I've always been so inspired by Miss Mustard Seed. Not only is she amazingly talented, but her blog is so authentic and a joy to read, so when she put the call out to do some shopping and socializing in Raleigh this weekend, I was so excited to have the opportunity to meet her and some fellow creative women from the area.
Since the dust from moving has settled a bit, I've been longing to meet some women in the area that share the same creative passions and yesterday fulfilled my wish. There truly is nothing better than chatting with some new friends and junkin'! I got to meet wonderful women that are antique dealers, farmhouse fixer-uppers, crafty moms, and it was good day... Here are some the fellow women that I will hopefully see again out and about in Raleigh:
Rie - Home and Harmony
Fiquet - Farm House to Home
Brittany - Pretty Handy Girl
Tammy - Tattered & Timeless
We met up at the Raleigh Flea Market and each of us found some great treasures. I found a typewriter, some fantastic old metal scoops, an ornate silver set, and a chunky old blue glass bottle. After the flea market, we headed north to Suzanne's Antiques to some more shopping. Being so new to the Raleigh area, I didn't know about Suzanne's. What a cute shopping destination! Here some of the goodies to be had there...
Can you tell that I love architectural salvage? I will definitely be back to Suzanne's. After shopping Suzanne's, a few of us enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Since meeting these ladies, I feel rejuvenated and inspired to continue following my dreams. It was a great day!
