Beautiful things...

Ever taken the time to write 3 awesome things that have happened each day? Well, I am on a journey to do just that. As I am doing it, the little things seem to make my day. The guy in the car ahead of me at Starbucks who didn't know I was having a bad day paid for my drink, the neighbor who didn't know I really wanted flowers and yet brought me two roses from her garden. These are simple things, but they are beautiful.

Perhaps that's why I like to go searching for beautiful vintage, repurposed or distressed items. Here are some of my new finds:

I encourage you to focus on the beautiful things in life!  Maybe it's a cute face like this:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! New items at "The Spare Room"

Happy New Year everyone!  2011 brought so many gifts especially with a new son in law and my Jim!!!!

I have been busy creating new items for the vintage shop in Everett just across from Comcast Arena. Such as this red table that I call "Redbarn Sweetheart Table"
The picture doesn't really show the true red doesn't show the real tones. This picture makes it look like it has brown tones, but it does not.

Here are some new frameables that were created..... I love doing the lettering!!!!!!

A large canvas.....
Then there is the an old screen that I did up.....

This is just a start to the New Year!!!!  Come visit "The Spare Room"!!!!! There's lots of really good stuff there!

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!

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!
