Just wanted to give you a glimpse of a couple of new handmade pin keeps I have for sale in my Etsy shop. If you are interested in viewing the rest or making a purchase you can visit my shop by clicking on the avatar in the left column of this page. Thank you and Happy Summer!
I like to have my decorations up and done early so I can enjoy them during Thanksgiving and throughout the month of December. Yes, my family thinks I start way too early, but I can't help it. When I'm feeling the spirit of the season I want to begin wrapping it all around me. Below are the results of me being "in the holiday spirit".
WISHING YOU ALL THE HAPPIEST OF THE SEASON! Audrey
I just wanted to send Misi of 1890 Gable House Goodes a big THANK YOU for her generosity
I entered Misi's give-away and won one of her beautiful paper covered boxes filled with wonderfully scented tarts!
If you have never made a purchase from Misi I must say her creativeness and talents are outstanding! Misi sells her wares
on her blog site and you can find her here: http://gablehousegoodes.bigcartel.com/ and here: http://primitivehandmadesmercantile.com/
I'll check Craigs List on a daily basis if there is something I'm passionate about finding. I've been looking for a Highboy and a Grandfather clock for months. I didn't want to spend lots of money for them because I knew I wanted to paint them. Finally on back to back weekends I found the two items that suited me just fine!
The Highboy cost me $213 and the Grandfather clock was just $69!
If there is something you're passionate about don't give up, you never know when it'll happen for you!
The weather was fine, so along with our holiday guests we headed to the Desert Botanical Garden In Phoenix for the stunning exhibition of art glass by Dale Chihuly.
Chihuly is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from craft to fine art. He is renowned for his ambitious architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens. Chihuly’s work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass.
Here are some pictures I took along the trail
What a fun day we spent together enjoying art and nature!
