Luckett’s Treasure

On Saturday, my husband and I attended the Luckett’s Antique Fair in Leesburg Virginia and the weather  was absolutely beautiful.

The highlight of the fair was meeting Marian, known as  “Miss Mustard Seed”.  It was awesome to meet a blogger in person whose work and creativity I admire so much.   My husband and I  also had the opportunity to talk with Miss Mustard Seeds’ Mom.  Her mother is such a wonderful person whose love and support for her daughter is truly remarkable.  She is very proud of her daughter and rightfully so. 

Marian’s  booth did not disappoint!  She did a beautiful job displaying all the things she has worked so hard on and created for this fair.

I did manage to snatch up the “Farm Fresh Eggs” sign.  I do believe this was the only sign left.   I’m so happy with it.  Now all I have to do is hang it in my kitchen and every time I look at it I will think of Miss Mustard Seed. 


Another find at the fair was an old cabinet door.


I love this old cabinet door…..I wish I had gotten more!  Oh well, maybe next year. 

And two old windows.  I have a few ideas on what I want to do with these three purchases. 


Earlier in the week, Charlie and I managed to go to a Thrift Store in Virginia.  I bought a drop leaf table and a bench.



By the way, I know the bench looks nasty but it doesn’t smell!

I do see potential in both my thrift store purchases.  The table needs a lot of work and the bench needs to be completely reupholstered.   l’ll be sure to post about them when I’m done.  Wish me luck! 


P.S. Tuesday’s Linky Parties I’m linking to:  Linda @ Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words for 2nd Time Around.   Thanks Ladies for hosting such a fun party! 


  1. I am so loving the old cabinet door and the drop leaf table. Great finds!! I look forward to seeing how you transform your finds!

  2. Oh gosh I am so jaelous that you got to see Marian's booth for real and got one of her signs!
    Isn't she amazing!
    Love the old cabinet doors too. Lucky you.

  3. I love what you found at the antique show. It takes a good eye to see the potential in all these treasures. That bench will be fabulous. I think I'd be throwing some hooks on that wonderful cabinet door.
    God bless your son for his service:)

  4. You got to meet Miss Mustard Seed! I read her blog and dream. She does amazing things. Enjoy your sign. Your drop leaf table is a wonderful find. I'm sure you'll have that bench looking great in no time.
