A Joyful Heart

I was recently given the opportunity to submit a Make It article for Romantic Homes and the editors at the magazine approved it and gave me a byline!  I have been subscribing to RH since its inception so this was a real honor for me.
                                  Meryl, one of the editors of RH, and me showing off the February issue.
I visited the Romantic Homes offices for a photo shoot and to pick up a magazine!  What a wonderful way to spend the morning.

My Favorite Vintage Things....

I love linens, all kinds.  I have collections of linens, books on linens, cut out magazine pictures of linens.  I sell linens but there are just some I can't bear to let go.  The stack above were ready to be put in my vintage trunk and they looked so pretty I just had to take a snapshot.
 The other thing I love is embroidery and toile.  I combined the two by embroidering this old pattern and bordering it with red toile fabric.
                   I found this mirror at a flea market.  I'm still debating whether to paint it or not.

The Vintage Marketplace in December

The Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow is one of the best places to find something you love.  There are so many talented artists and beautiful booths the hardest part is deciding what treasure you will take home.
               Above is the pink area, the table is topped with a tree filled with vintage ornaments.
             Just a few of Jenelle Van de Mortel's beautiful handpainted vintage ornaments.
