No, we’re not dead
But we feel a little lifeless this morning.
Last minute arranging,
Twenty-five in line by 8:05,
It didn’t stop them that it was pouring!
‘Scuse me, pardon me,
Hey, that’s mine!
I’ll fight you for that Betty!
Live greens, mirrors,
Rustic meets French
And photos snapped by Brooke Gianetti!
and warm up breaks for staff
By noon it was basically over!
Now we’re on the hunt again
thinking of an “evening soirée plan,
We’ll see you in October!!!
How many times did I hear, “I don’t know how you do it with three kids!” Don’t ask me but here’s what it looks like. Kitchen in full operation mode. The macs were a SMASH! I sold TWENTY DOZEN macarons! I selected fun flavors for spring: Pistachio, Lemon, Chocolate, Blackberry, Raspberry and Lavender. I will never tire of seeing someone bite into one for the first time. And how fun to tell everyone they were made with eggs from my hens!
The line was down the driveway – see the little dark haired gal on the far right? That’s Brooke – what a doll and how kind and lovely of her to mention our little sale on her gorgeous website!
Salvaged cubby – SOLD!
Twenty Dozen Easter Macs!
10 foot tall salvaged shutters – To-die-for!
One thing I could not do with three kids in tow on the day it ended up happening (because of rain) was help Mom style the sale – SUCH a disappointment. So she did the entire thing by herself! Hauling, lifting, hanging! IT WAS AMAZING!
The Shed was tricked out like a rustic greenhouse – with a little At Home Design & Parisienne Farmhouse furniture thrown in for fun!
‘Member the Curio?? Can you believe this is the only after photo I got??? DUGH!
The sale started, I was working like a fool, selling, suggesting, directing and thirty minutes flew by – I turned around and POOF! It was gone! I had that baby priced to move ($275.00) and move she did! I’ll miss her!
Could have at least moved my Latté for the photo!
How about that Moss chandie by Mom, There are little votive holders in there – wonder how many times THAT will be copied in Blogland?? Could you blame ’em?
My de-silvered, sheet music mirror and my sweet little buffet – gone! But alas the aviary I still have – which I can’t believe seeing as they are so hot right now – I’ll be putting it on Parisienne Farmhouse if anyone wants it!
Just look at that! She took her work table (the Shed is where she paints her stuff) and went hog nutty with a staple gun and burlap – can you ever have too much burlap???
If you are confused about the layout of our sale – we use Mom’s tin roofed carriage shed and a series of tents and her courtyard style backyard. Look at those little, gilded chairs… my cousin who has EXQUISITE taste bought those to recover for her little boys bedroom.
More spring garden theme! Look at those green topiary forms from a garden in PARIS! That’s right – Shop the Shed now has items from France!
Got to love those harvest angels!
SO WONDERFUL to meet so many bloggers and visit with the ones I have met before.
We thank you FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS for your business and loyalty.
Whew – I am tired all over again!
I’ll recover for a few days and be good as new, ready to hit the garden as soon as all this mess dries out.
More important than any object found or item created is the celebration of the Resurrection of my Savior Jesus!
THE TOMB IS EMPTY!
HE IS RISEN INDEED!
