Sometimes the fun of living in an old home is all of the bizarre angles and different sized walls. Outlets seem to have been forgotten and extension cords run everywhere. The floors are uneven and a table works in one corner but wobbles in another. Ah yes, and all of the dirt goes through the wide pine planks straight to the cold, stone basement. I love this house!

Yesterday my friend and partner for Flea Market Flip dropped by unexpectedly to pick up some items I had been storing in my garage from last years expedition to Canton High School. You may be thinking that the word "expedition" is over kill, but it's been a long time since I had to wake up and get to school before the 'bell rang'. In addition, it is quite the morning trek to get to the school for 7 A.M.

When I started my business I didn't have a clue what it would manifest into. In fact, I wasn't even sure that I would make it to the three year mark.With a background in Interior Design, painting furniture seemed like a good place to start.To this day I love painting furniture and I am always trying to outdo myself on the next project... but some time over the last year or so I found that I evolved.

Yesterday was the opening day of the Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT. It is one of my favorite markets to sell at because of its convenient location, eclectic mix of items and one of a kind dealers. We arrived promptly at 4:15 AM and took our place in line. We waited with everyone until gates opened at 5 then went in and set up.

Over the last few months I have been dabbling with lathe turning. Due to the rainy, dreary weather my friend Jay of (Artfull Furniture) & I decided it would be the perfect day to spend inside the wood shop. After turning many spindles and random things, today turned out to be the perfect opportunity to try making a bowl! My first wooden turned bowl!
