Fall Inspiration For "Glitterfest" Romantic French Farmhouse!
I've only had about a week to work on my booth for glitterfest. My main inspiration came from an old french needlepoint rug I obtained out estate sale shopping with the Sweet Magnolia Farm girls a few months back. The colors in the rug are what I drew from to form a romantic french farmhouse feel, it also allowed me to bring in some of my other alternate art. I gave myself a $150.00 budget to go antique shopping for accessories to use for ambiance and to display my art. I had so much fun , I found an old suitcase, a rustic stepladder, a small birdcage, a variety of baskets, old lace,books and a really awesome old drawer with a vintage pull handle. I glammed up some silver with vintage rhinestones and hand-painted a couple more chalkboards.I found all the straw, twigs and branches in my yard. I'm almost ready for the adventure! Please enjoy my sneak-peek and then I'm packing up the car!
I'm a mother of 2 beautiful children , Cherise and AJ, whom are the loves of my life. I have 2 dogs that I adore, Jack and Jade. My creative passions are painting roses and decorating. I recently moved from a charming 1920's beach cottage to a very large home in the country, my "Chateau de Fleurs" where I now have a studio/shop in my home and also host a vintage marketplace every 3 months.
