Spokane Garden Expo May 13th update

A Cold Garden Show - but we're still good!

This past weekend was the Spokane Garden Expo. There weren't a ton of people there as there have been in the past couple of years due to cold weather and a bit of intermittent rain. We managed to do okay though. The bummer was that on the driver over to Spokane, two windows were broken.  Oh my!  So expensive but a lot of value comes from lessons learned.
The windows were a lot larger but looked similar to these:
Here's more pictures of the booth: 
 The whole view
NEW! Wedding signs

 Wedding Banners, other banners....very fun and made of antique canvas and papers!
 Garden wall hangings to include my new owls!
Each one of these owls had names and a story behind them. This is Francine the Owl. She has garden & tea parties in the neighborhood for all the other lady owls.
I have some new mixed media items that will be coming out soon. For now, that's my creative adventure news.  Stay tuned!

The last several months.....

Boy things have been busy in the last several months but I have now had some time to make updates to this page! YAY!

Here are pictures of several venues where I sold my wares at garden and home type shows. Life has been good. Here are some pictures.They include my latest window designs which I am thrilled about. They are beautiful when the sun shines through them. I think they'd be perfect for a wedding or special event too!

Coming to the end of summer....

Summer is coming to an end and it's been both a fun and transitional summer. First for the fun...


He talks with his hands like a true Italian (from his dad's side). Every time I think of him I smile.

Then I added my items to 3rd Street Antiques and Collectibles in Puyallup. Here's a couple of pieces that you'll find down there. Really great place.... go visit....

And then there was the adding of Amelia to our little family...

Zumba for Diane happened on August 15th. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this worthy event to raise money for such a wonderful person!

Lastly, taking a change in direction with my job and winding down my work in one area of The Boeing Company and going back to a group I have known well with a new role. Super excited! God is good!

Catching up... it's been a while

So I have been working hard at my day job and of course playing with my grandson. Oh the delights of this little one.

Truly, I could go on and on.....

Now about the Shabby Chic French and Nautical world I live in....

On Mother's Day weekend I set up and sold my items at a large garden expo in Spokane at Spokane Community College. It was a great sale with lots and lots of people. Here are some pictures. My family was there to help me and we made it an event. And I am so excited that I will now be carrying my products and 3rd Street Antiques in Puyallup as of June 1st!

Enjoy the pictures and let me know how your spring is going! Sue

Welcome Christmas!

The season is upon us and I am grateful for a wonderful time with family at Thanksgiving and for all the blessings that come with family time. For many of us family time can be so challenging during the season due to strained relationships. I know the pain so well. I won't go into details here but God is faithful no matter what. Here's some Thanksgiving pictures of my lil' grandson....

He's such a little love!

I got my tree up and ready for the rest of the holidays:

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas season!
