Bittersweet June Day...

A Bittersweet Day ~ The Fifth of June

6 years ago today my Dad passed away after spending the last 16 days of his
sweet life in the hospital ~ it was a tragic time and seems like only yesterday.
How can it be 6 years have passed.... Living life to it's fullest was something he
made a priority as you can tell from the picture above. Riding the motorcycle for
his Grandchildren ~ a good ole laugh at Lindsey's birthday party at Chuck E Cheese
many years ago.
Life isn't measured by the breaths you take ~
instead by those moments that take your breath away.

So, some much needed time at the Village for me. Some of you know that my Mom
recently spent 17 days hospitalized and ultimately underwent quad bypass surgery ~ 7 different hospital rooms in two different hospitals but is home on the mend and doing great so it was a pleasure for me to get some time to create today.

A new spot ~ full of new idea's, vintage treasures from my favorite honey spots
that just arrived Friday, some fresh posies & herbs added. The best part an early
morning chandelier sale to a regular customer that has a shop in Douglas, Georgia. Yay!

Time to spare taking a few snapshots of other vintage "pretties"
that you know won't last long. But for today, they are ripe for
the picking... come shop~! Is this a fabulous Vintage Dress or what...
perfect with the handmade vintage jeweled hat. Perfect for a summer wedding~!

A fabulous set of Cabbage Majolica plates & salad bowls would have
Peter Rabbit set for a feast ~ they sure would be pretty to dress up your
china cabinet this summer.

Red & White transfer ware is amongst my personal favorite ~ this pitcher is overflowing with vintage charm.

I have a fondness for Old Needlepoint ~ this stool slip covered with a great needlepoint cover in brown with roses is shabby at it's best.

Vintage Doll furniture always has a way of reminding us of our childhood's.

Pretty Black & White Vintage Children's Photo's with an adorable lamp & mirror as the base.

A Needlepoint chair cushion ~ do you have a chair it would fit?

Shabby Vintage Shelf in pink to showcase a vintage rose yard long in a great vintage frame.

Oh, so shabby 3 piece porch set. Table & 2 chairs ~ even a magazine to read while
enjoying your morning coffee.

Fabulous vintage blue cupboard with old glass knobs.

Old ladders are so nice for the screen porch ~ they are great for potted herbs or posies.
Cement pieces always sell fast. I think everyone likes to have a few for outside decor.

The best Red & White China Cabinet I've seen in a while ~ small but perfect.
We'll look forward to seeing you at Vintage Village as much as I've missed being
able to blog... now, that's a ton.
Make plans now for a Summer Junkin' Day.
Until then...♥, one vintage hag


  1. Your dad was a "one of a kind" soul. I know you miss him every day but he is always around you. Butch was fun and welcoming and always "kidding and joking" around. Love the new things in the shop, your pictures are great. Sea Witch

  2. That was my Vintage Village coworking buddy. He always had me on my TOES and made us laugh. Time does go fast. It has been 20 years since Haley and 11 for my Dad. Thank GOD for wonderful memories.

  3. I remeber all the fun times working with your Dad. He always had me on my toes. It's been 20 years since Haley and 11 for my Dad. Thank God for memories.
