I love taking bits and pieces from the past and creating something new to enjoy. A tiny piece of lace or an old picture is my inspiration. I think if these elements could talk, they would have such an interesting story to tell.
A few weeks ago I was invited to place some of my Halloween collection in a delightful and interesting little store in the Pearl District in NW Portland - Thea's Interiors on NW Glisan. It is an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage finds and a variety of unique, original pieces. Wonderful! Not only wonderful - it's BOOtiful! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
A couple weeks ago, my husband and I met our friends Betty and Steve for lunch. Before lunch, we visited Thea's to see this special place for ourselves. We weren't disappointed.
What a little treasure trove!
Here are a few pictures of some of my creations in Thea's. I seemed to have
a thing for fabulous shoes this fall!
A few more little creations to get you into the Halloween spirit!
More shoes! Aren't those great? They are the real thing - a must see and must have.
Sparkly wands to cast a spell ...
and a few pics of the family - just for laughs!
Take some time and visit Thea's - it is frightfully fabulous! M. Store info on the left.
The Vintage Halloween BOOOtique was a huge success! Thank you to everyone. Now I just have to start planning the 2nd Annual Vintage Halloween BOOOtique! Here are a few pictures taken before the sale began.
Diane, Elf Patty and I before the show. Many thanks to both of them and to Betty (who couldn't attend). I am blessed to have such wonderful friends.
In case you couldn't make it to the sale last Saturday, Thea, of Thea's Interiors on NW Glisan in Portland, has many, many more of my Halloween items in her shop. She is participating in First Thursday in the Pearl - tonight! I sent plenty of Halloween to decorate your home and get you in the spirit! Stop by and check out her beautiful shop. See more information on Thea's shop on the left. M.
After hours and hours of creating, planning, making, marketing, glueing, cutting, pricing, placing, stewing and stressing ... I think I'm ready for the 1st Annual Vintage Halloween Boootique! Here is a little peek of what to expect.
Before all the hoopla and fun, I would like to thank everyone that helped make this little endeavor possible. You know who you are, but I'll say it anyway: Hubby Mark, Elf Patty, Betty and Diane. I'm very blessed to have such supportive, talented friends. Also, thanks to everyone that helped me get the "word" out. More pictures later this weekend. It's time to shuffle off to bed .... yawnnnnnn.... M.
