It's been a busy couple of weeks at the studio and in general for that matter.  I can't believe Christmas is just 3 days away!!  I'm thrilled to say that I have finished all my shopping, just have some last minute wrapping to do....and after seeing all the traffic around the mall today I must say I'm delighted that I don't have to endure all the chaos.
I've added some new products in my shop that I'm really excited about! (and have MANY more projects in the works for the near future :))

I was able to find some great things at our local goodwill and thrift shops over the past week and am excited to give the "old" some new life :)
First I found these candle sticks.  

I also found this night stand

and the trunk that is in the background lol....sorry I must have forgot to take a "before" picture of that one!

Here is the "after" of the night stand.  I removed the hardware, sanded it all down and painted it a crisp white with a pop of turquoise inside the drawers.
Next I distressed it and then finished it off with some of my glass hardware.  This was my inspiration.

 I really love the way it turned out.  Pictured below are 2 of the candle sticks ....need to get a better "after" shot of those.

 Here is the trunk....sorry again for the lack of the before picture.  Just imagine it dirtier and without "feet".....I cleaned it up really well and added some legs that I painted black.

 I just love how it all came together and it's the perfect place to display some of the great things in my shop!

I also found some great little glass tea cups and decided they would be perfect with some succulents.  

Well, that's it for sure to check back soon for more furniture projects!

Handcrafted Glass Mini Oil Lamps

As is something I've been working on.  I needed a little break from all that is lighting and thought I would create a different sort of light :)  These little mini oil lamps were just what I needed to change things up a bit mentally and creatively.  The are about 2.5" x 2" and I love them!! I think I'm also going to make some little custom glass tops and turn some into perfume bottles.

Studio Move Update

If you've been to this blog in the recent past and noticed it was moved, your probably wondering why in the world I am now posting here again (and duplicate posting at that if you have been to my blog on my website)....let's just say I'm trying to complicate things :)  I moved my blog because my awesome new website has a blog built in, but now am bringing this one back up to speed because I am starting a NEW website (a sister site really) that also has a blog built in, but don't ya know they want me to use blogger for that site....grrrr why can't it just all be easy??'s not that big of a deal and I think it's really quite worth it because the new site is strictly a shop for all of my glass lighting, art, decor and gifts!!!  yay- really when you think about it!
So in trying to keep this blog up to is my latest post!

This post is actually quite outdated…but I wanted to update you :)  I finally moved my studio, well actually I moved all my things just before market and unpacked as soon as I got back from market.  I have been in the new space for a couple of weeks now and must admit I like it better than the other studio that was literally just down the hall.

Be sure to stop by and check it out in person!!!  Lots of new goodies!!  Will post one of my latest newest creations hopefully tomorrow!
