I've been away for several days working on my new booth space here in my town of Edmond, Oklahoma.  I've been yapping about this on several posts now because lately getting the space ready has taken nearly all my focus.  It's almost stocked...ALMOST!  Still have some things to clean up and price...such fun!

For those of you who are local I hope you'll come visit me.  You can find my wee little booth at
Edmond Antiques!
(Downtown Edmond, Oklahoma)
 Thought you'd like to see where I am right now with my space.  It's not big...about 10' x 10'.  I'm nowhere near stocked up or truly ready for selling...but I'll get there before long!  Lots of things base painted and ready for artwork so I'll be super busy over the next couple of weeks!  My Miss K is now OUT of school and is coming to spend all next week with me!  So...along with opening up my new booth I'm going to be visiting some fun kid-places around town!

For those of you who are wondering about my website...well...I've not abandoned it.  Truly not!  I promise I'll be getting back to stocking it as soon as I can.  Sweet new painted pretties are coming this summer!  Rest assured I still LOVE what I do...just wanting to expand a little!  Stay tuned for lots and lots of yummy hand painted pink roses!
I hope they will make you swoon!
Last month when I was in Cali visiting my brother, Bill, my sister and I visited more thrift stores than I can tell you.  I've never seen more second-hand stores than those on the West Coast.  We have tons of them popping up here in Oklahoma, but nothing like there is in California!
 Anyway...I snagged this darling not-quite-vintage pink wool and cashmere coat for $9.99 at a Goodwill in Whitter, CA.  Isn't it the sweetest thing?  It fits me perfectly and I can hardly wait until the weather turns cool so I can wear it!

I'm going to be styling in 

 Today I'm linking up with
Miss Beverly
over at
(It's PS 4th Birthday!  Can you believe it?)

Hope your day is wonderful.  My guy is OFF WORK today and I'm yippy-skippy-ing around because we have so little time together with him being in school and all.  Today is OUR DAY to goof off and have fun.  I'm sooo happy!  Graduation in November will be here before too long and I can't wait!

Love to you...

Hi Rebecca! Your booth looks amazing! Oh I wish I could stop right in!

I've been refinishing some old pieces and have thought of how you and a few other very, very talented ladies make magic happen with those vintage pieces!
Looking at your booth, I can only hope that I can come just a little close to what your refinished pieces look like!
Wishing you lots of success and joy with your new venture!
Blessing always,

Dearest talented friend:

It's all just dreamy and enchanting. I wish I could visit, but it's just as well. I'd MOVE into that booth! Have you seen the IKEA commercials where the people are living in the store? That would be me. Living in your booth. OK, I am getting slap happy now.
Seriously, best of luck to you. You better get painting because all of that gorgeousness is going to be gone very soon.

Dearest Rebecca,

This is magazine material and I bet you there is not even a handful of such romantic self-styled booths in the entire nation! You GOT it lady, you're SUPER-ROMANTIC and very active.
Enjoy your free weekend, it's Pentecost and also wish you a Happy Memorial Day.
Love to you,

Wow, the big reveal is here and it's gorgeous. Wish I lived closed to you so I could visit and buy you out, but I'm just a bit far. Congratulations on having this lovely shop/booth, you and your AGPMan have done a fabulous job. Blessings...Lu

GORGEOUS booth! I love that it is looking full, I see so many booths that look gorgeous, but aren't stocked full enough and then wonder why there sales are not what they want! I have let my online store get cobwebs, it is hard with life, booth, online store..Have fun next week!


NanaDiana said...

Your booth is looking great, Rebecca. I love it...and I can imagine all the wonderful things that will be finding their way into that space. I also love your coat -pretty in pink!

The best part of your post tells me that MissK is coming to visit. How wonderful it will be to have that little helpmate around for a week- Blessings- xo Diana

Rebecca your booth looks fantastic! Did you build the bracing to hold the fabric at ceiling? What a great look! My booth is 10x10 too but you make yours look much bigger than mine does!

Have a great time celebrating this long weekend!

Dorthe said...

Dear Rebecca, it looks fantastic, and so wonderfully romantic- I wish you the best of luck with your sommer ,in this lovely booth.

Susie Jefferson said...

How gorgeous - love the booth, but it's going to be hard to part with that coat!

I'm happy to say I'm back on Blogger again - WordPress was a total disaster, people couldn't leave comments etc, and it was a nightmare to try and post - so I hope you'll come and visit now. I've done a special blinkie for the 4th Birthday Celebrations.

Happy Pink Saturday, and hugs from the UK!

Rebecca! I just had to come back and tell you that I've scrolled down through your blog (I've been a bad blog buddy lately) and saw your beautiful post on your home! OH, it looks like something from a magazine. So gorgeous in every way. You say your kitchen is all torn up - no one would guess seeing your lovely living room and dining room. So so pretty! You really have the touch and I wanted to pop back in and tell you how I enjoyed seeing your pretty home!
Continue being a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Marilyn said...

The booth is sweet, but, I can not get excited about a coat to wear when it's cool! lol I will agree it's cute, but the other day it was 98 degree here in eastern Colorado in MAY. I will be spending the weekend with my two most favorite people and grand-dog, Buster! May we all have a safe weekend. You have FUN next week with Miss K!♥♫

Jen said...

Your booth is gorgeous and very inviting!

Enjoy your time with Ms K


Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Rebecca, this is totally you, and so feminine looking. The shoppers are just going to love buying from you and I'm sure will tell all their friends.
Congratulations, all the hard work has paid off.
Enjoy some quality time with your hubby.

Grace said...

What a gorgeous booth. And you are a better woman than I, because I would be standing there allowing people to look but not touch.

The notion of strangers touching and moving and potentially misplacing or even BREAKING some of those precious things would drive me NUTS.

It is a truly a
"Glossy-Magazine-Photo-Editorial-Worthy" booth.

It makes me want to sip tea from a dainty china cup and contemplate peaceful things.

Well Done!

In Him,

Your booth looks gorgeous! I watched as you started the construction each step I thought this is going to be great.. I wasn't disappointed! Thanks for sharing.

I bet you'll be very busy keeping it full of treasures to sell!
Thanks for visiting me :)
