Hello friends!  I hope you all had a beautiful weekend.
June is coming up fast, and I'm quickly preparing to open up my very own brick and mortar (or should I say tent and table) at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market !

So here is what I made this weekend!

My shop sign!!  I found this old busted window frame in a back alley close to where I work. My husband and mother in law helped me find a backing for it and paint it with chalk board paint.  There you have it!  Now everyone at the market will know who I am!  Oh, I also found that fun art easel in the dumpster! Just added a few coats of yellow spray paint and BAM!  Really! The excellent junk people throw in the dumpster!
Also new to the shop this week is some shabby burlap bunting banners!
With a quote from one of my favorite Beatles songs.
Love, Love me do!

I will be adding this to MY ETSY SHOP in the next few days so make sure to look for it.
Remember, if you want a banner made with a quote that's personal to you, feel free to message me and I will be happy to make you a custom order.  All of my burlap has been treated and will not fray what so ever.
Do any of you have some ideas for fun short quotes to put on bunting banners?
I need ideas!

Your sign is AWESOME! And I love the bunting banner. I'll come up with some ideas for you and email them to you.
