Behind the scenes at Chapel Market...

Early Friday morning I left the swamps of Louisiana and headed North to Alabama.

Layla was hosting a vintage market filled with friends and this girl was not going to miss it.

After a 5 1/2 drive I made it there within minutes to meet up with a few of my roomies,

Rhoda and I drove in to give a helping hand wherever needed.

A labor of love... ;)

I think for the first ten minutes of arriving, I just walked around in awe.

It was just that amazing...

This sweet little community just touched so many of our hearts over our 2 day stay.

I can't wait to share more about that soon.

I wanted to breathe in all of this fabulousness before it would soon find its forever homes.

Every inch of space was filled to the brim of vintage delight .

Miss Mustard Seed .... oh how she rocked her space!

I bought one of her signature pieces and can't wait to tell ya'll about it.

Ever walked through a magazine in real life?

That's what this booth felt like decorated by the talented urbanfarmgirl and Susan from Mapelandmagnolia.

These girls ROCK!

I was like a moth drawn to a flame..

If you love maps, globes, vintage trucks and letters and pendants and warm fuzzy flannel blankets...

you understand...

And then there were friends like sprinkles on your cake.

These two..

Sweet Laura from Finding Home full of blog knowledge that I soaked all in ..

And see that little ball of energy below that never stayed still?

Yup, it's KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms

You have not lived till you spent the weekend with this girl.

She is a book of never ending stories and these girls!

Fresh Flowers...

This tree below was just one of the many items I wanted to take home from  Lucyinspired .

Her booth was just as gorgeous as she is!

I could go on and on but I know you have plenty to do today...

So join me back here and we can pick up where we left off with more great finds, friends and fun!
