Another Time

Don’t you just love looking at the inside of a watch or clock?The gears and intricacy of it are fascinating. One of my sweet customers, Lora saw my post aboutthis necklace I made for myself out of a watch movement and asked if I’d create one for her. I added a little organza ribbon to her chain togive it a more feminine look.  I’ve got a whole jar fullof various watch faces and parts, and I love them somuch that it {Read More}

Giving Them a Home – Adopted Ancestors

I’ve added some new “ancestors” in the shop this week. I love decorating with antique photographs.   They add a lot of charm to a vintage vignette. Each is unique and it’s fun to image who the people are in the photos and envision the lives they led. This photo is of Phillip Fengel & “wife”. I envision them as hard-working German immigrants, getting a photograph taken that they could display in their home place. There was a large German {Read More}

Good Pickin’s

I would loved to have filled my van on our trip to Springfield, MO, but 4 people & their luggage meant I had to somewhat limit myself. I tried to mainly purchase for my shop, but I did pick up a few things for myself. This old tape measure is my favorite find of the week.   I don’t know what I’ll do with it yet, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.  I also got this old barn pulley that we’ll {Read More}

Sonday – The Trip to Bountiful

On my top 10 list of favorite films is,“The Trip to Bountiful”.It’s a heartwarming film made in 1985, starring Geraldine Page, John Heard, Carlin Glynn and Rebecca De Mornay.  Geraldine Page won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Carrie Watts in this film. Set in the 40’s, it’s the story of an old woman in her twilight years, whose dream before she dies is to visit her old home place in Bountiful, Texas (a fictional place). I {Read More}

No trip to Springfield, MO would be complete without visiting Bass Pro Shops. They have all my favorite things there, but they wouldn’t let me buy a single thing I wanted… old bottles old suitcases old jars old chippy corbels old cobblers tools old clocks old doors and old windows Oh  yeah….they carry fishing stuff too. :0) {source} I just wish they’d be less stingy about selling their displays.
