The Neighborhood Flea

I wanted to give you all a taste of what the Neighborhood Flea is in Pittsburgh.

Neighborhood Flea is a vibrant, pop up urban marketplace offering an inspired shopping experience in Pittsburgh's Strip District. The Neighborhood Flea celebrates all that is unique to Pittsburgh including the shoppers themselves and sellers who are our neighbors: a maker/ small business owner/ collector/ entrepreneur/ service provider/ food truck/ artisan food creator. This market provides the opportunity for Pittsburghers to enjoy the thrill of the hunt, discovering hidden gems from across the region. Enjoy specialty coffee roasts, vintage clothing, repurposed wood fashioned into new furniture, organic skin care products, and more. 
We'll be set up at 23rd and Penn in Pittsburgh's Strip District from 9 am - 2 pm on September 28th.  Pre-game with us as we'll have delicious food trucks, local antique treasures, clothing for men and women, handmade sellers and more! 

Here are some photos from last month, some of my booth, some closeups of some items I made for the Flea and some just of the Flea! Enjoy!







So that was my booth and below are some wood caddies I made with vintage insulators and Jello molds. 
The mini hairpin legs? 
Copper pipe hangers!


I found this gorgeous light ceiling light cover that I made into a bird feeder.

And here are some nesting tables that got updated with some modern fabric.
This little sewing chair got a new life with some updated fabric as well….

Fabric can transform a piece can't it?????

Now here are some fun pics of the Flea!







I hope you are having an excellent day so far and I'll be showing you the nesting tables and the sewing chair befores in a day or two to give you an idea about how much better they are now!

BHG Holiday Craft Magazine Feature

I know I teased you with this yesterday…...
so now I will show you the inside!!
I was honored to have my drop cloth flower swag included in the Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts magazine 2014!
They contacted me last November to see if I would let them include my swag in their magazine for this years edition…..ummmmmm, HOLY CRAP! 
After my husband revived me, I had to read the email again. Of course I said yes and then waited. I stopped holding my breath in May when they sent me the contract but then held my breath again. I have been contacted twice before and had things fall through so I figured when I see the magazine then I'll not only share the news, but dance with glee.
Well, the magazine came in a plain white envelope with Media in large letters on the return address. It was a busy day so I only glanced quickly and almost through it out with the rest of the junk mail!!!!!
I realized it was fairly heavy so I had better take a quick lookey loo…

OK, I started crying when I pulled it out…I'm a wuss and I don't care. It felt incredible to see my name and my idea in print.
And it felt even more incredible when I showed it to my husband and he got this big grin on his face. Even after all these years together, it means the world to me that he was impressed and happy for me.

I will tell you that this issue has an incredible abundance of adorable and classy ideas for holiday decor so please go get it and get your craft on. 

Thank you again BHG for this crazy gift!!
