Restocked at Stars

Spent FIVE hours stocking and rearranging my two spaces at Stars yesterday.  Both booths are PACKED with goodies!

AAAAARGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!  My digital camera must be ready to be retired.  I’ve NEVER had problem with focus in the past, but all of a sudden, HALF my pictures are ‘fuzzy’.  And I can’t really tell when I take the pic if it’s blurry with just that tiny window to view the results in.  sigh.  Well, for now it’s either blurry pictures or NO pictures at all.  We deliver to the show tomorrow so I don’t have time to go back and re-take photos.

But at least it IS stocked up enough to last the week, should I be too busy with the show to get back in right away.

Added LOTS of new product to my second booth too!

New display in the big lantern.

LOTS of new cloches!

Vintage child size ballet slippers under a make-do Paris chic cloche.

BIG bird cloche.

And of course all the birds have CROWNS!

A REAL cloche is a rare find!  Even rarer, to find one priced reasonably enough to re-sell!  It has a very tiny chip along the rim (just below the price tag if you are looking in person)  Still, it’s an AWESOME piece!  AND a darn good deal at just $29.00



Especially love the cloches that are BIG enough to create a vignette under.





Shell topped cloche.

another ‘beachy’ cloche with a starfish handle.

SO glad I thought of the crowns for the birds.  They really add that perfect finishing touch and unique aspect.  IF you already have your own birds and/or cloches and just need some little crowns, I’ve got those available too:

In a 2/pk for just $4.00.  Just silver glitter for now.  Will get some of the vintage sheet music ones done after the show.  And I DO have some of the crowns listed in my etsy shop.   They are a tad more expensive on etsy for the fact that I have to package them in a special plastic container to prevent damage in shipping.


Awesome vintage bird cage; $47.00.

Little nest in a vintage urn with eggs and crowned bird sold separately.

Tall nest filled urn.

Sweet shabby chic table top conservatory to fill with plants or other decor.  I just love things like this, that I can change out the contents of seasonally for a new look.

BIG Tiffany blue Paris suitcases; $39 and 49.00.


Little vintage updated Shabby Paris chic jewelry chest.



Vintage Parsons table.  Can’t believe I found one in THIS color!!



I’ve sold quite a bit of the string jar fillers; both IN the jars and just bagged.  The YELLOW ones were the first to go??  (curious as to why?)  But I still have some green turquoise and plenty of white/neutral.

A whole bucket full!

And over in my ‘auxiliary’ booth . . . some new (old!) duck pitchers.

Some awesomely MEGA huge glass jars (close to 3 gal!) ; this one I filled with all my vintage ironstone soup bowls.’

And this one, set inside a wire milk crate, is filled with old books.  What would YOU fill a big jar like this with in your home?

Moved the big white cubby shelf to this space to brighten it up.    Plus, I really needed the space to store the rest of my white dishes.  I had some in each booth, which was ‘okay’; just like it better all together.  Really makes a statement that way and better captures your attention if you are looking for white dishes.



Had to build UP the crate shelf even higher, by adding  three more crates  to accommodate all the white dishes.

Sugar bowls, butter bells and jelly jars.  Dontchya just LOVE the Liberty salt shaker??  Too bad I only found the one, and not the pair.

White serving platters, plate,  turkey gravy boat, and more single shakers.

Creamers and sauce boats.  You’ll also notice a smattering of primitives in this booth.  Old wood utensils, rolling pins, bread boards, enamel ware bowls. . . 


Dinner plates, side plates and serving bowl.

Old milk bottles and another duck pitcher.

Cream pitchers.

Serving platter, tureen, napkin holder, gravy boat and canister.

Small platters, boats, milk glass tea cups and bird salt AND pepper shakers!

 Chip/dip serving tray, small plates, small tureen, cow creamer, owl salt and peppers, and milk carton cream and sugar bowl.

 Serving bowls and milk glass mixing bowl.

LOVE this grubby old bread board shaped like a slice of bread, at the back of this crate.  Ironstone plates and dessert pedestal with cloche top.

Another, slightly smaller dessert pedestal with dome lid.  Italian serving dish in back.

Cutting board, fruit design plates, pretty canisters,  quart milk bottle and decorative wood eggs.

Those wire milk crates make great shelves to hang on the wall!

Don’t forget to give the spinner rack a spin!  All kinds of great little goodies on there; like these newly stocked faux frozen Charlotte dolls.

  1. That’s ok with the blurriness, I just took off my glasses and they look perfect! LOL! SOunds like the autofocus has had the gong. My Little Canon A650 which has been to USA and Canada 3 times, and done a ton of ebay photos has the same problem. Oh well, time for you and I to get new cameras! LOVE the little birdies on the candle stick holders!

  2. Stunning creations and great ‘finds’ as usual. Ever since I discovered your Blog I have been collecting things to use as cloches, gathering all my white stuff together on my shelves, looking out for birds that I can paint and generally taking so much inspiration from your ideas.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Those duck pitchers are to die for! Everything is lovely. Thank you for sharing!
