re:Craft & Relic Show Sneak Peek

It shouldn’t be a surprise by now that I have a great love for the arts and supporting artists and their small businesses. In this new world of technology and conveniences I’ve noticed a great resurgence of art, craftsmanship and an over all appreciation for relics from the past. An amazing thing to celebrate and get excited about!

This “art and relic” resurgence is celebrated by a local Wisconsin show, re:Craft & Relic. The curated show is put on a three times a year and includes 150+ artists, junkers and makers who are selling their wares and treasures. This coming weekend (Nov 10 & 11, 2018), I have the privilege to hangout at the show, meet with local artists and shop for some wonderful treasures myself.

3 Wren Street

Business location: Racine, WI

Our family sells vintage and antiques as 3 Wren Street at flea markets, antique malls, vintage pop up events, and even out of our garage! We also sell online and have an Etsy shop.  Our booth spaces are a mix of everything we love – industrial pieces, primitive items, shabby chic finds, classic antiques, and more! We try to bring unique items to each show we sell at, but also bring the “staples” that our repeat customers expect to find. We are in the process of moving from Racine, WI to Door County, WI so we’ll be doing a lot more shows in that area starting next year. People can also find us on Facebook. We post pictures of new finds, links to items listed in our Etsy shop, and our upcoming shows on Facebook.

House Fenway’s Favorite Autumn Pillows

One of my favorite décor addictions? Throw pillows. And why wouldn’t they be? Throw pillows are the easiest and most affordable way of changing the look of a room. Pillows can add a pop of needed color, combine interesting textures, develop layering, interest and even tie a complete room together. This fall, I’ve picked some of my favorite trending pillows. These aren’t pillows you’d generally expect for fall, but with this year’s autumnal color palate swaying toward cool blues and neutral grays, there are some surprising favorites. These picks will add a nice twist to your normal fall décor and help carry you right into Winter.

Pillows2

  1. Cinderella Pumpkin Pillow
  2. Gray Cable Sweater Knit Pillow
  3. “The Snuggle is Real” Pillow
  4. Gray Floral Pillow
  5. White Goat Fur Pillow
  6. Light Gray Burlap Textured Pillow

How do you style throw pillows?

Sofa

Here are a couple tips for styling a sofa:

  1. Always start from the outside of the sofa and work your way inward.
  2. Stack smaller pillows in front of larger ones to add layering
  3. Limit the amount of patterns to prevent your arrangement from looking too busy
  4. Mix and match textures, colors and patterns staying within a color palette to create a cohesive and pleasant grouping
  5. An odd number of pillows is usually more visual appealing.
  6. To add even more interest add an odd shaped pillow (i.e. a round or bolster pillow) in the center of the grouping.
