Barrington Arboretum Antique Show Photos

I love SteepleChase Antiques....great inspiration...
This week I plan on finishing a few upholstery projects and hitting up Direct Auction for some new finds!

Barrington Arboretum Antiques Show

This Sunday was one of my favorite VISUAL shows. I love the way Karrin from SteepleChase Antiques displays her primitive woods, upholstered antique chairs and her fabulous lighting and smalls. Some of my favorite vendors are there, like Diane Passi, Diane Landry and Tangerine Vintage. The show is set in gorgeous Barrington next to a fabulous fountain. Whole Foods has cooking demos and there are many garden and architectural pieces perfect to decorate my floral fantasies. Next show is Sept 18th... I will be at Vintage Bazaar instead but look for me in Barrington in 2012!

Logan Love

Those of you who know me know how much I loved my neighborhood LOGAN SQUARE! We moved here 1o years ago when many people would not dare to go west of WESTERN. Take a look at our walk up and down the historic boulevard. Our adventure began right after a monster storm that took town trees and flooded the area. Happy Viewing!

More on 34 Event


I had the pleasure of attending MORE ON 34 with Lisa Strecker from BLAST FROM THE PAST LinkDESIGNS last month. We drove all the way to the QUAD CITIES in search of undiscovered treasures. Highlights included a huge 50's hat lot in an old barn that literally was filled to the rafters and a fiberglass lampshade in perfect condition. Take a look at a few photos from our escapade...
