A Paris Street Market Rue De Noel

I have lots of pictures to share but I have not had time to download any of them.  They are still in the camera!  Today and tomorrow I will be at A Paris Street Christmas Market.  After this weekend I plan on taking better care of my blog.

I am really looking forward to this show.  The vendors setup yesterday and I can tell you there is lots of great booths with a wide variety of items, especially lots of gift items and vintage Christmas which I love.

Vintage Lace & Silver Garland Christmas Trees

I am pleasantly surprised at how my estate sale findings continue to inspire me to create new things.  This past year, I was lucky to find great estate sale finds.  Vintage lace and trimmings are among my favorite finds.  I previously created heart shaped lavender scented sachets using various vintage lace and trimmings.  Now that the holidays are upon us (how did that happen so fast?), I realized I could use the same vintage lace and trimmings to create Christmas Trees.

I found the Silver Garland at The Pink Attic Cat in downtown Littleton.  I love shopping at Amy's The Pink Attic Cat,  it's always full of vintage treasure.   I love how this tiny silver garland provides just the right amount of sparkle, it catches the light.

I covered the metal stars with Silver German glass that glitter!

Here are my Vintage Christmas Lace Trees:

Upcoming Markets

I am working hard on finishing some new seasonal items just in time for two shows.  They will actually overlap for one day.  Thankfully my family will be helping me with Grandmothers House Gift Market while I remain at Sugar Plum Bazaar on Saturday, November 17th. 

The first one will Grandmother's House Boutique in Parker, Colorado:

As you see, Saturday November 17th is when both shows overlap.  Thankfully, I have enough inventory to fill my booth at Grandmother's House Gift Market, Sugar Plum Bazaar and of course my booth at Alamo Antiques, Boutique & Art Gallery in historic downtown Littleton.  Yes, I have been very busy but I also love creating all these handmade items.

Here is the info on Sugar Plum Bazaar:

4th Annual Art By Craft Exhibit at RedLine

The Art by Craft Exhibit at the Redline opens this Friday with a reception.  Although I will not be able to attend the reception, I was at the Redline yesterday to help out with the installation of the exhibit.  It was nice to meet and spend time with members of the Denver Handmade Alliance.  I got a photo of my piece on exhibit, A Vintage Wedding Dress Hankie on a black canvas.

 Here is the Art by Craft poster with all the details:
