Well... I was two posts short in my attempt to do 7 pre-party peeks (NOT Peaks... thank you anonymous). Hopefully I can make up for it with more photos than you probably care to see!
|Pictured above are my friends Laura and Stacey (sisters). Laura was my painting-partner-in-crime, and Stacey|
(owner of Poochie Prints) was my paper pimp -- hooking me up with the evite, price tags, and a welcome card. She even came through with white circle stickers after I checked every drugstore in a 5-mile radius.
|Welcome card designed by Stacey at Poochie Prints. Thanks Stace!|
And here is my basement converted to the "Somethings Sale" boutique.
|I got a little crazy with the sassed up mason jars, but they are just so A-mason-ing (amazing, lol!). Also loved|
how the painted cheese dome cloches came out. I knew my cheese dome collection would come in handy!
|There was so much great stuff in this boyish corner. The vintage rackets, the black drawers, the vintage car and the succulents all sold. This green kids chair that I painted did not sell, and I'm so happy because I really wanted to keep it :) I'm loving green right now. I have three other kids chairs waiting to be painted. I think I am going to do something like this.|
|My friend Becky purchased this handpainted driftwood "Lucky" sign with the horseshoe. She's superstisious and plans to hang it above her entry door. Any my other friend bought the upcycled candy jar. It looked a lot like this one did before I painted it. She is going to give it as a gift to someone (who may be a reader of this blog) so I won't mention her name ;)|
|Lots of fun stuff over on this table -- Poochie Prints stationery sets, vintage lanterns, an old scale, and lots of bowls and knick knacks.|
|How great are those old movie reels!!! They would be so great as decoration in a tv or movie room like they did in this Ballard Design photo. They're also perfect decoration for an outdoor movie night -- ya know, like this amazing one from bash please.|
|Chairs were a HOT item. Our cousin Maggie is the proud new owner of those awesome orange nailhead club chairs. My friend and co-worker Kristin bought all three of the painted wooden chairs and is going to do an awesome mix of chairs around her kitchen table. And my friends Linds and Nick are probably going to buy the black leather chair (wink wink). It's a steal considering it kinda resembles this $700 one from Ballard Design. Stretching it? Ok fine. But it does look exactly like this $122 one from Brookstone.|
|Fall decorations weren't too popular, but I did sell the owls, the vintage scale and the succulent in the brown teapot. And no, I'm not ashamed to eat the candy corn out of the vases that didn't sell.|
THANK YOU to all my friends, family, and friends of friends who attended! I hope you'll join me again next year :)
