Some items won't fit in my shoppe!

Well, I have a few items that are for sale but won't fit in my shoppe!  I am going to put the pictures on here and if you are interested in purchasing them just send me an email!  The first email will get the item.

Set of two ornaments!  The mitten is 3 1/2 inches tall and the stocking is 4 1/4 inches tall not including the wire hanger.  They are $6.00 for the set and the buyer pays actual shipping.  I will also combine shipping for multiple items.

This is a neat old little box that I painted with a winter scene.  It measures 4 3/4w  x 2 1/2t x 3d.  It would be a perfect little box to add some room scent or a gift card or an ornament to for a nice gift!  It is $10.95 and the buyer pays actual shipping.




After the show!

Well, the shows are all over and I have tons of stuff left!  I have been listing everything in my online shop.  You can get to that by clicking on any item on the left.  Be sure to check out both pages!  If you are interested in anything or have any questions please email me!  I am ready to put up my Christmas decorations so this stuff needs to go!hee hee

The show is over!

Well, my show is over and I have tons of stuff left!  It is just because I worked really really hard to have lots to pick from!  I did pretty good at the show.  So, now I will be selling the left over goodies online for the next week or so then I will take it to a booth that I have locally!  I have no room in my house for any leftovers because its almost time to put up the Christmas decorations!  Yeaaaa!  I can't wait!

Here are some pics of my booth!!!

So check back often because I will be putting new things in my online selling booth every time I get a minute!  Please email me with any questions and everything will sell on a first come basis.....I think my booth should not let more than one person buy at a time but I set it up for email sales just to be sure.  I don't want anyone to be disappointed!

Some of my treasures!

Sunday I got busy painting all day!  It was the most fun I had in a while!  I was excited to paint some of my treasures that I found in the barn!

This is an old thermos that I dug up that didn't have a lid!  We didn't need that lid anyway!

I made a couple sets of these old metal measuring spoon ornaments!  I should have gotten more cause they are so darn cute but I wanted some for me to use!!!

This is a little bucket I am going to make into a prim Christmas tree.

I didn't find this bucket at the barn, it was a local shop that has a booth I can't stay out of.  I love the teal color that is original to the bucket.  I haven't decide yet if it will be a tree or maybe just an arrangement but it is one of my favorite designs to paint!

This also came from a local shop.  It is a small enamelware cup that I probably shouldn't have painted!  A very old one!  I put some yummy sweet annie in it.  It is perfect for a little gift for a friend or teacher!

Well, as much as I would love to stay and chat I have painting to do.  There are some more awesome things coming up so keep watching!  I will be listing everything I have after the craft show!

The Barn!

This weekend we went to the most awesome junk place!  It was a huge barn stuffed to the ceiling with junk!  We dug around in there for 5 hours or maybe more!  I don't think there is any way to see everything or dig everything out.  The owner Bill was so nice and helpful!  I can't wait to go back again!

 This is the outside of the barn....only a small part of it!

 This is what greets you as you walk in the door!

 My pile of treasures!  I have already painted some of them!

I can't pass up a neat old wooden box!  This one is for me!  I am going to use it for a centerpiece on my table for the holidays!  I can see it looking awesome in my mind!hee hee

Here we are all loaded up and tied down like a bunch of hillbillys!  It was well worth the trip for me!  Anytime I find lots of neat goodies it makes me want to paint paint paint!

Some new work!

Well like I said earlier, I am working hard to stock up for my next show!  Here is a sneak peak of some things that I will have there!  Also I made 6 of the little Christmas tree cups to sell on here if you are interested.  You can click on the picture to the left or just contact me!  They are available for $19.99 plus actual shipping and I will have no more once these are gone so get them while you can!

This is the little tree!  It is about 11" tall and oh so cute with german glass glitter to add some sparkle!

If you watch my work you know one of my favorite things to paint is old wood boxes....the other thing.....SNOWMEN!!!

Just a fun little pot to hang on a peg or on your tree!

I have even been doing some sewing!  These Prim Santa ornaments turned out so cute!

This scale is one of my favorite things!  I just love it and it is a shame my picture doesn't do it any justice!

Something fun and unique for those that have everything!hee hee

This prim tree in a bucket is perfect for any room!

I have to paint this design at least once every year!  I just love it and can't help going back to it!  This is an old shoe shine box.  I love how it is worn and used and so unique!

I have also been working on some more ornaments and of course I will have my room sprays and now I also have matching refresher oils and rosehips to go with them.  I even have gift sets all made up in a snowman hat for that hard to buy for person!

Thanks for checking out my work and as always contact me if you have any questions or are looking for something special!  I love to hear from you!!!

Craft show!

Well, at the beginning of September I did a craft show in Jefferson City at the fair grounds.  It was the first time for a really long time!  There were no inside spaces available so my sister and I braved an outside tent!  Although we got rained on a little we both were very happy with the show and even signed up to do it again next year!  Here are some pictures of my part of your booth!  You can check out my sisters cool jewelry at!/pages/JewelryJunki/253024611402736

I have been working like crazy now for the next show on November 12th!  Wish me luck!

Painting painting painting!

Well, I finally finished this project for a dear friend of took me way too long but I have been having painter's block!  It turned out really cute and she loved it and it got me back to my brushes!

This scale is the next thing that I am working on!  I did one some time ago with a fall design from Terrye French and it turned out so cute...I am doing it again!  I have another scale that I purchased on vacation and I am doing that one with a winter or Christmas scene!  I can't wait to start that but I want to do some fall things first.  I have some really awesome stuff so I better get to it!!!

Back to work!

Since I came back from vacation I decided to get into a booth again......I know, I've done that before, but I can't resist.  This booth I am sharing with my sister and it is in a really really awesome antique shop called Bear Ridge in Crocker.  There are always people there and I am hoping I will be very busy!

I also signed up for a craft show!  I did my first one last year at our school and it actually went really well.  Plus it was fun and I love talking to everyone who comes out!  I will be doing that show again this year on November 12th but I signed up to do one in Jefferson City at the fairgrounds on September 10th!  And wow that is coming really really fast!

I got out the sewing maching and got lots of goodies all sewn up so I can stuff and finish in my quiet times and I have been scrubbing up some of my treasures to get to painting!  I have lots to do!  I guess it is a good thing I work well under pressure!

I have a friend, Susie, of Yankee Lane Primitives, who I got these awesome halloween labels from.  I thought some creepy halloween bottles would be a great thing!  I also sewed up some primitive pumpkins that smell sooooo yummy, like pumpkin crunch cake!  I got more bottles to stock up on my room sprays again so if you are needing those just let me know.  I will also be adding the rosehips and refresher oils in the scents of room spray I make real soon.  My plan is to make up some really neat gift items for the holidays.  Be sure to stay tuned here for a sneak preview of what is to come!!!


I was lucky enough this summer to get to go on a vacation to Colorado!  My sister Angie went with me and we met up with two of my friends that I have known online for many years but we had never met in person.

We went up into the mountains....the view was absolutely beautiful!

Joleen, Angie, Me and Tanya!  Tanya's parents were nice enough to take us all around and give us the grand tour!
Tanya, Me and Joleen!

Everything there was just so beautiful.

 We even visited a haunted cemetery.....twice!  Once at midnight and once in the daylight to see where we were!

 It was a great trip and I was so glad to be able to meet up with my friends.  I am really hoping we can do it again soon and even add some more friends!

And of course Angie and I hit as many antique shops as we could from Missouri to Colorado!  We found some really great ones too like this one in Kansas.  I got some real bargains here!

We also came across some interesting things!  We had alot of fun with this toaster tree!hee hee  After we found this we couldn't help but notice every toaster we saw everywhere!  I will say there are alot more toasters for sale in Kansas than I have ever seen in Missouri!

 I found some great things to paint on!  It was awesome to search some new places for things.  So be watching for some of these things to end up on here for the holidays!

Here are some of the things I collect.

And my jewels!  I can't resist vintage just makes my imagination go wild.  I think of who wore it and where they wore it to and who gave it to them.  Then I wonder how I ended up with it....feeling lucky of course! 

Well, that is the end of I better get to work!!!
