Holiday French Market...

I had the most fun this weekend with Mom at the Holiday Market, I thought I would share with you some of the great items I picked up for my home. I love sparkly things and actually had to go back a second time to look at everything!

Everything is vintage sheet music and glittered with german glass like these cute little jingle bells. I am using them for one of my trees (pictures will come soon). I tied mine with hand dyed and scented seem binding ribbon in the color scheme I wanted this year.

 I am addicted to Bottle Brush Trees so... the collection grew again this year!

I got a new vintage pine tree this year, so of course I am in need of new ornaments! These are adorable glittered glass owl ornaments. They are a reproduction not vintage but you can't really tell. I did pick up some more glass owls for my tree and will share those next blog!

I think one of things I love most about this quant little holiday market was the attention to detail. The displays were mesmeriszing not to mention the boxed lunch! One a terrific and very old fashioned idea. You could buy a pink boxed lunch, which consited of a yummy 1/2 sandwich, cup of soup (it was chilly out) and chips. All done up in a pink cake box, I loved this. Nothing like a little lunch after all that shopping! I'll be back to share the pictures of my home and more new treasures I found this time around!

Happy Holidays and Joyous Noel!

Dream... Altered Art

My last project was not Halloween themed at all but a larger altered art piece that looks like a big heavy book, but actually is a hidden compartment much like a jewelery box. I love altered art, but this is by far one of largest pieces I have worked with. I hope you enjoy!

A Vintage Halloween...

Have you ever completed a piece of artwork and realized that you really like it and wanted to keep it for yourself? Over the years I have on occasion wondered "why didn't I make one for me" I think this year I will at least try and create something that is mine to keep! For now... Here is my newest Halloween treat cone. I love the very vintage trick or treat pattern on this one. It has those little Black cats, devils and pumpkins. I trimmed this one with some vintage looking black and orange Halloween garland.

I am so ready for Halloween! Its almost here.

Slipping down the Rabbit Hole...

Good Saturday Evening...

Just wanted to update everyone, contrary to popular belief I have not fallen down the rabbit hole with Alice, shrunk, stretched, scratched or stuffed into a teapot! Just feels like it.

I have been absent for a bit and missing you all terrible! This is day 8 after my little guys surgery. Its going to be a long few weeks yet but he is doing great. Its been a little rough on him and mom is pretty tired too.

More news from the Hollow, my blog and my website is getting an overhaul, please be patient until I get the website finished and back up and running with a brand new look. Until then, Im late, Im late... you know the rest.
