Lace and Popcorn

Hello Ladies! Hope everyone is happy and healthy.....I have been busy with home lately, my husband hired a man to help him remove the popcorn cottage cheese ceilings this past weekend. Talk about a mess! We pulled up all our tile then he sanded the floors so that we could paint the concrete. It is so beautiful when it's finished, I love the look of showroom style floors with the gloss finish. Needless to say I've been trying to keep up with the dust! In the mean time here are a few new items for the shop. I will list the top tonight. I'm working on some beautiful things , can't wait to show you all! If you get a chance the new movie out Friday " NINE" with Daniel Day Lewis , Was Fantastico! I love musical type movies, theatrical. Loved the music too! Till next time , thanks as always for stopping by!! Love and hugs, Kimberly



Just a sweet pic of my pretty girl Micayla, she will be 12 in January! She is growing up so fast, I love her to pieces........

FLEA MARKET GOODS!

Hi Sweet friends.... I'm out of the sewing room for a little chat and to share some of my Goods with you all before I take them to show! Though I failed terribly with the making of the Gypsy flea market hipsters, I did make a few, they are a bit more time consuming than I predicted, So after the show I will work on them more. How do you like my old dress form, I wanted to do something unique and I think she is very Paris Rags! I have two more to finish before we leave Thursday whew! I made more jewelry pieces, more beautiful brooches with hand beading....I Love making them...so I will leave you for now. My next post will be great pics of our show and some clothing pieces I forgot to photograph before packing. I'm so exited , last night I found out I came in 4th Place in the Fifi Contest for my Table! That was fun :) Talk to you soon and thank you for your comments! Hugs, Kimberly!

Treasured Jewels & Keepsakes

I've ben wanting to use some of my little treasures brass findings to make some unusual jewelry for the show and Etsy. I loved how they turned out, I ran out of chains and supplies. The little vintage spools with egg were something I have been wanting to make , so I had to try them out. I know it's not spring yet but I'm always in love with blue eggs, nests and birdies. I think they are precious! All of these pretty treasures will be added to the Etsy shop tomorrow. Be sure to pop over to my other blog to see the table results! I'm so happy with it... I just found a gorgeous old antique round table to re-do and will post before and afters on my other blog , Kimberly Ryan art. I think it will turn out Fab! Back to work for now, hugs, Kimberly xoxo
