Sled Love Affair

This summer I scored three antique Davos sleds (or sledges) and couldn't wait to get them out for your winter decorating. Yesterday all three went to the Grand View Mercantile waiting to find their new homes. (You won't find the sleds on the Mercantile website as they are well under $200 each and won't last that long.) 

Holiday Gallery Hop in the Short North is THIS SATURDAY! 

The Mercantile is all gussied up and will be open until 10pm. With a possible ten inches of snow it's going to be an absolutely beautiful evening to walk the shops and restaurants and get your shopping going in a snowy, festive wonderland!

I found several pictures of antique Davos sleds on pinterest to share with you. . .see all my pinterest boards right here: urban farmhouse pinterest

Some uber cool finds...gearing up for the Country Living Magazine Fair in Columbus, Ohio

Things are in full swing here while I gear up inventory (and myself) for the Country Living Magazine Fair. Here's a sneak peek at two signature urban farmhouse style items I'm bringing.
Will I see you there?

Who doesn't love a farm table? Especially one that is AMAZING as this one? At some point in her life the poor dear had been painted an ugly high gloss brown and yellow. So I had er stripped back to her raw beauty.

The top is tongue and groove. On the left is raw and on the right is with a coat of hand rubbed clear wax.

The edge of the table was finished with mitered one inch half round. There was only one original piece left so I cut four new pieces and nailed them on. My Granddad, who was a finish carpenter, would be very proud. When I walk in any lumber yard he is the first thought in my head. Lumber yards smell just like him or is it vice versa?

You all know me and my affinity for urns. I stumbled on this gorgeous pair of monumental Kramer Brothers Floral No. 1 just in time for the fair. If you were me what would you fill them with for the fair? I'm going very simple and classic and making a giant moss ball for each one. Like the one in the last picture which is from Better Homes & Gardens. That way the urn will be the focal point rather than the arrangement.
