This is the amazing box that my secret Santa sent me filled with goodies! She knew me well and made it Steampunk! I didn't know if I would be able to figure out who my secret Santa was ...until I opened the box on Christmas! I took one look and KNEW it had to be from Wendy Aspinall ! Her style is unmistakable and I was thrilled with what she sent! Take a peek:
Thanks Wendy!!!!! I love it all!
I was not thinking and did not take any pics of the box I made for my secret Santa! I know! Where has my brain been? So as soon as I can "steal" some pics from my partner I will post them! :O)
Just a few pics of some of the jewelry I made this year... some of it is gone but I have quite a bit left for an art center fundraiser at the end of the month. My ETSY store is empty right now but when the smoke clears and I see what pieces I have left I will be adding them to my store!
I love a good junk jaunt and when we were visiting my brother-in-law and his family for Thanksgiving they took us to a great out of the way place called "Gatherings on the Blue"
It's a farm place that is consigned out to vendor's to sell all kinds of great old junk and some handmade crafts too. I loved this...whatever this is! I wanted to get it but no room in our car for it!
I could have spent all day rummaging through everything!
This is my brother-in-law Jim. He makes the coolest birdhouses , Nebraska Husker barn wood signs, and other barn wood pieces.
Even the house was filled with antiques and other goodies
Here are a couple of Husker signs Jim made
This is the view from the loft. Every square inch had something in it! I am definitely going back next year! I did not find a website for them but if you live in or near Nebraska they are located 8 miles south of the Seward exit and the owner is Judy Roth (402-560-5984)
