Behind the Picket Fence

Behind the Picket fenceThis past weekend, I finally made it to Behind the Picket Fence. (yes, the apple pie is really good). So happy I finally made it to this market and sad I didn’t go sooner. This market takes place on a regular basis and is located in the parking lot of Piecemakers- an awesome little fabric and craft store in Costa Mesa.

Now, I adore small markets and the pie and fabric store was a bonus. Mom won a raffle prize (she cheated) and I was jealous. But, she did share the gift certificate to Lavender Apothecary with me and we both walked away with sweet smelling candles.

I was most excited to meet Reina, owner of Upcycled Cottage. She is a sweet gentle creative soul. I have been looking forward to meeting her. We shared her upcoming event on our Facebook and she was sweet enough to make it a point to thank us. Upcycled Cottage

Reina’s booth was the second one in at BTPF and it was set up so lovely. Great windows, kitchen signs, and frames. Baskets of throw pillows, step stools, side tables and more.  Her windows are filled with scriptures and beautiful sayings in script. If I had a dozen more walls in my house, I would have bought a few. As it is, I scored a couple of fancy frames.

Upcycled CottageUpcycled cottage has a Vintage Pop Up sale coming up in Valencia August 19th and 20th, starting at 8am. Fourl Road, Valencia, Santa Clarita.

RXRCraftsWe then headed to Fullerton for Merchants Mercantile where I met Renee who owes RXR Crafts. Mom bought me this awesome heart for office wall and I bought the Love you more. My son’s grandmother used to say this to him all the time. (Miss you Sheri) I think these are perfect additions to my office. They look great among the boxes I haven’t unpacked yet. Hubby put these up for me right away, YAY!
