Bella Vintage Marketplace | Have You Been?

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

There are a few special events I enjoy going to every year. One of them is the Bella Vintage Marketplace, formerly known as Bella Rustica. It’s held in the Nashville area ( different venue every year) and raises money for Agape. I really enjoy this market because there are a lot of vintage things….as the name implies….and the displays are always gorgeous. I go mainly to get craft/diy ideas and to drool over the displays. If I only had the design skills some of these ladies have!

The day was hot and muggy but no rain. The venue for the marketplace this year was Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin.

Some of the vendors were from up North. I’m assuming that’s where all the pumpkins came from. I sure haven’t seen any around here yet.

Man, I thought I was good….artist material even. I decided producing quality art was so easy I would try it again.

Junktion Red Special Paint Mix Formula

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Remember the special red paint mix that I named “Junktion Red”? Well, I finally remembered to slap some paint on a paint stick and take it to Home Depot so they could match the paint.

The first thing I do when I start a project is select the paint color. Some times I don’t have the perfect color so I mix my own from paint I have on hand. The only problem with that is I can’t repeat that special mix. I don’t measure anything….that would make way too much sense. So the only thing to do if I really love the color is to take a sample of the paint to Home Depot and have them match it.

It’s the perfect height for a child’s table or for a coffee table. It is a little long so not sure about the coffee table.
