Vintage2Glam is my idea of reusing vintage goodies, and turning them into something Glam. I love taking vintage finds, and make them modern with wonderful colors and a vintage twist..... love to incorporate them into my own vintage inspired art an accessories. Pleased to say that my jewelry was worn my Ellen Burstyn in the movie "GRETA" starring Ellen and Hillary Duff filmed in historical town of Ocean Grove N.J.

fabric swatch exchange

this was a fabric exchange run by the magazine Cloth Paper Scissors

you were to design a piece of fabric using any technique you chose

and then cut the fabric into eight 9" x 9" swatches and send them in

you in turn will receive 6 swatches from artists all around the country...this is the package I just received.

Ocean Grove Flea market finds...

LOVE  all the goodies I found,  a great silver purse, an adorable  floral bag to the brightest colored Hawaiian shirt,

a mini vintage chair, great sparkly bangles, hand mirror, pink plate, vintage necklace, purple china covered bowl and of course the best pretzels.....

I met one of my art students Mary-Ellen and her husband Donald while in Ocean Grove today.  It was a nice surprise bumping in to her....We were so nicely surprised when she took us to see her incredible waterfront condo.....this was her front door, you can see she is a talented paper artist before you even step inside.....once inside I was amazed at the view, the colors, and all her great paper projects. Thanks for the tour Mary-Ellen.  Hope to see you for some  more classes at the cottage this summer. xoxo
