A trip out this Saturday brought me to the Vintage Hendo market hosted by the Southern Appalachian Brewery, located in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The weather was a little concerning early in the day with clouds, but wait the clouds began to part, the sun popped out, and the adventure was on. Mr. BRV had to work so I drug my son along with me for a little junkin and an adventure to the Vintage Hendo.

Seed starting is a great way to get a jump-start on planting your garden. Yes, it probably is easier to go to the local farmers market, retail store or hardware store to purchase plants that are already mature and ready to plant. However, it doesn’t take much time out of your day to start seed indoors in preparation for planting season.
Spring is here and the weather is warming up nicely and means it is time to check the hives. We check the hives to see how survived over the winter months. We like to wait until the daytime temperatures have become stable and there is no frost or freeze warnings. The hives need to say a constant temperature and exposing the bees too much cooler temperatures can harm the hive.
Mr. BRV suited up to see how they were doing. He doesn’t normally suit up, however they are a bit more agitated when they haven’t been worked with since the temperatures dropped in the Fall. The neighbors near the hives are not so sure about being outside when Mr. BRV is checking them. [Read more…]
This Saturday was the Bee Happy Vintage Market in the Biltmore Village, located in Asheville, NC and the weather could not have been better with sunny blue skies. Mr. BRV and I decided to make a day of junkin and a stop off at the Bee Happy Vintage Market. This was a wonderful little market with about 25 vendors from many different areas such as Tennessee, South Carolina, and right at home here in North Carolina.
The host of the market was Bee Happy Wares & Whimsies and they had a very inviting booth with a little bit of everything for everyone. The vanity on right when you walk in just made me stop in my tracks…..it was a beauty. There were also aprons, pillows, and many other goodies to choose from. Lovin the burlap.
You just gotta love the logo…..it makes me smile! [Read more…]
