We're headed back to the market!!

Good news! We just received our confirmation a couple weeks ago and we're so happy to share that we'll be back at the Paris Street Market in 2015.

And as if that wasn't enough, we're doing TWO shows this year!

That's right. Two times the fun. Two times the great finds. Two times the joy.

That also means we need to get our tails in gear.

Karli's garage is full (again) with our great pieces just waiting to be given some TLC and that special touch.

We hope you'll come out to see us Saturday June 6th and September 5th.

Now, please excuse us while we go work our tails off.

Happy spring!
Kandy and Karli

Kandy's Master Bedroom Finally Complete

It has been a long time coming......the final touches to our Master Bedroom. But viola... that last item has been "created," not found. My hang-up has been trying to find the perfect throw for the end of the bed. I wanted it to tie in with the wall paint color, the fabric bedskirt I had made, and the new carpet. 

I gave up on finding one to buy. I ended up purchasing a twin size sheet set at WalMart.  From the flat sheet I created a duvet cover by sewing the edges together lengthwise. One pillowcase came in the set, so I simply sewed up a matching one from the fitted sheet.  I have enough leftover sheet to create something else later. 

Here is a look at what it all looks like now:

The fabric was just perfect, a high-count sateen sheet set that is washable. I love this print:

The pillowcases go well with the lumbar pillow that Karli had given me:

I am quite happy with how it all turned out. You can view this long, drawn-out process by checking back on these posts.....

Sleeping well now,

Spring Touches of Green

I am trying to rush Spring. The official "First Day of Spring" has come, but that does not mean a great deal in the part of Colorado where we live. We have, however, had some really nice days, so I decided it was time to make the front door "Springy."

My green outdoor pillow came out to play. The black vase gets a touch of green with the addition of some "faux" fern, and I created a new greeting sign from an old window.  Instant Spring at our house.

Inside, the Eastlake Dresser gets a "real" green plant and a bunny. That is about as much time as I have for Spring decorating. 

Hurry up warm weather,
