Inspired by displays and vignettes seen in Warrenton,
I headed down to the booth today to play.
I've said it before, but it bears pics to enlarge!

Take a few willow branches...

Pages from an old book take the place of leaves...

Just branching out and trying something different!

Unrelated to that, have you shopgirls and booth owners
ever purchased something intended for the store,
only to fall in love with it yourself? (raising my hand!)

Meet the latest object of my affection...

Oh yeah...I can hear ya swooning from here.

I couldn't bear to take it to the booth, can ya blame me?

Have a great night and a terrific week!

Linking with Cindy at My Romantic Home

FABULOUS cupboard! I would keep that baby too! I have, more than once, totally regretted selling something! If you love it, hold onto it!!

Glad you found some curly willow!!

My Grama's Soul said...

The Flying Bee said...

ummm....did I tell you how many of the things that I bought did NOT make it to my booth? LOL!

Love the cabinet!


Brynwood Needleworks said...

You're so right. I would have moved it into Brynwood, too. Great score, girlfriend!

Shelly said...

Anne! Love love love the cabinet! I am SO jealous of all you gals that made it down there for the show! I AM coming next year,,,,,,,so look out for the "Lone Washingtonian"-the State that is.....NOT DC!

Thanks for your lovely comments on my graphics pillows! You are a dear! SO nice to find YOU and your blog!!!


Linda said...

It is so cute I would not be able to part with it. Love how your booth looks! Great job.

summersundays-jw said...

That's the really great thing about being in this business -- you can adopt it for awhile (until you find something you love even more).

vintagesusie & wings said...

Of course I buy things for the shop & somehow...I'm not sure how {maybe there are little antique shop elves that take a piece to where it REALLY belongs} they find there way to my house! Your booth looks awesome & your new cabinet is amazing.
Guess what??? I'm planning on going to Warrenton & Round Top for the 1st time from sunny CA in September with Miss Diane Cook of rosa & josie's fame!!!! Do you see my smile, it's really big! I'm soooo excited!!
Smiles friend,

Libbie said...

Anne! WHo would think of throwing pages onto a branch! Genius! It does sound funny tyhough doesn't it :) Oh what crazy women we all are :)

Hey ~ I need you address to send you Annie...I mean the bowls & journals...YOU WON!!! But don't be surprised if the box is heavy & a messy little boy jumps out :)

Would you mind emailig it to me?

Thanks Anne!!!

Doni said...

Oh I'm a fan of that cabinet! Love the white and of course it was 'meant to be' yours! Great pictures of your shop your whites!

Libbie said...

Actually that is my old email address...what was I thinking?

Debra@Common Ground said...

Great job with the curly willow, love the book pages! Your cabinet is a great "keeper", love all your white goodies inside!

TheSmithHotel said...

Too funny! I am having my hubby paint a 6-drawer dresser. I picked it up for my booth but for now I am going to use it in the kitchen next to my desk to organize myself! When we have room at the booth I "plan" on moving it in to sell but I really needed something to contain the mess at home! We shall see if it every makes it out of the house! Shhhh don't tell Mr. Smith!

The family and I went for a walk tonight to get some manzanita branches so I can use in the booth. I bought a cool looking urn at a garage sale this weekend that I want to use as a display! I was going to paint the branches white too! I never thought of hanging book pages! I was planning on hanging up men's collars and cuffs(saw that idea somewhere too)!

Thanks for sharing,

Love that cabinet! said...

Oh yeah baby, that will look sweet in your little farmhouse! Be on the lookout for something from me soon. Trying to get my sweet students some info!! Lisa

raggygirlvintage said...

Gorgeous hutch! If you make your booth any nicer you're going to want to move in there!!

junkdreams said...

Hi Anne,
I love that idea with the branches!!!! Your treasures are gorgeous as always!

Tallulah's Antique Closet said...

TinyBear said...

Linda said...

I love the cupboard, Anne! I call it "the perks of the job"~ we get first choice of everything!

The Cottage said...

Great cabinet Anne !!
Thanks for visiting my blog and to answer your question on what kind of branches I used for my hankie tree, I used birch that I sprayed lightly with off white spray paint.

Love your page tree. I may have to try that one next !!


Marlene said...

OMG pea green with envy for that hutch!!! I love the color and size of it! Do i ever buy something for my shop, but can't part with it???? hummmmmm lets look in my garage and see...hummmm.. yep just about everything there...I am sure its a disorder on my part...but I can totally understand you keeping this piece!

Dorthe said...

Hi Anne,
Love the idea with the willow,with old papers on,---and your cupboard is wonderfull, and not something to find just every day, --you lucky girl.And you displayed the most sweet, and lovely items,inside.

Theresa said...

Love your creation, Anne! You are so talented and NO, I don't blame you for keeping that beauty. OH MY GOODNESS, gorgeous! Have a fun day my friend!

CountryBlessings@Lakewood said...

It's okay to keep are just adding to the the story of the piece.
Country Blessings,

Shirley said...

Your willows with old pages are adorable. Your cabinet reminds me of the one my parents had. My brother still has it and my sister-in-law keeps her collection of teapots and cups in it. I love looking at yours. Have a great week.

Diane said...

I'd keep that too! And I like the "leaves" idea! Hmmm....I'm seeing other things possibly displayed on those branches too! Branches hung horizontally even! I think you're onto something!


A Cottage Muse said...

Booth and Home envy from one post!! Have a fabulous day!!

Zuzu said...

Shopgirls and booth owners became shopgirls and booth owners to keep goodieA at home until goodieB replaces goodieA, and then goodieA can go to the shop or booth to be sold so goodieC can be purchased... It's the new math. Brilliant. :)

Love the willow tree display.

donna...@d.reyne's said...

HI Anne!
I love the cabinet! It would be great in my new bathroom....if ya ever get tired of know where to find me!
It looks like the wheels are turning with great creative thoughts!
Keep it up...your space looks wonderful!
Have a wonderful day,

red.neck chic said...

This question I refuse to answer. ROFLMBO!!! My house is full... that's all I have to say.

I LIKE LIKE LIKE the way you branch out!!!

;-) xoxo

David said...

I don't blame you for not selling the cupboard! It's fabulous!

Sherry said...

The cupboard is wonderful and I can see why you had to keep it. Your booth is so creative and I can see that you enjoy what you do, and you do it well.

Found Around said...

Hi Anne! Great seeing you Sunday! We are headed over to the estate sale to load up my remaining room of mystery. I love the branches, and the cabinet. My favorite thing is the house. It is a dream. I'm not familiar with prices in that area, but I'm sure they are pretty steep compared to my area. I'll send photos as soon as I get things sorted out. Soon...Susan

Beatnheart said...

Keep it, enjoy it, move it on...keep the cycle going..isn't junking fun and so good for the enviroment...I like your tree idea..very clever indeed and a real eye catcher in your space.

Vintage Junky said...

you keep her at home, safe and sound!


Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

No, I can't blame you for keeping that lovely cupboard!
Have a great day!

winnibriggs said...

Great decorating idea! And that cupboard... yes you did right to keep it. The customers would have been fighting over it anyway.

Allison Shops said...

The cupboard looks right at home. I would have kept it too!


clustres said...

Pretty cupboard! Yes, I want to keep stuff all the time! Pam

Cindy Geilmann said...

Anne, now that's what I call, "out of the box".

Love it!


Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Great cabinet and I would be tempted to keep it myself. I buy things all the time for my shop and then decide I can't part with it. I made a deal with Hubby...for everything that stays I will take something from our home to the shop. I live with something for a few months and then decide if I really love it.

Faded Charm said...

Loving this idea with the brances and leaves. And I don't blame you one bit for keeping such a beauty. These guys are getting harder and harder to find so you might as well hang on to it.

Enjoy the rest ofyour week.


Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

Hi Anne! I'd have a hard time letting go og that cabinet too, especially now that it looks so pretty all full of your special goodies! Love the pages on the branches, very cool. Happy WW, Theresa

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

What a charming cupboard! No wonder you wanted to keep it! ...and your booth looks delightful!

Gail said...

I have had many treasures I can't part with and yours is so great. Your cabinet is charming and a place that you can display your treasures. Great find.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Hey Girlie, glad you joined the party, I really love those branches!
love ya, talk soon.

Hootin' Anni said...

For me...there is a real romantic touch to it all.

I've been a domestic goddess this week ...making new SOUTHWEST CURTAIN TIE-BACKS Stop by for a visit and viewing if you can find time! Have a great weekend.
