Busy as a beaver and other tidbits

I am not be as regular with my blog postings as I had hoped to be. This last month's posts have been a little erratic. I have a ton of work to get ready for later on in the year. And as I mentioned before, that is all that I will say for now. On top of that we will be having company for about three weeks in July. I am looking forward to seeing our daughter as well as seeing our son Mike's girl friend. In the meantime the house has to be tidied, cleaned and a few areas painted.

Two weeks ago I sold some of my vintage items at a collectables and antiques show. I did well with my sales. I had my eyes on two pairs of Victorian walking boots and fortunately bought them at the end of the show. They are going to be used in two separate pieces.

This is the black pair. Resting on the boots are two spindles that I purchased from an antiques and collectables shop close by. I have plans for these beautiful spindles. I must be off. I will post when I can.

Very cool shoes! Can't wait to see how you transform them into art!

They are wonderful aren't they? I just couldn't resist them. These shoes are antique and I believe have the original shoe laces.

Len those shoes are fantastic! Can't wait to see what they become in your talented hands. I would work on them while listening to Bette Middler's "Int These Shoes" LOL.

I want to be very careful with the shoes and not damage them as it would lower their value, after all they are antique and in pretty good shape. That is one constraint I am placing on myself. I have some ideas...

I bet YOU sold some great stuff at that fair! - been looking back over your posts - the carnival/fair images are giving me great inspiration for my upcoming project (wink wink) - and HELLO!!! - that candy floss cart belongs at my house! -When I was growing up it was always candy floss - not cotton candy.

B have you been to the Carter's Steam Fair website? If you haven't go because there is a lot more there as well as a video that is really neat.
