Vintage and New

Hi Bloggerettes!  Do you remember those crazy tropical, abstract, patterned pillows that used to be on Grandma's sofa, or the drapes on her windows?
It's called barkcloth.  It's a cotton fabric, sometimes with rayon and linen,with a special weave that gives it a nubby texture reminiscent of tree bark.  It's the epitomy of vintage and I now have one!!!  Dianne scored this one, (along with a few more) at an auction.  So naturally, I just had to have it.  Ooh, I love it, it's so 1930's retro.

Another great find is this.....a concrete garden lady...

I got her from another booth owner who said her neighbor had put it outside for trash pickup!!!! Why???


Peggie and I found the most wonderful "Shabby Chic" shop today and I bought this really cute memo board.  It's made with wallpaper and chicken wire and has cute painted clothespins for clips.
I love it!

And, this wonderful mercury glass container....

I want to thank all of you for the input on this little desk/vanity.
A few of you booth owners suggested to try it in my booth and
if it didn't sell, then consider repainting it.  I'm giving it a try before pulling out the paint brush again, for the sake of saving time and energy.
I kinda like her better when paired with the little shabby vanity stool.
You all had the greatest idea and it's good to know that when I asked for your help, you are always ready to rescue!  You're the best!



Be sure and stop by because Debra's and Linda's.  They have some great stuff to show us.

~~hugs~~

Sissie, I think the desk looks great paired up the the cute little bench. I bet it sells right away. Good job.
Do you have a truck to haul all this "stuff" around?
Oh, I love the pillow. I remember my grandmother have barkcloth pillows and at one time I think she had it on a couch.

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

I love everything in your post today. Gorgeous pillow and I would have love to have seen that statue near a garbage can...I would have garbage picked it so fast!! I am into looking for things for outside right now...must be because Spring is coming. I have daffodils blooming. That makes me very happy!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Love your pillow, what a cute memo board! Glad you at least gave the desk a chance before painting!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Good idea, Sissie, to put it in the booth and see if she sells as is. You found some wonderful items. I can't believe someone was throwing that statue out either ~ it looks like it's in great condition!

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

What a great idea for the bulletin board. And how in the world could someone throw away the statue??!! The pillow has gorgeous colors! I kinda collect bark cloth for my future beach house. Ha! Like that's gonna happen. I do pull it out and look at it every now and then, though.

I'm having a give-away on the blog this month. Hop on over and get your name in the pot!

Theresa said...

THE TRASH???????? are they crazy? She is gorgeous! I love your barkcloth pillow too, I have some barkcloth that I have been meaning to make pillows or maybe bags out of but I am so nervous to cut it! You have found some really wonderful treasures! xoxo

Have a wonderful weekend!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

I think that was a great ideal to put it in your booth and see if it sells like it is first, I think it looks wonderful with the little bench, and I can't believe that someone was going to throw that beautiful statue away, but it was a good thing for you that they did. I love your pillow too, it's gorgeous... the memo board and the mercury glass also great finds, you really loaded up on the treasures this week my friend!
hugs~~~ Daphne

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Sissie the barkcloth pattern is reminiscent of Rachel Ashwell's logo with the pink feather plumes!! I adore that pillow girl! What color is the background? grey or blue or both?? You are the smart one to put the desk in the shop with an enchanting leopard bench~the perfect style job! It looks great.

Hi Sissie,
Wow! Love the garden lady! Can you imagine anyone throwing her out! What a find! You've found yourself some incredible girly stuff; fabulous! And Congrats on getting your second booth ready too!

Blessings,

Olivia said...

Sissie as always everything over here is just fabulous! Your garden lady is oooohhhh la la! Ok, so here it goes...you are getting another booth? I have two already but have been offered a spot up front with a window...it is double the rent so i am really nervous, but it is a large booth with a window and tons of potential. Anyhoo, thought I would bounce it off of you. I adore that vintage pillow too! Yum Yum!! Can't wait to see your booth.
Hugs,
Olivia

Ginger said...

You always find the best treasures. That statue is to die for, how could someone throw it away? The barkcloth pillow is great, I remember my Mom having curtains like that. Im sure she threw them away years ago, "those old things!" Beautiful post as always.
