Wild vs. Mild

It's been a wild winter here in central Iowa. Who was I telling this past fall that I predicted a mild winter. I guess my gut feeling isn't always right?! I was just one letter off, but oh, what trouble one letter does make! Grabbed a bunch of pictures at the shop yesterday. Enjoy...



Ivory seam-binding, fabric hearts embellished w/ keys and locks, funky jewelry displayed on an primitive hog scraper (new function), vintage chocolate boxes and perfume bottles, sequined strawberries and flower vases wrapped in wool felted "sweaters"...lots of romance and prettiness at the shop.







Our soldered charms have been a big hit especially w/ our new sarcastic line of charms. An old watch fob used as a locket...



The 7 ft harvest table w/ chalkboard top would be great for after school homework...I mean, the kids could write directly on the gosh darn table to show their work. A quick sponge down, and you're ready to set that same table for supper.






JB's # pillows are all currently sold and then some, but we are working hard to get more batches done ~ you are welcome to place your order ($42.00 for pillow cover w/ feather pillow form or $32.00 for just the pillow cover) they are first come, first serve. The exciting thing is we have new designs coming soon!




I totally have a thing for old brass stencils and vintage baubles (especially pink).



A pretty little girl w/ bangs so short and her church gloves on~love it! How about a painted drop-leaf table in the perfect shade of blue for 2010! And a wire basket filled w/ vintage clothes pins...perfect.

I am so excited to see your post. I was starting to get worried and going to have to call! My momma taught me not to say anything when I couldn't say something nice. So, that is my comment about the weather. The shop photos are great and uplifting. Love it all! Hope you have a busy Saturday and when you have time, give me a jingle!

Love the old bible in one of your pics. I found a really great one this weekend and it had markers in it, which was too cool. Thank you for praying, I really appreciate it!

Hey Brenda! I'm going to be in to check out that barn table!!! I picked up a table on a garage sale last year when I was re-doing our living room/dining room. It isn't the most sturdy thing...so I've had my eye out. Now to find the tape measure to see if it would work! How wide is it? I know you said it was 7 ft long. Check out my post on my living room and tell me if you picture it in there! :)

The shop pictures look so yummy!! Definitely wild weather. After every storm I think this must be it, but then another one rolls in. Hope you are surviving! Someday I will get my butt up to see you. Jordana
