The Gypsy Paintbrush at Bouckville 2013

Back to Bouckville ... way back in August...
I couldn't wait to visit the booth of my friend Victoria Potter
 who goes by the name The Gypsy Paintbrush.

Vicky is a creative and inspiring girl who always has a large supply of rustic items
 mixed with pretties and feminine treasures.
 In addition, she is a talented artist who adds her own painted pieces
 to her eclectic inventory.

Her interesting displays mix silver pieces, white ironstone, vintage ribbons, colored glass and pretty dishes with zinc containers, advertising pieces and a bit of industrial.
Vicky has a great sense of style and is genius at achieving just the right balance between masculine and feminine elements...
(I love how she re-purposed tiny iron pulleys into unique jewelry pieces.)


Vicky always has beautiful vintage clothes and pretty linens to look through. Last year I found the loveliest antique peach lace dress which hangs in front of a window in my bedroom and casts such a soft romantic light when the afternoon sun shines through.
This year, I couldn't resist a black poufy crinoline petticoat 
which looks pretty amazing on my Victorian cage dress form.



This stunning mirror took center stage in her pretty booth this year.

And, oh those little details that we all love so much.
 This is the bottom of a small box that another customer
 was purchasing in Vicky's booth. I adore this tiny label.

You never know what Vicky will bring to her shows...
...but I have never been disappointed and am always delighted
 with her beautiful and imaginative displays.
You can follow her on FB to find out where she will set up and display her wonderful wares next.

Next up...
...the booth of Colleen Bloom...The Vintage Room!

Thanks so much for all those lovely comments welcoming me back! 
You really know how to make a girl feel good about things :)
