Warehime-Myers Mansion hosts Holiday to Harvest Show and Simply Pretty Stuff

Simply Pretty Stuff  To Be At The Holiday Show At The Mansion On 
 November 4, 5, and 6 in Hanover, PA

This is a holiday show with fellow artisans.  I love being there and am so pleased that in the past 4 years, it has grown in attendance beyond expectations. I am one of six gals who worked hard to make it all happen.  Thanks to elves Toni Burns, Cheri Cline, Lisa Elsner, Jeanette Miller and Cel Smith.

This year, Santa is making an appearance, as well as  the Hanover High School Choir, directed by Deb Smith.  On auto harp, in two additional performances, will be Linda Huber.

The show will be located at the Hanover Historical Society's Warehime-Meyers Mansion on Baltimore Street in Hanover, PA.  There will be plenty to see and artists to meet, as well as plenty of yummy refreshments.

Hope to see you there!!

Flip Flop Couture

Flip Flop Style On A Dime

OK, I know summer was yesterday and fall is now.  However, who could resist one dollar flip flops??  Tis the time of year these babies are found here and there for just a buck.

A plain Jane, I am not.  Therefore the dollar flip flops evolved.  With a bit of black silk ribbon ( can make by cutting scrap silk on a bias), I made two little bows and hand sewed them to the top of each flip flop. 

The next part was easy.....I picked up hand made posies at the Summer In Paris Retreat in Harper's Ferry, VA in August.  A working mom, and artist, Jennie Gift, sold pins and barretts made from ribbons and pearls at the vendor show during the conference.  Rather than wear these flowers in my hair, I thought they would make cute flip flop adornments! Snip, I cut them free from their hair pins and hot glued them to the bows.  Ready for wear.......NEXT summer.  ; )
