Chicks Along The Canal

I am a part of a group of dynamic and creative women who have decided to put together a farm chick like show in upstate New York. We have antique shows in our area, but wanted to create a spectacular show that would "showcase" the talents of local women.

Every year, the city of Little Falls has their Canal Days filled with a variety of activities that include a farmers market, live music, free food, games, and contests. We have been invited to hold ourshow during this time.

Women vendors will showcase their creative talents, to include many items for sale: antiques, homemade goodies, jewelry, painted furniture, whimsical art, shabby chic decor, vintage linens, wonderful junk, handmade treasures, apron fashions, candles and more!

All this on the front lawn of the old mills, surrounded by beautiful gardens, flowing water and live music! I can't wait...kelly

Summer Love

I have always loved the beach, but living in the middle of New York State, I don't get there very often. So to bring a little beach to my house, I love to add starfish and shells to my summer displays.

I love Spring and Summer, new growth, birth and a time for renewed hope. During these seasons, I love to do something different to my home to try and make it more of a sanctuary for myself and my family. I change displays and add lots of hydrangeas, silverplate, ironstone and beach elements.

Come visit Us!

I currently sell my cottage collectibles, vintage treasures and Hand Painted home decor at The Westmoreland Antique Center and The Mustard Seed at Stonemill. The pics below are of my spot at The Westmoreland Antique Center. (http://www.westmorelandantiquecenter.com/)

This desk/vanity started out as a boring piece, but I painted it up and it looks Great! The blue dresser behind it has 3 drawers and old glass handles. It was painted this blue when I found it.

I hand painted daises and lilacs on this pretty blue bed tray.

I love vintage baby items...I painted the roses on the little shoes. Darling!

I sell Sweet Grass Farm lotions and soaps and house hold cleaners at my shops...Lemon Verbena, White Lilac, Herb Blossom and Lavender. If you have never tried them you must...they are all natural and smell wonderful!
Have a safe and wonderful weekend. Blessings, Kelly

Spring is really Here!

I found this lovely white flat basket at the Westmoreland Antique Center, and I knew I had to paint on it! I am very pleased with the results. I love Lilacs, I think they are my all time favorite. Their scent is divine!

Here, I took an old samsonite suitcase (love the color) and painted vibrant roses on it! I love painting my gardens on old, found items.

On a recent trip to Canal Place in Little Falls, New York, I was awestruck by the gorgeous gardens surrounding the old mill shops. The colors of nature are so vibrant...I wish I could grow flowers like these. Unfortunately, I have a very brown thumb! So, I'll just use my paints to create my beautiful gardens.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Blessed evening! Kelly

Painting Again!

My paints are out once again and I am ready to paint for the new year. I love spring flowers and am looking forward to adding tulips, daffodils, geraniums and lilacs to my "painted" garden.

I have also settled into my new routine at The Westmoreland Antique Center, where I work 2 days a week. I will be adding some pictures of my booth soon!

Have a wonderful, safe weekend. Blessings, Kelly
