Signs of Spring

I have been enjoying the signs of Spring around my home.

It is so fun to watch the garden change after a dreary winter. 

Oh, the color!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

Congratulations William and Kate!

I am looking forward to the big Royal wedding.  I remember when Diane and Charles were married and it was such a fantastic event.  The jewels, excessive train, the royalty and all the Royal rituals was so exciting to see.  I cannot wait to see what happens in the morning!

What a cute couple! 

A few of my creations have a little Royal flair to them!

Thank goodness for TIVO and DVR because I am not getting up at 3am to see this historical event.  I look forward to watching it at my time!  Congratulations Prince William and Kate!

I am so excited!  Today, I dropped off a few creations at Kinder Touch Store in Des Moines.   Kinder Touch will also be featured on our local news tomorrow and the owner is hoping that there might be a shot of the necklaces.  Sorry, I get a little pumped up about the little things.

Check out Kinder Touch:

It is amazing how times fly by and then you realize that you have not posted recently.  I have been busy painting and organizing Vintage No. 35's office.  I look forward to showing you what I have been up to.

Junk Jubilee Update

What an exciting weekend it has been!  I just wrapped up a 3-day show at Junk Jubilee in Des Moines, IA and what fun it was.  This was my first major "junk" show to attend as a vendor and I was thrilled in how it turned it.  I enjoyed meeting other great vendors and also the people who came to the show because we all have one thing in common, "we enjoy junk".  I was also thrilled to meet so many of you who follow me on facebook and on my blog. 

I want to extend a big thank you to Jan and Miccia for putting on such a great event.  I did not meet one person who did not enjoy the event and they cannot wait for the next one.  It was a great event and looking forward to the 2nd Annual Junk Jubilee!
