We are thrilled to offer a variety of Fall scents from both Antique Candle Company and Linnea’s Lights this year! We brought back Pumpkin from Linnea’s Lights because it is a store and customer favorite. Pumpkin is a warm mix of thyme with spices that smells like pumpkin and fall harvest. Also debuting this year is a new scent called Gather. It is a mix of nutmeg. vetiver, and tonka bean.
We are thrilled with how our new line, Antique Candle Co. is going so far. For Fall, we’ve added Apple Pickin’ and it definitely lives up to its name. It is fresh, sweet and clean. We are restocked with Country Pear which is a great Fall scent as well!
We are so excited to share our newest partnership with Antique Candle Company. If you follow some of the farmhouse bloggers on Instagram, you’ve probably heard of them. If not, here’s the scoop…
They are located in Lafayette, Indiana which means another local-local collaboration for us. The candles come in several sizes and we now offer the 16 oz and 8 oz sizes. Sweet Lemon, Back Roads, Clean Cotton, Sage & Citrus and Fresh Cut Herbs are part of their signature collection and Country Pear by Cotton Stem was created in collaboration with Erin from Cotton Stem. They are all soft, sweet, clean smells and we cannot wait for you to experience them!
Today begins one of my favorite Zionsville Events, our Fall Festival
See you there!!
The kids are back in school, at least in Zionsville they are, so that must mean fall is just around the corner! We have a lovely selection of fall goodies in the store, including some of our faves from last year, the felt pumkins!
We also have some new resin pumpkins in teal and brown…
We also have apples and our mercury glass pumkins and gourds…
For our next project using our new MMSMP Zinc Wax, I chose an old, handmade cabinet. This one was also painted but we did not rough it up with sandpaper because it was very flat. We did, however, lose the weird screens that were misshapen due to use.
When my husband and I remodeled our half bath about 10 years ago, he built a cabinet and we covered the doors with sheet metal. It created a cool rustic look and we thought we would do the same on this cabinet. I LOVE how it turned out…
We got the sheet metal from Lowes. I liked that it was an unusual design and thought it fancied the whole piece up a bit! We painted a coat of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter, our dark gray/black, and finished the piece with two coats of Zinc Wax.
The shimmer of the Zinc Wax on MMSMP typewriter was very subtle. It is not overtly metallic but just covers very slightly and adds a little depth. I am excited to mix Zinc Wax with our other Waxes to see what fun finishes we can create! Be sure to get yours in store or online!
We are thrilled to offer a new Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Wax, Zinc Wax! It is a soft, silver-toned metallic wax that adds a hint of shimmer. We’ve tried out the Zinc Wax on a few projects and are pleased that it is as smooth and malleable as all of the waxes in the MMSMP line. I applied the wax with a brush but a lint free cloth will work also!
For the first project, I chose a lingerie chest that had an old paint job (you could almost smell the polyurethane!). So we scuffed it up and mixed up some MMSMP Trophy with bonding agent. We followed two coats of Trophy with a light sand and then added two coats of Zinc Wax. What do you think?
I think it looks so much better and was pleased that the Zinc Wax made Trophy seem much more silver-gray. It is a great option to add a little depth to the piece without muting the color with Antiquing Wax!
Our shipment arrives August 2nd so check it our in store and online!

Most importantly, I want to create a space for you to enjoy while on your journey.
You’ve heard me talk about our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Hemp Oil! I love it for many reasons — here’s a list!
Check out our stairs at the new store location (205 S Main St) before, during and after a coat of hemp oil…
Before: dry, dingy
During: notice the difference in the steps
Stop in soon to see them in person!!
I love blue and white china and it is my go-to after we take down the holiday items in the store. Something about the different shades of blue against the aged white ceramic or – new this year – cement really complements the pieces we have in the store in MMSMP flow blue, artissimo and bergere.
I also like to pair the blue and white with preserved boxwood…
And we have these beautiful pillows that are another great way to accent the pieces…
Happy Fall! Hopefully the cooler temps arriving soon will get us all in the mood to decorate for this amazing season. We have a huge selection of tobacco baskets, the perfect accent for fall and rustic decorating.
These authentic tobacco baskets were salvaged from a farm in Tennessee. They measure roughly 40×40 and are a great statement piece! Above the mantle, on a large blank wall…perfection!
If you’d like a less expensive, smaller option, we also carry various sizes and shapes of reproduction baskets. These are great for a collage wall or a stand alone space in any nook in your home.
