Well,another Mermaid's Mercantile has come and gone and it was fabulous! As planned the grand unvieling of the new shop sign happened,and the new name is,...

House Vintage!
I love it and so did everyone else,it now really fits the personality of the shop.
Snacks were served after the big reveal and the caprese sandwiches were delicious.
Nick took a few photos of some of our friends,click on the links to check out some of their amazing work.
This is Genie and she has some of the coolest recycled-upcycled stuff. The hat she's wearing is made using mens neck ties,I traded her for one and I love it! Check out her etsy shop.

This is Poppy,she creates the most gorgeous jewelry using sea glass,she gathers this glass herself all up and down the California coast.
This is Olga another wonderful jewelry artist. You always find her working on pieces and Nick and I both have some of her work in our collections.
As Nick and I packed up at the end of the day the new moon was hovering over the buildings.We were tired,but we had a fun day. Thank you to all the customers who came out to visit and purchase from us and the other vendors,it was much appreciated.
Also,this is my 99th post,so the next one is the big 100! I will have a give away for this,so keep an eye out and tell all your friends to check out my blog and enter in the give away too!

Art in the Yard fun!

Home at last! My brother had some appointments in LA for his cancer treatments,so I spent Thursday out there with him. Friday my mom and I finished getting the Thanksgiving supplies and we even got a few things for Christmas! Saturday I sold my wares at the Art in the Yard show and as always I had a wonderful time.

 There I am under the ginko tree.
The mini tree was loaded with acorn ornaments!

Is this the one you would like to purchase?
That's my friend Jo,...she's and amazing artist and she had some beautiful prints and a few of the original canvases.
This is a closer look at Jo's work.
After the show I went out to dinner with Jo and our friend Nancy. Whenever we get together there is always alot of brain storming about art,shows,dance,conferences,food,and so much more,and the laughter,omg,I'm sure some of the tables nearby were overwhelmed by it.  All in all,it was a very good day.
All photos in this post were taken by my friend Nancy.

Hi everyone! I have an idea that I hope some of you might like to be a part of. Since alot of us are starting our holiday decorating,I thought it might be fun to trade ornaments. I will send you one of my acorn ornaments,(the colors will vary),and you send me an ornament that you have made. Oh, and these acorns are made with a larger cap,so the ornament is about 2 inches in length. It's just that simple,a handmade ornament for a handmade ornament.
If you would like to trade with me,just email me with your address and i will email you mine. I would like to try and have this all done before the end of November,so let me know as soon as you can and we can all get some fun mail soon.
