Is It Really Spring Y'all?

Okay y'all, I thought today was April 15 and tax day, but with freezing temps forecast for tonight, maybe I was just dreaming. Here in the deep south, we start planting our flowers and veggies by now, because freezing temps are way gone, but not this year! I am sooooo glad that I have not already planted mine. In years past, I always plant in late March, but this year, I have been super busy with shop things, so I am late getting them in the ground. I guess, being late, sometimes is a good thing. Sunday, I purchased 30 plants and thank goodness, I decided to wait until later this week, to get them planted. To be safe, these beauties will be coming inside my warm house tonight. Please cold weather, GO AWAY!!!!!
                                                       Blessings,
                                                          Linda





 


 
                                  I will be sure to share pictures after all
                                  these beauties are added to window boxes,
                                  urns, wall planters and flower pots...so

Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.208

Hope you all had a fun weekend. Mine was spent having a two day garage sale (it feels so good to rid of all that stuff). Sunday, I headed over to the flea market to get all my bedding plants, thought I was cutting back this year, but I came home with 30 plants! Looks like I will be planting all week, but I LOVE it!!!! A table sold at the shop on Saturday, so Mr.CC had to build me another today. I tell ya, that guy is a keeper! Now, I need to paint it asap, so we can deliver it to the shop on Tuesday. Okay y'all, let's see what ya been up too.

Shop Talk with Faded Charm

 I wanted to do a regular series on my blog, something unique that hasn't been done before. I came up with an idea to feature small shops, that are located throughout the country. So, every Friday you can stop by and check out a new shop, and at the same time meet the owner. Today, we will be shopping with Kathleen at Faded Charm. If you don't already know Kathleen, then let me tell ya, you are in for a super duper treat, because this gal has it going on! After you finish wiping all the drool off your chin, because her stunning vignettes will cause you to drool like crazy,then be sure to leave a comment and let her know that you were here at SHOP TALK. I know that you will be itching to see more of FADED CHARM, so click here for her blog and here for her facebook page.

Hi, I'm Kathleen from http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/">Faded Charm and I'm pleased to be sharing over here on Linda's blog today for her new series "Shop Talk".

I've been buying, repurposing and selling old stuff at Shows for over 10 years now.  It has allowed me to persue my passion for junking yet I have been fortunate enough  to be available for my kids all these years.  I also love the fact that I can replace items in my own home when I come across something that is a better fit.


Most of my items come from Flea Markets, estate, garage or barn sales and I buy anything that has white chippy paint or a great patina.  You'll also find metal and industrial, garden related items along with collections for the home.  I love to think of unusual displays each Show I do and also add many items from nature.  The funnest part of doing these Shows is(besides the shopping, of coarse) coming up with different displays.

Last year was my first time selling at the https://www.facebook.com/thefarmchicks?fref=ts">Farm Chicks Show in Spokane, WA and it was so much fun!  My sales were great, the other vendors were so friendly and all the customers were serious about shopping.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to do it this year since my son is graduating High School at that time, but I hope to try it again in June of 2015.

I've had a booth for the past four years at https://www.facebook.com/JunkSalvation?fref=ts">Junk Salvation in Hilsboro, OR which is close to home and I always enjoy doing Linda and Dixie's show.

A couple years ago I tried having a space up in an Antique Mall and with everything in this business there are pros and cons, but I met some amazing people while there.  Two of which, Amy and Kris from https://www.facebook.com/FarmandFrills?fref=ts">Farm and Frills have asked me to be apart of their Show coming up in May which I'm very excited about.

My dream has always been to have my own store someday.  I'm hopeful that after my kids are all grown I can dedicate the time that  it takes to be a store owner, but for now doing a few Shows each year keeps me busy enough.

Thanks, Linda for having me here today.

Did Y'all Know?

Hey y'all, I didn't want anybody to miss my kitchen feature over at Marty's blog. Every week, she has a series called "Pulling It All Together" over at her place. The series is about how someone pulled a room together, to make it a special place in their home, and this week that room, is my kitchen. So, hop on over to Marty's to see how I pulled this room together, so that my family would have a casual and comfy place to hang out in. Okay, now y'all all know what I know, and thanks a bunch for coming by and visiting with me here at Coastal Charm.
                                              Blessings,
                                                 Linda

DIY Potting Bench

It's that time of year again, time to get your hands dirty ladies. What I mean about that is, it's potting season!! Oh, how I love when potting season rolls around and I can dig in some dirt. Sounds kinda silly huh? Oh well, this old gal, has always loved playing in some dirt, something that I have never outgrown. Now, everybody that loves planting, needs a really cute potting bench, don't ya think? With that being said, look what Mr.CC made last week. Oh yes, he made this darling potting bench. Then when he finished it, I got my paint brush out and went to work on it. After that, I just had to fussy it up a bit, so now let's see how she turned out.
                                                 Blessings,
                                                   Linda

Here she is!
Maybe we should name her...any
suggestions?

                        It's always fun adding a few vintage goodies,
                              to add charm to pieces like this one.

                      This old rake head was a must. Then I printed some
                      vintage seed packs and added them. You can also
                      print these seed packs, just head over to my friend
                      Angie's blog. Angie, always has so many cute free
                                printables at her place...just click here.
                        
                                  Old garden tools add a lot of charm too.


                                   You just gotta have a hook or two.

                           Just think, we will all start enjoying
                                 our beautiful flowers soon!

I can't wait!
 
Now, if I'm going to have any
pretty flowers around here this
year, I better get busy potting!
