Flea Market

Hi everyone, Sis and I went to the flea market this week end.  It was a beautiful day and we found a few things.  I found some lovely old buttons.  I love buttons, can't get enough of them.

The little round white one with the champagne rhinestones is all glass.  It is beautiful.  The photo does not do it justice.

I have been working on fabric brooches this week have a few finished.  They are really fun to make, kind of like a mini canvas to work on.

I will be listing these in my Esty shop later today.

Going to take a couple of hours from the studio today and go fishing with hubby, so many fishing boats out today it has given us the bug.  Have a great day.

I don't know is Spring is really here, but I am going to enjoy these beautiful days to the fullest.  It is so nice to open all the windows and go out on the deck with a cup of tea first thing in the morning.  I have just recently discovered that I would rather have a cup of tea than a cup of coffee.  Spiced Chai is my favorite, with a teaspoon of honey to sweeten just a little.

Our miniature peach tree is in total bloom, it has never bloomed this early before.  I hope we don't get a freeze that will ruin all the buds and blooms.   We have a set of bluebirds making a nest in an old bird house that we have in the yard.  Every year they come and nest.  I love to watch them.

My daughters  husband takes beautiful pictures and has created a website, if you would like to take a look at his photos here is his site Ed.  I also have it on my sidebar.  My hubby has started sculpting again.  He loves making Old World Santas from around the world.   He wants to make them authentic to the country so if anyone has any good information on the correct clothes, etc he would love the info.

I have been busy lately getting things ready for out booth at the antique mall.  The end of March they are having an event called March Back in Time.   Lots of demonstrations of crafts of old and a Civil  War encampment will be set up.  Hoping for a large crowd.

Here is a wall hanging I created for the event.

I made some new needle books as well, these will be listed in my Etsy shop later today.  

My nephew works for an equestrian center in Texas that does unique therapy for children and adults with disabilities.  They are having a fundraiser in April.  I created this wall hanging as a donation for the silent auction.  

Everyone have a great day.

I Missed the Sale

The Joann's store here in my area is moving to a larger space and I just found out.  They had all of the fabrics on sale at 75% off.  By the time I got there they only had 4 little racks left.  Oh well, the good thing is now they will have a larger store.

I did get some things finished this week.   I bought this photo from an Etsy shop and here is what I created with it.

I love the photo.  This photo does not show it very well.  Just look at how the boy is looking at the girl, so adoringly.  It made me think the boy was taking his new bride home to meet mom. What do you think?

Cricket our little dog gave us a scare this week.  She had an allergic reaction to something.  She had hives all over her body.  Called the vet and she said to give her Benadryl and to watch and make sure her throat did not swell.  The medicine worked but it made her very hyper so we were up all night long.  I didn't mind since it made her better.  She is back to her normal self.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs, Jackie
