Greetings from Atlanta!
Hey y'all (well, I AM in Georgia)! I'm so excited! I'm in Atlanta at the gift show and unearthing new vendors and getting reacquainted with some of my favorites! I have been here two days and have only been thru 3/4 of one building. I am not lolly gagging folks, there's 20 floors to this building and 2 more buildings to go..so many wonderful goodies!
I was also able to see several of my pieces used in the showroom of KD Vintage!! Kathy, owner and creator extraordinaire visited me at the Country Living Fair last year and loaded up her trailer with urban farmhouse finds. She completely redesigned her showroom and worked these pieces into her fabulous displays. Here in her vintage pink Christmas vignette is a darling petite dresser I found. The top middle drawer was missing so I covered it with an old piece of ceiling tin. On top of the dresser is a architectural piece of porch railing. Sorry for the photo quality, took it with my phone. Don't they look great with Kathy's designs?
It's very overwhelming and exhausting but I am so thankful to have the opportunity to find and bring you gorgeous new treats. I've found some ruffly white totes, fabulous purses and pillows with vintage ephemera graphics, drool worthy crowns, short, flouncy white skirts to dress up any side chair, red mercury glass hearts (for your Valentine's Day sweeties), the most darling little robins complete with a perfect springtime chapeau, and so much more. I can't wait to share it all with you! I hope you're staying warm...it's FREEZING down here...and to think I picked the hotel that had a roof top pool. This week it's just for the Polar Bear Club and I am NOT a member, thankfully.
