I just wanted to post a quick note to let you all that my jewelry is set up at St Bernadette Catholic Church in Fuquay-Varina, NC - The event hours are 10am - 4pm: (today) Friday & Saturday. Their address is 1005 Wilbon Road, Fuquay-Varina, NC.

This is a fundraiser for the church - 20% of all sales are donated. There are about 30 other artists & crafters there.  This event is quite different than anything I've ever done - I set it up yesterday & left it - therefore, if you go out there, I won't be there.  There's no room for vendors since it's just a table & quite tight fitting.

As I was posting this, I decided to at least upload a few of photos - below are ones of my studio when I first started reorganizing the area - plus a few other random pictures

The tall piece in the middle was originally a lamp - but I mixed pieces from different lamps to make this stand. I absolutely love these things - I've made about 8 so far & have them on my desk.  so while I'm creating, I can just look up & twirl my little (or big) lamp thingy around & search for the chain I need.  There is a smaller one below it which is made mostly of crystal lamp pieces. These have really helped me with getting stuff off my table - well - it DID help for about a week. Now my table(s) are all covered again - not with chains - but other goodies I'm playing with!

below is the back side of the same lamp above

a few pieces I bought on one of my last flea marketing trips
I kept wanting to make a rhinestone brooch wreath - and finally finished it - well, it's never finished - and they are not secure, but it is still amazing look at! It's just a wreath made from straw, then covered in vintage lace trim - then, I stuck the pin backs into the fabric - I'll post a better picture of it later (or I will never get this blog post uploaded)- don't you just LOVE crystals?!
This is a really unique dress form I saw - it has size circles from hangers glued all over - how  neat is that? It would be super easy to do - those circles are from retail fixture stores - it has a vintagey feel, but it's new!

Ok, that's all for today.  Just fyi - for those of you that even read my blog (LOL) - I started this blog post at 930 am EST - here it is 4:06 pm... that event I posted about in the very beginning - is OVER for today!  This is my life - everyday!  Thank goodness, the bazaar is going on tomorrow too if you want to go over there - have a great weekend y'all !
