Spring Market Recap

I want to start by saying a very special thank you to everyone who made it out last Saturday to the store & to all my friends who set up shop for the day.
A thank you to My Wild Children's Photography for taking all these beautiful pictures included in this post . You truly captured the happenings of the day (love!!!). Here are just a few highlights of the day :)
The weather for the Spring Market couldn't have been more perfect. The shop was stocked...

 
We had Culturehouse Coffee Roasters in the store, the coffee was amazing. Look for another pop up day soon at the store.  



The Mason Jar bunny make & take crafts were a hit, look for "Earth Day" Make & Takes April 23rd at the store, more info TBA. My Libby did a great job with the kids as always.


Hawks Homestead brought some extra goodies and set up for the day, as always you can find her line at my store all the time. Loving her new display & she happened to use my line of Milk Paint on it, her favorite color is Patina.  


The mugs Libby & make started a year ago as a little something extra to have at the grand opening of my new space... well they have become a hit & here to stay.


We had some milk paint demos inside and outside thanks to the nice weather.


We will be open this Saturday March 19th 11-2pm , we will still have Mary Lenke Handmade & Lola Bean's set up for this weekend, along with our normal lines from The Olde Farmhouse, Hawks Homestead & Rustic Revivals & Sassyfrass.

A handmade Holiday

 
Last week I shared the above picture on Instagram   with a heartfelt post about much I love our little home, its not perfect & I will never take it for granted. Everything inside our little home was mostly given to us, found curb side to create a home , with love, it was through all these findings I found my creativity & passion. I love that I look at a "snapshot" and see so many stories in one place, every piece had a story behind it.
That big tree in the window was a curbside find by my mother in law & her cousin, they were walking one day, 4 years ago (right after we bought this house), we had just talked about having a big tree for our front window & boom there it was... At the time a new tree was not in the budget or even a real one. I am so happy these years later they decided to drag this big tree all the way home.
This year instead of using all store bought ornaments we wanted our tree to represent us, really it was my eleven year olds idea... if you already know us from my store front or follow us on social media, you already know about my sweet Libby.
But first I want to welcome you into our home, where life is lived ( Psst....  a little secret we are a bit of a hot mess.... and I wouldn't change it for the world.)
I am not one for a ton of decorations, just little touches ... maybe it comes with 4 (yes four) kiddos, they have a lot of messes already so just simple touches like this handmade wreathe made by my friends at the Clutter'd Hutch . They made this one and the ones on my front porch.

In our dining room we painted our pallet tree ( finally a year later !) we are using ours to hold Christmas cards this year.
The tree is filled with colored lights, this was my grandfathers tree, he loved this time of year . He always had colored lights... we hang out vintage elf's, family ornaments & my kids handmade ones on it.

 
In our living room Libby & I painted wood shapes I either already had left over at the store or purchased at dollar / super discounted prices.
We painted them in my milk paint line using Typography .
 
 
We wanted all the ornaments to be in our own handwriting... a little tip we used white charcoal pencils for the lettering on these chalkboards, this makes it harder for the "chalk" to smear and sill has that effect we love.
 
We also made some felt ball garland.... its super easy :)
All you need is some twine or embroidery floss
a sewing needle
about 60 felt balls for a large tree
 
 
We threaded the floss and pushed the needle through the felt balls ....
 
 
This got a little tricky , we don't want you to end up with a big knot like we did , ops! So be sure to have your twine / floss spread out & to push / space a long the way. We found it easier to attach it to our tree & make along the way.
 
 
We then filled the tree in with dollar spot finds from Target & Michael stores.
 
 
 

 
I love the simplicity of our tree & the fact we did it together, I hope my kids remember the stories we together snuggled on the sofa ,  by tree .... 
This super easy DIY felt garland & creating  a handmade home is part of a blog hop hosted by Country Living  & Hometalk . Be sure to check out all the great blogs participating.
