Share Your Style Party #15

Thrilled to have you here at our 15th Share Your Style Party.  You all have made it a great success and it's so appreciated.  My style today is some old ironstone plates I painted and added antique graphics too.  The plates I used were too chippy to use for serving but sure do make pretty art work for the home.  All have sold except this one.  Ron of Uptown Acorn is your host today.  Thank you Ron.





Hi y'all!

It's my turn again to host this great weekly soiree. I hope you will continue to Share Your Style with us.




I spent the Memorial Weekend in my "happy place", Grand Isle. The unofficial start of summer is here, and I am most excited that my summer will be here in just two days.







This is me and my cousin Monique outside Kajun Kastle at age 7, 40 years ago!!!! Do you like my flowered raft???




Do you have summer plans? This summer I have trips planned to Perdido Key, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs. I cannot wait to share the adventures of Uptown Acorn coming soon....

Thanks to all of you who shared your style with us last week. Here are a few of my favorites:

Southern State of Mind shared her beautiful foyer transformation. 




You must see this chair redo from Decor to Adore.




I am a lover of white flowers and silver. Ramon of Rowhouse Blog shared his favorite combination with us.




Meatloaf and Melodrama shared this idea for summer cookies, flip flops. I adore these so much. Brilliant!




Who doesn't love a good summer cocktail? Life In My Empty Nest shared the delicious sounding Simple Cranberry Margarita. Cheers!

Luckett's Spring Market 2015

We didn't make the decision to go to Luckett's Spring Market until the night before, but I am so glad we did.  With previous plans already, we decided to head up there on Sunday, leaving early that morning.  I am so glad we did.  What fun we had.  Less crowds,  beautiful (but hot) weather, and still good pickins.  We came home with a truck load.  It was easy to find a garden seat when you were tired, no long lines at the drink and food trucks and no long car traffic lines to wait in.  With that, we even had time to run to some of the other delightful shops nearby and still be home before dark.  My partner in crime was Libbie of Rusticity.  


Here we are in front of the cutest chicken coop!  Don't you agree!?  The large run was off to the right of it. 




 The vendors at this booth were two French guys.  I could have chatted with them all day.  They had a great eye for classic with the unexpected and gorgeous displays.


this was a de-constructed chair they had created.....not sure I would want it in my home but it would be a fabulous store display



Can you imagine the time it took to make the paper dress for this mannequin.....lots of folding and folding and folding and you can't tell it in the picture but the entire bodice was pin tucked



 love this old pink pedal car


this was the back door to the Design House......one of these days I am going to get up the nerve to paint my foyer like this


the Design House this season was mostly a lesson in greige.  Pretty and soothing.  I was particularly interested in the decorated bedrooms, as I am thinking of redoing mine.


I love seeing how vendors displayed their wares......a pile of old photographs in a basket.  I had fun going through them and bought several old beach scenes to use in my booth for the summer



 Another artistic booth display..... The Robin's Nest



Clutter or Class.....a little of both I think and one that drew me in immediately....love displays like this...treasures to be found for sure


 Is this fun or what!!!???


 I have been in the market for an old truck for the last year with no luck so far.  The old truck has got to have just the right look at a good price.  I will find it eventually. :)


Need some glorious old architectural pieces?......they had it!


I have a love affair with iced flavored coffees.  A vendor was selling some wonderful ones, so I promptly bought one and settled in a garden chair next to this shed and thoroughly enjoyed watching the people go by.  I got to meet up with  some virtual blogging friends in person also and it was like we had known each other for years, with easy conversation.  I even met Ms. Mustard Seed but didn't introduce myself.  She is very gracious.  If you haven' been to Luckett's, put it on your bucket list.  That and the gorgeous surrounding countryside and other darling shops nearby is a great weekend destination.

Share Your Style Party #14

I am so tickled to have you at our 14th Share Your Style party. We have so many fabulous participants.  The inspiration and different styles are a treat to see every week.  Today, I am sharing a few photos of my trip to Luckett's last weekend. It's a vintage market you do not want to miss. If you have never been, it's a bucket list item. :)



Don't you love this entire scene??!!!  The shed, the old doors, the gate!....actually the rusty horse and urn on stand are new pieces and even the blue flowers aren't real.....get out!!!



These vendors were two French guys and their style just blew me away....so polished, antiquey but with the new too, but all melded and blended in a fresh new way.  I could have chatted with them all day.


Can you imagine the time it took to dress this mannequin??!!  Pleats upon pleats and you can't tell it in this photo but the entire front of her dress was tiny pin tucks.  Oh my!

Now on to the party and thank you Martina for hosting.
