New Booth

I mentioned a while back that my family and I opened a new booth at a local antique mall.  I was going to wait to share photos because we have a little more work to do on it, but since we are "snowed in" (never thought I'd use that term! and, no we aren't really snowed in, more like sleeted (?) in) and I'm fighting a horrible cold and don't feel creative so I thought I'd go ahead and share a few pics with y'all.  This is something I will be doing with my husband and my son, so instead of Flower Child Designs it will be called "Serenity."  We have a few ideas in the works that I hope to share later, but for now I'll share what we have done so far.

Mr. Flower Child helped me build this "wall" using some old bed springs and some old columns I put together from bits and pieces.  He wasn't too keen on the idea at first, but I kept telling him it was going to be fabulous.  I could tell he didn't quite believe me, but when we were done, I said "I'd really like to use this in our house" and what does he say?  Well, Mr. Doubting-His-Wife's-Design-Abilities says "Yeah, wouldn't it make a really cool headboard." Told him it was going to be really cool when we were done.  You would think after spending 25+ billion years with me he would know better...

Isn't this lamp so cool?!  We call it the Frankenstein lamp.

I love these marble lamps!  If we end up not selling our house and I start doing a make-over these just might have to come home with me!  (shhhh!!! Don't tell Mr. Flower Child!)

Here's the backside of the "wall."  And, yes, I know I need to write something on my chalkboard, but at this point I have noticed the time and I needed to rush to the paint store before it closed (yes, I made it there 15 minutes before closing, but luckily the paint guy really likes me!)  Do y'all remember Thelma and Louise?  If not you can read about them here.  I just know that someday someone is going to fall in love with them and just have to take them home with them.  They are very unique and will need someone as unique as they are to love them the way I do!

Well that's it for now.  Like I said, we have some ideas we are working on, but I think we are off to a good start.  

Hope you liked what you saw, and most of all I hope it brought you a little serenity.


P.S.  If you are local and would like to see it in person it is located at the Daphne Antique Galleria (the building across the street from Target with the blue roof, next to Rama Imports).  It is kind of in the middle of the store, but you can ask the front desk to show you Booth TAD (T for Tracy A for Alex and D for Debbie). Thanks!


  1. That bed spring wall WAS fabulous! I'm so glad you let me know that it was your booth that I was blogging about years ago--mystery solved. Little did I know that I would actually know the owner of that funky wall one of these days! So glad I now call you "friend."
