This Weekend I’m Going to the Chapel

This Weekend I’m Going to the Chapel



Hello Alabama.

You know I adore you.

I’m coming for a visit this weekend and I’m bringing my red lipstick and my best earrings and some of the cutest stuff you’ve ever seen for the annual Market on Chapel Hill at Pike Road just around the corner from Montgomery.

If you are planning on going, I’ll be in the main building at the back with my sweet friend Lucy from Lucy’s Inspired who makes this awesome, one-of-a-kind jewelry.  This year I’m partnering with Painted Fox to bring my collection to life.

Want a sneek peek of what I’m taking with me?

I’ve put together a few pictures and some ideas of how to use them in your house.





This over-sized silver platter.

It has the most beautiful patina and movable metal handles.

You could stack it in a book case or use it as a Thanksgiving centerpiece stacked high with pumpkins or hang it on the wall with a wreath in front of it.


rustic pumpkins

This wood twig basket.

It comes in two different sizes and it makes everything you put inside look fancy.

You could fill it with pumpkins or place it on a coffee table with books stacked with a nest on top or use it on hutch filled with blue and white plates.


Painted Fox Perpetual Calendar

I’m also bringing a couple of different options of calendars.

There’s a perpetual calendar with these tiny metal sliders that would be perfect in a kitchen or on a bookshelf or a hutch.

This wood block calendar is a fun farmhouse piece, too.



I’m bringing tons of cotton.

You could add it over a door way or layer it into a fall display.

Or you could even add it to a wreath like this.


I’m bringing signs.

Tons of signs like these.


And these.

There are quotes tiny enough to add to a wreath and signs large enough to work in a gallery wall.


I’m also bringing chalkboard tags in different shapes like these.

Don’t even get me started on how to use them.

Label a drink station.  Label baskets in your pantry.  Label stockings.


I’m bringing tons of pedestals like these.


And tiny topiary like these.


And low metal locker baskets like these.


And wood twig vases like these.

This is only the beginning.  There’s so much more I didn’t even have time to list.  There are some one-of-a-kind items and some vintage items and some items from my upcoming Painted Fox collection listed at super special show prices.  We are also offering an amazing giveaway the day of the show.

So stop by the booth and say hi.

You can’t miss me.

I’ll be the one with the stories. 🙂

PS  One more bit of exciting news, if you can’t attend the show, some of these items will be offered through my Painted Fox collection this fall.

Details to come. 🙂

  17. So tickled for you and for us that you were going to have some more things for us to put on Our wish lists.I love the cotton, the quotes, and those pedestals. My mom just bragged on the chicken wire basket I purchased from you last year. I love how you showhow to use your products. If you get a chance, know you’re a busy bee, please share how you use the chicken wire basket for fall displays. Have fun in Alabama! I always have to sing sweet home Alabama as well as will you paint me a Birmingham every time I pass through that state and city. I know you like to sing so I know you will understand why I have to sing these and drive my family crazy in the car! Hope the day is being kind to you. Oh by the way, finally lit my fall candles instead of summer.
