A new look for Sew Junie!

I have a big hug to all of you for following along with my Camp S’more Series. It was a whole lot of fun! I couldn’t have done it without the support of Ink and Arrow Fabrics, my lovely sponsor! My Sew Junie camper is my little she shed of sorts. I use it as a craft, sewing, and art studio when I want to run away from home. Sew Junie is a great place to sit and embroider (and nap). I recently found a few travel pennants, both old and new, are super fab in my camper! I’d love to have one from every city and/or that I’ve lived in. Only 6, or 7 to go. I love it when people gift me junk! This sweet little yellow shelf was passed down to me from my BNF (best neighbor friend), Janet! Someday I’ll take off the contact paper and paint it up until then I’ll enjoy its very shabby self. My camper came with the original table, but I keep it stored in our …

Collecting Chickens

It’s not a very extensive collection as collections go, but it’s one of my favorites. As I mentioned in my last post, Chicken Obsessed, I love me some chickens! I’ve recently looked everywhere for more. Today I thought that I show off my little chicks and roosters! This gal is my all time favorite. I had seen it at one of my favorite antique shops in the Lakeside neighborhood of Richmond, VA. It was during my hubbies layoff, and I had no business buying anything that wasn’t food at the time. But, come on! I needed a little joy too, so I went back and bought her up. When I started hunting for my chickens, I found most of them on the little red shelves that hang above the counter that divides my kitchen and dining room. There you will find this beautiful art card from JBS Mercantile; Jenni has them in stock in her Etsy shop in case you need one too! Of course, I have a nesting milk glass hen. I’m pretty sure …

Country Living Feature!

  I’m thrilled that Country Living Magazine shared my tray wall in the July/August issue. How cool is that? What an honor to be apart of the Country from Coast to Coast issue! This is a photo of the tray wall from before I painted my dining room white. I can’t wait to get them back up on the wall, I have so many new ones to show off! To hang the trays I use traditional plate hangers and cool adhesive disc hangers (LOVE). The trickiest part it to make sure that the disc is centered up with the image on the front of the tray. I use washie tape to mark the center of the image, making sure that the tape wraps onto the back of the tray. Happy Wednesday peeps, see you on Instagram! Kelly @TheModernJune
