A fun weekend!

OK still trying to figure out how to get those darned header etc lines out of my blog! But in the meantime here's my second post!

Did the fabulous Mermaid's Mercantile this weekend! (Was a little shocked to find out it was this weekend not next-my fault-but it all seemed to work out...somehow!) What a great bunch of creative, fun and really nice girls! Debi and Rachel put on such a nice show and they are SO easy to work with. Frauke (Madame Sauerkraut) and her 2 darling daughters brought us a huge salad with their homegrown tomatoes for lunch, it was yummy and greatly appreciated! Is there anything those girls can't do??? Too bad Nikki's margaritas were only make believe!

I am having SO much fun doing some altered couture, upcycled, repurposed clothing! Back to my roots so to speak. Kind of went crazy with an 'Oilily on Acid' skirt and a "Home" by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes inspired apron! (Once you hear that song you will never be the same! Or get it out of your head!) Didn't sell any of my clothing this weekend so look for them in my etsy shop this week! I'm also working on some punk and steampunk inspired clothing too!

That's it for now...

My first post...Yippeee!

Testing one, two, three! I'm not sure if this will work because I'm pretty clueless about these things but I figured if my friend Jennifer can do it I can too! (Sorry Jen!) My sweet hubby helped me get the blog designed and he was the one who sugested that I use my own artwork. Not sure it's really that great but it's mine! Thanks honey!

I'm pretty excited to be doing The Mermaid Mercantile sale this weekend! There are SO many creative people involved and I feel very fortunate to be included. Of course I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to get things done! But the good news is that I have been very lucky finding good stuff this past month! I'm also working on some upcycled clothing and the cutest little trinket boxes EVER! I'll post photos of the boxes soon!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit my etsy shop valentinasvintage!
