Don't forget to join us tonight at 9pm eastern time as we will refresh our offerings at PRIMITIVE HANDMADES MERCANTILE! Hopefully you have put in your chance at winning one of the give-a-way prizes being offered too!
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!
