the weather outside is frightful

I had intended on simply posting a nice Happy Halloween message with my friend Jack


we awoke this Halloween to a beautiful, yet frightful sight

our first snowfall

despite the white flurries - it does have an eery kind of look outside in keeping with Halloween
the gloomy grey-blue sky reminds me of the
Christopher Lee Dracula movies

after a big delay due to being sick, I am happy to share some fun pics from ART IS YOU Art Retreat

First and Foremost - thank you to Sal & Ellen for putting on another fabulous event
Thank you to my students for some amazing classes
Thank you to our friends new and old that make this such a special time for us


my friends Dorothy and Glinda
(better known as JANE and KECIA)

 I taught a mini-workshop called Cubic Collage

We all had fun playing with paper

absolute sweetheart Lesley Venable

one student's collage cubes

there were many fun mini-workshops to choose from
folks walked from table to table
my friend Di taught an adorable flower workshop
my hubby even sat down & made one for me :)

 don't you just love playing dress-up?

the fabulous BZ

LOVE this girl!  had such a great time with my friend Di
She was a huge help when I was setting up our displays

Mr Lesley hard at work :)

One of the workshops I taught was called "Almost Home"
I was so tickled to team-teach it with my mom and sister
It was wonderful to share this experience with them

students work in progress

we had a blast and the artwork created was really superb

last but not least
we must acknowledge the now INFAMOUS and BELOVED FLAMINGOS
we were lucky to be given one as we were getting ready to head home

preparing for a long drive

pit-stop for lunch
hubby had to stretch his legs w/ a quick race

getting closer

almost there

welcome home

I Wanna Play!

I am excited to participate in Flea Market Friday
hosted by Kecia Deveney of Lemoncholy's

Some of our finds go into our antiques shoppe
Some are added to our website and
Some are just mine o' mine :)

here are some of our recent treasures...
awesome old typewriter

adorable mother goose book - the illustrations are amazing

I just love this jug - especially the aqua paint!

vintage metal childs kitchen

old adding machine

I LOVE old luggage and picnic baskets

a cutie little shoe

chippy watering can and a tiny broken doll foot

I collect chalkware - this little lass was a recent gift

I also collect little dogs - look at that face

another new dog and a cool old Coffee container

I know, I many dogs does one girl need?
I couldn't resist - this guy is chalkware

gorgeous antique song book

now this little one isn't very new but I had to share her new attire
This is my fave find of the year - read the original post here
I was lucky enough to get a beautiful rosette gift from my friend Kecia when she taught at Art in the Rough in August.  I adore it.  When I wasn't looking she added it to my dollie - I LOVED IT!
then a few days ago I was sorting through some new junk we hauled in and I found this shabby wire lampshade.  It was tattered, faded and perfect for her little head

baubles, broken jewelry, buttons - lots of sorting to do!
