…my mentor

Miss Mustard Seed! She just doesn’t know she’s my mentor. I first stumbled upon her when I was searching for interesting vintage finds online. They I realized that she had space at Lucketts in one of the outdoor pavilions. I went and visited her beautiful things there and continued to read her posts about refinishing furniture & upholstery. She is a real talent!

It was exciting to see her move to the 3rd floor of Lucketts and visit her room at the Holiday Open House a few weekends ago. Her furniture was beautiful & she even handmade sweet little holiday ornaments! That's where I found the scale that now sits in my kitchen.

So, I had to email her a picture of the scale's new home and within the hour I got an email back from her!

"Oooo!  It did go to a good home and it looks perfect there.  It’s always fun to “hear from” my pieces that are sold.  Thanks so much.  This e-mail made me smile. Yes, I always seem to need help!  Maybe we could find a way to work together. "

That last part was me asking if she never needed help filling her room at Lucketts! ha! Had to take the opportunity 🙂

Time for a special post about Lucketts! I am a bit hesitant to post this because it’s been my secret little treasure trove where I get all my accessories. In fact, it’s the one place I want to go to when I get some me time away from the kids. Shopping, of course, but getting to drive out to Lucketts, VA and hunt for treasures is just 10xs better.

Here are a few of my finds:

vintage mannikin feet

  old trough & ladder on the wall

  bird cage & tobacco thing that I hung on the wall

Their Holiday Open House is coming up the first weekend in November. You will find antique items and replicas. It's so much fun!
