Met Jenny and Sue at The Exit 76 Antique Mall in Indiana. Jenny has a booth that she fills with cool vintage items,collectables, and cool hand crafted items. I fell in love with a wonderful mixed media pillow and button topped stool.
Susan has saved all the dog tags from every pet she has ever loved. So one day she came to my studio to learn to make them into a charm bracelet. Results adorable!! I have all my dogs tags in such a safe place that I can't find them. But when I do I will make myself a bracelet that will be adorable too!!
Sam is a huge fan of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings franchise. Me...not so much. Middle earth seems too dark and violent. That is until today. Went to see the Hobbit in 3/D Imax and loved the entire adventure.
The hobbit village is enchanting. I love the craftsman details and could have spent 3 hours in Bilbo Boggins cottage. The Elf village with the Elf Queen, Kate Blanchet, was so Maxfield Parish. Loved the costumes, make up etc. Fun lark for a rainy Saturday.
Lynn's is my favorite place to take out of towners. Yesterday, there was an unflattering story in the news about employee relations @ Lynn's. It seemed to be a fixable situation but now rumors abound that Lynn's is closing. Who closes a successful business?
Rick celebrates the day of his birth with recent newly born 5 months old Greyson Medley. Greyson (Rick's great nephew)spent the evening laughing out loud, spitting up, and taking short naps. The rest of us spent the evening just laughing out loud. The naps begin today. As for spitting up. I hope those days are over.
Have you ever just laughed out loud while scrolling down your news feed on Face Book! I did when my bud Kent Epler changed his profile pic to this one! I'll see Kent soon and get the scoop on this picture. My guess.....from his past life in the Theatre. Or he really is The Laughing Boy!
This is for all the jewelry junkies out there wondering where Jamison Brumm has been. She has unoffically retired and spends most of the year in Florida where 4 of her grandchildren reside.
The entire Clan was in Florida over the holidays. This picture includes 5 grandchildren, 3 sons, 3 wives, Jamie and Bill. Perfection!
Recently, Greg and Theresa, did a play with the Somerset Community College Theatre and Film. Love this picture! You might know Theresa from her Kibby Kritters jewelry line. Her first love is theatre then Greg then jewelry.
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
