Atlanta!

It’s almost time for AmericasMart Atlanta, and I can’t wait!!  So many treasures are waiting to be discovered, what will I come home with?  I am anxiously awaiting to see Art by Amy and John Wind, my two favorite jewelers….. just hope my wallet survives!  I have been drooling over the new John Wind Catalog and know that everything will look even prettier in person.  While I like their gold jewelry, I’ve always been more of a “silver” person, they have FABULOUS silver items now!!!  How will I choose?  Amy’s booth is always crowded with people discovering unique “design your own” items.  There are baskets and trunks of bobbles and framed art, along with a variety of necklaces and bracelets for them to be attached too.  The fun in when you bring all of these pieces to the counter and watch them transform in front of your eyes as Amy, or one of the other designers, assemble them for you!  I am always amazed at how they turn out.  If you have seen something online that you like, or have an idea of something, email me and I will be happy to get something made for you.  I would also like to know if there is a particular piece from the John Wind line that you would like me to order.  I’m pretty sure that I will be spending a lot of time in these two booths, but will have to pull myself away to check out some of the other vendors.

What about ornament?!  Who will have that ornament that I will just HAVE to have?  Christina’s World, JingleNog, Radko, Joy to the World, Thomas Glenn or one of the other great lines?  Who is YOUR favorite designer?  While I do not carry all of these lines, I love “helping” my sister, Connie Porcher, of Celebrate 365 select her ornaments!  I know I had fun last year.

If there is anything, or anyone, that you think I should do or see there, drop me a line.  If you will be there, stop by the Snow Children booth as Elaine Roesel lets us use that as our “home base”.

Wow, I can’t believe we’re almost half way through September already! Ghoultide Gathering is just around the corner, will you be there? Connie and I will be.  I can’t wait to see all of the wonderful Folk Art and Artists!

Autumn Feather Tree

Speaking of Halloween, guess who is this month’s  “Surprise Guest Artist” for Spookytime Jingles!  I am so honored to be featured along side of so many talented artists.  If you have never seen their work, please check it out, you will truly be amazed.  Of course, I want you to check out my items too!  There are several Halloween themed trees listed, along with the Autumn colored tree pictured.  Because there is no way to anticipate what size and color combination that everyone will want, I only have a “sampling” of combinations listed.  I can custome make a tree specificly for you, just let me know what you need!  Don’t forget about Christmas Trees!  And yes, you can find decorations for Halloween and Christmas on my website

Where has the summer gone?  Actually, the temperatures here are VERY summer like, but the time is flying by!  It’s hard to sit outside and enjoy nature when the heat and humidity so high, even in the evening.  How is your summer going?

Halloween is just around the corner and then Christmas…… I have SOOOOO much to do!  For those of you who are really in to Halloween, make sure you check out the 4th annual Ghoultide Gathering October 2nd in Michigan.  It features a lot of great folk artists of all styles, from traditional, to “way out there” and everything in between!  I was so amazed by the imagination to everyone when I went to my first one last year.  My sister, Connie Porcher, has featured many of these talented artists in Celebrate 365Hope to see you there!!
