bits and bobbles bracelet

Vintage beads, freshwater pearls, clip on earrings, a tiny key, a sweet owl and a filigree locket are just the start to this bits and bobbles upcycled OOAK bracelet!

upcycled cluster necklace

Six vintage crystals, a gold angel wing, a sapphire stone, and an angel pendent make up this OOAK upcycled cluster necklace.

 I think I love cluster necklaces the best!  There's something sweet about a cluster of found items, all sharing the same new space.  The jingle jangle sound is soothing in it's own way, don't you think?

Vintage Christmas cards!

My handmade Christmas cards all had a vintage feel to them this year!  I just love this one, a holiday party to remember I'm sure!

Jolly old St. Nick bringing Christmas Greetings!

A Barbie Family Christmas!

Holiday Party Chic!

Have a swell Christmas!  These cute cards were a hit with family and friends, I think I'll do a similar theme next Christmas!  Until then.....

The last market of 2011 and it was a huge success!  The ladies who run Fieldstone Vintage Market do a bang up job, I can't wait for the next one!

St. Ann's Craft Fair Nov 2011

The ladies of St. Ann's Parish did an amazing job with decor for their craft fair.  Don't you love the red flowers hanging from the ceiling?
I added the red ribbon and red display busts to go with the Christmas theme..
The lamp display is new too.  Well new to my display!  When I was 17 (a LOOOONG time ago!) I refinished the base of the lamp with a cream crackle finish.  Recently my mom decided that she no longer wanted this beauty. I purchased a lamp shade on the cheep and ripped the cover off.  The skeleton of the shade now showcases my OOAK necklaces!

3 of my favorites, a vintage skeleton key (lt), an upcycled chandelier crystal with pearls (center) and a sold sunny chrysanthemum (rt)
