Together with my neighbor and business partner, Wendy, I am in full-steam-ahead-mode getting ready for the Alameda Point Antiques Faire -- the largest antiques flea market in Northern California -- this Sunday!
Currently, we have to drag our latest projects out into the yard or into one of our apartments for a photo shoot. It's not much fun and because of it, we have missed taking a lot of photos of things which have since sold. We have iphone pics, like the one above, but no quality photos. Sad :(
Still, here are some photos of things that sold before we were able to take pictures with the good camera:
|Clockwise from left: suitcase table created from vintage suitcase and vintage furniture legs, linen pillow cover and squirrel pillows made of vintage fabric, vintage oil painting on canvas that we cleaned and re-stretched, striped whale pillow.|
|Clockwise from top left: screen display for our vintage flash cards which sold before we sold a single flashcard!, napkins made from vintage tablecloth, bushel basket on stand, animal silhouettes in thrifted frames.|
We also just finished a custom job for one our clients:
Now for the better photos. Here's a sneak peek of our latest projects which we plan to take to the antiques faire this weekend:
|HUGE painted mirror|
|More animal silhouette art -- this one made from an reclaimed cabinet door.|
|vintage faux bamboo brass serving tray|
|We also have a huge selection of succulent gardens in these sculptural white bowls|
To add to the work, there was the Halloween costume to make.
Twin B's dragon costume came ready made, but when my twin A spied this devil costume at the store and INSISTED on having it, I told her we'd get it, but change it into a butterfly costume. She was ok with the idea, so off came the devil horns on the headband and on went antennae. I had the make the wings from scratch. Thank goodness for cardboard, construction paper, pom-poms and hot glue!
Whew! I'll be back tomorrow with a gratuitously cute post of the past four Halloweens with my young uns.
Are you all prepared for the big day? Ready to get your sugar-high on?
