The Farm Chicks Junk Junket has lots of Come Junk With Us perks that are only being offered to us. It's going to be super fun.

Roulette Vintage Valentine's Fashion Party
118 1/2 East Main Street
This weekend marks Johanna Parker's 7th annual Holiday Folk Art Show and Open House in Lakewood Colorado December 5th & 6th. During this open house you'll have an opportunity to see original works of Johanna's vintage-style folk art, as well as peek into her charming 1930's cottage-style home.
Vintage and art what more could you ask for! Johanna's work doesn't need very much explaining, she's known as a designer for both Bethany Lowe Designs and Primitives by Kathy. She'll be featuring those reproductions for sale during her open house.
The open house is open to all of Johanna's supportive collectors and friends that are on her e-mail list. Once you sign up for the list, you'll receive details, address information and show times. You don't have to RSVP, but you will need to be on this mailing list or request to be included in order to get the full details.
These shoppers were among the first to arrive at the 2008 open house.
Above is a fun holiday spray in vase featuring vintage aluminum tree branches, glass ornies and her reproduction belsnickels.
While you are shopping Johanna and her husband serve up delicious hot cider on their vintage stove as well as special treats for their guests.
I asked Johanna what her inspiration was for her decorating style in her delightful kitchen.
I love the style and color of the 30s and 40s. and am attracted to vintage, Art Deco motifs. Our 1939 house has really inspire me to decorate this way with its unique charm. The bright cheerful color palette of the old pottery designs and vintage floral fabrics from that era have also inspired me too!.... Beyond that, family antiques and nicknacks have been passed down to me from that era that helped build my interest and fascination for this style. My art is certainly inspired by this vintage look as well and blends well with all the old stuff I love to collect.
Items for sale will include Johanna's signed
reproductions offered through both Primitives by Kathy and Bethany Lowe
Designs. Collectible ornaments, candy bowls, Santa figurines,
and illustrated notepads are just a few of the delights. Each year,
Johanna also creates a winter collection of one of a kind folk art pieces for Christmas which are also available to collectors.
For more information and details on how you can attend this years show, please visit Johanna Parker Design
Thanks to Johanna for sharing a peek inside her holiday show with us as well as your 1939 cottage with us. You can also connect with Johanna and see more of her work at her blog Johanna Parker Design.

A Special thank you to EllynAnne Geisel author of The Apron Book & Apronisms for introducing us to your latest project Tie One On Day. We are thrilled with this concept and think this November, the month of giving thanks is a perfect time to Tie One On.
Where did your vision for Tie One On Day come from?
I was fairly astonished by the carrying on of those-with-more-than-most when Thanksgiving rolled around. For a holiday with thanks at its root, to hear complaining and all seemed wrong. Then, three years ago, I was beginning to prepare my own feast, when a neighbor, who'd experienced a bit of sadness, popped into my head. And I thought about how I could convey to her that she was on my mind and in my heart. So, I took one of the pies I'd already baked, wrapped it in a vintage apron, and slipped a personal note in the pocket; then I tied one on myself (an apron, of course!) and walked the bundle over. The look on her face...priceless. When I returned to my house, walking in the front door, I was cognizant that I had a home in which to live and food to prepare for the friends who would gather at my table the next day. I realized then how incredibly fortunate I was. How immense was my personal bounty.
What do you hope to achieve during Tie One On Day?
My hope is the realization that for each participant, there is a receiver, so each year hence, our numbers increase significantly. Sharing one's bounty is a win-win.
Is there a significance in the loaf of bread, used during Tie One On Day? Absolutely! Bread is made of common ingredients, and throughout its processing, it is aromatic, filling our senses even before our tummies. And what else, when sliced and slathered with butter, brings us such joy and comfort?
As a lover of vintage aprons I was thrilled to hear of your new book launch The Apron Book. Can you tell us a little bit about it?
The Apron Book, which published in fall of 2006 is in its sixth printing. It is a love story to a humble icon...a celebration if its significance to women historically and emotionally.
Be sure to follow Vintage Indie as we will be reviewing a few of EllynAnne's books in the near future.
In the mean time, Tie One On tomorrow November 26th.
In honor of National Tie One On Day, wrap a loaf of bread in an apron or nice tea towel to take to someone in need of spiritual or physical sustenance.
Tuck a note or encouragement or prayer inside.
EllynAnne Geisel, creator of Tie One On Day, says that no matter which way you turn out of your own front door, there's someone close by who deserves this thoughtful gesture.
Hey everyone ( I meant to post this earlier)

ONE DAY ONLY!
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2008
10:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Happening at: THE PENN PLAZA PAVILLION
(401 Seventh Avenue at 33rd Street, NYC)
BUST Magazine’s Holiday Craftacular is set for Saturday, December 13, and it's going to be our BIGGEST ONE EVER!
You may have already missed the 2008 Brimfield Antique Show, but we have a few teasers and information so you can plan ahead for next years show. Today we'd like to welcome you to the beautiful booth of Antique Therapy and Thistlebees from this September 2-4th show.
I asked Keri of Antique Therapy a few questions about their vintage style. I also wanted to know what vintage and antiques to expect at their booth in next years show.
I would describe my vintage style as being a mix of Shabby & Chic with French and European influences sprinkled in. My style is sophisticated yet simple at the same time. Next year we will have a lot of furniture, along with an eclectic array of antiques including, paintings, ephemera, transferware, and anything else that is to cool to live without!
To Keri and Amy's surprise the lovely and talented Rachel Ashwell founder of Shabby Chic (R) paid a visit to their booth.
( Keri Seery, Rachel Ashwell, Amy Holwell, and Barbara Bacon.
Do you have any tips for newcomers of the show, for next year?
The biggest piece of advice I can give to newcomers visiting Brimfield would be to be prepared for viewing an overwhelming amount of antiques in one day. The show spans for more than a mile so make sure to wear comfortable shoes as well as dressing in layers. You may also want to bring some healthy snacks to keep your energy up while shopping. The most important thing is to have fun and take it all in
Don't forget to plan ahead for the Brimfield shows in 2009. Visit the Brimfield website.
