if you love

decor
http://shabbyinlove.blogspot.it/

i have found 
more eye candy in 
one place
than you will be
able to stand !!


spending the weekend
blog hopping
pinning
facebooking
has led me to discover
an amazing 
italian blog


 it's not all decor,
it seems to just 
be whatever
tickles her fancy  



there are some things
lost in the translation
(try to read the 'about' page)

but the photos
speak for themselves


if you are a pinner


you will
lose your mind


wanting to pin 
EVERY 
picture

i dont know who runs it
and i'm not affiliated at all

seriously
she had me at hello !


just passing on
an 
amazing find
to 

* * *
32,000
cant be wrong !! 

Note::
since this post aired...this blog and facebook page have seemed
to disappear....i'm so sad, because i had just 
discovered them...and i love them !!
it's truly a mystery ??
if anyone has a clue...please let me know..thanks

bubble jewelry !

* * *

happy new year to all !!!
this blog is about my trails and tribulations..
mostly about my travels...
but...cold, snow, winter..
not my traveling time..
 - - 
so i am going to take some time to show you what i do...
you know i travel to fleas 
and you know i sell at shows...
but do you know what i make ?
i am going to feature each of my designs
in the next few weeks
just so you know what it's all about 
one of my favorite items
are
 
 bubbles
we have
we'll use any word you desire
cut from vintage recycled dictionaries 
- - - 
 
we have
 clipped from vintage recycled
hymnals and children's music books
- - - 
 
 we have 
number bubbles

 also clipped from hymnals
i just love the old fonts !
- - -
 
and we even have 
  these also come from vintage dictionaries
 - - -
our bubbles are small
about the size of a dime
 
they are perfectly round
and
then come with a 24" ball chain
so..next time you need a gift..
think of a word that describes your friend
perhaps..a lucky number..
or even a 'finger spelling' letter..
how unique is that ???      

_ _ _
thanks for letting me share my designs with you

gratitude all around

* * *

i have just finished up my 7th year as 
juNxtaposition



(pause for effect)

* * *

and i have to say that this year has surpassed 
all expectations ever !

it has been a ridiculously amazing year

i need to spread some gratitude around
to the people who help make this life possible
for me

* * *

i started the year heading to texas !!
longest ... trip ...  EVER

could never have made the drive 
without my pal

suellyn

she also helped me survive 
the other country living fairs this year in
ohio and atlanta...

i could not have  done them with out her !!!!

* * *

a HUGE thank you to my other travel companions
and lucy of bel monili


having someone to help with the planning, 

be it show choosing,
travel arrangements,
display ideas...

any and all aspects of the 'show life'
is invaluable

not to mention the 'after show' fun we've had this
year cant be beat !!!


 * * *

i have to thank my 'other life' clients
without who's understanding this 
could never have happened !!
especially my friend Bill who has
gone above and beyond on the 
'understanding' front this year....
