Shopping in San Francisco

I recently took a trip to San Francisco - I was on a mission to find vintage and altered inspired pieces
Walking down a very steep hill I stumbled upon Kati Koos
what a treasure, the store was filled with my hearts desire and More!

Fun whimsical folk art

Loved this:::: Wicked Witches Undies

Diana Frey is truly amazing, her jewelry is showcased here, I was so happy to have finally see her pieces "live and in action"

Love Dolly Head pieces- her soldered bodice is filled with ribbon and vintage sparkle

This Lovely was guarding the case with all the Fun Sally Jean pieces

I was so loving the look of this::: especially like the big black X

Saved my Favorite for last::::
Kati (owner of the shop) is so very talented and creative, she has fused together two amazing clothing designers in her displays throughout the store
Ultra feminine with an edgy theatrical flare-
Kati posts a newsletter on her website that showcases the amazing pieces check it out

Christmas in July

My fun and ever so clever friend Jackie is hosting art meet up today in her art studio-if you've never gone , you should- it's absolutely free and always an inspired fun time. The theme is Christmas in July:::

I transformed one of those small round tins that are sold for storing beads and such into a vintage sparkle fest;)

coated the outside with Mica flakes, I am so in the mood for creating Christmas goodies, all the fun with out the rush to spoil the creative flow

My new obsession;)

I have always admired Deb's silk flowers- she makes them the best by far:::: she shared her technique with me and now I cant stop making them!

Deb also turned me on to this fabric, It is absolutely wonderful working with this type of silk, it has a sheen to it that is so vintage.
We played with some painters drop cloth and made a soft chain, this pretty little lady will be available at Paper Tales after the 17th of July- I plan to doll her up with vintage jewels and buttons , Thank you Deb for inspiring me so, you are a true Gem
