Well it is official, my sister Julie has left the full-time job of "gathering " to take a cushy position at a local insurance office. Yes, I miss her. But as they say, the show must go on. Julie will still be making her great , highly scented candles and her fabulous jewelry to send with us to the shows. When I say us , I'm referring to my side-kick and husband of 28 years, Tim. If you have ever been to any of our shows, you have probably seen him. He always helps with set-up and everything else we needed. Tim also does a lot of the repurposing, painting .etc. He has even started going to the auctions with me. Tim and I did our first "craft show" about 30 years ago, before we were married. We have been doing this on and off for a long time. It's how we funded our son's adoption 22 years ago. Yes, junk and repurposing can make a lot of wonderful things possible. Who knew!!
Well we have been working like crazy to get ready for the Country Living Fair in Austin ,Tx April 27, 28 and 29 . Then it's on to Springfield, Ohio for the Vintage Marketplace May 18, 19, and 20. I will leave you with a couple of pics of some of the things we have been working on.
Until next time,
