 Purchased small cottage in Vancouver and plan to blog the remodel.

 

Lots to do! Starting with paint and a new garage roof. More pictures to come.

Almost done with getting the home on the market!!!!


I am so impressed with the amount of work the kids have put in on this house. Stay tuned for pictures of the yard and rest of this great house!

Staged to sell...

So far the dining room on Glen's daughter's former home is ready for listing.
It is hard for a collector like me to stay so simple, but now I  want to move in!

We're going to need a bigger window...

Welcome to Wine Country at Camas Antiques!








 The mostest bestest piece in the window, Glen's wine cabinet made from an antique crank record player! It's lit inside so everything sparkles.

Meet Cora!

She is our new Victorian Acme dress form,
 and you may see her at Monticello Antique Marketplace...
Along with...
this fabulous farm hand coffee and hot water dispenser, designed to sit on a wood stove.

We also re-did the back wall with movie props and rustic signs.....



and spiffed up the baker's rack!

In honor of Barn House weekend, we're ready for browsers who may wander South to Portland.

garage sale fixture

We picked this up today at a garage sale for $4 and by tonight, Glen had it polished, wired and up in the great room. Aged brass, art deco with nickel sockets!

New original lighting!



Glen found these antique white glass shades on San Juan Island and added vintage fixtures and a khaki-colored twisted wire.

 These industrial pendants are so cute and under $70 each.
 This was an Industrial iron cage, never for the birds!
















And this newer one with bubbled glass has a sort of nautical look

Let's go GLAMPING!

 Gourmet s'mores, anyone?
Introducing the new small window at Camas Antiques. In honor of the recent trend to camp in luxury (glamour camping, or "glamping"), we did a feminine window which represents looking out from inside a tent with romantic amenities.

Roll out the barrel or, in this case, keg...



This stunning old keg from 1913 is now at our space at Monticello Antiques. It makes a great lamp table!



 We also added a bit of my Native American collection (some of it not shown) and some Industrial desk lights!
