A Day Late

I wanted to link up with Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday  so bad!!!
As usual I'm a day late & a dollar short.
I've  been spending every free minute working on my lessons for Artful Pages 4 Artists/4 Ways.
Here's a peek at my class, Altered Fabric Books.

My class begins Sunday,
Oh well Debra, I'm linking up anyway!
Last week Lori & I went to Canton, it was AMAZING!

It was my first time to see her new location.


I didn't know where to look next.
Sensory overload.

Every corner,
every nook & cranny.

was perfection.
It's like French farmhouse,

meets industrial chic!
Love this!
What a great new way to use bed springs.

And the salvage!
It's amazing how she has elevated a regular store front,
into a thing of beauty!

Just as I gained my composure....

we landed here!
Girls Gone Junkin, what a great place to land.

Such great displays,
Such great stuff!

Deidra, Cathy & the girls are such sweeties too!
I loved this banner.

Lori loved this jacket, her van was loaded up so tight by the end of the day. We looked like the Beverly Hillbillies!
Whew, I'm exhausted from uploading photos. I'll save my haul for the next post. 
 Hope you have a great weekend.
 We're heading out of town for spring break.  Yeah! Going camping in hill country!

Hi Lisa,
Wow what wonderful places to shop! I want to go! I can't wait to see what you brought home. I love that jacket too!
Enjoy your camping trip!

Wow, Wow!! What a great place to shop. I can't compose myself. Great job on your art work. You certainly motivated me to do more collage. Thanks,
xxx Liz

Claudia said...

Have a great time camping, Lisa!

Oh, Canton. Too far away for this girl but someday....

You'll have to show us what you bought, pretty please?


Margaret Garrood said...

You look like you had a great time- what a fantastic place. I can't wait to start your workshop- your sample is so beautiful!

Oh my GOODNESS! I think I need to make a pilgrimage to see all that beauty with my own eyes.

LuLu Kellogg said...

I love the Canton pics and I want to go so bad...maybe this year before it gets too hot! Thanx so much for sharing, and I love the jacket. Hope she got it. Tiff

Kimberly Jones said...

Stunning! I am just beside myself with amazement at these gorgeous places! Thanks so much for sharing!

Vintage Market Place said...

I think I have gone blind or crossed from the beauty and trying to see each and every little thing.
I think I would have just been walking in circles not knowing what to land on.
Whoosh, that is a lot of stuff to take in.

Riki Schumacher said...

LOVE all the photos, wish I could reach out and touch everything! Riki

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Lisa, I just love your creation for the Artful Pages class. Such joy, you know :-).
What gorgeous places to shop! I hadn't heard about Canton and googled it. The tradition of these First Monday Trade Days sounds interesting. I learned that they swapped for instance dogs and donkeys on those days in former times. Well, I guess I prefer the modern version :-). Besides all the neutral colored beautiful items, I also love the pink chandelier in the entrance of "Girls Gone Junkin". It will be fun to see what treasures you brought home.
Enjoy the spring break and have a great camping trip, sweetie!
Hugs to you,

Dorthe said...

Oh Lisa, this calls for more time, than the little sweet girl can give me now, so I will be back to a much more closer look- you photoes are GORGEUS,FANTASTIC-AND FULL OF BEAUTY-
cAN`T wait till time for your class, the book looks divine, dear.
And have a very wonderfull camping, with your family, dear friend.
Big hug,Dorthe

Hi Lisa! What a lovely surprise this morning, thank you! It was so nice to meet you and of course I always love to see Lori!

Glad you visited GGJ too....great photos!

Hope to see you again soon!

Sweet Old Vintage said...

Oh my... the pics are quite lovely as my eyes danced everywhere to see all the lovely objects and treasures...

Lisa, I was gonna ask you if you took your checkbook or credit card and then you used the word "haul" so I guess you did! LOL! Oh...I can see how some damage would occur to the bottom line in these photos!! Such inspiration!'s your book!!!
Hugs, Diane

Storybook Woods said...

Oh wow, great stores. I feel like I went on a little mini shopping trip without leaving my home or spending money ;-)

Vicki said...

Oh my!! Both places are amazing! I'm so far behind on Artful pages. Work and kids sports happened to explode at the same time in past three weeks. I'm glad I can follow at my own pace. SO looking forward to your project and having time to read and play.

Angela said...

What beautiful pictures! Thank you for showing us this wonderful shop.
I love every nook and cranny.

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Thanks for sharing and happy trails!

June said...

Wow Lisa! I love these shops!!! I have such a hard time using restraint in shops like this. Then I go through buyer's remorse. I'm pretty sure sure if I went in there I would never recover.hehe

I love your gorgeous art page! You certainly are 'da bomb when it comes to collage!

I couldn't believe how gorgeous your altered bag you made in the previous post was. So worth dipping into the good goods!!!!
sending love...

karen hess jewelry said...

What a fabulous trip!!! I think I'd just want to fall into it all and absorb it!! Fantastic ideas for decor!

alveen said...

Great pics. Would love to visit Girls Gone Junkin.
Enjoy your break!

Thank you for taking to thime to share such beautiful photos with us! I'll be back to drool some more!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Hey Girlie, wow, wish I was with you all on that shopping trip. What great displays and goodies, you'd have had to drag me out of there. Hope Lori bought that jacket!! Great pics, Lisa, thanks so much for linking up, I'd love to feature your post next week on VIF. Thanks for taking the time to join the party!!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Lisa, so glad you stopped by for a visit.... I really enjoyed meeting you too, and getting to visit with you and Lori! Hope y'all make it back next month... the next few months should be really good months to shop, before the weather get's to hot! Oh and don't worry about your post, I'm really glad your not using that picture, I just don't like any of my pictures anymore! Your pictures of the store turned out wonderful. Next time you come to Canton bring your material and I will get you a purse put together!!!
hugs~~~ Daphne

Karen said...

I'm jealous! Especially, when, this time of year, sales aren't plentiful enough, rain is plentiful enough, and you read blogs that show all the wonderful stuff other people are finding lol. But spring is coming, so I'll just keep on admiring. Actually, I'm thankful you share, just to keep us all inspired!

Bella's Rose Cottage said...

Hi Lisa,
Your art project is beautiful, well worth being a bit late for:-)
Lucky you on the fun shopping trip, amazing stores:-)

Karen Valentine said...

OMG!!! I am drooling all over the place over here!!! What amazing shops! Lucky you!! I wonder if there will be time to visit those shops while I'm there???
I'm so excited, it's finally your week for the 4artists4ways! Yeah!!!!
Have an awesome week my friend!

Erica said...

Looks like a great weekend!!! I've been to Girls Gone Junkin a lot, but haven't seen Laurie Anna's before. Now I have another stop to check out next time. Is it actually in the Canton flea market area, or an outside shop?

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Dreaming of Vintage said...

I think I've died and gone to heaven. What a gorgeous store. I would literally spend hours in that store!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Oh girl, what a fabulous shop!

I want it all!!!!!


Diane said...

Yep! I would have sensory overload if I EVER went to Canton...Just never have! And, I love that jacket~I am smitten!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

FUN! Lots of eye candy and good inspiration!

Vicki Boster said...

Lisa- you are killing me with these gorgeous pictures- they are to die for! Such inspirations- you should publish these photos in a collection. You have great talentscas a photographer also!

Good luck with your new and latest class. It sure sounds like a lot of fun!

Lynn Stevens said...

I think I'd have died and gone to Heaven. Swoon.....

Snugglebug Blessings said...

Wow! These shops look like a place I would move in and never leave. So madly inlove with everything! I just love crystal and that table setting is to die for. You gals must have had such fun. Wish it were closer to where I live as I would shop there too! God bless.
