What I've Been Up To!

I have been busy creating in preparation for an antique and craft show that I'm participating in this Sat.~Oct. 16th. This is the 12th year I've done this show and it has always been a pretty good one. It's well known for it's outstanding craft vendors and primitive antiques. I will be bringing a little of both.

I've been having fun with these Halloween collages using vintage elements. The one above has an old photo of little kids in their Halloween costumes heading out to go trick or treating!

Painted this little wheelbarrow black and then hand-painted a fun fall greeting!

Will also be bringing all the vintage Halloween I recently purchased and stashed away!

This little toy typewriter has all the perfect colors for a fall/Halloween display!

I have these grungy, black trees for sale at my space at the Red Rooster and am using one of them to display my hand-made junk jewelry!

I have been really enjoying creating these pieces with vintage elements like keys, buttons, clock parts and broken pieces of old costume jewelry!

The possibilities are endless!!!

If anyone is in the Menominee Falls, WI area this coming Sat. the 16th come and check out this great show! A Community Affair is run by a volunteer organization that raises money for various community projects and charities! It is their biggest fund raiser of the year!
Go here for further information.

Hope to see you there!!!

P.S. The food at this show (especially the desserts) is divine!!


  1. Oh how I wish I could be there! You have created some wonderful pieces and I know you will be sold out in the blink of an eye!!
