I Officially Have A New Addiction.... I've been working on my "style" and trying to come up with new ideas and creations. Seems as though people are fascinated with vintage stuff & animals as of lately. So, this is a new necklace I made for the shop today:I named it "Come Sail Away With Me" ~ I am just in love with that little Swallowtail Sparrow. And the green fluorite is just gorgeous! You can see more pictures of it in the shop.

I've been missing making my little "collage art pendants", so I started looking around to see if I could get some new ideas and found this website ~ isn't it awesome!!! OMG ~ I have a new addiction! It combines my addiction to "digital scrapbooking" with my quirky addiction to old creepy pictures! I'll let you know when my purchases arrive and how much I love them {which I'm afraid will be quite a lot} ~ so between those and my "Websters Pictorial Dictionary"...
...that I just had to have and am totally smitten with ~ thanks to my dear little friend Emily Martin {of whom I'm also addicted and totally smitten with}. And I just love that it's called "A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities" I'll have lots of new, very charming indeed, little pendants rolling out here fairly soon ~ I'll post pictures when I start making them. I hope they receive a warm welcome!

Well, I'm trying to get back to my normal flow of business ~ posting to my blog regularly, making new things daily, updating the shop often, etc. Now that the "Mountain Song Festival" is over and I don't have any new house guests arriving until the first of November, these last weeks of September and the whole month of October should get me back on track. And speaking of the "Mountain Song Festival" ~ it was awesome!!! The music was amazing and the people were all so nice! I just about sold off all of my inventory ~ which was wonderful!! So if you missed it, here's a little video ~ enjoy:

Now ~ back to the business at hand ~ beginning today through Sunday, September 20th, I'm offering "free shipping" on everything. Shipping charges will be refunded through PayPal, after your purchase. Please let me know if you have any questions.
As a reward for reading this long-winded post, these awesome little earrings called "Will It Go Round In Circles" are the freebies for this week's give away! Ozzy will be drawing the lucky winner on Friday. All you have to do to win them is comment on this blog post. Good Luck!!!

Welp, I'm off to fix dinner and enjoy the rest of the evening! Hope you all had a great day!
Until we meet again ~ ♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. I love that sparrow necklace!

  2. I love the sparrow too. Do you surprise yourself sometimes with what you create? It is so cool to envision something then have it turn out better than you expected.
    Twas a great day here in AR and hope it was the same in NC.
    Have a great rest of the week and weekend; my parents are coming up for a visit, so we'll be busy and possibly floating the Buffalo National River, which if you've never seen,'s gorgeous.

  3. That artchix website is too cool!! Another one to add to the favorites :) I'm with you, it's so much fun to work with vintage components ~ they add alot of character! That's a lovely necklace you created. Love the earrings, too ;)


Thanks for your comments ~ ♥
