Time Flies!

It seems like we are in a constant whirlwind here...between searching out amazing finds for the shop, keeping the Adjectives Market booth full, managing our "other businesses", connecting with new and unique folk artists, watching over our families...the time flies by!

Here are some new When Pigs Fly additions.....enjoy!

Incredible Wicker Rocker...Love That XXX Pattern

Heavy Metal Floor Lamp...See The Detailed Base?

Metal Egg Carrier, embossed "Bob's Eggs"
Sorry Bob...You Lost It, We Found It!

Mason Jar Lotion/Soap Dispensers

Vintage, Single Pane Windows For Painting,
Stenciling, Mixed Assemblage, Shadow Boxes......

Sweet Soaps, Lotions and Fragrances

And....before we forget....things have been rearranged and shuffled a bit...and there is now a whole other room of When Pigs Fly goodies at the shop!  Hopefully, if all goes as planned, there will be 2 more rooms open by our big Fall Harvest Home Celebration.  It's all so exciting!

Please enjoy this holiday weekend but, let us not forget who we have to thank for it.  Our thoughts and thanks go out to those that have served and to those that are serving in all branches of the military.  We could not do what we do with out you and the unselfishness of your families.  We thank you and we honor you.

Take care, everyone!

Where Does The Time Go??

The last time we talked, we were getting ready for the Big Opening at Adjectives Market....and it was great!  If you can't find what you are looking for at this market, you won't find it anywhere. :)

But....in Mount Dora, things are still rockin'!  We have some great new pieces that we are so excited to share with you.  Okay, okay...stop talking and post the pictures, right?

It's really not fair for us to show you this, but we can't help ourselves.  Isn't this the best weathervane ever?  Well, someone thought so, because about 2 hours after it made its official Pigs Debut, it was gone!  Yep...sold and off to a new home where we know it will be loved and appreciated...Congratulations!

This sweet chair is iron and wood...very industrial looking!  Perfect as a porch seat or next to a small table...not too big, not too small, just right.

Burlap Table Runners!  These sold out within days when we offered them at the beginning of Spring..love, love, love them.

Do you see this paint? The latches? The single shelves?  Old, heart pine shirt cabinet...right out of a General Store! 

But this is what we have been waiting for....the front of the drawers are wood and the sides are tin!  This 24 drawer table top cabinet looks pretty good on that dark table...with that very cool arm lamp next to it.

This is kind of like looking into the shop windows...even if you can't visit us in person, you can see what we've been up to!  But, as Dorothy said, "Things come and go so quickly here"....

Hope you are enjoying the end of Spring and getting ready for an amazing Summer.  We thank you for your continued friendship and support and look forward to sharing all of the When Pigs Fly news with you!

** as we were writing this, we received some difficult news.  one of our dearest friends...someone that has been a supporter of When Pigs Fly since way back when...is facing a serious medical battle.  if you have any extra wishes, please send one her way.  she needs every one she can get right now.  we thank you so very much.**

Sneak Peek of our Adjectives Market booth...hope you like it!

See you soon! Grand Opening is Tuesday at Adjectives Market in Altamonte Springs! Our Mount Dora store was busy this weekend. We are expecting several shipments of new merchandise this week!Whew, busy, busy, busy!

So, Here's Some News....

Let's see...what shall we talk about first?  It has been so much fun to share our great finds with friends, old and new, at the shop in Mount Dora that when a new opportunity knocked...we opened the door and ran in!  Never content to be in just one place for too long, you will now find some of our best wares at our 2nd location...yes, you read it right...we are spreading our pig wings.  :)

Adjectives Market

You will now be able to find us at Adjectives Market, 1215 Altamonte Drive in Altamonte Springs.  Don't worry...we are not leaving Mount Dora...this is just a way to spread the word and allow us to share our special When Pigs Fly style with some new friends.  We are setting everything up this weekend in prep for the Grand Opening on May 1st...what do you think of this??

So, if you are in the southern end of Central FL, and Mount Dora seems far away, please stop by Adjectives Market and see us.  It's going to be a great destination...every decorating style you can think of!

We also have some good news about the Mount Dora location....we are growing!  There will soon be 2 more rooms of When Pigs Fly goodness and we are beyond excited about that.  Even though summer is just getting started, our thoughts are on our big Fall Harvest Home celebration and our Mistletoe Market Winter Open House.  Having this extra space will be so great!  Everything will be official in about 6 weeks, so we will keep you posted on all of that.

Our plates are full and there is so much to do...you just never know where the path will take you.  We try not to think about the outcome too much.  It's best to just go with it....

Dream Big.  Have Faith.  Be Happy.

It Was Great!

What a wonderful event....the Mount Dora "Trash to Treasures" sale just took over the entire downtown area and a good time was had by all!  It was nice to see some familar faces in the shop...and we were stunned to hear some questions about Fall & Halloween...already.  :)

We must thank each and every one of you for stopping by, sending good wishes and for just being in our corner.  It is appreciated more than you will ever know and we are so grateful for all of you.

what we do with what we have"

New Stuff

The Mount Dora Antique & Collectibles Fair was wonderful...and the weather couldn't have been nicer!  Even taking a walk through town to see all of the goodies was enough for some of us "palefaces" to get a bit of color.  Pink cheeks look good on everybody.  :)

Anyway...we met lots of new people and even found a couple of vendors with interesting pieces to add to the shop.  Don't have pics yet, but we are so excited to bring back some of that folk art, kind of funky stuff that we were always lucky enough to have.  We'll let you know.... :)

Just take a peek at this one of a kind porch bench...do you love it, or what?   Let's sit and watch the folks stroll by.....

Enjoy the rest of the week....

What Can we Say?

A fabulous weekend, so many new faces.....what can we say, except Thank You!!  And, lucky for us, Ms. Julie is there to watch over things so we can get out and do a little pickin'!  Now we all know that Mr. Britt has earned the title of "Master Picker", but look at these new prim treasures.....

Big Ol' Salt-Glaze Crock
These are getting tough to find...especially in such good shape! 

Simple, Early Tabletop Desk.
Add a pewter candlestick and a pair of old spectacles....maybe an old journal or ledger.

Very cool old Cutting Board....and the handle is a knife!
See the wood grain?  It 's so pretty.

Absolutely our fave find!
Great old Laundry cart. 
Maybe we've got Spring on our minds, but can't you see this on a porch just filled with flowers?
Love it!!

Next on the agenda...the Mount Dora Antiques, Collectibles and Craft Fair!  Coming up quicker than we can believe.  If you are near, we hope to see you next weekend,
March 24 & 25.

Have a great week.....and always Dream Big!

Did You Know.....

We are having a Tent Sale?  That's right....gotta make some room and this is the best way we know to do it. So......

It's going to be a super weekend in Mt. Dora, we want to enjoy the weather and you will find some good stuff under the tent in our front yard.  It's also Renninger's Antique Fair this weekend so the prim finds will be plentiful!

We know our weekend will be great and we hope yours is, too!  Be happy... :)

Happy to say we had a great weekend...in spite of the rain!  We can't get too upset though...seems like here in Central FL we always need rain, so the showers are welcome.  And, as a bonus, everything looks and smells so clean.

The new issue of FOLK is in!  Have you seen this new magazine?  Beautifully styled and the pictures are so detailed...from scenery to events to yummy recipes. How much do you love that pitcher on the cover?   It's one of those "comfy" magazines..you know, the ones that you can just curl up with?  And the primitive section, found in every issue, has stories and pictures you will love.

Let us know if you would like one...we will be happy to save it for you.  :)

Looks like a beautiful week ahead...keep positive thoughts and enjoy it all!

Something Special

Just had to share this new arrival with you.....isn't it almost perfect?

Early beadboard cupboard from Texas Hill country!  Great finish, wavy glass, kitchen sized.  The flicker candle wreath looks great hanging on the door.

Looks like the weekend is off to a great start...if you are near Mt. Dora, please stop in and say Hi!  If you are too far, have a great couple of days and do something relaxing. :)

And, don't forget to Spring Forward on Sunday morning!

Smells Like Heaven

We are not kidding....the whole shop smells like Heaven!  Or, at least what we hope Heaven smells like.  :)

All of the new candles are in...new fragrances, new sizes...want to smell a warm lemon meringue pie? Try Lemon Curd.  How about roasted corn?  Try Indian Corn.  Love hotcakes and berries?  You got it...Hotcakes and Berries.  These are amazing, long lasting, fragrance filled candles and even if you are a fan of another brand, give one of these a try.  You will love it!

And, look at these burlap Table Toppers....aren't they just the best?  Perfect for an Easter buffet display...so garden-y and fresh.  :)

This is just what came in today....and a little peek at what we are up to at "The Pig"!

Thanks for stopping by.....enjoy the rest of your week.  ~*~
