Red, White, and Blue...

Red, White, and Blue handpainted softballs. Picked these up the at the Springfield Extravaganza this past weekend.  They were in a basket just yelling at me to do something with them.   Each ball is painted in a different pattern, crackle finish and antiqued, to make a nice display in a prim bowl or basket.

Ink wells...

I recently recieved a huge shipment of antique glass inkwells...all different colors and shapes, plus five Carters Ink wells with the rust lids intact.  Then, today I recieved a shipment of over 50 handwritten letters and documents from the late 1800's and other paper ephemera to make my ink bottle viginettes....they will be soooo cool looking!!!!  Now I have to sit down and make my quill feathers with the pen nibs....Anyone looking to order them let me know.

Well, it appears only two people 'entered' my give-away by posting comments, and rather than do the "enny, menny, minny, mo"  thing, both Lynn and Chris will recieve a bottle encapsulating the meaning of their name.  Please email me ( with your address so I can get them out to you.  Please give me a couple of weeks to get them completed.  Thanks to both of you for following me.
