously could have taken a million pictures, I had about 15 minutes to walk around the show before the floodgates opened.  I snapped a few, as I was carrying around some purchases, so some are a bit blurry, but I wanted to share them anyway.
The adorable Farm Chicks Carnation milk truck
Heather Bullard - so beautiful

Funky Junk Hollie and Ballyhoo Christy (just love them!)

Lisa Souers - always a huge inspiration for me!
Unexpected Necessities - some of the sweetest women I know

Tarte- what can I say?  She's awesome!
Happy Endings- more local talent
