So busy this week there has been no time for new post... I'm back with some fresh pictures Vintage Village, The Shack Out Back & more Wedding Showers

The busiest week ever....
well, almost.
Not a single second for a post ~ yes, I'm fine
just chasing my tail to get everything done.
I've missed sharing... missed catching up with all of you...
Let's see... Sunday, May 17 another Wedding Shower, here in our clubhouse~ Pampered Chef, we had a blast. Monday,Tuesday ~ packed with village work.
Wednesday ~ moving Clayton home since his semester ended... extra dorm house stuff
to the village. Thursday, Friday...more village work, of course that was fun.
But when you add all those things to the everyday items ~ it leaves very little
time to sleep or any extra free time.
Today... Catch up on all those things I adore ~ even this little blog.

I have had some new pictures from Vintage Village all week to share.
Will get the rest on soon ~ as you have probably realized by now we sell tons
at the village so treasures change daily. Hope that many of these items are
still available for purchase.

A stroll around the downstairs. I must say, the coziest shop in our area.
Black toile offerings, roosters, canisters, lamps, tables & chairs.
Just to name a few.

Vintage wares are amongst our favorites but we do add some
new items that are packed with charm.
China, vintage transfer ware, vintage prints & pictures, chandeliers too.

Honored to have Pam back ~ the interior seamstress that knows her fabrics.
All her offering at the village ~ $7 per yard or less. With all those gadgets needed
for drapery's & such. One of my favorite things to enjoy at home.... our bedroom adorned by items that Pam created for us. Comforter, Dust Ruffle, Pillows & more pillows.

A favorite on this stroll. My Vintage Heart has the cutest pink vintage children's piece.
Just right shabby & the added chic. Sure wish I had a place for this treasure.

The Shack out Back...
amazed by how well this shack looks. It's better than ever.
The Shack Pack does a beautiful job
packing their shop with treasures old & new.
Always a treat to visit with them.
They have done a bit of work to their cute blog too
(with a little help from a "hag")...
make sure you visit there often.
More chances to see all that is going on in the piece of asphalt we all share.

What a darling patio set ~ great colors & comfortable too.
Easy to see why this charming set sold so fast.
Until it goes to its new home... we will enjoy some time on the shack patio admiring
all the outside offerings.

Inside... precious vignettes of matching colors & schemes.
Have you been for a visit.
Our shops do have offerings that you will fall in love with.

Village Gardens are growing. Look how pretty.
With all the rain we have had recently our greens are loving being in Hag Lane.
Look Flower Wower... you'll be so proud.
This week for sure...weeding & fertilizing are on my list. You know we have
organic veggies growing too. Little Sqaush, Peppers, Tomatoes & Lettuce. Can't
wait for a fresh feast for dinner from the Village Shack Veggie Garden.

Our toad abode awaits... those frogs that wish to take up residency.
In the cool old clay pots ~ complete with a bit of moss and their abode
includes lovely pink impatience & fern that grows more each day.

Another Wedding Shower... Pampered Chef. What Fun.

Great Food, Great Company & Great gifts for Lindsey & Steven.
They will enjoy using the products Pampered Chef has to offer.
Lindsey made our BBQ Sauce for a delicious pork tenderloin.
And she wedged a pineapple ~ with their cool new product that does all the work
for you. Family, Friends, Bridesmaids & Wedding Attendants were all here for a
Sunday afternoon packed with fun.

Lindsey got her first apron... signed by our Shower Guest.
Thank You Kim (a village dealer & pampered chef director) for putting on a great shower.

I love being busy... but this week, a bit busier than even I like.
Vintage Village, The Shack out Back, Gardens that need care, Wedding Showers,
moving Clayton home (until he ships to Basic Training). Plus, my usual joys....
a husband to chat with, a pond to take care of (you'll see that soon), a precious little white guy that loves attention. A condo to pretend to clean up a bit in, laundry, meals, season finales to enjoy. Weeks like this leave little time to blog (sadly...).

I'll be back in the groove this week.
I've missed my time away from this little blog. I've missed my cherished free time.

A Wife, Mother, Shop Owner sometimes a hectic, busy job.
So glad that I have each of these to enjoy... even in my busiest weeks.

~one vintage hag

one last thing... Happiest of Birthdays today ~ Shirley (Etc from the village)
Hope that your day is packed with surprise & all your wishes come true in the year ahead.
