A Vintage Farm Sale!

If, like me, treasure hunting is the butter to your bread, the tartar to your taters and the tabasco to your taco, then you're going to love this news!  The Cowichan Valley can now anticipate its second annual BEST vintage farm sale ever!  The lovely Kiona of Maven Creations and Mikone Farm will be hosting an amazing one-day event on August 25th, at which you can find some of the finest vintage goods, home decor creations and home-grown goodies!  Highberry Dew will be debuting its first home decor show booth, in collaboration with the amazing talents of Erika of Element Photography!  You can't miss this!  Come to have a chat and experience the infectious laughs of some of the most enthusiastic and stylish women to carve a niche in the local design and salvage community!  Last year I attended the Mikone Sale, as a shopper, and found some of my favourite home decor pieces - fuschia mercury glass baubles for the Christmas tree, wee treasures to lay about on a coffee table, along with a set of stunning "copas" to hold that fine splash of summer wine!  With the number of vendor booths reaching the high teens, you won't be going home empty handed!  Come shop with us!  And to get you all revved up and ready to hunt, here are some images from our home - a demonstration of how you can use high and low in home decor.  In each image there is AT LEAST one item that is a favorite vintage treasure of mine!  Stay tuned while we prepare and share for this fun event!

A set of vintage children's wooden skies add a chalet feel to a Holiday vignette - especially when you throw in some pine boughs and a Woolrich blanky!

An antique school slate had my name all over it!  When teamed up with something as flashy as this brewer, the combo is fail-proof!  Another fail-proof combo: bagels and coffee for breaky!

Nothing says "someone makes this their home" like a stack of old books.  Soup tureens make a grand statement when used to nestle Paper Whites, and flash cards can be used in many creative ways.  This strand now graces the nursary of a sweet little man who will one day grow up to catch some fine, fine fish.  Cascading from a vintage fishing pole, they make a lovely drifting mobile to sooth his sleepy little eyes.

Fragments of printed fabric are eye candy and can also offer an explosion of creative options!

Sometimes the oddest chunks of ornate trim can hold the most possibility!
