So glad you stopped by today. Hope you had a blessed Easter -- and now we're happily just beginning spring......... flowers blooming (which means digging in the dirt - good-bye little fingernails...I can never leave my gloves on!), and warmer weather - woo hoo...we're so done with that "S" word in Ohio! Oh and the beginning of garage sale season - it doesn't get much better! (I'll be checking the newspaper to see where I can run to on my lunch hour on Thursday - ha ha!)
I've just been crazy busy with prep for three shows in the next month, not to mention yard work, helping with an estate sale, and most importantly...life! Anyway, I want to update you on where Terri and I are going to be, and what we've been up to.
We're doing our very first art show. We're so excited because we're bringing all sorts of handcrafted treasures made from vintage bits and pieces - jewelry, collages, pincushions, paperweights, button bouquets, and more. We've both been busy as bees - Terri in her loft, and me in my basement. So, we'll have two tables of some very unique "junk creations"!
The show is called Artiscape, and here are the details:

Here's a sampling of what I've created.....a table full of junk fun! I could just camp out in my basement and play for days................
Here's a little more...
A timely piece of wall art...see "Old Tyme" collage for all the little details at JUNKMARKETSTYLE.COM
A little piece of France...oooh la la! In its former life, this pretty little piece of glass was a candleholder, and turned upside down it becomes a paperweight!
Some sweet pincushions - re-using some vintage/antique planters and scraps of antique fabric and lace, etc. - for jewelry display, pins for your sewing area, or just because!
Button and earring "rings" displayed on a rusty candelabra..
