Halloween 2015

This year I am using Iris Apfel as my Costume Muse.  She's a style icon and I love her creativity.
"Because that’s what style is: attitude, attitude, attitude." - Iris Apfel
It remains to be seen if I can do the "geriatric starlet" (her words, not mine) justice, but these are a few of my favorite pictures of her:

There is a documentary by Albert Maysles about her called "IRIS".  You should probably watch it THIS INSTANT.

Aspasians 2015

Saturday was the Aspasians Marketplace in Rockwall and I had my very first booth.  I learned a lot and had a lot of fun!  I did quite well which surprised me.  I had very little confidence going into it, but everyone was so complimentary of my pieces that I may feel like I don't suck at this after all. :-)

I sold everything but these 3 pieces


8' long schoolhouse bench - $250.00

6 drawer black dresser - $225.00

Vintage Vanity - $175.00

And here is my booth from the Fair...

I'm really happy with the outcome and need to get my inventory back up for the Spring!
