Nothing Says Love Like Bugs

Seven years ago today, I married Jason Aaron. Does he know how to please a girl or what? Ahhhhhhh . . .

More Fun with Baby Heads

This somewhat twisted candle stick includes (of course), a vintage baby doll head, a pink melamine cup, figurine sans heads, and a plaster flower. I believe my next in the series will include some red and gray - so many possibilities!

Something Funky This Way Comes

I did some shopping last weekend and came upon some GREAT candlesticks done by Dee Dee Walters, a local KC artist who taught me how to do mosaics. These Trinkets and Treasures candlesticks by Anthropology have been a source of inspiration for many who want to put their own spin on the project.

I decided to give it my own go and here's the finished product, complete with baby head and baby leg.

Now, I want to see Sharon's take which will involve fake blood and a zombified baby doll to be certain!!

Kavi came across Thistle, a great vintage shop at 329 Southwest Boulevard, and just knew I'd love it - she was right!! What struck her - a shop owner who offered her a hot cider when she walked in the door, great styling by both color and theme, and fun merchandise.

This vanity was revived with fun, neutral-toned houndstooth paper.

I picked up some mosaic ingredients and will definitely be back soon! Find Thistle on FaceBook HERE.

Art Here

After exploring Thistle at 329 Southwest Boulevard, we hit a great spot across the street from Strasser Hardware. WOW.

So many fun things to see!!

And it was full of the owner's art. Barbara McCreery combines her sequin and pin creations with toys, dolls, animal skulls, chicken feet, dried bats, etc. to create one-of-a-kind art - amazing!

I picked up lots of fun mosaic ingredients and will definitely be back - maybe for some great garden statues next time.

New Stuff at Mission Road

I recently moved to a larger space at Mission Road and needed to beef up the inventory. I also needed some taller pieces to add height to the space. I lucked out with this tall shelf. It's made of doors and it's HEAVY!

The new jelly cabinet looks great beside the stencil.

I added lots of smalls . . .

And here are a few things I didn't take home with me.

Why didn't I buy this hat for Elle?!
