Canton in December

The last Canton of this year has come and gone. Thanks to everyone that came out to see us -- braving the nasty rain on Friday and the gusty winds on Sunday! We had the building totally decorated for Christmas and sold lots of vintage holiday items.

Enjoy the pictures and the holiday tunes!!

Come on in.....

Big farm table and highback chairs.

Close-up of chandelier.

Love this big shell planter!

Best mantle ever!!

There are two of these chairs as well as two of the chandeliers.

And there is a pair of these tall twin beds!

Lots of silver trees!

Yet more trees!

Here's one under glass.

Great heavy old iron bed!

Vintage pink pinecone tree.

Having Withdrawal Symptoms...

I know it's been a while since I updated my blog, but I really have a good reason this time. My dad had a big nasty tumor removed from his brain the day after I got back from Canton and blogging just didn't make the schedule. Everything went well and he went home with 62 titanium staples in his head. He made me count them and take pictures -- which I won't post -- but if he had his surgery before Halloween, he would have won the prize for scariest costume! He tried to get the neurosurgeon to let him take the tumor home in a jar, but they said no. It was about the size of a small tangerine! All is going fine and he's just as ornery as ever!

So, let me try to remember Canton....... It was busy!! Everything was decorated for Christmas. We had lots of trees and tons and tons of vintage ornaments! I haven't had time to do much with the pictures, but here are a few shots from The Veranda.........

Market in the Meadow Holiday Show

Don't forget to come by the Market in the Meadow Holiday Gift Show this weekend. I'll be there with lots of vintage Christmas, cute gift items (some even handcrafted by me!) and cottage chic antiques. I'll be set up in the gymnasium -- look for the Christmas tree loaded with vintage ornaments. Stop by and say hello!

My friends Shiloh (from Arbors III at Canton) and Becky (from The Porch at Canton) will also be setting up at the show. Remember, the booths aren't that large - so we won't have that big dining room table & chairs you need for your Thanksgiving dinner. Come see us at Canton for that!!
