This morning, we tucked her in for the winter... well, at least until February... then, we will finish her up. 
B got the Christmas lights up on the house and, now, White Christmas on the boob tube, a glass of wine and the most delicious, @yonderwayfarmer bone-in, ribeye steak. .

Look at these lovely, repurposed, vintage sugar and salt shakers 😍 Topped with vintage and antique crystal/glass stoppers. I solder them together with vintage rhinestones. They are all filled with vintage, faux pearls from broken jewelry. The 3 large ones can be used as a shelf adornment and the 2 smaller ones can be hung on your Christmas tree.πŸŽ„ Message me if you would like to add one to your Christmas, or anytime, decor πŸ’—

Hello! Sorry for my absence... I've been trying to get my house back in some semblance of order... HA! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜–πŸ€ͺ
.
Anyhooo... I made this glitered bulb garland several years ago. It has been carted around to many shows to decorate for the holidays, as well as decorating my house. I am considering making them to sell... but, I would like to know if anyone would be interested before I invest the money and time into making them. They would be $5 a foot (that's about 4 bulbs per ft). I use a high quality fine glitter, seal them to keep the glitter intact and, I use a jute rope. Let me know in the comments... I may take pre orders. πŸŽ„β€

These last 2 days were a blur of early mornings, not good/long naps, spotty eating from distractions, and late bed times. That being said, this little dude was a TROOPER! Some fussing here and there but he was so happy to snuggle for rest, play and crawl his heart out, and enjoy the dirt and silliness that is the @texrenfest 
We were so happy to see an "old" friend and catch up on the time lost since we had last seen each other as well.

I created these fabulous pieces using vintage test tubes and spent 40 & 44 caliber bullet casings, that I etched and soldered to the test tube. The chain is adorned with vintage faux pearls and antique rhinestone rhondels.
The first one has a tiny found feather wrapped in the words: "A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers."
SOLD ~ The second one has a vintage pen nib wrapped with the words: " Words are the pen of the heart, but music is the pen of the soul."

3 more custom pieces for 2 more lovely clients. All of them were created using their family pieces. The 2 "charm" necklaces are all my client's father's. What a wonderful way to memorialize a loved one. πŸ’— The mother of pearl buckle is adorned with this client's grandmother's earrings. She's hoping it will be worn by a very special bride. πŸ’— Once again, no tags as they will be gifts.
.
Do you have bits and pieces from your loved ones? You don't know what to do with them. Maybe, sitting in a drawer? Unseen? Give them a new life, a new story... pass them on as wearable memorials of those loved ones. DM me for details. πŸ’— Christmas is coming 😘

It has been a minute since I last posted anything about my creations, other than the shop build. In a bit of a funk and finding it hard to find any creative inspiration... I feel like I'm coming down from a whirlwind of stress, no sleep and horrible diet... I just feel like yuck. Trying to "force" it by sitting and playing until something strikes my fancy. Earrings are a great way to do that. 😁

What helps you get back into the groove of what you do?

Working by lantern light... 8:30pm... tired... tomorrow is our last day to work before the "show must go on". Probably won't have the *grand reveal* I had envisioned... but, it will be what it is... it is beautiful, even if it is unfinished. This man (along with several others) has busted his βš½οΈβšΎοΈπŸ€πŸπŸˆπŸ‰ (πŸ˜‰) to build this. I love him more than words can say.

Working by lantern light... 8:30pm... tired... tomorrow is our last day to work before the "show must go on". Probably won't have the *grand reveal* I had envisioned... but, it will be what it is... it is beautiful, even if it is unfinished. This man (along with several others) has busted his βš½οΈβšΎοΈπŸ€πŸπŸˆπŸ‰ (πŸ˜‰) to build this. I love him more than words can say.

We worked on windows... we were able to get all the downstairs installed, except the 3 large farm house windows. We will do those tonight... and, maybe some of the upstairs windows, if I can get them painted today. I'm trying to decide what color to paint the French door... if it was staying in my house, I would leave it as is... but, for my shop, I think the outside needs a color. Maybe the same "yellow" I used on my floor stencil? πŸ€” 6 days until opening canon... holy πŸ’©

Before, during and sort of after (may add some antiquing to it πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ). I'm layering several different colors (hard to see in the picture). I found this set for $160... that's only $53 a piece!!!! They will be permanently fixed into the upper portion on my turret/tower. 😍

I love this window... I bought it for $20 πŸ˜„ (it only had a some of the small, square panes of clear glass left in it). I cleaned it, removed all the glass and replaced it all with beautiful stained glass. I've had to replace the caulk/glazing in most of the old windows I've gotten for my shop, but man oh man... this one is doing my head in. It has brought me to tears a couple of times πŸ˜₯ (mostly because of exhaustion from coming home from working on the shop all day and then getting frustrated). I'm trying clear caulk, now... it is still driving me mad... I can't stand how messy it looks... I just hope it will look better once it dries clear...🀞
Back to it...

Update part deux.
Sunday: Last day for construction. I'm hoping we got enough accomplished... I think we did. B, his dad, my brother, my daughter and son-in-law were all on deck kicking a$$. More staining, more painting, more trim and batton boards installed. We got all the windows ready to hang, but found out the hinges we bought won't work (damn it!). The windows still need to be painted... I'll work on that this week. We loaded the shop furniture into the shop and cleaned up the site. I can really see her coming to life... and, she will be beautiful. πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’–
B and I will be back out there tonight... it has been a lot of hard, sweaty work, late nights and early mornings... we are absolutely exhausted... we will get it done. 
Ended the weekend with a lovely roast and a dram of whisky with my brother and sister-in-law @redneckfengshui . Mary thank you for feeding us. πŸ€—πŸ’—
I love building forts with you @bikng_vikng but, it might be a while before I feel like building another one. 😘

Update... Part 1...
Thursday: B, my father-in-law and friend Roger started installing the trim boards.
Friday: It rained until early afternoon, so we made a makeshift, covered work area to stain boards. My son-in-law sprayed the interior walls. (Thank you @mistletoetradingco for the paint color suggestion, @behrpaint Swiss Coffee).
Saturday: We had an absolutely fabulous day... so many lovely people came out to help. My husband, brother, son-in-law, daughter, & father-in-law got the front doors installed, worked on trim boards, window trim, started adding the batton boards, stained the beams, stained boat loads of batton boards, @nerddad1990 & @soileau_bird of @a.s.isdesigns came out and built my shop ladder, created the upstairs banister, and bed platform (I didn't get a picture of that). It was an hive of activity at F1. So extremely grateful for all of the help. πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’—
Side note: The ladder was built using our old shop floor boards, the bannister was built using an antique gate from Galveston that my friend @annettepalmerart gave me and a corner post that our friend A.P. gave me many years ago. πŸ’—

Update for Mon, Tues, & Wed:
I have been meeting B up at the shop (after he gets off work) to work on the shop. B took today off and we worked all day. We had help from his dad and a friend, Roger, today. The weather has been cooperating, for the most part. I found a brand new heads up penny this morning... hope it brings all the luck. The shingles are almost done... we ran out of shingles 😫. After a few calls, we found 2 bundles in Cleveland (found some in Willis for $70 a bundle... wtf????!!! Yikes!) Anywhooo... tomorrow we will finish the roof, stain trim boards, install trim boards and whatever else we can do. We will get this done by Sunday, come hell or high water. Onward and upward. 
Needless to say, we are so grateful for all the help that we are receiving... please consider purchasing a tshirt or tank top to help us cover all the build costs. πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’—

Out here busting our tuchuses off to get done by Sunday... Wanted to send out a gentle nudge about the awesome Ts and tanks I have for sale... super awesome quality, they are long and, the logo is even more awesomer (I know grammar police) 😍 just size up. 
P.S. It is set up as a "fundraiser" so I don't have to order a specific amount of tshirts to place an order and spend money to buy said shirts that I need for the build. But, I am selling tshirts to raise funds to put toward my shop build.... so, technically, that still makes it a "fundraiser". A share would be way more awesomer even!!! 😘 Link to Ts πŸ‘‡ or in my profile πŸ’—

Saturday was a great day... we had a full crew, all day, and the rain held off. We were able to get all the siding up and stained, more fascia board up, some windows cut out, and more roofing done. .
Sunday was just B and I... we had planned on finishing the roof... we (when I say 'we' I mean Bryan... I'm just handing him shingles, tar paper, etc) were able to get one side of the turret/tower shingled and started on the opposite side when... let me just say that I'm *REALLY* grateful that Bryan was secured with his climbing ropes... B slipped off the ladder and swung into our neighbors booth. A few bumps and bruises, thankfully nothing broken... on him or our neighbors booth. So, we called it... .
I will be meeting B at the shop tonight... for more roofing. And, will continue all week, installing windows, etc... If you see us and we look like the walking dead... this is why... next weekend we will, hopefully, get all the rest done... hopefully... please, oh please. .

Yesterday was a really good day... we had a full crew. Eric, Ron, & Roger were all on deck and kicking ass... thankfully, the rain held off until we finished for the day. Eric and Roger got all the remaining siding installed, I got all the siding stained and, B got one side of the upstairs roof shingled (with the help of his dad). Today, it will be just B and I and we are hoping to get the other side of the roof done. 🀞 We are getting there. I'll post pictures after we finish today.

I will be reposting the t-shirt sale... please consider purchasing one. All the proceeds from the sale will go to purchase the remaining building supplies... we still have quite a bit to go. πŸ’—

Thank you Stephanie for your prayer this morning... πŸ’—

I wish for your hammer to stay true and your nails don't bend. May your battery operated power tools remain charged. May the ice in your beverage cooler...not melt. May your paint stay mixed up and free of F'ing bugs and pine needles. May many kind strangers and friends pass by with a helping hand (food??) May cool breezes abound. Rain after dark, Please and Thank you! I hope you find forgotten folding money in your pockets. And lastly... May the car bring you home with no drama later tonight !! And may you sleep like an angel !! ❀

Here is the link to my t-shirt sales. Please consider purchasing a t-shirt and/or sharing it. Remember to size up... they are awesome, excellent quality t-shirts... and the image is pretty cool, too 😘

This tiny antique medicine bottle as Chinese symbols embossed in it. With a little help, we ascertained that the "writing" may say: Hong Kong Kwong Sang International Trading Company or, possibly, it could be Kwong Sang Hong International. If it is the later, the company was founded in 1898, and traded in cosmetics. They currently develop, sell and lease properties and manufacture cosmetics. I love learning the history of the pieces I find 😍
The bottle has a slip of paper the reads "blessings" and is filled with German silver glass glitter and tiny vintage pearls. I soldered it closed with a band vintage rhinestones. The tiny Victorian era sterling silver heart is hanging from 100% USA made brass wire. The chain is, also, 100% USA made brass and has 2 tiny sterling silver beads. .
This piece is available for purchase. If you have any questions or would like to purchase, message me. Shipping is available in the US or internationally.

Yesterday was a rough day... it rained... a lot. 😫 We had to go move the shop furniture and some of my daughter's things out of our friends garage (lease ended) in the morning... did I mention it was raining... no, it was pouring... street flooding... I digress... thankfully, my father-in-law helped us with his big ass van.πŸ˜πŸ‘ Everything fit! Yay! We made it out to the shop, unloaded the furniture, covered it, and waited for the rain to subside... waiting... waiting... freaking out about time lost... We waited. The gods must have heard us, it stopped long enough to finish the downstairs roof.πŸ™Œ That was somewhat of a relief. After using up his vacation days, last week, to work on the shop, B had to return to work today. He'll be going up after work, every day this week, to try and work on stuff. Hopefully, the weather cooperates 🀞 We've got this... I hope 😏

It has been a while since my last update... suffice it to say, we have been VERY busy.πŸ˜“ I have loads of progress pics... but, I'm going to skip to yesterday. It rained... but, we kept working. No rest for the weary. B figured out a way to use a tree climbing harness to secure him on the roof, while he shingles. Brilliant!!!🌟 You can really see it coming together... and, that makes my heart happy.πŸ’• We still have a long row to hoe, and Mother Nature has decided that this was the time to rain. 😭🌧 More later.....

Sunday ended with B's truck dying... we had to replace the alternator (my brother and sister-in-law to the rescue, again!)
.
.

Yesterday and today's progress... the roof decking is complete and trimmed... FINALLY! .
.

B and I worked yesterday and B and my brother worked today. (I stayed home so I could take my mom and auntie to the airport... they're off to visit our family in Malta... that's always a hard day for me... anywhoooo) Now, we move forward... they have a plan... a really good plan. Extremely grateful for these fellas. Onward HO!!! .

As par for every other day, we didn't get as much done as we would have liked... alas, this turret/tower roof is going to be our undoing. My poor handsome fella busted his tail trying to get it all figured out. It has been a long, hot day (still here at 6pm). Tomorrow, we return and, hopefully, we will get this thing figured out so that we can move on to the next thing on the very long list of things to do... deadline is fast approaching (technically next weekend). Ya'll... send out the good vibes, thoughts, prayers... whatever your thing is... we would greatly appreciate it. Until tomorrow ✌😘

On our way back up to work on the shop... and, since we will be working on it all week, I thought I'd go ahead and post yesterday's progress.
.
We had a late start, yesterday... stress, long days and hard work are catching up. Anywhooo... B got all the wonky, side roof pieces cut and installed... lots of odd angles. I went and purchased our cedar shingles. Thankfully, we found some yesterday. Seems there is a shortage in the area. Lol... lots of upgrades going on at the fair.
.
Today we will work on the tower/turret roof and hopefully a few other things... this part of the roof is going to be a challenge... but, I know we will make it happen! Huzzah!
.
Hope you all have a fabulous day!

UPDATE: We have the answer (confirmed by 3 people)...
Hong Kong Kwong Sang International Trading Company. πŸ‘Œ
Per my sister in law @redneckfengshui: "If it could possibly be Kwong Sang Hong International, then the company was founded in 1898, and traded in cosmetics. They currently develop, sell and lease properties and manufacture cosmetics....it would make sense.....I wanted to know more, but this is about the closest I could find to the translation." .
.
.

This tiny, antique bottle has, what looks like, Asian writing embossed in it. I wish I could make them out better... but, even if I could, I wouldn't know how to translate them... Anyone out there know? Can you read it? I'm going to make a necklace out of it and I would really like to know what I'm passing along.

Took a break from shop build projects to work on some custom pieces that have been sitting around waaaayyyy too long. No where near complete, but it feels good to play around with all the bits until they tell me I'm on the right track... yes, they speak to me. πŸ€— Hoping that I'll get some more studio time tomorrow.
FYI... all of these custom pieces are made from the clients heirloom bits or keepsakes. πŸ’•

It was a HOT weekend... YIKES! The dynamic duo (my brother and husband) worked on the roof and I got the downstairs floor painted, sanded/scraped more windows and did a lot of copper foiling. The roof decking on the turret/tower still needs to be done and the rest of the roof decking will be trimmed. I need to stencil the floor. Really getting nervous about finishing on time... we, technically, only have 2 more weekends to work. B took the week before Labor Day off so we could work that whole week... Lord willin' and the crick don't rise, we will get it done!
.
Once again... my gratitude goes out to my brother and husband for their hard work. Thank you! πŸ’—

It's a cruddy pic... but, whatevs... this morning I went and picked up the 2 windows on the left on Stuebner Airline for $20... yep, that's right... $20 for both of them. Not each, for both... SCORE!! Then a friend sent me to an antique shop in Huntsville that had the one on the right marked down to $65! $85 for 3 windows! It was a lot of driving, I'm tired and I have a headache... but, Woooo Hooooo! 1 more small window and I'm calling it good (decided to go with 2 small windows in each panel of the turret/tower instead of 1 long, skinny one (those are hard to find in my price range). It will give it a more quirky look, anyway 😍

If you get a chance, check out my tshirt sale... every tshirt sold helps me pad the coffers to pay for building essentials... such as, plywood for siding, roofing materials, stain, etc... maybe, hopefully, a solar panel set up (we don't have electricity). Only a few more hours left to get your awesome Bits & Bobs t-shirt... link in my bio. You can read all about what we're doing there. Thank you for your consideration. πŸ’•

This... this is why I'm selling t-shirts and tank tops. Only one more day left, and you won't see anymore annoying t-shirt posts πŸ˜‰ and, soon, I'll get back to posting pictures of my life, my inspirations and all the gorgeousness that I create... but, for now, this. 
They are great t-shirts (just size up) and the proceeds will go toward buying building supplies. It would be awesome if I could sell 7 more. If these aren't your thing, please share... maybe someone out in the social media land would love one 😘 link in my bio... click on the linktr.ee πŸ’•

Yesterday was a bad day... I should have walked away when I saw that the "windows" were actually cabinet doors... NOT EVEN vintage cabinet doors. But, I let my fear of time running out, of not finding windows and time and gas wasted (2 hour round trip) make a bad decision... I should have kept my $60 and walked away... now, I've lost $60, I have 2 cabinet doors that I probably can't sell, and I'm back to hunting for more windows for my tower/turret. I let all that drag me down, yesterday... I beat myself up... should have, would have, could have... that was yesterday. 
So, today is a new day and I'm pulling my big girl britches on and moving forward... time to start hunting for more windows and tackling something else on my VERY long list of things I have to do before TRF opens on Sept 29. Let's do this!!! Please, if you haven't yet, head over and check out the t-shirts and tank tops I have for sale. The proceeds will help us buy needed building supplies, like roofing, stain, siding, etc. The t-shirts are great quality, just size up. Sale ends tomorrow. 😘 link in my profile bio (linktr.ee)
