What a weekend! The Island Retreat and Vintage Market located in Anacortes Washington was an amazing show and truly an inspiration!

Once upon a time there was a cute little $3.00 metal basket...
I just felt like the basket had more potential than a holder for a bunch of linen napkins - which for some reason is my intial thought when I see this kind of item...
I cut the handles off, turned it upside down, wove some grey satin ribbon through the metal edging and attached an antique key and some other cute little charms to add something special to it.
Here it is finished out enjoying some fresh air...
There you have it... a basket of light!
Total cost $5.00 and some left over ribbon and charms!

I think this little gem was an old radio cabinet as the window in the middle had that yucky gold fabric across it. It was so old it ripped off like a cobweb.
I fell in love with this armoire the minute I saw it - I actually bought it at a garage sale at 4 The Love Of Wood.
Kristy had too many projects in waiting and decided to purge a little...which became good news for me!
It has beautiful detailing and I could see the potential in it right away!
I chose Annie Sloan Duck Egg and Old White. Then a combination of clear and dark wax.

Just to give you a little incentive to mark Dec. 3rd on your calendar, the following photos of the September market were taken by Donna of Funky Junk Interiors. She did a wonderful job of catching the essence of the day!
