Come on over...

to my facebook page to see my obsession of Wilendur tablecloths.  I am going to try this once to see if you will like me on my facebook page, too.  I seem to be getting more action there than on my blog so I made my post there and I am inviting all who read my blog to stop by.  Thanks.  Denise

If you're going to Wildwood...

You know I have three spaces at Traditions Antique Mall in Wildwood.  We're 30,000 square feet big, so come for the day, enjoy the mall  and then enjoy the area.  The mall opens at 9:30 a.m. so come early and get your day started.

After shopping the mall, I highly recommend Cotillion Southern Cafe on Hwy 301 for lunch. It's only a mile or two from the antique mall.  They serve fried green tomatoes, and make the most glorious homemade desserts...need I say more??? 

On your way there you will pass by one of my favorite shops in town: The Red Door - Gifts and Home Decor.
Lisa Corrales, the owner, carries a wonderful selection of rustic iron garden decor, cement garden art, and outdoor garden furniture and accessories.  Inside the shop there is a wonderful selection of interior cottage and garden decor and gifts, hand painted furniture,custom florals, and of course, jewelry!  I'll let you peruse the pictures so you can get a feel for her inventory.  And, the cute dogs in the pictures...they are there to greet you and might even look for a little attention, but they're not for sale! Sorry!

 That's my Mom...she likes The Red Door, too!

That's my sister in the upper left, but don't tell her...she didn't want to be in a picture...

 That's Lisa...she's a pretty Southern girl!

 Aren't these little guys cute...they'll be at the door when you arrive...always a wonderful greeting!

Lunch with Fellow Bloggers

                                                  Me, Carol, Kathy, and Sue.

Ya know...not everyone gets it.  We decided it was nice to sit and chat with one another because we have similar interests and most of those that we know that aren't in the business just don't get it.  Carol even said her son refers to Carol's followers as her "invisible friends".  Well, they might be until we get together for lunch and we become reality. We met at BRIO in Winter Park Village yesterday for an awesome Italian lunch...the food was wonderful if you haven't been to one yet, and we enjoyed each other's company.  Carol is especially helpful and will share all of her secrets.  She is a shabby chic girl and loves to do all kinds of shabby chic and French-style crafts.  Check out her blog: The Polka Dot Closet. She has an etsy shop and also sells locally at Orange Tree Antique Mall in Orlando. And, she has been published twice in Romantic Homes Magazine!  I took a couple of pictures of some things she recently brought in. 
Carol found a ceramic pair of ballet shoes and covered them in mosaics. Aren't they cute?
Carol "won" this cute stool at an auction, painted the wood base, covered it in linen, and used an old stamp kit to make it's priced at only $28.00 !!!

Kathy and Sue from Sue-Bees and Butterflies have a wonderful booth at Art Angels on S. Orange in Orlando. They do shabby chic as well.  Sue is the shabby girl and Kathy is the chic, but I think we're turning Kathy into a shabby girl, too!  I have to praise Sue for pushing me to get my blog rolling.  She has been blogging for a while and has a lot of followers and follows a lot of awesome bloggers. You can thank her if you're sitting here reading this!

Lastly, a bit of great news!  I was just informed that I have been accepted as a vendor at The Fancy Flea market that is held in Lakeland twice a year. Mark your calendars.  It's a one-day event, Saturday, November 12th from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. on Kentucky Ave in downtown Lakeland. 
I have lots to do to prepare, but so excited to be participating.  I know there are a lot of wonderful vendors setting up this time.  Yes, they "get it"!  It will be awesome.  Come see me! Come see us!  Kathy and Sue will be there, too!
