i have been way too busy lately. i need a paper bag busy. life is overwhelming this time of the year for me. i am inspired by peace….not hustle and bustle and busy, busy, busy…but that is the way it seems to be this time of the year…eh???
busy as i may be, i found a day to go to MARTA’S for inspiration and some consultation and some…best of all…SHOPPING!!! marta has updated all her holiday displays and her store looks amazing!!! i took a million photos. i will just show you photos and not type. i’m busy…remember???? too busy to type. that’s sad. actually, i’m just lazy and photos in the case of marta…speak louder than me writing a bunch of blah, blah, blah. i will say that i’m doing this benefit with marta scheduled on DEC. 15th. and we had to consult about her BIG furniture (thank you Marta) and my little smalls i’m bringing. that is the main reason i stopped by her shop. but that isn’t the fun reason. THIS IS…….
please sit back…get a cup of tea and ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!!!
marta is the queen of vignettes. you can click marta’s shop photos in my category list to see old posts about her store. she is located on highway 190 close to belton, texas. if you have a chance to stop by and see her….you will be sooooo glad you did. she has charmed her store with shimmery holiday displays and soooo many cute treasures, there is eye candy, whimsy and elegance everywhere you look!! she has only original pieces and takes great care shopping and buying items for her store.
hope you enjoyed! i took a lot of obscure photos of her shop this time. i love her doll collections and i LOVE this birdcage upside down with brushes. just adore it. it is on display in one of her WCs. how cool.
i have been making pillows, necklaces, signs, whatever i can…for this upcoming show. here are a few things in progress. i also have a HUGE mess on my table when i’m finished. it is total FOOLISHNESS like on clean sweep. that house show….they would have fun in my house. what could they sell at a yard sale and make any money on here???? hot glue sticks? vintage oddities???? FOOLISHNESS……
i bought a bunch of oval disks from marta and tried my hand at collage necklaces. i made about 20. i will try to post photos of the other soon, but i can’t promise anything. between cubs, a birthday party, a derby car to make, pricing for the show, laundry, food shopping, cleaning and meals….i’m super worn out this weekend already. zoey is potty training too….yay. i like being home so she can get used to going potty at her leisure…which means peeing on the floor and then sitting on the potty afterwards. puddles of pee. what a life!!! i know…i’m on a tangent.

okay….too many cartoon noises in the background…better go turn something off. did you get that mom? yes…noise after 10pm is so distracting for me. my mom thinks i’m crazy because i hate loud noises after 10. i can’t help it. i hear loud noises all day long. i have to have the quiet for my sanity. am i alone on that one????
okay….tired, tired, tired. hope you were inspired.
you all have a great weekend.
