Look at my weekend flea market finds - vintage picnic basket, various jewelry pieces, glove box, jewelry box with ballerinas, MOTHER plaque, leather ring box, filigree metal bowl, miniature dollhouse dresser, and a lidded dresser jar. Woo hoo!! What goodies did you find?

My spool art to be in Greencraft Magazine, and here is my latest upcycle project...

I was notified recently that some of my spools will be featured in the August issue of GreenCraft Magazine, a Stampington publication. (Those spools are not pictured here). Of course, I do realize that something else could get priority, and mine could get pushed forward to another issue, but I'm happy they think it worthy....

Here's my latest upcycle - You've seen the pedestal plates made by bonding a plate to a candleholder? Well, here are some unique pedestal jars I made by bonding a glass base (candleholder) to vintage jars.

Shabby Shops in a Box Gifts, and "Beauties in Blue" Tags

I've been busy making tags - here are a sample of some gifts that will be included in the Shabby Shops in a Box, first boxes going out in June - Check it out!

And next is a set of my "Beauties in Blue" tags. I'm listing them in my webstore. I have tons of buttons, vintage lace, and trinkets and baubles that I have been collecting for years, and I love to use them to create with. When I spy any of those at tag sales or flea markets, they're mine!!!

Hope you have a fabulous day!
