Country Living Fair, Columbus Ohio 2011

OK so many of you know that we are so excited to be doing the Country Living Fair in Columbus Ohio, Sept 16-18. And many of you know that we specialise in up cycled, handmades from vintage pieces and parts. Dan has shown you what he is up to, so I thought that I would show you what I have been up to ( and a little more from Dan :-)   )
Some of you might remember "the bag" as it has become know as, that I made earlier this summer, using a piece of rug hooking that I had done as well as vintage ticking & upholstery webbing. Well is seems most everywhere that I go people comment on my bag and at the last Petoskey show many people spotted it hidden behind the table and wanted to buy it. So OK I got the hint and I am making LOTS of them to bring with us.

I am using wonderful vintage needlepoint, crewel embroidery, cross stitch and linen children's books for the front centers. Her is a sneak peak and some of them in progress.
I am also working on jewelry!
Spooky and some not so spooky vintage post card garlands.
Dan has also been making these must have photo holders using old door knobs, vintage shoe forms and.....................
 the rest is a secret!
Can't wait to see you all there!!!
Until then
(sleepless in GR)
