A Paris Street Market Thank You

Thank you to all who stopped by to say hello. It was great to see you and I wish I could have visited with you more. The challenge with outdoor shows obviously is the weather. I am still learning the best way to display items. The key word is learning. The sky was clear, the temperature was perfect, however it was a little windy. I think some of my small boxes may be found today in somewhere in Littleton. Oh well, I hope whoever finds them will enjoy. Below are pictures before the wind gusts. I need to send a big thank to my sister Piper for all her help holding down the fort - or tent in this case.

Bird Picture on 11 by 14 canvas
A sweet couple bought this bird picture for their cabin. They are coming back to the July 4th show for more pictures. The wife needed to see just how much wall space she had left. Her husband just smiled and handed me his credit card - so sweet.

A Paris Street Market June 6, 2009

The second Paris Street Market of the season in June 6th from 8-3. The weather forecast looks great and should be a perfect day to walk around Aspen Grove and look at the more than 120 antique dealer and artist booths. For directions visit:

New tissue box cover design based on an 1800s French Textile painting with a trinket box to match. Writing desk image from an antique biology book.

I am in space number 20, so please drop by and say hello. As promised here are a few of the things I have been working on. All blog readers will receive a 10% discount. Hope to see you tomorrow.

La Vache at A Paris Street Market

I believe "La Vache" is the French word for cow. Pictured are a few of the"La Vache" items I will have at the upcoming Paris Street Market this Saturday from 9-3 space #20 rain or shine. For directions, please go to

The 9" x 12" canvas features a beautiful image of a cow next to a fence. The 5" x 7" canvas features a Milk Maiden with her cows. Both images are from my collection of Victorian-era trade cards. The Staffordshire reproduction Milk Maiden may not make it to the market, but might find a home in my kitchen. More sneak peaks to come this week...
