The fivethirty home halls are officially decked for the holidays and I am so excited for you to see all we have to offer this year. I think we have a great selection of what you have come to expect from us at the holidays: pillows, signs, Zionsville and Indiana ornaments, elegant and fun ornaments and more.
And, we’ve added lots of soft goods this year! Some of my faves are the felt and crocheted ornaments and very cool plaid blankets. We’ve also added more shimmer than ever before with lots of mercury glass and gold decor and ornaments.
I really enjoyed putting together the displays this year, too. Our window is a lodge/winter cabin feel with lots of birch, antlers and sled/ski/snowshoes. I love the sparkle in the front of the store and ornament central just beyond our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint display. We even gave the nautical area some fun ornaments, rustic Christmas trees and driftwood goodies!
Hope to see you soon…
We try to snatch up these little tables whenever we see them. I think they are handy to store magazines, books, toys, etc. This one would be just perfect for a little girl’s room finished in pale pinks and greens. We gave the table two coats of MMSMP in Layla’s Mint and a light coat of antiquing wax…
Day 2 of our trip to Pennsylvania was mostly about photography and social media. I took lots of pictures…
We learned about how to use Adobe Lightroom and take great pics. I don’t know if I will ever get it but I’ve been practicing since we’ve been back. We’ll see. And then there’s this, when your mentor helps you take a picture…
If only I could’ve brought her back! She can blog from anywhere, right??
Marian’s studio is such an inspiring and beautiful space. From behind the counter on the chalkboard wall…
To the MMSMP paint colors all lined up…
To seeing pieces she’s been posting on her own blog…
It was amazing. I would have packed it all up and brought it back to Zionsville but a bigger van would have been required! I did snatch up a few pieces of ironstone and we went to an antique store where Marian and Kriste shop.
The first day was mostly talk about products, painting a little and talking about how we as retailers use and answer questions about Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. I even wore my paint sweater…
It was one of those days that you never want to see end. I talk about shared ideas to the sounds of sandpaper in my classes all the time. I love talking with other creatives and it was so inspiring! I can’t wait to bring some of our ideas back to 20 N Main!!
Stay tuned for the final post about our visit, day 2!
Kellie and I headed to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania last week for a retailer workshop at Miss Mustard Seed’s Studio. We drove so we could pick a few goodies if time allowed (it did!). The drive across Indiana and Ohio was fairly uneventful…lovely day, not much traffic. Siri told us to get off the PA turnpike a little early and so we were on a fairly rural route for the last two hours. Beautiful scenery…
When we arrived, we met up with my pal Kathy of Paint it Shabby whom I visit when we travel to Florida and another MMSMP retailer from Florida, Paula of A Painted Gate. Paula and I had met on a Google Hangout several years ago and it was great to see her again. She had never seen snow and they had a little left in the mountains so this happened…
We also met up with Stephanie Jones of me&mrs.jones, she’s tricky though, I didn’t get a picture of her…
stay tuned for lots of pictures of the Miss Mustard Seed Studio…
This table had good bones but a really outdated look. We decided simpler was better so painted it with a coat of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter and a coat of Antiquing Wax. The hardware was nothing spectacular so we decided to paint it also.
I’ve been getting lots of questions in the store lately about why/when we paint the existing hardware. I’d say we are a pretty even mix of painting the hardware, removing and putting back on and replacing with new. If a piece is missing or it is a single knob and I don’t care for the original, we replace with a ceramic or metal knob. If the hardware is old, interesting and in tact, we will remove it while we paint and put it back on. If, as in this case, it is not that interesting, we will paint straight over so that it blends with the piece.
Did you know that fivethirty home has, in addition to our website, an ebay store and an etsy store?
We sell the entire Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line in our Ebay store, along with assorted collectibles and estate finds.
Also, you know how much we love milk glass! We currently have a nice selection of bud vases, planters and small bowls in our Etsy store.
This weekend is one of my favorite events in Zionsville, the annual Fall Festival! The whole town lines Main Street to watch the parade (ok, half the town lines Main Street to watch the parade because the other half is IN the parade)…
Stop by and see us this Saturday! And, if your kids are going to the carnival on Sunday, come up for a little shopping from 12-4. See you then!
As I mentioned before, we love using the European line of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. We are especially enamored of Mora, a lovely green gray and one of September’s colors of the month! Here’s our latest…
We saved the original hardware for this one. I think they are really beautiful against the gray! Currently available at fivethirty in Zionsville!
The school window is my favorite every year. We almost didn’t do one this year because of how busy we were getting our kids back to school! We were a week late but pulled together some letters, maps and school desks to make it happen!
We pulled some of our salvaged letters to spell out “Back to School”…
The old teacher’s desk is from the 1880s complete with a pull out drawer and inkwell. We incorporated one of our cursive papers, a vintage map, a jar of chalk and a kid sized coat rack…
A chalkboard, thermos and yearbook from 1933 are nestled on an old oak student desk refreshed in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Kitchen Scale.
We hope you will stop in for a peek! And, if you’d like to see some of our other school windows, check out our Pinterest page!!
It finally feels like Summer in Indy! And, here’s hoping the rain is over for a little bit. We are having a fun Summer filled with camp, swimming and lots of PAINTING!! We are looking forward to the next great event on Main Street, the Street Dance! This year, the band will be Zanna-Doo and we will have the usual food trucks, kids entertainment and our awesome local restaurants! Fivethirty will be open until 8:00 or so – please stop by and say Hello!

We had the great pleasure of doing a tablescape for the Sullivan Munce Garden Tour in June and wanted to show you our creation.
I decided to do a nautical/patriotic table top because I love the 4th of July! I love red, white and blue…and our nautical floats…our fake dock piling made from pool noodles. Yep, you read that correctly and here’s how we did it (thanks, Pinterest)
We measured and cut two large pool noodles into lengths of 20″, 30″ and 36″. We then covered the noodles with woodgrain contact paper. We cut three round pieces to cover the tops and tied them with some rope ribbon I had at the store!
I think it turned out really cute and added some much needed height to the table…
For the individual place settings, we used some old Anchor plates we sell at the store, a blue willow saucer and a knot with a galvanized letter in it…
You may notice the little mint life saver wrapped around the napkin (thanks again, Pinterest). For cups, I used some ceramic mason jars in blue with a pinwheel paper straw.
I was really pleased with how it turned out!!
What a fun, fun day we had on Saturday! It was rainy, but the vendors and shoppers seemed to have a great time!
I really loved our outdoor setup this year. The letters were a big hit (so big that Jim is going to meet with the salvage guy again this week for more!) And, we planter herbs in these vintage teacups and mugs…
We also brought out a huge shelf filled with pillows, our Zionsville bags and dough bowls…
The inside of the store was packed almost all day and we have some new furniture to share with you later this week. Here’s a funny picture of sweet Maddie picking one of our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Starter kits…isn’t she the cutest?
A huge shoutout and thank you to Dusky and Julie of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce for another fantastic event! (and my demo was fine – yikes)
Our classes are so much fun! Just ask our students:
“My friends and I had so much fun meeting up in Zionsville for the class at fivethirty home last week. Just a quick note to say thanks – I’ve done one table at home and I am hooked. I need to find more things to paint!”
Milk Paint 101 is a great class to learn the basics plus a little extra! We will teach you how to mix, paint and finish your piece. We will let you in on a few of our secrets (what kind of sandpaper do we use? how do we mix waxes together to get different finishes? how can you get the chippy look on raw wood?)
We also can do certain specific classes upon request. Have a group of ladies who would like to do a sign class on a Friday evening? Let us know! We’ve done a few specialty classes like this one for sisters who were stenciling old cabinet doors for their family cabin…
I’m doing a class this month for a mother, daughter and grandmother who are going to give new life to two older bar stools! I can’s wait.
Our scheduled 101 classes are: May 22 (2 spots left), June 19, July 17
We hope to see you in the store soon!
This year is the 30th anniversary of Zionsville’s Brick Street Market. It has always been one of my favorite events in Zionsville – I was even a vendor in 2003 with my stationary and cards! Since we’ve opened the store, I’ve learned some of the stories about the origins and I’m so happy to know some of the people that started it 30 years ago: Sandy Rogers, owner of the Butler’s Pantry; Jan and Ralph Stacy, former owners of Stacy LaBolt’s and the Duckworths, Indianapolis area antique legends.
On May 16, 2015, our Main Street will host over 175 vendors, have a community stage with music and demos, and have lots of great food and fun! And, as always, it is free admission! Come for the whole day, walk around and enjoy the great shopping to be had!
If you are coming, be sure to be near Cedar and Main at 10 am where Maddie and I will be doing a Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Demo! We would love to see lots of our customers in the crowd and there may even be a giveaway or two!
We can’t wait to see you!
