The Vintage House

Hello to our Friends of a Feather ~

We are spending most of our time these days creating new ways to use our sweet little vintage house!  As most of you know, my mom Marilyn lived in this house for 18 years.  She decided about a year ago that she didn't want to live alone any more.  So, my dear, sweet husband and I had her move into where my art studio once was in our own vintage home on 83rd Street.

Since then, she and I have named her sweet little place The Vintage House and have developed it into a place to share with others ~ creating a unique little venue for private events and small gatherings, as well as creating our own unique themed events that we host ourselves.

and what events we have planned in the near future.

My dear Friend of a Feather, Cheryl Hocker, owns Now and Then...a great little shop in old downtown Overland Park.  She has just reopened the back of her store to accommodate more incredible treasures that crosses her threshold!  

She is currently having a Red Tag Sale!
The items shown in these photos are just a sampling of her inventory of goodies...
If you see something that interests you, you'd better shop early!

This double adirondak seat would look fabulous in any garden setting.

I love this old milk can...what fun graphics!

This piece is incredible...and you should see it even if you don't need a piece like this...
It has several little porcelain drawers with German words describing what goes in them.
Cheryl has the translations for anyone who is interested in this unique piece.

There are actually four pieces to this sweet children's wicker furniture set...
my grandkids would love to relax here for at least a minute or two...  
This antique iron crib makes a beautiful addition to any sunporch as a day bed or settee'.
You can never go wrong adding a lovely wicker piece to your decor.
I love these beautifully painted matching sweet for a little girl's room.

Be sure to tell Cheryl that I sent you!!!  
After shopping at her store...there are several great places in downtown Overland Park to grab lunch...or maybe a piece of pie at the Upper Crust!

The Potting Shed...Open One More Weekend!

A friend of mine, Laurie, and her husband are sharing their passion for gardening, by opening a
darling little shop at their home that is only open weekends through May...this coming Memorial
weekend is the last weekend to experience this inspiring place named "The Potting Shed."
The surroundings of their home are breathtaking!  This is a HAVE to stop by...
6741 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, Kansas - 10 to 5 - Friday and Saturday.
She sells beautiful, established flowers in unique containers.
She sells flowers individually as well, along with a wonderful, eclectic mix of
outdoor furniture and other unique pieces to enhance your outdoor and/or porch living...

This lovely, shabby sectioned box is a perfect example of the creative flower boxes
that she sells for you to showcase your beautiful blooms!

I LOVE this old pail used as a flower pot!

It is evident that Laurie and her husband love to create beautiful spaces in their yard,
as you will witness as you pull into this amazing little sanctuary!

The side porch of "The Potting Shed"is full of fun things for you to purchase! 
The shop inside has fantastic little pieces i.e. garden furniture, little potting tables,
flower boxes,  and other lovelies that you will want for your own. 

This is a view of the backyard from the door of the shop...the park-like setting
is breathtaking...see the rest of the photos below that will give you a taste!
One word describes this amazing place...
I N C R E D I B L E!!

The porch is where I'd want to be...ALL the time...
Laurie's very talented husband built the screened-in porch on top of the already existing large deck.

LOVE this unique light fixture!
Laurie's decor is simple, but very rich in character...using pieces that she LOVES...

I am going to have to paint my bushel basket...LOVE the color!

If you live in the area, you SHOULD NOT miss this incredible place!!!
