Overflowing with treasures!

I'm having fun making crowns ~ all sizes and shapes

I love pincushions, these are inspired by a really old one I found

We had a really productive weekend as far as sales were concerned. We gathered some great cupboards and industrial type vintage furnishings that came out of an old school. I haven't got pictures yet as we are seriously in a running out of space situation. We have things stacked up and under and still have a truck full to deal with. I took a few pictures of some of the smalls I found and some of the things I have been working on in my studio today.

A proud Mom Moment

I should be posting about great finds and what I'm creating out in my studio but I just have to say how incredibly proud I am of my kids. Three of them have taken band classes this year at a private Christian academy.They all had concerts this last week which were absolutely awesome. Aaron my 17 yearold, got talked into playing the tuba as it was desperately needed for the band. He couldn't read a note of music at the beginning of the year but somehow climbed to the highest band and played in the symphonic band most of the year. This band has taken state so many times they aren't allowed to compete any more. The concert was wonderful and at the end he was presented player of the year award. Quite an honor as only one kid gets picked each year. Yeah Aaron!!
