Small businesses...Big dreams...

The work table has been messy lately.
Glitter, lace, stamps,


Buttons, vintage jewelry and postcards....


An order of altered books is being sent to a new store, new for us, that is.
Some of you have probably visited
"The Hen House" in Lafayette, California
If you have you know how much fun this place and it's owner La Contessa are!

If you are far away, you can always visit the Hen's website: HERE

Another store carrying our stuff is "The Cottage" in Laguna Beach
The girls at the Cottage have been selling lots of altered books and are now carrying our pillow covers....

We came up with some exclusive designs for this wonderful store...
Sexy mermaids...


and vintage Laguna postcards perfect for tourists looking to take home a little California fun..

Thank you so much to these 2 stores and all the other small businesses around the country that help us and many artists and stay at home moms pursue a dream...
and thanks to YOU for supporting your local small store!

I've always wanted to be a sexy mermaid! If only I still lived at the beach...

Wish Country Roads was "at" the beach! Then I could have cool mermaids, shells, ocean themes. Your amazing talent NEVER ceases to amaze me!
Take care, Sue

You are very talented.

And as I couldn't visit the Hen House personally, I visited the website.

Thanks for sharing!
