Salvaged Beauty

After attending shopping until our feet hurt
at the
 Junk in the Trunk Show
last Saturday... 
I was more than inspired
 to upcycle and repurpose
in my studio
What was once broken or discarded
can become your treasures
Looking forward to creating with these pieces
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!

A Box of Vintage Charm

I have sorted and sorted
boxes of collected aka hoarded metal pieces
all kinds of metal
lamp parts
heart shapes
faux ceiling tins
metal tins
when I FINALLY got busy
 and created with some of them
- it was such a relief -
*there is more from this box
 of vintage metals to come*
Maybe it's the cooler weather
nice breeze this 75 degree morning
I am already working on holiday themes
in the hope of being ahead of things
-we shall see how that pans out-

a few simple items in my shop
supplies I cannot live without

Happy Friday Everyone!

Healing is Needed

Where there is sadness and heartache
-healing is needed-
I've been told by customers
that my petite religious pieces bring them peace
Either suffering a loss of a loved one
simply a rough patch in life
you sweet ladies have no idea
how much your words mean to me
I long to hear that what passes from my hands to yours
lifts your spirit in some way
Keeping me busy at this big old wood table
creating away for hours
always wondering why I take the direction I do
Now, I know
VRemembering this day and praying we all healV

Vintage Treasures

I am often asked,
"how can you part with this?"

the reality is....

it is hard sometimes
to let go of pieces

My little studio is filled with collections

and to be honest....
I have too much.
I've been collecting for most of my adult life.
At the moment I am more than happy
to pass on these little vintage treasures.
I hope to have some in my etsy shop real soon!
