recreated things.....

And people that think they are "queen things"

  19. Exquisite. I do too have a little store, I don't think is about the size, it is about how much love you put into every creation. I don't think my costumers mind the size as much as the little trinkets they can find there. Much luck with your sale tomorrow. Blessings, Marta.

  26. Loved your Open House. Everything was beautiful.
    Can hardly wait to read your write-up in Somerset Life. Enjoyed seeing all the beautiful things
    and visiting with your mom and hubby.

  27. Lovely goods and I hope it was all that you hoped for at your open house. You have such wonderful talent and taste. I see your photos on flickr too. How beautiful you are! Inside and out. Dawn and Lisa too.

  28. What a delightful day Carolyn and I had yesterday at your open house. I sprang wide awake today with ideas for things that were due for the dump. The metal candlesticks were stripped of their flowers and are ready for a coat of white paint as are several other pieces. Thanks again for all the fun. Oh, please post your address on your blog as others may not be so lucky to find someone at the Melrose Community Center who can give good directions.

  29. Love Love all of those things. Hey, I tried to get a hold of you and tell you that you were my 150th follower, and I wanted to send you an ornament. Please email me at with your mailing address, so I can send it to you. Wish I could come to Texas and see your shop in real life.
