Debuting this Saturday... Confectionique!

If you're in the area this weekend you simply CANNOT miss the debut of Confectionique in Middleton. It is a treat for the senses, in inspiration for your soul. You'll surely find a treasure or two just calling your name... This place is hard to resist!

This fabulous monthly market shop is the inspiration of Jessica and Anastasia, crafting sisters at heart. From their blog, a concise description of the wonderland they've created:

"We are two crafting sisters dedicated to finding forgotten vintage trinkets and crafting them into treasures. Confectionique is a monthly craft market where we get a chance to show our crafts as well as treasures created by other local artists/crafters. Let us bring a bit of "joie de vivre" to your Saturday! And thanks for taking a peek of Confectionique!"

Truly magical...

wonderfully whimsical...

indeed an inspiration!

I'm honored to be a part of first ever Saturday Confectionique market along with my friend Beth from Green Cricket Salvage. It will be open from 10 am to 4 pm this Saturday, April 24th, and is located at Morey Airport in Middleton. Be sure and mark your calendar with these upcoming Market dates:

May 8
May 22
June 19
July 11 (Sunday market)

Say HI to Jessica and Anastasia for me when you stop in to check it out... I will be vending at the Spring Fling Craftacular the same day. Wish I could be two places at once!

Going Yo Yo!!

With two shows coming up this weekend I've been busy preparing a few new items for Whimsy House... going Yo Yo! I've always loved the cheerful nature of fabric yoyos and have a few beautiful genuine vintage table runners in my collection. Inspired by these treasures I've come up with yoyo rings, earrings and pins all fashioned from vintage feedsack themed fabric with old buttons, beads and flower findings.

Aren't they fun and perfect for spring into summer? I just love them... hope you do too! Looking forward to the Spring Fling Craftacular and Confectionique Market April 24th... Hope to see you there.
