Dreaming of displays
Next to my love for digging for “junque” and discovering unusual objects out of the piles of discarded items, I dream of creating displays. My friends at The Seed Box Designs have inspired me to continually improve on my displays at the shows I set up at. In November I had the opportunity to assist Meloney in merchandising the store Homepieces in McKinney, Texas. It was a huge treat for me to watch Meloney transform this lovely shop for the Holidays!
Side note: I fell in love with McKinney, Texas. McKinney has a wonderful downtown filled with amazing shops like Homepieces.
I have learned so much from Brian and Meloney! Brian and Meloney create award winning displays at the Dallas Market Vintage Home. They are always a crowd favorite at Urban Market and Texas Antiques Week. In addition to transforming discarded “junk” into unique items with functional design and offering custom design fabrications, this creative couple have added more services to their design business; traveling across the United States merchandising for companies like Park Hill Collections, E. Barrett General Store and Leftovers.
Flying The Coop to Vegas
I could have not predicted this bend in the road…
Thanks to my good friends at the Seed Box Designs, I am so excited to have the opportunity to work for Creative Coop. I’ll will take flight on January 3 to Las Vegas to help merchandise their market show room! I hope to make my friends proud!
This is uncharted territory for me. I am both excited and nervous for the new challenge. I am a hard worker and plan to give it my all. I knew this year would offer bends in the road, but had no idea that it would happen as soon as the first week in January.
Life is a journey
Have no fear, I am not forsaking my love for junque! I will continue picking and offering my finds at my favorite shows!
At the same time, I will enjoy the unexpected bends in the road. I truly believe that opportunities present themselves when you allow yourself to be open to the journey.
Fly Free in 2014
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. Fly free!
I hope that you find yourself flying free in 2014. What passions excite you? What will you pursue this year that you haven’t in the past? It doesn’t have to be a monumental expedition. Simply allow yourself to explore and be open to unexpected bends in the road.
Happy New Year!
And the birds fluttered around her writing “YES” in the sky!
