Well, we are finally settling in from our big move. We have been tucked away in a cozy cabin in the trees of Flat Rock, NC eagerly awaiting the move into our new home on the 20th of November. I am so excited and can't wait to get my studio up and running again. It is going to take time and patience I know. Lordy did I have a lot to pack up. I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner. I have so much to be thankful for this season. Thanksgiving Blessings to All.

A big move is under way. It is time to say goodbye to the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and sweet town of Woodstock and hello to Hendersonville, NC. We have sold our dear-ole farmhouse and are moving on. It is a great time to buy - crazy low mortage rates and house prices are still low. I am up to my eyeballs in boxes and swimming in a sea of paper and bubble wrap. So much work but wonderful rewards ahead! Hendersonville, NC is just outside of Asheville - gorgeous mountains and a thriving Arts community. The kids are excited about the change and hubby and I are too. I will be taking a break until we get settled in our new home mid-November. What a magical time to move - golden trees, crisp Fall air and Winter's chill just around the corner. Fall blessings to all.

A BIG thank you to all for making this a fabulous show! I met so many wonderful people. Got to see some old friends and make some new friends. It was great to visit with return customers and enjoy making new customers too. It was a fantastic show and I am looking forward to next year!
Here is a shot of some of the mixed media pieces and some of my assemblage doll ornies!
My sister-in-law is the best!!!! I couldn't do it without her. Hubby was home with the kiddos so it was just us two tackling it all!
These gals got lots of laughs with those Ta-Tas
Dear friends - yes I agree an odd duo but they enjoyed the antique buggy
I think all of my Halloween items scattered about the booth were gone by 11am on Friday morning! It was a crazy busy early bird opening!
So again, a great big THANK YOU to all my customers, friends, and family for making this an awesome show!

Sir Bennett and his ladies eagerly await the show in all their finery.
Here is a quick peek at some things I haven't boxed up yet. I have gotten back into collage and mixed media works. This was a focus and major passion of mine many moons ago when I was in college. It felt so good to branch out a bit and explore textures in a new way again. Texture and textiles are my love - whimsy is a must!
I hope to see you at the fair when the "the pages of Country Living Magazine come to life"
Fall Blessings to all

A few posts ago I introduced the start of "Willie the Weirdo"
Well, Willie became "Willamina"!
What can I say, you just never know what will manifest!
I just adore her. I am beginning to hold on to my creations for the Country Living Show in September. If you are interested in Willamina, just email me. She won't be listed on Etsy.

And you thought it was food!!! Ha
I have been so eager to make something with this new fabric I picked up on my last trip to North Carolina. It is gorgeous and luxurious in it's feel and color palette. So a jacket it is for this chap!
Ta Da! Now for the fitting. I can't wait to get to the hat!!!! Oh, you know that is my favorite part! I am all about coats, jackets and hats!
The antique button on the top of his vest has the initials G.B. - I will need to think on this ole chaps name. Maybe Sir Gerald Barnabis ?? or Geoffery Buckhorn. So silly - stay tuned...............

This is one of many favorite buttons I have in my special collection. The details of the silver inlay bird are amazing. I wanted to be able to enjoy it and not have it stashed away out of site. This is my solution! I can
celebrate it by wearing it and also share my passion for old barrel keys. Rustic Romance!

Miss Raven Wildwood
I loved all the names that people came up with both here in blog world and in Facebook. Some I loved so much, they will pop up in future creations. This name is a combination of two different name ideas.
I think it suits her perfectly.
Thanks so much for playing!

Drum roll please............................
All the girls know that Miss Mighty B would be the best momma. They all seem to lay in the same box so she can sit on them. She is sooooo sweet.
Ok, so beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just think she is adorable!

Lady Rose Duport
Adorned in her best frock eagerly anticipating Spring.
I should have taken a photo of just the rose tapestry fabric I used in the hat and upper coat sleeves. It is a gorgeous material!!!
The Crocus flowers have emerged from the ground here in Woodstock Virginia. A little tease that Spring is around the corner.
