winter projects......

we have used these cold snowy days to work up some new projects...like the little sign above..

there havent been lots of people thru, which is normal in january so we have been busy making stuff...my job is to figure out what to try and how i want it to look, and then turn it over to the right person...
.. lisa and the tin....this project uses our old ceiling tin.... and old fence parts....truly a trash to treasure thing....
wades bar signs and flowers...these are really perking up the key west room!!! wade is having fun doing them too


ruths words on windows...we have lots of ideas on this, but our windows are mostly out under the snow...


another big project is etsy...we are opening a store there ..under our new name gypsy market..most of the work is being done by terri and laura...with me gathering and describing....the plan is to put on lots of vintage piles of stuff for the altered art world.....which we have lots of....of course our store customers get to see lots more than we could ever put on etsy.http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6786005...this is just the start....lots more coming...especially for steampunk jewelers and builders....stuff like doll hands..
of course most of our things are big...so jon has been busy too....always buying but also

his part of january is working up as much out of the rough room as we can....hes rehabbing, repairing, digging into the deep corners and trying to make the best of the orphans out there....one customer does call it the orphan room..
picture above is what he brings home about every week.....

Hi, Ann! Have not had a chance to stop by in awhile...sure wish you were closer than a blog visit!

I so agree we need a dialogue these days about the realities of business! Love etsy site...but you need to put some variety packs together on those prints...we could use them on our projects!
Stay warm!
