Spring is knocking...

With the arrival of Spring comes softer colors. This display with the hand made blue and white quilt is a breath of fresh air! Welcome Spring at Monticello with our new display! Even cows and roosters come in Spring colors!

The blue barn door is a great backdrop for any room. I painted and dark waxed one side in the blue but the other side is the original color white/soft grey. Use it on both sides for two totally different looks. 

Sara has painted another sign on old wood and you have an instant "antique". She does a great job with the graphics and colors. She has a new puppy, Juneau, that is taking time away from her painting! I will keep her focused.... we love Juneau too though. Smart and my first grand dog. 

A vintage French wire birdcage made in Tunisia. Beautiful! 

Little wire and glass picture frames with vintage postcards in them. A nice thank you or birthday gift for anyone. The white enamel soap dishes are so practical you may need a few.

German grain canisters in blue and white. Two have lids and two do not. Priced well.

German Roe deer mounts. Love these! So come help welcome Spring - we are so glad it is here! See you at Monticello!

New Signs

Things sell. Yup they sell! When they do you have to take in new stuff. This is a new "old" sign that Sara painted. It is large and in charge. Looks old but the only one old one  here is me. This is a large sign - love the colors! $295.00 

Another sign painted by Sara! Light blue and smaller. $185.00

A chapel shaped mirror. Love the shape!  What is that a professional photographer in the mirror?  Was in a hurry to go order the black drawer pulls for my new white kitchen. I am not a professional! Love....

Indians and teepees

Told you - Indians and teepees! The folk art Indian is all hand made - from a wooden feather headdress to bottlecap eyes. One of a kind! The teepee I made (and had to convince my cat it was NOT for her).  It has beads and some of my turkey feathers tied on as charms. So a handmade and folk art theme this month.

The Indian woman oil painting on the right wall has no signature but is a wonderful painting with the right colors and lighting.

All ready for story time with a plaid blanket and a handmade cross stitch pillow! The teepee folds up for easy moving or storage too.

A beautiful white birch giclee painting. Peaceful... The lamp is made by hand out of river rocks. 

Bottle cap eyes and war paint - oh my!

The old quilt and a crock full of arrows. So get down to Monticello Antique Marketplace for an hour of shopping for your home. They are open 7 days a week.
