Salem Farmers Market - November 13th

This was a really fun (really cold) day.  We met so many nice folks.  Seems everyone in Salem knows everyone else! All of the wine bottles are sold except one. I sold 2 of the little school chairs I had painted to a grandmother for her adorable little grandsons.  I told them they were "time out" chairs and explained what that meant...but they still wanted them anyway.  Hope they don't have to use them.... "much". A few dish rags, a few scarves, and several of our wooden items (my sister turns the most beautiful pens). Tried a hot fresh donut made right before my eyes....oh the sugar high! And bought a couple of Christmas presents myself. Sorry, more hints.  Here are some photos of our booth.

First Show of the Season

Well, my sister and I had our first show of 2010 last Saturday at The Brambleton Center.  It started slowly, but by the time the day was over, we had done very well!  Unfortunately, I forgot to take my I don't have any photo to share with you.  I'll be sure to do better this Saturday when we go to the Salem Farmer's Market.

Wine Bottle Nightlights

What's been keeping me busy lately.....they are just as pretty without the lights as they are with the tiny white lights inside turned on.

A Little Birdie Told Me

Dawn at The Feathered Nest once had a post of a little bird she made that was the inspiration for these little cuties. A little different from Dawn's, but still adorable, no?  These were made with air modeling clay and painted with acrylic paints.

Music from the 1800's

I love to think about all the souls who held these books in their hands and sang praises to the Lord!

More Adventures With Eunice

The Stationary Stump

Eunice Life Lessons


When my friend Karen used to work with me, we created a fictitious character named Eunice that we often said we were going to refer nasty customers to.  "Let's refer this one to Eunice."  The one constant about Eunice was that she suffered from "irritable bowel syndrome" due to the stress she suffered on the job.  We began to do art projects about Eunice and that theme remained throughout.  These photos are acutally of projects my friend, Karen, made for me.  She has the ones I made for her.

I believe this was the first one. Eunice at the Dollar Store.

Ready for the Junkpile

These shoes are the sure sign of a lot of junkin miles.  You'll be happy to know they have now been "retired".

Beautiful 1920's Sheet Music

1st Annual Hillsville, Virginia junkfest

This was MY first annual trip...not THE first event.  My dear friend Karen and her mom have been going for years and this year they allowed me to tag along with them.  I had sooo much fun that I'm sure it's going to be an annual event for me in the future.  Here's a picture of us at "Lovers Leap" on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

I hauled home a lot of booty as well as memories.  I'll share some of them with you.

Steppin' Out

I'm very excited to finally have a blog of my very own.  Primative in design....yes.  Uncertain as to what it will become....most definitely!  But at the very least I finally have a place where all my blogging friends can find me.  Onward and upward!
