a potpourrie before I leave......

In honor of the Winter Olympics, I thought I'd show you an old (and I do mean old) photo of me. Just how old is this photo you ask? Check out my equipment:

Last week, as I was watching Lindsey Vonn being interviewed (after flying down the mountain to claim her gold!) I kept saying to myself, "who does she remind me of?".

Why does she look so familiar to me?

It was driving me crazy.

Then it hit me.

Lindsey Vonn

Pammy (1972)


Pammy (prom pic!)

Even my husband saw it.

But that was then and this is now.......

I have been crazy busy getting ready to leave the attic for a couple of months. We will be participating in the Remnants of the Past Show (April 24 - do NOT miss it!) while we are gone, so I pretty much have to have everything wrapped up before we depart. (though I am bringing all tools and supplies-including my printer just in case) I wanted to share a few more new ideas I've been working on too.....just to whet your appetite!
I've got bunches of these - lots of wonderful characters.

I really love ENDURE.

...and how about this combo????

New little tags too.
Love it.

Guess what this means.....
No peeking.....

Don't you love the symbolism of the three "beaks" above the rectangle?

That's all you get.

You have to come to the show in April to see the rest (I've got a dozen different characters!)
Stay tuned for updates as we travel in our little shop home away from home.....

See ya!

what's new in the attic you ask???

We are busy getting ready to leave on our 2+ month-long road trip.

 We will be down in California for the Remnants of the Past Antique Show and I thought you might like to see what I've been working on to bring down for that very special event.....

This rosary inspiered necklace is made from Robin's egg blue crystal pearls!
I hand "string" and "age" all of these necklaces.
Joie de vivre = Joy of living!

Of course you may remember these from the last Remnants of the past show where they were a hit!

...and I'll have plenty of these of course.

...and I already told you about these.

But I'm not the only one who has been busy......

Remember this?

Here is the bird feeder without the planter box and post it sits on....
If you're not into churches, how about this great barn feeder???!

....or this school house feeder???!

(it says "olde school" over the door)

I call this one The hangs from that eye screw on top.
I LOVE this stool - Dennis designed this years ago for his job - tools in the bottom *box* - handle on top for easy grabbing.

Some wonderful little cabinets....
This is one of my favorites.
Unfortunately Dennis's marvelous rustic wood creations will not be at Remnants of the Past - we don't have enough room to bring them down on this trip.


The Vintage Barn Show is right around the corner up here in Idaho! All of these lovelies will be there...

one more thing I will be bringing with me....

You will just have to come to the Barn April 24 to see what I end up doing with all of this....

See you there....!

dog tags - chapter II

Well, I promised I would let you know the pricing on the dog tags seen here - and how to go about ordering a set for that special grandma, sister, auntie or mommy in your life....

A set of one large (2" by ¾") and one small tag (1½" by ½") is $42 - any additional small tags are $12.

For *oma* set with three *grandkids* tags is priced like this:

  • oma/"the tie that binds the generations" (large tag) + corban (small tag) = $42

  •  karise (small tag) = $12

  • dresden (small tag) = $12
                             Total = $66 (does not include shipping)

Here's one for Nana.......

What do you call your Grandma????

The back of the *mommy* tag says...

 "I'll love you forever,
 I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be" .....

(.....remember that book that made us all bawl our eyes out????)

If you are interested in ordering, email me! (scroll waaaaaaay down to the bottom of this page.....)

You can pay for these through Paypal, or by check or money order. 

Wait! I almost forgot....I only charge $2.50 for shipping, regardless of how many wee tags you add....

As soon as I receive your payment I will get right to work creating a one-of-a-kind, very personal gift that will be cherished forever!
