Haven conference

1. Exhausting.

2. A break-neck, action-packed pace of INFORMATION and FUN.

3. A place of kinship with like-minded people.

It’s all true—and I can’t wait to

do it again!

traveling to HAVEN*Unexpected company kept me from getting to sleep till past midnight, and the hill-billy neighbor woke me at 3:07am yelling at their dog under my bedroom window.  I’m thinking strongly about some retribution.  :  /

I was on the road just past 4am—missing multiple big city traffic jams, YaY!  A good day of travel –even tired– and nice to watch the falling gas prices heading south.

my respite in Murfreesboro--I stopped in Murfreesboro like usual to hit a favorite Antique Mall, but got off at the wrong exit and landed in a different store.  Uh~must have been meant-to-be….look what I found!

A trophy urn-styled silver ice bucket!

I hit rain on and off throughout the day, but, wOw!–did it pound down on us in the Smokey Mountains.  I reached the hotel by 8 and was just tired enough to call it a night.  old-huh?

Thursday morning I headed down to the ballroom to offer help putting the swag bags together and get to meet up with some of the ladies—omg did we score some incredible things!  At noon’ish I left to go shopping play at one of my favorite stores– A Classy Flea!

A Classy Flea!I, of course, bought more silver.

“You can’t have it all!” doesn’t seem to apply to moi!

Haven conference--There was a cocktail party the first night of the conference -with a very talented balladeer singing for us ME!

First thing Friday morning I headed downstairs to meet Mike Holmes!

meeting Mike Holmes at Haven!

Day 1 of the conference I focused so heavily on the sessions I didn’t get around to meeting any of the fabulous sponsors sO I changed gears on day 2!

Found these little props in a GoodWill…

…don’t they just look like best friends?!

Found the “tole” sconce at A Classy Flea, but the venetian sconces were found in a church parking lot sale!

Freddy & Petunia

makeover!  Watch for it!

I also found 4 great cabriole legs and made good connections for other unique parts to build with!

 

 

 

 

 

And finally back in the Chicago area at the Kane County flea market over this past weekend.  I was there to help my bf sell her crazy overflow of vintage furniture, accessories, mirrors/frames, garden/iron, and so on and so on and so on and so on and so on…!!!

As you can see, I got distracted!  Maybe I wasn’t good help….

*but can you ever really have too many trophy/loving cups/silver-?

Truly a sickness.

No vaccine.

I also found another mini tea set for some little girl, and a pair of tiny corbels for a future little cabinet, and YES, another vintage frame!

The silverware pictured at the very top adds to my collection.  I love all the hotel cutlery for sale, just not the price tag.  So I’m having the fun of collecting and creating my own version!
