" Felting my new passion"

" Sea scape I made in class.. I bought the deep frame at Michaels craft store...
This is a cuff I made, Shrunk a old wool sweater for the band I felted, then lined it with floral cotton fabric with button closer..
Thank You Cindy from " Crimson Hearts Desire" for the wonderful felting class... My sister Gena is visiting from Wisconsin. I thought it would be fun to take a  art class doing something different....Well Girls this was truly a fun fun class to take. Cindy has a amazing studio in her home full of the most fabulous original mixed media pieces...She does Shows and teaches classes, call her for schedule( 805-343-2999)  The first pic is the seascape I did in Cindy's class, the ones following are some pieces I'm making to sell in the Shop..Thanks Cindy for all your inspiration... Cindy will also be at the 3 Speckled Hens Show in Paso Robles Fairgrounds first week-end in May...You will be Amazed!!!!  So lovin  how this tote turned out.....Hugs Chrisy

" Fall 2014" Chrisy's Cottage

Hello every one,,, happy Fall...I am loving this beautiful dresser set with over sized knobs...Just beautiful.
Lot's of new Fall arrivals for you to come and see..The shop is bursting at the seams, and new product arriving daily.....
Don't forget to think of us for your Halloween needs...Lot's of party ideas..
New Boho Gypsy tribal bags.. bring on the color...
Were ever we live, we want a peaceful home filled with things we find beautiful..Be it a birds nest or a opulent chandelier..Down sizing to a smaller home and still making use of everything I love has been a challenge these last 3 years...But being able to live by the beach has given the tranquil, peace of mind I've been searching for all my life...I know I belong here... I like the idea you can take something tiny and seemingly insignificant , and it can become something Great!! I gather what I like and put it together   and it works.. I don't feel like I have to stay in one style.. My look has a little bit of everything I love...There is something unique in the way rustic & refined elements work together.They just highlight each other beautifully...It's Fall, so go for a walk and brighten up rooms with the best from the great outdoors.... creating a nature inspired vignette is the perfect way to appreciate Mother nature....Sorry it's been so long between blogs, But I'm feeling better every day, and would love to see you... Hugs Chrisy
