and that is how I feel about the item I have now found to complete the vintage shop I hope to open up in the following year.............
This old screen door will be the last thing I add to the shop...............after I have moved every thing in and out. I have been in search of an old screen door that looked as if it might have come off of an old farm house..........I have been searching for a long time.
This weekend, I found just the right one! The screen is still in perfect condition and it has the perfect rusted patina to it.
It has a wonderful wood panel at the bottom, and I love the weathered paint. I am planning on keeping the paint as is, and then painting some kind of floral picture onto it.
What really caught my heart was this small wooden panel and small screen panel in the middle.
I love the bent handle. I plan to clean the door up, maybe do a little paint touch up here and there, but I really want to keep that vintage worn look to it.
What do you think??
I have an incredible amount of vintage dishware, ready to sell. This set of dishes, I found in a shop, just like this.........stashed half hazardly in a box.
I got them home, delighted to find no breaks or chips! I don't even think these were ever used. These are from the Paden City Pottery Company , Old Rose Design from the 1950's. A while back it would have been hard for me to decide to sell these, however, I am getting really excited about my shop and want to have lots of things like this to sell.
I also have a lot of depression glassware...........I love this stuff..........
I have also accumulated a good amount of vintage linens...........
many with beautiful cut work
and in un- used condition.
Of course, I will be selling my own hand embroidery.................
and I am designing a lot of it in vintage style to sell as accessories to the dishware.
I am also going to have my cement creations and garden things to sell outside of the shop.

I found a wonderful vintage table like the one in the photo above............
mine is yellow...........I forgot to take a good photo..........an now it is stored away until I can get back to it. It will be in the center of my shop with one of my hand embroidered tablecloths and the rose dishes on top .
So once the vintage door is attached,..........."my frosting" for the shop............
hopefully, it will be opening back and forth with visitors.
Also, this week, I have posted a wonderful potato side dish recipe on my cooking blog.
These are Cheese and Herb Potato Fans.
I made them to go with grilled steak one night.
They are so delicious!

Or have you ever dreamed of owning a shop?
What kind of shop is it?
Was it or is it a good experience??
I would love to hear!
