THanK Y*O*U...  THanK Y*O*U...

ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPers!*!*!

Friday Afternoon's WEEKEND WEATHER PREDICTION
 looked beyond fabulous for this PAST SaTurDay's Sale!!!
  With just a 1percent chance of rain, and low wind levels, I made the decision to *Set-Up* in my favorite spot, ~ on the crest of our driveway by the *RoadSide*...

By 7am Saturday Morning, I was completely set-up
 with all the final touches...
  I sent "Frog-Husband" out & about to put up the SaLe Signs around Town... I was just about ready to start taking some pics - when 2 runners came up to me and showed me their phone ~ OMG!!!  
In the next 10 minutes the weather was going to take a SEVERE TURN!!! ~ YOU could see it coming in the sky to the SouthWest...  The wind was picking up... I crazily went to work on covering my electric chandeliers, laying items down, and sandwiching furniture from the front lawn area - under my two tents...  

THE STORM CAME ~ But so did my ChiPPy-SHaBBy Customers!!!!!!
Needless to say, very few early morning pictures were taken...
Soooo many FaB SHaBBies got away before I was able to 
take pics!!! 

This PAST Friday Afternoon... 


 I LoVe Setting-Up by the light of the CHanDeLieRs...



 Come 9am,  - the wind and rain lessened up a bit, 
staying dry till 2:30, - when we ONCE AGAIN
got hit with stormy conditions...



 A few items on-the-lawn-area...

Re-Arranging ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S - In-Our-Home...

I'll have to say, I've REALLY MISSED 
Re-arranging/Changing-Out - Displays ~  In-Our-Home,
 -with my ChiPPy-SHaBBy ViNtaGe FiNds THIS YEAR...
 I've had way toooo many Shows in-a-row, without a much needed break - FOR BALANCE in my life...
 This PAST HoLiDay Weekend ~ I Had time to ReLax!!!
JUST MOVING A FEW ViNtaGe SHaBBy PIECES AROUND IN OUR HOME, Was So Uplifting!!! 

FARMHOUSE STYLE CUPBOARD
ALWAYS ON-THE-HUNT!*!*!
On our way to a Wedding - All dressed up in fancy clothes & heels,
we made a "Pit-Stop" at an Antique Store ~ Netting this FaB
Keeper-Find of a Cupboard!!!
LoViNg It Sooooo,
  we switched it out with another piece I had ~
The perfect spot in my office/loft...


~* VINTAGE WINDOWS *~
Aren't Just For Hanging...
This past Spring - I netted a fab *Keeper-Find-Window* at 
Junk Juiblee in Iowa...
  THIS WEEKEND I found the perfect place for it ~
Tucked On Top & Behind ~The FarmHouse Style Cupboard!!!  
I had made some "Moss & Butterfly" Branches to adorn
a display at Elkhorn Flea - and now they've found their way 
to one of my FaB ChiPPy-Enamel French Pitchers!*!*!


 





Not being a big fan of "fake flowers/branches",
I find USING REAL BRANCHES adorned with funky 
butterfly cut-outs & green moss ~ add just the right touch
 to adorn vintage finds for the summer season!*!*!



Long time keeper find of mine,
ViNtaGe BASKET WITH BARBOLA,
is a great "Catch-All" for Shop/Business Card Info I've 
picked up in my travels...



HORSERADISH CAFE
Out & About on a Day Trip - This past 4th of July,
Frog Husband & I found this
 *Funky-White ViNtaGe Bus* -  
Turned UpScale FOOD TRUCK EATERY!!!
