TGIF because the new issue of Flea Market Decor is out and well, you know my mom??? (Fran Thompson Holley/ Frantiques/ supermom/ supergrandma/ junker extra-ordinare that taught me everything I know about thrifting and painting furniture and creating fab living spaces out of trash?) 

The same lady that made my sister a really cute cradle back in 1978 out of a banana crate?
 Well, she has a 16 PAGE SPREAD on their ranch house she designed out of junk galore in the new issue.  Check it here below.  

Oh and if you are in the Dallas area - you don't want to miss her FANTASTIC FRANTIQUES GARAGE SALE tomorrow (4/23/16) on Merrilee Lane, 75214.  Happy Earth Day for the love of recycling junk.  And peace!

Frantiques and I loved every minute of Flea Style last weekend at Fair Park in Dallas.  Here's a shot of our booth the night before the event.  THANK YOU to all of you who came to shop and visit us! Will hopefully see you at the next Dallas Flea Style in November.

Mid Feb Uptown Country Home Happenings

Took another stab at an abstract painting.  The painting shown after it is a recent commission of a family at Disneyland - clearly I am all over the map on what client's commission me to paint!  For more info on my artwork, click here.

Clearly not a professional blog photographer you can see me in the mirror :)

Today was a seats down - furniture in - carseat out day. Or as some like to call it, mother's day out.  Delivered new treasures and fluffed things up at both of my antique malls.
Pics below. 

Also, save the date because the Dallas Flea (now known as Flea Style) is back!  Uptown Country and Frantiques will collaborate again with 3 spaces in a few weeks.

Happy weekend. Love, Jenny
