My Website...My Creative Soul

Before I ever had a blog...in fact before there ever was such a thing as blogging, I have been making things, gathering things and selling things. It's what I do....and needs to be my main focus in order to feed the creative soul. It's my lifestyle to be both an artisan and entrepreneur and it would be hard to think of doing anything else at this point.....

Just a quick post this evening of some new things (and old treasures) on the website. I hope that you'll take a few moments to come visit me over there....
You will also find me here:
Have a great week ahead....

Tole On Tuesday....And A Giveaway Coming Soon

Hello everyone! Are you trying to get back in the swing of things after the long holiday weekend like I am?
Somehow I was honestly thinking that it was Monday most of the day, but it's Tuesday....and I wanted to quickly share a collecting passion of mine with you this afternoon.

It's tole....not your normal tole trays (although I have several of those) but rather old crusty rusty Italian tole and the more old and worn the better. Truth be "tole~ed" (sorry, couldn't help myself:-)) even though I've been collecting for years these are some pieces that I've found in the last few months and all locally. Oh yeah...I do have more, but will share these with you today.....
This is a wall in our master bedroom with a fireplace mantel that I'm going to do up for Fall soon. For now I just tossed these latest weekend finds on to photograph....they are all candle holders and so yummy.

The mirror is another recent find and we did hang it over the mantel to add a pop of color in this mostly white room.

The old Italian tole shelf that sits next to the mantle is something that I've had from back in the day when I used to sell in a couple of different shops here in town. I love how the top forms a heart shape:-)

Also sharing a couple of petite Mason jar chandeliers that I have just finished up for a client's Studio and shipped out today. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with tole LOL, but anyway......
I'll be back soon with a nice giveaway that I've been asked to sponsor with a chic clothing company for you!
