Tomorrow’s the day!

Standard

Tomorrow morning we head for Kansas City for the Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Festival. Since I usually do fall craft shows I had to change up my displays a little!  Instead of  my usual dark browns and warm fall colors I used tea dyed muslin layered with some of my vintage crocheted doilies and tablecloths, mostly made by family members ranging from my mom and aunt to my grandmother and great grandmother.  Since I wasn’t sure how it would all look, I set up my tables in the dining room for a test run-

My two mannequins, Bev and Lucy, are sporting a couple of the tablecloths as skirts! The dining room table is loaded with stuff to be priced and packed.

I have two of these little drawers with dividers in them that I love to use as earring displays – wish I had a bunch more!

This little ceramic dresser tray was my Mom’s, and adds a girlie touch in soft pink.

Some necklaces packed and ready to go. Sorry for the poor picture quality – my camera doesn’t do well in low lighting (probably because I don’t have a clue how to use it!)

Guess I’d better get back to work – lots left to price and pack up!

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.

  1. Love your displays, especially the little drawers with dividers. They seem made for your vintage earrings. Best of luck with the show.

  2. Love your set up. The earring drawers are the greatest. I’ll keep my eyes open for more for you. I hope you are having a very successful event. Can’t wait to hear about it. Must be great people watching and those coming to your “booth” have to be pretty savvy and aware of your talents.
