coming home with vintage storage

We didn't purchase anything in the photos of the earlier post. Oh, wait... I did get two spools of wool! What we mostly brought home was all about storage. My mother doesn't have a closet upstairs in the barn. I have a studio exploding with bits of everything. We were so inspired by the old industrial remnains from a time long ago. A couple of crates and some amazing factory racks on wheels (from the the early days of the shoe industry) made us very happy.
Can't wait to work on tidying up. I have never given you a true studio tour... hoping this magic rack, mine is the big one, will aid my fabric storage situation and make it photo-worthy. We also carefully chose a few beautiful odds and ends, including several of these!

My mom and I selected a couple of antique, hand-carved, teak wood blocks from India. We had such a hard time choosing... the photo only shows 1/3 of the display. Can't wait to try them out on linen! I also have some nice ideas for some wonderful vintage fabric I couldn't resist for my shop. More on all of this when I get back to updating that said shop... If you 'd like to see more photos from Madison Bouckville, check out this flickr set I just created. Pin It

  10. Oh Maya,
    No doubt that you and your lovely mother had a field day! The pictures of the event are exquisite. Makes me want to fly down next year from SFO to attend the event myself! And I will make sure to bring a spanish handheld fan. Actually, I just might find one there at the flea market!
