I'm still here...

It has been a crazy couple of weeks  - weddings, markets, and getting the shop ready for fall!   Here are a few pictures of what I've been up to!

Kane county flea market...
I didn't get many pictures because Mark and I were swamped:)




A farm fresh wedding...
Lisa and Wayne live on a gorgeous farm which was the perfect spot for a rustic yet romantic wedding! 

Before

Here's Ann helping out - we worked ALL day getting ready for this event!


Willow branches and swags of burlap were tied to the perimeter of the tent which really made the tent feel private yet allowed the guests to see the beautiful scenery.


We decorated and hung four of these GIANT shades to provide the perfect amount of lighting for guests!


The entry was decorated with vintage elements but softened with lace and a chandelier.



Vintage ball jars containing flowers from the garden gave the centerpieces the rustic look Lisa was looking for yet the gilded peacocks and peacock feather added a bit of romance.


Some of the centerpiece were composed of twigs and paper elements!


Mark and I used this vintage gazebo for the ceremony, we decorated it with tulle, burlap, paper and a vintage chandelier.  The views were beautiful!!


The ceremony was set away from the reception tent and allowed views of the entire property.



These barn red vintage chairs were used outside for a lounge area.



3 french hens market....
Our 3 French Hens Market was such a fun time!! We had so many shoppers it was CRAZY!! 
We ended up having a total of 94 vendors with a great variety!




Bright and summery wedding...
Working with Julie was so fun and different - usually my customers want a tan and cream color pallette and tons of vintage items.  Julie wasn't looking for vintage she wanted vibrant orange, purple, green and pink!! So fun!!


I LOVE the green tablecloths we used!



Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!

Everything looks gorgeous Traci. You definitely have an eye for decorating no matter what the theme is. Didn't make it to Three French Hens this time, maybe Jill did. Thanks for sharing a little bit of your talents.
