I know the blog has been quite neglected for awhile, but there are changes coming with the Autumn winds….
The beginning of the year was quite tough with the passing of friends and family members. I took time and reevaluated much of my life. One thing that became clear was that I had to change elements of my work. I gave several months notice at my main job and will be focusing more on freelance and my stores come October. I promise more frequent posts!
I have cut down on some of my “making stuff” the last few months to focus on building the vintage store, setting my studio/office up, and wrapping up the current job. I hope to be back on track soon with some larger creative projects. I am posting pictures of some of the smaller “wintery” and “surreal” craft projects I have been able to work on. A couple figures are on Etsy in “The Haunted Lamp” along with some patriotic items, bottle brush trees, and a few traditional ornaments.
I am happy with the progress and with the support my vintage store, Haunted Lamp Vintage, is finding. I only sell things I love, collect, and use myself. It is reassuring to know there are others out there with my quirky tastes and eclectic interests. This Fall there are many new items that will be added to the store including more vintage millinery, buttons, and findings. I have collected (hoarded) many of these things for years and I think I now have enough to share. Expect to see some vintage home items as well because my closets and garage are overflowing…..
