These are just a few places in my very eclectic kitchen!  I have such a hard time deciding what to keep and what to change sometimes - particularly, of course, when I have found something lovely at a sale!!   Probably most of what you see in these pictures came from a sale at one time or another.

New Blog

My previous post was about my great garage sale finds! I decided to begin a new blog that will be all about my eclectic lifestyle which will include garage sales, antiques, vintage, cottage, country, Victorian, decorating, and more!

I always wanted to open a little shop somewhere - one that had all kinds of art, books, antiques, etc., as well as a coffee spot, a reading nook, a class space for arts and crafts - well, I guess it would have to be more than just a "little" shop for everything I wanted in it! It has never happened. I continue to teach art and work some on my own works but the shop is still just a dream.

SO - my new blog is my dream shop of sorts. Marberry Willower Brae. Come and visit sometime!

Garage Sales

I have to admit, I love garage sales, especially when I can find all kinds of fun things for decorating or doing crafts. I went with my daughter and two of my grandkids today and I found a lot of fun stuff!!

I love lace doilies.

The little glass bottles back behind are for a project I have in mind.

Graphic Design

Oh my gosh - I have not been on here for so long. I have been so busy with school so I haven't had much time to do any of my own art work but I decided to post an older Graphic painting from a previous year and the painting I finished with my class this year.
