As our next show approches I find myself wondering what will be my inspiration to design the entrance of my booth??? This time the theme is "French Flea" and as you probably know I love anything French! Over the past couple weeks I have had my antennas up pretty high to catch whatever little inspiration I could glean from my travels, meaning surfing the internet, usually pinterest and other sites related. I found a couple pictures that gave me some practical ideas to get me started with the design process, interpreting it my own way, and of course that meant pink. This first one gave me the idea for the checked scalloped valence, the bike and the advertisement on the window...
This next picture I found inspiring was a vintage French painting, I was intriged by the details of the little flower shop especially the little basket of fleurs hanging from the iron scroll in the upper corner. I thought I can do that!
I had purchased an iron Paris sign while back, just because I liked it, and now I can give it a purpose. I pulled out the vintage door from my garden and wrote my business advertisement on the window, I found an old bike with great baskets and painted it, and I made a new pink checked scalloped valence. I think its taking on a life of its own and I'm so excited for the progress! I have a few more things to do like fill the baskets on the bike with lavender and I think my front entrance to my booth will almost be done! XO Christie
Hoping to see you there!!!

I did a little revision to my farmhouse painting...I was thinking it just wasn't quite finished, there was more story that needed to be told, my heart and mind was tugging on me to add a little clothesline gently blowing in the wind, so here is my completed little painting. It will be available as a giclee canvas on my website next week www.christierepasy.com XO Christie
