Heres a little of what I call the coolness factor I found on the pages of City Farmhouse. You know me and my love for industrial. Too cool for school!
Style, style, style. Love the great combination of a little modern with overtones of tradtional!
Diversity...from the picture above to this more European vignette. Totally different, but same great style.
Very nice photography...love the clean approach. I also love the lighting itself. If you are urban, modern, and contemporary this vintage look might be just right for you!
Smiling while building. Go, David, go!
You know me...I love my flowers. Kim is a girl after my own heart and loves to serve up flowers in a vintage format.
And then...just plain, old-fashioned great junk in the rough.
Bloggers of the Month will receive this blogger button. Lani designed this and said something about a famous Sally Field acceptance speech?! I dont know....Im too busy junking to watch TV. Ah.hahaha! I hope to hear from you. Lets celebrate bloggers together!

So if you are intereted...STOP! what you are doing and follow along!

We here at JMS are all about celebrating creativity, talent, and freedom of expression. We are also comitted to growing and maintaining the best online community where your gifts can be shared and your voices heard. Bloggers are a huge part of our industry and we'd like to clebrate you!! Here's How we plan to do it!

Timing:

Each month the JMS crew of editors and contributors will select two bloggers to feature. The features will run on the same day...one in the morning and one in the afternoon. If your blog is chosen it will appear as a feature on the "big board" on the left column of the site.

Selection:

After receiving your submissions the JMS crew will review and select 2 bloggers each month. Unfortunately we will not be able to feature everyone as there are just not enough days in the year for all of the talented bloggers out there! Our hope is to be able to showcase a broad range of styles in an effort to celebrate the blogging community as a whole!

Here is what we will be looking for...

1. Originality of Content

4. Diversity of Content

Did you guys know that I am a stripper?

Not a painter. OMG, what were you thinking? I hate to paint but I love to strip furniture - not strip it to refinish it, but to strip off the mess someone else made and bring it back to the old surface. Today, I did just that to an old butcher block industrial table. I left the old gray/blue paint on the steel base but removed the ugly stain that had been applied to the top. I'll show you a photo of the finished piece tomorrow.

It was a beautiful day for stripping - not too hot - and not too cold. The sky was blue, the sun was shinning, and the butterflies were out by the hundreds. They must have enjoyed the water.

In case you were wondering were I have been.... For the last 2 weeks we have had a lot of sickness in the family, my daughter at the ER, my daughter starting college, a big event to plan, Not to mention, the shop has been very, very busy. We did a re-do this past week-end. Lots of new things came in and we totally did a re-design of the shop. You have to come see. Also, Delia, Stressed & Destressed (check her out on the blog roll) brought in an entire booth full of fresh merch. I'm totally in love with the chest on chest.

Also, some fab things came in from the ever popular, Vintage Junky. You don't want to miss out!

See you soon at City Farmhouse in beautiful Franklin, Tennessee!
