Coming to CREATE - White Wednesday

We're linking up with Faded Charm for White Wednesday and bringing you an eclectic mix today. Shopping at CREATE will be talented artists that utilize found objects in imaginative ways.  We'll be offering a wide variety of things for their artistic pursuits, including some that happen to be white!   And don't worry if you can't make it to CREATE, a similar group of items will accompany us to Junk Bonanza.

From my stash of grain sacks...
(and if you can't get to the shows some are available on etsy 
*update 8/25; all recently listed bags on etsy have sold, will list more soon)

Gumball prizes. 
"pleeeeeeze Mom, can I just have a quarter?"

In the 1960's, studios sent ad mats out
to the theaters to use for newspaper ads

Who doesn't love lace & trim?

And lastly, a different kind of white...a wedding gown!  When a Mom has only sons, the girls they marry become very important to her. Nine years ago we got our first beautiful 'daughter' when Matt married Jori. This past weekend, Jesse & Lori were wed.  We couldn't be happier for them...or for us!

    I was one of those kids who would beg for a quarter for the machine, praying I would get a "diamond" ring!
