Hanging Vintage Scale and High Point Market Tidbits

It’s been a whirlwind these past several days…

…..I had the great opportunity to attend the High Point Market in High Point, North Carolina….

……….where I had a fantastic time with some terrific fellow blogger friends.

I want to thank Amy for coordinating this incredible event.

So back to “normal” or something close to that!


There’s a new scale in the sunroom….I found it at Melville Trading Company in Mebane, NC

It was a fantastic deal at $42.00 and it also came with a zinc scoop!


When I saw this scale, I knew exactly where I wanted to hang it1



As many of you already know, I had a houseguest for the High Point Market…

…..and she brought me wonderful gifts that were perfect for the sunroom!


They went perfectly with the color of the frame of the scale!!


Kim gave me these great vintage garden tools!


Just love the patina and color!





And here we are at the High Point Market…

From left to right:

Suzy (Worthing Court), ME, Rhoda (Southern Hospitality), Amy (Atta Girl Says), Kim (Savvy Southern Style),

…..Kristen (Sophia’s Decor) and Courtney (FrenchCountry Cottage)

I have met everyone previously with the exception of Courtney…

…..this group was so much fun to be with!!

Barb with The Everyday Home was part of our group…her dad was taken ill and she went home to be with him.


And talking about fun…here is Kim and Kristen…Kristen adoring and petting the cow…

…..Did you know that Kristen was the “Dairy Princess”…? and she spent her childhood living on a dairy farm….

……….and you all pretty much know how much Kim loves cows.


There were many things at the Market that were definitely inspired by bloggers…

…..such as yard stick items.

I so love these yard stick lanterns…Need to try my hand at this!


We also went and shopped stores in the town of High Point…they were incredible, and so were the prices!

These olive buckets were in great abundance.


And guess who was shopping at the same place that we were?!!

…..Michael Groover..Paula Dean’s hubby…He was so nice and some of us were able to get pictures with him!

……….Paula was in the truck waiting for Michael…She was one of the keynote speakers at the Market.

I had the most wonderful experience and I so look forward to the next Market!

Thanks for visiting me and have a beautiful day!!

  1. Wow! What a great time, Shirley. Wish I could have been there! Did Haven already come and go, or is that next month? My trips are limited, right now, as I get the shop and myself into a routine. I’ve been to a couple of West coast shows, but know that High Point and the Atlanta market are the creme de la creme!
    I hope Barb’s dad is doing ok. Such a tough time!
    Take care,

    I love the scale and the garden tools you received from your friend. You are bringing the outdoors into that sunroom, and what could be better than that! Sounds like a fun day with all of your friends, and what a bonus to see a celeb! I love your blog.

    Your sunroom is looking very sunny and “gardeny” (if that’s a word)and most of all, always cheery, like you! Great buy on that scale, too. Can’t wait to sit with you and sip a glass of wine. Glad you had a great time with your fellow bloggers at High Point.

  12. I had so much fun at market with you and everyone else, Shirley! It was such a whirlwind – I can’t believe that it’s over (although my feet are glad). I wish I had seen those yardstick lanterns. What a great idea. Love the scale. What an awesome find and it looks great in your sunroom.

  15. The hanging scale looks perfect in your sun room, and the vintage gardening tools are so neat. I can’t believe you saw Michael Groover, and that Paula was waiting in the truck for him. Did you get to hear her presentation?
