On A Bright, Sunny, Icy Day

...With nothing even I want to do outside, I decided to clean my paperweight collection, and after seeing them in the sunshine, had to create a little photo journal of my favorites! 
       ...Got a thing for butterflies, too...

A lot of them were acquired at garage sales, thrift shops, places like that, but a few were actually found at art shows. This is one of those...

                       And of course, anything with a nature theme is very appealing to me!
                                                       A millefiori type
               How about butterflies AND flowers?

                                            Another art show purchase
More flowers

                                                          One of my favorites

Even vases with paperweight type accents!
And my VERY favorite - one given to me by my husband ~ this is actually acrylic with a real seedhead inside! (Looks like dandelion, but much larger).


Revisiting The 2010 Art/Craft Show Season...(2)

Another installment in the saga of  my trials and successes in the Toledo art/craft show circuit...

"In Another Garden" Garden Tour
Perrysburg, Ohio
(My third year participating)

"Awakened to a thunderstorm @ 4:30 AM. Stopped before we left from home - was nice rest of day. Pretty warm, but we were in a nice spot in front of the homeowner's garage in the shade. I did visit 3 of the gardens that were on the same street - even found one of my pieces in the garden next door to the one we were set up in, and sold my first Faerie Door! Homeowners were great AND made a large purchase, too!"

notes: This tour is interesting because it is situated in a different part of town every year. I actually used to go on this tour as just another garden aficionado, and have many fond memories of all the gardens I was able to see. That is my only complaint about becoming a vendor - I can't participate in the tour itself! :-(
