What was once a yellow vintage vinyl bag is what you see here…the result of seeing/hearing the What Does the Fox Say video. It’s a work in progress….

Little bit hippie, little bit country girl

I haven’t abandoned my signature style, just expanding on it. This bag was created using upholstery fabric samples.

I was given an unbelievable array of beautiful (discontinued) samples from an upscale furniture store…could hardly sleep just thinking about all the things I could do with them!

They Come Alive at Night

August 9, 2013 - Comments Off on They Come Alive at Night

Rumor has it, they come alive at night. By day, they sit on our shelves and function as banks for pocket change….and as conversation pieces. All were hand carved and created by my dad :)

My birthday present this year was inspired by the musical “Cats”, it was the first one created in a series that included not only cats, but leopard ladies too. You can see more of his work on his website – http://donsdaylilydivider.com/ …and a close-up of my birthday present, the tabbie.

Whimsy in My Garden

August 6, 2013 - Comments Off on Whimsy in My Garden

A handmade surprise from a very sweet friend…an upcycled flower made with layered vintage plates and a glass candle holder topped off with the perfect old brass grannie’s button. (She has lots more started…I saw them in the crafty area of her basement. Maybe she will let me photograph them when she is done and I will share them here :)
