Here’s a fabulous display from one of my favorite dealers at last weekend’s Sage Farm “Dear Santa” show.
That’s a solid old mantel top with lots of molding, plus chippy paint in pale yellow and green. Comical red-hatted elves atop glass vases. “Peace” signs handpainted on old framed boards. Lots of greens.
And what’s that nailed up on the mantel?
An old wooden suit hanger in bright red! Wound with a string of vintage Christmas bulbs plus some tinselly sparkle and ribbon. And a cute little yellow elf glued securely on.
Do you love that as much as I do?
More shiny Christmas stuff coming to Sage FarmPosted: December 4, 2014 Filed under: Craft, Holidays, Sage Farm, Where to find the dish sisters | Tags: Christmas, Christmas decoration, craft, crafting, Crafts, Sage Farm, vintage Christmas crafts, vintage ornament wreath 1 Comment
True confession: I’ve never sold anything I’ve made. I hope that still isn’t true after the upcoming Dear Santa show at Sage Farm. I’ve got a small collection of Christmas wreaths about to make their public debut.
Have a look!
Not impressed? Well then how about this one?

Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But at November’s Sage Farm show, there were a few corners that looked a lot like Christmas.
I snapped some photos of red & green. Take a look!
Seven smalls I saw at SagePosted: October 12, 2014 Filed under: Craft, Fun Finds, Sage Farm, Vintage pottery | Tags: McCoy pottery, Quilting, Sage Farm, yellow is a happy color 2 Comments
Part of the fun of going to Sage Farm is seeing how the best dealers merchandise their stuff. I always try to look at that. It’s a free education if you pay attention!
But a few smalls always catch my eye, too. Here are six of them from last weekend’s Sage Farm show. First, a McCoy iris vase displayed with other pottery. I don’t care that it’s McCoy, I just love the flutey shape, and the yellow. Because yellow is a happy color. (A vase identical to the green one behind the yellow McCoy is sitting on my mantel right now!) An almost-rusty steel window screen displays vintage postcards. Wouldn’t this be great in your kitchen for recipes and notes? Too bad rust isn’t my thing. Now if I found a white enameled steel version . . .
See the other goodies I found!
