Fieldstone Market

WE had an amazing day!
The sun shone down on us all day.
I could not have done the day without Shelley, she is such a great friend and a wonderful support..not to mention a hard worker! Shelley works @ Roses & Rutabagas and has great style, loves vintage & anything pretty or with roses on it!
Shelley is a sweetie and I barely gave her a break, except to maybe visit a few booths for minutes only...we where that busy!
If people saw us fighting at the end of the day...well we weren't we where negotiating.....! 
We both love the same things!
 To Bob, my husband loading unloading..getting us stuff and helping buyers to their cars.
The owner of Ecco Dairy said to me as we where closing up..."I saw your husband unloading everything yesterday with you and then today he just carried it all out to the parking lot to other cars!"...and yes he did. 
Thank you to everyone for taking our Vintage Home treasures home!
Thank you to Everyone for coming out! 
Thank you to all our friends & family for your continued support, (my sister Judy even did some sewing for us!) ...although we know you all think we are crazy! 
Thanks to Donna Williams for coming out!...this picture of Shelly & I is her's! 
You must go to her blog Funky Junk Interiors to see how she"captured" the day.
The Vendors where amazing..I did a bit of shopping! ... more of that to come!...go to Fieldstone Vintage Market to see the list!

Styled Weddings BC

Last Fall I was part of a "Styled" wedding shoot. 
Mikaela Ruth Photography asked me to 
supply & style ( I had no idea what I was doing!)
 for a photo shoot that was a combined on...
From the Magazine Weddings In BC 

by Mikaela Ruth Photography
"It’s been a goal of mine to connect with other local wedding vendors, and also gain further wedding photo experience. Last fall everything came together to reach and work toward these goals. And in the process, have a fabulous time doing so, working with A LOT of talent, found in some amazing women!
It started with an idea and one by one, the pieces that made our shoot successful materialized. First of all, I was SO thrilled to have  Colleen Sawatsky of Vintage Home come on board with her designer touches and eye for fabulousness. She was able to pull my ideas that were dancing around in my head and make them come to life.
A styled wedding shoot wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats…Whitney Barkman, my sister and student at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, whipped up these pretty concoctions. On the menu? Macaroons with raspberry ganache, and chocolate cupcakes and chocolate layer cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. Whitney has also started making specialty cakes and desserts for parties and events.
I was also lucky enough to get to work with Kari of Confetti Floral. Ohhh does she ever put together the most stunningly unique flower arrangements! It was so fun planning with Kari and Colleen, but honestly, I pretty much just sat there and took in their back and forth on colours, flower names and designer terms that were foreign to me. But it all sounded really good and sure enough, what they provided was nothing short of eye candy delightfulness. Kari puts so much heart and passion into her work. I’ve already told her that she’ll be doing my flowers one day! 

For more of this story go to 
Props furniture & dishes etc are from  Vintage Home.
It was such a great experience! The bride & groom smiled threw the cold. 
Our furniture & accessories tried to hold their own against the glow of the couple (they really are married) & the wonderful old barn!
It was a great team effort and Mikaela captured it beautifully!

p.s. fast forward almost a year and I am getting ready for
Fieldstone Vintage Market!  This Saturday September 24th!
