Upcycled & Vintage: and a Happier New Year!

I loved this phrase – a Happier New Year – and had to use it! And it won’t be difficult,

after 2020, so take a deep breath, and think of happy things – the power of positive thinking does work – if we do the work! I’ve started receiving summer show applications!

I haven’t many photos to share as I only had one in person holiday shop, at Summit Artspace. It was sooo nice to see so many friendly faces, although masked and from 6 feet away! And I’m grateful for all the online shopping  www.fineartfindings.com thank you! Only one mini tree remains! If there’s something there that you need – remember, local pickup is available – just let me know and I’ll remove the shipping fees and we can schedule something! You’ll find lots of my of my #upcycled items, #giftsyoufeelgoodabout  fun #vintage and my Mom’s yarn! She used to own a fantastic yarn shop in Bath, and is ready to part with some of the yarn. #momsyarndestash

Upcycled & Vintage #artinquarantine

How is everyone holding up during these uncertain times? With all of the galleries closed and the art festivals cancelled or postponed, we have a little distraction planned for you tomorrow! I was invited by artist friends Deborah Shapiro and Vicki Prussak to be part of their first Towpath Online ArtFest Saturday, April 4, 2020. It’s starting at 10 am, but continuing, well, forever, because its online! This is a new concept, where we each made a short video of our booth like you would find at an art fair! So, I piled up all of my furniture in one end of my living room, and set up by booth! You can find these and many more of my #upcycled items and #giftsyoufeelgoodabout in my ETSY shop.

I know I always say to call me with framing, which you know I would love it if you do, but there will be a bit of a delay as I’ve turned the framing table into a sewing table to make face masks for those at risk, and well, all of us are at risk! So #staysafe #stayhome #artinquarantine #upcycledfacemasks #fineartservices #fineartfindings #upcycled #vintage

Art & Antiques – Building Boxes – Up – Down – In – Out

Up – Down – In – Out – When I’m not busy with custom framing, I make stuff out of the leftover moulding. In the bottom right is a tiny frame that will be a tiny mirror – it’s made from cutting the moulding with the lip facing in like a traditional frame. Then I cut  the rest of the scraps with the lip facing out, or up or down! Same piece of wood – totally different look and uses. Then comes the fun part, by adding more, more, more layers of mouldings and vintage stuff and glitter wheels, I can make something totally fabulous and here’s the start to that one!

Watch for these and many more of my #upcycled items and #giftsyoufeelgoodabout at my shows this summer, and some are in my ETSY shop as well as great ideas for #valentinesday! PLEASE call me with framing projects as I haven’t left the house in days! #fineartservices #fineartfindings #upcycled #vintage
