Danielle's Boutique in Lakeville, Minnesota

I met the very sweet lady today who sold me an INCREDIBLE piece!  (pictures really soon!)  But I learned that she has a great little shop in her backyard that she holds a Christmas Boutique with great little treasures!  I checked out her pictures on facebook and can't wait to head out to her sale when the time comes.  So if you're in the area around her Boutique times I would suggest to stop in and take a peek.  Great location too!  Thanks again Patty!

"The key to success is often the ability to adapt."

For the past 6 months I have been consigning at 2 stores, Mama's Happy in Mound and Yesterday's Charm in Buffalo.   I have decided to go down to 1 store, Yesterday's Charm in Buffalo.  This decision has NOT been an easy one, however I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted and I can only imagine what's in store for me in the future.  I will continue refinishing and repurposing there's not doubt about that.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do!  I will continue to grow with my business.  I will be posting things on this blog that come up for sale that I may not be able to fit into my store as well as on craigslist and my facebook page (www.facebook.com/countrystyleaccents). 

On a side note, I will be doing a couple of craft shows in November.  November 5th I will be at the Champlin Park High School and the weekend after that November 12th I will be at the Maple Grove Community Center.  Check back for details as well as pictures!

October time!

Who doesn't love the change of the season in Minnesota?!   This is the perfect painting weather and I am having a blast painting outside!  So these are the pictures of my set ups at both the Buffalo store and Mound store.  Life has been very busy but it feels good to get back on track!

I love this blue primitive chair.  I found this at a garage sale 4 houses down from me!  I distressed a little and a darker color blue started to show underneath the littler color!  It is stunning. 

Yes I made these pumpkins myself!  They are so stinking cute!  I love making them.

The orange was my color of choice this month.  I love how this dresser turned out.  I used a rusty color orange and it was a little too bright for me.  So I wiped on some Ebony color stain and painted a little black paint on the knobs and I think it turned out great! 

I found this desk at a garage sale for $10!  When I first saw it I really pondered.  It was very dirty and the back had holes in it.  There were stains and some sort of sticky stuff all over it.  Yuck!  However, I saw it's potential!  I'm sure glad I did.  After lots of sanding and wiping down it turned out really nice.  I reused the back piece and just added corkboard and some burlap fabric.  Brand new! 

See the cute white box on top of the desk?  My sweet husband picked that up for me at a garage sale!  He doesn't do that often so how sweet!  It opens up and has a mirror inside.  We think it may have been apart of a dresser??  On the bottom it looks as though it was attached to something.  Very neat though.

The kids and I went for a walk and I had to throw this picture in here.  What a great reminder of fall!  I love all the gorgeous leaves!  Oh and the kids are pretty cute too!
