Beautiful Sunset...

While in Solana Beach this past Saturday I took Emily to the beach at sunset so she could run in the surf and hang loose for a while.

When I realized the sunset was reflecting so beautufully on the sand as the tide receded, I took severl shots...this one was the best.

Not bad for a Blackberry Storm2 Camera...

Happy Hump-Day everyone!

Escondido to Solana Beach

This past weekend, Emily and I hit the road to peddle my Gypsy Wares...
First stop, Friday and Saturday was the new home of Linda Carpenter's
Le Maison Rustique, "Urban Barn"

What a cool Venue!  The store was amazing and will be really rockin in a month or so when the dust of the move settles.

A few pics of my display...

On Saturday at the close of business, Emily and I packed the jeep and Headed to Solana Beach for Sunday's show at Out of the Blue.

Another fabulous day, but after three days of travel and hours on the road, it has taken me 2 days to recouperate.

Fabulous Weekend,  meeting wonderful new friends, spending time with old friends
and selling my work with my Daughter,
Doesn't get much better than that!

Chateau De Fleurs...What a weekend!!!

Had an amazing sale weekend at Christie Repasy and Rita Reade's Chateau De Fleurs Sale in Fallbrook this past Friday and Saturday.

It was wonderful to spend time with old friends and meet some new ones as well.

Here are some shots from the weekend!

Debi Beard and I shared a are her fabulous new belts!!

My painted tooled leather belts and over the top buckles...

A Lovely vignette in Sheila's space...

Shirley's Dreamy booth, she sold out of her amazing Pantaloons...
next time I am getting a pair!!!

I really LOVED Sweet Magnolia Farms Cottage Garden Chandelier...
or should I say Flower-de-lier?

Kerri's Jewelry is so organic and lovely...dig the color on her framed display too!

Tricia Samsal always has the most darling goodies!  I bought a dress from her that I adore!
Thank you Tricia!

So, on Saturday I didn't buy a thing.  I was so proud of myself...jealous as I watched some of the dealers scoop up some pretty cool stuff before the shoe officially 
when we arrived on Saturday, a Mother/Daughter, Eloise and Erin.

Before Deb and I even set up and before the other dealers swooped in, we got some great finds
from this talented pair!!

The Tattered House had a great Display and drove all the way from Roseville to join the sale.
Erika, Sandy, Colette and Katy had beautiful treasures. Thinking I need a road trip just to go see them and visit  my gal pal Kasey who lives in Auburn!

Rita's beautiful Birdhouse...boy can she woodwork!

Victoria and Sabrina's booth.
Chandelier cookies too pretty to eat and just as yummy as they look!

I wanted to try to do a grab and run with this dress form because I NEEEEED
another dress form, really I DO!
But thought they might be able to I.D. me too easily.

Gina's beautiful jewelry and I adore these silver mirrors!

Gail and Pam's Booth...I am going to get this really cool piece from Gail...she doesn't know it yet though!!!

Last but certainly no least, the Hostess with the Mostess,
a shot of Christie's work.

Christie and Rita hosted an amazing event.  Rita's husband Dean cooked for us.
He is an awesome chef!
Their hospitality is overhwelming and you can't help but feel like you are part of their family.

Join us again in June for another lovely event!

Vintage Bling is having sale!!!!

As many of my nearest and dearest friends have harangued me for some time now...I am ever so Slightly moving away from making jewelry and doing more painting.

I will never completely leave it as I ADORE jewlery, but I am scaling back.

The goal is to paint more and paint some more and take my original images, 
incorporating them into wearable art.

So, back to the sale!
Ebay Babey...

Visit my store to see what is for sale and if you know someone who loves to make jewelry and needs some supplies...refer them pretty please.

I have some killer deals!

Thrilling Thursday!

I had the most wonderful day with my friends Rita & Christie!

They came out to my house and we went Treasure Hunting in Ontario/Pomona.
Antique and girlfriends and Thrift stores, oh My!!!!

Then back to my house for home made Quiche!

Here is a shot of my goods I scored today...
Two pairs of killer cowboy boots, a crazy cool oval frame with flowers that will be repainted...maybe a mirror inside, shabby YUMMY Birdcage...a pillow for my couch, a tapestry carpet bag coat that was only $22...(can you believe it?) a jar full of jewels, a silver footed bowl and lastly a vintage jewelry box.

Too see what I transform these treasures into, join me in a couple weeks at Christie's Sale.


Wonderful day with truly the best treasures of all...
My girlfriends.

These boots are made for walkin'...

My newest creations...

I wanted to wear these boots badly on Sunday, but decided they needed to be on the table to be sold.
A very lovely lady named Kathy just fell in love with these Yummy Boots and away they went.
  I am making a custom ring for her, so hopefully when I see her at next months Mermaid Mercantile to pick up her ring she wears them that day for me to see!

Well, y'all know I just LOOOOVE birds, so this pair I just adored.
The Belt sold Sunday too.
So much time and love goes into each one of a kind creation, that sometimes it is like letting go of a child...okay, not so dramamtic here.  I just Love what I do and am blessed to be able to do it!

Until tomorrow...
I need to go find more boots!!!!
