New Vintage Goodies

Can't believe August is almost over.  Had a big custom order of 27 hammered pennies with initials on them and a couple with LOVE and a flamework flower on them.  That was a lot of work...especially when I had to clean the pennies when done to get a lovely shine.  Yesterday I went out and bought some Tarn X..just pop the pennies in the solution and presto...nice & clean...easy ..  peasy ..would have saved me an hour at least if I had known about it before..not to mention my dirty fingers....thank goodness for Google !!!

 I did have time last week  to head on down to the Women's Shelter & drop off some stuff and then buy some more vintage jewellery.  I am trying to really stream line my house... We have lived here 16 years now and things do have a way of pilling up !!
These will be taken apart and cleaned shortly... I already have a few ideas in mind.  
I have a date with the Kelowna Farmers & Crafters Market this coming Wednesday from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm...LOL  I am not usually an early riser so it will be a new 'thing' for me... If you are in town drop around to see me !!

New Blog Post

I simply must say that it has been a very long time since I last posted:
Have had our 2 teen grandkids here for the last 5 weeks..  Managed to squeeze in  'Arts on the Avenue' ..a fabulous art venue which I took part in.. lucky for me that my fabulous daughter Stacy was here to help me.. It was super hot.. at least 95 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celcius..  it was crazy busy.. my best street venue yet..... I will definitely take part again next year.
I have been busy making some new items... It seems all my extra long necklaces sold very well... so I am busy redoing all the shorter ones with extention chains so they are all adjustable.  I think that is the way to go.
The copper chains sold very well along with the silver ones.
I have a date  for our 'Kelowna Farmers Market'  to sell there as well.
I have revamped most of my display props to burlap  and I left some of them in black velvet for contrast.  I even covered 'Zelda'  ( my busty girl) with burlap for a cohesive look..
The grandkids go home to Montreal on Wednesday so I will have more time to upload some more of my jewelry to Etsy.  I am either buying food, cooking food, or cleaning the kitchen... teenagers are a bottomless pit it seems..  Our granddaughter Sydney grew one whole inch while she was here !!!
 We all went horseback riding last week... 2 hours on a horse...very hot but the scenery was worth it....Think I will give that a pass next time...unless I wear a cushion on my bottom...
