Recently a friend asked me if I would like some homemade soap to try out. Of course! I love a good bar of soap, and homemade is great. Especially if it’s homemade that I didn’t have to make 😀 I’ve used up one bar of soap and am on my second and now I want to share with you what it is, where you can get some, and why you should!
The Old Arcana. It’s a restaurant in Arcanum, Ohio, and it adjoins the storefront I am now putting my vintage and handmade items in. I posted yesterday about my storefront – and totally forgot to add the location to that post! It’s Arcanum, Ohio peeps! Google will lead you right to it. Siri will not recognize the word Arcanum but your map on your phone will find it just fine if you type it in. Guess when Siri was recording they forgot to include some of the off-the-beaten-path towns 😀
I’m finally getting back to the blog to share the pics I took of some of the other vendors at The Summer Market. I’ve been being lazy – I just cannot get my energy back and my creativity flowing much. Hopefully soon.
I’ve been having requests for a slipcover tutorial. And I’m happy to tell you that it is in the works. Hopefully very soon. I happen to have aquired a couple really nice, vintage wingbacks for our home and they need to be slipcovered. My plan is to do the best I can getting photos of the whole process with the first one and do a video tutorial with the second. I’ve never worked with videos much so this will be a trial and error thing I’m sure! I’ll get going on those as soon as I decide what fabric I am using for the covers.
I haven’t disappeared completely I promise! I’ve been sleeping, cleaning my house, sleeping, keeping appointments, and sleeping some more. I’m starting to feel a bit caught up – and now I have to dive in and meet some deadlines. But I wanted to update you and let you know I’m still alive! If you follow me on Instagram you know I’m still here and you’ve seen some of what I brought home from the flea, what my workroom looks like, and a bit of my newly decorated ‘mantle’.
All the photos I’m sharing today are from my iPhone and are straight from it. No editing – I just didn’t have time. I am already falling behind on some deadlines so this had to be quick.
Here is our booth in The Vintage Marketplace at The Springfield Flea, Springfield, Ohio.
This weekend it’s all about the flea. The Vintage Marketplace sets up big tents at the Springfield flea in Springfield Ohio and rents out booth spaces inside them. It’s a huge undertaking to set up and run a show at a 3 day flea. I am set up with Stacy from Stacy Morgan Designs. She has all the great pieces that really make the booth a showplace and I added a few of my creations and vintage finds.
