Canton was last weekend .. and it turned out to be a pretty good show in spite of the abundance of tornadoes and high winds .. we had chilly mornings .. and pleasant afternoons .. though the weather people scared everyone with talk of tornado warnings and watches .. we didn't see much rain to speak of .. and Sunday was downright pleasant .. though no customers ..
I forgot to take my camera along .. so the only pic I have is from my phone ..
this was taken from the front of the booth.. we had an old army cot all dressed up and draped with mosquito netting .. it was quite cute and started a conversation with Rod and a customer over the metal gliders we used to slipcover .. I promised that customer I would upload some pics of gliders we had done in the past ..
this glider all in white and accented with a single green damask pillow was shown at Marburger .. it sold the first day it was shown ..
this glider and the one below were both shown in Warrenton at the Hillcrest Inn .. they both sold the first day ..
this one was also shown at Warrenton at the Hillcrest Inn show, I think it sold the second day of the show ..
this one was done in vintage denim and tablecloth check in red and white and vintage tablecloth pillow fronts .. it was shown in Canton and sold the second time it was shown ..
this is one of my favorite Warrenton gliders ..I covered it in a gorgeous Cath Kidson rose pattern fabric and accented it with eyelet underskirt .. then draped it with mosquito netting .. sold the first day ..
this is one done for Canton.. it is covered in vintage mattress ticking and had a matching chair.. both pieces sold though separately that weekend..
other than that .. not a lot going on .. hoping the upcoming Canton is a good one .. Rod is working on some cool things for the show .. we are also doing some minor things around the house ..
ya'll have a good weekend ..
There And Back...
