The French Flea Market Held at The Horton’s in Tipton Indiana is a Vintage,fabric, furniture themed outdoor fair. There are make&takes, demonstrations, food and inspiration at every turn.
Peggy and I headed (ran) to the first make and take….
and to stock up on all of her lovely Hand dyed ribbons for the year!
I caught a couple of repeating trends….
First… burplap… is everywhere, but this hand stitched squared off edging is sort of coming on strong
I want to make the burlap foot stool. My Sister saved coffee and rice burlap bags for me for a birthday gift and I was so happy to find an idea that I could use them! I also love the pillow as a stadium cushion for soccer season! I have to learn the stitch that is used to make the edging, so any help would be appreciated and pasted along!
Ruffles were everywhere and on every and anything…
so I was in total style… and I wore my boots too 🙂
If you could ruffle the medium, it was ruffled.. from plastic and paper to burlap and metal!
Now the above ruffled table has on it a product that is new (to me) in the world of painting..
Annie Sloan Chalk paint.
I have been out of town for the past two weeks with my Parents. I had a wonderful visit and had teh opportunity to learn new things, but when you come home the work just seems to hit you in the face, so I’ll blog more on all the wonderful projects, events and inspiration in the next couple days!
