Preparations are underway...

 It was a busy weekend as we worked hard getting things ready for The Prop Shop Sale starting on Thursday.

 We got up the tent.

 and plotted out several different zones for your shopping pleasure.

 You will not only be able to shop the prop shop which has stocked shelves and pull out drawers filled with fun things like a general store, but there will be garden, furniture, art, and lots of smalls and unique finds spread throughout the yard and my mom's garden room.

 (Sorry it's so dark. I took it at the end of the day yesterday)

 There will also be a section for those of you who love DIY's otherwise known as Do It Yourselfers.

 I have found many things in my forays that I planned to transform and never got around to.

So my lost opportunity could now be your new creation.  I would love to tell you what my vision was when I bought it!

There is still a lot of work ahead in the next few days but I promised you all some photos to whet your appetite and make it worth your while so here are some quick pics I took over the weekend.

I will continue posting photos up until the sale as we make more progress.

 Exhausted but happy with our efforts over the weekend, we zipped up the tent and went home to watch The Grammys.

What I'm getting the most excited about though is getting the opportunity to meet those of you who read my blog and have followed along on many treasure hunting adventures with my mom and I. 

We both can't wait to meet you!

All very exciting and organised...wish I could get my hands on those marriage dome bottoms sigh...wishing you the very best for a most succesful event. Hugs to you both Colette

This looks like an amazing event...treasures hand selected by you...what I would give to shop your props. Only problem is that the rest of my family will be traveling out of town for a board meeting and I will be in LA keeping watch over my sweet mom...but I will be there in spirit cheering you on.

Terri your sale looks like it's going to be absolutely wonderful! I saw so many things I would chase after starting with that fabulous candle holder. Good luck with your sale!

You have been working so hard to make this the perfect event. I know it will be very successful and all your hard work will turn into fun when the sale begins. I will be in wine country that weekend attending a friend's wedding...but I will be cheering you on in spirit.

I'm in heaven with the church candelabra and the big metal R.
Thank goodness I am far away....

Burlap Luxe said...

Love the "R" and its not even a letter that works for me and the house numbers.

Terri are those wine barrel rings/straps? I am in love wish I had a couple they would make for a simple holiday Nordic or French wreath :)

I so wish I were closer, much closer I would be there in a minute with you reserving a few pieces for me ahead of time.

Have a wonderful sale, knowing the pieces inspire.
