These are super cool! They are vintage shabby chic in the best possible way!! Thank you for the very careful packaging. I would have been devastated if the glass got broken on the long trip. Harder to get into than Ft. Knox!!

Promising Made Me Finally Just Do It

My story begins with my 84 year old, adored by all father who recently passed away. A while back he thoughtfully gave his children their inheritance early so he could enjoy watching us spend it. At the time, I put mine aside not wanting to think about what it represented.

A week before he passed he phoned and asked what I was going to do with my portion. I told him my plans of wanting to open up a shop. I promised him then I would use his gift to do so. We talked for a while about it and I could tell in his voice he was pretty happy. Afterall, he was the one who taught me how to refurbish years ago when in high school I got the itch to redecorate my room. We prepped it , repainted it, added wallpaper, and revamed some existing pieces to match. He was always painting something in our house. And he never threw anything away, but rather saved it to use somewhere else. He was also a history buff and loved old things - thus me!

Sadly a week later he made his journey home. I'm so grateful to have had that moment to share what it was I planned to do.

His gift, his phone call and my promise were the stepping stones I needed to do what I've wanted for many years, but didn't (for reasons I can't even remember now). My dad reshaped my future with his gentle, unknowing nudge. I know he's helping me along my way as I feel his presence every day.

Finally, July 2012 we opened up shop on Etsy. We believe this will help us in launching a storefront someday soon ~ so stay tuned!

Farm French re-creates new age farm from (or to) old world charm in furnishings and home wares.

Our workshop consists of a storage facility (sometimes called a bonus room) and work room (some call a garage).

Somedays we (my crew) shop for finds, other days we sand, paint, stain, swear and paint some more. We laugh a lot, clean up and start all over again the next day.

One of my favorite things to do is have a photoshoot or two after the hard work is done. I make it interesting with boulders, steps, sidewalks, trees and concrete walls. I focus on up close shots that pull you and make you want to look further. The outdoors is the perfect back drop for what I do.

I love all things vintage or antique. I estate shop, garage sale and attend auctions (but only when my good friend Lorna comes with). I go on junkets to small towns passing the time while the paint dries. The history mystery behind an item is what keeps me intrigued and the thrill of the hunt of course. I for one am a hopeless romantic for old things. I always wonder who owned it, what they did with it and/or whether it was something passed down. I love dings, chips, cracks and the rusty and crusty which tell the story we'll never know but takes over my imagination.

Thanks Etsy for giving me the next stepping stone to attaining my dream of having a storefront someday.

I also sell furniture and other goodies at Monticello Antique Marketplace in Portland.

Never say goodbye, but 'SO LONG for now'. Miss you daddy!
