I found the most perfect end table from Chelsea House. Its foot print is 22”w x 12”d, just the right size for a book or beverage glass. I will use this gem again and again.

One of my very favorite IOD transfers is “Ladies in Waiting”. The 4 beautifully detailed florals can be used in so many ways and by switching out the background paint color you can get an entirely different look. We used Dixie Belle’s “Limeade” on this metal bin. Perfect for your spring projects.

I came across this in my kitchen inspiration file and unfortunately I don’t know who the designer is but kudos to he/she with how they worked the wall design at the peninsula. They could have extended the wall cabinets but instead added a vertical and horizontal beam to frame the kitchen space. The open shelves, repeating the same wood tone as the beam and floors, keeps the space open and interesting showcasing that beautiful glassy wall tile. Your eye just wants to linger there before taking in the rest of the space.

New soft home furnishings now available in-store and on-line. Have you ever felt a cotton Turkish throw? Super soft and they get softer thru washings. And we love the simple natural beauty of these hand printed cotton African mud cloth pillows.

Revisiting my photos from 2021, if you are ever in Taos NM be sure you visit the Fechin House Museum. The works of Nicolai Fechin, 1881-1955 will blow you away. He was a woodcarver, furniture maker, architect, fine art frame maker, interior designer, painter and photographer and excelled at all. All can be seen at his house and gallery. The man was never idle.

I am the one in a tour group that falls way behind and has to run to catch up only to fall behind again. There’s always something that has caught my eye and requires lingering. These oak wood floors in a historic tavern, the beautiful hand woven marsh grass mats made by indigenous Indians, and the textures and colors of the homes of the early settlers in Virginia. While all of these date back hundreds of years they are relevant in our design styles today.

I probably took 100
photos of gorgeous decorated doorways here in Colonial Williamsburg, but these two inspired me the most. Of course the facades themselves are stunning, the millwork on the black door is particularly striking.

Christmas growing up meant a week long visit from my grandmother. She would travel by train from Stamford, Connecticut to Union Station in Wash DC. Her visits included days of baking and needlework. Channeling my grandmother this Christmas morning with these hand stitched napkins she made for us. I think she would be pleased to see after all these years we still love and use them.

Merry Christmas 🎄

It was the hope the homeowner would be moved into their renovated house by Christmas but with contractors out sick, shipping delays and the usual change orders that are always a part of a giant reno, January will be hopeful. In the meantime I’m taking pleasure in seeing all the finishing materials go in, like this Hickory wood floor, stone fireplace surround and the Ming Mosaic tile going in the primary bath.

These little houses are tricky to make. I had a friend over to make these with because wine and giggles are needed. To help save time, we picked up a couple of $8 kits at Lidl rather than baking our own - swipe to see the box. It came with all the decorations but I just wanted the gingerbread cut outs and icing. Be prepared for broken pieces, we were not. 😑 While Royal Icing is traditionally used to glue and embellish, unless you’re a wizard at piping without making a glopping mess, we found that white glue sticks and white paint work best, if you don’t plan on eating them. And finally, after spending all that time on fabrication and decoration, try not to drop one on the floor. That is when the giggles turned into ROTFL 🤪

One of the hardest things about closing my storefront last week is knowing that many of you would have a hard time finding products that you were accustomed to purchasing. To all my DIY and Iron Orchid Designs lovers, here is some great news for you. I reached out to VanEch Studio in Occoquan and she has agreed to stock these products for you. Isn't that amazing???? So, if you'd like to head on over to VanEch Studio, here is the address: 125 Mill St # 5, Occoquan, VA Hope you all have an amazing day!
From sunrise to sunset 🌅, the day at the The Old Lucketts Store Spring Market Goes Fall was awesome! Customers? You rocked and our feet hurt! We actually have to restock tomorrow. Friends? So happy to see you all and so sad I didn’t get pics... it was non-stop! But my heart is full that you came to say hi ... and buy. Colleagues in the biz who are so supportive and we feel like besties ? Again, so many stopped by but I managed to grab a pic of VanEch Studio and Cherry Lane Antiques ! Thank you ladies. And finally, before the sun sets, Mr Rust and Refind and I always try to put our feet up, grab a beer, talk about the day, and laugh and be silly and share beers with Lucketts store peeps! These markets are money makers for us... yes!, but they are how we meet so many other vendors and share in mutual support ... and beer and bubbles! Thank you everyone!. . Pics of the #rustandrefindartisanmarket tomorrow... cuz again... too busy and too tired!! The gates open from 10:00 -5:00 at the Clarke County Fairgrounds! Come see us and the other coolness in Berryville!. . . Forever & Always Vintage KatieDid Designs Vintage Revival Design Co.

New wall, new vignette! So excited about this wall! Inspired by Niki VanEch Studio , used #pureandoriginalpaint to create this stone look wall in the color of Soft Taupe (which is a greige imho). Swipe ⬅️ to see more of the wall). We are ready for our #rustandrefindartisanmarket celebration this weekend! Check out the new inventory....antique pine dresser, architectural pieces, and more. Come see us! @ Rust and Refind
Warning: You cannot go to Niki’s shop VanEch Studio and buy just O̶n̶e̶ ̶t̶w̶o̶ three things! Niki had hosted a recent Facebook Live sale and I wanted one of her beach bags, which led to buying coasters (see my stories) cuz one can never have too many coasters (it’s like pillows!), and then Mr. Rust and Refind had to have a soap, and a few other goodies. I love her, and her shop! Oh, and the other reason? See her walls behind us in the photo? She had posted about venetian plastering them earlier with Pure and Original paint (she used to be a retailer but sadly, no longer sells the paint). Having done four rooms myself at home in Venetian Plaster, I wanted to paint one of our shop walls like hers...she inspired me! The gray is perfect and I was lucky enough to grab a gallon she had! Another day, another project...because we can’t have too many of those either! Hah. Thanks Niki.
