Tree Lighting in town on a beautiful evening. It was unseasonably warm. Met up with some good friends that were in town from Colorado and ran into other local friends and rang in the Holiday season. Sent drama darling back to college yesterday and already miss her terribly and cannot wait for the holiday break and having her home longer.

I have extended my SALE for any that may of missed the Saturday Small Business day. It will run through today Monday in both my shops, see details on previous post!

Hope you all enjoy time with family and friends this past weekend and through the following month.

I have done it all by proud, actually created my own website from scratch just in time for the holidays. I wanted to create an online boutique that I could sell my jewelry and altered art along with that of other artists that I admire and want to support. I plan on taking it on the road {locally that is, for now} to art shows, home shows, business shows, flea markets, etc.
Please take a look:

Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what I have to start. The girls at have created some beautiful one of a kind pieces for me to debut on my new site. The Snow Divas designed by Lisa are so adorable, created from vintage bottles and pieces. A true one of a kind holiday gift for yourself or someone on your list. Once they are sold they are gone.

Jeannie has made unique one of a kind earrings out of broken china and all vintage components. Each pair is also one of a kind.

I had artist Teresa Sheeley make up some one of a kind bags for me that you can tote your books, knitting, groceries you name it in style.

and some of her tea towels

I will be adding new pieces of jewelry as they come off my bench, here are some of the newest.

Click on the link on top of my sidebar to go to Tart and of course my jewelry designs will always be on my etsy site {also on the sidebar}.
