Shop the Maple Valley Farmhouse

Hello!  How are you all doing?  I hope all is well in your neck of the woods!  You may have noticed a major trend in my blog posts lately in that they all begin with an exclamation of  'Oh my, look at how much time has slipped by since my last post!' and this one is no exception! :)  I am terribly sorry for not keeping up with you!  With summer finally making it's long awaited arrival, life is extremely busy here.  I will try to fill you in on some of the details and get you up to date on what's been going on!

But first, I must share a little secret!  I have a favorite place that I love to get away to!  It has a very relaxing environment, the most wonderful hosts and loads of vintage treasures begging me to take them all home!  Let me introduce you to the Maple Valley Farmhouse!

Located in Coral, Michigan, it is just shy of a two-hour drive for me, but well worth it.  Angela of Living Simply @ Maple Valley Farm along with Holly of Haviland Fields and Victoria of The Barn spend long hours antique picking all week to fill the main floor of the Maple Valley Farmhouse with their finds.  The Farmhouse has weekly summer sales and is open by appointment throughout the week.  Trust me in that there is no going home empty-handed with such unique finds at great prices!

The next scheduled sale is coming up this weekend on June 14 and 15.  At each sale you can also expect farm danish, free coffee, and a light lunch menu!  Sounds like the perfect opportunity for another day trip!  Can't wait!  At the Maple Valley Farmhouse you are amongst friends!

 Let me also quickly fill you in on what I have been up to!  I am working hard on putting together a separate website for my shop!  It is almost ready to go so the next round of treasures for sale will be displayed on 'shiny new shelves!'  I will keep you posted on exactly when the new shop will launch so please keep an eye on my Facebook and blog for updates.  In the meantime, you can check out what is still available for purchase here.


The garden has also been beckoning me and stealing the rest of my time!  My raised beds are finally in and stuffed with vegetables, my window boxes are filled and I made all my own annual hanging baskets this year.  I can't wait to show you all my hard work!  I promise to post more garden photos soon!




Well, better run for now!  Thank you again for being so patient with me!  I appreciate you all very much!



Have a wonderful week,




Maria ~Rusty Hinge

  12. I know how you feel. I post infrequently. When I do sit down to read blogs though I always come to yours. What a special place that looks like. Hope you are enjoying your summer.
