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 :)

I will be showing my boho upcycled accessories at “The Gables” in Springfield this weekend…weather permitting, Friday and Saturday. Here are a couple of boho headbands–these two have been sold, but I will have more at the show. (One of a kind, of course :)  AND I will have upcycled bags, cuffs and choker/necklaces.

A Visit to the Country

Some pictures of the scenery at my parents house last night. I like the way the fields look off in the distance on the last one. (I was surprised that my iPad captured the rows from so far away)

Bridesmaid Accessories

I like the trend in bridesmaid attire, where each attendant wears the style of dress that is flattering to her, colors are the same, but style is different. One-of-kind accessorizing is a perfect fit for this popular trend.

Mulling around a new idea–thinking about adding quirky necklace creations to my collection of bags, headbands and cuffs. Upcycled, that is and created with fabric snippets,vintage buttons and coated striped colored wire. I think I like the light summery fun look of this one.

Whether it be for walking the dog or pushing a stroller, a crossbody style bag comes in handy for carrying your keys and phone/camera…who knows when you might see a photo worthy sight while out for a stroll? It’s not only functional, but cute….we think Max and Molly are too!
