A few weeks ago at the flea market, I was inquiring with a vendor if they had any single saucers to sell. Unknown to me at the time, a lady overheard my conversation and her ears perked up. She came over to me later to say that she had a huge collection of saucers which she was wishing to sell. Turns out that her mother, now 86, had collected saucers as a hobby for many years of her life. I bought her entire collection — a total of 480 saucers. I was on cloud nine!
This past spring, I went through some things (um, I mean, lots of junk!) in my mom’s basement. I found this really ratty box of old christmas ornaments. A label on the box states that they were ‘Made in Japan’. They are probably not worth a dime but I can still see their beauty reflecting back to me.
And yes, you can see me in some of the ornaments!
For awhile now I have been collecting vintage earrings at the flea market. I realize that turning them into magnets is not a new idea. But what an easy and quick way to transform them into something useful again. I think they are even more beautiful the second time around!
A few months ago, I finished making a shadowbox for my Aunt Marilyn. Her maiden name is Brown and she wanted to display the photographs of her family history. The images shown do not include the frame of the shadowbox.
The other day I popped in to see Janine at Uppercase Gallery to say hello and give my personal congrats on her recent launch of the new magazine full of curiosities. I can’t wait to eat up every page with delight!
Santa could not wait for Christmas day so we opened up presents early this year. I have been a very good girl! He gave me a Canon 40D camera.
I am pleased to announce that I have launched a store on Etsy. A small selection of ring holders featuring china patterns from Grosvenor, Royal Standard and Paragon are available to purchase online.
