Seaside S*U*M*M*E*R Vignette in progress...


I like to create small vignettes in the entryway of our home, for each upcoming Holiday/Season ~ using mostly VINTAGE FINDS...  Now that the Red-White-Blue of 4th of July is over and S*U*M*M*E*R is in "Full~Swing" ~ I find myself inspired by ViNtaGe Seaside Collectibles...

"Working On"
August's Seaside Summer Vignette...
I can't believe I "Almost" brought this FaB
 ChiPPy-White Lantern to the Door County Show!!!
  Sooooo glad I came to my senses!*!*!  An Over-The-Top ViNtaGe  F*I*N*D ~ netted a few years back in New Hampshire...




All it took was this single
 ViNtaGe OYSTER CONTAINER
to inspire this vignette...  Fab Find - netted
 on our recent Iowa Trip...
Can't wait to *SEE* what else develops!*!*!

I'm soooo glad I have a little "free me-time" 
before I need to get ready for my
 NEXT Selling Venue
ELKHORN FLEA - WISCONSIN
AUGUST 10th
TIME TO ENJOY S*U*M*M*E*R
