Day Trip

Guilded Junkyard booth pics

Last weekend my friend Jeannie and I went on a fun trip to Morris, IL to the 3 French Hens Holiday Boutique. We had a good hour or so drive to Morris, but the time passed quick as we chatted and laughed the whole way there. Jeannie and I have only known each other for about a year and she is one of those people that come into your life that you feel like you have known forever. I feel, we are twin sisters from a different mother. We met at a flea market (imagine that) of all places and both design jewelry and share a love of vintage and we are both dealing with teenagers. So that being said, we had a lot to talk about.

We arrived in Morris and spent some time shopping in some great boutiques in town...
"Whimsy" which had a great window decor and even better when you got inside!
& "Ruby Begonia's" beautiful clothes and other fun things

Then off to the 3 French Hen's Holiday boutique where we saw many great vendors including one of our favorite vendors and bloggers Jeanine of "Chippy Shabby"

We ended up back at Jeannie's beautiful home. This girl has a home and studio to die for. So much fun exploring and digging through beads and vintage jewelry in her studio. If you live in the area and get a chance to go to Woodstock and see her & partners Lisa & Laurie's booth in the antique mall in town, do! Check out their blog at

The picture on the top of this post is from their booth as well as the refinished headboard with the angel, unfortunately most of my pictures did not turn out or I would of had a lot more:(

And for you Vintage Lovers, new belt listed on my etsy site~xo
