Old Dolls

Saturday, November 29, 2014


My friend, Mary in Cape May, New Jersey loves the flea markets & junk shops just like I do.
I was so surprised when a little package came in the mail from her.....
This sweet little lady in her velvet dress made herself at home with a few friends.


Below is my collection. I've been picking these up at the flea markets for years. I hung up an old pink tray from an antique trunk for the display shelf.

First Birthday

Sunday, August 17, 2014


I haven't been able to get much done this summer because of this cute little lady above.
Can you blame me? Just look at that face..she is quite a distraction.
My granddaughter, Aubrie turned one this month.


I designed this sweet party hat for her party....& the flowers too.
I used white chalk paint on the mason jars & loved how they turned out.
Looking forward to many happy days, cuddles & smiles with this beautiful girl.

My craft show tent

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Coming up this Saturday, June 21, 2014 
I will be set up in historic Ocean Grove, New Jersey by the shore
for the 32nd annual Giant Craft Show


I have been sewing like crazy making my tablecloth & banners....
as well as collecting old drawers & creates that I re-purposed as my displays bins.
My tablecloth is made from painters drop cloths.
I painted everything in the color "aloha" (HomeDepot) to tie it all together.

By the way..do you like the banner on my tent?
Stop by & see Rita at etsy shop squier. She is amazing to work with!


Over the winter at the flea market I found this "board" 
not sure what it was originally used for but I converted it into a chalkboard
One of my favorite $5 finds.


Recycled from the scrap yard.


Since we are on the beach...
sweet salt water taffy for my customers
and below are some of my pins to attach to your beach bag!

Sharing a little pink...

Saturday, June 14, 2014

This is one of my creations that is perfect for Pink Saturday!
I found some vintage paper doilies at an estate sale & had to find something special to do with them.
So what's better than attaching it to a pretty girl in pink!
She makes me want tea.



Have a perfectly pink day!
Stop in and check out all the pink goodness over at How Sweet the Sound.

Vintage Pink Jewelry Box

Friday, April 25, 2014

These are just a few of my vintage jewelry pieces 
that I have collected from flea markets.
(I was organizing today)
I've been buying them for a dollar or two
 with the intention of breaking them up & adding to other projects.
Sometimes I find that hard to do..
I end up just treasuring them or wearing them!
Happy Pink Saturday!

For more pink stop by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound
