Honoring a young HERO !

To bring awareness to Breast Cancer awareness month Three French Hens and The Roost are participating in project


A young lady with Oohlala Furniture on facebook began this movement and asked anyone who painted furniture to join in. As participants paint a piece of furniture pink they then place it up for auction. The highest bidder receives the pink treasure and the money raised goes to the charity of your choice in the fight to conquer cancer once and for all.

  My mother battled that monster and we knew right away we wanted to participate in this brilliant idea.
We have chosen to dedicate our sweet french pink cabinet to a young lady from Murfreesboro Tennessee named TAY FILORIMO.

Tay is a precious young lady that should not have to be fighting an adults illness but is doing so with great courage and determination. Her motto is--CANCER WILL NOT STRIKE HER OUT !! Very fitting for a tough young softball player !
We will donate the highest bid to Tay.

     The bid is open--
come by the store and place a bid--
email a bid--
give us a call with a bid

   Let's make this the best....just like Tay !

Ahhhh Bella Rustica--what a sale to remember !!

                                                    How does one describe
                                                      BELLA RUSTICA ???

  First I must tell a little story.
 A couple of years ago I was sitting at the desk/counter at Three French Hens when through the door from the lobby walks in an attractive lady dawning her beautiful auburn hair and bright smile. WELCOME I announced as I do to everyone that honors us by visiting our shops.
She stands there in a silent look of sort of bewilderment. 
 I ask "are you out looking for anything in particular"?
She responds with a "I have been looking for this place for a while". Thinking she had been lost I apologized and said I thought we were rather easy to find. NO silly--that is not what she meant at all. Her response--"no no-I have not been lost-I mean I have been looking for a while for a shop that "gets it". 
 A shop that fulfilled her need for creativity--for repurposing great old vintage items-a shop that loved aged finishes and respected rust- that put as much heart and soul on the display of their treasures as anything else.
     The next thing I know I am in a big ole conversation with a kindred spirit. My new friend had recently moved back to Tennessee from Texas. We talk about Round Top--we talk about great barn sales and then my new friend poses the challenge....we need to have a Barn Sale here !! OMG--would that ever be the best?!!  I read about these wonderful events on blogs-I drool over the photos-I dream of meeting The Barn House Boys-I fantasize about getting Heather Bullards autograph-etc etc.

   Have you guessed yet who my new friend is?????

YEP--that precious smile on the right is my wonderful friend Linda Lindley. That woman that walked through Three French Hens door a couple of years ago that had a vision.
A vision that was INCREDIBLE !
She was such an inspiring leader.
AND....that other beautiful smile on the left belongs to Art Woods.
Art also works for AGAPE and to say he was a huge help is such an understatement.
He worked for EVERYONE ! Willingly-with loving heart-true passion and diligent determination to make this first Barn Sale the best for everyone.
These two faces ARE the reason Bella Rustica was
The sign of a successful show is when numerous people ask--
"how many years has the show been going on"?
Amazement filled their faces when we would respond-this is a first !
We certainly hope the first of many more to come.

   So now come with me-
let me take you to BELLA RUSTICA

( our fearless leader -Linda Lindley is oh so talented herself. Here is the beautiful re-purposed footboard painted to become our Welcome sign)

Linda borrowed this sweet ole dresser from the yard at The Roost.
What magic she created !

      Entering the Big Tent filled with abounding talent...lets go see ! 
 Isn't the "pink" bike to the left awesome..another treasure from the yard at
The Roost.

Bella Vintage Designs

SassyTrash-- a blogger I have admired for some
 time. Her merchandise just blows me away. 

a sweet young woman that designs gorgeous jewelry  who has had her designs purchased by Anthropology

Jenni Bowlins space was filled with vintage yumminess !

Coffee Bag Coutoure

Kim Hanaeur-designer of fabulous repurposed jewelry

Brenda from Gypsy Moon
Brenda owns a sweet store in Watertown Tennessee and the artist of unique paper mache art pieces such as the AWESOME moon she is holding

Now take a look at our Barn Neighbor to our left
Michelle...aka-Vintage Junky
Buy Vintage-save the World-Michelle's moto...
I could not agree more !
Michelle has a wonderful eye- incredibly talented in her numerous handmade treasures.
Just many burlap lampshades did she sell?!?!

And to our right-neighbors from Old Tyme Marketplace
Beth and Wendy are from NC and did I L O V E their space
All the contents-their talent in display
and especially the two of them-precious ladies !
I think a road trip is in our future to NC !!!

Why oh why didn't I buy this tub ?!?!

Sadly our camera's battery died (  thanks to Mary we at least have these pics)before I could get pictures of the other great vendors-will add when I can borrow from others .

Now to what we created !
First meet the "gang" Art !
As mentioned earlier, Art Woods works for AGAPE and was our adopted Rooster :>)

Blake Harris-- Art Woods-- Debbie Antes--Stacey Harris-Fish -- Mary Runger

First let me take you in to our "Spooky Room"
as we refered to it
Created with her magical maven touch Mary Runger assisted
by one of our wonderful dealers Jodie Hailey
shows how we can take vintage items and evolve them in to a Spooky Loveliness.

                    After seeing so many chest of drawers and other items on many blogs painted with the Union Jack flag we decided to pay homage to our great country...the USA. Planning the show several months earlier we found it ironic and very appropriate that we have an Americana area one week after the tenth anniversary of our great country being attacked on 911. There is nothing prettier than the red white and blue !

Nothing says America like a car door off of a 65' Mustang ! Art comes in all forms and when Debbie and I spotted this on our great trip to the 600 mile yard sale we both squealed with joy.
We had so much joy explaining to the salesman at the scrap yard that
NO..this wasn't for our husbands did not matter that "the windows are in perfect shape"  
  NO...neither one of us own a 65' Mustang
But would become wall art !
Didn't it turn out great ?
...and no the poor fellar still does not understand  !

We have said before how we love to re-purpose items. Notice the red light hanging.
That is the top to an old chicken incubator that we had wired to light.
Isn't it just fab !!!
Would make a great light over an island or pool table.

Our booth in the downstairs of the booth was approximately a 10x60
Therefore we hads LOTS of room to play and display much loveliness !
The opposite end of our space we chose to go with a more romantic-shabby chic look
with a splash of handmade art signs and crosses made by Blake Harris
Below is a gorgeous vanity painted in a yummy shade of lavendar and white-waxed to aged perfection

Art by Blake Harris ( son to owner Stacey Harris-Fish...a proud momma )
Blakes pieces were a big show hit !
Blake can do custom pieces-just give us a call.

            This show was an absolute blast in every way !
 One added gift to us at Three French Hens and The Roost is event photographer Autumn Lynn Photography is teaming up with us to work together on some endeavors. We are so very excited so at this time you get a real treat !
  No more of my amatuer pictures--
Autumn provided us with the next several.
    Enjoy and please go check out more of her work at

Another light made from an old tractor grill

Our incredible view from our is this heaven or what ?!

Assuredly Blessed we certainly were !
What a memory filled weekend !
Thanks to everyone that attended-
Grateful for all the new friends we met
So good to see and visit our treasured old friends
and thanks be to God for incredible weather and the willingness of
Tap Root Farms for sharing their slice of heaven with all of us.

Until next time........
