Weekend View

Welcome to the weekend view.

This, that, everything and randomness all rolled into one.
This week- it is all about Vintage.

From finally getting that marble fireplace mantel and surround rebuilt
to working on some upcoming Christmas projects
and to a fun workshop in Roseville, CA with my friends at Tumbleweed & Company.

Tumbleweed & Company

A fun afternoon at Tumbleweed & Company playing with flowers, signing books and chatting with new friends. I hopped in the car on Saturday and headed to the charming old town area of Roseville- which is in northern California. 

My friends and Katy have the most fascinating shop filled with the most curious and amazing treasures. (yes, I brought a couple things home!) 

They were so gracious to host a book signing for French Country Cottage- and we also did a fun make and take floral arrangement. Several ladies chatted and played with flowers - and though not everyone was there for the photo- just look how gorgeous everything came together! 

I'll share more about what I brought home with me soon- and if you are in the Northern California area- you won't want to miss a stop at Tumbleweed & Company.

Vintage Fireplace LOVE

You probably noticed a glimpse of that antique marble fireplace that we put in the little cottage living room... and I am so excited to share more about it this week. 

You see, it didn't look like that when we bought it...

More on how we put Humpty Dumpty back together again (including what not to do)

Speaking of vintage...
