certain Mad Hatter frenzying about the evening!! 
Tickets can be purchased in advance through Paypal using the Deepwood link above or by calling 503-363-1825.  Tickets can also be purchased at the gate on Friday evening.
On Saturday, September 15th, the Vintage Flea Market will open with FREE ADMISSION from

treats and lunch selections. 
Where do I fit into the picture?  I am one of  a long, long list of fabulous vendors from all over the Willamette Valley.  (See listing below).   This year Deepwood is even opening up the Carriage House and it will be filled to the rafters with treasures! 
You can find me in the south end of the garden
under the "Bird Cage" gazebo.  Look for the illuminated floral lanterns. 

Don't wait -- purchase your tickets today!  Who wouldn't enjoy shopping for unique antiques and collectibles in beautiful Deepwood formal gardens with an Alice in Wonderland twist?!?  Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and maybe even an appearance from Alice herself! 
See the vendor list and details below.

Introducing the 2012 Pumpkins

If you have followed me for a while, you know that each Fall I make a different type of pumpkin.
There have been burlap covered pumpkins, muslin covered pumpkins, cheesecloth covered pumpkins ...  If I liked the look, I covered a pumpkin with it!

Over the past year I have created may different things using repurposed books.
I thought why not continue with this theme - it only seems natural to turn a "cake"
into a "pumpkin"!  Natural, right, I know. 
In the '60s, women started folding books to make Christmas trees, angels, Santas, etc.
This crafty trend has re-emerged, I hope, in a more sophisticated form.

There is a whole crop of these little cuties filling up my front window seat!

They are just one little part of what I have been creating for my
Vintage Halloween Bootique!
See details in the bar to the left and  ... don't forget ...
New Location:  in the Carriage House at
Historic Deepwood Estate
located at the corner of Mission & 12th Streets in Salem, Oregon.
Get out your Hi-liter and draw a big bright circle
on your calendar around September 28th & 29th.
Be There or Beware !!!  M.
