I made a few necklaces last night that I am listing on Etsy today. They are vintage crystal chandelier necklaces made with vintage chains from various other mixed metal necklaces. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. Visit my Etsy store for more pictures and information.

Well, of course I can't just be happy with the way things are...so I moved stuff around again. I didn't go crazy and I left the big hutch where it was originally so I guess I didn't go that crazy.
I like this way a lot better...and the mannequin is where you can actually see it now. The only thing missing in the picture is the necklaces that I made to put on the mannequin. Sorry about the blurry picture but you get the idea!
The other thing I added to the shop is this cool victorian cast iron mailbox. You can't really see a great picture of it above, but it's on the green table in the corner.

Okay, I did some revamping of my little shop, moving things around, moving more things in, hanging things on the walls. I hope you enjoy it and it makes you want to come look at it in person. Don't forget first friday....which is happening March 5th...check out www.notjustantiquesmart.com for more information about that whole event. Hope to see you there!

I really need to stop taking pictures with my cell phone camera. I know my husband would appreciate it if I actually used one of the two cameras he has purchased for me. So forgive me for the terrible quality of these pictures but you get the idea. Hopefully, you want to see more and just bring yourself into the shop to see in person. Enjoy!

I know I have not posted in a while but, I wanted to share my house with you for Christmas. So, I will start with the most important thing, the Christmas tree. I just love the gold and rust colors, and if you know me at all you know that I love everything in my house to match. So, you will be seeing lots of golds, rusts and sparkle ! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The wreath in front of the family room fireplace, kind of simple but I still like it. And, on the kitchen table just a simple arrangement that my daughter put together with pine cones, candle and ornaments in a big gold bowl.
On to the dining room. I tied bows around all the chairs, Angels on the table and some beautiful globes I picked up last year. I almost forgot I had them...Okay, I did forget I had them and was pleasantly surprised when I found them in a cabinet...
Here is a closer picture of the globes. Of course I am partial to Angels. There is an Angel in one globe, and a small Nativity scene in the other. I have a ton of them on the tree and everywhere else in my house. I happen to leave a lot of the Angels out all year long.
At my entry way, I have an old fashioned Santa, some beautiful glitter candles and a beautiful floral arrangement.
Here is a closer picture of the floral arrangment with gold sparkle Poinsettia's and if you look close you can see the glitter candle in the background. Oh and of course an Angel.
Another close up of my floral arrangement. I just love the Gold Pointsettia's....
On the formal living room coffee table I have a bowl of ornaments, and a larger Santa and hmmm, do I see more gold sparkle candles? Of course I do. In the background you can see my wonderful stockings.
A little closer view of my stockings...gold beading and white velvet. I love them! Don't you love how the ends curl like they belong on a little elf !
Another tree, in the formal living room. It's not a big tree but it's packed full of goodness! Lots of gold, rust and a beautiful ribbon on top.
