See how this colorful forest of trees transforms...

...into these lovely Christmas trees... 

...and these.  The trees are in vintage silver containers (sugar, creamers, cups, etc.) with some antique laces and topped off with a little bit of bling.

This snowman is in a vintage thread cone covered in vintage sewing pattern paper with a small tree and a couple of mini ornaments. 

These are the 2016 version of my snowman ornament. Each year I make a different ornament for snowman collectors. 

Hope to see you at one of the upcoming shows!

Lots of Cameos

My last post had a photo of a couple of cameos that I created and 
I made a bunch more to add to them. 
There are a variety of cameo styles and I collected a bunch of 
different cameos to upcycle -- they are all beautiful. 
Which style do you like best?

The most popular ones have the side view of a lady's face, 
some are ivory/shell looking and others have a photo of a family member. 
There are also other styles with flowers on them and more with 
romantic victorian scenes on them. I think they are all beautiful.
Here are a bunch of pictures for you to enjoy.

Almost Valentine's Day

Jewelry is a great gift for your lady for Valentine's Day. Here are some great new designs with more to come.

This weekend I will be at the Valentine's Art Market in the Eilandarts Center/
The Station Coffee on Friday evening and then at 
Decotique Antique Shop on Saturday. 
Details below the pictures. 

Some sparkly bling and pretty pearls. All one of a kind.

A collection of cameo jewelry and I have a bunch more in production. Some of these are so different and so pretty. 

This was a plain locket and I added the flower to the front and finished with vintage white beads. 

I painted, distressed and waxed the key and escutcheon and used some vintage pearls and darling mini pink buttons on the chain.

Two one of a kind vintage button pendants.

Key to my heart bracelet in purple.

Heart bracelet

A double strand heart bracelet. 

Some really cute ceramic owl earrings and a necklace. 

A variety of new earrings plus bunches more coming. 

All of this will be with me this weekend. I will also have more vintage linen and 
handkerchief pillows with me like the ones pictured HERE and some special 
handmade Valentine decorations.

If you need something special, just let me know.

Another Craft Show

I will be displaying at the West Collingswood Fire Company Craft Show tomorrow, Saturday, December 12, 2015, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., 152 Nicholson Road, just off of Route 168 in Mt. Ephraim, NJ. They will be selling refreshments and -- SANTA will be there around 12 noon. 

Here are a few recent pics of my booth. 

I love this snowman ornament...

And the antique bottle ornaments. 

These are bottle brush trees in vintage containers -- silver/pewter sugar and creamers. Some of these are sold, but I will have lots more.

Come out and finish up your Christmas shopping, have lunch and tell Santa what's on your list this year!

Ladies Night Out at Decotique

This Friday (December 11, 2015) will be the 2nd Annual Holiday Ladies Night Out at Decotique, 13 Centre Street, Merchantville, NJ, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  

Kate Butler a/k/a/ Decotique is having 20-25% off most of her inventory in the shop. There is free street parking during the holiday season. There will also be a couple of handcrafted vendors (Me Me Me!!) We will also have refreshments for you while you do your shopping. 

Here is a picture of my table at a recent craft show. I added beautiful pillows made from vintage linens. Since they are new I am glad they have been a big hit.

Here is a better photo of the pillows. Some of these are sold, but I do have more.

Here is another pillow picture with more designs, again, not all are available. 

Here are more new holiday items, bottle brush trees in vintage sugar and creamers, decorated vintage bottles and a snowman on a vintage jello mold. It was fun playing with the vintage bits and pieces of lace and blingy jewelry to put these together.

Here is a better picture of Mr. Snowman. I used vintage book paper (in German) for the hat and an old Jello mold for the bottom.

These are some of the other Christmas ornaments I made. There are some hand-painted snowmen and gingerbread men in the back, bottle brush trees on vintage bottles and snowmen heads. 

Along with my jewelry, I will have all of these Christmas items at the 2nd Annual Ladies Night this Friday!

Hope to see you there!

Where I Will Be on Friday the 13th?

Hello, yes it has been awhile, but I am here today, with some news. 

I want to let you know about a craft show where I will be a vendor. It is hosted by the Ballard Spahr law firm in center city Philadelphia. It is on Friday, November 13, 2015. It takes place at the Atrium in the Mellon Center, 1735 Market Street, Philadelphia, from 11:00 am to about 2:00 pm. The Atrium is the level between the building lobby and the concourse (on your way down to the concourse). Spend your lunch hour doing some Christmas shopping! There will be a room full of crafters with lots of ideas for Holiday gifts. 

Here are some of the items I will have displayed.

Some colorful necklaces, a few are already taken!

These necklaces were all made out of vintage clip earrings and beads from vintage necklaces. Love vintage clip earrings - so many things to make out of them!

Like some new bracelets! These and the ones below were made with broken watches. I took the watches apart and attached the earrings to make bracelets.

I like how the bracelets will stay put and not swing around your wrist.

These look like vintage printer blocks but.... (hint--if they were the letters would be backward). I do like the inspirational words. My word would be "Altered". I alter and upcycle everything, especially things for jewelry.

These are cuff/bracelets made from escutcheons from bureau handles. I love fancy drawer handles.

I will also have some Christmas ornaments and decor that I don't have pictures of yet. I will also have a selection of jewelry on sale for 25% off regular price. And... if you spend $25.00 or more you will get a free ornament from the bowl!

Hope to see you there!

What are some of your favorite vintage treasures? Leave a comment and let me know!
