Trying something new!

Found this new gadget with a new way to show our photos – I like it because it give you all more control over the images and because the advertising is gone.  What do you think? Like it?  What about these photos?  This is just a trial run, so please – tell me what you think!!

And see you downtown!!

Broken Pieces Upcycled

Gotta tell you about two vendors that I know I have told you about before, but both have brought in all kinds of new pieces for their collections, and I think I have new favorites!

OH BABY!  has created several of her one of a kind “Angels of Reclaim” – most of them are made from vintage hardware.  Check these out!

 Angels of Reclaim - Oh Baby! 

Angel of Reclaim - OH BABY! 

Broken vintage plates aren’t just for the trash can anymore!  Not in the hands of Rachel Wainwright, jewelry artist.  Rachel takes vintage dishes and gives them a new life, shaping them into all kinds of unique jewelry items.  Just look at these items – ponytail holders, necklace pendants, bobby pins and now BUTTONS!

Junky Monkey’s Christmas Fun

Junky Monkey has moved back in to ARTIfacts for some holiday fun!  You can always count on Ms Junky for her fun twist on Holiday Decor!  Just check these out!

DSCF1107 Frosty is already on this great old chair – you don’t have to do anything but carry it home, put it on your front porch, and you have a great display for the winter season – not just for Christmas!


This old bicycle wrapped in vintage Christmas lights is just plain fun!  As is the picket fence post with the holiday ribbon and “Merry Christmas” spelled down the front. DSCF1112

Junky has outdone herself with her decorating style in a quick and easy display – this box with one single light and vintage ornaments and the coveted (at least by me!) bottle brush trees. Just plug this in and place on a table top and you are set to go! DSCF1114

This mini chalkboard is wonderful for seasonal notes, and even just “good morning” notes!  And at this price, you really can’t beat this stylish message board! DSCF1115

don’t want to leave out Thanksgiving – Junky has lapel button brooches – and no worries – The Dollhouse is going to load us up with her Christmas style brooches soon enough!


DSCF1117 DSCF1118

I love this snowman kit – just add snow!


Gotta have your postcard on a stick DSCF1122 



See you downtown for more amazing one of a kind holiday decor!
