Spring Tag Sale Dates

It may still look and feel very much like winter around here, but we're thinking spring! And that can only mean one thing, time for another tag sale.
 
 
Our local readers have been asking for dates, so here you go ...
 
"Elizabeth & Co. Spring Vintage Tag Sale"
 
Wednesday, March 26th from 3 PM to 7 PM
Friday, March 28th from 9 AM to 5 PM
Saturday, March 29th from 9 AM to 4 PM

438 East Main Street
Westminster, MD 21157
 
 
And I know I've said it before, but it's absolutely true ... the very best part of what we do is the interaction with out customers. And we love hearing from you between sales too. Recently, a sweet friend and customer stopped by to purchase a desk for her daughter. (Yes, we are open by appointment if you are looking for something specific between sales.) Just a few hours later, I received this picture and a report that her daughter is thrilled with her new desk!
 
  
And another customer shared this photo of a centerpiece that she created with a pretty posey jar she purchased from us. And check out her clever idea of putting a battery operated tea light under a vintage glass insulator for some soft lighting!

 

We so appreciate your support and enthusiasm! It really is because of you that we get to share our passion for all things vintage and creative. Can't wait to see you in March!
 
Now this snow better melt soon, so we can get busy painting!

Be Inspired Features and Link Party #101

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!
 
Elizabeth and Co.

In addition to today's features, there were a ton of really wonderful Top 10 posts at the party last week. If you have a chance, I suggest you go back and take a look!
 
Meet Bernadette from White Cottage Boutique. She is just stunning in navy blue!


Over the weekend, Megan and I were talking about how maybe navy blue could have been (should have been) the Pantone color of the year.  Upcycled Treasures shared a post filled with lovely images using radiant orchid. Not sure it really works in my house, but if a big vase of lilacs qualify, then count me in!


Deb from Twice Nice used the frosty weather as inspiration for the beautiful vintage chest on chest dresser with a hand-painted detail!


Gail from My Repurposed Life just might be the queen of turning headboards into benches. This time around, she shared a wonderful tutorial for making a corner headboard bench!


I love the simplicity of this DIY sofa table from Urbane Jane!


Jamie from Anderson & Grant beautifully transformed thrift store glass vases into candlesticks with a little paint and sandpaper. Don't you love when a simple idea knocks your socks off?

 
Debbie from Painted Therapy shared her method of painting hardware. Sometimes a girl has to get creative!
 
  
Looking for a special treat for your Valentine? You might want to try these Easy Homemade Truffles from Sarah at Linley House!
Aren't they gorgeous?
