40099906133I am a crafter.  There I said it.  I love scouring the aisles of craft stores and finding interesting things to do and make.  I have taken a lot of ribbing over the years for this – but I don’t care – it is fun. 

Anyway, one of my favorite sites to troll for craft items is – which is just fun.  The other day I stumbled across this Set of 9 Numbered Wood Pots on Hangers for sale (and on sale) on the site.  I was struck by the fact that had I seen a vintage set of something like this at a tag sale I would have snapped them up in a second.  To discover that you can purchase these new – and in quantity – my mind is swarming with possibilities.

The weather forecasters are calling for the perfect Indian Summer day in New England today – full sunshine and 80 degrees.  It’s a perfect day to take a ride and check out the foliage, pick some apples, or do just about anything.

If you are within a couple of hours of the North Shore of Boston, how about coming to see us at Todd Farm?  Hey, we are up at 4 a.m. to make the drive from our base in New Hampshire – so come see us behind the barn. We will have more of the great vintage buttons and sewing collectibles from my mother’s vast collection, as well as some cool new vintage finds we picked up over the summer.

While you are in the area, one the great fall traditions, the Topsfield Fair is in full swing, just a short drive south of Todd Farm.

For those of you out of the area, I am going to let you in on a big secret…  we are just a few days away from the launch of the Lost Cowboy on-line store – where we will offer all sorts of vintage goodies and affordable works of arts to anybody  anywhere.  Stay tuned!
