Prairie Thistle at the Bottom's Up Antique Market

A quick share of my booth this month at the Bottom's Up Antique Market that opens tomorrow.  I have filled my space with loads of wonderful things for garden, home and body.

There are so many things I love in this space like the Breakfast at Tiffanys style dress and hat on the mannequin, the black walnut cross on top of the cabinet on the left, and the hanging lamp made from a vintage galvanized metal funnel.

I designed this French inspired shelf that I so admire in Jeanne de Arc Living Magazine with loads of hooks and cubbies to display your favorite collections.  My talented husband, Dan made these beauties for me.  I can't wait to hang mine at the farm!  For my out of town friends, let me know if you are interested and I can check on shipping options.


One of the favorite things I made for the show is this "Sisters" piece that is a printed dictionary page soldered between two panes of glass with vintage brass corners - they are gorgeous.


A painting that I did of the shadow of an angel above vintage sheet music bits with deep blue space below.  I added "The Angels Sing" in french below.  I painted the angel and the letters in a silver metallic paint that appears and disappears depending on the angle. 

 The Queen of Sheba mixed media shadow box in a vintage sucrets tin.

A vintage Little Red Riding Hood doll and book.


A barnwood cross  that features "With the Help of God " written in French is one of my favorites.

Two large vintage blue fruit jars made into sweet lamps.

Just a glimpse into my booth...hope you enjoyed it.

Blessings my friends - Julie

It's gorgeous, only problem is if folks buy something and mess up your wonderful arrangement!
Seriously all of your touches make it so inviting. Good luck with your selling season.

Oh my gosh. I love it! I wish I could swing on by. Although, it must be kinda far from San Francisco :~) Let me know if you're ever out this way.
