A Snapshot of earrings that will be available at the Olde Depot JUNKtion show this weekend.
Have a terrific sunny day! Kris
Funny thing about time, it just keeps ticking… Moving forward!
I am making chains like a mad woman today!!
I am never going to get all my photos taken so I will probably have to give up on it and take photos of my favorites.
Here are three of my fav’s
My backgrounds are treasures from my Grandparents estate.
Okay, back to making chains! Have a lovely day!! Kris
A few quick photos today… The necklace above one of my fav’s… Funky vintage hinge pictured on a box from my Grandparent’s estate.
The same necklace pictured on a cool little book I bought at the sale… Notice the Tiffany’s Ad… The book is from 1911.
Here is another shot of the ad.
And I an not sure what this was, but it is going to be a part of my new jewelry display… I remember seeing it in my Grandparents attic. I quickly laid some necklaces on it.
I am going to have to be a little more deliberate with their placement.
Hope you are having a magical day! Kris
Good Morning My Friends!
It was a whirlwind of a weekend and this week is going to fly by too.
I am feeling pressure (self induced) to try to accomplish everything I want/need to accomplish prior to the weekend. It is finally here! The Okde Depot JUNKtion! I am incredibly excited, especially about my display! For Mother’s Day, Tom and the kids built me a frame for a burlap background. I can’t wait to show you pics!
Saturday we had a blast at the Cystic Fibrosis walk. Two families in our circle of friends have children that are affected and they are the most amazing people! Thankful to have been
A part if it. I have some cute pics but they are stuck on my camera and I need to charge it to get to them.
Later in the day, the boys were four-wheeling down by the river.
Oh. My. Word.
This was earlier, before his buddy got stuck in the mud! Wish I had thought to take pics later!
Keegan gave me a ride down to see the muddy mess his friend was in!
And his friend had to be towed out. Good lessons!
Yesterday was bittersweet. It was the auction of my Grandparents Estate. It is sad to see so many years of amazing collectible items sold at an action. Items their loving hands touched over the years. There was more emotion behind the scenes, but I won’t go into that here.
The sweet part was that I did “win” some pretty fantastic items.
The moment I saw it, I knew that this was the item that I wanted. It is very primitive, kind of rough, but totally me. I am pretty confident it was at my Grandparent’s hardware store they used to own.
It took forever to get to it. I was filled with nervousness and anticipation! Can I tell you that I was in shock that apparently someone else wanted it as much as I did… A bidding war ensued, and I was the victor!! I payed way more than I wanted to, had some regretful thoughts about spending so much, but I am incredibly thankful I got it. This morning I woke with a happy feeling that it will stay in the family!
My jewelry trays fit perfectly!
I know my Grandpa would have wanted me to have it.
I bought some cool architectural wood elements too, super excited about taking photos with some of my family treasures.
Love! Love! Love this white architectural piece.
It’s kind of dark & gloomy out this morning so the light wasn’t perfect for photos, but I had to show you!
I hope you have an amazing day!!
It was a crazy week. Fun… Jam packed… Fulfilling.
I had a fun girls day with my friends on Thursday. We went to many garage sales. (Missed you G!) We had a fantastic dinner outside on the patio at a local restaurant.
I found some incredible vintage treasures… And found a treasure trove of volleyball clothing, brand new with tags on! Truly a lucky day!!
Yesterday I had a fun visit with Melissa and her Mom, stopped at a few antique stores.
I had a joyful visit with my sister at her store, Bloom Coffee & Floral. I took a few pics of her latest work to show you.
Meet Noble (actually NOBULL) lol. She is incredibly talented!
Here he is settled in his current home.
And here is my sister’s spring vignette.
I found the coolest rusty old drawers that I hoped would work for a display for all of my new cuffs…
I am so excited, they work perfectly!
And look who’s helping me take photos …
We celebrated the final track meet of the season last night… Brr. It was ccccold!
I am creating with a vengeance for my upcoming show. Hope you are having a terrific weekend! Kris
Happy Wednesday! Jeepers the days are slipping by!
I refilled the muffin tin and started over with my inspirational self challenge.
One of these days I am really going to have to focus on taking some photos. My pile is growing!
Have a FUNtastic day!! I hope you can do what YOU love!
Happy Mother’s Day wishes to each and every one of you (Belated! Sorry!)
Special Mother’s Day wishes to my Mom! So thankful to have her with us to CeLEbRaTe!!
For all of you selfless Moms, I hope someone pampered you!!
My kids (and sweet husband) did a fantastic job of pampering me Saturday. It was so much fun! And we had a fun family day Sunday!
I have been creating with a vengeance since that time. Having a blast…
Here are a couple of my newest…
Okay, time to get back to work!
Have a great day! Kris
