Summer has officially been ushered in according to the June 21 calendar date, and here in the mountains of NC we are enjoying some temps that for most areas would be considered Spring-like….
But with the news of summer’s entry, I realize that Fall is quickly following on its heels and my head turns from airy ferns and colorful florals to the more vibrant colors of red, yellow and orange that will soon be turning our heads and minds to the holidays ahead.
SO, with a bit of Summer nostalgia still in the air, let’s get our minds in gear for my favorite happening coming up in August this year…..Vintage Market Days of Asheville! Mark your calendars for August 18, 19 and 20 and don’t wait to go on line to http://www.vintagemarketdays.com/market/asheville-metro/ and get your tickets! This year boasts an early buying event on Friday so get to the website soon and purchase not only your own ticket but one – or several – for friends!
This August’s theme at Vintage Market Days of Asheville will be Farmhouse, and I am taking us into the Fall and Winter seasons with Farmhouse decorations for your holiday home.
Let me whet your appetite just a tiny bit….
Just because Fall is on its way doesn’t mean you have to head inside! Dress up your yard with a fun metal yard bench. Can’t you just see it gathering up the allure of fallen leaves, rich and vibrant in their fanciful colors?
Metal stools often find their way into my yardscape, but sitting in a kitchen offers a wonderful perch for you while you visit with family and friends.
From enamel tables to the settings to adorn them, each day at Vintage Market Days will offer you different treats and surprises. The coolest part is that many of the items you find in my booth will delight your home after the holidays come to a close because of their versatility…
This mirror, for instance, can be dressed for the holiday with a fall spray across the top or a wintergreen wreath hung down into the middle of it. Use that imagination! And yes, I will have both swags of fall and winter persuasion at VMD!
From vintage bulb wreaths to vintage coffee mugs and table linens, I’m ready for you!
There will be lots of Farmhouse furniture pieces as well as other items to choose from. My style doesn’t lend itself to duplication of pieces or items, so you will definitely find that “one of a kind” item at Burlap & Lace!
So one more reminder to you….
I can’t wait to share this Farmhouse Vintage Home for the Holidays experience with you!
