Meet Tattered Goods and The Tattered House ..

At the show last weekend...there were so many great artisans and decorators ..everyone had their own sweet touch and style ..and even though we all had a similiar flare ..our offerings were most definitely unique.

Sheila of Tattered Goods ..is a local gal that lives just a short distance from us. Sheila's one of those gals that has a great personality ..very exuberant ..lighthearted and full of life.

Her offerings were just beautiful ..the first day she had this wonderful antique door that you could lean against a wall or attatch ..she made it into a large chalkboard which I loved ..What a great way to display a quote ..sentiment ..or even a favorite scripture.

Here's a pict. of her space ..I wish I had gotten some close ups ..but if you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can see everything much better.


Oh and Sheila makes the darn cutest dog beds from old drawers. She's quite the creative gal ...and if you want to visit her blog ..click HERE Or..... her Etsy Shop ..click HERE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then we have the Tattered House run by the Tattered Girls ..Erika and Sandy ..Two Sweet Gals with a Passiong for making the house a home....from Roseville, CA ..they came an 8 hour drive away to do the show.

Talk about the nicest gals ..and such unique offerings ..I must say I loved their style ..and I love the burlap that they used in their displays ...


From Totes and Pillows ..Home Decor ....



and Handmade Jewelry ...plus Oh so much more ..their was such a wonderful variety of decadent pieces to choose from ..that I can't imagine anyone went home without a taste of the The Tattered House ...I'm sure it left many desiring to take a drive to Roseville to shop at The Tattered House ..

Meet Shirley from the Le Chateau de Fleurs Sale ....

At our show last weekend ...we were situated to share space with a wonderful lady by the name of Shirley ..from the Cottage in the Garden.

Shirley is a sweetheart of a gal ..and I have to say ..her space and offerings were just lovely. She makes the most beautiful jackets and bloomers from vintage linens ..and everyone loved them so much she sold out the first day.

Besides her handmade Vintage clothing offerings ..Shirley and her husband offered some of the most lovely furniture and home decor pieces.

We quickly made friends with Shirley ..and it was such an enjoyable 2 days to share spaces next to each other ..and to share a bit of our selves with one another.

I have to tell you I was most impressed by Shirley's age which she shared with us. Of course I'm not going to post it here as I don't know how Shirley would feel about that ..but what I will say is she is an inspiration. Those equal in age to her ..tend to be feeble or incapabable of the work load that she tended too both days ..I only hope I have an equal amount of energy when my years roll around to equal hers. It just goes to show that your only as old as you allow yourself to be. Keepy busy and keep going ..If you sit down and quit you'll grow old ..

Alrighty ....here's some picts of Shirleys space ..she's in a few of them.


























Stay Tuned for more picts from the show ...I have lots of new creative friends to share with you all !!!

More Prayers Please ...

Well it seems when one set of prayers is answered another set of prayers is needed. I feel like we have been living in some long dream sequence this last few weeks.



To all of you who have been visiting my blog and leaving such beautiful comments and saying prayers for my Dad ...the Good news is ..he had his surgery ..did very well ..the Dr. was able to save the artery and open it wide ..and we are pretty much out of the woods for a stroke...Praise God !!! He's home and looking Great ..if it wasn't for the big bandage on his neck ..you wouldn't know he went through surgery ..this is the best he has ever looked after a surgery and I know it's because so many of you were praying for him. God Heard and he answered and all Praise be to him !!!

As for my More prayers Please Title ..Yesterday we brought Dad home ..My Sis and her husband came over to see him ..and about 2 hours later we were called that my sis was in a very bad car accident ..and going to the ER. She was on a very crowded off ramp nearby ..that I hate to get on because people drive absolutely crazy at this off ramp and cut in and cause accidents all the time. I have said for years they need to put cones up on the long stretch so people cannot cut in ..How many lives will be changed until something is done. Unfortunately my sis was one of those caught in the middle. From what we can gather ..a lady must have tried cutting in behind her ..at full speed and was not able to stop and plowed into the back of her throwing her car into the one in front. The picture of her car are unbelievable ..it is totalled ..the trunk is in the back seat literally ..We are Thanking God the kids were not with her or they would have been dead. Her air bags did not deploy and she was thrown into the steering wheel. Her face is so swollen, black and blue and she has fractured the bone that holds your teeth and nose in place. As well she is battered and bruised and so sore. It is without a doubt an absolute miracle she is alive. I told her the angels were surrounding her and saved her. She will have to see a maxiofacial surgeon this week. To determine if surgery will be needed. And of course we are very concerned as each hour passes that nothing else will happen. So once again we call on all our dear friends for prayer. Healing prayer and to Guide us to a Dr. that is very capable and skilled and can help her.



Thank You again for all your sweet and lovely comments ..I look forward to posting some lighter side posts and sharing more pictures of our show and of course getting the Free Giveaway winner picked ..



Please remember Life is about choices...in all we do. When we are driving a car ..we tend not to see it as a deadly weapon and poor choices behind the wheel ..when we are tired ..in a hurry..talking on a cell phone ..etc...all these things though small in our minds can truly be the undoing of our own lives ..but more importantly that of others. Although this person did not intentionally hit my sis ..a poor choice led to an accident that could have otherwise been avoided. Remember consider others when you make choices ..your choices affect everyone.

Hugs and Blessings ...Sara

Picts from the show ...

Well we got home late last night ..it was a long day at the hospital .....Thank You to everyone who has left comments that they are holding my Dad up in Prayer ..



Today had it's good parts and it's bad ..



I won't go into all in detail ..but for now I'll say ..His Heart and Brain looked fine in the angiogram ..but he has a very severe blockage in his corotid ..that the Dr.s are calling high risk ..we have an early morning appt. with another surgeon for another opinion and between the 2 drs they are going to decide which type of surgery has the least high risk. So we are not out of the woods by far ..but God is good and has brought us some wonderful caring Dr.s that are doing their best to give my Dad life..Please keep the prayers coming we are most Grateful for them all.



Now on to sharing pictures from the show we did this last weekend.



Well here we were all loaded up and ready to go ...Abbey and I did a fair job of packing everything and getting it all strapped down ..we only overlooked a few things ..but we caught them in time before getting on the freeway...





About an hour after we arrived we got this far in setting up ...I found a pair of the ladders at a sale a few months back ..these have the nice deep steps great for displaying...









Dad put together this Chandelier for us ..or as I called it a Plantelier ...LOL !!! Made from Vintage garden fence wire ..Zinc French Sap buckets that we planted with..begonias ..and hung from wonderful tattered and chippy white paint chain..this was our wonderful centerpiece inside the pop-up top....






The lovely bench didn't last the first day ...it went off to a lovely new home ..a husband and wife fell in love with it ..and a few of our smalls ...and it was a must have for them....I can't wait to put together more pieces like this one ...







This Cabinet was a favorite of Abbey's and mine ..with it's many drawers and Floral stenciled screen door ..it too made it's way to a new home on the first day ..while the lovely vintage slipper chair found it's new home the second day ...








Here's a Shot of our booth almost done ..on set up day ...







This lovely white dresser ..didn't find a new home ..so maybe next time ..in the meantime ..it will reside with us ..here at the farmhouse ..





See our Framed Logo in the background ..That was a quick handmade sign I put together the day before the show ...I'll share with you in a later post how simple it is to put together a sign for your booth if your in a time crunch ...










These were all my baskets and boxes I took ..Yes I still have some available ..I will be posting them soon ..I'll keep you posted as to when and where ... and of course on the second day ..the paper roses you see ..that was all I had left ..the first day I was wiped out ..I made 3 dozen and they were gone in the blink of an eye ..





The Night Stand ..is really Cute 3 drawers ..Covered in Burlap and embellished with antique lace ..





My Garden Girl ...She is a very heavy solid piece of statuary ..she's holding a basket of flowers ...I absolutely adore her ...she didn't sell ..I was a bit shocked ..I was sure someone would grab her up ..but that's o.k. she's now quietly overlooking my garden ...



This is a shot of the booth on the second day ...Of course I was so busy the first day I forgot to get the old camera out and take pictures ...I have to learn to be better with the camera ..I have always been a bit camera shy myself buy I am seeing this is a hurdle I must overcome.






And Here's that sweet metal Cupboard we did ...doesn't it look beautiful ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The show was an absolute success ...Christy Repasy and Rita of Mammabellarte ...did a Fabulous job ..and of course Dean Rita's husband was so helpful from helping carry the heavy stuff ..to making a great Lunch both days and serving up cappuccinos to keep everyone going. This show was well put together and top notch in my book ..

Also ...Beth of Stampington Art ..came to the show ..and shot alot of pictures ..it was a pleasure to meet her . Plus ..Polly of the Porch Magazine or maybe you know her from the French Cupboard ..asked for photos of the show ..so Rita has sent them in to her ..very exciting all the way around.

I look forward to the future and what it brings ..this was a new step in a new direction and it really boosted my morale greatly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have more pictures of the show ...and all the other great ladies who offered their wares ..and those will be coming throughout the week as I get time.

I hope you have enjoyed ...

Blessings ...your Kindred Friend ...Sara

I will hopefully begin sharing picts from the show with you Tonight or tomorrow ..But ... I am headed out with my Parents to the hospital today ..My Dad is having some very serious health issues ..relating to his heart and arteries. He has already had a triple bi-pass and corotid artery surgery and we are looking at another artery surgery again. He has been having mini strokes ..so today will be the angiogram to determine what the course of action will be. His procedure will be at 3:30 today so all your prayers would be greatly appreciated. My Dad is only in his early 60's and a young 60 at that very active and vibrant ..so this is very scary for all of us.

So Yesterday I said I would share a picture of our business cards I have been working on ..Of course this picture doesn't do them justice nor show the hours of work that have gone into them. We started making business cards like this about 8 years ago ..and when we had our antique shops ..we ran out of them quicker than I could make them. You really have to love what you do to put the time and effort into them ...and they do pay off ..people remember a GREAT business Card.





So Here it is ...I used the old shipping tags ..and ran them through a paint and aging process ..then added a piece of vintage scrap lace ..topped them with a printed torn and aged edge card ..and tied the top off with a piece of cute cream and white check homespun ..I have a cute idea for displaying them ..but that's a secret ..I'll share picts of it from the show with you all...next week.

Well Today ..I have been finishing up pieces have started and finished 2 others and have 3 more awaiting me at the kitchen counter. The House looks like a bomb went off ..I know what I'll be doing ALL next week ..That really bad 5 letter word " Clean" ...LOL !!!

Alrighty off to work some more ..Hope you are all having a most Lovely of Lovely Days ..

A taste of Goodness !!!

Hi there Blogerettes !!!

What's Cookin at your Place ???




Well if you know me by now ..you know I'm a major chocoholic !!! Can't get enough of the stuff ever ..I think I might ...that is if I'm desperately ill in the head ..go without some form of chocolate 1 day out of an entire month ..but it is without a doubt a part of my daily diet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I whipped up an old recipe that I found many years ago in an old cookbook I got yard saleing ...and it was just as delicious as I remember it from years back.

what's great is it's So Easy to make and actually doesn't consist of anything to bad for you ..a definite bonus !!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chocolat Fudge Pudding Cake ...

This is a piece from the dish of it I made ...along with a scoop of Hagen Dazs Vanilla Yogurt ...




This Pudding cake is so fun to make ...It starts off with a thick batter that you spread in a square bake dish ..then add liquid on top ..and as it cooks the cake rises and the liquid forms a fudgy pudding that sinks below ...Is your mouth watering yet ???

Well I'm going to share the recipe with you ..because a girl has to have her chocolate ...below I have pictured the original recipe sheet and a close up of the recipe ...




( click on the picture for larger image and save if you like )
Now I know it says ..." SOFTASILK CAKE FLOUR" ... its an old recipe ..just use your normal everyday flour ..and sift the ingredients as it directs. ... That's how I do mine.

It's simple ...It's Easy.... It's Quick ..when your needin a little chocolate fix ..and it's fairly light on the hips ..

Well let me know if you make it ..and if you like it ...

Happy March !!!
