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
and
nice breeze this 75 degree morning
but
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
and
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
or
simply a rough patch in life
you sweet ladies have no idea
how much your words mean to me
V
I long to hear that what passes from my hands to yours
lifts your spirit in some way
V
Keeping me busy at this big old wood table
creating away for hours
V
always wondering why I take the direction I do
V
Now, I know
V
VRemembering this day and praying we all healV
