New local artist!

We have a new local artist at Cottage Garden II, named Ashley. She uses vintage necklaces and embellishes them with crowns, wings and birds. We have been doing so great with her things.

Her bracelets are just so special too.

She uses old keys in a lot of her jewelry.

This bracelet is such a cool piece. The background was from an old label of a liquor bottle, then she encrusted it with a wing, the bracelet is big black faceted beads.

Love this necklace with old prisms and a cross charm that she made.

A wing and an old key again, a great combination.....

Love this necklace, of course because I love the bird theme. This is a regal bird with its crown atop its head.

Another thing Ashley does are these coursages out of old fabrics and adds an old rhinetstone earring or button or brooche in the middle and then she puts a big clip on the back so you can wear on your sweater or in your hair. These have been flying out of the shop. I do need to call her to make more. They really add a nice touch to the outfit........
We are finally close to French Market day, March 6th, hope you all can make it out for our event. We will be having lots of fabulous things happening that day. Our vendors are set and include, blinged out bra straps, oh so frenchy, tutus for the little girls, flower headbands, a baker who is making french baugettes, sourdough bread, Shelleys desserts with her adorable cupcakes, lemon squares and more, handpainted silk scarves, and jewelry, and a couple of gals who will be bringing their vintage finds. The French mime will be walking around and entertaining everyone.
On Tuesday morning between 9am and 10am we will be on channel 10 and in the afternoon between 4:30pm and 5:00pm we will be on channel 12 talking about our Paris in Spring day. Tune in if you get a chance.
SEE YOU ALL SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ooh La La...........
