Vintage Marketplace faces!!

I love the set up at this show, we had a lot of room to spread and make it shopper friendly. I had a cozy home set up with a living, office, bedroom and dining area. It was fabulous to have so much room to play!
This cutie girly girl is Olivia, daughter of our neighbor and artist friend Jolie Raimondo, she really had a love at first sight with our style and told her mom they had to re do her bedroom Bloomsbury Loft style as soon as they got home! To start she purchase a snazzy green owl.
And who is the handsome tyed up red hair! Our new friend Heath, stylist to the up and coming new Magazine
Folk! This group has great Plans. I love them they are just sooo cute!

When children fly the nest!!

This Mother's day was full of emotions as I came back home from the airport after leaving my Natalia who is off to South Korea for a year. She takes on her parent's spirit of travel and adventure. I just wanted to write about on her on this day, since she gave me the tittle of Mami, as she calls me in our Spanish language. After graduating from SCAD, she went to New York to work in a contract as an animator for Fisher Price, after the project ended she decided to have a year of travel and self discovery and this is how she is embarking on this new adventure, she will be teaching English at a small private school and will be traveling all over the place for a year. Our beautiful daughter has always been a joy and pride in everything she does and to be able to say that at 23 she is an independent and confident young lady that dares to be responsibly adventurous!
To my sweetie I say, we love you and we are sooo proud of you. Thanks for making every day a happy mother's day!
{i hope i get to do a little traveling with her}

PS. ...and she redesign my blog and I love it!

It has been established, we are junk adoring, farm loving and traveling marketeers!

At the Rural Society show everything seems so dreamy. The chickens, peacocks, beautiful furniture and yummy home bakes. Cornish hens, chandeliers, plants and flowers. Cows, sheep and pretty jewelry. What is a girl to do?! Where do I go first? Everything old is fresh and I just feel in a daze. I guess this is what they call the good life! ( the ceiling photo was our host the little bird nesting in our space, thank you little bird for such a lovely time)

Rural Society

This is a little jewel right here in Ohio!
This show is a treat, and you should not miss it. I loooove the beautiful country setting and I just wish them a lot of growth and success!
