A-huntin' We Will Go!!!

Oh, what fun we had today, at the last Scott's Antique Show in Columbus until next winter.  The dealers were dealing, the crowds were out in full force, and it was fun!  Here's a sampling of stash that I scored today!

Aren't the suitcases just lovely?  I found two of them today, and I have a third one stashed in my collection.  Not sure if I can ever give these up, they are so gorgeous and clean.

With baby showers and all that fun coming up in the spring and summer, those little baby shoes will turn into great little gifts themselves, pincushions, gift embellishments, who knows??? 

My gentleman farmer held out really well today, through all the rows of booths and stuff to look at!  We wore ourselves out, but, boy, was it ever fun!

Who Wants To Play???

Well, it's the end of the week, and I am ready to go antiquing and yard sailing tomorrow, and ready to work on my crafty crafts.  I hope to host some "me time" craft tutorials this summer for all you local ladies who are itching to create, spend a few hours with other creative colleagues, and make something beautiful to take home and share!!!  Look at my bling and other things!!!

Mmmmm!  Yummy fun - salt shakers and bottles and glitter and bling!!!  Tell me what you want to learn to create!!!  Everyone have a crafty and fun weekend.  Warmer weather brings more yard sales - yay!

It's Eastertime at Honey Grove Botanicals!

It's Spring, Easter, and bunnies are everywhere.  Just check out The Little Black Chair in Honey Grove Botanicals, in Gahanna.  Here are a few pictures of what's available, including my gourds and necklaces, and all sorts of Easter decor mixed in with the sweetness of Barb's botanical concoctions!!!  Stop by and see what we have for you!

I spent most of the weekend resting and trying to beat the blahs, aches, and pains.  Rainy weather makes it doubly difficult to manage. However, the new shop and the support of Jeannine and Barb make a lot of the pain at least easier to bear.  My honey helps, too, but don't let anyone know - he's a tough guy!!!xoxo
My latest little sewing project - another upcycled cotton apron.  See the details of the lace and the button flower?  I love the details, not sure if I want to put a bib on this apron or leave it as a half apron.

A New Home for My Art

Here is Honey Grove Botanicals, a gorgeous little shop in the Creekside district of Old Gahanna, 116 Mill Street, where I now have some of my artwork available for sale.  The shop has lovely consigned items from local artisans, and its owner creates beautiful fragranced art in the form of candles, soaps, bath fizzies, and many other sweet concoctions.  Right now some of my slates are in the house, as well as my antique boards with wolves painted on them, and some Scrabble tile jewelry I have been making over the winter months.  Soon my handraised, handpainted gourds will be available as well, once we find a good spot for them in the shop.  Jeannine is a new friend of mine, who decorates and arranges the shop and works with potential vendors, and she has given me great opportunity by allowing me to display my work here.  Please take some time and stop into the shop, meet Barb and see what she is creating today.  Watch for new things happening in Old Gahanna at the Honey Grove Botanicals.  Fun and creativity!!!
