My Mosaic Flower Pot

Well enough snow has melted where I could finally make it out to my studio! Look what I found, a flower pit I made in the fall and forgot about once I couldn’t make it out there! What do you think? I like it a lot.

Remember These? Retro Bakelite Bottle And Can Openers

So I have been busy these last few months selling vintage and collectibles on eBay and have totally neglected my blog! I know, it’s a problem I can’t seem to outgrow. One of my favorite things to collect and sell is vintage kitchenware. I recently bought a slew of bakelite kitchen and dinning ware and have been listing and selling them in my eBay store Check it out! But today, in my blog post, I am featuring a pair of Bakelite handled bottle and can openers. Remember these? We had a few kicking around our kitchen growing up. I love bakelite! One has a swirled handle and the other is faux horn. I know you want to step back in time and retro up your kitchen or bar! Here is a link to the past

I’m hoping to be better about my posts and post a featured item once a week. I am not a good juggler but I vow to improve!

I’ve joined the Frederick City Market!

I’ve joined the Sunday Farmers Market in Frederick, Md! I’m excited. I will be offering handcrafted items, Mosaics, Decoupage, Photography notecards and garden accents! If your are in the Frederick area come on down! There’s baked goods, wine, live music as well as local produce. It will be great! The Frederick City Market is located on North Market St. between 3rd and 4th St. and runs Sundays 9-1 through October 27th.

Painting the Roses!



This year my Roses exploded!! This picture doesn’t even begin to show the spectacular blooming this plant gave out. Now it’s like walking thru a parade with the petals falling lightly in the breeze and covering everything with a blanket of pink. 🙂 Smile!
