I SAID I WOULD SO............

I've uploaded a few photos of my set-up at the Ice House Mall in Barrington, IL, that runs thru Sunday. I wouldn't say there were record crowds on Thursday, but it was steady all day. For me, cloches, plants, silver plate and my nature pillow covers seemed to be popular. With misc. this and that of course. So......... if anyone lives close by, there is still plenty of time to enjoy the offerings at the Ice House. Also, there are many upscale retail shops there that have great merchandise. Gotta run now....be back in a few!










This is a last minute little thing. I wanted to make a nest wind chime, and I couldn't find my rusty old keys, so I used some rusty old belt buckles instead. Surprisingly, the sound they make is really pleasant!

Lovely vignettes of all your beautiful treasures!
I like your idea of a wind chime with rusty old keys, I have a few of them, so I might give that a go, without the nest, because at our cottage there is always a steady breeze coming up from the valley and I don't want it blown away. You are so clever using the belt buckles instead of the keys, I think that works really well! Thank you for the inspiration!

Using what you have works well.

Your booth is lovely. I like the chicken wire cloche and that painted wood sign....how large is that clock face by the way?

A lovely display there! We had a great day at the Woolfest. I think Ippikin have displayed there in past years but not this year. We love their little shop.

Lovely! And I really like your sweet little accordian folders and those fabulous fabric flowers. I have so many unfinished projects. Love what you did with hat, turning it into a planter. Best wishes for your Wednesday. :) Tammy

Hi Jude
I see what you mean, wonder why someone would want to waste their time doing such a stupid thing.
Love your displays, and I really like the belt buckles. But then I am a fan of yours anyway :)
Have a great show
Blessings
