That is the carrot. What comes first is the textile: dresses, curtains, tablecloths, bedspreads, throws; anything made of cloth that is sheer enough to allow light to pass through is what I search for…”  READ MORE

Suz Davis celebrates Halloween with a series of fun, childlike pieces full of both design flair and recycled bits and bobs.

Keri Joy Colestock



I am an artist who loves life & her family.  I began my ‘Wall Dancers’ in 2002. Each was an original, hand-crafted with love, so no two would ever be alike! They are made from polymer clay, wire & beads and possibly any other ‘fun’ things I may run across.  READ MORE

Recreate Suitcase Chair Black Leather 2 Seater


How often are you meandering through an antiques store or a great junk shop wondering how you could justify purchasing this funky old bit of whatever? You just really like it. But WHERE could you put it and HOW could you make practical use of it so your significant other doesn’t roll their eyes at yet another dollar dropped on nostalgia?
