I’ve acquired some new must haves. This weekend my mom and I went to the first annual “Junk Fest at the Nest” – which was so fun. We met an artist who recently moved from North Dakota and I fell in love with her work. A lot of it has costume jewelry or other found objects placed in and around the painting. I purchased the cake painting below. I’m not sure you can really see it – but the cherry on top is dusted with red glitter. I’m.in.love.
And today I scored at Recycled Elements. A store that is relatively new to the area and I just love it. I saw this pie safe right when I walked in. It’s really in good shape and can hold Barbies, dolls, jewelry and books perfectly – which is what I look for these days :). I cruised the store and found some other things I kind of liked, but kept going back to the pie safe. It states on the front that the patent is from 1904 – too fun! So when I needed to take some pictures of it for the blog I had some models that just some how couldn’t stay away. Seriously – the forced modeling we make them doing for the clothing patterns is starting to bite us in the butt. Notice the bottom picture where I tried to ask them nicely to step away – but their “Vanna” hands just couldn’t fully make it out of the picture. Too funny.
