Grand Opening of Valerie Tyler Designs Retro Collection

I'd like to help celebrate and promote the opening of my fellow Cleveland Handmade artist, Valerie Tyler's new Etsy Store. My love of vintage and retro leads me right into her shop. She is a talented artist and does a terrific job creating pieces with the time tested classic feel. She's stocked her store with all sorts of vintage style goodness, including some classic black and white pieces in her Classic Noir Collection, Art Deco and Retro Mod style jewelry, jewelry with a touch of yesteryear and Victorian flair, and pieces with a nostalgic look. Check out her blog before Feb. 8th for a chance to win one of her creations. Here’s a few examples of what you can discover:

Serve up some snow

Anyone care to sit down and devour some of this snow? I know it's only January and there is a lot of winter left...BUT.

The upside side to the snow is that I am getting a lot accomplished indoors. I have new ideas for brooches and other repurposed jewelry. Stay tuned. I'll post them here soon!

In the meantime. Enjoy the snow. I think tomorrow will be warm enough for me to take the grand kids sledding.....then later the temp will drop. Artic deep freeze.
