I usually hang all my ornaments on my tree, with loads of vintage beaded garland and icicles. But, this year, I picked out my favorites and displayed them in glass containers. I love being able to see them all with their beautiful colors and little details.
(These are displayed on a heart shaped candle holder)
My tree this year is covered in white, glittered snowflakes and white twinkly lights...that's all.
And I really love it!

This is my (partial) collection of sequined ornaments. I do still LOVE these! I just love that someone made and designed each and every one of them. I love the funky colors and off-the-wall patterns on some of them. Obviously, some of the ladies had their own ideas and didn't follow the patterns on the kit!
Back to shopping and wrapping!!

I've just started decorating my house for the Holidays. These are my Santa mugs I've been collecting for years. I finally had to STOP! It was ridiculous! They are just so nostalgic to me...we only had a couple when I was growing up, not enough for my 3 sisters and me to each have one. I guess that's why I had to get enough for any and all who come to my house now!
I will share more of my collections as I get them out.

Here we are!
These are some of the other vendors at the Market.
Jackie Peters and Franc Franke.
Definitely voted Most Popular! They had customers lined up outside waiting to get in and devour their beautiful paper art. Jackie also teaches classes at Paper Crown.Robin Thomas kept us in "stitches" all day. She creates the lovliest, coziest, knitted scarves and shrugs as well as sews precious, unique dolls. You can find her creations on Etsy too!
Holly Abston was there with her sweet, handmade ornaments and repurposed, vintage jewelry. (Unfortunately, you can't see it because she sold almost all of it!)Ann Denise of Whim and Fancy Designs came from Ft. Worth, TX!
She brought her crepe paper creations and also taught a class.
This is a small market with BIG potential!

As the show progressed, Debbie and I chit-chatted and realized, as different as our backgrounds were, we were alot alike. We had an immediate connection, and it must have been fate that our spaces were practically right next to each other.
Okay, back to Debbie and her good news! Debbie has been featured in the November issue of Where Women Create! It is a wonderful article! Please be sure to find a copy somewhere and look her up. Her artwork is beautiful as is her message about being your true creative self.
You can find Debbie at her blog
or her website, The Beat of My Art.
And, I have the privilege of saying:
"THAT'S MY FRIEND!"

This is the entry to my house:
These look like giant owls to me in their nests.
(My daughter thinks this is creepy.)
My dress form in her witching attire.
A witch I made several years ago protects the guest bedroom.
(I have a tub full of witches I haven't finished...will that ever happen??)
Unfortunately, I will probably not be getting to any Halloween paintings. So, I will stop stressing and just enjoy the season!
