I have been very busy the last several weeks getting ready for the Homestead Antique Show    (www.homesteadhico.com) October 28 and 29th.  I will post more about it next week..

I am getting a few things crossed off my list.  My biggest project was the stained glass that my dad helped me complete.  I can concentrate on making jewelry and art for the show..

Here is a look around my studio…it is pretty crammed packed….
One of my favorite things is this old dove cut out.  It was used for dove hunting.   It has DUV COY written on it.  I love the clothes pin to clip onto a fence or tree!

I am a messy creator.  I have all my things strung out all over the place
A few hammered silver spoons ready to be made into necklaces..
I love to keep all my things in old boxes, jars and cans..
Some of my necklaces..

The spoons and keys that I have messed up, I used to make a lamp

The “living room” part of my studio..
I am lucky to have a kitchen, bath and sleeping loft too!

Old spring and nest.   My sister and I made many of these for her vintage wedding last year.  They looked so sweet on the guest tables.

My work area in the corner

My box of lace and old dentist drawers full of pencils, markers and drafting supplies

I can never have enough drawers!
I’ve had this Steiff mouse for a long time.

A collection of nautilus fossils that were found in the 
Paluxy River on our property

 This is my favorite thing in my studio..  My mom made this doll for me for my birthday 13 years ago. She signed the bottom of the watering can..

And this is the shopkeeper, boss and night watchman…
