This is a blog about my favorite vintage and creative handmade things in life. I am an artist and crafter, mother and wife, cook and gardener! I love all these hats in my life and would like to share them. I am in love with the past and the present and I am glad to share these with you!
Awesome weekend in Roscoe, Illinois, where Shabby Chic meets Vintage Farm-girl! Lots of vintage and handcrafted items for sale! The Vintage Market Event has a sale each spring and fall stay tuned for more details.

Thanks to Polly, of Counting Your Blessings, and her hubby Steve, for a great set up and hopefully more to come! We so enjoyed ourselves and your warm welcome! Thank you! And for all the wonderful Gals and Gents vendors, and of course our lovely customers!
My friend Amanda from The Old World Apothecary will be joining me and she has some awesome, handmade Laundry Detergent (safe for the environment), as well as home grown organic herbs and many other items!
These are just adorable! Made in Germany in the 1920's and 1930's. These are holiday candy containers and are made of paper mache. These cute little candy containers are known as nodders and open in the middle to fill with candy!
Keep your eyes pealed for ducks, chicks and highly sought after rabbits. Many other German candy containers are Christmas Candy Containers and even St.Patrick's Day. Careful about the stamp on the bottom marked Made In Germany. Many replicas were produced in the USA in later in the 50's. These are still sought after but not as highly collected as the German ones.
These were a great find by my mom and fun to display! Happy Hunting!
I just love springtime flea markets and garage sales! So much fun to find treasures. I love to find treasures I can redo or just enjoy! I live in the Midwest and really enjoy the variety of items left to pick. Frequently I will post on our Facebook Page :https://www.facebook.com/floweringshrub and often I add items to my etsy stores!
