My booth partner and I brought in new stuff today.
We decided to do an industrial look. Lots of wire racks, metal boxes, a leather couch with a metal base, a really cool 3 tiered metal coffee table. Above the couch, is a Grand Marnier Liquer map of Paris with stars showing you where it is served. Great item for Francophiles and advertising lovers.
The bowl on the coffee table has in it, unused Blue Dot camera flashbulbs. People are using these bulbs for craft projects. I've been selling lots. They are 8 for $10. It took quite a while to get the booth together, but we are happy with the outcome. If you're in the neighborhood, (Agoura Hills, Ca.), stop in and ask to see Little Leslie's booth. I'm usually there Tuesdays and Thursdays. Any questions, just comment and I will reply. Thanks again for looking.
Well, the very next day, everything sold. I mean there are only 2 tables left in the booth. One person came in and bought all of it for his business. Industrial rocks!!!
Well, to update you on the bird nest. For some reason, there are only three eggs left in our nest in the Chinese Lantern under our eaves. No sign of the fourth egg, anywhere. The mom still flies away every time we open our front door. We've been sneaking out the back as much as we can. I'll keep you posted! Thanks for looking.
I took a class at Zinnia in So. Pasadena, from Joe, teacher extraordinaire. We used cigar boxes, and affixed or hung paper dolls inside, like on a stage. I decorated the inside walls with printed napkin paper, and torn text. I added a paper compass on a ribbon attached to Pierot's (Guy's), hand. Then I added the bird nest and affixed a copper lion medallion. Our kittiies' pictures are on both sides. Guy gave me real pearls for Christmas, so ,I had to add those too. This is his "3d" birthday card! Hope you like it. Have a creative day!
Lately, I've been finding chains everywhere.
I've been buying lengths of all kinds of links. Some so heavy, I can't lift them on my own. Some so delicate, I'm inclined to put them around my neck. I'm collecting enough to make a curtain to hang behind some yard art. I will take a picture when I finish.
I had a really cute lamp made from an old lantern. I wanted an equally cute shade, so I took some silk plant leaves and glue gunned them onto an old and dirty shade. I started at the bottom of the shade, so I could layer from bottom to top. I hope you like it and are inspired to do one.
My husband, as I've said before, has a green thumb. He grew all of these cacti from small pieces. He says, just pick or cut a piece of cactus, let the cut end scab over, takes about a week, then just plant and water.
