I just hope this one sells as well as the old one did. Thanks for coming along.

Of course we all wanted to see it, as Kim is celebre, when it comes to her holiday decor.
After all the wonderful red, white and blue eye candy, it was it was time for ...
Thanks to all these lovely ladies who made it possible!!
And oops, I didn't get a picture of Margo's cookie tarts .... But she promised to send a recipe, so .... I may end up doing one of my rare food blogs. If you make them and eat one, you'll understand!!

Yep! It was time for my art group meeting again!! Can you tell what our theme was.
There were 6 of us this time.
Shirley brought this cute arrangement to show us how to use our tart tin mushrooms.
These are the mushrooms we assembled under her watchful eye.
Trina brought these sweet tiny jars that we filled with moss and mushrooms we made with sculpy. What a fun necklace.
Margo brought items to make this cute 'shroom shadow box.
In the back ground of this photo is my sweet mushroom pillow we each made, Jann did all the machine stitching while we beaded the design, and stuffed the pillow forms.
Kimmy designed these mini terrariums.
I taught wool felting with these fun felted mushrooms.
We even ate mushrooms. These sausage stuffed mushroom were made by Jann and I added mushrooms with olives to the caprese kabobs I brought for lunch.
All in all it was a lovely day spent chatting with talented friends!

My friend and fellow treasure's antiques dealer, Keith has been busy this week ...
I love his style ... And his taste in product, these old cash register flags are so charming .
He's come to specialize in smalls, like those in this display of bone dominoes, pottery ink wells, watch faces and any number of tiny novelty items .....
Like antique wire frame glasses frames.
Or colorful metal children's garden items.
Here we step back to view a larger area!!
His sense of proportion sometimes allows for odd bed fellows like tea cups and flower frogs.
Post cards are always a staple...
As are old photos ...
He also has lots of stereo view cards.
Seasonal goodies are available all year here!!
As you see...
A tiny vintage Christmas tree can show up anywhere.
His vignettes are always charming.
And his collections can be fun, like these old beakers, ready for your mad scientist display for Halloween.
He's come to specialize in rusty cut out metal letters! A real favorite with our customers.
Seeing his spaces at Treadures Antiques is always a treat for me! These booths are in our south mall, but he has more notable displays in his booths at the north mall as well. If you want to see his merchandising artistry just ask to see number 17s booths in either store!!
