Collecting Pieces of the Past

My open house, on Sunday, was a big success!
 The sun shone, it was a gorgeous day, and so many fabulous ladies came out to shop. I raised a total of $227.50 for the Bragg Creek Flood Relief, and was extremely pleased. 





 I am now winding down for the summer, and will be travelling to the west coast for some much earned R and R!  Over the next few weeks, I will be searching out little treasures, visiting flea markets, yard sales and antique vendors, collecting pieces of the past to incorporate into my Fall designs. I love the thrill of the hunt, almost as much as I love designing!

I hope to post some of my fabulous finds, over the next few weeks, so keep checking back to see what I have discovered during my travels.

I wish you all a wonderful summer, full of family time, lazy days and plenty of time to soak up the sun!

Turning Lemons, into Lemonade

What a crazy part of the world we live in. You know our winters are long and cold. You probably heard or read about our June floods. Well, for the last several days, we have been in heatwave. Today it is currently 37C or 98 F!

So what do you do, when you have a load of jewellery that was initially made for a show that you were unable to attend, due to the massive southern Alberta flooding?
Well.....whats that saying about turning lemons into lemonade?
I decided to use my jewellery to raise money to put towards the flood relief fund for our town.

I am having an open house this Sunday, where 10% of my sales will be donated to the flood relief fund. I am also running a silent auction, where the winning bid will also go to the fund.

Here is the piece that I am auctioning off.



In the meantime, I am trying to stay cool! Pin It
