Best Intentions ...

Saturday in Portland!
This picture is a grouping of my work. I looked at it for a minute thinking that's really nice - then realized it was my mine! She makes it all look so nice! Thank you, Aleta.
After leaving Flourishes, we visited the Monticello Antique Mall. They were having a Garden Sale. We found a some treasures there - actually it would be hard not to find something there! Most of my purchases were bits and pieces to make other things. Not too exciting to picture at this point.
From there, we landed in Sellwood and wound up the day walking through the three STARS locations. Of course we found some lunch and had to have coffee for the trip home!
I must get busy and place new items on my pathetic website. It has been so long since it has been updated. I promise to get some new items pictured and - if you see something you can't live without - you can purchase it by contacting me by email. I'll let you know when it is updated! I will also be listing future shows that I will be participating in throughout the summer and fall. Hope to see you there! M.

Fresh New Items at Flourishes!

Warm at Heart
While I was out cleaning off the SUV to go the an event at the Saturday public market, one of the neighbors wished me a Merry Christmas as he walked by. Funny guy.
The event went well and I brought home some fresh treats: locally made smoked gouda cheese (ultra, mega yummy), artisan bread, and these beautiful tulips. I sat down with a steaming, hot cup of joe and decided that warmth, this spring, is going to have to come from within. From the heart. Just an extended yuletide jolliness -- really extended. In spite of the snowflakes, all the vendors and shoppers at the public market were in great spirits. Such friendly, nice people. It was a really positive atmosphere and I look forward to going again soon. It was cold outside, but the warmth of everyone made you forget that there was snow on April 19th.
Time to get back into my workroom. This is an old clipboard that I had fun embellishing the other day. Warm wishes for a great weekend!

Warm Sunshine - at Last
One is lacy with MOP buttons... another is frilly ...
Others are sparkley!
Each one was fun and I hope to get more made before the next event at Flourishes! M.

Shopping, Good Friends and Creamy Gravy
It's funny because we all find things for each other. No trying to outdo each other, no elbowing or hair pulling and shreaking - just an all around good time! After shopping, we had to have a little breakfast -- more like the "classic heart attack on a plate". But, oh, is it so good. Homemade hashbrowns and country sausage gravy - washed down with a diet cola, of course.
After enjoying that healthy start to the day, we have to look at all the great things we found and ooh and aahh and giggle with delight like little girls. I think the best part of this little flea market is spending time with these sweet, creative women. They make it special. Thanks you guys!
I took a couple of pictures of my purchases. This little cabinet is unusual and looks like two pieces that have been married into one. I will separate them and add some little touches to them.
This is a picture of the rest of the goodies I found.
There is a birdhouse, a Majolica-like small plate, baby socks and booties, pearl necklaces, old pictures and ephemera. Not pictured is a white, linen tablecloth to make pillows and an old, black picture frame. The next picture is just a grouping that was so sweet I had to take a picture of it. I love those creamy tones. These pieces belong to one of the vendors at the flea market. She was nice enough to allow me to take a picture.
In addition to all this stuff, I found a few things at Friday estate sales. There were some old wire baskets, glass knobs, an old suitcase, a primitive wooden stool, and the best -- four bags of white, mother-of-pearl buttons. Woo-hoo!!! After this buying frenzy, I came home and starting making some crowns out of aviary wire, glitter, lace and tinsel. I'll show them to you later this week. Right now it's time to head to the kitchen and whip up some dinner. I know, you're thinkin' how can she eat after that breakfast? It's for my hubby and besides that, breakfast was eight hours ago and it was just a half order of hashbrowns and.......
