june 2013 summer fun!!

dancing goat studio has expanded its retail floor space and revamped displays to prime up for a busy summer decorating season.  we've expanded summer hours to include the 2nd and 4th thursday-saturday weekend AND has added every wednesday to it's open door schedule.
 
mid-century retro takes center stage for june with kitschy linen calendar pillows and a funky daisy tea service. earth toned cups remind us coffee at grandpa's morning table and colored glassware take us back to supper in aunties parlor. 
 
arful jewelry adorn our in-house dressform beside an assprtment of our signature altered book purses.  as always our book purse design center is available for you to select the perfect book to be up-cycled into a book purse you design yourself. 
 
 
dancing goat has quirky up-north d├ęcor to freshen up a summer cabin and update the three season porch.  perhaps a woolrich wool pillow will fit the bill or an old school lunch pail for a creative tv remote catch-all. with a now larger floor space it is hard to name everything for sale at dancing goat, so pick a day, and stop in to say hello.  perhaps a summer treasure will find it's way home with you.

january 2013 occasional sale is a winter white collection of all of our favorites.  cozy pillows created from thrift store sweaters and wool suit coats take center stage in the studio this month along with white, taupe and espresso painted furniture and accessories.  vintage ice skates, ski's and snow boots make unique seasonal decor.  after a month of too many decorations it feels good to simplify  your surroundings with something repurposed and fresh from the dancing goat studio!!!

jingle all the way

 


santa claus is coming to dancing goat studio! we are shining up the sleigh bells and prepping for a holly jolly christmas season.  the dancing goat has artful giftables under the tree and decorating ideas galore.  for example:

 
-fill a vintage ruffled bowl with shiny brite ornaments for use as a festive tablescape. 
 
-re-purpose utilitarian canning jars with hot chocolate and marshmallows for a quick party hot chocolate bar.  add a couple of clear glass holly coffee mugs and candy cane stir sticks.
 
-add a red accent table or chair to a corner of your home for instant holiday cheer. or invite your guests to cuddle up with a recycled sweater pillow found at the dancing goat.

most importantly remember that the holidays should be infused with tradition.  honor the old and begin some new traditions to make the season all that it is meant to be.

home for the holidays 2012


 

vintage decorating carries an air of nostalgia that can't be found at a big box store.  mix-up what you already own with quirky retro decor found at the dancing goat studio.  this season find an assortment of  brightly colored "shiny brite" ornaments, strands of vintage christmas lights and fresh cut greens for an old school spin on the season.
 
create an "up-north santa look" with red/black plaid found here in pillows constructed from  american made woolrich wool and repurposed sweaters/flannel shirts.   metal lunch boxes from yester-year make functional table-top accents or work well as unique christmas cookie gift boxes.
 


snow-white reindeer can be found in all corners of dancing goat and make for great season round woodsy accents for your home or porch. add old crates and servicable glass jars filled with ornaments or cookie cutters to add a touch of shabby chic.
 
simplify your holiday season with decorations that carry your home into the long days or january/february. stop into the dancing goat for great decorating ideas and artful giftables.
