Summer Fades and Turns to...FALL!

We've had a great summer!   Hope you all did too.  Fall is my favorite season, a time for change and to get back in to the 'ol swing of things.  School. Routine. And my favorite - fall/holiday Craft and Vintage Show season! Though I'm in Room With a Past year round, I enjoy doing local craft fairs, boutiques and other events....and a big one is around the corner.  The  Danville Heartland Antique and Art Faire is on Labor Day, I can't wait to see old friends and  meet new ones.  It's always a fun day, and a great kick-off to the fall and holiday season!

A quick catch-up of the past few months I've been an absent blogger (ok, it's been a year lol)...then we are moving on!   If you know me, you know I create.  A lot.  Small stuff, big stuff, I paint, sew, re-package, LOVE vintage anything, and keep my hands in it all by selling my goods here and there. 

Spring '13 had me busy at my 2nd fav place to be, Paris Flea Market in Livermore, where I was a guest vendor for a couple of months in their FABULOUS outdoor market that kept me busy for a couple of months, then a space inside.  And in between I was at Room With a Past, where I spent the summer enjoying a nautical theme!  Fun. Here is a bit of what the year looked like, in random order, of various photo is what it is!

See those lamps?  GLASS!  Painted with CeCeCaldwells Paint!

Summer at it's finest, by Mementos.
So in a nutshell...that's it so far for 2013!  Well actually there was a lot more fun in between all of the creating and shows, but more another time!!  Thanks to Karen of Redoux Interiors for the 'nudge' I needed to get the blog back on track...

Until next time!
