Behind the Scenes...

My "studio" may be in my basement
and not the kind you would see in one of those great books
about where women work,
but a lot of beautiful finds are stored there,
waiting for that project that will highlight their beauty.

Buttons, game pieces, beads and trinkets of all kinds
are treasures to be played with.

I've been having a lot of fun making these button bracelets.
They have just the right amount of dangles and make a fun sound
as they dance around on the wrist.
I just can't have enough buttons.

It's music to my ears.
better get back to "work"

Sealed with a kiss

We will stop at nothing to make the ordinary special.
These sweet little cactuses needed a little something to make them shine.

They are complete with a little sleeve and a touch of something special.
How much more interesting to have a little
treasure wrapped with something sweet.
It celebrates the beauty of our everyday!

Lemonade for Sale!

Sam and his friends from the "hood", Nolan and Max had
quite an afternoon selling lemonade at the shop.
Their stand was adorable....I suggested the linens and the platter, but they took care of all the supplies and the sign....(i loved the sign!)
They sold through all their cookies....which were completely yummy and only 25 cents.
(Eric, from the Music Cafe would be in big trouble if this went on much longer.)

When foot traffic slowed,they started walking back and forth in front of the store waving their sign and yelling out to passing traffic...
"lemonade for sale.. stop and get your lemonade here."
And I'm not sure how much they drank themselves, but they had use the bathroom quite a bit.

Of course they had to pack things up after about an hour and have lunch.
But they got right back into it.
They were on kool-aid mission.
What a nice afternoon!

We have been sooo busy, I love it!

New look for our porch! Beth is a genius it looks great, my camera does not pay justice to all the hard work. Then Natalia and her friend Megan painting something fun in the two mid century tables, they are looking great. And lastly fun finds from our friend's sale, we really love everything we found. Now a few days of messy rearranging disruption, and
everything will be alright again.I love this two chairs, this is where vintage meets modern!

I'll have one of each

Summer is just the best with all the yummy food at fairs and festivals.
We just can't get enough of it.
These vintage signs would be great for a backyard cookout...
Burger anyone?

Teresa Bosko is here!

We are so excited and flattered to have the work of artist, Teresa Bosko available at Bloomsbury Loft. You have to see these for yourself to believe it. These oversize wood sculptures, that she so cleverly named "Hot and House Flowers", are so beautiful and the best part is that they are indoor and outdoor, I l-o-v-e them. She is an amazing artist who lives in Hudson, Ohio and in the coming weeks, you'll see more and more of her blooming collection exclusively featured at Bloomsbury Loft.
Also keep your eyes open and checking our blog, we have new classes that are for sure crowd pleasers. A little teaser... We will be working with jewelry, resin, paper, cloth and as always.....serving cookies and milk. This one is just for your palate's delight only, and much more...
